Yuzen Subscription Box Review – Winter 2013 Box

Yuzen Subscription Box Review - Winter 2013 Box

Yuzen is one of my favorite subscriptions for women. Each quarter they send you a beautifully packaged box full of makeup, skincare and spa items that are all eco-friendly.

I tend to take a lot of unboxing photos when boxes are gorgeous!

Yuzen is one of those boxes where I know I will love the products in the box before I even see them because as soon as I open the box everything smells so clean and fresh!

Each box comes with a card detailing every item in the box and why Yuzen selected it. They also include coupon codes for many of the brands included for that quarter.

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream – .5 oz Value $9.40

Kerstin Florian Foot Balm – 1 oz Value $8

This Jurlique cream is the best hand cream I’ve ever used. It’s super hydrating and I love the natural rose scent.

TARA Spa Therapy Stress Relief Roll-On Remedy – 5 ml Value $3

Level Naturals Lavender Chamomile Soy Travel Candle – Value $6

So far, this is my favorite scent from Level Natural’s candle collection. (They also have their own subscription service – check out my review!)

SpaRitual Nail Polish Mini in Golden Rule – Value $6

Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust Shimmer Powder – FULL SIZE! Value $13.50

This gold dust is so glittery! I think I’ll only be using it for special occasions. I found the video on the item page helpful for application suggestions. Yuzen even suggests using it on your hair for extra shimmer!

Pino Facial Mask in Milk & Honey – Value $8

Sanitas Moisture Mist – 60 ml Value $6

Verdict: Once again, I love this quarter’s Yuzen Box! I paid $33 for this box and received over $60 worth of natural and organic products – the value is great! And all the samples are large enough so that I will be able to get lots of uses out of them. This box had the right mix of makeup, skincare and spa items for me. What did you think of the Winter Yuzen Box?

  1. Sounds great! However, how to I access the coupon at SpaFinder??

  2. Loved my Yuzen box, just got it today, yes they do ship in waves.
    Has anyone figured out how to get the stress relief roll on to work? Nothing is coming out, even after storing it upside down.

    • Just received my box and had same problem with the roller ball. I gently lifted the roller ball off the container. Using a qtip, I nudged the reverse side of roller ball. Put it back on and it now works. Was surprised that contents were very thick. Not my favorite scent but it is somewhat of a pick me up.

      • Lol just noticed the date on your post.

  3. I just want to comment on Level Naturals as a company. I bought a deal from giltcity few months ago and they only shipped one box instead of two. I contacted the company via email several times and received no responses. Then after contacting giltcity and emailing back and forth for a few weeks, I finally received my box.

  4. This is my second Yuzen box, and although it does look great, I wish it had some bath products to use this winter πŸ™ I am a winter bath junkie! I really could do without the gold powder and foot cream (this is my third in recent boxes) and gone for some nice bath salts or fizzies. I am a little bummed about that.

    • Im with ya Amy, and they usually do send some awesome bath stuff, one or two in each box. Hang in there!

  5. I haven’t even gotten a shipping notice for mine yet! This is only my 2nd one. Do they ship in waves?

  6. Really loved my box!

  7. I just got my first box, and I absolutely love it! It is easily becoming one of my top 3 boxes. I just wish it was monthly!

  8. I received my Yuzen Box late last week and what an awesome box!! It is my first box with them and just opening it with the lovely Yuzen paper and pretty tissue with the sheer bag is a zen experience! Love it! And the items inside: all curated to make you feel good, smell good, look good and sparkle. I loved getting this box!!! I’m a member for life!!!!!

  9. I just received my first Yuzen box last week. I really loved all the products and I thought the mint cups were absolutely delicious. The packaging is beautiful and I am using the pretty band that was wrapped around the tissue paper as a bookmark. Very happy with Yuzen.

  10. The mint cups are gross. My BF who eats just about anything did not finish the one he bit into. I loved the way the facial mask made my face feel, too bad I can’t afford to buy more. Maybe one day.
    I can’t decide if I like the hand cream or not. The scent is not my favorite but it does not linger and it does a good job moisturizing my dry hands.
    Overall I am enjoying my box. I think it is a great way for me to get products I could not otherwise afford.

  11. I just signed up! Thank you for reviewing Yuzen…I had no idea they existed!! Can’t wait to get my first box!

  12. I signed up for Yuzen when I saw your post about them opening up for new subscriptions. I hope my box is waiting for me when I get home tonight. I’m in dire need of some zen time =)
