April Eco-Emi

Eco Emi is 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.  They send a really nice variety of items including 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 stuffed full of treasures.

This subscription is available in the US only.

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. 

The items ship in a priority mail flat rate box and this it what it looked like when I opened the box.

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

.25 oz. Oluv Care salve. Value = $5.36

2 oz. Shea Radiance Moisturizing Hair Milk. Value = $3.76

(2) Crystal Essence Unscented deodorant towelettes. Value = $0.50/ea.

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Dahlia Creme Eye Shadow. Value = $9.00

Simply Organic Guacamole Dip. Value = $1.69

Colorganics Organic Hemp Shine Lipshine. Value = $17.25

.2 oz. Rainwater Botanicals Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask. Value = $0.80 - I like mud masks they always feel like they are tightening up my skin and sucking out the ickiness.

Aura Cacia Comforting Geranium Mineral Bath Salts. Value = $3.29

The total value of  this box is $42.15. The high value item in this box is the hemp shine lipshine. I have lots of lip products right now so it will probably be awhile before I use this. I love me some guacamole and I just bought avocados so I see guacamole dip in my future. I love adding bath products to my baths so I will definitely use the bath products. I currently use crystal essence products and I've used the towelettes before which are ok but I prefer the spray bottle. I'm going a beach vacation this summer so I think I will save the moisturizing hair milk for my trip to help with the dryness that ocean air and chlorine can cause.

Verdict: I really enjoy the eco emi box. It includes products I don't normally see when I'm out and about.
