Yogi Surprise “Surya Namaskar” August 2020 Review
Here is the info book for this month’s box. This month’s theme is “Surya Namaskar," which are sun salutations!
The back of the booklet contains a sun salutation asana to encourage energy and wellness. I don't feel like I've done yoga if I haven't done at least one sun salutation during the practice!
Tiny Bandit Moon Milk Candle + Crystal, 3.25 oz - Buy a 9 oz candle for $64 here
The scent of this candle and the crystals in it were made exclusively for Yogi Surprise, and I love it. The amazonite crystals have been cleansed with pure Himalayan Sea Salt and then charged in the sunshine of Southern California. I really enjoyed the light fragrance the candle it emits (my nose picks up an airy citrus note), but I wish there was more information about the specific scent and what properties amazonite has. That detail aside, I keep this candle next to my laptop while I type and the flickering flame with the pretty crystals brings me joy.
Aves Jewelry Chakra Keychain
This colorful chakra strand has a tree of life pendant on one side and a lobster clasp on the other, along with a feather chain. You can add this to your keys or a zipper pull to add a pop of color and positivity to everyday items.
Reign Together Massage Oil, 50 mL - Estimated Value $37.50 (Buy a 2 oz bottle for $45)
This item was the highlight of the box for me. This massage oil is made with broad-spectrum hemp oil and is lightly scented with citrus. I normally like a strong citrus scent, but considering that after one massage about 1/5 of the bottle was empty, the lighter scent level was perfect- anything heavier would have been overpowering. This is on the pricier end considering the amount of oil needed for a full massage, but both my partner and I enjoyed it so this just felt like a special treat. I can't say if the relaxation I experienced was from the hemp or the massage itself, but I was just happy to have the bliss.
Moji Sports Massage Trigger Ball - Retail Value $24.95
This massage ball is made of natural rubber and allows for more targeted pressure relief than a foam roller. I did find this a bit difficult to control- it is just a ball of solid rubber, so when you hit the right spot it feels amazing, but it is a little unwieldy. Regardless of that, this little ball has already been used multiple times and will continue to be utilized.
Vadham Turmeric Spice Tea, 15 ct - Retail Value $11.99
This tea is a spicy blend of turmeric, cardamom, cloves, and black pepper. This is the kind of tea I want to cuddle up with after a long day, and my preference is to drink it with milk added in as a tea latte. This tasted like a high-quality tea with a strong flavor, however, I am bummed that the "best by" date is pretty close to when this box was received.
Dr. Botanicals Cocoa + Coconut Mask, 1 oz - Retail Value $12.99
This was a variant item, but every subscriber should receive a “healing body care” item. This mask has cocoa butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil to deeply nourish your skin. I left this on for ten minutes after doing an exfoliating mask, and my skin was soft and soothed. 1 oz is on the smaller side for masks, but the price is affordable enough to make up for it.
The Verdict: I can always count on Yogi Surprise to deliver items that I will enjoy- that candle is absolutely lovely, and the body oil was a big treat. Value-wise I couldn't find a value for everything, but the values I did find added up to $87.43. When you throw in the value for the candle and keychain, I definitely think you meet the promised value of $100.
