Registration And Membership
No Purchase Commitment
As a Julep Maven, you will be the first to receive new, never before released, colors and cutting edge treatment products that fit your look and need. Because we are adding new products all the time, you'll be sure to find lots of great items in every month's beauty editor Sneak Peek Box. Although the Julep Maven goal is to provide you with beauty editor treatment and style at an affordable price, there is no monthly commitment to be a member. You may skip the month or cancel your membership at any time.
As a Julep Maven, each month you will receive a personalized beauty editor Sneak Peek Box containing a selection of Julep products specifically customized to your Julep Maven Style Profile and the magazine beauty editor style you most resemble. Your customized selection in your Sneak Peek Box may change every month. Accordingly, Julep Maven cannot guarantee that a selection available in a particular month will be available in any subsequent month.
As a Registered user of Julep Maven, you agree to receive emails promoting any special offer(s), including third party offers. We may from time to time send you our monthly newsletter.
As a member of Julep Maven, you agree to receive emails, newsletters and other communications announcing your monthly Sneak Peek Box collection and promoting any special offer(s), including third party offers.
As a member, we will notify you of your upcoming beauty editor Sneak Peek Box on the 20th of the month by email. If you do not respond or change any information in My Account on julep.com, we will send you the exact products in your email notification. If for whatever reason, you are not happy with your selection you may try a new style and we will send you an alternate collection of handpicked customized products. To try another Maven style, simply login to My Account and select "Try a New Style". You have until the 24th of the month to notify us of your decision to request another selection of products. You also have the option to send your Sneak Peek Box as a gift to a girlfriend, sister, coworker, or anyone else free of charge. Login to My Account and select "Send My Box to a Girlfriend" by the 24th of the month and we will take care of the rest. Your selection will be sent according to our Shipping Policy to either your provided address or to one provided for a friend. Once you've purchased your first Sneak Peek Box, you automatically become a Julep Maven recurring member. In the case where you are still unsatisfied with the products you receive, please call: 1-877-651-3292 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take personal care of you. If at any time you wish not to receive the monthly editor’s box, it is the user’s responsibility to make this known by midnight on the 24th day of the month (5 days after the selection email will be received). In this case your credit card charge will be suspended until the following month when you will either choose to receive your Sneak Peek Box, gift it to a friend, or skip that month as well. Please also refer to our How It Works section for additional detail.
Referral and Point Program (“Earn On”)
As a Julep Maven, you have the opportunity to earn and redeem points (“Jules”) for actions predetermined by Julep. Such actions are subject to change at Julep’s discretion, and may be altered at any time without notice. Users must have an active credit card on file in order to earn and redeem Jules. Users will earn Jules for each referral that becomes a Julep Maven. Jules will not be allotted for the referral until the referee pays full price for their first Maven box. Jules may be redeemed for items that are predetermined by Julep. The user must have enough Jules to cover the full cost of an item. Julep reserves the right to allot or decrement Jules from a user’s account without warning. Once the user cancels their Maven subscription, they will no longer have access to any earned Jules, unless they reactivate their account.

VIP Bloggers may be granted written permission to reproduce Julep’s content in exception to our copyright policies contained herein, but all other Customers are subject to the “Copyright” section of these Terms. We reserve the right to disable personalized referral links if Copyright(s) have been infringed.

Paying By Credit Card
For your convenience, when you place your first order and become an official member, we will save your credit or debit card information and use it for all future shipments and charges which will automatically be charged to your saved card on the 27th of each month, unless you notify us. If your payment is unsuccessful on the 27th of the month, we will continue to attempt to process payment for your monthly box at our discretion. We accept the following credit cards at this time: American Express, VISA, and MasterCard. For your convenience and continuous membership benefits as a client, if your payment method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your credit card information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing that credit card on file including extending the expiration date until we are notified by you or the credit card company that the account is no longer valid.
