August 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.

Price: $19.95 a month. The 12 month pre-paid plan offers a discount. 

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


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.

The total approximate value of this months box is $13.79. Needless to say I'm not happy with the value of this box. I could just kick myself for not canceling before it auto-renewed! The good news is I will use most of the items in this box. I am super curious about the black bean spaghetti. It's high in protein and fiber which is great. I hope it tastes good. 

Verdict: This box had a terrible value but ok products.
