September Eco-Emi Box

Eco-Emi is a monthly subscription service for that sends a minimum of 5 eco-friendly/conscious products to your door for $15 a month w/shipping included.  The products range from beauty, household, food, etc.  I really enjoy the variety of items they send.  It's not just food, beauty etc.  You get a little bit of everything. It's something everyone is your house could enjoy.  My eco-emi boxes are always nicely packaged and chock-full of goodies. 

The good:

Price: Eco-friendly product samples can be difficult to find.  I appreciate being able to try these products for a fraction of the price of purchasing full size. 

Eco-friendly: Every little bit helps

Variety: Not just beauty products.  You get food, home, drinks, etc.

Want more: Sometimes they have left over boxes that they sell after the subscriptions have been sent out.  The cost of these is $15 w/shipping included.  Kinda cool if you really like or know someone that would really like that months box. 

Information: They put a card in every box with information on the products as well as the price.  

The not so good:

Skip a month:  There is a feature where you can put your account on pause.  I'm waiting to hear more info on that.  

Payment: You have to set up a recurring payment through PayPal.  I don't like this because PayPal makes you use your PayPal balance before they take money from your checking/credit card.  I like to save my PayPal balance for misc eBay purchases. 

Look how pretty the fall colors are.  There's even a matching satin bag!

September treasures!

Contents of box with retail price listed:

4 oz. bottle of Safonique Lavender Sea laundry detergent. Value = $0.48 (50 oz bottle $5.97)

1 pack of 3 Sencha Green Tea Leaf Mints. Value = $0.15 (300 ct. bag $15.00) - 3 mints are equal to a cup of green tea.  I don't think they made my breath minty fresh but if it's same as a cup of tea that's pretty cool. 
Yogi Skin Detox Green Tea. Value = $0.31 (16 bag $4.99)

Yogi Blueberry Slim Life Green Tea. Value = $0.31 (16 bags $4.99)

Angel Crisp candy bar. Value = $1.79 (12 ct. $21.49)

10 pack of Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes. Value = $3.00

Good Fortune Peppermint Lip Balm. Value = $4.00

1 oz. bag Crum Creek Soy Nut Mix. Value = $0.55 (10 packs $5.50)

.25 oz. Sparklehearts Bubbling Blooms Body Wash. Value = $0.25 (10 oz. $10.00)

.25 oz. Sparklehearts Soft Conditioner. Value =  $0.25 (10 oz. 9.99)

.07 oz. Biao Beauty Rejuvenating Night Creme. Value = $0.43 (4 oz. $24.50)

small pot .25 oz? Silken Earth Powder Blush by Aubrey Organics in Honey Bronze (3g $11.95)

The total value of this month's box is $11.52 not including the blush.  This is a little low for this box usually their values are higher.  This months box contained lots of little samples.  I am looking forward to trying to laundry detergent.  I thought it was weird they sent a sample of conditioner but no shampoo.  The angel crisp candy bar looks tasty.  The little satin bag that was included is really pretty.  It will make a great gift holder. 

Verdict: great all around box with lots of variety.

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Eco-Emi.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
