This month's theme is "Solstice Celebration." Also, on the right is some info about their monthly giveaway: Every month, Yogi surprise sends one subscriber to a yoga retreat somewhere awesome!
This is the info card that was included, detailing the items in this month's package.
Yogi Surprise also includes a sequence card every month that suggests a yoga sequence to go along with the month and the theme. This sequence is all about strengthening your body in preparation for summer activities!
This month, Yogi Surprise included a coupon for 30% off Topricin, $1 off two Macrobars by GoMacro, and 20% off Kate's Magik.
Cuccio Somatology Yoga Essentials Kit - Value $12.95
This is a really neat kit! It has three different products in deluxe sample sizes - all designed to help enhance the yoga experience through heightened awareness of your body and environment. It includes a balancing oil, a balancing lotion for dry skin, and a yoga mat cleaner.
Califia Farms Vanilla Almond Milk - Value $2
I was excited about this almond milk until I saw that it has added sugar, and as the second ingredient no less. That pretty much wipes out the benefit of using almond milk for me, so this one is a miss.
Earth Friendly Products Parsley Plus All Surface Cleaner (sample) - Listed Value $2
Wow, I never thought of using parsley as a cleaner, but I'm definitely interested in trying it. It certainly works wonders cleaning the inside of the mouth and body! Plus I'm always looking for effective, non-toxic cleaners.
Topricin Homeopathic Pain Relief and Healing Cream (sample) - Listed Value $7
I'm not in any hurry to be in pain, but I will definitely try this when the time comes. Hopefully it's effective enough to allow regular yoga flexibility despite joint or muscle pain, but not so effective I overextend and make it worse!
GoMacro Protein Paradise Cashew Caramel Bar - Value $3.50
This little bar has an impressive list of credentials! It's vegan, organic, non-GMO, and is filled with protein and key minerals. Unfortunately for me, it also has loads of added sugar with 37g carbs and 10g sugar. That's 2.5 teaspoons full of sugar. I know some people don't care about this, but I've been watching my sugar like a hawk lately!
I have really sensitive skin, but the ingredients list on this mask looks great, so I'm going to give it a try. Summer heat, and it is super hot down here in Georgia, opens the pores wide, so I am curious to see if this mask will help!
The Better Chip Spinach & Kale - Value $3
Hooray! They included a snack without added sugar! I love that the green color actually comes from real spinach and kale, and not some powder or artificial color. These little chips got a great review in the Vegetarian Times, too!
Anima Mundi Apothecary Palo Santo Myst (Bad Vibe Killer) - Value $18
I love products with a clever name, and this one takes the cake! Bad Vibe Killer! Can you imagine if it really worked? I would have to buy it in 500 gallon drums and keep hoses full of it constantly aimed at some people. In reality, it is a natural antibacterial and antimicrobial, and has a soothing essence that can help restore a sense of peacefulness.
Kate's Magik Moon Goddess Anointing Oil (not pictured) - Value $14.95
Oops! I just realized that this little vial of oil rolled out of my picture! It was a 0.5 ounce oil in an amber glass bottle, if you can picture that. Sorry! In any case, this is a jasmine essential oil blend that smells great, obviously, and is invigorating.
Verdict: With the exception of the snacks, this month's Yogi Surprise was awesome! I know, the snacks may be awesome for some people, too, just not me personally at the moment. I will use everything else in the box, and my kids will devour the snacks I'm sure. This month's box has a total value of about $66, which is great for a $45 box.
