Moondani Natural Breath Mist – sample
I really like this! It’s a little spray (sample size) of a natural breath freshening mist made from herbs that naturally freshen breath like cardamom, ginger, and fennel. Strong (like you’d expect, but tastes great).
Crispy Green Crispy Fruit, mango – .36 oz, value: $1.25
I don’t personally care for mango, so I gave this pack of freeze-dried mango to my sister in law to try. She liked it and said it was a good snack.
Here’s a close up of the breath mist.
Zabana Essentials Glow Stick in Bare Beauty – .63, value: $9.95
I think this may be my favorite discovery in the box! This is basically an illuminating balm stick. It’s a sheer/clear color with shimmer that you can use to highlight your face, body, or use as a lip balm!
MooGoo Mudder Udder Balm – .21 oz, value: $1
This is a lanolin-free nipple balm. I actually love that it’s a trial size – not only is that easier to toss in the diaper bag but I’ve found that I haven’t actually needed to use nipple balm much. This stuff is made with ingredients that are better for baby while still great at taking care of mom.
MooGoo Nappy Balm – .21 oz, value: $1
This is a diaper cream – I love that it’s made with really good ingredients for baby. So far I think it works quite well. I’m glad to have found this, too.
Here’s a better look at the glow stick. I know it’s hard to see on the right, but I swiped this along my arm. It’s a very subtle sheen which makes it really ease to swipe on and go and blend the tiniest bit with your fingers. This is easy to use even without a mirror. I also like it as a lip balm, though it’s quite large for a lip balm.
It also smells super fruity and fantastic, so I love that.
Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo – value: $6
I love dry shampoo! I’ve also been hoping to find one I like that isn’t aerosol. I’m still getting the hang of applying this, but I like it so far. Seems to work well.
Green Gaia Essentials Organic Sleepy Time Foot Rub – 1 oz, value: $15
This is another product I’m loving since getting my box. This foot rub has organic ingredients like coconut oil, chamomile, lavender oil, beeswax, and valerian root to help you relax naturally and fall asleep. Plus, you can use it on your baby!
Billy Goat Baby Gear Baby Bandana Bib – value: $4.75
These “bibdanas” are made with organic cotton and are really soft and absorbent. These are really cute on babies and also a total life saver when it comes to drooling and teething!
Child’s Play Pocket Pals Books in Bunny and Puppy – value: $1.99 each, $4 total
These tiny books are cute. Right now my son enjoys chewing on them more than flipping the pages, but they’re easy to toss in a bag!
Here’s a look at the inside of the little books.
And here’s what the bib looks like laid out. It connects in the back with snaps and has 2 different places to snap it so it’s adjustable.
Verdict: This Ecocentric Mom box has a total value of ~$45. I’m happy with that for sure, especially because I found a couple really great new products that I love. My favorites are the breath freshener, glow stick, and sleepy time foot rub. I also appreciate being able to trust the ingredients will be green/organic/healthy with anything I discover through Ecocentric Mom.
