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.
I didn't see any spoilers this month! That was a nice change from the November box, the entire contents of which were released long before I even received the box.
This month, along with the product card, we received a recipe for H2O Nutrition Holiday Detox Salad (man, do I ever need this right now!), and a yoga pose card featuring Marichyasana III, aka Marichi's Pose.
Muuyu Live Interactive Yoga (2 free classes)
Muuyu is a site that live-streams yoga classes. You pick a class, pay, and then just login at the right time. You do not need to enter a credit card to redeem this offer. I did note though, that upon signing up I was given 1 free class, and then when I entered the promo code for BuddhiBox, I only received 1 additional free class, rather than the 2 free classes listed on the card. There aren't a lot of classes available at the moment... only two this entire week. Prices range from $7 to $12.

My December BuddhiBox contained seven products, with an estimated retail value of $42.22 US (more if you count the $19 you could save with the Muuyu Yogo promo code). I paid $32.94 US for this box, including shipping. The normal monthly price for Canadians is $40.94 with shipping. This one isn't much of a value box, but I love all the products included. The cookie cutter is cute and fun, and I'm glad I received the Warrior II pose. The eye pillow is lovely and it will be gifted to my mother. She is allergic to most pain killers so this will be good for her when she has headaches. The strap mat is not something I would have thought to buy, but it's actually useful for a lot of things, not just a yoga mat! The Amazing Grass shaker is great. I use it to take my daily smoothie to work. It's leak proof and a good size. I didn't really like the Amazing Meal supplements. I found them too gritty and chalky, even when I mixed it up and left it to sit for a while. I noticed that some people received Green Superfood samples as well, but I only received the two Amazing Meal packets. The Muuyu site seems like a good concept, but with so few classes available and limited times, it's probably not something I will get to use. Overall I really enjoyed this box, but I feel like the value was lacking a little this month.
BuddhiBox is currently offering an end of year promo code. You can save $3 off the monthly cost of the box, for the life of your subscription. Choose the month to month option then enter "peaceful" at checkout.
