BuddhiBox Review - November 2014 - Eco-Lifestyle Subscription Box

 

What is it? BuddhiBox 
How Much? $30.95 US per month, plus $9.99 shipping to Canada 
What’s in it? Mix of 4-6 full-size products and product samples to enrich mind, body, and soul.

BuddhiBox is a new subscription service for yoga lovers.  The goal of BuddhiBox is to deliver monthly mindfulness through a curated box of products that enhance your yoga practice and lifestyle". Each month you will receive items that enrich mind, body, and soul. Items may include healthy food, supplements, beauty products, and yoga accessories. A monthly BuddhiBox will include 4-6 products for you to discover and share. 
 
Even if you don't practice yoga, BuddhiBox is for people who enjoy a peaceful and mindful existence. BuddhiBox practices Saucha (living purely) and only partners with businesses that follow ethical and conscious standards in production. They also donate a portion of proceeds to charity. This month, BuddiBox is sponsoring One Love San Diego
 
This BuddhiBox shipped November 10th from San Diego, California, and arrived at my door for delivery November 13th. Unfortunately I wasn't home, so I picked it up a couple days ago. Very quick shipping though.

First look

The first look wasn't a surprise. BuddhiBox has been promoting this box for quite a while, and all the products were revealed in advance. I knew what I was getting when I signed up. BuddhiBox also sent a full reveal e-mail a couple days after the boxes shipped. For this box, I won't complain since the spoilers were already out, but in the future, I hope they treat it more as a surprise and don't reveal so much in advance. I had the same request with the newly launched Indulge Me Box.


 
The box included a detailed product card, a yoga posture card (Downward Facing Dog), and a recipe for raw, vegan Mint Chocolate Nanaimo Bars. My mother lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia, home of the Nanaimo Bar, and my Grandmother makes THE BEST original Nanaimo Bar around.  For the cream layer, this version uses soaked raw nuts and spinach! I'm not sure I'm ready for a raw-volution.

Yoga Digest Magazine (November issue, $5.99)
A vibrant community of like-minded, optimistic and passionate wellness advocates who inspire, educate, and connect through a shared belief that everyone deserves a happy and healthy lifestyle. Spreading the passion for yoga, one page at a time.


Jo-Sha Wipes (4 assorted, $4)
Essential oil wipes that cleanse and naturally disinfect while the subtle aromatherapy soothes the senses. 


Great Soles Ballet/Barre/Yoga Socks ($12)
Comfortable, all-natural cotton treaded sock that holds your downward-facing dog in stay by providing grip at key contact points.


Dye Ties Goddess 5 Hair Tie Collection ($12.95)
Hair ties that don’t pull or damage your hair. Set of 5, each with separate designs. All hand dyed and tied in the USA.


Real Beauty for a Cause - Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub  (4oz, $14.99)
Sugar cane granules infuses virgin coconut oil to give your skin deep hydration. Coconut Oil contains high levels of antioxidant to restore skin, leaving it silky soft. The lemon essential oil helps to rid the skin of toxins while brightening a dull complexion. 


Raw Revolution Organic Bar - Cranberry Almond Coconut ($2)
Made with organic, sprouted superfoods for dense nutritional content. Always vegan and made with minimal processing. Simply irresistible!


Coye Candle Co. - Blood  Orange Soy Wax Candle (deluxe sample, ~$10)
Made with 100% pure soy wax, this candle contains no pesticides or toxic materials; is biodegradable; is a renewable resource; burns slower and cooler than paraffin wax, creating a longer burning candle.


The first BuddhiBox contained 6 products, with a retail value of $66. I took advantage of the founders discount BuddhiBox was offering last month, and scored this box for $32.94, with shipping. Normally this box would cost Canadian customers $40.94, with shipping. If this is too pricy for you, BuddhiBox also offers a smaller box for $11.95 per month, plus shipping. It includes 2-3 product samples and coupons. For this box, I love the candle and scrub. Both smell divine. Citrus scents are my absolute favourite so these two products are perfect for me. The wipes are a treat too because I love wipes like this, but don't often get them in subscription boxes anymore. I received the same Great Soles socks in my Fall Edition FabFitFun VIP box, so these will be gifted to a yoga loving friend. The only product I don't like is the hair ties. I am not a fan of ribbon hair ties like this and am never pleased when they appear in one of my subscription boxes. They have been added to the gift pile. It's a great first box from BuddhiBox and really gives an indication of what is to come in future months. I'm sticking around for at least one more month to see what comes next.
