May Conscious Box - Classic Box

Conscious box 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.

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. 

May Classic Conscious Box

(1) 3 Gallon Biodegradable BioBag. Value = $0.24

(1) Flents Biodegradable Lens Wipe. Value = $0.20

(1) San Francisco Bay French Roast Coffee Pod. Value = $0.66 - I like this coffee and have bought it in the past. 

.34 oz. Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo. Value = $0.59 - I didn't care much for this shampoo. I didn't feel like it cleaned my hair very well. 

.34 oz. Weleda Oat Replenishing Conditioner. Value = $0.59 - Not a fan of this conditioner. It didn't make my hair feel soft after using it. 

(1) Crystal Deodorant Towelette. Value = $0.50

1/2 serving (2) capsules MRM Vegan Bone Maximizer capsules. Value $0.67

Choice Organic Teas English Breakfast Teas. Value = $0.31

LaraBar Peanut Butter Cookie. Value = $1.12

Vita Coco Pure Coconut Water. Value = $1.16

2 oz. Acquavena Hand & Body Lotion. Value = $2.11

1.05 oz. bag Barbara's Bakery Puffins Cereal. Value = $0.55 - I ate this as a snack out of the bag. They were pretty substantial I would guess they would hold up good in milk. 

PurAbsorb Iron Supplement. Value = $0.71 - This was also in last months box. I was bummed to see it again, mostly because it was the most awful thing I ever tasted. 

The total value of this months box is $9.41. I'm not liking the value of this box. I forgot to cancel the auto renew so this box is coming for another year at $16.95 a box. Most everything in the box I will use, except the PurAbsorb. It was beyond horrible tasting. I'm also not a fan of coconut water. I know people say it's good for you but I don't like the taste. I'm hoping I'll be able to mix it with something so I don't waste it. All the other samples I will use for sure.
