BuddhiBox Review - July 2015 - Eco-Lifestyle Subscription Box + PROMO CODES

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

BuddhiBox is a 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.

If $41 US per month is too much for you, BuddhiBox also offers a mini version. For only $11.95 per month, plus shipping, you can get 2-3 product samples and coupons. This review is for a regular box.

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 a portion of sales goes to support The One Love Movement, an organization that seeks to create a better future for at-risk & homeless youth populations locally & globally by inspiring people to get involved & give back.

The yoga card for this month is Boat Pose (Navasana) and the recipe is for Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies. I may have to try this one!

First Look

October Fields Nag Champa Candle Tin (4oz, $7)
I'd never heard of nag champa before receiving this candle. According to Wikipedia it's "an Indian fragrance containing frangipani and sandalwood."

Gypsy Soul Organics Aromatherapy Spray in "Freak of Nature" (2oz, $10)
This is an essential oil blend of fir needle, bergamot, clove, cassia root, eucalyptus, cedarwood, lavadin, and peppermint. I love the name of the scent!

Erin's Faces Firming Eye Gel (0.25oz full size, $25)
This eye gel has aloe to soothe and witch hazel to de-puff. I love the stainless steel roller-ball applicator!

October Fields Organic Yogi Balm for Lips ($3.95)
This matte finish vegan lip balm is made with sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, pumpkin seed oil, and cocoa butter. It's also fragrance free and has no sweeteners or flavors. 

Auromere Ayurvedic Massage Oil (10ml single use, $1.50)
This is a cold-pressed sesame oil infused with 25 potent Ayurvedic herbs, botanical extracts, oils and minerals prescribed for their deep-penetrating, beneficial action for therapeutic massage and skin preservation. I wish I could smell it before use though.

Bear's Beauty 22% Sun Lovers Cream (25ml, $10)
This is a homemade sunscreen and after sun lotion in one. It contains zinc so it provides physical sun protection, but it's also nourishing and 100% natural. I'm very fair skinned so sunscreen is a must, everyday, no matter what time of the year. I'm happy to try this tiny jar, but I wouldn't buy it again. For the amount of sunscreen I go through, it would cost me a small fortune. For full body coverage (a day at the beach) this jar would last one day. For just chest and arms (average day) I might get two to three days out of it.

Skinny Matcha Om Blend ($49.95)
The box seemed a little on the light side this month and for good reason. One of the main products did  not arrive to BuddhiBox HQ in time for shipment, so it will be out direct from the vendor once their stock arrives. I'm looking forward to trying it out. I love iced matcha lattes, and I might even try to make some coconut milk match ice cream!

 The July BuddhiBox contained seven products, with a retail value of $107.40. It's an amazing value this month. It's a bummer that one item will be coming later, but I think it's worth the wait. I'm most interested in the sun cream and eye gel. I like that this month was all about beauty and relaxation. I will get use out of everything!
