It's about that time again! The summer box starts shipping in May! Hopefully the brands page will be updated soon.

I think so! It's not one of the high value boxes, but I feel like it's worth what I pay for it. Plus I'm always looking for more natural and eco friendly items. I've found a few new favorites! The presentation is great and it feels like a smaller mom and pop type company, which makes me feel more inclined to pay the $33 (I think it's $33) for. It's definitely unique!

I just realized that we should be getting the Summer box soon.  I see I'm not the only person thinking about it.  Can't wait!

Have any of you tried Saffron Rouge? I subscribed to that last month since I thought it might be a better value than Yuzen, but the Yuzen packaging looks so pretty! I'm contemplating switching to Yuzen from Saffron Rouge (also $25/month can get very expensive).

I have both.

 

Yuzen is very pretty and I love it, but I also love Saffron Rouge as well.  I like getting a monthly box.

Yuzen was originally a monthly sub, but the owners decided it worked better quarterly. I think they felt they could curate better more original items if they weren't looking for items to fill a box monthly. I love the quarterly timing.  I can enjoy the products without feeling overwhelmed.

I just got my first Saffron Rouge and I was very happy with it!  I'm debating Yuzen and I know they release what's in the box (its not a surprise) which makes it easy to decide if I want it or not.  I passed on the Spring one but I'm hoping Summer will be so good I can't resist :)

Oh, I am subbing for that!  I'm allergic to lavender but those will make GREAT stocking stuffers for my MIL.

 

I want the soap and the lash serum and the insect repellent and the skin toner and I'm sure I'll love mints :D

I just realized - the brand that makes the seaweed toner is the same brand that made the wonderful charcoal cleanser in the birchbox limited edition free for all box. 

 

I love that cleanser and plan to purchase a full size when I finish it.  Oh...now I am excited for this box!!  Can't wait to try out that toner

 

I looked up that insect repellant - omg - 65 bucks for 50ml.  They do consider it more than just an insect repellant!! lol

 

I hope we get a nice size of it - maybe the purse size version - which is 30.00?  I would hate to get a tiny perfume like sample of an insect repellant!!  It is a beautiful bottle (the 65.00 one - "Our custom 50ml bottles are made from the finest glass in the world, designed in the south of France, and are decorated with precious 24K gold" HAHAHAHA)

 

I am cracking up here...

Wow. This sounds fantastic... except I'm just starting a May no-buy. But this is just so so tempting. How long are these usually available to sub for?

THIS IS EXCITING!!! I absolutely love that Hugo soap, it is currently in my shower! I buy it frequently at Ulta. I am very sensitive to bar soaps but it isn't harsh at all and doesn't make me itchy like most soaps do. Plus is smells heavenly!

 

I have also been searching the interwebs lately for a brow serum!! My brows will NOT grow. Now I don't have to buy one!!

 

Also looking forward to the seaweed toner - I am just about out of both my Mario Badescu and Body Shop toners. THANKS @@biancardi for posting the contents!

I'm so interested in the bugspray! It sounds like the type of scent I like, and it's on Opensky/Abesmarket, which both regularly have 20-30% off sales.  If I like it as a perfume, then I can totally see myself buying it!

that is good to know, as that seems so pricey

 

the lash enhancer is on amazon at a much lower price too!

Mine shipped today!!  I'm also VERY interested in that insect repellent!  I'm out in my garden a lot and it'd be nice if the gnats and things stayed away!  I'm horribly allergic to mosquitos and while it probably won't protect me against those, maybe it'll cover up the smell of the real stuff!
