November Vegan Conscious Box

Conscious box vegan is pretty much the same as the regular conscious box except everything in the box is vegan.  They contain a wide variety of items from food to beauty products to household goodies.  The price is $12 a month plus $7.95 shipping which makes is $19.95 a month.  They also have a 3 month plan for $56.85 ($18.95 a box) or a 6 month plan for $111.70 (18.61 a box). Honestly the shipping cost is what always prevented me from signing up.  I think it's a mind trick thing because if they said $19.95 a month with free shipping that sounds better than $12 and shipping is $8 which is 2/3 the cost of the box.

I happen to find a deal through Plum District which is website that offers deals on various products.  It's much like Groupon and Living Social. It's completely free to sign up and they send you emails announcing the newest deal they are offering.  I've purchased several deals through Plum District and would highly recommend signing up! The deal was $20 for 3 months of their new vegan conscious box plus $7.95 shipping per box.  Basically I paid $43.85 for 3 months making it $14.62 a box and saved $16.  I figured for $15 it was worth trying.

The good:

Variety: You get a wide variety of items and the box was packed!

Vegan: If your vegan the vegan box is great for you.

The not so good:

The price: It's on the high side for subscription boxes but I would consider this a specialty box for sure.

Skip: Currently no option to skip a month

Vegan goodies!

Contents of box w/retail price listed:

Cuppow lid for turning canning jars into a travel mug.  Value = $7.95

1 packet/serving Sun Warrior warrior blend vanilla flavor protein powder. Value = $1.17 (23 servings $26.95)

1 oz. packet Ojio Raw Organic Hemp Seeds. Value = $2.49 (2 oz. $4.98)

4 oz. bottle Safonique Lavender Sea Laundry Detergent. Value = $0.48 (50 oz bottle $5.97)

2 oz. package Rock in Green Laundry Detergent in classic rock (enough for 2 loads in a top loading machine and 4 loads in an HE machine). Value = $0.85

1 Surthrival Bamboo Toothbrush. Value = $5.49

.5 oz. jar Yume lip and body treatment in lavender lemon Value = $3.74 (4oz. $29.95)

.5 oz. bottle Bioray Loving Energy Tonic. (I'm guessing on the size because it wasn't marked and it was only about 3/4 full. Value = $9.00 (2 oz. $36.00)

1 small Sacred Chocolate dairy free heart. Full size is 1.44 oz. $8.40. This was too tiny to measure for value.

The value of my vegan conscious box is $35.77.   To recap the regular price of this box is $19.95.  This is the third box I've received and by far it's had the best value.  I thought the laundry detergent was cool and the boyfriend said he likes the licorice and ginger tea.  I'm not sure what I will use the canning jar to travel mug lid but I guess it's a cool idea.  I'm super excited to try the bamboo toothbrush, I've been wanting one for awhile but never bought one. 

Verdict: This is a great little box if your vegan or want vegan products.
