Mail Time: Vegan Conscious Box December 2012

This month's Conscious Box was curated by the Vegan Zombie, who I love watching every time he pops up in my news feed.

In this box:
  • Baby Ecos Laundry Detergent & Stain Remover
  • Kyi Sweet Almond Softening Oil
  • Parma! Vegan Parmesan
  • L'Ecuyer's Gourmet Dill Dip Mix
  • Just Pure Foods Sour Cream & Onion Zucchini Chips
  • Eye Walker Elements Cabin 108
  • Simply Hemp Milk
  • Achiva Native Energy in Mango
  • Shaman Shack Herbs 3 Immortals (with Reishi, Shilajit & Ormus)
  • Lush Nuts Dark Cocoa Chili Peanuts
  • ZenSociety Tea Tree Facial Cleanser
I have already eaten the Parma and the Lush Nuts.  Both are delicious.  I hardly remember parmesan cheese, so I will simply say I enjoyed this on my farfalle & meatless meatballs, haha.  The Lush Nuts pack a nice little surprise kick.  Not too hot, very, very well balanced with the bittersweet cocoa.

I'm rubbing the Softening Oil on my hands now, and I have to say I think it's working, but it does sting on my windburn a bit (though that could be touch related).  It smells like verbena and I think I like it.  I'm looking forward to trying it mixed with a bit of water as it suggests.

The Eye Walker Elements scent is not a very me scent.  I'm going to have to try it on a day off to report on the wear, OR make Clancy J wear it for me, haha.


  1. I got a non-vegan (beeswax) eyeliner in mine, it's worth mentioning if you do a full review. TVZ told me that it wasn't one of the items they recommended, so I guess someone at CB didn't bother to check labels before throwing in the bonus items.

  2. I was wondering if you had an update on the softening oil. did it make your skin soft? looking for an effective vegan lotion for my uber-dry skin (esp. with this cold we've been having in Northeast!)
