Review: Conscious box

I love surprises, so I was excited to review Conscious Box.  This is a fun service that you can subscribe to for monthly surprises that include pure and sustainable products.  They start at $19/month (with shipping) and are something fun to look forward to! You can order their boxes at: http://www.consciousbox.com/


There were two questions that I had before the box arrived:
   (1) Is it gift-worthy?
   (2) Are there $19 worth of items?  (I know that it was only $12 + shipping, but I think that many of us consider the total price paid when we evaluate if something is worth it.)


The contents were professionally wrapped neatly in tissue paper.  The box has a square cut out in the middle with a nature-related photo as shown below.  It then comes with a card that suggests several ways to recycle the box, such as using it to plant seeds, storing art supplies, or compositing it.   I think that the presentation makes it gift-worthy.




The contents were a mix of mainly samples, plus coupon codes to order additional items online.  There were snacks (tortilla chips and crackers), a few drink mixes, a lozenger, tomato seeds, mints, coffee creamer, and a packet of hand cream. (See photo below.)  There was then a coupon that was easy to use for a free breakfast cookie. There was also a coupon for Mineral Hygienics for a free full size item, up to $15. It says that the Mineral Hygienics product is completely FREE (up to $15), but you do need to pay shipping costs.  There were also coupons for a free tin of mints with purchase at a tea store and $5.00 off at hippiemountainmama.com that I haven't used yet.   I mostly excited about the heirloom tomato seeds and mints. The picture below shows the contests of the box. Do you think that it was worth the price?  


If you leave a comment with your favorite item from the box, I'll enter you to win the $15 off coupon from Mineral Hygienics! As mentioned earlier, shipping is additional. Contest runs until 3/30/2012!

  9. Best monthly subscription service out there by far. Always filled to the brim with surprises. My box got lost in the mail so I can't name a favorite item yet but Conscious Box did ship me a new one yesterday and added an extra surprise for me too :) I've had the mints and e-boost in pink lemonade before and like both!

  10. I think the tomato seeds as well would be a fun surprise gift. Sounds like a fun box of goodies.
