Yuzen Beauty Subscription Box Review – August 2014
Yuzen is one of the original eco subscription boxes. It’s a mix of spa, beauty and the occasional food item, and everything is made with natural ingredients.
Yuzen kindly sent me this box for review purposes.
Yuzen also has the best packaging – it’s like unwrapping a gift!
The Subscription Box: Yuzen
The Cost: $33 a quarter
The Products: Eco-friendly products to nourish the body and soul.
Ships to: US only.
Each box comes with a fold out card that details the items and brands featured. On each item they also let you know why they chose it for the box. (As far as card info goes in subscriptions boxes – I think this is one of the best).
SpaRitual Cuti-Cocktail Pen & Pusher – FULL SIZE! Value $17
Whet Nail Lacquer in Hubris – 10 ml Value $9
I just tried this cuticle pen and I love it. (FYI – it’s one of those applicators like the Stila Lip Glazes – AKA it seems like you can wind it up forever until it finally dispenses the cuticle oil, and then you realize you’ve wound it way too much!)
Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion – FULL SIZE! Value $12
Eminence Organic Skincare Wild Plum Eye Cream – 10 ml Value $20
Dr. Hauschka Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence – 10 ml Value $3
I really like Weleda lotions – they absorb quickly and they are very lightweight. I wasn’t sure if I’d like the pomegranate scent, but it’s very subtle.
I’m also very excited about this eye cream – it’s a third of the size of the full size version, so it should be enough for me to see how it works with my skin.
Annie’s Organic Fruit Snacks Berry Patch – Value $1
Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream – 10 ml Value $8
I love Annie’s Organic fruit snacks! These were devoured immediately after taking this picture! This Tatcha hand cream is lovely too! And its actually indigo colored!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70 – more than double the $33 cost! I think the value is great, the sizes of the items are all good, and I’ll use every single item! What do you think of the latest Yuzen box?
