Eco Emi Box Review December 2013!!!

Hey guys! Today I have a review of my December Eco Emi box! Eco Emi is only $15 a month and they send out mostly deluxe sample sized eco friendly, cruelty free products every month! Most of them are beauty related, but I have gotten a few non beauty related items as well. Plus Eco Emi usually packs their boxes every month! I think I usually get 5+ products, which is great!

Also I just want to say they have amazing customer service! They were selling mystery boxes a couple weeks ago and I ended up missing the deadline, but they said that you could email them to see if they had any left, and within minutes of emailing them I got a reply and was able to order my box! Also they ship on time every month, usually during the third week, and they ship Priority so you get it quick!

They ship in priority boxes, but they always decorate the inside of the boxes nicely! I love all the ribbons and the bag is super nice too!

This is their information cards.

The first item is a Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter from The Party Fairy. This goes for $4.75. I love fun shaped cookie cutters, and I don't have many! Me and Gabe are totally going to be baking some cookies soon and I'll make sure to use this! Mine is a bit crooked though, but I'm not to worried about it since it is still obviously in the shape of a tree.

The next item is Seed Paper by Plantables and Paper. This goes for $.75. I've gotten a lot of seeds recently, so I'm going to have a lot of planting to do this spring! I've never used seed paper though (and this one grows wildflowers), so I'm excited to try this (when there isn't inches of snow on the ground.)

The next items are two Blum Naturals Exfoliating Daily Cleansing Towelettes. These go for $.75. I actually have a big package of Blum Naturals towelettes hanging around some where, but they aren't the same as these. I remember not being super in love with them though, but I'll give these a try.

The next item is a Natural Herbal Decongestant from Sage's Aromatherapy and Oils. I'm estimating this to be worth about $4.37. This smells very herbally with a hint of mint. I'm not sure if this actually works, since I haven't had a cold since I've gotten it, but I will totally try this the next time I have one!

Then I got a Whitelighter Eye Shadow by Brija Cosmetics. This goes for $1.32. This is a nice shimmery yellow color. I'll probably use it as a highlighter in my inner corner or possibly under my brow bone depending on how yellowish it looks on my skin. I love trying out indie eyeshadows, and while I'm excited to try this, I wish they'd given out a different color.

Then there is a Winter Wonderland Goat Milk Soap by Omniio. This goes for $1.16. I love how this smells! It smells like cinnamon and nutmeg and brown sugar! I also really like goat milk soap since it's usually more on the hydrating side, so I can't wait to try this out!

Then I got a OCD Hand Sanitizer in Candy Cane Fluff from Fortune Cookie Soap. This is full size and goes for $2.89. I love Fortune Cookie Soap so I was super excited to see this! I carry hand sanitizer around in my purse, so I think I'll switch out the one I'm currently using for this one. It doesn't smell super candy cane like, but it also doesn't smell like plain old hand sanitizer either, however I'm still not sure I completely love the smell.

The last item is Aah Bath Soak by Wash. This goes for $1.50. I love how the label on this looks! I love how this smells, it smells like mint, but also somewhat floraly and I think it would be totally refreshing after a stressful day

All totalled my box has a value of $17.49. While that's not like an incredible value, it is more then the cost of the box. Plus it is a great assortment of products, and I like that I get to try so many different things. I also love that they feature so many different brands, from indie brands, Etsy stores, and even a more well known brand. I really love the variety and I'd totally recommend Eco Emi to anyone! I'm continually impressed with them and I think that if I could only have one box, I'd totally choose them!

  1. eco-emi is one of all time favorite subs and I have never been disappointed by their boxes. If I had to choose one as well, they would be it too!
