Julep Maven July 2016 Review, SPF Expiration Issues

The July 2016 Julep Collection was called “Into the Sea”.  There was a new lip product, Lip Shade Sheer Lip Butter.  Julep is $24.99/month or $19.99/month with a 3 month subscription.  You can sign up with one of the great offers (at the end of this post) and get your first box free, just pay shipping.  Once you are a maven, you will be able to select the items in your box between the 20th and 24th of the month.

Everything shipped in a little brown box.


First Look.


There was a $10.00 coupon for a $20.00 purchase.  There was also booklet about the new products in July boxes.Lip Shade - Dahlia Sheer Lip Butter

Lip Shade – Dahlia Sheer Lip Butter This is the newest Julep lip product on the market.  There was a delay in delivering these this month, Once I received this, I (and many others) noticed the expiration date of 8/16 on the side of the tube.  These lip butters have and spf of 30, that expires the end of August.  The rest of the product is save, according to Julep.  I called Julep to find out what they are doing about it.  Julep is offering a replacement product or refund for anyone who contacts them, that received the lip butters.  I chose the refund and received 2000 Jules.

I love the actual product.  The product goes on sheer with a bit of color.  It's moisturizing and feels great on the lips.  I did select this in large part for the spf, so I was really disappointed that the spf expires so quickly.  This is something that really needs to go back to development.

What it Does:

  • Shea butter soothes and strengthens dry, chapped lips
  • Broccoli seed oil forms a protective layer that locks in moisture
  • Rosehip seed oil helps stimulate cell turnover and keeps lips smooth
  • Black currant seed oil nourishes and softens lips from the inside out
  • Available in nine sheer, flattering shades for a “your lips but better” look

Julep Lip Gloss - Delighted

Julep Lip Gloss – Delighted This is described as a Sheer Coral with Power Cell Complex.  Julep lip glosses are my favorite Julep products.  They have a sheet moisturizing formula that isn't sticky.  This is a pretty pink color with a slight glittery finish.


Mallory Classic with a Twist This creme finish polish is described to be a Pink lotus crème.  I love the color but the brush is a little off, so the polish applies a bit streaky.

These are swatches of the lip products: lip butter on top and lip gloss on the bottom.

Gummy Slice

There is always a bonus item in the box.  This month, there was a fruity gummy slice.  I gave this to my 7 year old.

Final Thought:  This ended up not being such a great box.  Over all, the lip butter is fabulous, but I really wish that spf would last.  I am going to find a better spf lip balm to use with it.  I need to get a new brush for my polish, which will be easy to do.  One thing I love about Julep is their customer service.  I always get a quick response to problems and never have to argue to get it made right.  For fast responses, I prefer calling Julep directly, rather than email.  If you want to subscribe, there are several great deals.  I have personally been subscribing since 2013, and I really love this subscription.
