Ecocentric Mom time! I always look forward to this box for two reasons: One, it only comes every other month (the wait makes it more exciting). Two, I never know what’s going to be inside. It’s rare that I ever see a spoiler/review before receiving my box, so the contents always remain a mystery.
If you’re unaware, Ecocentric Mom is a unique subscription box that features mom & baby products that are eco-friendly, natural, organic, and often vegan-friendly. There are 3 different box options to choose from. I subscribe to the “Mom & Baby” box, but they also offer a “Mom-to-Be Box” and just a plain ol’ “Mom” box.
Subscriptions are $24/every-other-month, but they sometimes have discount codes available that are usually good for the life of your sub. (I was able to pick up a discounted subscription a while back and now my boxes are only $18/month.)
Let’s see what’s in the November/December box!
First look. Every box features bright pink tissue paper sealed with an Ecocentric Mom logo sticker.
Circle of Friends Organics Shampoo & Body Wash – This is a full sized, 8 ounce bottle of tearless shampoo/body wash. It’s safe for sensitive skin and free of parabens, fragrance, sulfates, and other yucky stuff. Thanks to subscription boxes, I haven’t had to go out and buy a single bottle of shampoo or body wash for my girls since they were born. No complaints!
Sweetie Pie Organics Fruit Snacks – Real fruit snacks made with dried mango, sweet corn, and apples. 100% organic and zero added ingredients. My girls absolutely LOVE dried fruits snacks and these were gobbled up in no time.
Wee Can Too Veggie Baby Crayons – I’ve always wanted to try these. They’re plant-based crayons made with food grade soy wax and colored with real fruits & veggies. They’re gluten-free, vegan, and totally edible. My kiddos are pretty much past the “everything is food” stage, but if they do happen to take a bite of these it’s good to know they’ll be fine.
Lovely Candy Co. Chewy Original Caramels – All natural, gluten-free caramels made with real butter and sweetened condensed milk. They’re certified gluten-free, kosher, and made with non-GMO ingredients.
Soothie Suckers Herbal Pops – I think I got these in a Bluum box not too long ago. They’re ice pops made with real herbal blends that support a healthy immune system. Just freeze ’em up and give them to your kiddos when they’re starting to feel a little under the weather. (Psst… adults can benefit from them too!)
Hero Nutritionals Slice of Life Omega 3 with Chia – This is one of the few (only?) times that I’ve gotten a gummy supplement/vitamin that’s actually gelatin-free (and vegan). They were pretty tasty too.
NurturMe Dried Baby Food – I’ve gotten these packets a zillion times now and I gotta say, enough already! My girls never cared for them so I just throw them in my smoothies for an added boost of veggies/fruit.
eInvite Holiday Cards – A sampling of photo cards from eInvite.com. Five holiday themed cards and envelopes were included, along with a 20% off discount code.
I kinda have mixed feelings about the November/December Ecocentric Mom “Mom & Baby” box. I was hoping for a more holiday-ish theme and possibly a book (the last few boxes have had seasonal board books). That said, the veggie crayons are a nice alternative to a book and the value of the box was definitely up there (the shampoo alone sells for over $14). Still, it would have been nice to see a holiday treat or even some winter-themed things. Ah well. Can’t have everything, right?
