Juniperseed Merchantile Order Review

After receiving my Eco Emi Special Edition Cleaning Box, I started stocking one of the companies featured (Juniperseed Merchantile) and decided to place an order!

The Order:

The Review:

Ecofriendly Washable Trio of Damp or Dry Mopping Pads – 3 pads – $10

I purchased these to replace the swiffer dry pads that I have been using for our hard floors – and they work great!  I used one this weekend and know these will be a permanent replacement for me!  Not sure if I’ll try them wet or not (we have a Norwex mop that I like to use for wet floors).  This also came with a free sample bottle of the floor cleaner concentrate!

Flannel Unpaper Towels – half a dozen 8″ x 10″ – $13

So far, these have been a hit!  We decided to use as napkins instead of paper towels (they are actually smaller then I thought they’d be) – but they are awesome for napkin replacements!  My only problem is we only have 6!  Ha!

Soothe Your Sniffer Peppermint and Eucalyptus Shea Butter – 1 oz – $5

Haven’t really used this item yet (that’s a good thing!) so don’t have much to say here!

Mineral Unscented Sunscreen – 4 oz – $14

 Haven’t tried this item yet either – but I’m sure I will as we get out more this summer! Update – I tried this item, and warning, it leaves a VERY prominent white coating everywhere.  Does not absorb into the skin at all.  I will still use this, just will need to make sure I only use it when I’m not planning on leaving the house for anything!  I can’t attest to how well it works, as I wiped it all off (more like scrubbed, it didn’t go easy) and put different sunscreen on (my legs were glowing with the white coating).

Ecofriendly Furniture Dusting Spray – 8 oz – $6

Used this dusting spray this weekend and LOVED it!  I actually purchased two of these, but they missed one in my first order – and email to the company and it was here like 2 days later!!  Amazing customer service! 🙂  But back to the dusting spray – amazing.  Seriously.  I shall never use pledge again!

The Extras Shown Above:

Floor Cleaner Concentrate – small bottle 

As stated above, received this with my floor cleaning pads!  I’m sure it’ll get used, just haven’t had the chance yet!

Sink and Tub Scrub – sample 

Haven’t tried this sample yet, but will be used the next time we clean the tub! 🙂

The Verdict:

I am in LOVE with everything that I’ve tried that I received in my order and am already stalking some other items on their site!  And the best part?  Free shipping over orders of $50+!  Highly recommend everyone to check out their site here!


Boxes and Things Coming this Way!

Apparently my debit card was burning a hole in my pocket, because sheesh I seem to have been ordering a lot of things lately!  I wanted to share some of them with you now (will post reviews when they arrive!)  SO what’s headed this way?

PLUS, I scored 3 samples for purchasing over $25 AND a deluxe sunscreen sample with code “protect”!  Unfortunately this box has already sold out, but I’m SOO happy that I was able to snag one before that happened!  My skin will thank me 🙂

Juniperseed Mercantile – this was one of the brands featured in the Eco Emi Spring Cleaning Special Edition box – once I went to the website, I knew I had to place an order!  And right now they have free shipping on orders over $50!  What’s coming my way?

– Unpaper Towels – I ordered the half dozen size to see if we could commit to using reusable towels instead of paper towels or napkins.  If these are a hit, we’ll be back for more!

– Washable Damp or Dry Mop pads to replace my swiffer sweepers!  Hardwood floors + dogs = lots of fur!  I’m hoping these are a viable replacement!

– Ecofriendly Furniture Dusting Spray – because, why not?  I actually ordered two of these!  HA!

– Mineral Unscented Sunscreen – more sunscreen you ask?  Well, yeah, I have very fair complexion and after a strict warning from my dermatologist, I can’t get enough sunscreen!

– Soothe Your Sniffer Peppermint and Eucalyptus Shea Butter – to help with stuffy and runny noses.  Allergy season is here – so thought I’d give this a try too!

Will post the full review once these products arrive!

Limited Edition: Free for All

Birchbox Order – So I’ve been hemming and hawing over whether or not to purchase the “Free for All” Limited Edition box from Birchbox – and decided that the only two products in the box that I couldn’t live without were the Karma Organic Spa Nail Polish Remover with Soybean Oil and Tea Tree Oil and eco-armour Shave with Benefits Shave Foam with Mint + Eucalyptus, so just decided to place an order for these two items (Full Size of course)!  I spent $31 (prior to any discounts) for these two versus the $44 for the entire box that only contained sample sizes of these.  I’d consider that a win (although I will miss not having the tea! – received these in a swap and they are amazing!)  Husband also picked up some eshu pre-shave oil ($15) and of course we got the free sample pack on orders over $35.  The best part? With coupon code “welcomeoffer20” and my birchbox rewards points, the total order was like $6.  I love rewards programs 🙂

And lastly – although it’s something I already received – I have to wax on about Octavia Tea again.  I love this stuff.  Seriously love.  I thought that I liked Keurig tea until my mom got me hooked on this stuff.  It’s sooo yummy!!!  I’m enjoying the Tropical Ambrosia now 🙂
