My first Yuzen Box arrived yesterday!!! I couldn’t wait to dig in to start sampling the wonderfully procured natural and eco-friendly products!
Yuzen costs $33/box and boxes are shipped quarterly.
Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust (Gold) – 1.8 grams (FULL SIZE!) – $13.50
All natural ingredients and colors * Cruelty-free
Excited to try this to add a little “shimmer” for the holidays!
Jurlique Rose Hand Cream – 15 mL (0.5 oz) – $9.38
Eco-friendly * Cruelty Free
I’m not a huge fan of the rose scent on this item, however, it does appear to go on nice with a light finish (not greasy).
Kerstin Florian Fuß Balm – 30 ml – $8.12
No parabens or petroleum * Cruelty-free
This is a foot lotion that smells quite nice! My feet feel super soft, so going with it works well too!
Level Naturals Travel Candle (Lemon Verbena) – 2 oz – $6.67
100% natural, vegan, soy candle * Lead-free wick * Toxin-free scent
So this is the second “travel” candle we have gotten this month (November Birchbox Man had one also). Let’s just say I like the scent on this one MUCH better – still not 100% what to do with it – suggestions would be helpful! (read: I’m probably not going to pack it away on my next trip…)
Pino Facial Mask – 22 ml (0.74 fl oz) – $8
No chemicals or preservatives * 95% organic ingredients * Cruelty-free
Excited to try this mask!
Sanitas Moisture Mist – 60 ml – $5.40
No parabens or preservatives * No artificial ingredients * Kosher
Seems like a light mist – my face doesn’t get overly dry normally, but this may help this winter!
SpaRitual Golden Rule Lacquer – 5ml – $6.50
Free of DBP, Formaldehyde, and toluene * Naturally colored and free of synthetic dyes * Vegan
I received a SpaRitual full size sample in my Fall 2013 FabFitFun box – and really liked the product. This is more of just a glitter (no color), which makes me feel a little bit like a teenager wearing it. That being said, again would probably be good for the holidays.
Sun Cups Dark Chocolate Mint Cups – 2 cups – $1.67
Non-GMO * Rainforest Alliance Certified
Husband got to eat these (can’t eat chocolate); and he said they tasted like a York peppermint patty – he was pretty impressed. Now for my little complaint, why do these boxes keep shipping chocolate?! Arg!
Tara Spa Therapy Stress Relief Roll-on Remedy – 5 ml – $3
Made with certified organic herbal extracts * No parabens or preservatives * No artificial colors or dyes * Petroleum-free * Cruelty-free
Tried applying this, not really sure if it did anything? May have to bring into work in order to truly test it!
Overall my Winter 2013 Yuzen box was worth an estimated $62.24 and I paid $33! The only products that I was less then excited about were the chocolate (as stated above) and the rose hand lotion (the smell :S).
Bottom line: LOVED my Winter 2013 Yuzen box and can’t wait for the next one to come in the mail (it’ll be a painful 3-month wait!) It appears Yuzen is still accepting subscribers – I’d jump on now as I had to wait awhile for them to open up subscriptions!
