Beauty subscription boxes are slowly but surely becoming all the rage. Who wouldn’t want the latest and greatest beauty products mailed right to your door? With all the subscription boxes out there, it’s hard to choose one. Today I’m featuring two beauty boxes that I both think are great buys, depending on what you’re looking for. So, in the blue corner, created by Jane Park is the Julep Maven Beauty Box! In the red corner, created by Lisa Sugar, is the POPSUGAR Must Have Box!
For me, my budget is the biggest piece in my decision to buy clothing and beauty items.The Julep Maven program offers a monthly subscription of $19.99, 3 months for $60, 6 months for $120, and one year for $240. You also get free shipping and 20% off the entire Julep website for the duration of your subscription. The POPSUGAR box offers a monthly subscription of $39.95, 3 months for $110, 6 months for $215, and one year for $430. Overall, the Maven program is better for a budget babe, whereas the POPSUGAR box is better for a splurge-y kind of girl!
The content of the Julep Maven box is full of nail colors and innovative beauty products all set to a specific monthly theme. When beginning your Maven subscription, you take a “Style Profile” quiz to decide what kind of box you receive each month. The five types you could receive are:
1) Classic with a Twist- Receives 2 unique nail colors and one full-sized beauty product
2) Boho Glam- Receives 2 unique nail colors and one full-sized beauty product
3) Modern Beauty- Receives 2 full-sized beauty beauty products
4) Bombshell- Receives 2 unique nail colors and one full-sized beauty product
5) It Girl- Receives 3 unique nail colors
The POPSUGAR box is more widespread in its offerings. The box usually features a full-sized fashion, beauty, home, fitness, or even food products that have been hand-picked by the editors each month. However, everyone receives the same box each month.
Now if you’re going to pay for these magnificent boxes, you want to be rewarded for it, no? Thought so. Now the Julep Maven Reward’s Program runs through a points system called Earn On. You earn points, called Jules, for doing certain things in the Maven program. For example, for each box you pre-pay for, you receive 300 Jules. You also receive 1,000 Jules fro referring a friend to the Maven program! You can use the points to buy items around the site such as add-ons for your box, single beauty products, or even a free month of Julep Maven! See the full rewards conditions here.
The POPSUGAR rewards program is much less complex. It’s a simple referral system. Refer two friends, get a free month. Refer 5 friends, get three months free. If you refer ten, you get six months. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Both boxes are amazing are absolutely amazing (I’ve tested!), but it all comes down to your budget and personal style. So who do you choose? Let me know below!
