Happy Planet Box - Autumn 2020

Sunday, October 25, 2020


We all know by now how much I love subscription boxes and one of my recent favourites is an eco-friendly box from The Evolution. I reviewed the Summer box back in August and loved it so I was very happy to try the new *Happy Planet Autumn Box (£20). Just a little update for the Summer box, I am still using and loving the soap saver bag from the box - it is such a simple but useful product that I can't believe I haven't seen before! As always, if you want to see sneak peeks of my upcoming posts or my blogger/PR mail, make sure you follow me (@ofbeautyand) on Instagram. 

*Revitalising Raspberry Lip Scrub by Pura Cosmetics (£4.99)
The theme for the box is 'prepare for winter' which is perfect as the colder days are coming and the clocks have changed. The cold definitely affects my skin as well as my lips so an exfoliating lip scrub is ideal and very needed. I have only tried the lip scrubs from Lush and I like them but this one is even better as it smells heavenly, it is pink and it is very effective!

*Chocolate Orange Lip Balm by White Rabbit (£7)
After using an exfoliating lip scrub you need to add back the moisture and this one is so nourishing. It contains sweet almond and orange essential oils, it is vegan friendly and cruelty free. I personally don't love the scent or taste of chocolate orange in anything so this combination isn't one I'd choose for myself but it is a lovely lip balm. 
*Peppermint Mint by Peppersmith (£1.99)
Moving onto a couple of refreshing peppermint products, the first is a packet of peppermint mints that are free from added sugar, preservatives, plastic and colours. It is sweetened with xylitol which is plant based. I don't typically eat mints but these have been a staple in my handbag for the past couple of weeks as they are very handy to have and they refreshing and reviving. 

*Peppermint and Poppy Seed Soap by Friendly (£2.25)
The final peppermint product and the penultimate item in the Autumn 2020 box is a handmade soap containing natural ingredients sourced from ethical suppliers. I don't shower in the mornings but I think this soap would be am amazing wake up call if you do - I love the fresh and clean scent! 
*Organic Lavender Hand Balm by Heavenly Organics (£8.40)
Last but not least is the product that contains my favourite scent of all time, lavender. I'm instantly drawn too anything that contains lavender as, for me, it is the most relaxing and calming scent possible so the more products I have that contain it, the better. I have started to develop eczema on my hands again (not on my face thankfully) after over a year without it so anything that can help my very dry and sore hands is always welcome. It's a lovely balm, especially when used in the evenings or before bed, and it has been helping my hands feel less tight and dry. 

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of The Happy Planet Autumn box?
