This month’s theme is “Time to Blossom.” The Spring Equinox is upon us and I couldn’t be happier! I like that the purpose of this month’s box is to replenish and get balanced in preparation for spring.
The back of the information card lists the box’s contents, a brief description, and values.
Every month, Yogi Surprise includes a sequence card that coincides with the theme. I enjoy yoga practices and like that I’ll have this tool at my fingertips in between classes.
Yogi Surprise has partnered with Trip Tribe to give one lucky subscriber every month a free yoga retreat! This card shows last month’s winner.
Rhythm Superfoods Broccoli Bites, 1.5 oz. – Value $4.49
This is the first item I pulled out of the box and it intrigued me! I couldn’t possibly like dried broccoli, right? Well, this gluten-free and non-GMO snack was surprisingly good. You definitely taste broccoli, but the garden ranch adds a nice savory flavor.
These clusters also contain sunflower seeds, cashews, and apple cider vinegar, along with herbs, and are packed with protein and fiber.
UliMana Coco Nectar Truffles, 1.5 oz. – Value $5.39
The second food item in this month’s Yogi Surprise is handcrafted in Asheville, NC, and is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and fair trade raw organic chocolate. I received 4 truffles that are each less than 1″ in diameter. They are sweetened with organic coconut nectar, which I learned is “one of the lowest glycemic index sweeteners.” I love the mission, but unfortunately, not the taste. The raw chocolate was a bit bitter for my liking but was manageable in small increments.
The texture of the truffle is smooth on the inside and a bit soft, despite the hard outer layer.
Andalou Naturals Coconut Firming Face Mask, 1.8 fl oz. – Value $14.99
The first beauty item I opened was this face mask. I put my weekly charcoal mask aside this week to try this out and was overall pleased. It is made from “coconut milk amino and essential fatty acids from certified organic and fair trade coconut” in addition to AquaCacteen, which comes from pear cactus.
The mask itself reminded me of a lightweight lotion, so I applied a thin layer and let it dry for about 20 minutes. It did not irritate my skin, nor did it tighten like other masks I use. Honestly, I almost forgot it was on because it’s also clear. I rinsed the mask off with cool water and although I think it will take a couple uses to see results, my face felt softer and more hydrated than after my usual night time skincare routine.
Jivana Ayurvedic & Yoga Body Butter, 4 fl oz. – Value $21
This body butter has a wonderful scent to it! Ingredients include cocoa butter, olive oil, avocado oil, shea butter, and a proprietary blend of essential oils. I’m not sure what I’m detecting, but it smells like shea butter blended with lemon. It’s lightweight, but definitely moisturizes and nourishes my skin.
This info and coupon card from Jivana was also included. I really like the education this company provides. They explain that Ayurveda (which is a science of life) believes “all organic and inorganic matter has unique intelligence.” It suggests looking at your skin as a reflection of what’s happening inside. I couldn’t agree more and this product and company is a nice reminder.
Soul Flower Boho Headband – Value $16
This month’s wearable item is this handmade headband. It is made of an eco-friendly knit, comprised of organic cotton and recycled plastic. It’s about 8″ wide and has a beautiful design screen printed on one side. I have been forever growing out my bangs and this fit comfortably on my head during the yoga sequence. It’s a pretty simple item, but knowing it’s handmade in the USA justifies the price tag for me.
Included was more information about Soul Flower and its eco-friendly clothing line.
Moon Valey Organics Muscle Rub, 1.7 oz. – Value $12.99
Lastly, I received this herbal muscle rub made with cayenne and arnica. It’s yellow and has a thick consistency and smells quite citrusy. It glides on clear, does not leave a residue, and feels slightly cool on my skin. This is great to have on-hand and I like that it helps to release stagnant energy, the source of some aches and pains.
April’s Yogi Surprise will include ToeSox and From Molly Sage Spray!
Verdict: This was my first month receiving Yogi Surprise and I am overall happy with the items included. There is a nice balance of practical beauty, food, and wearable items. The price points of each item are affordable and total about $75 this month. For $45 a month, that is a great value and it excites me to receive items that support small businesses while improving my health and overall well-being.
