*giftedbox I was very pleased to try and review the summer edition of the Happy Planet Box* which costs £20 plus p&p). Inside is an array of useful and gorgeous products scented with fruity and zesty scents - the true essence of summer! The eco friendly and sustainable contents which are carefully curated will make any green beauty lover very happy indeed. I think the contents are just great - useful as well as being in the treat category. Inside the box is a very handy information sheet which contains information about the products and the makers.
So now for a closer look..
From Heavenly Organics is their Organic Orange & Grapefruit Face Oil (£10.50 - 50ml) which is a very summery addition to the box. It's scented with zesty Organic Orange & Grapefruit Oils (this is summer in a bottle!). Formulated with a blend of sunflower and jojoba which provides your skin with natural antioxidant Vitamin A and E. It'll also help with cell regeneration, reduce large pores, firm and hydrate. This is lovely - expect a review soon. Glass bottle packaging is easily recyclable or re-usable (I received their foot balm in my one-off The Natural Beauty Box - see HERE). It's definitely a brand I'd like to explore more.
I'd first tried Cosy Cottage via my June 2018 Skin Organics Clean Beauty Box so it was nice to revisit. The texture of the Mango & Lemon Foot Balm 30ml (£7) seems to have been reformulated since I last used it as I found it smooth and silky. This is a beautiful foot balm which has a lovely fruity and zesty scent (makes a nice change from the usual peppermint!). LOVE! (again easily recyclable/reusable glass jar).
The next two products (which are new to me brands) are designed to be used together - Suma's Alter/Native Handmade Grapefruit & Mandarin Soap (£2.50 - 95g) which has a zesty fragrance which refreshes the skin. The bar is infused with calendula petals which soothe. The soap is 100% natural and palm oil free. The box is easily recyclable.
Use it with zero-waste friendly Naturally Evergreen's Exfoliating Soap Bag (£4) a really clever invention! Pop your soap in the bag and use in the bath or shower for an exfoliating treat. It's also perfect for holding all the little end pieces of soap (you always seem to be left with - with this bag you'll use up every last drop!)
The final item are 3 x single use plastic free fairtrade Clipper Teas Organic Pure Green Tea which bring a moment of calm to a busy life.
So there you have it, a great SUMMER box. Sign up HERE (I'll definitely be checking out the AUTUMN Happy Planet Box when it launches as I've really loved the carefully curated contents within SUMMER). Are you a subscriber?
