February 2012 Eco-Emi Box


Eco-Emi now welcomes international members at $30 a month, a little more pricey then the US box witch is only $15 but this includes shipping from the states. 
$30 works out about £19.50/ £20.00 a month. 

They will mail you five to ten samples of natural, organic, green, eco-friendly, cruelty free, vegan, vegetarian or Fair Trade products to your door wrapped in chic earth friendly packaging. Part of the fun is that the package will look a little different every month! You will have the luxury of trying out an array of green good for you products in the comfort of your own home or over a cup of herbal tea with close friends.

What to expect in a box?
Well, that’s a surprise every month but they will try to include an array of products everything from animal friendly makeup to organic brown rice, all natural perfumes to herbal teas and vegan chocolates. They want you to try a little bit of everything (not just beauty) so that you will be able to shop completely green in all areas food, beauty, household and more. They strive to feature either organic, all natural, vegetarian, fair trade or vegan products. Before you know it you will get to know the labels and companies behind the products and stepping foot into the organic isles or all natural stores will be a breeze!

This first item that caught my eye was the bright pink tube. 
 At first I thought they might be bath salts, but then I realized that it was actually a lip gloss! 
(colour: freedom - blue toned red) 
This is very much like a lipstick which i love more then glosses!
Full size item
The Dagoba lip balm also stood out.
 I'm a lip balm hoarder & I would probably sign up for a service that only sent me lip balms each month!

Soap Nuts are very popular with those wishing to embrace a ''greener'' lifestyle.
The shells are obtained from the ''Soap Nut Tree'' of which there are many types. The shells that we import are from the Sapindus Mukrossi tree found within North India and the Himalayas. Technically a Soap Nut is actually a drupe!
A drupe is a fruit with an outer fleshy part which surrounds a hard seed. Examples of drupes are cherries, peaches, mangos and olives.
Soap nuts are used extensively in Ayurvedic Medicine.
USES & BENEFITS: The uses and benefits of Soap nuts are many and varied.
Clothes washing
Dish washing
Hair washing
Cleaning vegetables

I am very happy with my box 
and will use everything and will defiantly keep my sub!

*Disclaimer: I purchased this Eco-Emi box with my own money and was not asked to review it by Eco-Emi. I was not monetarily compensated for this review and the honest opinions here are entirely my own.
