If you're anything like me, you love trying out new products. We live in a world that is always debuting new products to try and it can be overwhelming to try and decide not only what is worth our money, but also which items are better for us and the environment. That's where Conscious Box comes in! They offer one of the most refreshing monthly subscription boxes out there - chock full of wholesome products that are environmentally friendly, cruelty-free, non-GMO and often gluten free and vegan as well!
Priced at only twenty dollars a month, I knew this was a box I wanted to try. So when I found a coupon online I signed up for my first box and I'm very happy that I did. My June Conscious Box more than sold me on their service and I can't wait to see what's in store in the future!
My box came earlier in the month and before I even got to the products within I was excited. They put these boxes together very nicely. There was even a postcard that I could send to someone...but I think I'll just keep it and instead close my eyes and envision being in the gorgeous place featured! ;)
While I'm not vegan, I personally chose the vegan box option. I enjoy vegan products and wanted to see what they would include.
Upon first impression of the contents of this box I was very impressed. It seemed to be filled to the gills with products - which it definitely was!
First up were the Beanfields Snacks Bean & Rice Chips, in the sea salt flavor. Boy were these delicious!! The ingredient list was very impressive - everything on it was not only readable and pronounceable but simple. A+ in my book. I look forward to trying their other flavors!
True Natural All Natural Sunscreen - Okay so I'm one of those weird people who actually likes the scent of sunscreen. But this stuff is fantastic! I'm absolutely loving the coconut and I think it might actually encourage me to use sunscreen more often which is something I need to get in the practice of doing!
Next up were these bars from Skout. I first tried the apple cinnamon and it was incredibly yummy. Like I've said in a previous post, I am very picky about snack bars so that means a lot. I had zero complaints about this one and would definitely purchase it.
In the box were two flavors: Skout Organic Apple Cinnamon and Skout Organic Cherry Vanilla.
The next product, Son for Men, is something technically for men, to aid with ingrown hairs and razor burn, but let's be honest: this is not a men only problem. I personally have pretty sensitive skin so while I haven't tried this product yet, I definitely will and have no issues doing so! This product could easily be unisex!
This little Herbal Zap packet is full of herbs to aid with immunity. Grown in Sri Lanka, these herbs pack a mighty punch in a tiny packet. Just add to water and enjoy. I'm saving this for when I feel under the weather but I like that it's small enough to just keep with me for a drink on the go!
Staying with the drinks-on-the-go theme, these pouches will keep your thirst quenched practically anywhere. There were two flavors in the box: superfruit and citrus hibiscus. I've tried the citrus hibiscus flavor and it's definitely a different taste - but in a good way!
This Lotus Moon face moisturizer was an exciting thing to find in my box. While I currently have a moisturizer that I'm pretty happy with, I'm always looking to try something new that might impress me more. So far, I've been using this hibiscus moisturizer both morning and evening and I'm pleased with the results. It's not overly greasy and my sensitive skin seems to have no complaints. I also like the unique scent! These little sample pouches really provide a lot of product as well. This might be one of the items I chose to purchase from my box first!
This Nature's Baby Organics shampoo & body wash might be marketed for babies and children but who cares!? This stuff smells AMAZING!! I seriously couldn't stop sniffing it when I first took it out of the box. I love little sample sized bottles of product because they're great for on the go and they also work well for everyday use since they take up far less space in your shower. When you have a full house that is definitely an added bonus. ;)
One of the last products in the box was this ALT snack bar in peanut butter cookie. I actually ended up giving this bar to my sister who is basically addicted to all things peanut butter and she said it was awesome and that she would definitely eat one again. Considering her affinity for all things sweet and desert like, I will take that as a good thing. :) These bars are actually from the Larabar makers which is a company I love (especially their apple pie bars!) I definitely want to try their other ALT flavors like apple crisp and pumpkin pie! They sound delicious!
Lastly, there were a few things in the box from a site called Paper Culture. There were a few gift tag stickers as well as an adorable card. Also they put in a coupon code for a $25.00 voucher on their site. This company uses 100% post-consumer recycled paper for every product they make and also plants a tree for every order received. How fantastic is that?! I definitely plan on placing an order from them sometime in the near future. I just need to decide between all their adorable designs!
Conscious Box offers three different box options (vegan, gluten-free and classic) as well as various subscription choices (monthly, 3 month, 6 month and yearly). I'd highly recommend this service to anyone interested in trying out some unique products every month!
