Each box comes with a card detailing each item included.


AuraCacia Organic Motivating Yoga Mist in Sweet Orange & Peppermint – Value $10

I love all things citrus, so this spray is perfect for me. (I’m used to Yoga Mat sprays being minty, so the sweet orange is a nice change!) I’m going to use this as a room freshener – I already have too many yoga mat sprays!


Adjustable Tiger’s Eye Bracelet with Charm – Value $54

(Since this isn’t a branded item I can look up online, the value listed is from the info card). This piece is really well made, and I like the adjustable part. It’s still a little loose on me adjusted to the tightest setting, but it still works!


Acure Cell Stimulating Mask – Value $12.99

I love the Acure brand! If you are looking to avoid any type of ingredient or allergen, I highly recommend checking Acure out. Their products work great, and they aren’t too pricey either. I’m excited to try this mask. I like the instructions from Acure’s website:

Apply evenly over the face until you look like a green sea-monster. Allow to set for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly to a refreshed and renewed you!


Gaiam Dual-Grip Headband – Value $7

I love headbands with grip linings, but this one is a little too tight for my head. I love the two-tone colors too! 🙁


Zhena’s Gypsy Tea Green Coconut Chai – Value $7

This tea blend smells so good! It’s a mix of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, orange peel, nutmeg, black pepper, plus natural coconut and cinnamon flavor.

Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $91. That may be slightly inflated with the retail price of the bracelet, but I still think the value is good. I’ll also use everything (besides giving my mom the headband), so I’m very happy with the curation this month. (I have to admit though – I look forward to my Yogi Surprise snacks/sweets, so I was a little bummed not to see a food item in this box!)

What do you think of the July Yogi Surprise box?

  1. Agreed Nana. As a craft/ jewelry maker it’s a pet peeve of mine when people over inflate. I don’t mind paying more if there’s Craftsmanship or fair trade involved like metals or intricate beading but when someone puts a few dollars worth of beads on a string and charges 5 times the cost I think it’s a deceptive practice. People are free to charge whatever they wish of course but it’s important to educate yourself as a consumer.

  2. When a piece of jewelry is unbranded, I think the best place to look to find the value is AliExpress. If you click on my name you can see one very similar to the one here that sells for a little over $7 Add to that $1 for the Buddah charm.

  3. I’ve found similar bracelets here:
    The beads are heavy and genuine and really is a niche type of jewelry I would pay for touring at the beach or some place exotic. So as I don’t think it SHOULD be the same RV as getting it somewhere special like a mom and pop shop on the coast, I don’t think it’s wrong to list it for that value as it’s not like you are paying RV for this box.

  4. This was my first month’s box, and I have to say I love it. There isn’t an item in the box I won’t use. The tea looks amazing. I love the smell of the room/body/mat spray. On the bracelet, I don’t think that the price is that inflated. For one thing, the stones are genuine. They are large, and they are heavy. I’ve seen mala bracelets around the same price or more on etsy. I had planned on only ordering this box once to see what it is like, but I extended my membership – as I signed up for 10 boxes in the last month, and so far this is the only one where I will use every single item and feel it’s worth the price.

  5. They needed to proofread their info cards this month — mine said my headband was “in violent.” I am really hoping they meant “in violet.” There was a typo on the jewelry card, too, but I lost track of it among my moving boxes and I don’t remember what it was.

    Ah, well, inflated values aside, this box is a really good fit for me!

  6. Response to the comment about the value. I make bracelets with gemstones and different stones and the value of those beads and charm is about $5 on ebay so the value is crazy over inflated even if you count in the labour which would probably be 30 min even for a first timer 🙂 if you really like them check out pinterest as they have tons of ideas and visit your local bead shop or try a supplier online which is way cheaper.

  7. Is it possible to take beads off of the bracelet to make it smaller? Can’t really tell from the picture…

  8. I got the exact same items – the bracelet is gorgeous, yet seems to fit an average sized – to larger size wrist best. I wish it would have adjusted smaller, not bigger. I like yoga mat sprays I use them everywhere. I have one in every room and one in my purse. – The values of all the jewelry pieces seem way overinflated to me. $35 maybe $40, yet $49 just seems way to high. I guess the values would be based on going to small high end shop in a ritzy area? Thats the only thing I could think of when I saw the listed value being $49

    • All the jewelery subscriptions assign values to their pieces that are many times over the real ones. The worst of all is Cate & Chole which give the Mary “Mother” necklace a value of over $100, when you can buy the *exact same necklace* at AliExpress for under $3. (I know, because I did and compared them)
