Conscious Box April 2013 Review

IMG_1463

One of my favorite boxes!! :] Conscious Box is full of awesome products that are all natural and good for the earth! It’s $19.95/month and worth every penny (at least to me!) I love discovering all the cool new brands and products that I get to sample from these boxes. They usually send a large(er) supply of goodies every month compared to all the other boxes that I get. This month, 12 new products wooooo hoo!! :]

As usual, I didn’t get a list of the products inside emailed me to me, so that is one thing I don’t like. They do send you an inspirational little card and also a postcard, this one just covered in their 10% coupon.

KLUTCHclub March 2013 Review

IMG_1029

This month’s KLUTCHclub box was pretty great, and of course this happens the month that I cancel my subscription. It is one of the pricer boxes I get at $17/month, but the first two boxes I received (January and February) weren’t worth the money (to me I mean). They boast “$50 of the best healthy snacks, supplements, fitness programs, personal-care products, and more”, and although most of the products I received were pretty cool, some of the “programs” that are “worth” the most money were just pointless to me. It was like I was getting maybe the $17 back for the products, and then they send gift cards for random stuff I wouldn’t use for $20 or $30 some dollars. THIS MONTH HOWEVER, the 2 programs they give gift cards to are pretty cool and I love most all the other stuff too!

Let’s get to the box!!!

Nice big booklet of information about the products included

Item #1) Skinny Pop 100-Calorie Popcorn Snack 
Retail value: $3.69, 4.4 oz

IMG_1033

Item #2) Lumosity.com 1 month giftcard 
Retail value: $14.95 for the month 
I thought this was kind of silly. I’ve seen commercials for the company, about how it helps you “train your brain”, and always thought “Who the heck would pay money for this?!” BUUUUUUT now that I have a free month of it, I checked out the website and it looks kinda cool! I won’t be renewing it and paying for it next month, but I think it’ll be fun. It says that after just 10 hours of working on stuff, you can see improvements in the areas that you needed the most help on (for me, that will be memory).

Item #3) Lacote USA Guam Beauty Mud Cellulite Treatment 
Retail value: $69.00, 17.64 oz.

Item #4) Cocoa Via, Daily Cocoa Extract Supplement 
Unsweetened Dark Chocolate, 1o packets
Retail value: $39.95 for 30 count box

IMG_1037

Item #5) Aligned Signs.com $30 Gift, 1 month worths 
I had no idea what this was and it looked super weird… but then I checked out the website and it was completely fantastic! It looks pretty cool, it’s sopposed to help you get to know yourself better and stuff… It just seems pretty interesting :]

Item #6) Juice Beauty, Hydrating Mist 
Retail value: $22.00, 6.75 oz. 
I already got this in my ipsy Glambag this month, making me think that this product was being given away for free like crazy.

Dark 70%, 1.2 oz
Retail value: $35.84, pack of 10

This looks pretty awesome. It has no scent, you just splash a little water on and then use it to block odor. The only ingredients are natural mineral salts.

Retail value: $2.95 for a box of 8

I think I got my money’s worth for this box, and I’m really happy about it! I know I cancelled my subscription, but that’s only because I’m currently unemployed and need to cut back on some stuff…. maybe in a couple months I’ll try them out again! These 3 months were pretty fun with them tho! :]
