Vegan Conscious Box Review May 2014

conscious box reviews

I signed up for a deal on the three-month subscription to Conscious Box and this is my last box of that subscription. I was most excited to get this box because the company made a huge announcement that they were going to send larger samples – something a lot of people (including myself) have been asking for!

The Cost: $19.95 a month

The Products: Conscious Box has three boxes from which you may choose: Classic, Gluten-free and Vegan. Each box is filled with earth-friendly samples for beauty, health, lifestyle and food.

The Concept: Conscious Box believes that sometimes living eco-friendly can be difficult with a lot of different marketing and research telling us different things. Their box is meant to cut the guess work out of finding healthy and earth-friendly products.

Other Reviews: You can read my past Conscious Box reviews here.

 Vita Coco Pure Coconut Water

I love coconut water, my daughter prefers their flavored coconut water, so I was able to enjoy it on my own.

GoGo Squeez in Apple 

This is one of my daughter’s favorite on-the-go snack so we were happy to see this.

Pura Vida Sprouted Flax

I love using ground flax as an egg replacer in my baking when I need a plant-based alternative. I know this will go to good use for me.

Mrs. May’s Trio Bars

This was tasty and flavorful, but it is was incredibly hard to chew (as in, almost break a tooth hard). I am thinking it may have been a bad batch.

MRM Vegan Bone Maximizer

Crystal Body Deodorant Towelettes

I love these towelettes because they are the perfect thing to toss in my purse for a quick refresher.

Flents Biodegradable Lens Wipes

This came at a great time because I lost my lens wipe for my camera, so this will tide me over until I can order a new one.

 Weleda Replenishing Shampoo & Conditioner

I’m never a fan of foil samples like this, but it will come in handy to wash my daughter’s hair on our beach trip.

BioBag 3 Gallon Bag 

At first I was really confused as to what I was meant to do with it. It is a bag for compost, or is it just starting it is compostable? – turns out it is the later.

San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee

This was a really nice strong brew, I will definitely buy more of these

Spatone PurAbsorb Iron

I received this in other boxes and I still have not used them. I am afraid of how it may taste!

 ECOVER Dishwasher Tablets

I’ve been searching for a new eco-friendly dishwashing tablet because the Honest Company tablets have not been working well for me. These did a really great job at getting my dishes clean and removing the cloudiness that was forming from the other tabs I was using.

CaCoCoSuperfood Drinking Chocolate

This stuff is phenomenal. I used it in a brownie recipe and it is beyond delicious.

Thoughts: The box is definitely changing and improving, but there are still a lot of small samples in the box which means is still not worth keeping a full-price subscription for me. I am definitely interested in seeing how the improvements progress and would certainly sign up again should another good deal for the box come up again. I loved a lot of the product samples (especially the chocolate!) so it is still a decent box to get to find a couple of new product samples. What did you think about the new Conscious Box?
