Ecocentric Mom November 2018 Review

Oasis Soap Co. Activated Charcoal Soap – Retail Value $14.97
This activated charcoal soap is meant for face, body or scalp. I am not a big fan of bar soaps because they tend to be too drying on my skin (and I dislike having a melting bar of soap sitting on my shower shelf), but I am intrigued by the fact that you can use it on your scalp. My scalp gets very dry and itchy in the winter, so I’m open to trying this as a possible solution! The charcoal is meant to pull away toxins and give your skin a deep, purifying cleanse. This is a vegan soap made from natural and organic ingredients and has a very light rosemary scent. They also provided a 25% off coupon which is always appreciated!
Tru Women Plant-Fueled Protein Bar in Saltylicious Almond Love – Buy 12 for $33.48
This bar is a plant-fueled, gluten, soy and dairy-free protein bar made from only chocolate, almonds, salt, and cassia flour. I was excited to try a “saltylicious” almond bar covered in chocolate, but unfortunately, it was pretty disappointing. That sprinkling of salt on top looks delicious and may have been the best part of this bar. It was pretty dry inside and very chewy with a slight almond flavor and hardly any chocolate. I don’t think I would have minded it as much had I not been expecting it to look and taste more like the photo on the front of the bar.
Is that picture on the packaging deceiving or what? I don’t expect that it will look exactly like that, but some bigger nut pieces would have been nice!
This stain treater is made with no chlorine bleach, peroxide or phosphates and is a 100% biodegradable surfactant. It says it works magically on all baby stains and I’m curious to see if it holds up to my usual stain treater! I really like the size and style of this bottle since it is much more discreet than the usual large sprayer nozzles and I think I can actually keep this tucked away in the back of the high chair for immediate stain treatment after baby eats.
Miss Mouth’s Messy Eater Stain Treater Travel Wipes (2) – Buy 10 for $14.25
They also included these two little travel packs which are already in the diaper bag ready for the next surprise on-the-go stain.
Marama Natural Gentle Baby Shampoo & Wash – Retail Value $14.99
The next item is a gentle lavender and chamomile baby shampoo and wash. I can always use more baby shampoo and wash and this 8 oz. pump bottle is a nice size! I’m already familiar with this brand thanks to Ecocentric Mom and I’m happy to try another product from them. This natural wash is phthalate, paraben, sulfate, and cruelty-free as well as vegan. The scent is a nice, light lavender with a bit of chamomile and I know that I will be smelling baby’s head non-stop after washing him with this since it smells so nice and clean!
New England Naturals Animal Scrubby Sponge in Turtle – Buy a 5-pack for $40.00
This cute little scrubby is made of a blend of flax and cotton and he’s a cute little guy that will make bath time more fun for baby! I like that it has a loop so you can hang him up and that there are two different textures to use for washing. This will go perfectly with our new baby wash!
Verdict: This month’s Ecocentric Mom box was another one that felt heavy on the baby items, which I don’t mind since we will use everything and they make my life easier. I do wish that protein bar had either tasted better or been a real chocolate bar instead, but that’s just personal preference! I am excited to see if that charcoal soap helps to combat the winter dryness on my scalp and I’m happy to have a nice smelling baby wash for Bennett. As for value, I calculated a total of $41.96, but that does not include the protein bar, travel wipes, or sponge.
