What a great box this month! I’m always so excited when my Ecocentric Mom Box comes in the mail. I just don’t have the time to go looking for great eco-friendly products so they do the dirty work for me. Each box contains such a different variety of stuff, it’s always neat to see what they include each month. EcoCentric Mom is a subscription box, for $24.95 you get a box once every other month, and now you can also get it once a month. They have three different types of boxes you can get: Mom Box (what I got this time), Baby and Mom Box,and the Pregnancy 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? This box was super super genius, but I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s what I got in my box this month.
Ecco Bella, Cocoa Soft Eyeliner Pencil
EccoBella’s founder created her company because she hated the use of animals for testing. She has plant based formula’s for all of her products, and they are all cruelty free. I love the color I was sent, and it stays on all day long. Make up isn’t usually in these boxes, and I was pleasantly surprised by this addition. This was the full size pencil, valued at $17.95.
Silk Intensive C Serum
Silk Therapeutics provides skincare products that benefit the skin with out harmful chemicals or preservatives. This Serum contains 10% of your daily vitamin C, and is said to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and evens skin tone. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling. I use it in the morning after my shower, and my skin feels great. I love knowing there are no chemicals to worry about. This sample size is a $20 value.
Bitsy’s Brain Food Smart Cookies
Guys, I’m going to be real with you. I saw chocolate, orange beet cookies and the first thing I thought was…GROSS. Being a paleo person, I almost just pawned these off to my daughter with out trying them. But then I thought to have a fair and honest review I had to at least try them. They were actually really good! I had to force myself not to eat the whole bag, and let my two youngest split the rest of the bag. They come in cute little letter shapes too. When my littlest is a bit bigger (he’s only 15 months) I will be getting more. This sample bag was valued at $1.00.
I’m going to be real with you all. I’ve never tried hemp seeds before. In one serving there is 210% manganese, and 90% magnesium, 80% phosphorus, and it’s relatively low carb. Guys. Why haven’t I tried these before? Have you tried these before? It is estimated that 68-80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Go google it yourself. This healthy little snack is so packed full of good stuff it is now a new regular in my diet. I listened to the suggestions of sprinkling it on my salad, and in my yogurt. Add it to your smoothie, your baked sweet potatoes, seriously…it’s a mild enough flavor you can practically add it to anything. Cooking it is fine, raw is fine, just eat it. Keep eating it. This sample size was worth about $2.25, and it also came with a 20% off promo code. Win!
Lasting Smiles Organic Lip Balm
Winter is coming, and I’m a lip balm addict. I admit it. This lip balm goes on smooth, and doesn’t have weird fake fragrance or flavor to go along with it. The best part, it’s not only organic, and sourced from small farms, but each purchase goes towards a cleft lip surgery fund. You can read more about their cause here. The price for this lip balm is $4.99.
Ellovi Mint Chocolate Butter Minis
Also, in preparation for winter. Like the label says, there are only 6 ingredients so pure you can eat this stuff. My skin gets so dry in the winter, this is exactly the kind of thing I need. They included a .5oz trial size valued at about $3.75. They’ve also included a coupon code for 15% off.
People Towel: On the go hand towel
This is a neat idea. A light weight, small little hand towel to take with you on the go. Keep it in your purse, your diaper bag, whatever. Use anywhere you’d use a paper towel, then throw it back in your purse. You can throw it in the wash machine, but the instructions say air dry. Fair enough, it’s so light weight it wouldn’t take long. Nice and convenient, and organic too. This towel’s price is $3.99.
Total value for October’s box? Just over $50! That’s not even including the coupons that go with it. Why do I love this box? It’s so convenient, and there’s always such a nice variety of stuff each month. I love that it introduces me to new products, because really, I don’t have the time or the energy to go find stuff like this in back woods Pennsylvania. I’d probably have to travel really far to find anything like this.
