Spa In A Box: Yuzen Review and Giveaway

I received a Yuzen natural and organic spa products box to facilitate this review and giveaway.

Spa In A Box:  Yuzen Review

spa in a box

The folks behind Yuzen are a husband and wife team.  They created a quarterly spa subscription box called Yuzen Box.  It is a quarterly subscription of natural and organic spa products and the Yuzen Box promotes time for reflection, pause and relaxation for oneself. The Yuzen catch phrase is “Sending you a litle Zen.”  I think that is a perfect description and I would also describe it as a spa in a box.  The quarterly spa subscription Yuzen Box is sent out at Holiday, Valentines Day, Mother’s Day and Fall.  They also have a gift box for single gifts and a men’s box. Each box has over $50 worth of top line spa products and most are exclusive to Yuzen.

My Yuzen Box arrived and I pulled it out of the packing box to find a beautifully wrapped box.  I peeked inside to find a card that lists each of the products and information about them.  There was also a beautiful piece of oragami paper over the tissue wrapped contents.  I closed it right back up to save it for a day when the kids and hubby were out and I could enjoy a little spa time at my home, at my leisure, and without all the expense of a spa trip!

Yuzen Box Review

The Yuzen Box really is like a spa in a box in and it is jam packed full of goodies.  When I opened the tissue paper there was a beautiful gauze bag filled with all kinds of natural and organic spa goods to appeal to all of my senses.  There was a lovely LEVEL NATURALS Travel Candle that I lit to create to the spa mood.  It has a lemon verbena scent from natural essential oils and is a 100% natual, vegan soy candle with lead-free wick.

I got my manicure on with JURILQUE Rose Hand Cream which is a rich and protective hand treatment.  I love the scent of rose and the healing effect of the calendula.  I also love that it is eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced.  I got my pedicure on with Kerstin Florian Balm which is an invigorating foot lotoin featuring menthol, rosemary, pine, and lavender.  I was quite impressed with this balm as it did wonders for my dry cracked skin without leaving behind a greasy feel.  I also appreciated that the Kerstin Florian Balm has no parabens or petroleum and is cruelty-free.  I finished up my mani /pedi with a caot of fingernail polish from SPARITUAL.  Now, I normally don’t like fingernail polish but the vegan SPARITUAL lacquers are free of DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene so I can get down with that! There was a fun gold glitter that I used on my hands and a stunning  red that I used on my toenails.  I find myself sniffing my nails and thinking of Jennifer Lawson’s character in American Hustler!

To get my facial spa on, there were two products included in the Yuzen Box.  PINO Facial Mask which contains natural and nourishing ingredients such as pro vitamin B5, vitamin E, and horse chesntut seed extract.  The avocado and jojoba oil helped it slather on nicely and is great for those with sensitive skin.  I love that the PINO facial mask is 95% organic ingredients.  I followed this up with the SANITAS Moisture Mist which increases the penetration of hydration into the skin- great for my dry skin!

Like any truly great spa experience, I followed it up with a little treat for my tastebuds!  The included Sun Cups Dark Chocolate Mint Cups were divine and had an extra to snack on another day.  I also enjoyed the TARA SPA THERAPY Stress Relief Roll-On Remedy.  It is like a spa in the bottle, a little sniff helps me relax and feel more joyful.

I have to say that anyone who gave me a Yuzen Box as a gift, would score big.  Hint, hint, hubby!  Want to try a Yuzen Box for yourself?  Who wouldn’t want a spa in a box right?!  Plus, I think it is really a great deal at just $33 for all those goodies! You can get all the info at Yuzen Box website.

    It was interesting to read about the owners of this new company. I learned that LOHAS is an acronym for Yuzen’s target audience: Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability consumers. Also they explain the meaning of the company’s name. It’s always nice when you can feel connected to the people behind the brand name. I would love to experience a box of Zen from Yuzen!

    I love all the different types of subscription boxes coming out these days, and I love this one. If I’m lucky enough to win it, I would use this as a gift for a dear friend of mine who is battling cancer. I think she could use a spay day, even if it’s just at home, to relax and recharge.

  4. Natalie Brown says

    Hi! What caught my eye was the known brands that are included in the boxes. Especially the SpaRitual nail polishes. Nice! Thank-you!

    I like that they come seasonally. Not so often you get too much and often enough you have something pleasant to look forward to.

    I love candles and love that The Mindful Living Candle is hand-poured by a peaceful farming community in the heart of Thailand—it’s formulated with the soothing natural aromas to help ease your mood and balance your mind.
