Eo Emi - August 2013 - Open Box

 
(I don't know why, but it looks like I cannot format this post properly, for the life of me!)
 
 
Hi friends,

I was really looking forward to receiving my Eco Emi box this month but for some reason, this was not a really good one for me. I am a bit disappointed and I think this was the worst box sine I joined Eco Emi last December. It still has a good variety of samples - I guess that makes it an okay box, just not stuff I would care about...So let's see what I got!

 

 

 

 

A lot of food items, no bath product, two makeup items but those leave to desire...keep reading!

 

 

 

VALENTI ORGANICS

 
 

CARROT, GRAPEFRUIT & EGYPTIAN GERANIUM ROSE

BODY LOTION
$21.00/8 oz.
 
From the card: "This light weight natural lotion with an amazing scent, will repair, rejuvenate, hydrate, moisturize and soften your skin. Packed full of powerful anti-oxidants, vitamins!"

 

I have never heard of this brand and I have to say that the combination of fragrances sound really intriguing to me. I am not a big fan of lightweight lotions though, as I prefer a butter type cream. But I am still very eager to try this and the body oil that came with it!
 
 
 

CAFE MACHIATTO BODY OIL

$24.00/4 oz.
 
From the card: "Repair damaged skin with this energizing, anti-aging body oil infused with organically grown coffee extract and vanilla essential oils blended in a rich formula. This body oil smells so cozy and amazing and the caffeine will help wake up your skin?"
 

This one really sounds like my kind of scent since I love warm fragrances (patchouli, vanilla, etc.) I have used body oils in the past and have enjoyed them, they can be a bit messy though.
 
Since I am going on a trip at the end of the month, I am definitely taking both samples with me!

 

CRAFTSMAN SOAP
 
NATURAL LEMONGRASS SOAP WITH FRENCH YELLOW CLAY
$6.50
 
 
 

(Feel free to use the coupon!!!)
 
From the card: "Known for its cleansing properties, French yellow clay gently lifts oil and impurities while leaving skin feeling refreshed! This is a great soap for your face and is infused with lemongrass so it smells delicious and is perfect for all skin types".
 
This looks like an awesome soap! I am not a big fan of bar soaps for my face as they tend to leave my skin dry and tight, but this is very waxy to the touch and I can see where it would be moisturizing rather than striping my skin of its natural oils. The scent, though Lemongrass, is very subtle.


COCO LAQUER

TIFFANY COLOR NAIL POLISH

$6.00

 

From the card: "What girl does not love Tiffany Blue! This color collection is soft and chic. The perfect shade for the end of summer!"

 

 
I am going to keep it simple and short here: H-I-D-E-O-U-S!
 
 

GOURMET BODY TREATS

NATURAL EYE SHADOW

in

GUN METAL GRAY

$18.99 0.23/oz

 

 

From the card: "This eye shadow is a lovely and very versatile color. It's great for sensitive skin or for contact lens wearers. Pure concentrated color is waterproof and won't wear off so you can look fabulous and be worry free in the warm weather". 
 
 

 

 

I like this color a lot. It's a bit dark and dramatic and would look great to set a dark gel eyeliner, by softening it.  It had a bit too much of a shimmer though so I am not sure how it would look on me as an all over lid shadow.

 

 

EAT GREEN TEA

EDIBLE GREEN TEA

$25.00 / 100g

 

 

From the card: "I have iced green tea every day but I was surprised to find out that eating your green tea leaves has 10,000 times more powerful antioxidants than drinking green tea! Now I add this to sandwiches or salads. It is also great paired with the walnut butter featured in this box."
I am not sure what to think about this other than it sounds really good and I love green tea! I am going to follow Christine's advice and add some to my next salad!

 

ARTISANA

RAW ORGANIC WALNUT BUTTER

$11.33 / 8oz

 

 

 

From the card: "This is a favorite of mine! Raw walnut butter is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids and also a great way to add protein to your diet. Great snack for on the go. I keep a packet in my purse at all times. Perfect on toast, crackers and is great for baking or just squeeze and eat alone."

 Very intriguing! I am definitely going to snack on this on top of a few celery stalks! It has 205 calories per servings...one hefty snack!

HOME FREE TREAT

GLUTEN FREE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MINI COOKIES

$1.49 / bag

 

 
From the card: "These are the best cookies ever and what is even better is knowing they're healthy! Free of most food allergens and gluten and they are certified vegan. A single bag contains more than 1/2 serving of whole grain. A perfect guilt free snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth".
 I tried that brand in another box this year, and they are NOT the best cookies ever! They taste healthy, so there!

BAKERS CONFECTIONS

WOODEN SPOONS - PICK YOUR COLOR

$12.49 / set of 18

 


Okay! So what are these, and what are you supposed to do with them? I mean they are cute and I am going to assume that the sample is a miniature size but when you buy the large size, can they be washed? Are they supposed to be thrown in the trash and be bio-degradable? It's a pretty cool idea, but wow, $12.49 for 18 utensils?
 
As for this sample, I really don't know what to do with it...card making? Scrapbooking? a brooch? I just don't know! Not very happy with this - it's just eye candy.
 
Well, as you can see, and if you have been following my Eco Emi reviews, this was not an impressive box at all! But hey, you never know...all (aside from the cookies) may turn out to be awesome products!

 Cheers!
