I was super excited when my October 2014 Yogi Surprise appeared on my porch earlier this afternoon. It was the first ever box from them and I love checking out boxes from a new subscription! I actually won an annual subscription through a referral contest Yogi Surprise had (don’t tell them, but I would have subscribed anyway ;)) and will be paying it forward down the road to you guys with a little Yogi Surprise giveaway.
Yogi Surprise is a monthly care package designed to complement your healthy lifestyle. Within each Yogi Surprise you’ll receive 6-8 full size products ranging from unique yoga accessories and natural beauty items to herbal tonics, organic snacks and super food essentials. One subscriber per month will also win that month’s Yogi Surprise retreat! This month’s retreat is in Playa Negra, Costa Rica and all you need to do to win is post a picture of your box and incorporate that month’s theme. You can check out this month’s entries here.
Yogi Surprise ships via USPS Priority Mail. My box took a detour through Pennsylvania, so instead of taking two days to arrive, it took three.
I thought the presentation on this box was fantastic and the box itself was very well done. You can tell they spent a long time working on this before they launched and it totally paid off.
As I mentioned, the October 2014 Yogi Surprise was their first ever box and they selected with a message of self-love. The box included the following hand-selected items to give back to yourself:
~Buddha Nose Awaken Yoga Mat Spray ($10): Fact of the matter is, yoga mats get stinky. They just do. And this will fix that. You can also use this as a hand sanitizer or a deodorizing spray!
~Teatulta Organic Tea Medley ($7.49): I think we all know by now that I don’t love tea, but I will pass this along to my cousin who does. I kind of expected this box to include tea, so it doesn’t bother me at all.
~PeoplesTowels Organic Cotton Towel ($6): I use way too much paper towel (no seriously I am a horrible offender), so I am very intrigued by this. I would love to know if any of you use something like this in place of paper towels and how you like it? Is it hard to get used to? How do you store them? Tell me everything.
~VedaBar PittaBar ($4): I actually am quite “hangry” right now and probably should have eaten this before I started the review. Instead I am going to throw it in my bag for when I am running around and don’t have any other easy options.
~Big Dipper Wax Works Beeswax Aromatherapy Tin ($5): This smells great and I can see how it’s a calming scent.
~Emmy’s Organics Dark Cacao Macaroons ($2.95): I like this flavor much better than the Chai Spice ones I received from Love With Food a while back. They contain only organic ingredients and can fix that sweet tooth craving.
~Rooted Beauty Facial Wipes ($5.99): Love these! I have gotten them in boxes in the past and they are fabulous. They are great for travel, late nights or, of course, after yoga class.
All totaled I came up with a value of $41.43 for the October 2014 Yogi Surprise. It’s just shy of the $44.95 monthly price tag, but I know that founding members (those who signed up before the launch) got 20% off their boxes for life which makes it a nice deal. Plus, you can’t get many of these items locally (at least you can’t around here), so you if bought them all on your own you would have to factor in shipping!
