Grove Collaborative Subscription Box Review + Coupon – August 2016

Box: Grove Collaborative (this link gives you $10 and me $10 when you sign up)!

Contents: Curated and/or self-selected eco-friendly products such as Cleaning, Laundry, Hand and Body, Face and Hair, Kids, Scent Free, Oral Care, etc. to ship when you want it (monthly and on demand)! Some of the Brands carried are Seventh Generation, Acure Organics, Method, Mrs. Meyers, Molly’s Suds, and house brand Grove Collaborative.

And they have CANDLES! *still on a candle kick*

Cost: Price of your items (usually discounted) plus $2.99 shipping (waived if you are a VIP member see more details below).

Kick Back and Get Comfortable: 

I LOVE the service that Grove Collaborative offers. Every item that I received was either a promotional free item or discounted. I will keep a lookout for more promos and let you know! Most of the products that I bought were not found on discount via my beloved Amazon. Because I wanted to avoid passing Target and paying $200, we would buy our cleaning products on Home Depot (which were not discounted at all).

We all know how I want to save money in the comfort of my own home.

I found signing up was easy. Grove Collaborative asks a few questions and then curates a box for you. You can then feel free to delete and add items as you wish.

There is a $2.99 shipping charge BUT if you sign up for VIP status, the shipping fee is waived! So while you are shopping look into the VIP trial because you receive free shipping for two months and then you pay $19.99 for a year. In addition to VIP status, you will receive freebies amounting to five (5!) full size items within a year so $19.99 pays for itself in (1) free shipping, (2) five full size items and (3) the already discounted savings on items purchased!!! And if you forget to add the VIP trial to your order (like I did) the VIP trial option appears after you place your first order. And then if you forget that, I am sure the awesome customer service will take of you!


Once you make an order you can set up to change when you want your next delivery and what products you want for that delivery. Grove Collaborative will send advance email reminders and a text reminder (if you give your cell) when a monthly box is scheduled so you can make any modifications to that order. Also a week after you sign up, you will be able to “purchase now” if you need something now.

Note on Customer Service:

Not only is customer service awesome, make sure you look under the customer service representative’s signature because there might be a link with a coupon to one of their favorite products. You know me and codes and coupons.

I also was recently sent an email blast from Grove Collaborative with some points that they wanted their customers to be aware of and if you are not happy with a product they will compensate you! How awesome is that!?!

An other awesome plus is that if there is a promo for new customers, Grove Collaborative usually also rewards continuing customers with a promo as well!

Codes and/or Coupons for new and continuing customers = A Happy and Loyal Pnut



If you remember from my last month’s post, I received an email assigning me to my Grove ambassador (associate, customer service representative, possible therapist).

I am sure these ambassadors are joking around and acting all “ambassadorial” on the quiet days.

I digress, there were product suggestions so I had to click all the links and they were items discounted upon discount! Discount upon discount? Twist both my arms!



My assistant de jour, the weeist of my Pnut people, Squeakette!


Oh hai there!


Ummm not a nom Squeakette!



Yes Squeakette, I am sure it is not a nom!


Well… Ok if you say so. It still looks nomable.


Acure Organics – Argan Cell Stimulating Body Wash

Acure Organics – Argan Cell Stimulating Body Wash –  I love anything Acure its an awesome brand. But I am confused as to why an almond scent is considered energizing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the scent but I has something minty or zingy in mind when it comes to marketing an energized scented product.

Note: this may be a body wash but it makes great bubbles for a bubble bath! Just ask Squeakette who made a mess at lunchtime followed up by a happy spit up incident.


Method – Foaming Body Wash

Method – Foaming Body Wash in Water Flower – Squeakette thinks I have enough body wash. She may be right but this is my only second foaming body wash 😉 This smells of water lilies and I will share this with my squeakers.

Sharing is caring. 


Method – Dish Soap in Sea Minerals

Method – Dish Soap in Sea Minerals

Dish soap in an ocean scent? Yes please! I love anything ocean scented and I do hope that Method expands this sea minerals scent to other products they sell. Huge fan here!

I prefer to swim in ocean scents (then drown in eyeliner, mascara, and other subscription box repeats)!


Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray in Tangelo Palm Frond

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray in Tangelo Palm Frond – This was needed because I needed a summer air/linen freshener. The scent of tangelo was very refreshing and the background palm scent was more of a green scent in the distant background. When we do not have guests (or forget lol) it hangs rests on a guest towel rod rack away from my Pnut people’s reach.

Silly Squeakers, Linen and Room Sprays are for Linen and Rooms. 



Verdict: As you can tell from the picture, Squeakette is a tough judge. But she approves of her momma’s haul! I am happy to have the opportunity to stockpile awesome brands at a great discount. I highly recommend Grove Collaborative for the savings and remember to click all the lnks for more savings!

      I might get balls in next month’s order. I am down to two balls. I need to crosscheck with the Amazon. Or if I really need (dryer) balls in my life. Stay tuned.

      • August 16, 2016 at 5:09 pm

        LOL I simple love to hear all about your balls Pnut because they rest on my mind…. heh

        • August 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm

          Ahhhh! The peer pressure was real until I just looked up the balls Grove Colloborative had and its a set of three. No dice. If I order balls they must come in pairs.

      Thanks LC! It must be innate reviewing boxes with the combination of tips from her sisters! I did another Grove Collobarative review with Squeakette wearing a tutu.

    Hehe, oh tiny Squeakette! I love it.

    “I prefer to swim in ocean scents (then drown in eyeliner, mascara, and other subscription box repeats)!” Sooo true! And I want some Caldrea spray now! Whenever I see that line in Target I get caught off guard because it’s close to my name and I feel like it’s calling me over!

    • August 28, 2016 at 8:54 pm

      Get it! I was so psyched to have my first Caldrea product since its sold at Williams Sonoma and I want to shop from there but really don’t unless its to buy that peppermint bark on clearance. Nom.
