February Yuzen Box Review – Spring

Yuzen is now a quarterly a subscription service with a cost of $26.00 every three months. 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 quarter’s box will be valued at $60.00 or above. To explain their switch from a monthly to a quarterly service, Yuzen sent out the below e-mail:

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.”

I am really going to miss receiving this box monthly, as it is certainly one of my favorites!!

First Peek!

All of the products are contained in a nice mesh bag. My guess is that this keeps them protected and from sliding around during shipping.

Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink – $6.25

Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip Plumber in Tokyo – $6.25

Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip Drink with SPF 15 – $3.00

*I had guessed at these prices and used 1/4 of their full size value, I think they are pretty accurate because I did find a Lip Drink travel size for $3.99

These products are vegan, gluten and cruelty free and use all natural ingredients and colors.

Red Flower Candle in Italian Blood Orange – $14.00

I received a different scent in an earlier Yuzen box and absolutely fell in love with these candles, so I was very happy to see another one in this box! Red Flower Candles are 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%

Spa Technologies Marine Repair Cream .25 oz (?) – $12.00

I really like Spa Technologies products not only do they seem to work well but they smell amazing too. Use discount code YUZEN at spatechnologies.com to save 10% plus free shipping (which is astronomically large for the 8oz full sized bottle we ordered from an earlier box!)
