Yogi Suprise Subscription Box Review August

20170913_201237

You know I enjoy a good subscription box. So when I was invited to review Yogi Suprise, of course I jumped on board. It’s something about the ‘unknown’ when that box shows up on the mail,  it makes it feel like ion opening a present!

New to market,  Yogi Suprise is a monthly subscription box valued at over $70 a month according to their website. They only pass a $44.95 fee along to the customer for this monthly box (+ Free Shipping), and although the subscription auto-renews monthly once you sign up,  you have the option to cancel at any time..

What’s different about Yogi Suprise? It promotes a healthy lifestyle, with Yoga, charity,  and global well-being intertwined.

Not only do you get 6-7 full sized products to delve into, and monthly self healing Yoga sequences..  you also get a monthly chance to enter to win a retreat to a different island monthly. You can choose between the ‘Lifestyle or ‘Jewelry” boxes.  The one i received is the lifestyle box,  so it is a mix of goodies.

So without further delay,  I present to you,  my first  Yogi Suprise Lifestyle box.

Frosty VoxBox – What’s in the box?

20141213_093217


Here is another “What’s in the box” Influenster addition! It is my Frosty VoxBox I just received from Influenster. I love doing these “What’s in the Box” reviews because I know I am always curious when I see someone post something they received. I am one of those who like to watch unboxing videos and product reviews. I feel like getting a VoxBox is somewhat of an elite team, because it’s very rare that I actually get one. It’s like a flip of a coin. Anyway, I got this one..So here it is!

20141213_095315 Packed with goodness. Random goodness. Just the way I like it! Here is a car with the rundown;

20141213_095453 It might be hard to see in this picture, but here are the products up close and personal!


#1. McCormick Gourmet All Natural Thyme.

20141213_095622

I have to explain… I am SUPER excited to have gotten this. I have a cabinet FULL of seasonings of all types (literally.. I need an organizer of some sort..) There have got to be over 50… Funny enough, I do not… well DID NOT have Thyme in dry form! Crazy right? So this will fit right into my collection! Woohoo #Winning!


#2. Fruit Vines Bites – Strawberry

20141213_095607

This is going to go so fast in my house. My husband LOVES Fruit Vines, as does my 6 year old and myself. Not much to say about Fruit Vines except, if you haven’t had them yet, what are you waiting for?!


#3. Celestial Candy Cane Lane Tea Sample & Coupon

20141213_095521

I am a morning coffee drinker. I don’t usually have tea in my routine although I know it is good for you, especially in the Winter to warm you up. I think Candy Cane tea is a unique flavor and I am definitely going to be trying this sometime this week and reviewing it on Influensters site. If I like it, I’m excited that the 55 cent off coupon will DOUBLE to $1.10 off at my local grocery store!


#4. EcoTools Styler and Smoother brush

PhotoGrid_1418517014625

This is a SCORE!!!! This brush retails for $10 in drug stores. It is supposed to help your hair to dry when brushing through it, and also the shape and bristles are supposed to stop extra damage and split ends. I am really looking forward to adding this brush to my hair routine. Currently I have a Conair flat brush, but I feel like I need something new anyway…


#5. Rimmel London Eye Make-up Remover

20141213_095801

 I wear eye makeup everyday. I am not a big make-up EXCEPT for my mascara and eye liner. Funny enough, I don’t use eye make-up remover ever. I think I have some type somewhere under my bathroom cabinet, but I just don’t ever think to use it. I know this is a great brand, so I may give it a shot but I feel like my full face make-up remover sheets work fine for my eye make-up so far. Anyone ever use this – comment below?


#6. Scandaleyes Black Eye Liner by Rimmel London

20141213_095750

If there is one thing I’m known for, it’s eye liner. I LOVE trying all types. I am usually OK with any kind for my lower eyelid as far as pencils go, so I know I will use this. I just hope it’s as good as my Urban Decay 24/7. This is a FULL SIZE by the way. SCORE again! #StillWinning


#7. NYC Lipstick in”Sugar Plum”

 PhotoGrid_1418516918908

I am definitely not a big lipstick wearing person. I love my strawberry chapstick and cannot live without it. I think that contributes to the reason I do not wear lipstick.. My lips feel dehydrated LOL. Since I rarely every wear it, when I do try it on, I feel like my lips look weird, or too flashy regardless of the color. But that doesn’t mean I am not a lipstick hoarder. This color is cute, and it’ll stay captive in my collection until I decide to go through the lipstick phase, or give it away..


#8. Boots No.7 Advanced Serum

20141213_095505

Apparently this product is all the rage in the UK. It’s supposed to visibly reduce even fine lines. I feel like they were a little skimpy on the package they gave. I know it says it is $22-$29 for a full size of this. The problem is, it says within 2 weeks to notice the difference, and I doubt I’ll get 2 weeks out of this tiny trial packet. There is a $2 coupon attached, but $2 off $29 not sure I’m all for that being that I’m not sure it’ll even do what it says. I feel like I’ve been fortunate to try a ton of creams, expensive name brand items that all promise extreme results in a short time, and not one of them has delivered fully. I am young, and some laugh when I say it, but I KNOW I have fine lines. Even if they are “Smile” Lines, I have lines, and I don’t want them.. I’ll give this a shot, for as long as it’ll last, and if I do see any results that are worth it I promise to amend this and review it.

That’s all for my Frosty Voxbox this Dec 2014. Some really cool stuff that I am glad to try and review for Influenster on their site.
