Yuzen Beauty Subscription Box Review – Spring 2015
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. (It’s one of those boxes that smells amazing even before you open it!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process postto learn more about how we review boxes).
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)
Nubian Heritage Honey & Black Seed 24 Hour All Natural Deodorant – FULL SIZE! Value $8
Co-Pur Hand Balm in Lavender Lime – FULL SIZE! Value $8
I’m always on the lookout for natural deodorants that are easy to apply, and I love that this one comes in a regular deodorant stick! I’m wearing it now and I like the scent – hopefully it works for 24 hours too!
This hand balm is like an oversized lipbalm, and the perfect size and container for keeping in my purse. I love the Lavender Lime scent, and the short ingredient list: Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and essential oils for scent. (Based on the info sheet, it looks like subscribers may receive one of three different scents. I might try to swap for the Sweet Citrus as well!)
Acure Organics Lip Lush in No Strings – FULL SIZE! Value $7
SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in Love is in the Air (Mini) – Value $6.50
Acure is one of my favorite natural/organic beauty brands. Their products work really well, and their price points are great too. This Lip Lush adds a lot of gloss and shine without any stickiness. (The color and shimmer are very subtle).
SpaRitual is a vegan nail polish brand, and I love their mini bottles. (I don’t think I’ve ever finished a full-size nail polish bottle, so minis are fine by me!) I like this cotton-candy pink shade too.
Chocolove Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate Bar – Value $4.50
Innersense Pure Harmony Shampoo + Daily Conditioner – Samples Value $2?
My husband’s favorite sweet treat is toffee, and he couldn’t stop raving about this chocolate bar!
These Innersense samples don’t have sizes on the labels, so I’m estimating the value. If the products are even half as good as their scents I’ll be buying the full-size versions asap!
Spa Technologies Micro Pearl Dermabrasion – .25 oz Value $5.30
Yurrku Utopia Night Cream – 10 ml Value $16
This Micro Pearl Dermabrasion should last me at least 2-3 uses, and should be enough to see if I want to buy the full-size version. I’m excited about this Utopia Night Cream as well – it’s a nice lightweight cream and absorbs quickly. I like the scent too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $58. I think the value is great considering I will use every single item. This is one of those boxes that makes me feel like it was made for me! What do you think of the Spring 2015 Yuzen Box?
