Eco Emi- September 2014

I present to you… last Eco Emi box for a while. 😦

I cancelled my subscription. I just wasn’t very impressed with the last few boxes, and my limited college student budget can’t accommodate a $15 per month gift-to-me that isn’t very satisfying.

I’m a little disappointed, but I’m going to keep my eye on the website and read future reviews on other people’s blogs. If the boxes improve, I may resubscribe.








So far I love the coffee and the cookie. I like the eye serum, but I’ll have to keep using it until I decide it’s worth spending any money on.

As you can see by the bamboo towel, yoga mat cleaner and wipes, there wasn’t much else in the box that I could really use.

    Wait – Yoga mat cleaner?? Is that a thing? O_o I mean, I clean my pilates mat, but water and any gentle detergent seem to work…

    Cookies are always a plus, however. Gotta keep the adventuring rations going.

    It’s a shame the subscription wasn’t living up to your expectations, but the funny thing is that I read a lot of beauty/lifestyle subscription box reviews, and it feels like about 80% of them are ‘neutral to meh’, with a further 10% being ‘WTF?! Sucky!’. I have to confess, it hasn’t sold me on the idea of subscription boxes as a thing (not that we have many options here in Middle Earth anyway). I think if a subscription box isn’t living up to your expectations (even if it’s not *horrible*) then you should jettison it from your life without regret, and get yourself a $15 gift you know you’ll like from your local/online (legit) fairtrade/organic store instead!

    • I had the same reaction to the cleaner.

      Some companies give you a quiz to see what you’d like before you subscribe. I know it’s not possible to please everyone, but I feel that they just aren’t trying. :/

      If Eco Emi does improve, there’s a chance I might resubscribe. It was fun to get a surprise once a month. 🙂
