The June pregnancy subscription box from Ecocentric Mom came with lots of fun products! Here's an overview of the box and the cool products it came with!
About the Box
About the Products
1. Moisturizing Facial Lotion by Lyeska Skincare - 1.9 fl. oz. (Included) Retails $54
Aloe Vera Juice, Rose Flower Water, Siberian Cedar Nut Oil, Ethyl Macadiamate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Cetyl Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Barley Seed Extract, Rosehip Seed Extract, Rice Powder, Rosmarinus Officinalis, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, German Chamomile Flower Extract, P-Anisic Acid, Glyceryl Caprylate, Bentonite, Xanthan Gum
I actually really like this facial moisturizer. It is most definitely moisturizing but it doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or slick in anyway, which I love! Another plus is that, so far, it hasn't caused any breakouts whatsoever. It has a very (ever so faint) rose smell that disappears almost immediately. It also came in a nice sized bottle, which is nice because you don't have to use a large amount to get adequate coverage.
The only negative I foresee is that I'm not so in love with the price. As much as I enjoy the product itself, I just can't stomach the $54 price tag. Call me cheap if you will but it seems just a tad steep to me. I may have done as much as $25 but that's just me. Let me clarify, I'm not necessarily saying it's not worth $54...I'm just saying that, personally, I don't usually spend that much on beauty products. But I'll see how long it lasts, maybe I'll decide in the end that it is in fact worth it!
2. Opal Glow Luminizer by Orglamix - 1.4 g (Included) Retails $18
Coconut Oil, Candellila Wax, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Rosemary Extract, Titanium Dioxide, Mica
I was pretty excited to find this little gem in this month's box! I frequently use highlighters/luminizers in my makeup routine so I knew that this would be right up my alley. I have to say it works really well in comparison to other "commercial" highlighters I have used. It gives a nice subtle, natural looking glow and has definitely made it into my regular rotation. I don't really have anything negative to say about it. Overall, I've been loving it so far!
3. Laundry Stain Removal Soap Stick by Meliora Cleaning Products - 1.7 oz. (Included) Retails $2.99
Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Coconut Oil, Water]
So I haven't actually used this bad boy yet but I was intrigued the moment I opened the box. I've never been one to use stain removers (mostly because I forget they exist) but I am really curious to see how this works. With 4 kids, stains are a plenty in our home...if I could just manage to remember I have this =/ I really need to give it a try! I'll let you know how it goes!
4. Mango-Peach Gummy + Softgel Prenatal Vitamins by UpSpring - Sample Pack Included Retails $24.99/30-day supply
Gummy: Tapioca Syrup, Evaporated Cane Juice, Purified Water, Pectin, Natural Flavors (Peach, Apricot, and Mango), Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Beta Carotene, Vegetable Oil, Carnauba Wax
Alpha Omega Softgel: Capsule Shell (Geletine, Glycerin, Purified Water, Sorbitol, Natural Caramel, Carob), Beeswax, Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Mixed Tocopherols
These were not bad for a prenatal. The gummies were actually good and the softgel was small enough that it was easy to swallow. I didn't experience any nausea after taking them, which I often times do, especially with sofgels.
The only downside I see is having to take 4 supplements as opposed to 1. I have a hard time just remembering to take my one-a-day, so I don't imagine I'd have much success with 4. I'm actually considering taking these though. Like I said, I like the taste of the gummies (hard to find in a supplement) and the softgel is easy to take. Plus, it doesn't have the horrible aftertaste that a lot of supplements have. Yuck!
5. Strawberry Granola Minis by Made Good - 0.85 oz. pouch (Included) Retails $17.64 for 24 pouches
Gluten Free Oats, Strawberry Pieces (Apple Juice Concentrate, Apple Puree, Strawberry Puree, Cherry Juice Concentrate, Apple Pectin, Natural Flavor), Cane Sugar, Agave Nectar, Apples, Sunflower Oil, Whole Grain Crisp Brown Rice, Agave Inulin, Apricots, Tapioca Flour, Vegetable Powder (Spinach, Broccoli, Carrots, Tomatoes, Beets, Shiitake Mushrooms), Strawberry Flavor
Honestly. my hopes weren't to high for this product. But I actually really like them! They have a nice flavorful taste (i.e. they don't taste like cardboard! Yay!) I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed them. I guess I just have horrible experiences when it come to "healthy snacks". I come from a long line of food lovers so maybe I'm just a flavor snob but I tend to be really picky when it comes to healthy foods. So, when I found myself snacking on these willingly, I knew they were a win. These would make great snack packs for the kiddos as well!
6. Gentle Feminine Cleanser by Healthy HooHoo - 0.17 fl. oz. (Included) Retails $13.74 for 4 oz.
Water, Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate, Lauryl Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside, Coco‐Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Phytate, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Angelica Archangelica Extract, Camellia Sinenesis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Punicum Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract
First I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the commercial genius of this companies name...Healthy HooHoo...nothing like straight and to the point! Now that that's been said...This is another product I've yet to try out. I'm super duper careful about what I wash with down there. I have extremely sensitive skin to begin with and certain areas are even more so. So, I guess you could say I've been hesitant to try this out. Even though it's supposed to be gentle, I have somewhat of a mental block that's been keeping me from giving it a shot. I'm sure I'll use it eventually but, for the time being, I'll stick with what I know works.
7. All Purpose Skin Cream by Egyptian Magic - 3 ml. (2 Samples Included) Retails $39 for 4 0z.
Olive Oil, Beeswax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Bee Propolis
This product was just okay for me personally. It's received great reviews and is supposedly a "miracle product" but, so far, I haven't seen anything spectacular. It could just be that I'm not a huge fan of "oily feeling" creams, especially for my face. It looks, feels, and smells like I'm rubbing petroleum jelly on my face...eek! So, needless-to-say, this wasn't my favorite product. On a more positive note, my face was not all dried out after using it! The oily feeling did subside somewhat the more it absorbed into my skin. So, if your okay with that oily feeling for a time then you may like this cream. As for me, I'm more partial to the Lyeska Facial Moisturizer that also came in this month's box. Just a personal preference...
Overall, I was really pleased with the products that came in this month's pregnancy subscription box from Ecocentric Mom. My favorite product would have to be the Opal Glow Luminizer by Orglamix followed closely by the Moisturizing Facial Lotion by Lyeska. I've been using these 2 products almost on a daily basis and I love them!
