October Yogi Surprise – the perfect birthday treat!

October is the best month ever, not only is it Halloween and the leaves start to change colour, but also IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! What better way to celebrate than with a Yogi Surprise box – one of the best joys to receive in the mail. Every time you open one of these little purple boxes, you are immediately met with a beautiful lavender scent. I swear they spray their boxes or something, because they smell amazing when they arrive ūüėõ

I immediately see one of my favourtie things from the Yogi Surprise box, the flow card! LOVE these little cards of yogi knowledge! Flows are hard for me to come up with outside of the classroom, so I have been collecting these and take a look every now and then for some inspiration.

Next came a clear bottle from Buddha Teas called Matcha Now. This looked like regular water until I noticed there was a mechanism to release the matcha into the bottle. SO COOL!! I’m not crazy on matcha, but this looks so intriguing I am going to have to try it.

I am a big fan of skincare products and always like trying new things. The Yogi Surprise box always seems to have an assortment of creams or balms to use, so I can always expect some exciting goodies to try! For super dry skin there is the Good Medicine Lab balm – which I love applying to knees and elbows. The Revive lip balm from Eco Lips also looks like a clear essential product for the upcoming cold weather. It is 100% organic and it will be living in my bag this winter.

The manduka logo stood out to me next, and I absolutely love this brand and know they have amazing quality products, I was sure to love anything this was going to be! It was a yoga mat strap, which coincidentally I don’t have for my Manduka Pro yoga mat! HOW PERFECT WAS THAT?!?! It is a grey strap, and it looks so comfortable to wear, especially since my mat is super thick and I couldn’t figure out which strap would work best with it.

The Namaste Ninja by Happy Spritz is extraordinary Рthis product will clear your mind + clean your mat. It uses an aromatherapy blend of organic tea tree essential oil as one of the main ingredients which is known for its antimicrobial + anti-fungal properties, perfect for post workout. The design is really lovely too.

Best for last of course, the Pure Botanica bath Infusion Rose Retreat bath salts. The second I saw these in the box I knew it was going to be an amazing birthday.¬†Ros√© Retreat¬†Botanic Bath Infusion combines organic bath salts with calming rose and geranium essential oils. I think this might have been what made this Yogi Surprise box especially smelly this month. But I’m not complaining!

The Seaweed Bath Co bath powder from Yogi Surprise

I was super excited to open my Yogi Surprise box this month, it’s like getting a box of toys every single time! This time I was happy to find a bath powder from¬†The Seaweed Bath Co¬†because I LOVE taking baths and especially after a long day at work or doing yoga, a bath can really help me relax and let go.

Doesn’t it look so cool!? I had to open it immediately and got a huge whiff of seaweed so if that’s your thing then this is for you. I’m not as huge of a fan of seaweed as my boyfriend but the smell subsided and it just smelled like the ocean, and I love the ocean. I am always trying new bath items like salts, powders and bombs. I believe changing it up a bit helps the skin and you get to experience something new every time which is fun!

Close up of Seaweed Bath Co Powder

You can see it looks like little crystals and is a lovely seaweed green. They select only the best hand-harvested, brown seaweed and enhance it with nourishing ingredients like Argan Oil which is revered worldwide for its moisturizing and soothing properties; it naturally comforts your skin.

It is also rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, kukui oil, linoleic and linolenic acids – a potent natural moisturizer that helps soothe your irritated skin.

There is a slight scent of citrus that releases when you add it to the bath, but the seaweed smell still trumps that!

I had to do some bath tub yoga with my YogiSurprise Box and Seaweed bath powder, of course!

A couple of extra notes about Seaweed Bath Co, they are¬†non-GMO verified. Vegan.¬†Never tested on animals. ūüėÄ

I enjoyed this bath, it was calming and made me feel under the sea at the Caribbean!!  And I was so happy I got to try it from my April Yogi Surprise box!
