postheadericon Yuzen ~ Autumn Box 2013

 

Yuzen used to ship in a USPS envelope, but switched things up this season.  They still ship  via Priority Mail, but they now ship in a box.

Yuzen is $33/quarter and it always comes with colorful Japanese paper called Yuzen as wrapping. They coordinate the wrapping with the insert about the products.  A BEAUTIFUL presentation.  All the products included in the box are deluxe sample size to full size.

postheadericon Yuzen ~ February 2013 Spring Box

 

Yuzen is $26/quarter and it always comes with colorful Japanese paper called Yuzen as wrapping. They coordinate the wrapping with the insert about the products.  A BEAUTIFUL presentation.  All the products included in the box are deluxe sample size to full size.

This month is “Season of Love and New Beginnings.”

Taken from the card insert from the Spring Yuzen Box:

“In My Garden The First Butterfly of the Season Just Won’t Stay” Abe Midori

 

 

Marine Repair Cream from Spa Technologies: a botanical product made from seaweed that is free of parabens and petroleum products.  It’s also a moisturizer. There’s no size listed, but it’s about 1/2 the size of the Juara mask, so I’m declaring it a .25 oz sample.  The full size (2 oz) is $96 (WOW!), so this sample is worth $12.

Juara all-natural mask from is made with avocado and banana.  It’s a leave-on mask, so it keeps working long after the usual 10-15 minutes you usually get from a face mask.  A full-size 2.8 oz retails for $35, making this .5 oz sample worth $6.25.

Kneipp Deep Sleep Mineral Bath Salt: With Valerian root and hops to help ease a racing mind at the end of a long day and promote a deep, restorative sleep so yu can wake up refreshed. The full-size 17.6 oz retails for $19, making this 2.1 oz sample worth about $2.25.

Jane Iredale lippies:  Lipdrink is a moisturizer with SPF 15 and a light lemon scent, the Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain goes on clear and adjusts to a pink according to your body chemistry, and the Lip Plumper is a tinted moisturizer in “Tokyo”, a sheer red. There is no size listed on these, so I can’t assign value, but the Lip Drink is $12 on the website, and the Lip Plumper and Just Kissed are $25 each.

 

 

Essence of Vali.  The description is “a warm floral, slightly citrus scent that’s sensual and serene at the same time.” Full size (2 oz) retails for $60

Naturopathica Espresso Mud Body Scrub: exfoliates the skin and removes impurities with “rich ingredients like Coffee Arabica, Indian Sarsaparilla, and volcanic pumice and black silt clay” to get the blood pumpin’!  The full size is 5 oz and retails for $32, so this (generous) 2 oz sample is worth $12.80!

Nova Monda!  This is an “eco-ethical” treat. This 2-truffle pack is available from their website for $4. They were sooooo yummy!

Red Flower: Blood Orange scent. This “Little Flower” candle has a 15-hour burn time and retails for $14. This is my third candle and I can’t get enough of them!

All the links go directly to the company. There are NO referral links. I paid for this box on my own and all opinions are 100% mine.

postheadericon Yuzen Box ~ January 2013

Yuzen box, a bit of zen in each box, is quickly becoming my favorite subscription box. This is only my second month, and if the level of service, and the quality of boxes continue like it has been it will no doubt be my MOST favorite box.

Yuzen is $26/quarter and it always comes with colorful Japanese paper called Yuzen as wrapping. They coordinate the wrapping with the insert about the products.  A BEAUTIFUL presentation.  All the products included in the box are deluxe sample size to full size.

This month is “New Beginnings and Inspired Awakenings”

 

Essence of Vali ~ Sleep ~ A Bedtime Ritual.  Essences of lavender, majoram, cedarwood, and ylang ylang, helps ease you into sleep and comforts you during times of stress – a drop is all it takes.

Amorafloria Stress Less Foaming Bubble Bath ~ FULL SIZE Lavender, Chamomile and Sage. Soaks away anxiety and pressure and calms frazzled nerves, pouring welcome tranquility into your body and mind.

Shea Terra Organics Argan Oil ~ 100% pure. Rich in vitamins A & E and antiaging squalene, exotic argan oil is non-clogging, non greasy and has an amazing ability to repair skin.

SWEET RIOT Cacao Nibs ~ Lightly roasted, then dunked into 65% dark chocolate. YUM!

GaiamTV.com –  a trial of the online service for Active Health and Wellness.

ACURE Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner ~ Triple moisture system is formulated with organic argan oil, argan stem cells, CoQ10, and organic sea buckthorn oil, high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Vegan and free of sulfates,sodium chloride and phthalates. Cherry/Almond YUMMY scent.

Tilvee Lavender & Lemon Hydrating balm ~ FULL SIZE Light scent, very moisturizing lib balm. Cocoa butter, avocado oil, rosehip seed oil and PURE unrefined coconut butter that melts into your lips and hydrates them quickly. LOVE IT!

Pangea Organics – Italian Red Mandarin with Rose Discovery Cream ~ Perfect for dry to sensitive skin. This facial cream is made with bio-available ingredients that provide superior hydration plus anti-aging, antioxidant, smoothing and calming benefits.

With the exception of the Gaiam offer I plan to buy everything that came in this box in it’s full size form! I’m a bit sad that starting next month Yuzen will transition into a seasonal box. Though perhaps that means bigger and better boxes? Knowing this company, I’m sure it does! To get yours go to www.Yuzenbox.com.

postheadericon Yuzen ~ December

What inspired us to create Yuzen?
We recognize that people crave a quiet moment to pause, but so rarely give themselves permission or the time to do so. Yuzen encourages reconnection with that quiet, wise place inside all of us. We provide supportive and eco-conscious products that people can feel good about – and more importantly, nourish that space. We’ve long been inspired by companies and organizations “doing good” in the world. Yuzen is our way of sharing the very best of the best.

How is Yuzen different from sample box subscriptions?
We have seen the emergence of the beauty sample box trend, but many do not offer products that are eco-friendly, natural or organic. Also, Yuzen generally includes very few true sample sizes (sizes that are made for marketing purposes and are not sold). Most of our products are full-sized – or at least premium sample-sized. Each month’s box is valued at $60 – or more!  We recognize that consumers have begun asking where they can find the purest and best quality products, but are often overwhelmed by all the choices. Each month’s selection is carefully curated to provide amazing, healthy lifestyle products people can trust.

You can get Yuzen for $26 monthly or $78 quarterly.

I was so excited while  opening this box! From the outer package, to what you see above to what you’ll see inside is just breathtaking. They really take their time and make each box special.

The note was on beautiful paper. It read:

Happy Holidays!

“Tis the season to be Zenful! As we celebrate this special time with friends & family, remember to treat yourself to a little zen as well. This box is just what you need – whether it’s a little time for yourself with a relaxing night in, or a new scent and color for your next holiday event. Either way we’ve got you covered!

Oh how I hated undoing the bows and ripping the paper! Once inside I found a bag with seven goodies.

Spa Technologies ~ Hydrating Laminaria Oil. It’s to sooth the skin with organic ingredients and 100% pure seaweed oil. It’s scented with ylang-ylang and bitter orange essential oils.

Ambre Blends ~ Four Essences Natural Fragrances. Contains only the finest organic ingredients to sooth your mind and your sense of well-being. Once activated by the body’s warmth, there essences produce an UNIQUE long lasting individual fragrance that complements one’s own natural chemistry.

Red Flower Candles (I got one in PopSugar and love it) I can’t put my finger on what this one smells like.

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthron Cleansing Bar ~ washes awah pollutants and renews and revitalizes your skin

Sparitual “Hunk of Burnin’ Love” Red lacquer & Multi-Tasker Base & Topcoat in One.

Missy J’s truffley treats. Made with carob,mint,lime,and sea salt. YUM!

(Just off camera) Tara Spa Therapy Stress Relieving Bath Salts.

This box did not dissapoint. I love everything in it and can’t wait to try it all in some form or another!  To get your own box go to www.yuzenbox.com
