February 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. 

February Conscious Box

Contents of box w/approximate retail price: 

Vintage Italia Pasta Chips in garlic olive oil flavor. Value = $0.81

Halfpops popcorn in sea salt flavor. Value = $1.49

Florax DS Diarrhea Relief travel pack in raspberry flavor. Value = $5.00

.5 oz. Via Nature Hydrating Skin Lotion in Swiss Apple. Value = $0.56

.5 oz. Via Nature Sensitive Care lotion, fragrance free. Value = $0.56

.5 oz. Via Nature Soothing Lotion in lavender eucalyptus. Value = $0.56

.5 oz. Via Nature Moisturizing Lotion in Vanilla Coconut. Value = $0.56

Crystal Deodorant Towelette. Value = $0.50

EatWhatever breath savers. Value = $0.30

Traditional Medicinals Easy Tea. Value = $0.31

.17 oz. Aloevella Wrinkless Cream. Value = $12.68

The approximate value of this classic box is about $23.33. Can you believe the value of the little foil packet of Wrinkless Cream? I had to triple check it. A little container (.67 oz.) is $50!. The directions on their website say apply liberally, not at that price. Although if you hate your wrinkles and this works then I guess it's worth it. I love me some halfpops so I was super excited to see these in the box. I will use the sample lotions and deodorant (although the towelettes aren't my favorite). I will definitely try the tea and breath mint thing. The odd ball in the box is the anti-diarrhea product. I guess I just didn't expect to see this in here. I think it would be a good item for a toiletry bag so I'm going to toss it in there. We are going on a cruise this summer so I guess it wouldn't hurt to keep a bottle of this handy. 

Verdict: This box had some stuff I love and some new stuff to try. Great value considering I paid $9
