January 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. 

January treasures!

Contents of box with retail price listed:

FULL SIZE Organic Pinot Lip Tint by Wine Country Organics. Value = $7.00

20g White Camelia Hydrating Bath Bar by Aubrey Organics. Value = $1.04 (4 oz. $5.95)

Lisa Ann Skin Care Mandarin Body Butter sample. Value = ??

.88 oz. Madecasse Pink Pepper and citrus chocolate. Value = $2.00

Yogi Bedtime tea bag. Value = $0.31 (16 tea bags $4.99)

Yogi Kava Stress Relief tea bag. Value = $0.31 (16 tea bags $4.99)

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.

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