Greener, Better, Safer Products

A Gift for YOU! Yuzen Box Giveaway


Yuzen Box Giveaway Winter 2014

Regular Mindful Momma readers know that one of my favorite types of gifts to give are luxurious, eco-friendly beauty and personal care products. For one thing, it’s something that people don’t often splurge on for themselves and also they are gifts that actually get used instead of collecting dust on a shelf. I think that’s a total WIN-WIN, don’t you?

Yuzen is always at the top of my gifting list. Owners Jen and Ted put together the perfect combination of special products for face and body – plus they always throw in a little sweet treat too! You can gift one box at a time or sign up for a gift subscription of 3 seasonal boxes throughout the year.

Winter Subscription Box

Here’s a peek at what’s inside the latest subscription box:

Acure – Brightening Facial Scrub (I’m a huge fan of Acure and this product is FAB!)

Cowgirl – Extreme C Serum (wow – good stuff!)

Essence of Vali – Sleep Bedtime Ritual (better than pillow talk)

Cocomels – Chocolate Covered Caramels with Sea Salt (how can you go wrong?)

Jurlique – Herbal Recovery Eye Cream (great brand that’s made my top products list more than once)

Salus – Shower Bombs (love this idea – for those of us who don’t have time for a bath)

Zents – Mandarin Soap (smells divine!)


You’ve been busy buying gifts for everyone else. Now it’s time to think about YOU! Enter to win a Yuzen Box of your very own below. The giveaway will be open through Saturday, December 20th. Winner must have a U.S. shipping address. Good luck!

Maybe it's only when you've been extra good. I'm really not sure. All I know is that it's happened once or twice at our house over the years. Has this happened at your … [Continue reading]

Greener, Safer, Better Gifts for Dudes

Greener, Safer, Better Gifts for Dudes

Guys can be so hard to buy for right? When they have a hobby, they usually buy whatever they need for themselves. Beyond that, they don't often speak up about what they might want. So you end up winging it based on what you think they like and might actually use. On that note, I usually go for practical gifts - but things that are a … [Continue reading]
