December Concious 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.

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.

Urban Remedy $15 voucher. - The juices have a minimum order and basically you have to spend $75 to use this. 

The total approximate value of this months box is $23.91. This box is so very hit and miss. I like all the snacks and teas in this box. The supplements are ok but the sample sizes aren't enough to really make a fair evaluation. I thought the fibromyalgia cream was an odd inclusion. That's something very specific that I would guess most people wound't have a need for. Maybe it can be used for other types of pain? I also have lots of the Oscillo packs, mostly from this box. I plan on taking them with me on our summer cruise in case one of us comes down with something.

Verdict: This box had lots of snacks we will eat.

  1. I used to get this box, but I found it so underwhelming...especially once I started getting the same lackluster food bars and supplements every month. I like the concept, though!

    1. I totally agree. The only reason I'm getting this box now is because I forgot to cancel and it automatically renewed me for another year. I have 3 boxes left but after that I'm done.
