Got my first Conscious Box this past weekend! I ordered a free one and paid only $7.95 for shipping. You can try this promo code (FREEBOX) to do the same! 
*if it doesn't work, please let me know. 

Conscious Box is $19.95/mth and features “the healthiest and most eco-friendly products”. 

Descriptions are from the Conscious Box website, product websites and my own. Reviews are my own.


K-PaxEnergy Booster ($12.08 value): 
"Why take multiple vitamins when you can get a dose of everything and more? K-Pax Energy's high potency, non-GMO multivitamin not only supports your immune system, but it provides you with a plethora of vital vitamins and minerals that'll give you a lift of all-natural energy."

"Feel more energized without the hassle of a caffeine or sugar crash. Eboost's delicious drink mixes are full of the vitamins, minerals and super-nutrients you need to get through your busy day."

CorrectivFacial (~$2.75 value): 
"Restore your skin's radiance and youthfulness with this simple one-step natural skincare solution. CorrectivFacial acts as a cleanser, make-up remover, exfoliant, toner and skin rejuvenator."

I've used this a couple times and I feel neutral about it. It cleanses but my skin feels slightly tight afterwards if I don't put moisturizer on. Every one's different though, could work for you!

Doctor's Best Chewable D-Ribose - 10 Wafers ($3.44 value)
"Supplement your workout properly with all natural chewable D-Ribose. This dietary supplement supports ATP production in heart and muscle tissue and reduces the formation of pesky free radicals during exercise."

The chewable tablets tasted fine, like most other chewable vitamins I think. Slightly fruity with a typical chewable vitamin aftertaste. Had sort of a chalky texture. Not sure if it works or not though.

"Fight the effects of aging with this liquid supplement that'll nourish your skin, hair and nails. Formulated with collagen, biotin, silica, plus Vitamins A, C, and E - you'll see the difference in no time."

"Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo is formulated from soothing and calming lavender essential oil, wheat protein, aloe and vitamins that will nourish and moisturize your hair so that it looks and feels soft, shiny and healthy!"

I tried the Avalon Shampoo this morning and was not too impressed with the results. My hair felt VERY dry after rinsing; it almost had a stripped feeling. The smell reminded me of a citrusy household cleaner.

EnjoyNatural Calm by Natural Vitality with Coupons ($1 Off Any 2 Coupon & Buy 6, Get 1 Free Coupon) ($1.17 value): 
"Lower Your Stress - Feel Your Best!: Our favorite thing about Natural Calm by Natural Vitality is how easy they make it to enjoy a supplement. Natural Vitality delivers powerful levels of key nutrients and doesn't require choking down a poorly absorbed pill or holding your nose to escape chemical tastes. Instead, you can just sit back and sip the tasty, simple and oh-so-bubbly drink!"

Coastal Scents All Natural African Black Soap ($0.55 value) - $12.99 per 1 lb: 
"This soap is fair trade AND made by women in a Ghanaian village! Use this soap to wash your skin, hair, face, even remove make-up. Lather up with African black soap, it's been known for centuries to help soothe skin irritations and clear blemishes and acne."

I used this and it is FANTASTIC! I would definitely buy this in the future. A tiny bit goes a very long way! I barely rubbed it on my bath sponge and had tons of suds left over when I was finished. Really good sample!

Razor Care Company - Blade Buddy $10 off Coupon (+$5 off coupon for a friend):
"Blade Buddy maintains the sharpness of your razor blades for months, saving you money, reducing waste, and eliminating nicks, cuts, razor burn and ingrown hair."

It costs $20, so it's a 50% off coupon. Pretty good deal if it's a product your interested in!

It's a children's book about a pair of time travelers. Costs $7.00 ($3.50 with this coupon).

Aquatowel Water-Based Hand Towellete ($0.41 value) - ($10 per 25 towels): 
"Biodegradable and non-toxic. Try out a gentle, environmentally conscious ad multipurpose personal towel with Aquatowel. You can use this 97.4% water wipe for your hands, face, body and even to clean surfaces."

 Apparently it was developed by NASA (see their September unboxing video here) and after using it the first time, you can wash it and dry to use as a hanky! Cleverness! My regular wet wipes would fall apart if I tried to do that! I use wet wipes on EVERYTHING! They are the perfect little things to clean up small (or large!) messes. These are even better than regular wet wipes because of how gentle it is with its mostly water base, instead of being filled with chemicals you don't know anything about!

"Looking for tea that gives you a little more? Discover Celestial Seasonings All Natural Antioxidant Max tea! Packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and a boost of caffeine, each fruity, deliciously sweet sip of this Blackberry Pomegranate Green Tea will have you skipping through your work day wide-eyed and smiley!"

"Check out this Miami-based sustainable clothing company for all sorts of fun, kitschy apparel and accessories. Just look for the golden squirrel."
Discount Cards are Good, but not when it's for a store that have only a few logo emblazoned items for sale… There were a few of t-shirts and a polo for men and for women and an embroidered baseball cap. Everything had their squirrel logo on it and was only available in white or black. It's nice that they use sustainable materials but it almost seems as if no one has checked or updated the website since they started a year ago. A discount card for an online clothing shop that had more than 5 products would've been fantastic!:)

Good Boy Organics BOPS Potato Snacks - $3.69 per 3oz bag
Not only do these sea salt flavored potato chips have 65% less fat than regular chips, but they are also organic, gluten-free, GMO free. And apparently where it’s made (in Slovakia), one of their top priorities is to make sure their product is absolutely GMO free. Pretty neat!

Total Value: $28.85
