August 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. 

August Eco Emi box.

 Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

.2 oz. Valenti Organics Carrot, Grapefruit & Egyptian Geranium Rose Body Lotion. Value = $0.53 - this was Nice and thick and didnt have a strong floral scent. 

.2 oz. Valenti Organics Cafe Machiatto Body Oil. Value = $1.05 - this was a nice oil that wasn't too heavy. I could really smell the cocoa/coffee but it smelled nice. 

.?? Craftmansoap Natural Lemongrass Soap with French Yellow Clay. Value = $1.63

3g. Eat Green Tea Edible Green Tea. Value = $0.75

1.19 oz. Artisana raw organic walnut butter. Value = $1.69

1 bag Home Free Treat Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies. Value = $1.49 - these were actually pretty good. 

Bakers Confections Wooden Spoons. Value = $0.55/ea.

Gourmet Body Treats Natural Eye Shadow in Gun Metal Gray. Value = $??

CoCo LacQuer Tiffany color nail polish. Value = $6.00

The total value of  this box is approximately $14.24.  I had never heard of the Valenti products before. I liked both the lotion and body oil. The gluten free cookies were ok but I thought they were a little dry. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the mini spoons. Maybe I will put them in my lunch bag for yogurt. The nailpolish is cute but I would disagree thats it's a Tiffany blue color. Tiffany blue is very distinctive. I haven't used the eyeshadow yet because I'm trying to finish up what I have. I'm a little worried the gray will be too dark but maybe it goes on light.

Verdict: This months box was a break even box in value but the products were cool.
