Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing each item included.

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Super Food

Essential Living Foods Superfoods Trail Mix – Value $7

This mix has the right amount of sweetness for me (I love that it includes cacao nibs), and I’m always happy to see it is organic too.

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Bracelet

Rosewood Mala Bracelet with Drawstring Bad – Value $25

This bracelet is a little larger than similar bracelets I have, so I won’t wear it out, but the card also recommends using it as a tool for meditation and reciting your mantra. (The value listed is from the info card).

GoodOnya Bar – Value $3

I really wanted to like this bar – but I couldn’t finish it. (I’m always on the lookout for healthy gluten and dairy free snacks, but this one just didn’t taste good to me).

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Exhale

Frisky Fish Roll On “Exhale” Essential Oil Perfume – Value $14

This might be my favorite discovery in the box. I love natural lavender scents, and this one is made with only pure essential oils.

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Journal

Essence of Nature Journal – Value $7.50

This notebook is made with recycled post-consumer products and agricultural waste – aka it is Tree Free!

Grey Sage Smudge Stick Bundle – Value $4

I wish they had packed this smudge stick a little better! About every item in the box arrived covered with little pieces of dried sage!

Yogi Surprise Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Crystal

Vanessa Valente Yoga Healing Quartz Crystal – Value $9? (Price listed on card)

This bag was open like this when the box arrived, and I can’t find the crystal anywhere in the pouch bag or in the box. (I know some readers mentioned their crystal was very small, so I’m thinking mine might have slipped out at some point).

Verdict: This box has a value of about $70 (counting the values listed by Yogi Surprise for items I can’t look for online). This isn’t my favorite box from Yogi Surprise, but I still like it. What do you think of the April 2015 Yogi Surprise box?

  1. I doubt the beads are rosewood. One, because the value of rosewood is so high right now that there is no way they could sell real rosewood for $25. And second, rosewood is now on an endangered species list with numerous trade restrictions. There are numerous reports that detail how the demand and trade in rosewood is decimating many of SE Asia’s remaining tropical forests. So for all these reasons, I’m thinking and hoping that it is not really rosewood.

  2. I enjoyed this box better than last months! I feel that it is getting more focused on the spiritual side of yoga, and I certainly appreciate that. What I don’t appreciate is superficial objects, such as last months rolling massage ball. In no way shape or form do I use that during or after my practice. I enjoy the essential oil tube from this month, the meditation beads, and the sage the most!

  3. This was my first box, and I’m pretty disappointed. I didn’t like the trail mix at all, and my power crystal was so small that it could probably only power a mouse. My essential oil roller had no label at all on it, so I wasn’t entirely sure what it even was. Sage all over everything…

    The info card also had numerous grammatical errors on it (sorry, I can’t help noticing those things since I’m an editor). Anyway, a pretty disappointing first go for me. I’ll give it one more month in case I got a bummer box this month.

    • Judy,

      Oh no! Were so sorry to hear your oil arrived without a label. Please email me at [email protected] with your address and we will send you a replacement along with some extras to make up for that.

      • Alana,

        Thanks for the kind offer, but it’s really not necessary. I was able to visit your website to figure out what the product is (after checking here and a bit of perplexed sniffing ;)). I appreciate the tips on your site about using it for natural insect repellent and stings/bites. Thank you for your follow up! You obviously go above and beyond for your (future) customers!

  4. Comment

  5. This is the weakest Yogi Surprise yet. And I thought it was really odd that April came and then the Spring box came like 2 days later. The juxtaposition was so clear. The Spring box is more like the Yogi Surprise I signed up for. As a result, I’ve cancelled and will purchase if and when there is another LE box.

  6. So far this is my least favorite yogi surprise but I am going to gift the bracelet and journal to friends that will enjoy them so that’s a win. I’ve really liked my past boxes so I’m hoping next month is better.

  7. This wasn’t my favorite box, but I still really liked it. My crystal was still in it’s bag, but I agree that it is laughably tiny, as others have said. The notebook I might swap because I don’t need it. With that said, I love the Frisky Fish Exhale oil! I looked it up and it’s good for your sinuses, which is really awesome considering it’s allergy season! I have tried it out and I it seems to help clear up my sinuses if it’s not too severely congested. I like the idea of the bracelet and sage, but I’m just not sure how to use them properly. I’ve never burned sage before, although it shouldn’t be too complicated. As far as the bracelet, I don’t know anything about mantras 🙁 I’ll try looking at the Yogi Surprise blog for more info, though.

    • Why did I get such a monster crystal compared to everyone else? I’m serious, it’s like 1.25 x 1 x .5 inches.

      Not complaining, it’s just odd that I got a really big crystal. (It’s not a perfect specimen, by any means. But it’s big.)

  8. If anyone wants to swap for their their Frisky Oil, let me know – I’m interested!

  9. If there was a crystal in my box, I didn’t see it. I searched and searched and came up empty-handed. I’ve also been very disappointed with shipping. Every month, I get a shipping notification email that says I will receive my box in 2-3 days, but every month, without fail, it takes eight days. Apparently, they print the labels (which triggers the email), but then they don’t actually take the boxes to the post office for another few days after that. It makes me sad.

  10. So glad I cancelled. Sad they didn’t put the sage in a bag first.

  11. This box doesn’t seem like it’s worth $70. None of the items seem bad, except the undersized crystal, but this box doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.

  12. I’m glad I cancelled last month. The beads aren’t really worth 25 dollars, I feel, my crystal bag came empty, the sage was a mess, I don’t need to be introduced to the concept of a journal, etc.

  13. The size of my crystal was laughable. There is no way it is worth $9 – it is a sliver of a thing! This is definitely my least favorite Yogi Surprise Box. I guess they all can’t be great!

  14. I like my box but the crystal was laughably tiny. It took me a while to find it and I laughed so hard. It’s a sliver. I don’t know why they even bothered!

  15. This was not one of my favorite boxes. I was going to cancel this box, but I forgot. I guess I will see what May’s box will be before I decide to cancel or not.

  16. My crystal came out of the bag, too. But my crystal was quite large compared to some of the others I’ve seen pictures of (half the size of a golf ball or thereabouts).

    I thought the bar was OK but not great. I won’t go looking for another one.

    I tend to fall asleep when I’m trying to meditate with a mantra. But then I have trouble falling asleep in bed at night. So I put the bracelet on and tried to meditate with a mantra in bed and it put me right out! I’m sure that was not the intent, but I’m happy with the result.

    I don’t think I like the perfume as perfume, but the eucalyptus smell is strong in mine so I rolled it on when I had a stuffy nose one night and it really helped. Kind of like all-natural Vicks Vap-o-Rub.

    • And Ragan, yes EXHALE is definitely our most therapeutic smelling blend, but it is excellent for clearing sinuses and congestion. Glad you were able to make use of it!
