Yuzen Beauty Subscription Box Review – Summer 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 post to 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.
Hugo Naturals Shower Gel in Vanilla & Sweet Orange – 2 oz Value $3
I’ve tried Hugo Naturals lotion before (I believe thanks to Yuzen), and I like this brand! The Vanilla and Sweet Orange scent is subtle, and this formula is gluten free and vegan too!
Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen in Fair – .25 oz Value $6.60
This Suntegrity product is sunscreen/BB cream hybrid. It’s tinted but goes on sheer, and leaves a slight sheen/glow to my skin. I’ve received this sample in darker shades which are a better fit for my skin tone, but fortunately even this fair color blends in to almost be invisible.
I sampled this lip balm thanks to the April Beauty Box 5, and I really like the formula – I’m happy to have another one!
SpaRitual Nail Lacquer Mini in Strike a Pose – Value $6.50
I believe Yuzen has sent a few SpaRitual nail polish minis out in the past few years – and I love them! (There’s something about mini nail polishes and mini perfume bottles that just makes me want to collect them all). The SpaRitual formula is great too.
Aromafloria Aromatherapy Muscle Soak Ocean Mineral Bath Salts – 4.5 oz value $3
This muscle soak is made with natural and organic ingredients. I can’t really detect the lemongrass scent, but the eucalyptus and peppermint scents are strong!
These candies are so good! And they are also made with organic ingredients, and colored with red cabbage, purple carrots, and other fruits and veggies!
Shea Moisture Zanzibar Marine Complex Replenish & Rejuvenate Hand Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $6
I love the Shea Moisture brand since it is organic and affordable. (And you can get it at Target!) This hand cream is very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way so this tube should last me months.
Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Firming and Tightening Serum – .16 oz Value $10.40
I’ve tried a few Jurlique serums thanks to subscriptions, but I think this one is new to me. In general my experience with Jurlique serums is that they are gentle and provide a good base for my moisturizers, but I’ve never noticed significant differences in my skin appearance.
Aromaflage Botanical Fragrance & Insect Repellent in Wild – 1.5 ml Value $6
This is a perfume and natural insect repellent in one! I’ve tried their original scent before, and I like the Wild scent too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $52.50. That’s a little lower than some of their previous boxes, but I think it’s still a pretty good value for a $33 box. Plus I really appreciate the curation of this box (I usually end up using every single item), so that’s a factor in value for me too.
What do you think of the Summer Yuzen box?
