What I love about the monthly boxes is that they're full sized items worth way more than the monthly price of a box. Think of it as Birchbox for Yogis - without the tiny sample-sized products. I've been using these products for about a month now, so here are my thoughts on each - some missed the mark for me - and where you can buy them.
Honestly, I went online to Yogi Surprise to maybe sign up, but when I saw these chakra healing stones were a bonus item in the March box, well... add to cart. This is the perfect way for me to start to learn about our 7 chakras and how to stay balanced.
Soul Flower's eco friendly headbands are meant to calm your mind and are made in the USA from 50% organic cotton and 50% plastic beverage bottles. It's so soft and doesn't give me a headache like most headbands. I like to fold it in half and wear it that way for yoga. They have so many cute designs but the mandala is definitely my favorite!
I love Icy Hot. Like.. always carrying it with me (thank goodness for the roller ball stick) and I have a library of different size patches, too. Sorry to everyone for smelling like Icy Hot all. the. time. When I saw this Moon Valley muscle rub, I was intrigued but still used Icy Hot for a while because it's the best. When I finally decided to try this rub on my foot, I wasn't impressed. It smells great, but it's kind of oily and needs to be rubbed in (obvi). The directions say you can put a hot compress on it for even more effect but I didn't feel any difference. There was no hot/cold sensation like Icy Hot, so I'm just gonna stick to my favorite muscle therapy.
I always struggle with dry skin so I was really happy to get this body butter made of organic ingredients. After reading more about the brand, it was started by an OB/GYN and mother of five girls who didn't want to treat her daughter's severe eczema with steroid creams. I also have issues with eczema and couldn't wait to give this a try.
Since my skin is sensitive, I have to be careful what I put on my face. Even masks scare me but I wanted to try this coconut milk one. I crossed my fingers in hopes my skin wouldn't freak out and was so happy to see my skin responded well. It felt so incredibly soft and hydrated so it's now my new favorite weekend ritual! One thing I noticed though: the mask goes on almost clear so it's hard to tell where you put it. No joke, it looks like you have nothing on your face! I could totally see myself forgetting I have it on and leave the house, lol!
I've been wanting to find some healthy snacks and I love broccoli so I figured I'd probably like these broccoli bites. Wrong! They definitely have a broccoli + ranch taste but I ate two and got a little grossed out. Maybe because I haven't had ranch dressing in a long time? Can't pinpoint exactly why I'm not a fan, but let's not force it, okay?
If I do have any cravings, it's for chocolate and these truffles are the perfect treat. I think they're very rich, so I'll usually just eat half of one to satisfy my sweet tooth. The small container is even perfect to keep at your desk or throw in your travel bag.
