BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review – November 2015
BuddhiBox is a monthly subscription box for yogis. Every month, they will send you products to enhance your yoga practice and lifestyle. They only partner with businesses that follow ethical and conscious standards of production. Additionally, a portion of all boxes sold goes to benefit a nonprofit.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: BuddhiBox
The Cost: their standard box costs $30.95/monthly, $27.95/month with a 6-month subscription, and $25.95/month with a yearly subscription. Their ‘monthly samples’ box costs $11.95/month. (This review is of the standard box).
The Products: The standard BuddhiBox contains 4-6 full-size items to enhance yoga practice and lifestyle, and the ‘monthly samples’ box contains 2-3 product samples and coupons.
Ships to: US & Canada
One of three standard cards BuddhiBox sends each month is an inspirational quote. Of course November’s quote is about gratitude!
The reverse side of the card lists the items in each month’s package, along with retail values.
The second card is the monthly yoga pose, and this month it’s the scale pose. I seriously cannot do this pose. I wish I could! I have short-ish arms though. Maybe some day.
The third card has a vegan recipe. This month’s recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Cashew Cups and it looks delicious. I’m already hungry for Thanksgiving desserts. It’s my favorite part of the meal!
Mat Mist Spray – Value $12.50
It seems like yoga mat sprays and cleaners show up really frequently in subscription boxes, but I actually was in need of some more, so this works out perfectly. This spray is antimicrobial and does not require wiping. I like the scent too. According to my Bach Flower Remedies guide, geranium is a good scent for me, but I don’t really like the smell personally too much. I do like lavender and sandalwood, though, and this blend makes it much nicer to experience the geranium scent.
Vapur Reusable Water Pouch – Value $10
I have a couple of these bottles from Vapur already thanks to subscription boxes, and I think they’re great. Bottles are so bulky! These flatten right out when you’re done and you can put them in your purse or pocket with no added weight or volume.
Source for Muscles by Born Skin Care – Value $10
This is a natural sore muscle relief oil made of organic eucalyptus and muscadine oils. I haven’t tried it yet, but I hope it works! I really appreciate external, natural remedies for sore muscles.
Natural Perfume by Stinky Yogi – Value $30
I love the Stinky Yogi brand, primarily because of the funny name! This perfume smells good, though, and I like that it’s all natural.
This is a pretty interesting inclusion! It’s a gift card for a free download on speaklikeayogi.com. I don’t really have much interest in learning Sanskrit, but I think I will check it out anyway. This is just such a unique item! Unfortunately, my box was missing the wish bracelet. This is two months in a row that my box was missing something (from BuddhiBox)!
The Verdict: BuddhiBox’s customer service is always great and very responsive, so I know they will make the missing bracelet right. I just would prefer that they sent everything correctly in the first place. Otherwise, this was a good box with a value of $94.50, which is pretty amazing! This wasn’t my favorite box ever, but I will definitely use everything in it.
