Yuzen Summer 2014 Subscription Box Review

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.

I’ve been subscribing for over a year now, but this quarter, Yuzen offered to send me this box at no cost for review purposes.

Yuzen Summer 2014 Subscription Box Review Card

Each box comes with a fold out card that details the items and brands featured. On each item they also let you know why they chose it for the box. (As far as card info goes in subscriptions boxes – I think this is one of the best).

Yuzen Summer 2014 Subscription Box Review Soap

Hugo Naturals Handcrafted Soap in Vanilla & Sweet Orange – Value $4

Sencha Naturals Pink Dragonfruit Mints – Value $3

3 of these mints have the equivalent of 1 cup of green tea’s antioxidants! I like the flavor a lot, but they were a little too sweet for me.


Kerstin Florian Lavender Body Spray – 1 oz Value $12

Aromaflage Botanical Fragrance & Insect Repellent – Sample Vial Value $4

I’m a little obsessed with both of these products. This body spray is actually a very light moisturizer and it has such a lovely natural lavender scent. (If you love lavender like I do I think you will love this product!)

I also seem to get more bug bites than the typical person during the summer, so I really hope this perfume/insect repellent works. I like the scent, so I just hope the bugs don’t! (They also are making outdoor candles with the same scent for the summer – I think I’m going to use the Yuzen coupon code to buy one!)

Yuzen Summer 2014 Subscription Box Review Lash

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Ultimate Lask and Brow Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $62.50

I didn’t think this was full-size until I looked it up! It’s probably the most natural eye lash enhancer on the market, and it gets good reviews, so I’m going to try it since I have the full size version. Hopefully I’ll see results in a few weeks!

Yuzen Summer 2014 Subscription Box Review Toner

Kneipp Balancing Lavender Herbal Bath – .67 oz Value $5.50

Shamanuti Seaweed Toner – 1 oz Value $10

I like Shamanuti’s charcoal cleanser, so now I can follow it up with this toner!

Verdict: The summer Yuzen box has a value of about $100 – amazing! Also, I think I will end up using every single product, so that makes it even better! What did you think of the Summer Yuzen box? What’s your favorite product so far?

  1. I like the toner & soap from this box the best 🙂

  2. the only box so far that never dissapointed me. I had to cancel so many subscriptions that seemed promising at first and got just too bad after, and yuzen has never even once put me down! this is the best choice and value for what you pay. I loved this box and going to use all of the items, except mints may be (not a fan of mints). The packaging is way too cute, owners are doing a great job!

  3. It is such a wonderful sensory experience to open a Yuzen box! Plus, I know that the quality is always exceptional. I was a bit disappointed that the eyelash serum was roughly 2/3 the value of the box. I don’t happen to need that one, so would have preferred a sample. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find someone who will be delighted to receive it! Despite that, I still got my money’s worth and intend to continue my subscription.

  4. I agree with all of you who say that Yuzen is a great box. Liz, your site has led me to many subscription boxes (thanks for all of the great coupon codes!), and I think that my favorite that I learned about from you so far is Yuzen. Just quality products, great customer service, shipping, packaging, etc. Definitely worth the money!

    I was already subscribing to Birchbox and I do love it, and I was also already subscribing to New Beauty Test Tube, and they are still some of m favorites.

  5. I work on a lavender farm/distillery where we make our own products & I still can’t get enough! I love it!

  6. I used the bug spray last weekend. Not only does it work wonderfully, but it smells amazing! I am definately going to buy a full size!!!

    • Yay – I’m so happy to hear it works! I think I will need to buy the full size version too 🙂

    • I did not get this box, think I got the last box. I was wondering about the bug spray in this box….WOW! a good smelling natural bug spray! Perfect! I’m going to look for the full size online. Thank you for suggesting it.

  7. yuzen is my absolute favorite box, and i get a lot of good boxes. i consistently love every single thing in their boxes. i didn’t realize the lash serum was so expensive. i’ve been using it so i hope it works! and i’ve already eaten all of the mints like candy.

  8. I purchased a single box for myself as a gift, I thought it was the summer box. Yet I think it turned out to be the Spring box with the foot cream. Which I liked a lot better than this box. I don’t like the smell of lavender. Yuzen is one of my favorites, I’m going to wait till next box comes out and get that one.

  9. I didn’t realize the lash and brow serum was so expensive! I keep forgetting to use it at night, though. (Got my box 4 or 5 days ago.)

    I like the mints. But I have a serious sweet tooth. Actually, they’re in my purse right now and just typing this has made me kind of want a few.

    Haven’t tried the other items yet but I like (or expect to like) all of them. Yuzen is consistently one of my favorite boxes. But I usually can’t afford to buy the stuff in it a second time. Oh well, at least I get to sample some high-end items!
