Julep May 2012 Cinco de Mayo Mystery Box

Delivery packaging:
My Julep Cinco de Mayo Mystery Box has arrived! The delivery box that it arrives in is a bit different than the usual ones. Whereas the monthly Julep Maven boxes and the Julep April 2012 Spring Mystery Box are normally delivered in a square black Julep cardboard box with Julep printed in white, this box comes reversed in a white rectangular box with black Julep printed on the side.

The mystery products are hidden in a bright yellow paper bag, where it's nestled in orange crinkled paper strips. The colours used for this Cinco de Mayo box are quite bright and festive. Love it!

Items inside the box:
  1. Julep Packaging Invoice: itemizes what's being delivered
  2. Julep Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub (full size 89ml / 3 fl. oz. retail: $32.00) - 30ml / 1 fl. oz. SAMPLE
  3. Julep Crystal Nail File (retail: $6.00) - *FULL SIZE*
  4. Julep Nail Vernis Sienna (full size 8ml / .27 fl. oz. retail: $14.00) - *FULL SIZE*

My impressions:
These Julep Mystery Boxes are AWESOME! I really LOVE the suspense that they offer. In each mystery box, it contains $60 - $200 worth of Julep's best sellers, what's not to love? Whereas these mystery boxes sell for $60, Julep normally provides promo codes so that you could receive the mystery boxes for $19.99. Though you had better act fast since quantities are limited and sells out fast! For the May 2012 Julep Mystery Box, it was in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. The promo code used to obtain it for $19.99 was CINCO. As luck would have it, I didn't receive any of the special big boxes. No big deal though since all of the mystery boxes are great!

The Julep Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub included in the box is nice, though the full size version of it had been included in my Julep March 2012 box already. It's a great product though, so there's always room for more. What I am really excited about is the Julep Crystal Nail File that was included in this box. I haven't tried one before and the Julep one has gotten such rave reviews. It definitely does have quality feel to it and it is just SO PRETTY! The colours that I received are lovely and different. My favourite nail colour included in this box was Sienna and unfortunately for me, it's the only one with a wonky-ish brush. It was pouffier than the others and had a few curled strands. Luckily, I had to write to Julep in regards to my wonky, messed up Kylie nail polish brush from the Julep May 2012 box, so I mentioned this brush as well when requesting for replacement brushes, which Julep is great for. Leah, Hayden and Gayle are such fresh and springy colours. Makes me happy just looking at them! Like I said, I totally LOVE these Julep mystery boxes =D
