June Eco-Emi Box

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 and ships from St. Peters, Missouri

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. 

This months box was planned around the 4th of July. The bandanna was wrapped around all the products.

All the Eco-Emi treasures!

 Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

FULL SIZE Badger Cuticle Care with Soothing Shea Butter. Value = $5.99

FULL SIZE The All Natural Face Vegan Lip and Cheek in Peachy Rose. Value = $4.00

1.5 oz. Beanitos Black Bean Chips Chipotle BBQ Chips. Value = $0.66 - I like Beanitos but the word chipotle scared me. The boyfriend ate them and said it they were good.

Botanical Interests Wheatgrass Organic Heirloom Seeds. Value = $1.69

US Flag bandanna. - I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this but the boyfriend snatched it right up. I forget he wears bandannas under his helmet when he rides his motorcycle. Awesome!

The total value of  this box is $22.09. The card said this box was filled with amazing items for your holiday gatherings. I'm not sure that's the case but there were some pretty cool items in this box. I am constantly picking at my cuticles. I absolutely can't stand it when they are the slightest bit dry and when they get that way I pick at them. Bad I know but this is wear cuticle cream comes in handy. I love the stuff! The food items were gone that day. The food items were gone that day. I'm not a fan of wheatgrass but I have an herb garden so I think I'm going to go ahead and plant some seeds, cause why not!. Face cleaning wipes are perfect for me since I use them everyday. I still haven't found anything I like as much as Neutrogena but I'm willing to try new stuff. 

Verdict: Great box this month. Lots of items that I will use.
