December 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. 

I love how every package is always packed so pretty. 

All the goodies. There is even a tree cookie cutter in the box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

1 oz. Winter Wonderland Goat Milk Soap by Omniio. Value = $1.17

(2) Exfoliating Daily Cleansing Towelettes by Blum Naturals. Value = $0.50

Natural Herbal Decongestant Salve by Sage Aromatherapy. Value = $8.75

Seed Paper by Plantables and Paper. Value = $0.75

Tree Cookie Cutters by The Party Fairy. Value = $4.75

Candy Cane Hand Sanitizer by Fortune Cookie Soap. Value = $2.89

Aah Bath Soak by Wash. Value = $1.50

Whitelighter Eye Shadow by Brija Cosmetics. Value = $??

The total value of  this box is approximately $20.31. I wasn't super excited about the items this month. I really enjoyed the packaging though! The big ticket item is the decongestant salve but we hardly ever get sick so I'm not sure when I will use this. I may pass it on to my nephew though. He's 8 and always picking up some icky stuff at school. I will definitely use the bath salts, soap, eyeshadow and cleansing cloths. I'm thinking of making little on the go bag and fill it with things like this hand sanitizer, lip balm, lotion and goodies like that. Something you can throw in your travel bag and go! The cookie cutter is cute but I'm shocked that it's almost $5. I usually buy my cookie cutters at Sur La Table and they good quality and $1.25.

Verdict: Not a fantastic box but not terrible either. I will definitely use most of the items.
