One of my favorite monthly boxes is my Eco Emi box. This box is filled with Eco-Friendly products.(for details on Eco Emi subscriptions click here) This box was a 4th of July themed. All the contents were wrapped in a super cute American flag bandanna.
The box was filled with all kinds of goodies. First up was Cuticle Care by Badger. It came in a super cute tin, was full size and I love it. It is not an oil so application is easier. Lasts through most of the day and even a few handwashes. It is handy and easy to apply. A tin will last a long time. It retails for $5.99 for the full size.
Next up we have Vegan lip and cheeks in Peachy rose by: The All Natural Face. This product is quite cute. Comes in a little compact, complete with a mirror. The color was okay, I am very pale skinned so it had more of an orange tone than I would have liked, but it applied well to cheeks. It was okay on the lips, kind of dry. However; I used it on my eyelids as a base for my eyeshadow and it worked great. Added a little color and kept creases from forming. This product was a full size I believe and retails for $4.00
The next product was also a full size product, Purifying Cleansing Wipes by: Nelsons Pure and Clear. These are handy wipes in a handy container. They sooth and clean the skin. Although they do not remove eye makeup very will they work great after a workout or to refresh. They are not a super moist towel so you can freshen your face and neck without removing all your makeup. They are great for travel, not just because of portability, but also to keep you feeling clean after a long drive or flight. Full size is $8.75
A small foil sample of a lotion was up next. Although I hate foil pack samples I was excited that this one was a coconut one. I love coconut, always reminds me of the beach. This lotion is by Desert Essence. I loved the lotion. It smelled wonderful and was not overly greasy and still managed to moisturize. It has Shea Butter and Jojoba in it so it really gets in the skin. I loved this so much it is on my must order list. Full size is $8.99 for 8 oz
Next we have a bronzer. Bronzers have been in most of the beauty boxes lately because of the summer season. This one is by Purely You. It is a vegan product. It is a very flattering shade and has a touch of shimmer. It is a good product. I was surprised at how well it worked. Full size 4 grams is $7.00
Gummy bears by Surf Sweets were also included in this box. Most of you have heard me mention these in other boxes. These are a favorite in our house, these did not make it more than 2 min after the video and pictures before my kids gobbled them up. They of course are yummy! $2.19 for 2.75 oz
Next up was also a food product. This was Beanitos Black Bean Chips in Chipotle BBQ: These were pretty good. Mine was a little on the crushed side, but still tasty. $2.64 for 6oz
The last item in this month’s box was a package of seeds. These seeds are Wheatgrass Organic Heirloom Seeds. Although I do tend to kill everything I plant, I will give these a try. I recently purchased a juicer and wheatgrass grows fast and can be juiced. I have never had wheatgrass before so it will be a fun experiment.
That was all the goodies in this month’s Eco-Emi June Box. It was a very good box and I got my $15 worth. You can watch the unboxing of the box here. Please let me know if you get Eco-Emi and what you thought of your June box.
