Grove Collaborative Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 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


I noticed when I was stalk tracking my Grove Co box one of their advertisements  on the tracking page was for the VIP program features. One of the features was “price matching”!

Online Price Matching be still my heart!!!


Anyway, the weeist of my Pnut people, Squeakette, wants me to get started on the review

so let us indulge our little assistant!

imageHAI THERE!!!

imageLet’s Get Started!!!

image-Diggin’ In-



NOW Lavender Essential Oil

Squeakette approved and so do her My Little Ponies on this first item…

NOW Lavender Essential Oil

NOW Lavender Essential Oil –

If you read my last month’s review, I discovered that Grove Collaborative does price matching! So I was able to get this for $5 and change 🙂 I also sent an email to the NOW peeps requesting where their lavender came from and I got a prompt response back stating that the lavender comes from France! It is also important to note that this lavender is diffused from the flower part and not the whole plant so this is a high quality essential oil!

Luckily Squeakette does not think I have too much lavender essential oil 😉

But now I am getting “the look” from Squeakette on my next item…

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray

Momma I am not sure about this…

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray

Ummm… I know I am a “Sweet Pea” momma but don’t we have enough of these room and linen sprays?

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray

And you are telling me that you have ANOTHER scent on order for NEXT MONTH!?!

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray in Sweet Pea

Caldrea – Linen and Room Spray in Sweet Pea

Squeakette thinks I have too many Caldrea Linen and Room Sprays and she may be right. But in my defense it was still on my ambassador’s favorite products and Grove Collaborative ADDED MORE SCENTS!

Like Pokemon, I need to collect them all!!!


f’lint refills
f’lint refills

f’lint refills – Needed some refills for my new lint roller from a recent PopSugar box!

A Subscription service box fulfilling a subscription box item refill. I find this entertaining. It does not take much.


And finally a freebie item from being a VIP member…

Acure foaming shaving gel

Squeakette has requested that I make a bubble bath colored foam as seen on Pinterest for her and her sisters.

Acure foaming shaving gel

Acure foaming shaving gel – I really like this shaving gel. I feel that I can safely make a Pinterest-worthy colored bath foam experience for my squeakers using this! I think using a natural shaving gel may be safer than all that colored soap tubes and containers with all the chemicals.

I try to be crunchie when I can…


A great month with some staples! Got a needed refill from a prior subscription box item. Got my favorite overpriced Lavender Essential Oil price matched back to the good ole days. Dammit for my ambassador and Grove Co for adding more scents to an already discounted awesome product (I added the Sea Salt Neroli as my last Caldrea Room Spray for next month)!!! And I owe my assistant Squeakette’s request for a safe bath foam Pinterest experience with the freebie brand name natural foaming shave gel!

    As usual, Squeakette is too stinking adorable and this was a great review! But I have to admit I was super distracted by the My Little Pony suspended on the wall… How is that stuck on there? Super glue on the feet??

      Thanks Heat!
      The girls had purchased a set of MLPs from a close friend that had outgrown them. These MLP all had one magnetized hoof that she (and the squeakers) would place on refrigerators and other stainless steel appliances. I always meant to look into this more and thanks to you I got the tiny push to delve into it…
      Apparently these are Generation 3 MLPs and the magnet on the one hoof was meant to activate playset items. The hooves are strongly magnetized that they could erase/ruin computers, TVs, and those floppy and hard disks back in the days of yore.

        Hehe I just kept staring at the suspended pony as well!
