Haul: March 2012 Eco Emi Box

This is March’s Eco Emi box. I love the Eco Emi boxes, because you get such a cool variety of stuff. This month actually had a lot of beauty products, and I was pleasantly surprised.

This is the box freshly opened. It was wrapped in dark red tissue paper.

This is what it looked like underneath the first layer of tissue paper.

This is everything that was inside the box. I love how they wrap everything in little sachets and tissue paper, it’s like getting multiple presents:)

This was the information card included. I’ll be writing what it says about each product with the given product, but I will tell you what the introduction says now:

“Hi everyone,

I hope you enjoy your March box! Spring is such a great time of year. Everything feels fresh and new and the sun is starting to come out while the cold weather is starting to drift away. Your March box is filled with an assortment of fun and useful items. Your products are all tucked away inside of recycled tissue paper and a reusable sachet bag. I am really looking forward to getting our April box out to you.

Warmest, Christine

These were various coupons and offers in the box (it always comes with these);

There was a note that explained a mistake they made. It says: “Oops! We made a mistake on our cards this month. The Vegan Mineral Eye Shadows by The All Natural Face will be featured in your box in two surprise colors out of the following hues: Coral, Purple Sunset, Peach Ice, Warm Honey, Olive U and Rose Gold. Enjoy your beautiful colors!” and then a free shipping offer from Bella Bars.

Then there were a couple of information cards from some of the products and some coupon codes to use online,

This is everything that packed away in the little sachet.

This is Revitalize Shampoo & Conditioner By Greenbody Greenplanet (full size: 8 OZ/$24.00 each).

The card says: “Nourish, Protect, hydrate and rejuvenate your hair naturally! Revitalize Shampoo gently cleanses and nourishes your hair without stripping naturally needed oils while the Revitalize Conditioner uses sunflower oil which holds on to moisture, softening the hair and preventing breakage.

There was also an information card in the box that had more information: “Our Bio Eco-Nutrient Complex is a certified organic blend of 14 plant-based ingredients and extracts that infuse highly active vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids deep into the areas of your hair that need it most. From our first ingredient to the last, each one is carefully selected to sooth and calm your scalp, provide you long term hair health and give you protection from environmental damage, color loss and distress.

I like the packaging on these – it’s cute and simple. They’re little travel size bottles @1 FL OZ each.

These are Vegan Mineral eyeshadows in coral & warm honey (on the left) & Vegan Gel Eyeliner in that black By The All Natural Face. – (eyeshadow full size: 5 grams/$3.50 & gel eyeliner full size: $5.75)

The card says: “This is a great company that offers not only super clean & vegan ingredients but also has more colors available in products then I have ever seen! *omitted mistake written here* These shadows work well with a day or evening look. Open your sample with care to prevent spilling the powder. The shades are very pigmented so a little goes a long way. Your gel eyeliner is in the color “That Black” & comes with a cute brush. This is a smudgeproof formula that will stay on until you wash it off and is great for a soft look or a more sophisticated look.”

The eyeshadows are in cute colors, but the packaging was hard to open and I spilled half of “coral” when I first opened it. I haven’t even tried to open the other one yet. And the eye liner packaging (when opened) made a mess everywhere! I’m going to give these products a chance, but I’m not too sure.

Raw Vegan Bars by Bella Bars (full size: 12 ct bars / $19.80)

The card says: “I LOVE Bella Bars, they are delicious raw and vegan delights! You will receive either the Cinnamon or Chocolate bar, both are fabulous! The Bella cinnamon bar is the perfect blend of sweet and healthy; the dash of cinnamon gives it a bold cozy flavor. The Bella Chocolate Bar is just the right amount of sweet mixed with rich cocoa powder, giving it a hint of chocolate flavor – without the actual chocolate

I got the Chocolate Nut Raw Bar (1.76 OZ). I haven’t eaten it yet, but I’m excited to try it – it looks and sounds soo good:)

Pomegranate Gum by Vitacare (full size: $1.69)

The card says: “This unique gum is enriches with essential vitamins + calcium to provide you with maximized results while remaining truly natural. Vitacare’s great taste sensation is a perfect balance of Cool Mint freshness and Pomegranate richness. Sweet, fruity and minty! I am addicted to this stuff!

I got a full size pack of this and I’m chewing a piece right now, actually. It’s got a good taste, but it’s a little too mint and a little too-little pomegranate, if that makes sense.

Toothbrush by Vitacare (full size: $3.39)

The card says “Time to recycle your old toothbrush and make way for this fabulous unique toothbrush made from 100% biodegradable and recycled materials. Make your teeth whiter and your earth greener with these brushes. You will receive either the soft or medium bristle brush in a lovely purple shade. Be sure to check out their amazing toothpaste and mouthwash!

I got a medium bristle toothbrush, full size (obviously). I’m not sure if I will use this because Kylor and I have an electric toothbrush, but I think I will keep it as a spare (it’s always good to have one).

Lip Tints – Any Color – By Badger (full size: $6.50)

The card says: “Natural mineral color & shimmer! Over the years Badger had many requests for totally natural tinted lip balms. They have taken their popular and super moisturizing Cocoa Butter Lip Balm formula and added minerals to create four natural colors packed with Certified Organic ingredients.

I like this and the color I got is really cute, but no where on the packaging does it say what shade this is, which bothers me.

Pear Tree Specialty Liquid Soap by Old Post Road Oils (full size:8 OZ/$7.00)

The card says: “This vegan liquid soap is fantastic for washing any part of your body and is perfect for shaving! This is one of the mildest soaps around due to the oils used which were selected because of their fatty acids. They are all soft oils that are very beneficial to the skin and contain great fatty acids. But despite the mildness, it’s still a strong, vigorous cleaner. The formula was initially designed for kids with acne, so that it could gently cleanse their faces and lift oils and dirt from their pores without damaging the skin.

I got a travel size (2.5 FL OZ) and it does smell kind of weird, but I still want to try it out.

Incense by Auromere Ayurvedic multiple scents sampler pack (full size: $6.95)

The card says: “I light incense on a regular basis, it is a great way to relax and ground yourself. Made from fine essential oils, fragrant herbs, powders and resins, ranging from the most heavenly floral fragrances to the down-to-earth woody and herbal scents of the Ayurvedic preparations. Each stick is rolled by hand and packaged in 100% hand-made, recycled paper. You will get one surprise scent in either Champa, Cinnamon, Coconut, Gardenia, Musk, Myrrh, Vanilla, Parjata from the Flowers & Spice line and Amber Cedar, Jasmine, Lavendar, Lily, Patchouli, rose or sandal from the Aromatherapy set.”

I got the scent “Champa”, I haven’t lit this yet, but I LOVE incense, so I’m super excited to try this one out!

This box had some great things and some okay things, but I still love Eco Emi and I still get it every month. I liked this box a lot.
