Ecocentric Mom-Mom & Baby Box October 2014

Ecocentric mom subscription boxes focus on healthy, natural, organic products. You can choose from a pregnancy box, a mom box, or a mom and baby box. They ship every other month and are $24. I went with the mom and baby box to get a few things for me while getting stuff for the wee one that is maybe less full of bad things then what I might just buy off a store shelf. Their site says they ship in September and November so I’m not sure which box I received so we’re going with October for simplicity sake.

Beautiful Earth Bath & Massage Oil-Full Size $9.50

I really thought this was a sample size but after going to the website this is the actual size bottle they sell. This can either be used to give baby a soothing massage or you can squirt some into the tub. It contains Chamomile & Lavender, both of which encourage sleep so this will definitely be a before bed time product.

The Organic Face Lipstick in Sweet Nectar-Full Size $17.99?

You could have received either a lipstick or a lipgloss in this box and I’m thinking I would have rather had the gloss.  When I went to the website the lipsticks they have there are in a completely different package and I also could not find this color so I don’t know if this was made specially for ecocentric mom or what. The color is ok but the lipstick doesn’t go on very easily so I had to press a bit and the lipstick bent in the tube. While I will use this I am not too impressed.

WooBamboo Kid’s “Sprout” Toothbrush 2-Pack-$5.95

These are really cool. They are an eco-friendly brush which is nice since we go through a lot of kids brushes as we are learning.

Annie’s Organic Cheddar Snack Mix Bunnies- 28g

I could not get a price on these because the website said it didn’t ship to Canada so it would not show me any products. They did give me a .50 off coupon to use but as these are not in stores here it’s useless but I think these will pass the snack test for the preschooler. They are baked cheddar crackers, pretzels, and plain crackers seasoned with cheese.  As a fish cracker substitute I think it’ll be okay.

Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin- $8.99

Yay!!! We love books here and while this is aimed at the baby the preschooler has already snagged it. It’s a nice inclusion to encourage spending time together.

Beyond a useless coupon and a few sample packets this was a good box of stuff. I like the baby products and the fact that there is some stuff for the older one is nice too. The few mom products were ok. I am not super thrilled with the lipstick but I will use it and while I wish the other samples were larger I really can’t complain because trying new things is fun.
