September Vegan Conscious Box Review

The winner of my Vegan Conscious Box giveaway, Bev, was kind enough to provide me with her thoughts on the first-ever vegan box.  Check them out below!

  • Funky Monkey Freeze-Dried Fruit in "Purple Funk" - Didn't like the texture of these, not a dried fruit fan I guess.
  • Happy Squeeze Orange Mango Coconut Milk - This was very good!
  • Artisana Goji & Milk Thistle Nut Butter - YUM!
  • Teeccino Maya Herbal Coffee - One large package and two smaller tea bag sizes, the tea bags were good but I don't have a regular coffee maker to try the larger package.
  • Clean Well Disinfectant Wipe - Just a standard wipe in my opinion, it smelled good though.  I cleaned all the doorknobs in the house :)
  • C3 for Stress - I have tried these in other boxes and don't really care for them
  • Kelapo Virgin Coconut Oil - I added this to a smoothie, added that extra coconut flavor
  • Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer - Didn't really care for this or really have any use for it as I don't use pre-workout energizers
  • Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil - I admit I was afraid to try this.  Spraying something like this on my body seemed odd.  I noticed at my massage last night that they had the same stuff but I forgot to ask about it.
  • Madecasse Chocolates - Two small bars.  These were good, but I think I'm just used to regular chocolates, so for me these had a bitter aftertaste.
  • Vaska Laundry Detergent - I have tried this before and I like it.
  • Hurraw! Coconut Lip Balm - I really like to try different lip balms and this was good, although it didn't have much staying power.
  • 100% Pure Cabernet Grape Nourishing Body Cream - Two small packages.  Love, love, love this stuff!  I could see myself purchasing this.
  • There were several coupons/inserts as well: $5 gift certificate for Core Defender Meal (got one in my regular Conscious Box also), 25% off the Ancient Minerals, $10 credit for, a couple inserts having to do with the founder of Vega, 20% discount for the Madecasse website, and $1 off any Vaska product.

Bev says, "It was like Christmas getting this vegan box and my regular Conscious Box.  I love trying all these new items and finding new favorites."  Thanks again to Bev for sharing her review!
