December 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 a month. 

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. 

December Conscious Box

Contents of box w/approximate retail price: 

Dram of Caledula Oil. Value = $?? - This stuff is great. I have a dry spot on my left elbow that just won't go away and I used it for a couple days and it's really working. 

3 pack of Oscillococcinum. Value = $6.50

MRM Fresh Omega Fish Oil Supplements. Value = $14.99

1 oz. Somersaults in cinnamon crunch. Value = $0.99

Mazama High Performance Energy Bar. Value = $3.50 - This is not good at all in any way shape or form. 

Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams. Value = $1.00

(2) Nordic Naturals gummy multivitamins. Value = $0.40 - They tasted good but I have no idea if it works. 

APS Grass Fed Whey. Value = $4.00

3 Little Girls Holistic OrangePop Lipgloss. Value = $3.00

.5 oz. A Place of Healing Unstuff Organic Vapor Balm. Value = $4.00

Goats Milk Soap sample. Value = $??

EV Skinlabs Skin Balm. Value = $??

Metolius Tea and Apothecary Ginger Chocolate Black tea. Value = $1.50

The approximate value of this classic box is about $39.88 plus a buck or 2 for the soap, skin balm and caledula oil. I love that this box always has so much variety in it. It's not just food or makeup or supplements, it's a little of everything. I am totally stocked up on the Oscillococcinum in case anyone gets the flu. For the near year I'm going to make a big effort to reduce carbs and increase protein. That eating style works best for me and I've been guzzling down the carbs lately and it's really showing. The whey protein mix will be great for quick meals and the peanut butter will be great when I'm having a sweet craving. I just ran out of fish oil supplements and I've seen this brand in the Sprouts I shop at so I'm happy to try it. 

Verdict: I thought this months box was great and had lots of things I'm eager to try.
