Zen. Pure zen. That's what I feel when I'm out in nature, sitting outside soaking up sunshine and staring out at the lake. I realize, though, that zen can come from many sources, like the Yuzen box full of goodies that showed up in the mailbox last month - all packaged up so beautifully...
Yuzen creators, Jen and Ted, wanted to bring something different to the market that is already full of sample boxes. Many are not offering exclusively eco-friendly, natural, or organic products, and they fancied the idea of curating products that embodied "the experience of relaxation, pause, and delight". You'll find beauty products, snacks, and other lifestyle items from about 6 companies.
A subscription box is $26, and you'll receive one every season (February, May, August, and November).
My favorite products from the box I received are the Sparitual nail lacquers, which are vegan, naturally colored, plus DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene-free. I also like the Red Flower candle that is made from natural vegetable-based candle wax and free of harsh preservatives and synthetic fragrances.
