The theme for January is “new beginnings, good fortune, and endless blessings!” ZenBox by Jen sends a paper outlining the box items. I appreciate this information as it helps me know if anything is missing and how to find items I’d like to purchase again.

Yogi Tea Pure Green Tea – Value $0.31

Yogi Tea Relaxed Mind Tea – Value $0.31

Trying different Yogi Teas is one of my favorite things about this subscription. ZenBox by Jen sends a lot of Yogi teas and they are always good! Plus, I love the little sayings on the tea bag tag.

Rosewood & Chamomile Sugar Scrub – Value $6.00 (price from ZenBox by Jen)

This scrub smells delicious and although it is a very small size, I’m happy with the inclusion. I use scrubs all winter long to combat the dryness of winter. I’m glad this was wrapped well as it was pretty oily when I opened it up.

Dark Chocolate Mocha KIND Bar – Value $1.00

We typically have KIND bars in our house. My husband loves them and I’m satisfied with the ingredient list.

Laughing Buddha Statue – $5.00 (price from ZenBox by Jen)

I like little Buddhas but, we have at least 5 in my house so this one will be given away. He’s cute and very small though so it would go well in a little meditation garden or pot.

Turtle Totem Paper Weights – $5.00 (Price from ZenBox by Jen)

This is really cute and I do love that it’s handmade. The downside is that I don’t know what to do with it. My poor desk is messy enough! My daughter loves rocks and since it’s so cute, I think I will gift it to her. Then Buddha and turtle can be friends.

Verdict: On the ZenBox by Jen website, Jen writes about her personal struggles and how essential oils, teas, and regular meditation have helped her. I truly believe Jen is trying to help others and I appreciate that she is trying to help others bring self-care and calm into the lives of others. There is something about this box that when I open it, I smile. I can’t explain why I like it that much but I think it’s sweet and thoughtful. On the other hand, if you are looking for a bargain, this isn’t it. This box is consistently at or slightly above the subscription price. However, this month, the value of the items this month is at $17.62 (not including shipping), which is below the $25 (one time box) or $22.50 (monthly subscription) cost.

  1. Dang that’s a sad box. The turtle legitimacy looks like a pre-school art project. Is “Jen” a scam artist?

    • I would feel ripped off if I spent $5, let alone $25. Yikes

      • Ditto

    • I was wondering the same thing. Every month it is the same tea and only about $5.00 worth of nothing merchandise. To each his own, but who is falling for this?
