My Maven (substitutions) for everyone

Recommended Posts

It's about time! I thought it was dumb that they waited this long. This is a win for me, since I don't have many holes in my nail polish collection but I am a fan of Julep's skincare and nail care. I will wind up taking a box more often because of it.

 

Can someone who's had My Maven for a while verify how it works for those of us who have watched from the sidelines? Is there a limit to which products you can sub into your box? Like, could I go crazy and do three bottles of Rethink Your Shower if I wanted while still keeping the original price?

Glad you have decided to join in on the Julep fun @@lamplighter! :) I've been with Julep since almost day one but then cancelled and started back up again about a year go. I've only skipped a few times. I just think for the price it's a great value. I like their skin care and make up too. My last box was two nail polishes and an eye shadow. Before that my boxes included add-ons. You can add on how ever many products you want on top of your features box and most of them are at discount so it's really hard not to go overboard with the add-ons especially since you get an extra gift if you add-on 3 items or more. You can modify the box to just include nail polishes but not sure if you can pick 3 of the same colors. I've never tried to do that. Hopefully someone knows.

Very cool, thanks! I've been a member for two years but I've always used the original non-substituting format (too cheap to spring for the extra $5 for My Maven). If there wasn't a box that appealed I skipped. I think this new change is so smart for them, because there'll be a reason for me to take a box almost every month now. A lot of the skincare will wind up almost as low-priced as secret store prices, and taking a box = Jules. It's a win for me, anyway.

When I signed back up I didn't upgrade to the option of changing the box either. I got frustrated after a few months and figured it was worth the extra cost because I've been able to make the boxes exactly how I want them. So much better this way.

I never upgraded to the new box format so am excited to now be able to customize and/or skip boxes at the $19.99 price.  I've gotten to the point where I enjoy their skincare/makeup as much as the polishes (if not more) so am excited I can now add them on!

    • So interested and following this one... I am an optometrist and see quite of few patients in my office with lash extensions...I know it is the current obsession, but I am not a fan....just curious to hear a little info on why people gravitiate to them. I worry about the risk of infections and obvious the fact the lashes break off and are unhealthy after the patient stops wearing them. We offer great lash serum options (Rodan+Fields and RevitaLash) in my office and to me they are a safer option and for most do give some really great results

    • Nice. Thanks for sharing this. Wearing makeup is common place in today's society, worn for anything from a day at work to a formal night out. Makeup may do magical things, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. Applying a basic, natural look doesn't require a lot of skill or tools. You can do lots of the blending with your fingertips, and choose to leave out certain products if they don't appeal to you. So have no fear: enjoy the process and your fresh, glowing face!
    • What is a good ,lightweight and affordable sunscreen? Any Suggestions...
    • There are so many recipes to make clear lip gloss at home. The easiest I say is using plain tocopherol T50 vitamin E oil in a roll on bottle. It was works wonders. Apart from glossy lips it heals dry chapped lips. A cheaper version of the gloss is castor oil. Castor oil is thick and glossy. A little of beeswax or/and shea butter too can be added. A recipe with castor oil, shea butter and castor oil. Castor oil 8 grams Shea butter 1 gram Beeswax 1 gram. I know it is quite difficult to make with such small measurements. Can multiply with 3 or 5 and you get 3 or 5 lip gloss roll on. Take all the three ingredients in a microwave save bowl, heat in short span of 5 seconds till everything is melted. Add flavour oil. (A lip safe flavour oil can be added for some fragrance and taste. Just a drop or two is more than enough for each roll on bottle.) Let it cool. Fill in roll on bottles or tubes or just any smallest container you have.
