Aside from the box taking forever to get to me (it shipped from Washington state, I'm in New York), I was really happy with it. I lucked out, I got a bunch of merchandise and I really like most of it! When I plucked it out of my mailbox, I instantly knew that I was getting more than a few nail polishes because it felt pretty heavy. Here's what was inside:
- Nail Lacquer in Amy - $14
- Nail Lacquer in Megan - $14
- Nail Lacquer in Alyson - $14
- Nail Lacquer in Sienna - $14
- Fast Dry Top Coat - $14
- Julep Basecoat - $14
- Julep Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum - $38
- The Best Pedi Creme Ever - $22
- Pomegranate Body Creme - $18
- Pomegranate Body Scrub - $18
So I paid $20 and received $180 worth of product. HOLY, mother. I didn't even realize the total retail value of this box until I added it all up just now! And I forgot to include the Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum in the photos here, but I promise I did actually get one. I'm kind of blown away by the prices of some of these items, though, because honestly I don't feel that the quality reflects the high price. The Pomegranate scrub and creme are nice, but they remind me of those off-brand ones you might find at the dollar store! In all seriousness, they smell extremely artificial and I definitely wouldn't buy them on my own. The Pedi Creme is interesting, but it's a small bottle and I wouldn't pay $22 for it. I haven't used the Nail serum enough yet to make any sort of comment on whether or not it works, but for $38 I hope it does some good!

Bottom Line: Would I buy any of these products individually? Probably not. Would I buy another Mystery Box for $20? Probably yes. I know not all boxes will be like this, but hey, it was fun to be surprised! Want one for yourself? Julep releases them every once in a while, visit their website and sign up for their email list to be updated (that's how I found out about this one).
Photos of the other products are after the cut.
