Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – October 2014
Yogi Surprise is a monthly health and wellness subscription box that sends you natural goodies each month. Some items may be specifically for yoga, but in general this is more of a lifestyle box.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This is the first box of the subscription so I took a few more unboxing photos than usual. I am so impressed with their packaging!

This box came with a letter from the Yogi Surprise team.
On the flip side of the card are details for each product included.
Rooted Beauty Raspberry Citrus Facial Wipes – Value $6
I’ve sampled Root Beauty facial wipes before in a Pijon Box and I’m a fan, so these will got to use! And I love my candle scent! Judging by the card it looks like all subscribers got the Meditation scent, which is a mix of cedar wood and balsam.
Buddha Nose Awaken Yoga Mat Spray – 2 oz Value $5
PeopleTowels Organic Cotton Towel – Value $6
This Yoga Mat Spray is VERY minty! It’s a natural fresh scent, and I’ll start spraying my yoga mat with it! I’ve received a few of these organic cotton towels in subscription boxes before and they’re always useful too.
Teatulia Organic Tea Medley – Value $7.50
I know not everyone is a fan of getting tea in subscription boxes, but I drink tea all day long so this sampler made my day! And I love that it is organic!
Pitta Bar – Value $3.50
Emmy’s Dark Cacao Macaroons – Value $3
I couldn’t try this Pitta Bar because it is made with oats, but I did inhale these macaroons – love them!
Verdict: I’m a little torn with this box. When I first opened it I was thrilled because every item is perfect for me, but I had completely forgotten what I had paid for it, so in my head I was assuming it was a $20-$25 box. I would have definitely been disappointed if I had paid the full price of $45 for this box considering the value of the items is about $36. Since I used the coupon when I signed up, and it’s a lifetime coupon, I paid $36 for this box, and every future box will be $36. I’m guessing the coupon is just a promo tool and they are operating like everyone paid $36 not the $45 “cost” of the box. (I wish they just made the cost of the box $36).
So, I’m a little disappointed with the value, but I LOVE the curation. I will keep subscribing. And I’d be thrilled if the value next month was $45 or higher considering that’s the cost of the box!
