Yuzen Beauty Subscription Box Review – Summer 2016
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. For each item, they also let you know why they picked it for the box.
ÉMINENCE Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer – .5 oz Value $10
This moisturizer has a wonderful natural scent. It’s made with succulents, and the formula is gentle and absorbs pretty quickly – a little goes a long way with this one!
PACIFICA Enlightened Gloss Nourishing Mineral Lip Shine in Beach Kiss – FULL SIZE! Value $12
This is my favorite type of lip gloss – lots of shine, a hint of shimmer and color, and NO stickiness! I love it! Here it is swatched:
ME! BATH Ice Cream Sandwich Pumice Stone – Value $8
This pumice stone has a pink side and a white side – the pink is for removing rough skin, and the white side is for buffing and softening skin.
SPA TECHNOLOGIES Marine Body Polish – 2 oz Value $6.90
I think I say this too often in Yuzen reviews, but this product smells wonderful! It’s a lotion that has “Natural Pumice and Algae granules buff your skin to a soft glow.” I’m not sure if this is designed to be used in or out of the shower, but I just tried it on my hands and then rinsed it off – with a super-smooth result!
SPA DE SOLEIL Olive Essence Organic Body Butter – 1 oz Value $3.25
I may end up buying this in full size once I finish this sample. It’s a rich creme without being too greasy, and even the scent is decadent!
JURLIQUE Purely Age-Defying Firming Eye Cream – 5 ml Value $16
The eye cream formula is almost a cream-gel hybrid. It’s very lightweight and didn’t irritate my skin, so I’m hoping to see some improvements to dark circles by the time this sample is empty!
ZENTS “Sun” Bath Truffle – Value $6
I was hoping this was chocolate, but a bath bomb is a good alternative! Here it is unwrapped:
SENCHA NATURALS Green Tea Mints – Value $3
This Mango Green Tea flavor is so unique and addicting! It’s not too sweet either.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $65. I think that’s great for a $33 all-natural beauty and spa box, plus I pretty much always love everything Yuzen sends. I think they do a great job at selecting products and brands that most subscribers will love
