Yuzen Beauty Subscription Box Review – Fall 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.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Yuzen has the best packaging, too.
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.
I love that this sheet mask is fragranced with only essential oils! The Jasmine and Peppermint combination was very refreshing, and the mask was gentle and hydrating on my skin too. (This sheet mask took 15-20 minutes.)
Aromafloria Feet’s Sake Spa Foot Scrub – 2 oz Value $4.30
Another refreshing and minty item! This sugar scrub was an excellent exfoliator and perfect for ankles/tops of feet before applying self tanner!
Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap – Value $5
This soap has a sweet, tropical scent, and the vanilla beans make it great for gentle exfoliating, too:
pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge – Value $8.50
I love these konjac sponges! They are so gentle but still always leave my skin feeling super clean and smooth.
If you aren’t familiar with konjac sponges, you wet it before using, and you can use it with or without a cleanser. When you’re done, squeeze to remove excess water and then let it hang dry.
This is a hydrating gel made with aloe vera. My experience with aloe vera from sunburns is that it takes a long time to dry, but this formula was really light and absorbed almost immediately. It’s also something you can use every day – not just for sunburns.
Refreshing skincare items seems to be a theme for this box!
Moondani Natural Breath Mist – Value $11.99
Breath spray that looks like the fanciest travel perfume! This is an unsweetened, natural breath spray, so it gets the job done and doesn’t add any extra sugar!
But don’t worry, there is sugar, too:
Go Organic Hard Candies – Value $1
These are vegan and gluten-free. (Delicious, too!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $81. I think that’s great for a $33 all-natural beauty and spa box, plus I pretty much always love everything Yuzen sends.
