Fed up with receiving beauty products that you’ll never use? Beauty In The Box from Greenecobox is a different kind of beauty subscription box that’s aimed at those who want to live a more eco-friendly and less wasteful lifestyle. Released bi-monthly instead of monthly to allow you time to actually use up the products so that they don’t build up in your bathroom or clutter your bedroom, Beauty In The Box showcases some amazing ethical and artisan natural brands which makes the boxes so interesting to open up!
Greenecobox will also donate to two different campaigns/charities on your behalf with the purchase of each box. This month’s chosen projects are OneTreePlanted (one tree will be planted for you in Amazonia) and you’ll receive a certificate of proof in your box, and €4 will be donated to Amazon Watch to help protect the indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforests.

Soapology Secret Garden Soap
Cutting down on your plastic waste? A good old solid bar of soap can definitely help and this one is made by the English brand, Soapology. Their palm-oil free Secret Garden Soap has been formulated with gardeners in mind as it has a fresh floral and herbal natural fragrance thanks to the addition of Lavender, Lime and Rosemary essential oils. There’s also a scattering of Poppyseeds included to help gently scrub away any garden grime and I just love the colourful pattern!
The Highland Soap Company Wild Nettle & Heather Shampoo
Next up, I found a bottle of shampoo from another British brand, The Highland Soap Company. This shampoo has a nutrient-rich organic blend of natural ingredients to really help to hydrate and strengthen weak and damaged hair. Aloe Vera adds essential moisture, whilst Lavender and Chamomile extracts add volume and shine. Made with over 70% organic ingredients, it features a gorgeous fresh scent of Heather which are sourced from the Scottish Highlands.
Deko D’Acc Organic Powder Toothpaste
Did you know that most mainstream tubes of toothpaste are difficult to recycle? Why not try this Organic Powder Toothpaste instead? Packaged in a recyclable tin, this French artisan brand has developed a clever 100% natural and vegan-friendly organic powder which can be used in place of regular toothpaste. Formulated with purifying powders that remineralize the tooth enamel, soothe and refresh the mouth and gums, it protects and strengthens even sensitive teeth.
The Soap Shop Banana Delight Pumice Foot Scrub Bar
The last main product is another plastic-free delight and is wrapped simply in paper. This Banana Delight Pumice Foot Scrub Bar from the English artisans, The Soap Shop, will keep your feet smelling fresh and feeling super soft! Packed with ground Pumice and with a delicious Banana and Vanilla scent, try it the next time you’re having a little pamper moment at home!
Greenecobox has included some extras; two tea bag samples from Higher Living Organic in English Breakfast and Digest Delight, and a box of delicious French artisan biscuits – yum!
