A few weeks ago I received my April Box from EcoCentric Mom to review. I was so impressed with my last box that when they asked me to review another I was so glad to say yes! EcoCentric Mom is a subscription box, for $24 you get a box once every other month. The best part is, you don’t even have to be a mom to get a box. They have four different types of boxes you can get: Mom Box, Baby and Mom Box (that’s what I get), the Pregnancy Box, and The Ecocentric Box. All of these boxes are packed with eco-friendly items for you to sample. For me though, the value in what you get is so worth it. That’s almost the most important thing to me…am I getting my money’s worth of stuff? I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s what I got in my box this month.
Bear’s Beauty Vegan Natural Deodorant: I was sent a travel size of the grapefruit/lavender deodorant to try. As a nursing mother I’m always happy to try new natural deodorants. I don’t want those aluminum/chemical smelling ones near my baby’s head. Value: $6
Country Choice Organic Steal Cut Oatmeal: I received one package of this to try (which my son absolutely loved). We got the maple spiced flavor. A box goes for $4.29 for 8 packages of oatmeal. Value: $.50
Brigit True Organics Peppermint Lip Balm: I was delighted to see this. First, they are an earthy pagan-like Virginia based company. It reminds me of my time living in the mountains of Virginia with my wild women friends. I miss them. I was sent their peppermint balm to try, and it’s smooth and cool on my lips. Love it. Value: $5.00
EcoTrek Fitness Bar: Guys…they sent me a chocolate raspberry bar. My nine year old daughter tried to steal it from me. We compromised and cut it in half and shared it. Now I need to buy more of these. It was so good, and guilt free. Eating that bar felt like a huge cheat (it wasn’t). Value: $2.30
EcoEggs: This was so cute, I wasn’t even sure if it was just a gift inside the box. It wasn’t until I read the card did I realize these were a sample of easter eggs. These eggs are made of non-toxic, plant-based plastic and they won’t sit in the landfill for years. They’re completely compostable. They even tucked some chocolate inside too. Yum! Value: $.40
Pure by She She Baby Wash and Shampoo. This was a nice, light citrus scented shampoo. All natural, plant based soap for your baby that you can feel good about. Love it. Great addition. The bottle I received was a 2oz. sample size. Value: $3.00
Baby Bits Wipes Solution. Guys…this is so brilliant. I’ve never heard of these before. Their little sample contained 3 cubes which is enough to moisturize about 100 wipes. In 3 cubes. 100 wipes. Guys. You drop a cube in a spray bottle with warm water and let them dissolve. Then you spray your baby’s wipes, and wipe the hiney. Now I don’t have to use disposables when I go out…I can just bring his regular wipes and spray. I may just keep it and use it all the time. I’m sure you can tell. I’m a fan. Value: $.80 (priceless)
Bright Baby Touch and Feel Easter Book: I read to my baby a lot, and he loved this little book. I love that EcoCentric Mom always includes a little book in their box. It’s like a little gift, just for my little boy. They always send perfect little books that fit right in the diaper bag. My little man liked his little Easter Book. Value: $4.95
Camilia Teething Relief: My little boy is in the process of getting teeth number 5 and 6, so this was well timed. I have a few other homeopathic remedies that I got from a girlfriend who’s mom brought them for me from England. This seems like a liquid form of the same exact thing, and it doesn’t have to cross a pond to get to me. Definitely a useful addition. This sample came with 5 doses. Value: $2.00
Goddess Garden Organic Sunscreen: These little packets are perfect for us. We are an outdoorsy family and I love the idea of having plant based sunscreen that doesn’t have harmful chemicals. I can use this on my baby with out worrying. I’m looking forward to trying it once the weather gets a bit warmer.They are even waterproof for up to 40 minutes. Love these. Value: $.60
Nourish with Style Reusable Food Pouch: I feel like this box understands that we are people on the go. We are a busy family and I love being introduced to items like this that help me continue to give my baby healthy food when we’re not at home. You fill up the pouch, and pack it away. No need to buy expensive pre-made pouches that you just throw away when your done. Value: $1.50
So far my total is $27.00 worth of items, and this isn’t including all the coupons that came in the box.
There was a 30% off coupon for Goddess Garden (yes, I’m going to use it!), and $1.00 off, 15% off Pure Natural Organics.
Once again I’m very impressed with the kinds of things I received in this month’s box. All these things are practical and stuff I’m interested in having and using. My only wish? That you could get a box every month!
