December Eco Emi Box

Here's the basics about Eco Emi.  It's a monthly subscription service 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. 

Skip a month:  You can put your account on pause if you want to skip.    

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

The not so good:

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. 

December treasures!

FULL SIZE Organic Indulgence Chocolate Mint Lip Butter. Value = $2.95

1.75 oz. Willamette Valley Vanilla Bean Granola Chips. Value = $1.41 (6.2 oz. $4.99) - these were really good and I could taste the vanilla in them.

.05 oz. Better Botanicals Apricot Eye Therapy. Value = $1.90 (.5 oz. $18.99)

The total value of  this box is $18.30.  Once again there is a lot of variety in this box.  I could smell the toothpaste before I even opened the box.  I'm not a fan of black licorice so I'm not too sure about brushing my teeth with it.  Of course I will use all the face scrubs, lotion and perfume.  I have the dental stuff from another box but I keep forgetting to try it.    

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.
