Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing each item included.

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Bracelet

African Turquoise Bracelet – Retail Value $20

I like the colors of the beads in this bracelet. (I am starting to wonder if I need both a Yogi Surprise Lifestyle Box subscription and a Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box subscription).

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Almonds

SunBiotics Chocolate Almonds – Value $3.50

These are pretty good (but not eat-the-entire-bag-at-once good). I would recommend these if you are looking for a healthy chocolate fix that isn’t sweet.

Jem Raw Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Spread – 1 oz Value $3

This Cinnamon Almond spread is amazing! I ended up just eating the whole thing out of the jar (it’s a good thing they didn’t send a larger size), but I bet it would be great on apple slices too! (And now I want to try the Hazelnut Raw Cacao spread too!)

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Revive

Revive Balance Body Cloths – Value $3.79

These wipes can be used post workout on both you and your yoga mat! I like the mint scent – these will go to use!

Neelu Kaur Yogini Bliss Essential Oil Blend – Value $28

I almost always love the scents of products Yogi Surprise sends, but I’m not really feeling this one. In general rose isn’t one of my favorite scents, and that’s the predominant fragrance in this essential oil blend.

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Tattoos

my Tat Inspiring Tattoos – Value Price Listed $20

I wish Yogi Surprise hadn’t listed a retail price of $20 for these tattoos on the info card – it feels like an inflated value and is a little frustrating. (I think I would have preferred if these were just listed as a bonus item!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $58 (not counting the $20 tattoo value). This isn’t my favorite Yogi Surprise box because the highest price item wasn’t a hit for me, but otherwise I like all the other items. And I can’t wait to order more of that almond spread! I’m hoping the September box is a better fit for me.

What do you think of the August Yogi Surprise box?

  1. The past few boxes have not been a hit for me. One of my reasons for subscribing has been to try new things to see if I want to adopt the product long-term. While doing some of my own research on value, I discovered the etsy sellers from whom they’re being sourced. So, there are a lot of one-offs going on. I’ve been trying to justify continuing but just can’t. Wish them well.

  2. Just received my first of three boxes; a birthday gift from two of my children. I’m a yoga teacher, so I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of a gift such as this but… I’m a guy. I don’t know if you have a place to denote if the gift is going to a male or female but you might want to consider it and itemize accordingly. I will use what I can and re-gift the rest.
    Again, I appreciate my kids’ generosity; I know how hard they work for their money. So please, no more $20 tattoos!

  3. Pretty bracelet.

  4. The fragrance in mine spilled all over to the point the post office had to put it in a plastic bag. I cancelled my subscription because I’m tired of getting damaged items and the price of everything in the boxes seems inflated. I did get a mallet with my singing bowl and nothing was broken in that one. The bracelet in this months box was even big on me and I’m an athletically built 5’10” so my wrists aren’t small by any means. I’m thinking they would rather them be too big than too small that way, if people do restring them, they don’t end up with too few beads. I liked the Tigers eye bracelet that came in the last box because it was adjustable and actually well made.

  5. Re-stringing the bracelet to make it a little smaller is an excellent idea, as someone mentioned below- I think I’ll do that. I can still wear it in the meantime, it’s just a little loose, but I’m glad it will fit a range of sizes of people. And I love the stones! I love the fragrance of the essential oil, it’s one of my favorite I’ve received in a box. I do smell the Rose, but mine smells mostly like ylang-ylang.

    The tattoo price was definitely inflated, but overall I really liked this box!

  6. The bracelet is gorgeous. Did anyone else find it to big? The bracelets seem to be running large in their boxes, and this one seems to be larger then the others. I wish they would start putting elastic bracelets in their boxes that would also fit smaller wrists, instead of regular, larger wrists. – I find it interesting that they are putting jewelry in both boxes. – Yet still liking the yogi surprise box to maybe subscribe to another one since even though I get 1 box I’m always looking for more items out of the box to swap for.

    • This was not a great box for me. It felt more like the first box than the more recent boxes. I am tired of the bracelets they are all the same style just different stones. The tattoos while better than most are not worth $20 and tattoos in boxes have become a bit of a joke. I liked the scent but do think they need some different type items in their boxes. All the other items were trial size. Here’s hoping for a better September box.

      • I agree, – Ah, I still remember the first box over a year ago. – At least this one had no tea and some yummy items in it. The one box I missed out on which I should have gotten was the nepal box. – Thanks everyone for the bracelet ideas, if I dont end up swapping it for something I really want, I might end up restringing it and making a mala out of.

        • The Nepal Box had some problems. I got the singing bowl instead of the prayer wheel — which would have been fine with me — but the singing bowl was missing a mallet and couldn’t be used. I e-mailed them and they said there should have been a mallet and they gave me a $5 credit. Then I heard from other people that they also didn’t get their mallets and some of them got credits in different amounts (usually more than what I got). That irked me a little.

          • Thanks, I did not hear that. I decided to skip it because I thought there may have been repeats from other boxes in it which it did not have.

    • Is it possible you could use the bracelet as an anklet if it’s too big for your wrist? (Just trying to be helpful)

      • I’m thinking of unstringing mine and restringing it minus a few beads (I have lots of elastic I can use in there — you can buy it at Michael’s for under $5 and then just use a dot of glue to make sure it stays together when you tie it).

  7. Loving that bracelet! I want one so bad! Hope I see it in swaps!
