May Conscious Box - Classic Box

Conscious box now offers 3 types of boxes. The classic, vegan and gluten free.  Each box contains a wide variety of items from food to beauty products to household goodies.  The price is $19.95 a month with shipping included. They also have a 3, 6 and 12 months plans. The 12 month plan is the only one that offers a discount.

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.

Gluten free: If you live a gluten free life the gluten free box would be 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

                     
Conscious Box - Classic Box


Contents of box w/approximate retail price listed:

(2) Dream Water in Snoozeberry. Value = $2.49  - I swear this works. I don't know how but I use it when I need to sleep but know I will have trouble falling asleep. works every time.

Earthpaste in Winterberry. Value = $7.99

Orgain for kids in vanilla Value = $2.69

MRM Relax-All with Phenibut Value = $0.83

Bija Lemon Ginger Echinacea. Value = $0.35

.17 oz. Healthy HooHoo gentle feminine wash. Value = $0.61 - very mild soap, worked well.

Ultima Replenisher lemonade packet. Value = $0.80

.09 oz. Herbamare original seasoning salt. Value = $0.09 - I added this to some ground bison and it added some flavor but I would've liked a little bit more/

3g Earthpaste for kids. Value = $?? I couldn't find any info on this. - This is missing the minty flavor which kids normally don't like. I didn't care for it.

2 Ecover Dishwasher Tabs. Value = $0.48

.9 oz. Surf Sweets Fruit Snacks. Value = $0.89 - I've had these before and they are really good. I like that it has real fruit.

.04 oz. Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen SPF30. Value = $0.16

Coupon for a free Zukay Kvass drink. Value = $3.99

The approximate value of my classic box is $21.37. I'm almost out of dishwasher tabs so I will give this a try. I hope it works. I actually like the surf sweet snacks a lot, they are very flavorful. I had to laugh at the hoohoo wash. I didn't realize you needed separate soap for girlie parts. I've used the dream water products before and I'm not sure if it works or if my mind of playing tricks on me. The orgain says it's for kids but I don't see any reason why I can't try it. The little sunscreen packet is cute, I might put it in my purse or travel bag.

Verdict: I subscribed to this on on an annual basis since I was able to get it half off.

    2. Well I decided to change to the gluten free box

  2. I called and canceled my gluten free box and classic box yesterday. The lady was actually super nice! She also told me that you can do a skip a month option but you have to call them to do it.. I don't like having to call in for everything; especially if you want to change your payment method!!

  4. Hey,

    Just two quick things
    1. There is a separate wash because soap can be to harsh and dry the sensitive skin there out or irritate it. Usually using water works fine.
    2. I was able to find the Earthpaste on Amazon and Vitacost. I can't tell if it is the same one from the picture. [Sorry] But it looks like its around $7.99 per a 4oz tube.

    1. I found the regular paste but I couldn't find anything on the kids version. The kids version wasn't very good, I'm glad it was only a small sample.
