Eco Emi Box Review, February 2014

Eco Emi is a subscription box company that features green eco-friendly products.  You can find all sorts of interesting items in their boxes from cosmetics to bath products, edibles, cleaning products and even occasional home goods.  They usually send sample sizes with occasional full size products like lip glosses and a few coupons. Eco Emi boxes are fun to open because they pack their items in colorful tissue paper, then often sprinkle fun seasonal confetti shapes across the top.

Eco Emi is usually the last box I receive every month. I'm not sure if that's because of the date I originally signed up or if they ship all boxes at the same time. I think of my Eco Emi box as a little birthday present that comes late every month!

February's box contained the usual card that gives information about each product on the back, a 20% off coupon from GoodLight, a 15% off coupon from Lauren Brooke and a $1.00 off coupon for Wild Garden hummus products.

First is a very small sample of Lavish Face Mask by Blissoma which is supposed to be good for dry and stressed skin.  It looks to me like there's only enough product here to try this one time. Also included is a small pump spray bottle of NuStyle Organic Hairspray by Aubrey Organics.

Next are two edible products, Roasted Garlic Hummus Dip from Wild Garden and Ek Chok Chocolate Paste with Vanilla from Premier Organics. I have no idea what to do with the chocolate paste (it says to spread it on flat bread or toast...huh?) but hey...chocolate is chocolate and I'll find a use for this!  I'm thinking it might be really good on a graham cracker.      

There were a couple of cosmetic products in a polka dotted yellow organza gift bag.  One is a lip conditioner by Jersey Shore Sun in "Winter Mint" and the other is a lash conditioner by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques. This product is used at night and promotes longer, healthier lashes.

Last is a box from GoodLight Natural Candles which contains six unscented tea lights. These are paraffin-free clean-burning candles made of 100% palm wax.

Normally I really enjoy Eco Emi boxes but this month's seemed a little lackluster to me. I'm hoping March's box will be a bit more exciting!

Eco Emi's boxes are $15 per month.  For this, they ship a minimum of five samples, although I think there are usually more.  You can always count on Eco Emi for great quality "green" product samples, beautiful packaging and a nice variety of items in each box.

Go green and thanks for reading!
