I highly recommend Eco-Emi to anyone who loves getting eco-friendly products that are packaged beautifully. I always look forward to getting my Eco-Emi box! This is another great month for them, with a theme of Vintage Days, with a focus on lifestyle products.
Informational card explaining what is in the box.
I love how everything is packaged in either a lacy bag or a sheer chiffon cream bag. Very shabby chic 🙂
Onto the contents!!
Ellbee’s Party Dip Collection in Sundried Italian. This sounds yummy! No MSG, 0 trans fat and gluten free! I can use this as a dip or put on a baked potato – they also suggest that I can use it as a spread for a sandwich – interesting idea 🙂 Full size at 2 oz $5.00
anna natural teas. A selection of three, all organic tea bags in the following flavors:
- Sweet Dreams – for a restful night’s sleep – which has chamomile, valerian root, red raspberry left, rose petals, lemon verbana, lemon & orange extracts
- Energize – for more energy & stamina – which has green tea, ginseng, red raspberry leaf, chia seed, ginko biloba, hibiscus, strawberry
- Cycle-Ease – for relaxation & comfort – which has red raspberry leaf, cramp bark, chamomile, hibiscus, cherry and stawberry extracts – why am I reminded of “Moon Tea” from Game of Thrones? 😀

Glee Gum Sugar Free in Wild Watermelon. Love gum. Will chew this one up. “Sugar-Free Glee Gum is: Vegetarian, Non GMO, Aspartame Free, Additive Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Yeast Free, Nut Free, and Peanut Free. Soy is Present in the Facility.” Full size 1 pack $1.09
SunCoat Water Based Nailpolish. I am not sure of the color, I think it is “Glory”, but it is a beautiful bronze shimmer shade. I have never heard of a Water Based nailpolish before, so I got this information from their website
“In Suncoat water-based nail polish – the chemical solvents (toluene and acetates etc) are replaced by water. Toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish is only one step forward while Suncoat water-based Nail Polish is a revolutionary advance! Suncoat water-based nail polish contains ~70% water. When applied, water vapor is released in to the air, not chemical fumes. Thus Suncoat water-based nail polish is:
- environmentally friendly
- does not dry or discolor nails
- virtually odor-free
- Phthalate free, FD & C dyes frees
- Mineral pigments and natural ingredients are used for Suncoat nail polish colours.”
I will see how it wears. They say you don’t need a base coat, which I will try that out. This will be the next color I use on my nails! Deluxe size 8ml $5.33
bodyBrana Strawberries and Cream Facial Mask. Oh I love these powder masks where you use either water, yogurt or milk!! I got one last year from eco-emi, so I will use this one! This is a nice size – I think this is a one ounce size, because when I weigh it, it is 1.3 oz. And this is an ETSY SHOP!! I love etsy shops. So, I am saying this is a $5.25 value unless corrected 🙂 They state to use only a teaspoon, so I should get several uses out of this mask. It is made of 100% natural and edible ingredients, nothing artificial, no water and no preservatives. Ingredients: organic milk, organic strawberries, pink clay, organic arrowroot, honey, white clay.
“The most luxurious yet gentle facial mask, made with food stuffs and precious pink kaolin clay. The organic Strawberry powder we eat in our cereal, but also use here for a wonderful mask. This mask can also be used for young people (mother and daughter, for example). This is a powder which you mix into a paste with water or other liquid when you are ready to use the mask. Not having liquid ingredients means, long shelf life, no preservatives.”

Aura Cacia Chill Pill featuring Lavender and Roman Chamomile. This is an oil that you can use in a diffuser or put a drop or two on a tissue and breathe in….As I do have a stressful commute, this is coming with me in my car!! It smells GREAT – “Orange, peppermint and basil help relieve the mind of its burdens, while lavender, patchouli and chamomile cool off the emotions.” Full size .5 oz $10.99 (although it is currently on sale at Aura Cacia for $8.79)
Beazer Berry Herbal Sugar Scrub. OH How I wish this was bigger!! Really, really do!! I think I will use this as a lip scrub because it is so small 😦 It smells like strawberries and I love it! It is totally edible too 🙂 Sample size $1.75
“Slather yourself in luxury with this berry sugar body scrub exfoliating polish. Our naturally made body scrub will buff away impurities from your skin making you look younger and more radiant while feeling soft as silk. Made from the finest organic ingredients, our berry sugar body scrub gives you a healthy, high-quality spa experience at a price you can afford in the comfort of your own home.

I really loved all of the products in this box – There is not a loser in this box at all! I think that the owners of eco-emi do such a nice job with curating their boxes and place a lot of thought to put together a common theme. Just a lovely service and I highly recommend them. This month’s box was valued at $29.04 ($26.94 if you want to count the sale price for the Aura Cacia product). I rarely put a value on my eco-emi boxes, but I had read some reviews about the value of the box. Eco-emi is the only subscription service I know of that sends out the boxes priority mail and so, you are paying for a faster shipping time.
Do you subscribe to Eco-Emi? What did you think of the May box?
