In case you don't know, Buddhi Box is the Birchbox of yoga . I received a 3 month subscription. Here is my 3 month review.
Month 1: This was a little disappointing. The items included a magnet that said "get your buddhi on the mat," sandlewood incense, a lotus necklace, a small tin of shea butter, coffee, and a discount on downloadable meditations.
Here are my issues. I think these subscription boxes are cool because you get things that are hard to find in a store, and items you wouldn't necessarily buy for yourself. My problem with this box is that none of the products except the incense and shea butter are items that I would consider difficult to find or buy for myself. The items seemed to be more gimmicky things you would be given for free at a yoga festival, for example. I can buy coffee on every street corner in NYC. I don't need it mailed to me, even if it is fair trade and organic. My other big issue is the perceived "value" they placed on these items. $8 seems a little steep for a magnet. A discount on something you still need to buy, such as the meditation downloads, is not a product with a perceived value.
Month 2 (pictured above): So much better than month 1 !!! My opinion of BuddhiBox did a 180 after receiving my second box. This month's items included a vegan macaroon, laundry detergent for sweaty clothes specifically, hair & body butter, a spice blend packet, Headache Relief Rollerball, reusable snack pouches, and a 1 month membership to streaming yoga classes. The reusable snack pouches were my favorite item and have gotten a lot of use! They are dishwasher safe which helps too!

Month 3 was pretty good! Not as good as month 2 but I still prefer it over month 1! The most useful items for me are the Jiva Clothing Health Wicking Headband, People Towels reusable towel set, intention candle, and Thieves Blend Optimal Health Oil.
I can never have too many candles and headbands. In an effort to cut down on my paper towel use, the reusable towels from People Towels are great too!
Overall, I hate to be a negative Nancy, but for $30.95/month, the price is a little steep for the items I received. Though I have used a couple items in each box, there hasn't been a single product that I wanted to run out and buy once I ran out. BuddhiBox is a great gift idea for a yogi friend, but I would skip buying a subscription for myself.
