Ecosalon’s The Box: Fair Trade & Fabulous Review
The EcoSalon box is a limited edition box that pops up about once a season. They usually only have 100 or so available, so they sell out pretty quickly. (This box is no longer available, but I will post about the next one, so make sure to sign up for the newsletter if you don’t want to miss it!)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Cost: $129 with free shipping
The Products: Get ready for Fair Trade Month (next month!) with some of these gorgeous fall fashion finds, skin care products to keep you glowing through the change of seasons, and some really good for you herbal products to balance you through the transition into winter.
Ahnu Karma Shoes – Value $90
This card came with a unique coupon code to get a pair of Ahnu Karma shoes for free. I just placed my order for the grey version of this pair, and I can’t wait to try them out. (And I didn’t have to enter credit card info!)
Pact Leggings – Value $34
I believe the original listing of this box stated that this legging would be size medium, but mine came in large. Usually that’s the size I buy, but these leggings are a little loose, so I would have preferred the medium. Hopefully they will shrink a little in the laundry.
Vera V-Neck Top in White – Value $15
The fabric of this top is pretty thin, but it is a perfect piece for layering. I will definitely wear it a lot!
INDIGENOUS Fair Trade Organic Tassel Scarf – Value $90
This scarf is made with organic cotton and very cozy. I really like the chocolate brown color too!
AKOLA PROJECT Demi Paper Bead Necklace – Value $86
This necklace is such a statement piece! It’s amazing each of the beads are made from hand-rolled paper. I’m not sure if I’ll wear this enough to justify keeping it – but it will make a wonderful gift.
SKINAGAIN Youth – Value $64
I’m very excited to use this product! I love getting full-sized skincare products in boxes – you actually can use it long enough to see if it works for you! This formula is free of gluten, fragrance, parabens, dyes, etc, so I know it won’t irritate my skin.
I haven’t tried these yet – if you recommend them let me know!
LOGONA Mascara Volume No. 2 – Value $22
LIVING LIBATIONS Maiden Fern Blushing Balm – Value $20
This mascara is new brand for me, and I always am down to try out a new natural mascara. I thought this one was pretty good (not my all-time favorite), but it gave me really dark lashes and length for a more natural look.
This little blushing balm is actually a perfect size – because a little goes a LONG way with this color. I tried it on my lips and my cheeks, and I think I’ll stick with it as just a blush, the red was a little too bold for my lips.
This facial scrub doesn’t scream blueberry cookies to me, but the scent is subtle and lovely!
This was the one item in the box that seemed a little out of place to me from EcoSalon, since From The Lab isn’t a natural brand.
Verdict: I’m very happy I bought this box. I love that it was fashion themed, and I got to try out a lot new-to-me fair-trade brands. I’m also thrilled with the value. Were you able to snag a box before it sold out? What did you think of it?
