Yuzen Box Autumn 2015 Review



We’ve previously written about the reasons that Team TME chose Yuzen Box as the “Best Subscription Box of 2014” and Yuzen Box Autumn 2015 solidifies our opinion. We can tell you what’s in the box, and we will, but first we need to share the experience of receiving Yuzen’s Fall 2015 edition.

On the day that the Yuzen Autumn 2015 Box arrived, we’d been having a particularly horrid day. We grabbed the box with a bit of disinterest, but curiosity got the best of us and we opened it. Stunningly wrapped in (reusable) pink tissue paper with Yuzen’s signature piece of (reusable) Japanese Yuzen paper across the front, we began to smile. And in spite of ourselves, a feeling of calm began to wash over. This is the feeling that you get when you receive a Yuzen Box! 



Yuzen Box Autumn 2015:

  • Lavender Organza Drawstring Bag (Reusable)
  • Description Card With “Why We Chose It” and Discount Codes
  • Africa Organics Marula Conditioner
  • COWGIRL Extreme Antioxidant Serum
  • ECO LIPS Organic Lip Scrub
  • GLEE Natural Sugar-Free Chewing Gum in Refresh-Mint
  • Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Body Wash
  • Red Flower Lymphatic Phytopower Sea Cleaner and Masque
  • Red Flower Artic Berry Cloud Milk Cream

It’s fairly often for those that receive subscription boxes to dislike, or feel ambivalent about, at least one item in the box. In our experience, it’s never happened with a Yuzen Box. Each item with the Yuzen Autumn Box was simply delightful! Yuzen Boxes are available quarterly ($33/quarter) and the brand also offers anytime gifting.

As you can see each box includes luxury eco-conscious beauty, snack, and lifestyle items that are carefully curated directly by the owners - Jen and Ted. Along the lines of eco-conscious, Yuzen began using less packaging this summer … Thank You Yuzen. As for Yuzen’s quarterly subscription service that can be just for you, but if you’re looking for something lovely and unique as a gift you’ll need not look any further then Yuzen’s Gift Box ($36).

Yuzen Summer 2015 Subscription Box and Gift Box Review



There’s a reason why TME chose Yuzen as the “Best Subscription Box of 2014” and receiving the brand’s latest offerings confirms that status. At this point, Team TME has lost count of the amount of boxes that we’ve received from Yuzen, but what we haven’t lost is our memory for the wonderfulness of each one.

Yuzen is a quarterly subscription box ($33/quarter), that also offers anytime gifting. Each box includes luxury eco-conscious beauty, snack, and lifestyle items that are carefully curated directly by the owners - Jen and Ted. Along the lines of eco-conscious, Yuzen has recently changed up its packaging for the Summer 2015 Yuzen Box.

All Yuzen boxes contain a beautiful organza bag, which houses the products, and for previous boxes Yuzen would place the organza bag inside a small box and then that box inside a shipping box. The brand has 86’d the smaller box in order to help reduce its carbon footprint! No quality lost here … just a better way to operate! As usual, the Yuzen Summer 2015 Subscription Box was beautifully packaged and contained items that we couldn’t wait to try.



Yuzen Summer 2015 Subscription Box:

  • Description Card With “Why We Chose It” and Discount Codes
  • Aromaflage Botanical Fragrance & Insect Repellant
  • Aromafloria Muscle Soak Ocean Mineral Bath Salts
  • Hugo Naturals Vanilla and Sweet Orange Shower Gel
  • Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Firming and Tightening Serum
  • Lasting Smiles Organic Peppermint Creme Lip Balm
  • Shea Moisture Zanzibar Marine Complex Replenish & Rejuvenate Hand Cream
  • Spa Ritual Nail Lacquer
  • Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen
  • Torie & Howard Meyer Lemon & Raspberry Organic Hard Candy




Yuzen Gifting Box:

Yuzen’s quarterly box can be just for you – you deserves it, but if you’re looking for something lovely and unique as a gift you’ll need not look any further then Yuzen’s Gift Box ($36). The quality is just as outstanding as Yuzen’s Subscription Box and just a lovely with an organza bag and Japanese Yuzen paper.

Yuzen Gifting Box 2015 Includes:
  • Description Card With “Why We Chose It”
  • Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub
  • Cowgirl Extreme C Serum
  • Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream
  • Salus Shower Bomb
  • Shecha Naturals Pink Dragonfruit Mints
  • Sparitual Cuti-Cocktail Pen & Pusher
  • Sranrom Urban Wellness Calm Down Hand Cream
  • Zents Mandarin Soap

Best Subscription Box of 2014




In January 2013, TME published “Battle of The Beauty Boxes: Round One,” with the aim of informing our readers about which beauty/lifestyle subscription box offered what. The market of monthly subscription box services exploded and this led us to publish “Battleof The Beauty Boxes: Round Two” -- a mere six months later. Since our initial “Battle,” the market of subscription box services continues to grow and we’ve seen our fair share of the good, the bad, and the “What were they thinking”?

Sure we could have done “Round 3,” but with all that we’ve witnessed it was time to give a huge shout out to the subscription services that continuously offer superiorly curated boxes. While there can only be one “Best Subscription Box,” we present the beauty and lifestyle boxes that are superior and deserving of acknowledgment. So, just who are the brands and which one took the Best Subscription Box of 2014? There were a total of 24 subscription services that threw their hat into the ring, but we’ve chosen the best of the best and here they are!


Most Improved Beauty Box - Beauty Army ($12/month – Shipping Included). In 2013, Beauty Army was a less then thrilling experience. With a revamped website (launched in January 2014), navigating the site to fill out your personal beauty profile and choose your own samples is a fun experience. Included in our Beauty Army box were seven real-sized samples that easily exceeded the $12 subscription price. Good Job Beauty Army!


Best Lifestyle Box PopSugar Must Have ($35/month – Shipping Included) Many of you may be familiar with PopSugar.com, a leading online source of women’s lifestyle information and a favorite site here at TME. Every Must Have box is expertly, and lovingly, curated by the PopSugar editors, which guarantees that you are going to be presented with top-notch lifestyle products. Proving that PopSugar Must Have truly is a superior lifestyle box with their fingers on the pulse of lifestyle -- the brand has launched Must Have boxes for specific life milestones such as bridal and baby!


Best Specialty Box - Escape Monthly ($49.95/month - Shipping Included) is an essential for anyone who, like us, loves to travel and learn about other places. Gigi, an extensive world traveler, was blown away by the accuracy of information and the stellar curation of the Escape Monthly box. Items included in each box range from informative travel books to cuisine and well exceed the monthly subscription price. Escape Monthly is perfect for the adventure bound … even if the adventure is from your living room.


Best Beauty BoxGLOSSYBOX ($21/month - Shipping Included) We have watched this brand for over three years and had the pleasure of interviewing GLOSSYBOX CEO, Charles von Abercron. From the industry insider perspective, we have witnessed many changes within this company … some left us believing that all hope was lost for this brand … but, with a major rebound GLOSSYBOX is back on top delivering beautifully and thoughtfully curated beauty boxes that leave us doing the “happy dance” upon the box’s monthly arrival!


Drum roll … please … Yuzen is THE Best Subscription Box 2014! 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/qurter – Shipping Included) 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.

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".

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 us -- 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 … priceless in our book!

Three Easy Ways To Help You Relax




We all have times throughout our lives when stress can become almost overwhelming and relaxation feels unattainable. Perhaps our ability to take time for ourselves, to focus upon our well-being and to truly unwind, is a casualty of our society. It seems like everyone is so busy trying to keep up with the fast pace of what our society has become, that we’re too busy to enjoy life itself. Read on for tips and products that are designed to help you achieve relaxation.

Sleep and Rest – Getting a good night’s sleep isn’t always as easy as it should be. Even with the best intentions, like going to bed earlier than usual and catching 8 hours of sleep, doesn’t necessarily equate to a restful night’s sleep. Your bedroom needs to be a haven and creating a relaxing environment isn’t that difficult. Turn off the television and turn on Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds ($129.99) from Brookstone.

Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds features:
  • 12 Doctor Developed Sleep Sounds – Ocean Surf, Thunderstorm, Rain, Unwind, White Noise, Celestial, Summer Night, Brown Noise, Stream, Focus, Body Sync (TME Favorite) and White Rain.
  • Continuous play or 30-, 60- or 90-minute sleep timer
  • Backlit dual alarm clock with five brightness levels (including off)
  • For daytime usage, Pairs wirelessly with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet or other device
  • Headphone jack and 3.5mm aux-in jack
  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery
  • Includes USB charging cable, wall adapter, travel pouch

Scents and Aromatherapy – There is a well-documented tie between our olfactory sense memory and our brain, as well as about 10,000 years of aromatherapy practice. Certain scents invigorated our brains and certain essential oils relax our bodies and minds. Colorado Aromatics ($8) offers a line of multi-purpose organic Hydrating Toner Distillates that serve as a skin booster, have aromatherapy properties, and can even be used as room spray to create a relaxing environment in your bedroom or office. 



Spa Day At Home – Take a “Spa Day” at home. Yes, we all love a day at the spa but pampering yourself at home is something that you should integrate into your life. One of my favorite subscription box services is Yuzen. The reason being is that Yuzen ($33) sends out boxes quarterly and these boxes are exquisitely curated with products that are designed to help you relax. Another product that I’m placing in the “Spa” and must-have category is Brookstone’s Heated Aqua-Jet Foot Spa ($159.99). If you’re familiar with reflexology, another holistic practice with about 10,000 years behind it, you know that our feet have a lot of pressure points that can be manipulated to help us to achieve relation and an overall sense of well-being. Brookstone’s Heated Aqua-Jet Foot Spa is self-heating, has adjustable hydro jets and comes with a removable pumice stone. The HeatedAqua-Jet Foot Spa is the ultimate tool for an at home pedicure, as well as a daily tool to utilize in your relaxation regimen.

For your convenience, all products have been hyperlinked and stay tuned for a lot more about relaxation and wellness … yes, The Makeup Examiner is on a mission!

Yuzen Lifestyle Subscription Box: Product Review



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.
