A Year of Ethical Beauty Boxes: 2018 in Review


I've come to acknowledge last year as the 'year of the subscription' for me -- I had so many boxes, and I reviewed the majority here on The ecoLogical.  So let's treat today's post like a year in review!

I'll be running through every ethical subscription box I got in 2018 (not counting a few one off boxes I treated myself to like the LowToxBox collections), and making a sort of visual diary of all the fabulous edits I unboxed throughout the year.  And of course I would love to know what your favourites were in the comments! xx

It was a wonderful year, and I discovered so many amazing brands and boxes over the twelve month period.  I loved finding new natural, cruelty free, and vegan friendly products every few weeks, plus there were so many organic and plastic free goodies represented!  I honestly I loved opening up each of these ethical subscriptions, and I am looking forward to another year of brilliant boxes!

Like I mentioned, 2019 will probably have fewer unboxings -- I need to work through my massive collection so nothing goes wasted, plus I don't currently have a regular income and need to be careful with my spending.  But I will obviously be reviewing the collections I do get!

What was your favourite subscription of 2018??  Any memorable edits you want to shout out or share??  Let me know!  And if you have any suggestions for boxes I need to check out, send them my way.

  1. This was really fun to see all the different boxes for the year. I've never heard of Stars & Sage so will have to check that one out. I wish I had endless money to subscribe to them all! They are all so gorgeous subscriptions. :D

    1. I was very lucky to get so many last year- basically any time I sold a little bundle of items I couldn't/wouldn't use, I then bought a new box 🙈 Stars & Sage is one to keep an eye on for sure. sometimes I LOVE the edits, other times not so keen. but they always do a fab job at representing smaller brands x
