Ecocentric Mom March 2019 Review
We received this little card that includes a link to this page where we can filter by age to see the products from our box. This is great to check out if you are considering this subscription as you can see what items you might receive in another age group. I usually appreciate the inclusion of this card, but this month with it reminding me that my baby is going to be ONE very soon, it made me a little sad to think of how time is flying!
Silibib by GoSili – Retail Value $11.95
Bennett is my third child and I can honestly say I have never owned a silicone bib before and now after using this, I have no idea why! This is such an eco-friendly option because we can get multiple uses out of it without having to throw it in the wash. It pretty much just rinses clean and then dries in time for his next meal! I may just be replacing some of my other bibs with a few of these. This one is a little small and doesn’t cover as much as some of the other bibs we own, but it does have an optional scoop at the bottom which is nice and works well. It is hypoallergenic and even dishwasher safe which is really cool! It has a few different snaps so that you can adjust the neckline for a bigger or smaller baby and overall, this is just an awesome and useful item to receive!
Green Sprouts Organic Splash Toy – Retail Value Unknown
I could not find this cute little penguin or any of his friends online at all, so I am thinking these might be discontinued. This plush splash toy is hypoallergenic, made with organic cotton and is free from PVC, BPA, and formaldehyde. He is super cute and fun for bath time, although, I’m not sure this is really the best toy for a baby 3+ and up considering most babies will be trying their best to suck the dirty bath water from it since it holds water. He might be more sufficient for washing baby instead of being a toy!
iPlay Organic Cotton Short Sleeve Adjustable Bodysuit, Size 18 months – Retail Value $10 (currently on sale for $8.00)
The last item specifically for baby is this really cute green onesie. I love this color green for spring and I am so happy they sent us size 18 months because my big boy is just growing out of 12-month clothing. This bodysuit is made from breathable organic cotton and features inside out seams for comfort.
The best part of this bodysuit is that it has a built-in extender so you can really get your use out of it. This is such a great idea for baby clothes specifically! Here Bennett is wearing it on the smallest setting and although it hasn’t been washed yet (don’t worry, we were just trying it on!) you can see it’s a bit baggy on him, so I have no doubts this will last him for quite a little while!
Everipe Blender-Ready Superfood Smoothie in Pina Colossal – Buy 6 packs for $39.99
This bag of smoothie mix is certainly new to me. I was surprised that such a large bag was only one serving and even more surprised at how much it costs. This bag contains organic freeze-dried fruits and plant-based superfood ingredients like chia seeds, hemp hearts, and even some bee pollen. There are no added sugars or preservatives and it is gluten-free.
Inside the package, the superfood seeds came in their own separate pack. You simply add it all to a blender with a cup of ice and a cup of water or your choice of milk and blend for 90 seconds. I opted for some coconut-almond milk since this flavor already contained coconut. I might not have blended it for a full 90 seconds, but I was still happy with the somewhat chunky/gritty consistency the contained flecks of seeds and sweet dried fruit. I thought the flavor was great, but I can’t see myself paying over $6 for just one smoothie so I’m glad to have received this in a box as a special treat!
Essential Soap Maker Ylang Ylang Bar – Retail Value $11.00
This handcrafted soap features ridges that are perfect for gently massaging sore muscles. I thought the ylang-ylang scent was pretty mild, which I liked because this is a scent that can often be a little overwhelming. Apparently, it is also an aphrodisiac and an anti-depressant and can even balance your hormones. This soap contains coconut oil and shea butter which will nourish and moisturize your skin. I’m looking forward to using this the next I notice my muscles feeling sore and need to relax!
Pure Lano Lip and Cuticle Treatment – Retail Value $15.00
I actually received a Pure Lano product in another box recently and really liked it so I was happy to see this in my box! While the other lip treatment I received was thicker and great for nighttime, this more liquidy counterpart will be perfect daytime! This natural lip treatment contains pure lanolin, coconut oil, soybean oil, almond oil, jojoba seed oil, and Vitamin E. The taste is kinda funky from the lanolin, but it seems to hydrate my lips well and goes on smoothly. A little bit goes a long way with this tube and I love that it can be used as a cuticle treatment, too!
Verdict: This month’s Ecocentric Mom box was full of so many great items and included a great variety! I love the silicone bib and onesie for Bennett and that the rest of the items focused on mama’s wellness which is so important. The smoothie was fun to try and a nice healthy treat! This was a good mix of natural products and I estimate the total retail value of this box to be about $54.62, which doesn’t even include the bath toy. That’s pretty great for a $32.99 + free shipping box!
