Happy Planet Summer Box 2020

Saturday, August 29, 2020


We all know how much I love subscription boxes, from food boxes (DegustaBox) to beauty boxes (LookFantastic and Latest In Beauty) but there's one that combines a few of my favourite things! The Happy Planet box from The Evolution contains a variety of vegan and cruelty free beauty and lifestyle products in one sustainability and eco-friendly focused box. 

I was very kindly sent the *Happy Planet Summer 2020 Box (£23.50, including shipping) which contains a selection of natural, eco-friendly and vegan beauty products as well as a couple of lifestyle items, all of which I couldn't wait to try, especially as the products smell very summery and fresh! For more information, check out The Evolution website linked above. 

*Organic Pure Green Tea by Clipper
There's a little extra within the summer box and it is a trio of delicious green tea bags from Clipper. I've tried a few flavours of tea from Clipper and I've loved all of them so I'm sure this one will be lovely too. Clipper is a fair-trade tea brand with plastic free tea bags which is fantastic - they have developed what is thought to be the first plastic free tea bag as it is composed of natural and plant based materials. 

*Exfoliating Soap Bag (£4)
The most interesting and unique item within the box is an exfoliating soap bag which is such a unique but very practical product that I can't believe I haven't seen before. You place your soap within the bag and it can be used to not only lather the soap and store it securely but also exfoliate the skin as the bag is composed of natural plant fibres. The bag also has a drawstring tie which makes it very easy to store and dry out in the bathroom too. 
*Organic Orange and Grapefruit Facial Oil (£10.50)
Onto the skincare and body care items, the first is a heavenly scented facial oil. It is made of sunflower and jojoba oils as well as essentials oils, all of which are natural and vegan. The scent of the product is so lovely and perfect for summer. It is a lovely oil and I've actually been using it on my nails (which have been suffering during lockdown) and drier areas of my skin. Sadly it is a little messy, unless I use a cotton bud to apply the oil, otherwise it's a fantastic, vegan friendly multi-use oil. 

*Handmade Grapefruit and Mandarin Soap (£2.50)
The penultimate item is another that reminds me instantly of summer! The scent of this handmade soap is my favourite out of all the products within the summer box, although the scent of the mango and lemon foot balm is a very close second. The soap is palm oil free (yes!), 100% natural and it contains calendula petals to create a soothing and gentle soap. 
*Mango and Lemon Foot Balm (£7)
Last but not least is the cutest little balm which, like everything else in the box, smells wonderful. It contains coconut oil, mango butter and moisturising aloe vera to exfoliate and soften the skin. I've been using the balm for the past week or so and I love how soft it leaves my skin, whether I use it as intended or on drier areas of my skin such as my elbows and cuticles. 

Overall, I'm very impressed with the Happy Planet summer box! All of the products are cruelty free and vegan (which is something I'm always looking for in the products I use) and they smell fantastic as well. My favourite product has to be either the exfoliating soap bag or the mango and lemon foot balm.
