November 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 that month.    

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 is what I saw when I opened the box. I didn't know what the big red flower was but I knew I would love it!

All the treasures. The big read flower is a super cute headband. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

Chandra Dry Perfume by Chamelagiri. Value = $4.00 - Interesting product. Smells like a combination of cloves and incense. 

1 oz. tin Pumpkin Pout Lip Balm by Tulips Apothecary. Value = $8.00 - doesn't have a real strong pumpkin smell. I do like the way it feels, goes on smooth and leaves a nice shine. 

.53 oz. bag of Peppermints by St. Claire's Organics. Value = $1.19

Night Owl Greeting Card printed on sustainably harvested wood. Value - $4.00 - really cute card and I love that it's printed on wood. 

2 oz. bottle Squeaky Clean Shampoo by Sparklehearts. Value = $3.25

Red Flower Headband by Anna. Value = $9.00 - adorable! I can't wait to wear it!

Whipped Shea Butter with Kalahari Melon Seed Oil by Shea Radiance. Value = $?? - This is a pretty small sample. I've used this brand and scent before and I love the spice smell it has. 

Midnight Dark Drinking Chocolate by Kitsune Tea. Value = $2.29

The total value of  this box is approximately $31.73 plus a little more for the lotion. I thought this box was full of super fun stuff. I just adore the headband. I really hope it stays in place and doesn't slip off. I honestly think my head is shaped funny because I have the worst luck with headbands. The greeting card is so cute and I really want to send it but it's almost too cute to giveaway. I've tried the sparklehearts shampoo before and wasn't too impressed with it. I wonder if it would be good for my dog since it has no bad stuff in it. I'll have to check that out. I can't wait to enjoy the drinking chocolate. I opened this box at work and was tempted to try it but didn't have marshmallows. If I'm going to splurge on drinking chocolate I'm going all out and having marshmallows also! The dry perfume is very interesting. The directions say to tap a small amount into the palm of your hand, rub your hand together, bring your hands to your face and inhale deeply, then rub your hands on your wrists. I found myself smelling my hands every so often and they smelled pretty darn good.

Verdict: Every so often I think about letting this subscription go but then they send a great box like this and I change my mind.
