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.
Traditional Medicinals Relaxation Teas
Via Nature Sensitive Care Lotion
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?
