October 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.

The total value of  this box is approximately $22.98. I thought this was a pretty good box. I was excited to see the toothbrush because I am always forgetting my toothbrush when we go on vacation. I am going to put this right into my toiletry bag. I like simply organic spices, I just hope this one isn't too spicy. They eye shadow is a pretty color through the container. I'll be honest I'm afraid to open it because the lid is really tight and I'm afraid it's going to explode everywhere. I've tried all kinds of the lip gloss from All Natural Face I can't wait to try the gel eyeliner. The shaving cream is interesting. On the container it says to refrigerate before using (because it is liquid). It hardened up and seems to be staying that way in my normal house temperature. I might plant the pumpkin seeds next year for fall pumpkins.

Verdict: I liked the box this month and am really excited to try the gel eyeliner.
