First Look

The box looked like it had a ton of stuff in it and I was excited to dig through it all!

November 2014 Yogi Surprise
The Information Card

The November 2014 Yogi Surprise included a variety of items inspired by wellness and joy to help you acknowledge all the beauty and bliss in your life.  Here is what was inside:

~Hurraw! Vata Lip Balm ($4.29): This is a “grounding” lip balm.  It’s infused with “rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil, creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter, emollient cold pressed organic castor oil and plants, fruits and roots. I can’t really say that I felt more grounded after using it, but I did think it was fantastic.

~Valentina’s Home Brewed Sunny Outlook Natural Body Mist ($8.99): Oh, I love this!  It smells amazing and is described as a great way to “carry your intentions with you throughout the day”.

~Golden Earth Chakra Wellness Oil ‘Energy’ ($26): I cannot find this online and it’s driving me nuts!  Not very zen like I know.  It’s a roll-on oil that helps your active wellness and also carries and emphasis on creativity, grace, sensuality and procreation.

~Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant (Cedarwood + Juniper) ($9): Okay, so I was super hesitant about this at first, but I am telling you, it works.  I have gotten a few containers of it in boxes here and there, and really like it.  I am still not in love with the application aspect (you can use your fingers or the little spatula thing), but it’s good stuff.

~Sencha Green Tea Mints (Tropical Mango) ($2.95): If you haven’t tried these, you need to.  They are the best mints out there.  For real.  So good.

~Lush Nuts – Coconut Lavender ($4.50): I am not a fan of almonds (except I do like almond butter) so I will be passing these on to B.  They are quite an interesting combination though that’s for sure.

~Earthling Organics – Heirloom Cacao Bar ($2.49): So this isn’t, well, it isn’t like I thought it would be, but I also don’t love it.  They are obviously a better snack choice than things I normally eat though.

~Valentina’s Home Brewed Psychic Detox Bath Salts ($3.50): Depending in the outcome of this MSU-OSU game tonight, I may need a detox bath.  I actually should take a detox bath while watching the game.  I could use some relaxation right now.

~Bonus Surprise Item: Jo-Sha Wipes ($2.59): This was a bonus item this month!  Everyone got a bonus, but I don’t know if we all got the same thing.  I like wipes like this and they work nice for after a workout or whenever you need some refreshing.

All totaled I came up with a value of $64.31 for the November 2014 Yogi Surprise.  I really liked this month’s box and love how they boosted the value in comparison to the October box.  I hope these fabulous boxes continue because this one made me very happy!

ETA: Per the Yogi Surprise Facebook page, one of items in this month’s box was supposed to be “authentic, handmade Indian Tiger Eye Mala Beads–a $30 dollar value”.  According to a card included in the box (my box either didn’t have this or I threw it away) “The Mala Beads are being handmade in India by a special Fair-Trade program just for Yogi Surprise; they’re utterly beautiful and we pinky promise they’ll be ready for the next box! We deeply apologize if you were expecting them this month. “To make up for the missing beads, we replaced them with two other products and added a special extra bonus surprise!” .  Thank you to Ava and Becky for the heads up on this!

    Where are the beads? The second spoiler for this month were tiger eye meditation beads!

    1. Jennifer

      This is an excellent question. I had forgotten all about that! I just commented on their Facebook where they posted the spoiler. I’ll update this when I hear!

  2. Becka

    There’s a card in the box that says the beads didn’t make it in time.

    From the card:

    “The Mala Beads are being handmade in India by a special Fair-Trade program just for Yogi Surprise; they’re utterly beautiful and we pinky promise they’ll be ready for the next box! We deeply apologize if you were expecting them this month.

    “To make up for the missing beads, we replaced them with two other products and added a special extra bonus surprise!”

      ^^ I will add that I am kind of bothered by this. I was unimpressed with the first box, began the unsubscribing process (which apparently is a two-step process because after I send an initial cancellation email, they sent me an email back asking me to please stay another month, and email back if I still wanted to cancel) but I decided it give it one more try when I saw the mala beads spoiler. But I’m not really a fan of the contents of this box either (seriously, very little to do with yoga) and… no beads. I understand that sh** happens, but maybe don’t release a spoiler that you aren’t certain you can deliver on..?

      1. Jennifer

        Didn’t they just recently release that spoiler too? Like a week ago maybe?

        1. Becka

          The teaser on their FB page was posted on Oct 29th.

    2. Jennifer

      I did not get this card! Or I tossed it. One of the two. Thank you for the update!

    I personally did enjoy the box but was annoyed about the beads. I signed on for that specific reason. I feel the beads should be mailed out separate from the next box. I understand issues arise. And they did make up for it. The card was very small and unnoticeable. When i emailed them and went back to my box it took a few seconds to find the card hahaha customer service seems fast tho! Ill stay on for now. I like to give all my boxes a chance through the holidays bcs those are the best ones. Oh and i LOVED the lip balm. My middle daughter and i couldnt stop usung it last night.

    1. Jennifer

      I found my card! It was really tiny!

    This was my first box and I really liked it. I’ve been wanting to try Schmidt’s deodorant and winter is a safer time to use natural deo. I also love the Sunny Outlook spray. It’s super cold and dark where I live so the spray makes me happy. It seems like a nice value and I’m excited about all the products (that almost never happens so I feel super lucky).

    I didn’t get the first box and think this one is better, though I am a fan of tea so I can never get enough:) It would be nice to get a yoga mat coupon or yoga socks, but the items feel healthy lifestylish. Fingers crossed for the next box to be as good.

    1. Jennifer

      I liked that you called it a “safer time. That is very true!!

  5. Amanda

    Does anyone know specifically what the two extra products and special surprise were to replace the mala beads? It looks that what was received is what was printed on the card with nothing extra included. Also I have to say that so far the only surprise has been that this “treat” has been less a retreat and more disappointment and frustration.
