EcoCentric Mom Discovery Box Review

The Baby Discovery Box

I have been introducing you to EcoCentricMom.com for a while now.  I am one of their expert panelists and if you signed up, you got to see my face and my tips printed on the brochure!  EcoCentricMom sent me their boxes to check out.  I know you’re thinking (but you have to like it, you’re in it).  Not true.  I am always honest – to a fault as many of you know.  I won’t blow sunshine where it doesn’t belong and for that reason there are companies who won’t touch me with a 10 foot pole.  They know I will tell you what is not satisfactory in a product.  So I was really thrilled to get these boxes in my hands and check them out.  I was not disappointed.

Everyone loves to get presents – this is a way to spoil yourself with surprises while also doing some research into healthy products. (And you won’t go broke doing it.)  Each box contains a variety of natural and organic products to check out each month.  Depending on what box you chose you will get different items to explore.  This months Mom-To-B Box featured some great products that I’ll tell you a little bit about.  Your box comes looking all cute and full of sample and full size goodies to check out.  None of this “here’s a wee packet of lotion to smish out and try“.  You get some bigger samples and in some cases full size products, and not to mention a great variety.  This month’s Mom Discovery box featured:

Greenbody Greenplanet Shampoo and Conditioner – I’ve never heard of this company before and to be honest I’ve not had much luck with natural hair care but it smells delicious.  It’s concentrated so you don’t need a lot to get your hair clean. The ingredients list looks great … better, in fact than most hair care products I’ve seen.  These products are also free of silicone and are vegan and cruelty free.

Orgain Chocolate Creamy Fudge Protein Shake – THIS is something I am so thrilled to have discovered through EcoCentricMom.com.  As you may know, I am pretty active fitness-wise and part of that for me, means packing in more protein to my diet.  Many shakes and powders on the market are full of chemicals and additives that make me queasy.  Orgain uses organic ingredients to deliver a delicious shake.  I used it as a recovery aid and it tasted great.  I will be ordering this for myself in the future!

Earth Mama Angel Baby Body Butter – You all know how I feel about Earth Mama Angel Baby.  It’s my go-to. I love and trust them. Their products are so safe and gentle as well as multipurpose.  I can’t get enough.  So I was really happy to see Earth Mama Body Butter in my box! Their products are the best!

Vaska Lavender laundry Detergent – Another brand I was not aware of but am happy to have found out about.  Vaska’s laundry detergent uses only a few ingredients, which are put right on the label.  No harsh chemical compounds that sound like a science experiment.  Smells nice and is very gentle.  Would be great for baby clothes!

Naturally It’s Clean Floors – I am a believer that cleaning products in your home are a huge source of air pollution for you and your family.  This month’s box came equipped with samples of this plant-based enzyme cleanser for floors.  No harsh scents, just clean floors and clean air.

Tree Hugger Bubble Gum – I don’t chew a lot of gum nor do I allow my kids to.  But if I was going to need gum for a gift or goodie bag this would be a great alternative! They have great flavors like Cinnamon Spice, Lemon Lemonade and Tangerine Dream.  Still sugar in my book but there’s no artificial food coloring or icky preservatives to contend with.

That’s not all, there was also some samples of Eat Cleaner Vegetable Wipes which keep your veggies cleaner and prolong their shelf life with simple wipes that are biodegradable,  and two full sized samples of DivineMama Nutrition Bars which aide in nourishing new mommies and supporting a healthy milk supply. They come in a variety of flavor choices and are easy to toss in your diaper bag when you need a boost.

Along with each box you receive a brochure from EcoCentric Mom that tells you about each featured brand as well as a coupon code for further shopping if something strikes your fancy!  I’m all over the Orgain drinks for fitness recovery! (Hello 40% off!).  You’ll also get some great advice and tips from two of their resident Experts (one of them is little ol’ ME!)

Get Your Box: These are really fun and packed full of natural goodies – sign up for your own box (Choose these custom tailored discovery boxes: Mom-to-Be, Baby Box or Mom Box!)  I can’t wait to see what’s in sotre for next month!
