Ecocentric Mom Review, Baby Bathtime Box August 2017 - Intro Card

The theme for August is “Baby Bathtime Box”, which features “with products chosen for an eco-friendly (and super fun) bath time experience for baby.”

Ecocentric Mom Review, Baby Bathtime Box August 2017 - Intro Card

Love that Ecocentric Mom has gone back to including the detailed product info in the box!

 Ecocentric Mom Review, Baby Bathtime Box August 2017 - Natural Sea Sponge Ecocentric Mom Review, Baby Bathtime Box August 2017 - Natural Sea Sponge Ecocentric Mom Review, Baby Bathtime Box August 2017 - Natural Sea Sponge

Baby Buddy Natural Bath Sponge – Retail $10.99 (Buy on Amazon for $7.99)

Our first item is this natural sea sponge. My 2-year-old didn’t really like this– despite being soft to the hand, when you wash with it, it is actually very exfoliating and can feel a little rough! It works great to clean up his perpetually dirty knees after digging in the dirt all day, but I might actually steal this for me to use in the shower instead. (Shh! It’s a Mom *and* Baby box, after all!)

Bee Maternal Organics Calming Spray No 7, 2 fl oz – Retail Value $15

The website describes this milky-white spray as “A delightful aromatic blend of Mint, florals and herbs.” The essential oils included are not specifically listed on the label, but that description is really accurate! All of those notes blend together into a light, pleasant fragrance. This is suggested as a room or linen spray, so I’ll probably stash it in the bathroom to use after bath time at night.

Kid O Plui Rainball – Value $14 (Buy on Amazon for $13.99)

This is a fun little gadget that can help with washing for smaller kids, and act as a toy for older children!

Basically, you hold it under water to fill it up, and then water drips out like rain on the bottom to wash or entertain your kid. You can also hold your finger over the top to temporarily stop the flow of water.

Even though he has approximately 100 cup/water toys, my 2-year-old enjoyed playing with this! Since it fills up underwater without needing to squeeze it, he found it easier to fill up than your typical squirt toy. The “rain” is really gentle too, so I think this would be great for tiny babies too.

Natralia Happy Little Bodies Eczema Cream – Retail $15 (Buy on Amazon for $11.16)

We’ve gotten to test tons of different eczema creams, but this is the first one that includes peppermint oil! I wasn’t sure if that would be soothing at first, but it’s really refreshing and it does seem like it would calm itchy skin. This is a nice big tube too, and a little goes a long way. Definitely keeping this on hand for dry winter skin.

Gaffer & Child Hydrating Serum, 30 ml – Retail $34

The packaging on this little serum is so nice! This is listed as a facial moisturizer, but I have never had good luck with using oils on my face in the past, so I’m reserving this for cuticles and hands only. The lavender essential oil is definitely the strongest scent (which I love!) but this mix also includes argan oil, carrot seed oil, lemon oil, and jojoba oil, too.

Energy Squared Chia Superfood Squares, 1.7 oz – Retail Value $4 (Buy a pack of 6 on Amazon for $23.98)

I love that Ecocentric Mom always includes a snack that I can share with my toddler! The number one ingredient in these is dates, with texture from coconut and cashews and a nice citrus/orange flavor. My 2-year-old really, really liked these! We haven’t had a ton of date-based snacks before so I’ll have to be on the lookout for more.

Finally, our box included a sample too:

Shea Moisture Body Wash & Baby Lotion, Single-Use Samples

I love Shea Moisture’s baby products, so I was excited to try out this fragrance! The chamomile and argan oil scent was really lovely, and the baby wash had an absolutely lovely lather. The lotion was also really nice and absorbed easily, with this packet being enough for two baths. This brand makes some of my most favorite sulfate-free, paraben-free baby products and I always recommend it!

Verdict: The August Ecocentric Mom Mom & Baby Box has an overall value of about $86, even using the lower prices available for some items on Amazon. That’s an awesome return on a $24.99 box! I don’t know how they do it. I really love the theme and products this month, and the products themselves have conscious ingredients and will happily be integrated into our bathtime routine. I’ve discovered a lot of wonderful products in this subscription, and I think it’s a great and affordable gift idea for eco-conscious new moms and moms-to-be.

  1. some essential oils are not safe for babies, including peppermint so it seems weird to send a mint spray. The rain thing looks cool… until it gets full of mold or is there a way to open it for cleaning??

    • We’ve had that bath toy for a couple years and have had no problems with mold… even living in humid Minnesota with no central AC in our house.
