BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review – November 2014
BuddhiBox is a new, monthly subscription box for yogis. Every month, they will send you products to enhance your yoga practice and lifestyle. They only partner with businesses that follow ethical and conscious standards of production. Their subscription is also pretty customizable: when you sign up, they ask about the type of yoga you practice, your color and size preferences, and your birthday. Additionally, a portion of all boxes sold goes to benefit the One Love Movement, whose mission is to create a better future for at-risk youth and women populations.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: BuddhiBox
The Cost: their standard box costs $30.95/monthly, $27.95/month with a 6-month subscription, and $25.95/month with a yearly subscription. Their “monthly samples” box costs $11.95/month. (This review is of the standard box).
The Products: The standard BuddhiBox contains 4-6 full-size items to enhance yoga practice and lifestyle, and the “monthly samples” box contains 2-3 product samples and coupons.
Ships to: US & Canada
Every BuddhiBox comes with an informational card that details each item included in the box.
Yoga Digest Magazine – value: $5.99
Because this is their debut box, I’m not sure if every box comes with a magazine, or if was just a part of this one. Either way, I’m happy to have it! I love magazines.
Also included in the box was a recipe for raw mint chocolate bars, from RAW Etc.
On the opposite side of the recipe is a little information about RAW Etc.
BuddhiBox subscribers also got a $50 off coupon for the Northwest Yoga Conference in Seattle, WA on March 5-8, 2015!
Great Soles Yoga Socks – value: $13
I’m a fan of these socks – I’ve always had a problem with my hands and feet slipping just a bit when doing certain yoga poses. I always thought it was my mat, but I’m excited to see if these help fix the problem! These socks were featured in FabFitFun not too long ago, as well.
Coye Candle Co. Blood Orange Soy Travel Candle – 4 oz?, value: $10
Real Beauty for a Cause Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub – 4 oz?, value: $16?
This candle smells amazing! I love little candles with lids, and also prefer soy candles so this was a complete hit for me. Also, the fragrance comes straight from pure essential oils! (The reason I’m not 100% sure on the size is because there isn’t one on the label. Instead, I estimated the 4 oz based off of the info card’s value and the full-size value.)
This sugar scrub is listed on the info card as a $16 value but the full-size, 4-oz scrub on Real Beauty For a Cause’s website values it at $14.99. Since this container doesn’t list a weight on the label, either, I’m just going to list BuddhiBox’s value of it, with a grain of salt. That being said, this also smells incredible. I feel like the Lemon Coconut would definitely help me feel energized after using it! Mine came a little dried out, but I know I can always add a little bit of olive oil to help make it usable again.
Jo-Sha Essential Oil Wipes – 4 wipes, value: ~$2 total
I love these wipes. In the last couple years, my family has become very into essential oils, and all of these smell great. You can use them to clean your yoga mat, feel refreshed after a workout, or use them for your hands and feet.
Dye Ties Groovy Hair Tie Collection – value: $12
Raw Revolution Organic Bar in Cranberry Almond & Coconut – 1.6 oz, value: $2
“I Love RAW REVOLUTION” stickers bonus items)
These hair ties are really cute colors, plus they’re the kind that are designed to not leave creases in your hair. I don’t tend to use these too often, but I know they’ll be great to pass along to friends.
Verdict: All in all, I’m impressed with the first BuddhiBox! I like everything included (to me, you can never go wrong with a candle in a subscription box!), and am excited to use them. The value totals up to $55, not including the value of the $50 off coupon for the yoga conference. I’m definitely happy with that value! I also love that they give back to a charity, and that they have a preference questionnaire when you sign up.
