I used to subscribe to Conscious Box but after getting several disappointing boxes I cancelled my subscription. Over the last few months Conscious Box made a lot of changes, so when they offered to send me this free box to review I was interested in seeing what their boxes look like now. They now offer two different box options. The first is the taster box, which has 5-8 items per month. Subscriptions to the taster box start at $6.95 a month. The second option is the plus box. The plus box has 8-12 items per month, and these boxes start at $16.95 per month. Both boxes come in gluten-free, vegan, and regular.
The box I received is a gluten-free plus box, and it was packed. I noticed a couple of really big changes in the packaging. The first thing is that there is now a “theme” and the second thing is that they now have cute packaging.
This box had a large array of gluten-free foods. Everything from soda to lentil crackers to coffee. All of the foods were single servings, but I think that a single serving is enough to be able to tell if you like a food or not. There several different types of Eco Teas, and I have already purchased more of them.
In addition to all of the foods there were beauty and nutrition samples. There were two samples of vitamins, a Hero Nutritionals kids multivitamin and a Nordic Naturals vitamin C. Both of these vitamins are made with high quality ingredients. Conscious Box also included a Dr. Jacobs castile soap trio. They can be used for lots of purposes including as shampoo or as laundry detergent. They are perfect size for traveling, so I am saving them for our next trip. There are also two brands of samples of anti-aging products. One is Love for Humanity Organics: Anti-Aging Eye Serum and the other is Own Beauty Anti-Aging Trio. All of these samples are so small that I am not sure if I could really tell if they made any difference. The last sample is of Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic, which got used on a skinned knee. It smells nice and it not too gooey.
All in all, I think that Conscious Box has made some improvements to their boxes, but I am not impressed enough to start subscribing again. What do other people think about the new and improved Conscious Boxes?
