unboxing: BuddhiBox Mini November 2014

BuddhiBox is a brand new subscription service that sent out their first boxes filled with yoga-inspired items this month. They have a regular size box option and a mini box option. Out of curiosity, I ordered both, which resulted in quite the mix up! See, yesterday I received a box that contained two of the mini version, but no regular box. I e-mailed customer service, who promptly replied, apologized and explained that somewhere, somehow my regular subscription was refunded and cancelled. They promised to send out my regular box this Friday, free of charge, and reinstate my subscription. I'm still kind of confused as to why I received two of the mini box when I only paid for one, but I understood mistakes happen and am just glad they are being apologetic and gracious in their attempts to fix it!

Mini Box
November 2014
For the sake of keeping this post any more confusing than my above explanation of my situation, I am only posting pictures of ONE of my mini boxes. I will post an unboxing of my regular box when it arrives!

Cost: $11.95 + free U.S S&H

My box shipped on November 10th via USPS Priority 2-Day Mail and arrived yesterday. I waited until today to post an unboxing since I wanted to hear from customer service first.

I am digging the burlap organza bag here! I can reuse that :).

My box included some goodies and a bunch of coupons!

The Bar Shop Joint and Muscle Relief Cream Amount not indicated, I think it is 2 oz which would have a value of $3.75
Jo-Sha Essential Oil Wipe Single peppermint wipe value $0.75

Another reason I waited to post this unboxing is because I had noo clue what the lip balm tube was; there is no label on it whatsoever and no info card letting me know what it is. I asked customer support who gave me the link. Anyway! The cream sounds interesting, with arnica and jalapeño as ingredients, and I just got some Jo-Sha wipes from another box and thought they were great. I'm happy to have another!

This bar was delicious and the sticker is a neat thing to include with it! It's now stuck to my algebra notebook :)!

BuddhiBox included a recipe card for some delicious-looking raw mint chocolate Nanaimo bars and a cute little card detailing how to get into the Downward Facing Dog yoga position.

And now to the coupons!
● 15% off at InYo. They make some lovely yoga-wear.
● A couple if different codes to Great Soles: 25% off entire purchase, Buy 2 Get 1 Free or Buy 3 Get 2 Free. I love Great Soles socks so will most likely use this!
● 15% off at The Bar Shop. The cream in this box is made by these guys.
● 20% off at Soulie. Beautiful, handmade yoga gear, yes please!
● $50 off a 2, 3 or 4 day pass to the Northwest Yoga Conference in March. Too bad I don't live anywhere Seattle, WA; I would love to go :(!

With $9.38 worth of actual items, the rest of the value of this box is due to the coupons, which I was aware of before purchasing. I may or may not use these coupons, but do appreciate the opportunity. This was a nice little taste of what BuddhiBox has to offer and now I just have to wait patiently for my regular box to arrive!
