I was really excited when Conscious Box reached out to me a few weeks ago to giveaway a free subscription box (congrats Shanta!) and I'm even more excited to share my first conscious box with you. It was chock full o' goodies and was actually pretty heavy! I'm frankly surprised at how much they were able to fit in there! I discovered some products I LOVE and some..not so much!
***Orgain Healthy Kids Organic Nutritional Shake: Made with organic fruits & veggies, packed with protein, & free of GMOs, corn syrup, or artificial junk. This was actually REALLY delicious! Before I knew it, I was sucking up air and wanting more! If you don't mind the taste of soy, this is up your alley and I will definitely be on the lookout for these :)
Somersaults Cinnamon Crunch: Somersaults Snacks have created a deliciously nut-free blend of crunchy nuggets baked to perfection. All natural & made with simple ingredients, these snacks are packed with protein while being lower in fat than traditional alternatives. These snacks weren't overly sweet but did have that cardboard taste I somewhat expected. I won't be purchasing these in the future.
A. Vogel Herbamre Original: Sea salt combined with 12 freshly harvested, organically grown herbs and vegetables. Made with simple ingredients like sea salt, chives, garlic, basil, rosemary, and thyme, each dash of Herbamare will add spunk to any culinary creation! I rubbed this on a chicken breast and was pleased with it's light and very mild flavor.
BIJA Gentle Senna Tea: The Senna bush's leaves help stimulate healthy digestive movement & encourages the body's natural ability to eliminate the unnecessary. Hints of licorice, peppermint, flax, & other herbs make this a delightful experience for all tea drinkers. I'm not a big tea drinker so I honestly haven't tried this yet.
Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste: Breaking the trend of pseudo-natural toothpaste, Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste is truly safe, made without glycerin, fluoride, artificial coloring, & foaming agents. So healthy you can eat it- but only if you want to. I got a full size cinnamon tube a sample of their wintergreen, and totally wish it was the other way around. The Cinnamon flavor is not pleasant at all! This toothpaste does not foam up, has a gritty texture, and seems to dissolve before I've brushed my entire mouth. I'm not sure I'll be finishing the cinnamon paste, but didn't mind the wintergreen so much.
****Healthy HooHoo Gentle Feminine Cleanser: PH balanced, fragrance free, paraben free, & free of harsh chemicals or additives, Healthy Hoohoo is made to naturally cleanse girlie parts without removing all the goodness Mother Nature put down there. Made with simple ingredients like Aloe, green tea, cucumber, & pomegranate extract. I LOVE this stuff and wish I had gotten a full size bottle of this product. It is lightweight and have a nice lather. It is also fragrance free and one of my new favorites. In two words: clean and pure.
**Yes to Cucumbers Natural Suncreen: Easily absorbed for maximum skin protection, Yes to Cucumbers natural sunscreen is made with organic cucumber seed extract and natural ingredients to offer a healthier alternative to chemical based sunscreens and sprays. I used this sunscreen for my beach trip and safe to say, I have no ugly tan lines from my water shoes or shorts :) It has a pleasant smell and cooling effect. This is a thumbs up for me.
Ultima Replenisher Everyday Healthy Drink: Made with real fruit, Ultima Replenisher is the ideal daily health booster for anyone on the go. Plant-based, naturally sweet, & without worry of artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. Oh, did we mention it's also vegan & non-GMO. I haven't tried this and I don't know why because I could really use a boost sometimes. My brain and body generally don't clock in until after noon :(
MRM Relax-All with Phenibut: Formulated with nature in mind, MRM Relax-All is the perfect aid for relaxation & heightened mental tranquility. Made with natural herbal extracts & nutritional compounds, MRM Relax-All works with your body to reduce stress & bring you back to balance. Since I used up all the dream shots, I'm saving this one for later use ;)
Ecover Automatic Dishwasher Tablets (not pictured): These completely biodegradable, phosphate-free dishwasher tablets from Ecover are the safe, natural solution for getting your dishes done without worry of exposing them to harsh chemicals or cleansers. If any one has a spare dishwasher, please let me know. Until I will pass these along to a friend ;)
