I decided to try out another Conscious Box since the last time I tried one I wasn't too impressed and from what I have read they have improved their offerings.
I used a promo code to get half off and paid $9.95 for this box. Unfortunately it took a long time to arrive and when I went to cancel, so I wouldn't get another one, they had already charged me $19.95 for May's box.
I do think they have improved since the last time I tried this sub box. They have 2 different sizes that you can purchase now. One is the Taster box with 5 - 8 items which is $9.95 a month. The other one is the Plus box which is $19.95 a month and comes with 8 - 12 items. Then you also have the choice of classic, vegan or gluten-free. This box is the gluten-free one.
Free For All Gluten Free Crackers - Olive Oil & Sea Salt
I've tasted quite a few gluten-free products lately and 85% of them are not good. Unfortunately these crackers fall in that 85%. They literally look like a piece of cardboard - seriously! I will just stick to real food - thanks.
For anyone interested though, these are made with cassava flour.
Hebron - Florax DS Probiotic - Natural Flavor
I've had good luck with probiotics in the past, I just find them to be very expensive to keep taking on a regular basis. I've only taken capsules though and this is a liquid. This is a 30 day supply - 5 vials and you take 1 each week.
As long as the flavor of this is tasty I will try this out. I like that you just take it weekly.
Bach Rescue Pearls
Relieve stress with the power of flowers! These are non-habit forming capsules that you place on your tongue and just let it dissolve. You take 1 and take more as needed. This package has 28 capsules. I don't really get stressed to the point of needing some kind of help but I might give these to my husband. He has a lot of stress to deal with.
ITO-EN Matcha Green Tea Latte
An on-the-go latte made with the creme de green tea, matcha. Ick!
Besides this being a disgusting color of green, tea with milk just grosses me out and I won't be drinking it. It is a nice full-size 16.9 oz bottle though.
This is a natural supplement to restore your iron. It is actually iron-rich natural spring water. I guess if you are deficient in iron this might something you would want. I find it a little strange to just drink a gulp full of iron and I can only imagine that it tastes kind of gross. Well - hold on, I'll just taste it for you...brb...OMG it was like drinking liquid metal! Ugh....it would be so much easier to just take a pill.
Ecover Dishwasher Tablets
2 tablets that are phosphate and chlorine free, biodegradable and not tested on animals. I'm happy to receive a sample like this because I have found trying to use some of these "green" products on the market tend to not produce very good results. You pay a lot of money for them but they really don't deliver well. I'm glad to have a couple of tablets to try before I spend the money on a whole box just to find out they don't really work. I hope these do.
Raw Rev 100 Bar - Chocolate Coconut Bliss
100 calorie organic live food bar. I've had these bars before and depending on the flavor they can be pretty good. I find the whole raw food thing weird and would really miss having some cooked food if I were to go raw. This bar is pretty good. It has that sort of raw dough texture that they usually have. The chocolate and coconut makes it pretty tasty. It really helped get that iron taste out of my mouth!
I love gummy vitamins, but I know that the sugar in them can trigger you to want more carbohydrates - yes they can! Given the choice though I will take gummy vitamins any day over yucky old pills. These ones were the exact texture of original gummy bears! The kind where you can't really bite through it because it's too bouncy? They really taste like a gummy bear too. I'm actually quite surprised because the other gummy vitamins that I have tried are just a gummy type of vitamin. This one was totally like a real gummy bear! Very delicious.
Handy, unscented wipe to use in place of deodorant when on-the-go
Nordic Naturals Omega Boost - Tropical Mango
For Heart, Brain and Immune Support. Gives you a generous boost of Omega-3s in just one bite.
Natralia Dry Skin Lotion
A natural lotion formulated in Australia, it is suitable for sensitive and itchy skin. No sulphates, parabens artifical colors or fragrances.
Fight bacterial, fungal and viral infections with these capsules made from fresh, raw garlic. Well, I know that regular use of garlic can prevent many things. This is a supplement for you take so that you don't have to eat it all the time. In case you don't know....regular ingestion of garlic, or possibly this supplement, can help combat things like athlete's foot, arthritis, colds, colitis, eczema, flu, gum disease, Lyme disease, MRSA, nail fungus, Psoriasis, ringworm, sinusitis, bacterial infections, fungal infections and viral infections!
