May 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.  They also offer 3 ($14 a month), 6 ($13 a month) and 12 month ($12 a month) plans. These have to be paid upfront but each one offers a discount. 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 worldwide (prices higher outside the US) 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 and Storenvy purchases.

May Eco Emi Vintage Theme Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

Aura Cacia Chill Pill Essential Oil, lavender & chamomile. Value = $10.99 - This says to use in a diffuser but if you don't have one you can put some on a tissue and inhale. It does smell really good and I can always use natural relaxation so I'm going to try it at night. 

Glee Gum Wild Watermelon Sugar-Free Gum. Value = $1.09 - I'm not a fan of Glee Gum. 

Ellbee's Sundried Italian Dip. Value = $5.00

Suncoat nail polish. Value $8.99

(3) Anna Natural Tea bags in Energize, Sweet Dreams & Cycle Ease. Value = $0.46/ea.

Body Brana Strawberries & Cream Facial Mask. Value = $10.50

Small Sample of Beazers Garden Berry Body Scrub. Value = $??

The total value of  this box is approximately $37.95. The dip looks delicious and easy to make. Just mix it with sour cream and cream cheese and done. The face mask looks like it could be messy. I think I will save that one for when I'm taking a bath. The suncoat nail polish is a nice bronze color. The boyfriend hates and I mean hates the smell of nail polish. This says it's water based so there is no smell. I'm definitely going to test it out and see if he notices. I took the Glee Gum to work, I'm sure someone will grab it. I took the bottle of essential oil with me to bed last night and took a couple of deep inhales from the bottle. After about the fifth inhale it became a little overpowering. I don't know if it worked, but it surely didn't hurt.

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