August 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.

Information: They now include an information card with product details on it.

Points: You can earn points for rating products. The points earn you discounts should you want to purchase something you like.

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.
  



                     
                                                     Conscious Box - Classic Box

Contents of box w/approximate retail price: 

(2) Nordic Naturals Tutti Fruitti Omega 3 jelly chews. Value = $0.99/ea. - These are really odd. They are opaque in color and really soft. It was strange but I really liked it. 

(2) Allimex garlic capsules. Value = $1.00/ea.



(2) Happy Tots Super Toddler Bars in chocolate sunbutter. Value = $1.10/ea. - I know this says it's for tots but I ate it anyway. I thought it was really good. The bar itself was really soft and while it didn't have tons of flavor it had enough to keep me satisfied.

1 pkt. Country Choice Oatmeal. Value = $0.46

Sneakz Chocolate Milkshake. Value = $2.00 - I've had this before. It's pretty good but I could taste a hint of veggies. Not enough that a kid would notice and I would drink it again. 

(2) MRM Digest-All Vegetarian Capsules. Value = $0.25/ea.


.14 oz. Herbal Zap Immune Support drink mix. Value = $0.92

1 pkt. Ultima Replenisher Lemonade. Value = $0.80

1 Stash organic Lavender Tulsi tea bag. Value = $0.23

1.05 oz. Barbara's Snackimals cinnamon crunch cereal. Value = $0.62 - I ate this right out of the bag like a snack. Very tasty. 

12.5g MRM Veggie Protein drink mix in chocolate Value = $0.66

8g Amazing Greens Raw Reserve berry flavor. Value = $1.33

ACTZ Glycerin soap banana scented. Value = $??

The approximate value of my classic box is about $14.00. I thought this box had all sorts of variety in it. I've been mixing the powders I get in my boxes with almond or coconut milk for breakfast. I used to eat oatmeal all the time but I got tired of it. I think with this oatmeal I will mix some of the eat green tea product in it. Supposedly just one tablespoon gives you an amazing amount of antioxidants, sounds like a great way to start the day. The banana soap smells delicious! I don't know how long it will last because it's pretty small. I might put it in one of my bathrooms cause it's so cute. I like the snackimals cereal and I liked it just plain as a snack. I could see buying that and portioning it out in snack bags.

Verdict: If I paid full price I would've been disappointed in the value. I bought a yearly subscription on sale that worked out to just over $9 a month for me which makes this box a good deal.
