Review with Giveaway for Conscious Box (US only, ends 06/16/13)

Disclosure: I received this product/service at a greatly reduced cost of only $1 in exchange for my honest opinion of it. I was not required to post a positive review.

Conscious Box is one of those new box-of-the-month club subscriptions that are out there. What I think makes this box unique is that it contains, healthy, eco-friendly, natural products inside! Conscious Box contacted me with the hopes that I might enjoy a month's box in exchange for a review.. I was given a discount code to use on their website which was supposed to give me a free box. However, it reduced the cost to $1. Okay, I am fine with that. But, their website didn't accept my credit card payment the first time or the second time. So I submitted payment a third time. My credit card was charged
three times though. I contacted them to let them know what had happened. They didn't seem to believe what I said so I explain that there had been three separate charges placed on my account. At which time I was told that they should disappear in a couple days. If not, let them know. Thankfully, the two additional charges did drop off on their own with no further intervention from Conscious Box. Bear in mind, that this is a monthly subscription. If you do not cancel your subscription, your credit card will automatically be charged for the following month's box. Even using my discount code to get my box signed me up for this. Luckily, I had used a debit card that is attached to my PayPal account that currently had a $0 balance and it was unable to charge me for my next month's box since I was not aware that it signed me up for the subscription. I then got several emails reminding me to update my card information to continue receiving the boxes.

When my box arrived, I was very excited to see what was inside. Each month's contents are a surprise. Items are sample sized so that you can try out each brand before buying it in a larger size so that you can see if it is the right product for you!




Lots of goodies were included! Supplements to try, detergent to wash my clothes with, lotion, deodorant and lots more!


Several kinds of supplements with lots of info cards!


A dried organic baby food sample (which we mixed into mac and cheese!) , lotion, deodorant, detergent, facial towelette


I loved all of the info cards that were included! Great info to help me decided if I wanted to buy any full size products of these samples!


Tea bag, supplements


Baby food, deodorant, facial towelette

facial towelette, lotion, detergent


I was very pleased with the contents. Some samples were small enough that it left me wanting more. Some were a little too small to see if I liked it or not (i.e.2 capsules of a supplement are not going to make a great enough difference for me to determine if it was beneficial or not). But overall, I found the concept of the monthly subscription interesting. I have found a couple of new products that I did enjoy enough to want to later purchase a full size product.




Conscious Box has generously agreed to allow one winner to receive a box! :)

  5. Honestly, I am not sure that I would subscribe due to budget. I did not see in your post how much a subscription would be. Does that vary?

    1. I don't typically list prices in my reviews. I look at it as that if the product or service interests you enough, you can find it on their website :) Here is a link to their subscription prices - http://www.consciousbox.com/subscribe

  8. What I like the most about this product is that you get to try many different products, and find out about some things you might want to add to your lifestyle regularly.

  9. I may or may not subscribe in the future. If I did it would have to be a budgeted expense, and I would cut out something somewhere else - I like the idea of trying healthy and health conscious items monthly to start to replace some of the things I’m currently using, eating or buying.
