I received my first Conscious Box Plus shipment the other day and must share my first box reaction with my readers!
Conscious Box helps you discover healthier choices through 3 different types of boxes: Classic, Vegan, & Gluten Free. I selected Classic, and this is my first box:
I bought my subscription through Living Social for $23 ($56.85 value) however even the $23 for 3 boxes is a little disappointing for what you receive. Their advertisements show full-size and sample tubes, not foil packets (which entirely made up my box).
Total Value of the May Box: $10.14
Cost of Box (monthly): $19.95
I am completely disappointed in the value of this box. Sure, it comes with coupons but the value of the coupons should not be considered towards the value of the box. Conscious Box advertises sample tubes and generous servings (check out their homepage) but it is such a deception! Almost all of my samples were foil packets and as you can see, pretty low in value. Thankfully I only paid $7 and change with the Living Social deal, but I do not have a dishwasher or a bathtub so those items are completely useless to me. If I had paid full price for this subscription, I would be canceling immediately.
Also, Conscious Box has a retail section--but NONE of the products I received in my box are available for purchase on their page. They offer 10 points per review and 100 points = $1 off a purchase, but I do not see myself buying any of the extremely expensive products they offer for purchase that I will not receive samples of in my boxes. It just seems like they receive samples from random companies to send out to customers without the intent of sending items that would promote purchasing from their website.
I have seen a preview of my May II box (thanks for the unwanted spoiler, Conscious Box) and I am not sure that this next one will be any better, but stay tuned for the outcome!
After about a month of waiting, 4 emails, and nearly 10 phone calls, I finally received my April Glossybox this week. The one time I was able to get a CSR @ Glossybox to answer the phone they said "Oh! You never received your shipping confirmation?" and my response was no, and there is no history on my account to suggest that I was even meant to receive the April box I paid for. She sent me an e-mail that said it had been "sent the day before" but it still took me almost 2 weeks to receive it. This did not start me off on the right foot with them, and I am indifferent with the items I received in the box. The main reason why I purchased it in the first place was to receive the free BeautyBlender (which retails for $20 by itself) so paying $21 for the box was reasonable. Unfortunately, I was charged for the May box before I received the April one and I am now stuck with an extra month (however it is Bergdorf Goodman-themed so it may be fun!) Here is a pic of what I received in my box:
CALDREA Tea Olive Lime Body Wash (Full size-$18) Sample value-$1.50
bellapierre Super Gloss Lip Gloss in Vanilla Pink Full size! $24
Aqua Spa relax Body Creme in Lavender + Chamomile (Full size-$10) Sample value-$1.50
LASplash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base (Full size-$4.49 on sale) Sample value-$4.49
Ciate Nail Polish in Skinny Dip (glitter orange) Full size! $15
Bonus! Original Beautyblender (Full size-$19.95)
Overall value: $66.50
Size compared to Birchbox:
Shoreline Boutique restocked their best Bow Bikinis this afternoon and I finally bought one! These sell out every time they're posted and I am glad I was able to snag the "Royals" one in my size! They're tie back and the bottoms are rouched so I suggest going up a size :) I ordered at 5:45pm and already had shipping confirmation by 6:05pm!
Plus I got 10% off my entire order with code "SHORELINEREPASHLEY" so the bikini's are only $35!!
I ordered my Julep Maven Welcome Box on Monday and it's already here! (Huge bonus points, Julep!-- I ordered my Glossybox over 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't shipped....) Anyways, I paid $10 for EVERYTHING in this box and I am already obsessed with the quality and application of these polishes. I tried Florence and had coverage with 1 coat! Totally worth the investment and even if you don't subscribe to receive boxes you can still purchase some polishes for as little as $2.99, although I recommend doing the Welcome Box + add-ons to get free shipping (and you can cancel after you receive it!) They also sent me 2 free mini file blocks and a coupon for 50% off my next purchase. Alright Julep, you got me ;) Remember to use code "freebox" at checkout to receive the welcome box for free!
