Julep September Product Lover's Mystery Box

  I got an email from Julep about this Mystery Box, there were two choices: Polish Lovers and Product Lover's box. You are guarantied at least $60 worth of product and you can get up to $200(a few lucky ones will). This box was $19.99 with free shipping, same as a monthly Julep Maven box.

Freebie Julep tote.

Here's what I got :

Fast dry top coat: Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20. This top coat is really good, makes my nail polish stay on longer and not chip. I like this, but I love my Seche Vite too much, so now I don't really use it much.

Mystery color: Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20. Same size as any other nail polish, so I'd say it's the same price. This is a cremé dark taupe-ish color with a hint of olive green in it. I really loved this color and think it will work for fall.

Crystal Nail File: Regular Price: $6/Maven Price: $4.80. I love this item, cuz it will last for a while (or might not cuz I drop everything). It works just like it should and I'm happy with it, it's my go to file now.
Julep Glow on age Defying Hand Brightener: Regular price:$32.00/Maven Price:$25.60. This product smells amazing. I'm really picky with scents because some scents might give me a headache, but this one doesn’t give me a headache and stays for a while. Your hands will smell good without it annoying you and my skin absorbed it really fast! I gave this to my bf's mom cuz I don't think I need to be using any kind of anti aging products yet, since I'm only 21.

Total Value: $66
Total Value for Mavens: $52.80

 I'm not really happy with this box, cuz I really only liked 2 items (nail polish and file) so it wasn't really worth my time and money. I promised myself I wouldn't get another Julep Mystery box, but I fell for it again in October. Now I know, I won't fall for a "mystery" box again. I love Julep, but I'm happy with their monthly service, these mystery boxes just won't do for me. I won't cancel Julep anytime soon, but I won't buy these anymore.
