Yep, they exist.
After I subscribed to the Birchbox monthly deluxe sample club, and blogged about it, I had several emails asking if I knew of other beauty trial/sample clubs.
So I spent some time searching the internet and reading fashion magazines and came across several. I was surprised how many there are.
Well, needless to say I added myself to several waiting lists (like I had to do with Birchbox) and ordered from others. This way I can examine the pros and cons of each one and share with you which is the best for the money.
The first club I received their intro package too was Julep. Julep is a nail salon based in Seattle and their nail polish retails for $14 each.
The monthly box appears to include two nail polishes, coloring according to your "profile" and a beauty product. This box is more expensive, $19.99 a month. But the beauty product is full size, as well as the polishes.
Shipping is included and you get to preview your box each month and decide if you want it or not. You can skip, otherwise it charges to your card and is shipped on the 27th of the month.
This was my intro kit:
My profile came back as "Boho Glam". I was surprised by this assessment...but I really love the nail colors I received!
The polish I haven't ever used before, but I am very pleased with it! It is very creamy and was streak-free. It dried quickly also.
The Best Pedi Creme Ever! is really great.
I live in flip-flops during the summer, and I'm not much of a sock person in the winter...so needless to say my feet are dry and pretty nasty. I used this creme after filing the dry skin and in the morning my feet felt amazingly smooth. After three nights of using this after filing the dead skin my feet are looking great.
I am on the fence about keeping this subscription, but I did forget to mention I got this intro kit for ONE CENT! ONE PENNY!
If you are interested in receiving the intro polishes and Pedi Creme go to:
and sign up for the Julep Maven box and in the promo code box enter COLORS4ONE and you should see the total drop to ONE CENT. Just be sure to choose free shipping!
Then you can decide to keep the subscription or not.
I'm glad we can preview the box each month to decide to get it or not. So who knows...you might see some more posts about this.
But anyways, get this for ONE CENT! and then cancel if you want :)
