The market for monthly subscription boxes has exploded, to say the least, and with a plethora of beauty/lifestyle boxes to choose from, consumers can easily become overwhelmed. I have personally experienced and reviewed many subscription box services, and have concluded that there exists a box for every person. With that said, I wanted to share my personal favorite — Yuzen.
With boxes arriving quarterly, Yuzen’s tagline of “Sending you a little Zen” reminds us to stop and take time for ourselves. Yuzen Boxes ($33) arrive each season — winter, spring, summer, and fall — and include high-end luxurious beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products that are carefully selected by Jen and Ted Ning, the owners of Yuzen. In conjunction with a quarterly subscription, Yuzen offers limited-edition holiday boxes, such as one for upcoming Mother’s Day, that you can gift.
The Ning’s shared, “When making selections for each Yuzen box, we always look to quality, mission, and integrity before we put it to our Yuzen test — evaluating its performance, experiencing the benefits first hand, and then sharing our favorites with others”.
Yuzen Boxes are available for both men and women, each appropriately curated by gender. So what can you expect when receiving one of these boxes? To start, Yuzen is artfully packaged, making a perfect gift for any person — especially the “hard-to-buy-for” in your life. As part of the packaging, the brand encloses a strip of authentic Japanese Yuzen paper, which can be used as a bookmark, for origami making, or for any paper crafts.
Inside the box, one will find a card with detailed information about each product and an explanation as to why it was chosen, a mix of nine full-sized and sample size products, and discount codes for each product. Plus the products are encased in a lovely reusable mesh drawstring bag. There isn’t an aspect of Yuzen that hasn’t impressed me. From the Ning’s philosophy of “pampering oneself,” to the brilliantly executed packaging and, of course, the high quality, natural, organic products that are contained within. The $33 price includes shipping and product value is approximately $100, unless you count the needful pampering encouraged by Yuzen … that is priceless in my book.
