Conscious Box September Review

In addition to getting my first NatureBox today, I also got my first Conscious Box. Unfortunately, I am incredibly disappointed with my Conscious Box. I got the Classic box, which is $19.95/month. I feel like it was worth around $5.

I was really excited about this box because I’ve heard great things about it. I was even more excited when I saw how cute the box was! The packaging is beautiful!

Since I don’t have kids, I’m not sure what to do with this sample. I also don’t take energy supplements, so I’ll be throwing them out. Was energy the theme for this month? Because there’s a ridiculous amount of energy supplements for one box.

I won’t use the majority of items in this box, and they aren’t even worth giving away to a friend. I am perplexed by the advertisements, the children’s products, and the single sandwich bag. I cancelled my subscription immediately and don’t think I’ll be resubscribing anytime soon. But I know a lot of people who love this box, so maybe I just got unlucky. How about you? Did you like your box?

  1. I had the same exact reaction! Got my first box yesterday and will be canceling right away. What’s the deal? I was excited about this box at first… So disappointing.

    • Me too! I always like to try it out for another month or two just to see if it gets better. But with Conscious Box I am just so disappointed; it seems like they’re going for quantity over quality. It sucks that you got menopause pills! And you’re totally right about the double boxing, I was confused by that too.

      • Right? Seems like such a waste to double box. I guess they were worried the menopause pills might get damaged 😉 it’s such a great idea though, I hope they can pull it together! I’ll follow you too 🙂 please feel free to follow us too 🙂 I love my sub-box community, and I love seeing what other people get that’s different!
