Ecocentric Mom Review June 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.
The star of your June box is YOU, mama! Enjoy this collection of luxury beauty items – with a touch of practical thrown in (because we’re moms, after all!). This month’s box was curated to give you a healthy glow as summer gets underway. Get out from behind the camera this month!
Mom’s need a good spoiling every now and again…. And by every now and again I mean a whole heck of a lot more often than just Mother’s Day. I think they could use a spoiling every month, with their own subscription box! Such a great theme this month for Ecocentric Mom. The star really is you! Let’s make it happen.
Moisturizing Facial Lotion by Lyeska Skincare
This 100% natural, lightweight moisturizer provides pure nourishment and lasting smoothness for all skin types. The high concentration of anti-oxidants and fatty acids in Siberian cedar nut oil work in combination with rose hip and organic shea butter to regenerate, replenish and protect your skin. Lyeska is all natural and responsibly produced skincare, based on deeply nourishing, antioxidant rich Siberian cedar nut oil.
Perfect! I was just running out of facial lotion and this arrival has saved the day! I’ve already used it a couple times and am loving the feel. Not too oily and doesn’t leave a lot of residue on the skin. I don’t like the greasy feel of most lotions.
Opal Glow Luminizer by Orglamix
This cream highlighter adds a youthful glow with a transparent, dewy finish. Use Enlighten Cream Luminizer on cheek bones, brow bones and eyelids to create a sensuous, luminous glow.Skin looks instantly radiant when you use this versatile luminizer alone, or over foundation, moisturizer, or serum for a lit-from-within glow. Handcrafted in small batches, Orglamix creates innovative, natural makeup, cruelty free cosmetics + vegan beauty to help you look + feel your best every day.
I’m not sure I fully know how to use this… This is where my make up knowledge sometimes fails me. It’s good to know you can simulate that ‘glow’ without getting preggers… am I right ladies?!
Beauty-To-Go Refillable Compact by Orglamix
This slim, perfectly-sized compact features two mirrors: one side has a 2x magnification mirror for close-ups, while the other provides a standard true-to-life image. Both are housed in a high-quality, travel-friendly case that fits easily into a bag or pocket. Handcrafted in small batches, Orglamix creates innovative, natural makeup, cruelty free cosmetics + vegan beauty to help you look + feel your best every day.
I have a small obsession for compact and travel sized items. It may or may not have to do with my obsession for travel… maybe. This little guy will get a lot of use with me!
Soap Stick for Stain Removal by Meliora Cleaning Products
A fragrance-free, vegetable-based stain remover. Wet the stained area and rub with the Soap Stick. Then wash like normal. Amazing on dirts, greases, and whatever your baby/toddler can get into. Meliora Cleaning Products manufactures people- and planet-friendly home cleaning and laundry products in their Chicago, IL factory. A Certified B Corp, Meliora Cleaning Products was founded by two perpetually curious engineers who want to help you clean better. All products certified MADESAFE and a Green rating on Whole Foods Eco-Scale.
Umm! How cool is this!? Mom’s may see this and think it will come in handy when you’re with your kids while they spill on themselves in a restaurant and you’re on vacation and only have a vanity to try and sort the stain. I look at it and see an excellent addition to my camping gear! To each their own. Either way, what a cool item! Didn’t even know something like this existed.
Made Good Strawberry Granola Minis from Healthy Snack Solutions
These granola minis taste like strawberry season all year. Strawberries are full of antioxidants and gluten free oats which help lower LDL, “bad cholesterol”. These minis are slow to digest, keeping you fuller longer. Healthy Snack Solutions loves natural, nutrient-filled foods! We know in this non-stop world that we live in, it’s hard to find healthy, on-the-go snacks! That’s where we come in – we make it easy to find tons of high quality, nutritious and allergy-sensitive snack options perfect for your busy life!
Show me a mom who doesn’t need a good snack tucked away in the glove compartment for those school drop off lines and I’ll show you someone who isn’t yet an experienced mom!
Ecocentric Mom June 2017 – Final Thoughts
I can kind of concur with Sarah’s review last month about feeling underwhelmed by the box and ready to jump to conclusions about how the box was lacking. However, two months in a row for AYOB, after going through the items individually I can say I really like what we received! Perhaps a smaller box might be a better marketing tool for Ecocentric Mom? Just thoughts. Love the theme of making Mom the star. A decent theme can really carry a box. They have also done a really good job on their website with outlining all the products provided and how you can get more of them if you liked it. That’s the one downside to subscription boxes, you don’t always know where you can get more of the same if you really loved something.
