Along with these samples, I received 10 coupons with 6 coupons totaling 100% off in discounts and the rest totaling $12.50 in discounts. 

Having had the opportunity to have gotten a monthly box with Blissmo Box, which is catered to being eco-friendly and 'green', I can absolutely say that Conscious Box is a better buy! The cost of the box's subscription is $19/month but the value of all samples with discounts surpasses the value you pay for the month's box and the fact that you are able to sample 16 different products without having to fully commit a full size purchase is great!

I was able to try several of the products and by far my favorites are:

  • Climb on!
  • Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn
  • Clandestino
  • SeedBallz (although I'm still waiting for it to sprout)


Pro - 
  • Samples give you an opportunity to try without fully committing 
  • Ease into being eco-friendly, if you aren't already
  • Nice variety of products - beauty, household, body, lifestyle, snacks
  • Every month is themed
  • Opportunity to discover new favorites
  • The guessing is taken out of what products are really eco-friendly, sustainable, fair trade, vegan, cruelty free or GMO-Free because the Conscious Box have done that already
  • The box is full of goodies (literally and figuratively - items were bursting out of box)
  • A great team at Conscious box who interact via social media (like Facebook and Twitter); available also via email and phone!
Cons -
  • Price but you are definitely getting more than you are paying for  

In short -

Packaging - Brown box that is 100% recycled and inks from veggies. Bottom of box contained the company's mission and about discovering best products. Box was filled with 16 different products and had a card describing each item (all descriptions above were from included card).
