November 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.

Sample size: Some of the sample sizes are really small and not enough to really evaluate the product. 

Contents of box w/approximate retail price: 

MRM Digest-All 100% Vegetarian Enzyme supplements (2). Value = $0.50

1 day supply of Smarty Pants gummy vitamins. Value = $0.73

Swiss Villa LLC Raw Milk Cow Cheese sample. Value = ?? - This was ok, had a lot of herbs de provence in it. 

.07 oz. Sunology Natural Sunscreen. Value = $0.42

.81 oz. Detox RX Cell-O-Firm Body Gel. Value = $4.00

(3) Mighty Leaf Tea packs. Value = $0.66

Mega Food Vegan Daily Supplement (2). Value = $0.89 - No aftertaste but unable to evaluate if they work or not. 

.34 oz. Maty's Caramel Banana Cough Syrup. Value = $0.64

Reboot drink. Value = $4.66

Soapbox Apple scented soap. Value = ?? - I thought this was body soap but found out after using it that it's hand soap. It didn't say on the package. 

Lulu Blossom Night Cream. Value = ?? - A little goes a long way with this. It's thick but not greasy. 

Plum Kids Grammy Sammy Yogurt Filled Sandwich Bar. Value = $0.80 - Didn't taste like I thought it would and it was kind of dry. 

Coupon for 2 Postography cards. Value = $1.29/ea.

The approximate value of this classic box is about $15.88. It was just ok. I'm finding that these boxes aren't as good as they used to be even at half price. I am interested in trying the Reboot drink though, it's definitely different. The soap and night cream is nice to try because it's something I use everyday. The body gel sounds good but I'm not sure one application is going to give me noticeable results. All the other stuff will be used here and there. 

Verdict: This box was just ok and I'm really glad I only paid $9 for it.
