Conscious Box – June 2013

I love trying new products but I HATE wasting money on products that I end up not loving after I try them. I hate wasting money and product! Conscious Box is the perfect solution! Every month I receive a little cute, preciously packaged box filled with all kinds of goodies from companies that are as earth conscious, eco-friendly, green, ethical and sustainable as I am (or as I try to be). If you love trying new products like I do and are always searching for new ones to try, Conscious Box is a great way to try them all! (I currently have three bottles of products in my shower that are not to my liking and I’m just trying to use them up so they don’t go to waste!)

Greek Island Labs Natural Alternative Health

Embrace better health with Greek Island Labs. Made with natural and organic ingredients, Greek Island Labs topical blend and supplements support better joint, colon, and digestive health. Simple, safe, and effective.

The product included in my CB was for colon cleansing and I don’t think I’ll be trying that out.

Packed with wholesome ingredients, made in a delicious Apple Cinnamon flavor, and serving as an excellent source of protein, fiber, and vitamins, each Skout Bar keeps your body energized and mind focused.

Pretty much tasted like and was the texture of cardboard.

I used this after I shaved my legs and and loved it!  Great product!


volcanic bliss

Trying to get clearer skin naturally? You’ve just stumbled upon the most purifying experience we’ve ever had. Made with olive, coconut, neem, tea tree, rosemary, and charcoal, Molly Muriel’s Volcanic Bliss bar exfoliates, cleanses, and nourishes your skin. Plus, you’ll experience a invigoratingly refreshing aromatic experience!

Love at first lather! This seemed very odd to me at first seeing that it is a BLACK bar of soap, but was excited to try it!  We’ll see over time but I hope it helps because I’ve been on the hunt for a magical natural solution. I loved the initial clean feeling that it gave my skin. We have relatively soft water so people with more mineralized (hard) water might not find the same results.  STAY TUNED FOR A GIVEAWAY!!!


soft as silk
Made in small batches with only the most natural ingredients, Molly Muriel makes it easy to embrace better health through personal care. Made with murumuru butter, coconut, jojoba, and sweet almond, Molly Muriel’s Soft as Silk Shampoo bar leaves your hair moisturized and looking lustrous.

I was a little skeptical of the Shampoo Bar concept but it left my hair feeling very clean unlike other natural shampoos I’ve tried. It seems as though I’m on and endless search to find a natural product that doesn’t leave my fine hair dull and lifeless. I have very dry scalp so we’ll see how it goes. First impression was that I liked it! 



Add a burst of sweet, fruity flavor to your normal (boring!) bottle of water! Made with organic lemon, agave syrup, orange, and hibiscus, Organic Flavrz All Natural Liquid Drink Mix provides a deliciously simple boost of immune-system supporting nutrients and antioxidants. Go ahead! Make a splash into better health!


naturesbabyBorn from a labor of love, Nature’s Baby Organics products are pure, natural, safe, and always leave skin feeling soft to the touch. Cruelty free, vegan, and made with organic ingredients like Aloe, cucumber, and chamomile, Nature’s Baby Organics is the perfect bath time companion for all skin types – from mom and dad’s to the sensitive skin of the little ones!

I enjoyed Nature’s Baby Organics Shampoo & Body Wash in Vanilla Tangerine. I liked the way it didn’t take much to lather it up into my daughter’s hair. She’s 22 months. I loved that it was more of a gel consistency rather a runny liquid that drips out of your hand as you’re applying it. The scent wasn’t too overpowering. Left my daughter’s fine wavy hair manageable.

Rated a 1 on the Skin Deep Database by the Environmental Working Group.

My daughter didn’t care for this much.  But then again, she’s a picky eater and is only 2.


With warm summer nights already upon us, now’s the time to start planning your relaxing evenings. Here’s a $50 Wine Gift Cards from our friends over at Naked Wines. (Not a fan of the vine? This makes a perfect, easy to give gift!)

I went online to try to use this and was very disappointed.  The minimum quantity of bottles you can order is 6 which costs at least $100.  I’d still be spending $50 on wine that I’m not even sure to enjoy or drink.  We’re not huge wine connoisseurs in our house.  I could have given them as gifts, but I’d rather give a gift that’s sure to be enjoyed.


Gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and dairy free, we’re head over heels for LARABAR’s new ALT Bar. Packed with protein without the all too expected protein-y taste, ALT provides your body with lasting, sustainable energy. Perfect as an afternoon snack or for on the trail!
