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.
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.

The total value of this box is $15.97 not including the body butter and eye shadow. I would guess those products add at least a couple of dollars to the value. I've received the All Natural Face products before and I really enjoy them. The color of the shadow is a sparkly pink and I know I'm going to love it. Really there was nothing in this box that I won't use. Madecasse chocolate is fantastic and I've had this flavor before. The picture on the face mask cracks me up. I think I'm going to see if I can recreate that look with some basil leaves and some lavender flowers and scare the boyfriend.
Verdict: great all around box with lots of variety.
