Yuzen Box Review

You know how the subscription box is a big deal now? Snacks, clothes, beauty supplies…

Here’s my deal with a beauty box: It needs to be filled with products that are not easy to get samples of, stuff you super bad want to try, items that make you are excited to try.

That’s how I felt about Yuzen. I’ve sampled many of these beauty boxes, so when the folks at Yuzen asked if they could send me one I didn’t have high hopes for it being something new and different.

From the packaging down to the actual products, I was impressed. The contents are pretty and I did feel excited about the products. Two of the items were on my must-try list, and they are all absolutely nontoxic. Totally love that!

Here’s what the Yuzen box included:

Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Facial Treatment – One of the items on my must-try list, but can’t use it because of the aloe allergy. My sister is testing it out (and excited to do so), so I’ll let you know on that in the near future.

Balanced Guru Balm Me Up – I tried this balm over the winter and it is a favorite around our house. Not sad to see another one show up.

Chocolove Cherries and Almonds Chocolate Bar – Chocolate doesn’t last long on my desk. T’was delicious and a fun addition to the box.

Lotus Wei Infinite LoveMist – I’ve been wanting to try this brand but, honestly, had kind of given up on natural perfumes/scents. They always turn out to be a let down. Other than my favorite by Tata Harper, that is, and now this one too. Lotus Wei manages to make a personal scent that smells fabulous, no overly essential oil-y or like it is trying too hard. I tried Infinite Love –a mandarin, rose, honey mix- which is light, delicate, and feminine. Try this spray! You won’t be sorry.

Sranrom Urban Wellness Calm Down Hand Cream + The Mindful Living Compassion Candle – Yummy smelling hand cream that softens skin. Not sticky or greasy. I am constantly burning candles at home and always on the look for ones that are less toxic. Fun to find one here.

Sumbody Bath Fizzer + Bath Melts – Have not tried yet, but they smell awesome. Will let you know…

Read more about each of these brands on the Yuzen brands page.

Bottom line: I really like this every 3 months-subscription beauty box. And guess what, Mother’s Day is coming up, so there’s your gift idea.
