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!
Too bad the box contents did not live up to my expectations. I was confused by the aquatowel and disappointed by the skincare sample. It looks like the kind of sample you get for free from mall vendors.
I got 5 sample packs of an energy supplement, a bottle of chewable ribose, a packet of some kind of orange flavored energy boost drink, and a calming drink designed for children. 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.
And then I got a bag of potato chips, a liquid collagen drink mix, another kid product (grape tea), and a bunch of advertisements. I don’t know what’s up with all the kid products…and I’m not really sure why they would include so many ads.
Considering that this box is almost $20, I feel like it was a huge waste of money. 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?
