December Yuzen Box Review

Yuzen is a subscription service that costs $26/month. In your box you will receive a mix of eco-friendly, cruelty-free, natural and organic lifestyle and beauty products. All products are either very generously deluxe-sized or full-sized. . Each month’s box value is always $60 or above. Yuzen has recently sent out an e-mail saying that their subscription boxes will now be quarterly.

We are writing you today to tell you about changes we are making to our subscription format. Starting in February, we will be sending subscription boxes 4 times a year – instead of every month.

While we are excited about creating 4 beautiful seasonal boxes for you, we will miss sharing new experiences and products with you every month. We feel the additional time between boxes will give us all the opportunity to explore and enjoy the products more fully. You can be sure that we will continue to work hard to bring you the very best of the best in each and every box.”

My First Yuzen box! I have to tell you that the second I opened the outer envelope, it spelled like a day-spa was unleashed at my house, It was almost instant relaxation!

Beautiful presentation and gorgeous paper, the whole thing was like a work of art! (this may be heavily influenced by the induced zen of the above mentioned day-spa aroma!)

Missy J’s Truffley Treats in Mint,Lime and Sea Salt – $2.99

This is a caffeine, dairy and refined sugar free treat. It sounded like an awesome prospect until I tasted it. The Carob was very prominent and tasted nothing chocolate like, the mint was good but I could really taste what seemed to be a strong presence of honey (although none is listed on the ingredients – only grain sweetened carob.) It was interesting to try but I don’t think I will be buying these again.

Spa Technologies Hydrating Laminaria Oil – $11.00

This oil is farking AWESOME!!! It smells unbelievable nice with a nice flora/plant and lemon scent (VERY day-spa! and even hubby likes the scent) It is great for moisturizing after the shower or throughout the day, the husband has been using it on his hands because he suffers some severe rough spots. This is so great we have already ordered some more directly from the manufacturer ! Use discount code YUZEN at spatechnologies.com to save 10% plus free shipping (which is astronomically large for the 8oz bottle we ordered!)

Red Flower Candle in Ocean – $14.00

Made with pure, potent and exotic ingredients and scents are 100% botanically based. This smells awesome! I will have to report back on the claim of 15 hour burn time, but even if it doesn’t it is a happy addition to our home! Use discount code YUZEN20 at redflower.com to save 20%

This bar is says “ It is paraben-free and cruelty-free, and contains NO dairy, wheat, gluten, sodium, yeast or preservatives”

We haven’t tried it yet but it does smell delightful.

Sparitual Mini Multi-Tasker Base and Top Coat In One .17 oz – $6.50

Sparitual Nail Polish Mini in Hunk of Burnin’ Love .17 oz – $6.50

These bottle are so cute and such a great idea to allow you to not only try a brand but also a color, I can’t wait!

Tara Spa Therapy Stress Relieving Bath Salts – $4.00

I definitely need some stress relieving! This will make for a nice escape when I finally get the time!

Ambre Blends Four Essences Natural Fragrances Sample Pack – $9.00

All four of these scents smell fantastic, (I consider one a bit more masculine than the rest,) and are warm and subtle.

The approximate value in this month’s box is $60.94! That is an awesome value for just $26.00 and the spa-like scent alone makes this box worth it! I am just sorry that I did not subscribe sooner and that this box will be quarterly starting in February.
