I was very excited when presented with the opportunity to review the March/April Ecocentric Mom box! I am always on the hunt for natural, organic products for myself and for my family.
Here is a look inside the box that I received:

So many awesome products!! Here is a little information about each item:

First, I will start with my favorite item: the Country Choice Organic Oatmeal. I forgot to take a picture of this individually before I ate it! I got to try the Maple Spice Raisin flavor. Needless to say, it was delicious.
Price: $4.29 for 8 count box

Goddess Garden:  Unlike traditional chemical sunscreens, Goddess Garden is safe, effective, biodegradable, and free from harmful chemicals.
Price: $14.99-$17.99 for 3.4 oz bottle 
 I applied the Sunny Face packet on my son during his football game this past Saturday. It went on smoothly and worked well!

Stretch Skin Signature Oil is 9 perfect ingredients to help prevent stretch marks. This 100% natural belly oil is perfect in combination with the Stretch Softly Stretch Mark Prevention System (tank, shoots, oil). 
MSRP $22
Pure+Remedy: Botanical Firming Eye Cream: This powerful firming eye cream is formulated with dozens of botanical extracts, plant oils, and vitamins to boost collagen production, promote cellular rejuvenation and repair wrinkles. It will leave your eye area soft and hydrated with fine lines and wrinkles minimized.
Vitamin C Concentrate Eye Gel: This gentle and lightweight eye gel is a concentrated delivery system for a high form of active, bioavailable Vitamin C to skin around eyes. It instantly cools and soothes the delicate eye area.

Price: $32 for Botanical Firming Eye Cream, $30 for Vitamin C Concentrated Eye Gel
I tried both products and so far, I like them both! They smell nice and don't leave my skin feeling oily after application.
Travel in style with this chic, cruelly-free essentials pouch from Pure Essentials. Holds all of life’s little necessities in a smart, lightweight carrier. Made with PETA approved vegan faux ostrich print and faux sueded interior.
Price: $18 pouch available in black, brown, tan, cream
I absolutely love this pouch. It is so cute! I plan to use it as a pouch for my jewelry when we travel.

Equal Exchange minis are made with cacao (cocoa beans) from farmer co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru. The sugar and vanilla are also fairly traded and organic. The sugar comes from co-operatives in Paraguay and the vanilla from a co-operative in Madagascar.
Price (eco eggs): $5 per 12-count box
Price: (Equal Exchange): 20ct 4.5-g minis per 3.2oz box. for $6.99
I really loved the dark chocolate minis! They are so yummy!

Bear's Beauty is 100% Natural Hand-Made Small Batch Vegan Skin Care or the whole family! Essential Oils & Clays are suspended in a base of Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to give you a naturally fresh experience without chemicals!
Price:  $6 for 0.75 oz tube
I was very excited to try this deodorant. I love the idea of a chemical free deodorant, but I wasn't sure how well it would work. I have used it a few times and as far as I know, no one has known the difference! I do notice that because this is not an antiperspirant, you do notice that you sweat more than you would with traditional deodorants. 

The Eco Trek Whole Food Bars are created from nutrient-dense ingredients, avoiding refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. They contain a wide variety of green foods, and happen to be vegan & dairy-free too!
Price: $14 for box of 6 bars
I split this bar with my son and we both liked it a lot! It was yummy and it was nice to know that we could have a healthy snack without any artificial sweeteners.

Brigit True Organics is a woman-owned, organic skin care company that offers hypoallergenic body care for super-sensitive skin. Their whole line is gluten-free, soy-free and doesn't contain any nut oils.
Their Peppermint Lip Balm is crafted with soothing healing herbs to bring immediate comfort and long-lasting protection to sensitive, dry, or chapped lips.

Price: $5
As a woman with extremely sensitive skin, I truly appreciate product lines like Brigit True Organics. This lip balm works well and has a great flavor!

I did not find a product in the March/April Ecocentric Mom Box that I did not enjoy. Everything was great and all of the product brands were new to me. I love finding new products, especially ones that are good for me! I actually went online and ordered a box of the Country Choice Organic Oatmeal since I liked it so much!
Now, on to the value.
The Ecocentric Mom box is $24 every other month. I personally think this is a great deal. I do not have accurate process for the sample size items included in the box, but I still feel like all of the items inside would be valued at over $24.
Overall, I would highly recommend Ecocentric Mom Box to any Mom out there. There are 3 different types of boxes, so there is one for every mom. Pick from Mom, Pregnancy and Mom + Baby.
