I love unboxing new subscription boxes! Yuzen is a seasonal box (4x/year) filled with eco-conscious products meant to add a little zen to your life. They just released their spring edition which I opened here (available until April 30th or until they sell out). This box is packed with amazing products and I’m excited to share with you what’s inside today.
Yuzen boxes are truly packaged with care and intention. It comes inside a cardboard box for shipping and inside perfectly fits this pretty box pictured here with all the goodies inside. The first thing you see is a greeting from the Yuzen team and a gorgeous strip of authentic yuzen paper holding the blush tissue paper together. Already I’m feeling happy!
There are a lot of goodies in this box! For $33/box this is a fantastic value. By the way, you can subscribe for yourself, or you can gift a single Yuzen box to a friend which I think is a lovely option to have. In this box I found:
- SpaRitual Mini Nail Lacquer in ‘Up At Noon’ (a sheer neon pink shimmer)
- Co Pur Lavender Lime Hand Balm
- Spa Technologies Microdermabrasion Cream (love this company! So excited to try this!) sample size
- Acure Lip Lush in ‘Date Worthy’ (these glosses are awesome…check back soon for a giveaway I’m doing that includes some!)
- Yurrku Utopia Night Cream (I think this is a sample size…10ml)
- Innersense Pure Harmony Hairbath (sample sizes)
- Nubian Heritage Honey & Blackseed 24 Hour All Natural Deodorant (full size)
- Mini Chocolove bar in Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate (the wrapper came off right after I took this photo – incredibly delicious)
I absolutely love this box – I’m most excited by the nail polish, lip gloss, chocolate, and Spa Technologies microdermabrasion sample but everything in here looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it all out. The only thing I’m not super psyched on is the deodorant. Even though I have been on a search for an all natural deodorant for months I’ve yet to find one I love and though this one looks like it has great ingredients in it, it smells a little too strong to me (kind of like laundry detergent fragrance?). I am very sensitive to scents and get headaches easily. For many it might be no big deal, but I’ll try it and see how it goes. If I like the formula, I might try one of their other scents (their coconut & papaya seems more my style).
Acure Lip Lush in Date Worthy is a super pretty brick red with lots of glossiness but no shimmer which I really love. Contains organic argan oil and is super silky and moisturizing!
I’m very excited to try this sample from Spa Technologies because I am currently in love with their eye cream. I’ll let you know how I like this!
The Yurrku Australia Utopia Night Cream also excites me. I’ve never heard of this brand and it looks like a great one to try. It contains “rare hand-harvested native nectars from the desert and top end areas of Australia.” Cool! Discovering new brands is part of the joy of this kind of box!
I give Yuzen box a big thumbs up. I’d definitely recommend trying them and think these boxes also make great gifts for your mother, daughter, sister, bridesmaid etc. xo – Naomi*DisclaimerThis post includes free samples but I do not receive compensation for these posts and I would not be reviewing and recommending these products if I didn't absolutely love them.

It looks so Good! I’d love to try, I was so disappointed with the birchbox I was looking for a new one and I think you convinced me! I can’t wait to try it !

I love Yuzen! They are one of the best boxes around and always have great items I have never heard of. They have the opening experience down. I always feel I am getting a little present when I open it.

We’re honored to have two of our products included in the Spring Yuzen Box! Less is more with our products as they are 100% pure, organic and toxin-free. After harvesting ingredients, we cold-press and steam-distill them, which results in perfectly pure extracts. Our company is also Leaping Bunny Certified. Naomi, please let us know how they work for you!
