Eco Emi March Box!

Hello Everyone! When I was gone at my friend's Ali's and Libby's houses, my Eco Emi came! I opened it on Friday. I meant to blog yesterday, but Golden Girls is so addicting and Glee is so addicting and relaxing felt nice. Not that blogging isn't relaxing, I just didn't wanna get up to go into the office. Oh well. I'm blogging now. :) 
So, this Eco Emi box is so cool! I loved everything in it. I have tried most of the products in it. I think I should do that for the rest of the boxes so I can give an opinion about the products, if they are worth buying or trying. 
I loved the color of the tissue paper this month. It's like a maroonish reddish color. Very pretty.
I love how the paper is organic as well. It's made out of recycled materials. Very nice.
I freaked out when I saw the satchel with lavender on it. I'm so excited to grow lavender and put lavender in this cute satchel and put it by my bed so I can smell the lavender and get a better night's rest. The little flower confetti things were too cute! I love those kinds of flower confetti. I could tell they were made out of recycled paper. GREAT party favor for a little girl's party.
I opened the lavender satchel first...
The All Natural Face Vegan Gel Pot "That Black" with Rose Gold and Warm Honey colors of 'CLEAN VEGAN EYE SHADOW'. When I go downtown today, I'm going to be wearing those, or experimenting.
Here is what the card says (tweaked a bit still using Christine's words) 
"Vegan Mineral Eye Shadows & Vegan Gel Eyeliner by: The All Natural Face.- This is a great company that offers not only super clean & vegan ingredients but also has more colors available in their products than I have ever seen! Enclosed in your box are two surprise colors out of the following hues: Coral, Purple Sunset, Peach Ice, Warm Honey, Olive U and Rose Gold. These shadows work well with a day or evening look. Open your sample with care to prevent spilling the powder. The shades are very pigmented so a little goes a long way. Your gel eye liner is in the color "That Black" * comes with a cute brush. This is a smudgeproof formula that will stay on until you wash it off and is great for a soft look or a more sophisticated look."
For the eye shadows, I got the colors Rose Gold and Warm Honey. Super excited to try them today!

The next product I pulled out of the satchel was Lip Tints (any color) by Badger.
I LOVE BADGER PRODUCTS! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Badger products are my best friend! Ha! No seriously, they are very nice products and I love them to death. I love this lip balm, I have tried it. It doesn't have a smell, but it is very moisturizing. The color isn't really my color, but once I rub my lips together, the color is just slightly there and it's perfect! 
Here is what the card says about it,
"Lip Tints-any color -by Badger- Natural Mineral Color & Shimmer! Over the years, Badger had many requests for totally natural tinted lip balms. They have taken their popular and super moisturizing Cocoa Butter Lip Balm Formula and added minerals to create four natural colors packed with Certified Organic Ingredients."
I just got a light pink color. She didn't list the colors, and the sample stick doesn't list the color on the bottle either.  But, I LOVE this lip tint. I really do.

The next product that I pulled out of the satchel was Revitalize Shampoo & Conditioner by: Greenbody Greenplanet.
I love this product. I showered with it last night. In my February Eco Emi box, I received Greenbody Greenplanet Energy shampoo and conditioner. I love the smell. It's not like a pretty floral smell, but it's an organic smell. I love organic smells. These shampoos and conditioners bring out the natural curly/wavy in my hair and my hair feels so clean when I use these to wash my hair! Super nice.
Here is what the card says,
"Revitalize Shampoo & Conditioner by: Greenbody Greenplanet- Nourish, Protect, hydrate and rejuvenate your hair naturally! Revitalize Shampoo gently cleanses and nourishes your hair without stripping naturally needed oils. With the revitalize conditioner, it uses Sunflower oil which holds on to the moisture, softening the hair and preventing breakage."
This is a really great product! I love it!

There are no more products out of the satchel, so I grabbed the free flying product.
Incense by: Auromere Ayurvedic  multiple scents sampler pack.
I love the smell of incense. It's pretty depending on the different kinds of incense. You have to be careful with that. I like the smell of this kind of incense, it's very calm and soothing. I like it a lot.
This is what the card has to say about it, 
"Incense by: Auromere Ayurvedic- I light incense on a regular basis, it is a great way to relax and ground yourself. Made from fine essential oils, fragrant herbs, powders and resins, ranging from the most heavenly floral fragrance to the down-to-earth woody and herbal scents of the Ayurvedic preparations. Each stick is rolled by hand and packaged in 100% hand-made, recycled paper. You will get one surprise scent in either Champa, Cinnamon, Coconut, Gardenia, Musk, Myrrh, Vanilla, Parjata from the Flowers & Spice line or Amber, Ceder Jasmine, Lavender, Lily, Patchouli, rose or sandal from the Aromatherapy set."
I think I received the Lily fragrance, but I'm not sure. I can't wait to light this!

The next product I unwrapped was Raw Vegan Bars by: Bella Bars
The first taste of the bar was "ok". After eating the whole bar, I wasn't sure about it. This product, I wasn't very fond of. I'm not a vegan, I eat meat and all animal products. If it says CHOCOLATE flavor, I expect some chocolate taste. I know chocolate is from animals, like the milk and things, but DARK chocolate is not made from any animal products. It tasted like raisins to me and my sister. I wasn't very happy about this product. Maybe I should try a different flavor :)
Here is what the card says,
"Raw Vegan Bars by Bella Bars- I LOVE Bella bars, they are delicious raw and vegan delights! You will receive either the Cinnamon or Chocolate bar, both are fabulous! The Bella cinnamon bar is the perfect blend of sweet and healthy & amp; The dash of cinnamon gives it a bold cozy flavor. The Bella chocolate bar is just the right amount of sweet mixed with rich cocoa powder, giving it a hint of chocolate flavor - without the actual chocolate."
I got the chocolate flavor, and maybe I need to sample a few more bars to like the bars again.

I also used this product last night in the shower. I have to say... I LOVE this soap. I used it on my body and my face and I love it! You have to get used to the smell. It doesn't have a bad smell at all, just not as potent of a fragrance. It is a bit runny, because it is an oil based soap, but it lathers perfectly! I love this product!
Here is what the card has to say,
"Pear Tree Specialty liquid Soap by Old Post Road Oils- Vegan- This vegan liquid soap is fantastic for washing any part of your body and is perfect for shaving! This is one of the mildest soaps around due to the oils used which were selected because of their fatty acids. They are all soft oils that are very beneficial to the skin and contain great fatty acids. But despite the mildness, it's still a strong, vigorous cleaner. The formula was initially designed for kids with acne, so that it could gently cleanse their faces and lift oils and dirt from their pores without damaging the skin."
I'm already hooked!

The next product I unwrapped was a Toothbrush by Vitacare.
I haven't used this toothbrush yet, since I just got a new tooth brush, so I'll wait till I need a new tooth brush to use this one. I'm excited!
Here is what the card says, 
"Toothbrush by Vitacare- Time to recycle your old toothbrush and make way for this Fabulous unique toothbrush made from 100% biodegradable and recycled materials. Make your teeth whiter and your earth greener with these brushes. You will receive either the soft or medium bristle brush in a lovely purple shade. Be sure to check out there amazing toothpaste and mouthwash!"
Super excited to try out this toothbrush. I want to try out the tooth paste and mouth wash as well!

The last product I unwrapped was Pomegranate Gum by Vitacare.
Ok, so this product is AMAZING! I love this gum! I love that it's sugarfree for us 'braces' folk and filled with vitamins and calcium and has a whitening benefit. IT'S GUM PEOPLE! Found in the candy aisle! HOW COOL! I love this gum!
Here is what the card says about it,
"Pomegranate Gum by Vitacare- This unique gum is enriched with essential vitamins + calcium to provide you with maximized results while remaining truly natural. VITACARE's great taste sensation is a perfect balance of Cool Mint freshness and Pomegranate richness. Sweet, fruity and minty! I am addicted to this stuff!"
Me too! I am addicted to this gum! I love it.
