A little note from Yuzen. I love these little notes. And in it are descriptions of everything in the box and why it was chosen.
The first thing that I pulled out from the organza bag was JJ's Sweets Sea Salt Cocomels. According to the card, they're "lucious, mouthwatering treats with a sprinkle of sea salt for an irresistable taste combination." I haven't tried these yet, but they look pretty good so far.
The next thing I pulled out was PHYT's Lait Hydro Nettoyant which is pretty much water soluble cleansing milk. Organic and "chemical free", I'm pretty excited to try it. Possible full review later.
The next item came in a smaller organza bag - ACURE Argan Oil and Marula Oil. I'm pretty excited about this because I've always wanted to try the brand ACURE and argan oil. I've been loving oils lately. Maybe I can use for my hair and body. I'm not too keen on using this for my face, but I will try it though - just to see it helps.
The next items are SPA RITUAL's Emerald City Nail Lacquer. You have absolutely no idea how excited and supped up I am for this. Not only have I been wanting to try SPA RITUAL, but it came in one of my favorite colors! It also came in a base/top coat - something I do need.
The next item is PRITE's Moisturizing Body Lotion. I love that it came in a tiny push pump bottle. Perfect for throwing into your purse or pocket at work. I tried this right away. It's very moisturizing but light enough to not be sticky. It's also made with organic aloe vera and honey.
I then pulled out Action Wipes, which are "premoistened, body wipes created specifically for sports, traveling, camping, picnicking, or anytime you ar eon the move." Made with "therapeutic essential oils of tea tree and eucalyptus oil." I'm going to put this in my car's emergency makeup kit.
The next item is Level Naturals Shower Bomb. I actually tried this today and it's pretty cool! You put it on the floor of your shower away from the shower head, and it fizzies to give out a strong aromatic scent. This one was made with menthol and eucalyptus oil. (Random note: I've actually got a cold today and this helped me breathe better while I was in the shower.) I want more of these in different scents!
And this is a picture of what they look like. The box came with four bath bombs. I do wish they sent a variety of scents instead of the same scent.
The next item is a $40 gift card from Juil's. I was browsing their site and noticed that pretty much everything was $85. I'm thinking of giving my code away.
The rest of the box were informative cards about the products. I did notice that as I read the note card from Yuzen, that I never received one of the items: the SUKI Luscious Lips Berry Cream Trio. Everyone makes mistakes and I'm sure this is just a human error. I will follow up with a future edit on how Yuzen responds.
Overall: I'm very pleased with this box. Yuzen still remains to be my favorite Subscription Boxes. I hope this experience doesn't jade this box for me. At $26, I feel that this box has a lot of value. At the moment, they aren't taking any new subscriptions, but you can always sign up for their mailing list.
Did you subscribe to Yuzen? If so, how do you like it?
UPDATE: 5/15/13: I received an email saying they would send me the missing item. Really happy with customer service right now. Just waiting for it in the mailbox. :)
UPDATE: 5/19/13: I finally received the goodies from the mail! A full review to come soon.
