May 2012 Eco Emi

Eco Emi is a monthly green product sampler service. Each month, for $15 (or $30 for non-U.S. residents), members receive between five and ten samples of organic makeup, skincare, candles, food, and/or other items. 

The May Eco Emi box contained:

  • Beanitos - these chips are made from Pinto beans and flaxseed... I tried them out and had to toss them because they tasted like cardboard
  • Balsam & Citrus Candle Tin by Beeluxe - this candle is made from 100% clean, natural ingredients

  • Barlean's Omega Swirl Vegan Oil in Blackberry and Fish Oil in Mango Peach - these "swirls" are a natural way to get your Omegas. I have tried their fish oil before, and (at least for me) I'd rather have straight-up fish oil than a fruit/fish hybrid. I'll try the Vegan Oil in the hope that it's remotely palatable.

  •  The Seaweed Bath Co. Wildly Natural Seaweed Argan Shampoo and Conditioner - These hair products contain a combination of seaweed extract, argan oil, and Vitamin E which helps to leave your hair moisturized after a shower

  • Elbee's Original Garlic Seasoning and Rub - this seasoning is packed full of garlic and peppers. It came with two different recipes both tailored to the exact amount of seasoning that we received

  • The All Natural Face Tangerine Vegan Lip Exfoliant - natural exfoliating ingredients remove dead skin while nutritious oils leave your lips deeply moisturized

  • Chocolat Lip Balm by Beeluxe - a chocolate lip balm made from organic ingredients
  • The All Natural Face Mint Infused Vegan Lip Gloss in Peppermint Icing - peppermint oils simultaneously plump and soothe lips 

  • Glee Gum in Spearmint - Glee uses natural chicle to get a chewable texture as opposed to the synthetic resins many other companies use

  1. I like that they're starting to include more. I think they realize that they have to really compete with Conscious Box.
