MaZi Classic Mini Turkish Towel My towel is in a bright spring green shade with white stripes ~ made from 100% premium quality Turkish cotton, this hand-loomed eco-friendly towel measures 24 x 43 inches (not so mini!) and can be used in place of microfiber towels. This is already pre-washed, so I find it to be very soft and will get softer each time you wash it and the cotton is responsibly sourced as well. This is a great little towel to use for my hair or to bring when I work out or just to have as a placemat too. RV $24.00 Promo Code: Save 15% off your first order at MaZi with promo code MAZILOVESME
Good Earth Emerald Green Tea Wow! A full 2 oz tin of green tea ~ this is harvested from the mountains of Southern China and has a sweet, smooth taste with notes of flowers and earth.

Bonus Item: Yogi Surprise Yoga Sequence Series Card: Spring Refresh: “Use this sequence to cleanse your mind, body and spirit while opening your heart and preparing for the season ahead.” Yogi Surprise always has a sequence card in every lifestyle box with poses and positions that reflect the theme of the box.
There were also some surprise items from past boxes in here. The card only stated one, but I received THREE!! I am really excited about one of them as I had wanted this fragrance but didn’t get it originally.
Pacifica Roll On Perfume Oil in Breath Taking This was from the November 2017 box and I had received Dream State, which was jasmine. I couldn’t use it but I REALLY wanted to get Breath Taking and this time around, I received it!! From my original unboxing… So there are several varieties in the AromaPower Micro-Batch oils this month. The AromaPower perfume oils are plant fragrances with crystal-infused aromatherapy oils. Now, I am not sure I buy into the infusing of crystals with perfume oils, but I have to say, this packaging is impressive. From the box to the glass roll on tube, there is a holographic effect with essential oils & plant extracts. It is made in small batches in Portland Oregon. Breath Taking is made with cardamom, vanilla, pepper and warm spices infused with rose quartz and I really smell the cardamom and vanilla in here. It is SO pretty too. This is vegan and cruelty free. 10 mL RV $14.00
Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Parfum (With Natural Essential Oils And Extracts)
Mindful Anti-Aging Eye Serum with Primrose & Lavender From July 2017 box, this is a vegan, gluten and paraben free eye serum that is a lightweight eye product. Original writeup from July: Serums are usually not as heavy as creams and are a good product for all ages ~ if you are younger, you can use just this ~ if you are older, like me, you use this first and then layer a cream over it. This is doesn’t really have a scent to it ~ it anything, it is a generic scent that is very light and unoffensive. It comes out of the pump very creamy and then as I spread it around, I can tell that this is very silky, smooth and lightweight ~ it absorbs quickly as well.
This contains some amazing moisturizing oils, which is why I am shocked at how weightless this serum is ~ jojoba, borage, evening primrose ~ and it has hydrating aloe and hyaluronic acid, along with calming, soothing and healing lavender. This is vegan and free from parabens, sulfate and gluten, and it is also cruelty free as well. 15 mL RV $49.00
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic Jojoba) Seed Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Butyrospermum Parkii (Organic Shea) Butter, Lavandula Angustifolia (Organic Lavender) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Organic White Tea) Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis (Organic Calendula) Flower Extract, Aspalathus Linearis (Organic Rooibos) Extract, Olea Europaea (Organic Olive) Oil, Daucus Carota (Carrot) Seed Oil, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Glycerin, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Rose Oil, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum cosDNA analysis

This month IS AMAZING in both the products and value. I really love the new items in it ~ the towel, room spray, tea, protein bar (which is already eaten), cleansing wipes (so refreshing!) and the keychain. The extras were amazing too ~ the perfume was a scent I wanted to try badly and candles are always welcome! The total value was $172.23 ~ $84.23 for the regular items + $88.00 for the surprise items!
