BuddhiBox Yoga October 2018 Box Review

BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Information Card FrontBuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Information Card Back Side

Each BuddhiBox contains a small card with product information and listed cost of each item. On the opposite side is a quote which ties the products together. This month’s mantra is “Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow.”

BuddhiBox always includes a card with a mantra or yoga pose on it to help your practice evolve. This month is all about the reclined spinal twist. This is a favorite relaxation pose of mine to do at the end of the day to help my posture and relax me before I go to sleep. Some of the benefits of this pose are that the twist stimulates your internal organs and aids in digestions as well as works to stretch your back muscles and glutes.

All the contents come in an 8.5″x11″ linen cinch bag. Perfect for stashing your new goodies! I love the reminder stamped on this month’s bag: “Stay Patient. Trust the Journey.”

BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Love & Lotus Peace of Mind Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub Set In PouchBuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Love & Lotus Peace of Mind Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub SetBuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Love & Lotus Peace of Mind Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub Set Uncapped

Love & Lotus Peace of Mind Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub Set – Retail Value $5.00, Listed Value $10.00

This minty scented lip set is made from all natural ingredients. The scrub is sugar based, and the lip butter is mango butter and coconut oil based – and this company also is cruelty-free. I’m a big fan of doing lip scrubs in the shower while I’m shaving, and I think this one did the trick of leaving my lips soft and smooth. I slathered the butter on after and was happy with the smell and texture. These are solid products, that give expected results, at a really reasonable price point. The packaging does feel a bit “made in someone’s kitchen” but again, for a low price point item, it more than suffices.

BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Ziva Soul Co. Hibiscus Clay Mask Bottle 1BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Ziva Soul Co. Hibiscus Clay Mask Bottle 1

Ziva Soul Co. Hibiscus Clay Mask (2 oz) – Retail Value $9.00, Listed Value $15.00

This gentle clay mask is simple to apply. You simply mix it with a little water so that it becomes the consistency that you want, you apply it to your skin and you wait until it dries and then rinse it off. Hibiscus is supposed to naturally fade age spots and remove dead skin. While I don’t have spots just yet, I can say that this mask didn’t irritate my skin at all, I liked the texture (I quite like the way clay masks feel on my skin as they dry), and my skin looked smooth and fresh when I rinsed it off. You’ll get quite a few uses out of this bottle as well! I also think it’s fun that this is another handmade natural product.

BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review October 2018 - Real Beauty for a Cause Toner Tab Top

Real Beauty For A Cause Toner Tab – Estimated Value $3.99, Listed Value $4.00

OK – so this one confuses me a bit. It came in a little plastic envelope with no markings, so I’m labeling it based on the card. However, when I looked it up online for the review I realize that this is actually a “Peppermint Shower Tab.” Basically, you drop this tab on the floor of your shower, letting the water dissolve the tab and release an awakening peppermint aroma. Although I typically shower at night, I used this tab in the shower this morning and didn’t notice much of a scent. I am congested, so I thought this would be really beneficial to help open up my nose, but I don’t think it really did anything except for dissolve down my drain.

Mystical Blossoms Namaste Sexy Tea (6-8 servings) – Listed Value $15.00 (buy 12 servings for $8.00)

OK, now I’m starting to get annoyed with the listed values. They are all very inflated, which frankly I’m not digging. Regardless, this relaxing caffeine-free herbal tea blend has ingredients like nettle leaf, raspberry leaf, dried orange peel, hibiscus, and rosehips. It’s a green tea and is said to be especially nourishing for females menstruating. It’s a great way to sneak in extra vitamins and minerals! I love that this loose leaf blend came with a reusable tea-bag (although, I prefer metal ones that are easier to rinse out) but this is definitely a thoughtful touch for folks who may not have a way to brew loose-leaf tea otherwise. Unfortunately, this blend was not for me – it had far to mineral a flavor for me. I guess I’m just not a big nettle leaf fan.

Mystical Blossoms Breathe Aromatherapy Inhaler – Retail Value $7.00, Listed Value $6.00

Whelp, they must have sensed I’d be annoyed and now listed the value less than I found online. I love these little inhalers to keep in my purse in the winter. This inhaler helps to open up your sinuses and can even help reset your mood. It contains essential oils (eucalyptus, peppermint, fir needle, Italian lemon, cardamom, and laurel leaf). I really pick up the peppermint, and it has almost a menthol effect.

BuddhiBox Aromatherapy Necklace – Listed Value $25.00

I really like this necklace, which measures 18” but has a 2” extender, allowing it to range between 18-20”. It’s a simple charcoal color lava bead (around ½ inch on all 3 sides) set on a very delicate 25K gold chain. The lava bead serves as an essential oil diffuser, I think I will most often utilize this piece when I’m under the weather to keep healing scents nearby or when I know I’m going to be in a stressful situation to help maintain balance.

Halsa Essentials – Asana Flow Essential Oil (10 mL) – Retail Value $14.95, Listed Value $15.00

This blend is specially formulated to enhance your yoga practice, and I was glad to see it in this box. It has lavender, lemon, mandarin, and Bois de rose oil set in a base of fractionated coconut oil. I can really pick up the citrus and lavender scent. One of my favorite fragrances from Yankee Candle is called lavender and lemon and this kind of reminds me of that!

The Verdict: This is my first month of BuddhiBox and while I am pleased with the curation I am annoyed by the price variance (listed vs. online) on the card and the totally different Real Beauty item that was included. This box costs $39.95 a month ($34.95 + $5 shipping) and using the values I found online, I calculated around $80 (not including the bag).

To Wrap Up:

Colette’s subscription addiction started innocently enough with a few beauty boxes in 2013. As her life has evolved, so have her subscriptions – and some of her favorites now include boxes that cater towards lifestyle (Popsugar Must Have), pets (BarkBox), and children (Gap Outfit Box and Mac & Mia).
