Here’s the info card for the box.
There’s also usually a yoga pose card inside the box. This month, it’s Dancing Shiva Pose!
This box also includes a “cocktail” recipe for a cleansing, detoxing juice. I wish I had a juicer! I might have to try this as a smoothie for now…
The magic ingredient in these packets is pure hemp extract, which helps aid chronic pain and general discomfort. Why? Well, because hemp, if you don’t know, is a type of cannabis plant. This product has a teensy fraction of the power of the full-blown stuff, but it’s just enough to ease muscles or even cramps (which I’m most excited about). This loose, serum-like product had a vaguely menthol-like aroma and felt velvety and a bit heavy on my skin. I can’t tell if it was just a placebo effect or not, but I do think it helped relax my super-tense neck muscles after a day of sitting at my desk!
Evelyn Iona Green Tea Primer Prep and Protect, 0.67 fl. oz – Retail Value $29.50
I love finding vegan, cruelty-free alternatives to beauty products I use every day. To me, great primers seem like such space-age miracle products that I never thought to see if there was a natural alternative to the mainstream stuff. This primer not only makes for a tidy, smooth surface to start my makeup application, but it’s also got green tea extract and avocado oil to give your skin a rejuvenating little kick. Nice!
Moondani Natural Breath Mint in Mystical Mint, 0.17 fl oz – Retail Value $12.99, Listed Value $9.00 (found on sale here for $8.50)
This little spritzer came in a recent Kloverbox, too! It’s a natural breath freshener that tastes a bit like the candied fennel you get when you leave an Indian restaurant. I like that it’s pocket-sized so that you can be discreet about spritzing it.
Sincerely Different Achy Muscle Rub, 0.5 oz. – Retail Value $10.00, Listed Value $14.00
There was a product from this brand in last month’s box, too! This salve has a really lovely minty, yet delightfully autumnal smell (I later found out on the brand’s site that it has sage and clove in it). I have a bit of jaw tension and pain now and then, so I popped a bit of this stuff on them. The salve left my skin feeling soft and the areas feeling gently cool for a short spell, but it wasn’t anything too lasting. Still, I like that this is a natural product!
Rose Quartz Heart – Listed Value $16.00
This seems like a pricey stone for something that sits comfortably in the center of my palm. Still, it’s super cute (who doesn’t love heart shapes?), and I love the light, liveliness of this pink stone.
Sat Nam Amazonite Mala Bead Bracelet – Listed Value $25.00
This bracelet has a good bit of stretch to it so that it fits comfortably on my wrist. The beads are a lovely color of cloudy turquoise blue. I appreciate that they’re real stones, too. Amazonite is supposed to help with open-mindedness, clarity, and self-love. The sky blue color definitely put me in a sunny disposition!
The Verdict: I liked this month’s BuddhiBox, though I’m a little underwhelmed to see a repeat brand (though the product is different) from last month to this month. My favorite products are usually the beauty and body care items, and that’s true for this box—that primer was lovely, and the samples of hemp oil ended up being really soothing. I did notice some differences between the listed values and the actual values for the products, but I’m guessing maybe they’re adding in the cost of shipping items in addition to just buying them?
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Order by the 8th of the month to receive that month’s box.
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $39.95 after shipping and based on my estimations, contains $97.49 worth of products. That means, proportionally, I spent approximately the following on each item:
- Hemp oil samples – $1.64
- Primer – $12.09
- Breath spray – $5.32
- Salve – $4.10
- Heart quartz – $6.56
- Bracelet – $10.24
