Conscious Box tiiiime!
For any newbs out there (hi!), Conscious Box is a monthly subscription box that features eco-friendly/natural products. Items range from healthy snacks, to natural toothpaste, and everything in between. There are 3 different boxes to choose from: The Vegan Box (which I get), The Gluten-Free Box, and the Classic Box. All boxes are $19.95/month, but you can almost always find a coupon code — often up to 50% off!
This month’s box felt really heavy, which is odd for a Conscious Box, so I couldn’t wait to open it. What was inside? Let’s take a gander!
MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen – This is what was making the box so heavy! It’s a FULL SIZE sunscreen! It’s all natural and gluten free. Sadly, it’s not vegan, as it contains beeswax and lanolin. This isn’t the only product in my box that isn’t vegan, so I’m wondering if there was a mix up with boxes. I won a gluten-free box in a giveaway last month, so now I’m thinking maybe this is the g-free one? But if that’s the case, then I’m missing my regular vegan one… Hmm… I’ll look into it. Anywhooo… This sunscreen sells for $29.99 on Amazon, so it’s definitely worth more than the cost of the entire box!
Two Degrees Bar in Chocolate Banana – I’ve gotten these bars before and they’re pretty tasty. I’m not sure if I’ve tried this flavor, but I’m sure I’ll dig it. Not only are these bars vegan & gluten-free, but for every bar purchased, one is given to a child in need. Coolio!
Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar – These have also been in quite a few sub boxes over the last few months. I’m always happy to see it though, cos it’s all natural, vegan, made with whole grains, and tastes fantabulous.
RawJuvenate Organic Vegan Protein Powder – I’ve been hoping for some more protein powder samples cos I’ve been making smoothies every dang day. It’s always nice to give ’em a little extra oomph!
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts – I’ve had these before and I like them more than I thought I would. They’re perfect to sprinkle over your granola for a dose of fiber & protein.
Sappo Hill Glyceryne Creme Soap – Vegan/cruelty-free natural soap made with plant oils and 100% organic oats. It’s supposed to smell like oatmeal cookies when you lather it up. Yum.
The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas – I’ve gotten these in a bunch of different boxes and I tried to like ’em. Nope, still don’t. I wish I did though, they’d make a great healthy snack. Eh, what can ya do.
Mighty Leaf Tea – I received 3 different flavors: Organic Mint Melange, Organic Earl Gray, and Organic Spring Jasmine. What’s a sub box without some tea? Luckily, I’m a fan.
Runa Ginger-Citrus Guayusa Tea – The package says that this tea “offers a clear, focused energy by balancing as much caffeine as one cup of coffee with twice the antioxidants of green tea”. Whatever, I just like ginger-citrus flavor. That’s enough for me. 😉
BumBoosa Bamboo Baby Wipe – Yet another item that I’ve gotten a TON of in sub boxes. I spose that’s good though, since each packet contains just one baby wipe. These are made with real bamboo and I’ll totally wipe a butt with it.
Flora Flor-Essence Dietary Supplement – This is a one-dose supplement that’s supposed to “gently detox your body”. I’m not sure how much detoxifying one little dose can do, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to take it. (Uh, right?!)
SmartyPants Gummy Vitamins – Here’s another non-vegan item (gelatin). Again, I’m hoping this is actually the gluten-free box.
MRM Cram Alertness Supplement – This is supposed to “maintain alertness, focus and reaction time”. I’m not a huge fan of supplements, but at least it’s vegan.
So that’s my January Vegan (Gluten-Free?) Conscious Box!
Aside from the non-vegan items, it was a pretty decent selection of products. It was nice to see a full size (and expensive!) item, vegan or not.
