Special Delivery! A Guide to Online Beauty Box Clubs
For the Mani-Obsessed
Geared toward the certifiably nail-crazy, membership to this club from Seattle-based nail-and-beauty brand Julep offers you a constant stream of its high-end polishes in a variety of sophisticated and hip shades, as well as creams, scrubs, and tools, delivered as themed (and beautifully packaged) ensembles.
THE GOODS: Typically two new polishes, plus plum products like glycolic hand scrubs, crystal nail files, or hand moisturizers. The box is assembled based on the results of a style quiz, in which you click photos showing your preferences on quintessential lacquer, the most coveted celebrity hairstyle, a dream vacay, and more.
THE FINE PRINT: $20 per month, with free shipping to the U.S. and Canada. Each month you receive an email previewing the items in the upcoming box. If the offerings don't appeal, you have the option of sending it to a friend, selecting a new box, or skipping it altogether without being charged. To cancel your subscription completely, you must call 877-651-3292.
