Ecocentric Mom Review April 2017
Ecocentric Mom is a monthly subscription curated for your stage of motherhood. Choose between the pregnancy, mom & baby and mom subscription box, and switch to the next box when you’re ready. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Ecocentric Mom has become one of the boxes I look forward to receiving. It’s a pleasure to unbox, I always discover fun new products, and I find it to be thoughtfully curated.
When you sign up for an Ecocentric Mom subscription you have 3 options to choose from:
- Pregnancy Box – For the Mom-to-Be
- Mom & Baby Box – For Mom & Her Little (up to 18 months)
- Mom Box – For Every Hard-Working Mom
Every month we review the Mom Box. I find that it is suitable for most ladies (not just the mommies) as it include a variety of products in the following categories – Beauty, Bath & Body, Snack, Health & Wellness, Home.
Here’s a look at the items we received in the April “Celebrate Earth Day” Mom Box:
With all the worries that come with mothering your tribe, you probably often feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. Please use the items in this month’s box to feel great about making some simple, earth-friendly changes in your daily routine that will help make our world a cleaner, more sustainable place for our children.
Itzy Ritzy Snack Happens Reusable Bags
You never leave home without a snack stash. (Smart thinking.) Keep crackers, fruit, sandwiches and candy bribes stylishly contained in our colorful zippered bags. The eco-friendly carriers come in modern patterns so adorable you’ll forget plastic bags ever existed. Even better, they’re machine washable so cleaning – and reusing – is easy.
This is the item in the box I am most excited about. My eyes immediately went to these snack bags. I absolutely love these and already want 10 more of them. I have received snack bags before, but none with a zipper. I love how versatile these are. I can use them for snacks in my purse, jewelry in my travel bag, cell phone in my beach bag, you name it!!
Dr. Brite Cleansing Mouth Rinse
Enjoy the supplemental benefits of this refreshing mouthwash that’s both vegan and gluten-free. The all-natural ingredients work together to create a detoxifying solution, which eliminates bad breath and leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh. Made in the USA using BPA-free and fully recyclable packaging.
This is another item that excites me. I am always looking for natural dental care products. Right now I am using The Honest Company mouth rinse but have been wanting to find a new one. I love the sound of Dr. Brite’s formula as it includes Vitamin C, Coconut Oil, and Activated White Charcoal.
Hannahpads are great alternatives to conventional disposable pads. It is healthier, better for the environment, and also cost saving for you in the long run.
Ok, how cool is this!! Ecocentric Mom gets bonus points for including such in interesting, Earth friendly product. Check out these talking points:
- Using cloth pads are healthier for your body. No harsh chemicals or irritating synthetics like the disposables. Sounds comforting, right?
- One person throws away an average of 16,000 disposable pads and tampons to landfill during her lifetime. Don’t be one of them.
- Don’t spend money on something you will be throwing away in a few hours. Hannahpads last you years before it goes into the compost bin.
I am SO intrigued by these cloth pads. I’m not 100% sold just yet, but am really excited to do some more research.
ParaKito Mosquito Repellant
The Unidose contains a highly concentrated formula of our unique blend of essential oils. It’s perfect for short-term protection in tropical climates, infested areas or during peak mosquito times. It can be used on its own or in combination with other PARA’KITO products including bracelets or clips. Make sure you pop one in your pocket or bag before you leave the house so you’re ready for any mozzie emergencies!
This is made with 7 essential oils so of course I am a fan. I never use to worry about mosquitos but last year they started to bother me. I am excited to test out a natural repellant this year. I spent some time on the ParaKito website and found out that they also have bracelets. I kind of want to get a couple.
South of France Bar Soap – Travel Size
Now take it with you! Our luxuriously lathering all-vegetable soap is triple-milled in the Marseille tradition for a pampering cleansing experience. Coconut Oil and sustainable Palm Oil create a creamy lather; natural Glycerin combines with organic Shea butter to leave your skin soft and deeply moisturized.
I LOVE natural soap. This one is made with vegetable glycerin which is actually my face cleanser of choice right now. It leaves my skin feeling really soft. These will be a great addition to my travel bag.
Essential Wipes Bamboo Towelette
Great for travel and feeling fresh any where! Put in purse, first aid kit, back pack or in the car. 10 Wipes in a tube. Opens to a 8″ x 10″ biodegradable bamboo wipe. Infused with a radiant 5 Essential OIl Therapeutic Blend of: Copaiba, Niaouli, Lavender, Palo Santo and Ylang Ylang. This special essential oil formula is cleansing and nourishing to the skin. Naturally antibacterial, safe for the whole body.
Ummmmm….how cool are these!! You all know I am obsessed with cleansing wipes. I take them with me everywhere. These will be PERFECT for my purse! All you do is add a little bit of water (which I have with me all the time) unroll, and wipe!
MannaKadar Flutter Mascara
This Flutter Mascara has an intense curling lash effect with a cutting edge technology brush tip to create the most luxurious lashes yet! Achieve full and curled lashes with this one of a kind curvy wand. Grabs those hard-to-reach lashes and round tip to ensure a clump free application. Pair it with our Lash Primer (sold separately) to achieve the most lushes lashes for any occasion.
I was just about to go out and purchase mascara. The one I am currently using is WAY too thick and clumpy for my liking. Therefore, this particular item arrived at the perfect time. I have received MannaKadar products a few times now and have been happy with all of them. I can’t wait to test out this mascara and see if it is the formula I have been looking for.
St. Tropica Coconut Hair Mask
Our coveted Hair Mask formula starts with the single most important hair ingredient: Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO). That’s because VCO is the ONLY natural hair oil ever PROVEN to increase hair strength, by reducing protein loss. Our VCO is Certified Organic, unrefined, and cold pressed – because we insist on the very best, or nothing at all. Our amazing VCO base is then deeply infused with the world’s most-renowned Hair Superfoods, like Organic BIOTIN, GREEN TEA, HIBISCUS, AMLA, and HORSETAIL – all used for centuries & known for being super-rich in hair vitamins + nutrients… creating the HOLY GRAIL of all hair formulas.
Yes!! I have been waiting for this to show up in another subscription box. I have received it before but foolishly gifted it to a friend. I chopped off my hair a couple of months ago and have been using oil treatments on a regular basis since then with the hopes that it will grow back faster. I will definitely be using this mask. I want a 6-month supply of these.
PS – If you have time I suggest jumping on the St. Tropica website and reading the reviews for this product. Everyone seems to swear by this product.
Ecocentric Mom Review April 2017 – Final Thoughts
Wow, wow, wow. Ecocentric Mom hit it out of the park this month. This is easily the best box I have received from them. I almost gave this box to Shonah to review this month but changed my mind at the last minute. I am SO glad I kept it for myself (sorry Shonah). Now that I have seen how amazing all the products are I definitely would have shed a tear if I didn’t get to review them myself. This box just gave me a completely different opinion of Ecocentric Mom. If this is the kind of box we can expect to see going forward then I highly recommend you jump on their website and sign up for a subscription ASAP.
