March 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 was in the March "Girls Just Want to Have Fun!" box when I opened it. The pink bag also had treasures in it. 

This is what was in the pink bag. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

Kitts Kernel Red Popcorn. Value = $2.00??

The Lano Company 2N1 Lip Therapy and Cuticle Treatment. Value = $5.00

Karitex Shea Butter. Value = $10.00

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Waterproof Makeup Remover. Value = $0.42

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Nail Polish Remover Pad. Value = $0.59

Purely You Minerals Dawn Lip Gloss. Value = $8.00

Kuli Kuli Almond Bar. Value = $2.89

The total value of  this box is approximately $28.90. I'm a little confused by the shea butter. It's vacuum sealed in plastic and I'm wondering what's going to happen when I cut it open. I'm thinking I'll need to put it in some sort of airtight container. The popcorn seeds are really pretty. I'll be really curious to see if there is a taste difference. I will use the nail polish and makeup remover pads. I'll probably put them in my travel bag. The lip gloss is a really pretty color. The 2n1 product is perfect for me. I'm a big user of cuticle oil and can always use a lip gloss. It seems weird though to use something on my hands then my lips. I guess I'll need to make sure I have clean hands before using it.

Verdict: This box had some great new products for me to try and it had a great value.
