Ecocentric Mom June 2019 Review
Each box includes a card with 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.
These clothing labels are simply stickers that you write on and add to your clothing so that you can easily identify them. This is perfect for items you send to school or daycare. They are safe for use in the washer and dryer (wait 24 hours) and they stick directly onto clothing. Even though there are only two sheets, there are a total of 42 stickers which should last the average mom a while! Since my kids are home with me during the day, we don’t really have a use for these, but I’ll hang onto them for the future.
Begin Again Buddy Blocks in Sea Life – Retail Value $9.99
While I have several pictures here, it looks like I managed to forget to take a photo of the label on the bottom! These wooden blocks are from a familiar brand with an eco-friendly mission of using Maine rock maple wood and water-based stains. This set features 6 different sea creatures spread out over four different blocks that you have to match up. These are also fun to stack and I love that they fit neatly inside the box for storage. Although my 3-year-old did ask me “where’s the lid for this?” and I have to agree that would have been nice! This is a cute activity that appealed to all my kids and I love that it is so simple, but still poses a bit of a challenge, especially when you get to that octopus!
Niu Body Sugar Lip Polish in Piña Colada, 10 g sample size – Estimated Value $6.67 (Buy a full-size 15 g for $10)
The next item is only a sample size which is kind of a bummer in a box that only has four items in total. On the plus side, this stuff did taste and smell delicious and it left my lips feeling smooth and hydrated!
BLDG Active Skin Repair for Baby, 3 fl oz – Retail Value $24.99
This spray is a natural, non-toxic alternative to antibiotic ointments and can be used daily to repair skin or as a cleanser to reduce irritation and rashes. It is biodegradable, non-toxic, safe for sensitive skin and uses hypochlorous to maintain your skin’s health. You can use it for diaper rash, chafing, or any skin irritations. My son has a patch of eczema that flared up recently, so I sprayed some of this on it and am hoping it will make a difference! I do like the idea of this natural alternative to antibiotic ointments (although I admit, it never occurred to me that they weren’t the best option), but I have to say that this large size spray does not fit quite as easily in our first aid kit!
Verdict: This was not the best Ecocentric Mom box that I’ve received. With only four items inside and one of them being a sample size, it didn’t feel like much of a treat, especially since their pricing recently increased by $6.00. I’m not overly excited about the clothing labels that we won’t use and while I appreciate the natural skin repair spray, it seems like it was the bulk of our value this month. I did like the lip polish and I love those little blocks, but this box was really lacking for me overall this month! I estimate the total value to be about $51.64 which is not bad for a $38.99 + free shipping box, but since about half of the value is from one product, it doesn’t quite have the same effect for me!
