Towards the beginning of August the “Julep Picnic Mystery Box” was announced, and like last months box there was a big and a small option. Due to the disappointment that was the big mystery box of last month I decided to go with the small of this month. Keep reading for the reveal, feel free to watch the video as well!
Here are the products that I received in the small Julep Picnic Mystery Box:
Sugar Smooch //
I don’t even remember what the advertised value of the box was supposed to be, to be honest. I do know that besides Evie everything in this box has been in a monthly box before now. I actually received Nan in my June box and Zora was in the Classic with a Twist for the month of May (the Sugar Smooch was also in the May boxes). Evie was the actual only new product. I would prefer if Julep went back to doing just a few mystery boxes a year and saved up a few new polishes to launch at those times with maybe one or two products being “leftover from the shelf” types of product. I don’t really feel that a mystery box every month is necessary and from the different groups I’m in people are actually seeming a bit miffed that Julep is doing this and they could start loosing sales on these all together, especially as people stay subscribed to the service longer and get more polishes in their collection.
So there you have my Julep Picnic Mystery Box and my thoughts on it as well. While I was disappointed in this box I’m of course going to keep subscribing to Julep because to me their monthly subscription is different than these mystery boxes. That being said I more than likely will not be getting another mystery box.
