October 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.

I found a deal to get a year for half price so this box only cost me $9.00. 

This box is only available to ship to the US including Alaska and Hawaii and ships from Portland, OR

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.

Contents of box w/approximate retail price: 

.53 oz. OrganicSaurus Cheddar Cheese corn snack. Value = $0.75 - I had these in a previous box and I thought they were pretty tasty. 

Gnu Foods Fiber Love Banana Walnut Bar. Value = $1.99

Crum Creek Mini-Breadsticks. Value = $0.52 - these keep popping up in the boxes, they are just ok. 

FruitsMax 5 chewable supplements. Value = $5.83

Acure gotu kola stem cell + chlorella growth factor day cream. Value = $1.18

Bottle Bright 1 tablet. Value = $1.00

.13 oz. Honest Company Shampoo + body wash. Value = $0.15

Lotus Moon Vitamin B Hydrating Gel. Value = $1.65

Eat Green Tea. Value = $1.00 - more green tea....

.5 oz. Life Tree Citrus Fresh Concentrated Dish Soap. Value = $0.20

.025 Seventh Generation Boosts Natural Skin Serum. Value = $0.25

.12 oz. Seventh Generation Natural Body Lotion in Lavender. Value = $0.12

.2 oz. Goddess Garden Organics Lavender Mint Daily Lotion SPF15. Value = $0.21

Allimax Allicin capsules (2). Value = $2.00

Bio Bag Pet Waste Bag. Value = $0.15

The approximate value of my classic box is about $17.00. I liked this months box much better than last month. This one has snacks and lots of little beauty products to try. I thought this had a nice mix of stuff to try.  I like the idea of the biodegradable pet waste bag but I wish it were in roll form. I have the little roll attached to Maddie's leash for convenience. 

Verdict: I like this box and the variety but only because I paid half price for it.
