This subscription is available in the US only.
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.
