It’s that time of the month again (no, not that time) — it’s Conscious Box shipment time!
My May box arrived today, and though it was a far cry from last month’s Mystery Box, it was still fun to dig into. This is the second (I think) in my 6-month subscription. BUT I have a lot more coming, since I recently won a contest on their Facebook page for a 1-year subscription. Woo!
Okay, onto the review…
First look… The box inside a box.
Second look… Pretty flowers and dreaded foil packet samples. Boo.
Dream Water in Snoozeberry – I guess this is the opposite of an energy drink? I’ve never had a Red Bull, or anything along those lines, so I’m kinda unsure about taking these. I DO have trouble sleeping, so I spose it wouldn’t hurt to try it out on one of those nights that I find myself staring at the ceiling fan at 2am.
Ecover Automatic Dishwasher Tablets (2) – With two babies, we go through a LOT of dishes/bottles. These eco-friendly dishwasher tabs will definitely get put to use. Only thing about this that kinda bugs me is that it says “Free Sample” right on the package. Sorta sucks the fun out of it, being that I paid for the box/samples I received. Ah well.
Graw Bar Original – This looks tasty. All natural/raw/gluten-free food bar. Snacks are usually my favorite part of these boxes. Sadly, this month was lacking in that department.
Sacred Chocolate White Passion – This sounds like a title of a porno, but it was actually a piece of chocolate. A teeny, tiny heart-shaped one. It was delicious, and I want more. What a tease.
Ultima Replenisher Supplement Powder – Again, I don’t really use supplement drink-type things, so I’m not too excited about this. Though I did just look at the back of the package & it says you can drink it with hot water. It has a ton of Vitamin C, so maybe I’ll drink it like a hot tea when I’m on the verge of a cold. I dunno.
Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen – I’m looking to start using more natural skin/body products, so I was happy to see this in the box. However, the size of the sample is pretty weak.
Veria ID Innerdosha Shampoo & Conditioner – Again, foil packets suck. I don’t even get excited when I get foil packet samples in the mail for FREE. So yeah, I’ll use these, but not too thrilled to get them.
Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste (2 packets) – I was excited to hear that I was getting natural toothpaste in this month’s box… Until (you guessed it!) I saw that they were in the form of foil packets. Ughhhh. At least there’s 2 of them (peppermint & cinnamon). The package says that they’re “safe to eat”, so if teeth-brushing isn’t your thing, eat away!
Suki Body Butter Cream Salve – This is scented with organic lavender extract & organic cocoa butter. Sounds nice. I seem to be getting lots of salves/moisturizers in boxes lately. More snacks, please!
Pollen Ranch Fennel Pollen – I could smell this stuff as soon as I opened the box. I’m not sure how to describe it, but it’s pleasant. Apparently this is used as a seasoning. There’s a recipe for pork stapled to it, which doesn’t make much sense for a vegan box, but what can ya do. There was already a lot of hoopla over it on Facebook, so I’m kinda over it now. The spice(?) itself is vegan, so whatever.
Bija Lemon Ginger Echinacea Tea – I’m a fan of tea and an even bigger fan of ginger, so this gets a thumbs up. It’s also organic/caffeine-free. Nice.
GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) Sports Bottle Water Filter – Eh. I use my Brita pitcher to filter my water. I guess this is more for people “on the go” who fill their sports bottles with tap water. If I were someone “on the go”, I’d just fill it with my Brita pitcher water. So… yeah.
Herbamare Original Seasoning – Organic sea salt infused with organic herbs & veggies. I rarely use salt, so I’m not too excited about this one.
The last 2 things were just offers on business cards. Not sure why I bothered including them in the photos. But there they are.
Conscious Box also included a little blue ticket that will be used in some Facebook giveaways in a few days. Hopefully the prizes will be snacks.
Disclosure: I purchased this box with my own money. I was not reimbursed by Conscious Box in any way. All opinions are entirely my own.
