Eco Emi Box Review – March 2014 {Girls Just Wanna Have Fun}

 Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links or referral codes. This was not a sponsored post.

Eco Emi is an Eco-friendly subscription box service that sends at least 5 samples (or sometimes full sized items) to you each month for $15 shipped. They send you all natural products that can range from skin, hair, and nail products to snacks, teas, and other lifestyle type items. The products they send are all healthy, natural, and organic. You usually get a little bag of beauty products, plus a couple healthy natural snacks to try – so they do a good job of giving you a nice variety of things, and it has a lot of different points of appeal that way. Here’s everything I got in my March box:

  • Dawn Lip Gloss by Purely You Minerals
  • 2N1 Lip Therapy and Cuticle Treatment by The Lano Company
  • Eco-Beauty Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes by La Fresh
  • Eco-Beauty Nail Polish Remover Pads by La Fresh
  • Red Popcorn by Kitts Kernel
  • Almond Bar by Kuli Kuli

Thought it was VERY COOL that they included a full block of Shea Butter with the box this month. It’s organic, 100% raw, and a really soft quality that makes it easy to work with. Some unrefined Shea Butters that I’ve used come in a much harder consistency that practically needs to be grated in order to use – so I was VERY happy with that.  Shea Butter can be used in so many ways – check out the post I made here if you’re looking for some ideas on ways to use yours!

 

ecoemi-march2014-8Dawn Lip Gloss by Purely You Minerals – Appx. Retail Value: $8.00

This vegan lip gloss contains all natural vitamins, oils, and minerals. Feels nice and moisturizing on. Doesn’t give you a super glossy look, though. The color Dawn is a very nice, wearable natural tone!

ecoemi-march2014-92N1 Lip Therapy and Cuticle Treatment by The Lano Company  – Appx. Retail Value: $5

This product can be used as a lip treatment or a cuticle treatment – so I love the fact that it’s dual purpose. It’s got jojoba, coconut, and sweet almond oils. I did get a chance to try it on a real painful hangnail I had – and after applying it a couple days the area has really healed up nicely so it seems to work well for that.

ecoemi-march2014-11Eco-Beauty Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes by La Fresh – Appx. Retail Value: ranges from $ .42-1.66

Single use packet containing an eco friendly, lavender scented makeup remover. Haven’t tried it yet to say how it works, but having the individual package would be very handy for those that travel often.

ecoemi-march2014-12Eco-Beauty Nail Polish Remover Pads by La Fresh – Appx. Retail Value: $.60

Another single use packet containing acetone-free nail polish remover. Is orange scented, and claims to not have the harsh, drying effects of conventional polish removers. One pad is supposed to clean all 10 nails. Very convenient for traveling or keeping in your makeup bag for nail mishaps on the go. Haven’t tried it yet to say how well it works yet.

ecoemi-march2014-7Red Popcorn by Kitts Kernel– Appx. Retail Value: $ 6.25/1.5lb. bag (not sure on size of sample!)

This Red Popcorn is non-GMO and grown naturally, which is supposed to enhance the corn flavor and makes it extremely cool already. I haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet, nor have I ever had any type of red corn so I’m excited to check it out on a movie night this weekend!!

ecoemi-march2014-6Almond Bar by Kuli Kuli  – Appx. Retail Value: $2.89

These Almond Bars are sourced from West Africa, and is filled with a nutritious and medicinal plant called Moringa. It’s gluten-free, vegan, and made with simple ingredients. One very cool thing about it is that it contains the protein, iron, and calcium you need throughout the day. The taste wasn’t all that great, but it wasn’t terrible or intolerable either and I managed to eat the whole thing. Love the nutritional value and would be curious to try the other flavor options available to see if any of them are more palatable.
