June REGULAR Conscious box (plus code for FREE box)

Conscious Box is a discovery box for those who are wanting to "dip their toes" in to the eco friendly/green lifestyle and for those who have already embraced a greener way of life as well. For 19.95 a month (12.95 box and 7.00 shipping) you will get a combination of deluxe samples as well as full size products of some of the best environmentally conscious and all natural products available on the market. They offer a classic box of green, health products, a vegan box and a gluten free box as well. This month I actually got this one (the regular conscious box) as well as a vegan box (which I will review separately)

Conscious box always includes a pretty nature inspired postcard in their boxes, I REALLY need to frame some of these (yes, I said that last month too I am sure...but really, I do ) I actually made progress on this. I am putting these in my bedroom along one wall in the frames without the edges.

Let me add in here that Conscious box added info cards this month (which I absolutely love and thank them for...makes my job sooo much easier!!! I did take pictures, but as you can tell by looking at these pics the lighting was off and my camera was all funky (seriously like all pics of 4 different boxes are "just off" note to camera)

Organic Flavrz drink mix from GoOrganic- this was also in my June Love with food box, but I am happy to see several more of them. They are pretty tasty, just mix in with your water as much or as little as you want and is an immunity booster...I need all the help in that area I can get 

Sneakz Organic Yummy Veggie Nutrition Milkshake- this organic chocolate flavored milk box also has a full serving of fruit. pretty cool. My little guy loves these so again very happy to see this in my box!

Skout Bar- this is an organic trail bar. I got apple cinnamon and cherry vanilla. Not something I would have ever bought myself, but actually pretty good. I would buy them again....they are organic, vegan, gluten free, and non GMO so pretty good for me too!

LARABAR "ALT" peanut butter cookie fruit and nut bar- I have never heard of these before, so I was cautiously  intrigued ...this is also gluten free, vegan, non GMO plus dairy free.... just sounds like it would not be tasty but seriously it is ...really it is YUMMY...I managed to get a bite before Tuff Stuff gobbled it up as his snack this morning.

Greek Island labs "joint mud"- I am super duper excited about this little packet. I haven't heard of this before and extreme joint pain is part of my normal every day life. it's all natural made with organic cherry, pomegranate, chamomile and black seed. you rub it on up to three times a day (this little packet might not be enough for me to try on all the problem joints...but my shoulder, hips and knees perhaps) if this little packet of mud works you will certainly know it because I will be posting a huge blog post about it for my fellow dragon slayers... I have actually already told a few I am going to try it out...I am in a "flare" right now so I am waiting to try it because it wouldn't be "fair" to test it out in a flare since flares are super intense and need super power pain meds...once this flare is gone I am trying this mud out for sure!!!

$50 wine gift card from naked wines- these sure are popular little cards... I am getting quite the collection of them! They don't ship to Texas unfortunately so I really need to figure out something to do wit them. I need to gift these to a friend in a ship friendly state.

Son for men- this is a vegan non GMO soothing lotion that stabilizes and stimulates the skin after a share (or before a wash it says as well) My hubby will be happy to try this out for also says it helps with ingrown hairs so I am thinking I may keep it and try it myself (shh...just don't tell hubby)

Natural Vitality Natural Calm- this is a raspberry lemon flavored drink you add to your water that "balances your magnesium to prevent muscle cramping, reduce acid buildup, and replace magnesium lost during exercise or stress"... I  am curious about this stuff I must confess... I actually have a bog problem absorbing vitamins and minerals because of my illness and take prescription strength supplements of most... which means I doubt I will be able to try this (I would have to check with my Dr) I will likely have one of my adult daughters or hubby try this out.

Cloud Star Buddy-Wash original lavender & Mint shampoo + conditioner- I haven't tried the Cloud B products before and I am always looking for new grooming items for my furry babies...Miss Libby as I have mentioned has a bit of an anxiety problem so lavender products are great for her as it does calm her a bit...I will be trying this soon. I love that it has the built in the summer months the babies her dry skin even though they are inside 99% of the time.

Earth Friendly Products Organic Lemongrass hand soap- this smells absolutely AMAZING!!! lemongrass is one of my favorite scents, I have already put this on the kitchen sink for use to use in there...I am defiantly buying more of this!!!

Molly Muriel- Soft as silk shampoo bar and volcanic bliss bar soap (these are actually in one package..just labeled different on each side with a divider between the bars in the bag) I am very excited to try the volcanic bliss bar (I have always wanted to try volcanic ash soap and just never buy it) the shampoo bar I will have to let hubby try I think my hair would become a tangled mess in that bar!

Smock sustainable paper- I am really liking this stationary company and the card is a nice weight and quality...the website is a bit pricey though..heaven help me!!!

I did not get a group photo of this box evidently (geeze...what is it with me and conscious box... I NEVER seem to get a "group" picture of everything in the box... I think it's because there is always so much in the box and I am ready to really "dig in" by the time I am done taking pictures...this time it might have been the 7 other boxes waiting for review though...)
 I can honestly say that Conscious box is by far one of my favorite boxes (in my top 3 actually) This will be a box I will continue with for quite some time... I am still relatively new to the "eco friendly, organic and green" products and this is a great box for discovering products!!

There are always great codes available for Conscious box and most of them work for new subscribers as well as current subscribers which I really like because hey, I am the one using the service every month..give me an incentive... I wish more boxes realized this and gave their current subscribers great incentives as well.
