Each box comes with a card detailing each item included.


Philosophie Vegan Protein & Superfood Powder in Berry Bliss – 2 oz Value $7.50

(Subscribers will receive one of multiple varieties). This might be the perfect protein mix for me! It’s gluten and dairy free, and I love that it has a naturally low sugar content. (No natural or artificial sweeteners). I’ll use this for smoothies, and I want to try their Cocoa Magic and Green Dream powders too!


Big Dipper Wax Works Citronella Tea Lights – Value $8

I love the Big Dipper Wax Works company! These candles are a blend of beeswax and soy wax, and they are very scented – I could smell the Citronella before I even opened the Yogi Surprise box!


Molly Muriel Down To Earth Soap – Value $6

(Subscribers will receive one of multiple varieties). This soap is made with all natural ingredients and smells great. I think I may buy a few more of their natural soap varieties, and this cinnamon clove candle!


Urban Moonshine Herbal Apothecary Joy Tonic – Value $10

The Organic Joy Tonic “is a blend of aromatic herbs that are traditionally used to support the nervous system, restore a positive mental attitude, promote a relaxed feeling when overwhelmed or overworked, and relieve occasional sleeplessness.”

I like the promises this tonic makes – but not the taste! Sadly this item isn’t for me.

All Good Coconut Sunstick (SPF 30) – Value $8

This SPF Stick formula goes on clear, and it has a sweet coconut scent! I would have preferred this item in a summer month box, but really no complaints.


Caveman Cookies in Alpine – Value $2 total

(Subscribers will receive one of multiple varieties). I used these to get the taste of the tonic out of my mouth! I love Caveman Cookies. They are gluten and dairy free, and definitely sweet enough to be a dessert treat. This alpine flavor is made with hazelnut meal and ground carob.


Gaiam Mat Sling – Value $10

I love when Yogi Surprise includes actual yoga items! This is a useful one too.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $51.50. I think this is one of my favorite Yogi Surprise boxes – I’ll use every item with the exception of the tonic spray, and I discovered so many great new brands this month!

What do you think of the September Yogi Surprise box?

  1. I was not happy with this box. The citronella candles and sunscreen????…seems like the company purchased end-of-summer clearance items and called it a day.

    Not worth the $$ this month.

  2. Tip from the Urban Moonshine website — “The Certified Organic Joy Tonic is very pleasant when taken in a little sparkling water. This helps to volatilize the aromatics in the blend, and dilute the taste of the alcohol.”

    Not sure if that will help, but maybe worth a try!

  3. Didn’t love this box. Wish they would think of something new to send. Mouth spray, mat spray, roll ons, bracelets, tea, face masks and malas have all been done to death. Would like something different like maybe rice, spices, full size candle, body oil, meditation cd.

  4. I thought this box was OK, but better suited to summer than the beginning of fall.

    I got the chocolate protein powder and it was good. It is all gone now.

    I may use the candles to keep 6- and 8-legged “visitors” out of the basement (we have a door that doesn’t seal well).

    I have 5 yoga mats so I am sure I can use the sling with one of them!

    I got the Rainforest Caveman Cookies. I think this is the first time I have had Caveman Cookies. Since I can have dairy and wheat and do not eat Paleo, these were not my favorite things ever…

    My soap was Rose Geranium. I am sure I will use it eventually but I am drowning in soap from Clean Bar Box, currently. It does smell good.

    I have not tried the spray yet. I always forget to use these things. I have finally trained myself to use yoga mat sprays so I am making a dent in my stash of those. But I am not quite there yet with mouth sprays (which remind me of using Chloraseptic…). We will see on this one.

    Sunscreen stick: I wear sunscreen every day so this will get used.

    Not (for me) the most exciting box from Yogi Surprise, but solid and certainly not enough to make me think of quitting.
