I love blogging- I really do! But another past-time of mine is entering giveaways. No, I’m not one of those TLC-show-worthy ladies who spends her time entering thousands of sweepstakes a day. I just don’t have that sort of time or energy. Plus, I ain’t crazy – and I have a life. Nevertheless, I do enter my name into a few drawings here and there – and it’s always a wonderful surprise to find out I’ve won. Recently, I won a Conscious Box on a facebook page of one of my favorite sites (that has been on my blogroll for more than a few months now) www.subscriptionboxes.com – which is a great resource for finding subscription box services that are right for you. Anyways, without further ado, here’s my review of August’s Conscious Box!
This month’s box had a theme of “Rediscovering Your Groove”- enjoying those last few golden days of summer, and holding on the fun and energy of it, while also embracing fall’s tried and true path’s.
The products were as follows:
Crunchmaster Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Seasalt Crackers (.5oz bag), Go Raw Organic Real Live Apricot Bar (Net WT 12g), St.Claire’s Organics Watermelon Tarts, thinkThin Crunch Blueberry & Mixed Nuts fruit and nuts bar, thinkThin Crunch Chocolate Dipped Nuts bar (1.41 oz), a pouch of Honest Kids Berry Good Lemon drink, Weleda Pomegranate Firming Serum (1.0 FL oz), 2 loads worth of Berryplus laundry detergent, Fruity Splash Kids Natural Vitality Calm Multi-Vitamin (1 fl oz), 100% Pure Free Range Chicken Poop chapstick (contains NO POOP), Crispy Green Crispy Mangoes 100% Freeze-Dried Mangoes (0.36 oz), as well as various coupons and codes for other green-themed products.
Normally, I review every product (as with my Love with Food boxes) but the Conscious box had a so many products that I figure it would get a little tiresome to read a description and review for every single thing. So I’ll just let you know which products really stood out to me. The first on my list would be the Berryplus laundry detergent- the packaging was really attractive (in a clean, modern looking way) and the concept of green (the soap is derived from tree products) detergent is brilliant. Another of my Conscious Box fav’s was the Weleda Pomegranate Firming Serum- which was fulled sized btw and retails at $45! I haven’t used it yet, but I’ve read a lot of great things about it and I’m excited to try it out. The Chicken Poop chapstick was a nice addition to the box, and quite a conversation starter. What I really appreciate about Conscious Box is that they provide an amazing mixture of products to try- they provide something related to beauty, food, health, and wellness.
Conscious Box advertises as a great way to discover the best green, ethical, and sustainable products on the market- right at your doorstep every month for $19.95 a month. I’d say, based on this months box, that Conscious box is an excellent way to discover eco-friendly products- especially if you’re into health food” and/or environmentally friendly products. They provide a good amount of product samples (and some full-sized products) for the cost of subscription- and I’d certainly subscribe if I wasn’t living on a students budget. I really loved this box, and would definitely recommend it – even if you just get it for one month, it’s worth trying at least once.
