April Box of Sugar: Spring Clean your mind, body, & soul.

Man, oh man, did Ahhh Sugar Sugar throw us some new products this month! They are killing it with their product innovation! We also received 5 full-sized products again! Are we spoiled or what?

The first product is their most popular seller, their beloved bath frosting. Let’s Get Down, dawg Bath Frosting is a beautiful, delicate clean scent that smells of powdered laundry and citrus. This bath frosting is said to have scent notes of cucumber, melon, lemon balm, and vanilla cream musk. This smells exactly like their 7pm in Charleston Salt Scrub to my nose! You can’t go wrong with Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s Bath Frostings.

I am loving that Ahhh Sugar Sugar sneaks these perfume oils into our BOS! (You are) Pearfection Perfume oil smells like sweet pears. I am excited to see how this scent warms up on the skin with the added violet and sage to this scent.

Fresh to the Core Whipped Meringue is a delightful fruity scent that is perfect for spring and summer! This has scent notes of apple, melon, peach, and delicate white flower. I smell apple and melon with white flower underneath the fruit. This Whipped Meringue is in their new format with the squeeze tube instead of the pot.

These next two products are to be used as a set. We have Posh Lyfe Hand and Foot Scrub and Clean Slate Foot Mask. Posh Lyfe smells like lemon and lavender martini. It has sea salt to exfoliate and sweet almond oil and coconut oil to moisturize and soften. Clean Stale smells of lavender, orange, and cotton. It has french green clay to detox and clarify skin along with kaolin clay to soothe and soften.

I think Ahhh Sugar Sugar has the best subscription box on the market, and every month I am blown away by their innovation and creativity. If you haven’t already, get your name on their waiting list!

April Empties

I am amazed with the amount of empties that I have been using up these past few months! I am definitely not complaining, because I have a lot to get through, just surprised with how much I have been using!

Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo: I did not enjoy this product. It made my hair sticky and did not soak up the oils in my hair. It also smelled strongly of green apples. I will not be repurchasing this.

LUSH Kitchen Ponche Shower Gel: My partner used this up, and I am sad to this go! This was a LUSH Kitchen exclusive from two Christmases ago. I loved this smell, especially on my partner, and it reminds me of LUSH Christmases past.

Nо7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes: I enjoyed these wipes! They do not leave a residue on my face, and they get the majority of my makeup off. I do not know if I like them as much as my Simple face wipes, but they were not bad. I would repurchase them in the future.

L’ORÉAL Total Repair Damage-Erasing Balm: I love hair masks! They are so useful and necessary for my hair. This hair masks helps provide deep moisture for my hair, and allows me to extend the time in between haircuts. I have used this hair masks for years, and I highly recommend it.

Nature Made Vitamin C: I have used up my Vitamin C! I regularly take Vitamin C, D, and a Women’s multivitamin. This was a good Vitamin C, and I would recommend.

LUSH Kitchen Happy Blooming Body Lotion: I very much enjoy Lush Kitchen lotions. They are very light on the skin, fast absorbing, and super moisturizing. I very much enjoy the Happy Blooming scent, and I would repurchase if they ever make it again.

L’ORÉAL Ever Pure Shampoo and Conditioner: I received these from Influenster for the purpose of reviewing. I very much enjoyed these! They made my hair soft and smooth, and I could not stop using them! I highly recommend them.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringue in Saturday A.M. Cartoons: I very much enjoyed this scent and I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringues! I thought at first, this scent would be too sweet for me as a lotion, but I used this as a night cream and it was a very nice, soothing, sweet touch before bed.

LUSH Aqua Marina: I have spoken about this too many times! It is my holy grail face cleanser, and it works way to well for me to try anything else. Just try it, people!

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water: I very much enjoyed this! This took off any left over makeup without leaving a greasy feeling on my face. My one issue with this product was that it would burn my eyes at times. I would repurchase this product.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Sugar Slushie in Grape Bubblegum: The more I use sugar slushies, the more I enjoy them! This scent is absolute perfection! I would repurchase anything in this scent!

Scoopable Tart Wax in Blueberry Buckle Cake: I really enjoy this scent! I love the scent of blueberries! I very much enjoy scoopable wax, but I will not repurchase this. I am trying to transition to soy-based wax only.

LUSH Eau Roma Water: I enjoy this Toner Water when my face is feeling extra dehydrated and sensitive. I keep a small bottle on hand for those times of need. It is super gentle and hydrating. You can even put this on after makeup and it does not disturb anything.

Jouer Conditioning Lip Treatment: I very much enjoyed this lip balm. It was very nourishing and hydrating. I would not repurchase though. I have drugstore lip treatments that work just as well.

LUSH Yummy Mummy Shower Cream: I enjoyed this shower cream, but it was not a favorite. This was from two Mother’s Days ago. This is a cult favorite for a lot of LUSH fans, and they did not bring it back this year.

Bodycology Blackberry Vanilla Body Spray: This smelled just like B&BW Black Raspberry Vanilla. I received this as a stocking stuffer from my Grandparents a few years ago. It was a nice body spray.

March Box of Sugar: Hop into Spring!

Did this Box of Sugar’s arrival take anyone else by surprise? March totally slipped by and I was shocked when this showed up at my house! I did not have any expectations on this Box of Sugar, so it is all a pleasant surprise! Also, FIVE full sized products!! I mean, can the Ahhh Sugar Sugar Shack Crew get any better!

Peep Show Sugar-Free Frosting: I have a few Sugar-Free frostings in my stash, but I have yet to use one. I love the original Bath Frostings, so I am sure I will love the Sugar-Free ones, just haven’t broken one out yet. Peep Show has scent notes of marshmallow peeps, sugar cookie, black raspberry, and pink sugar. I love this scent! It smells of pink sugar and black raspberry with a hint of sweetness at the end. I am very excited to get this in the shower!

Don’t Be So Vanilla Sugar Slushie: I do not love sugar slushies, I just cannot seem to get them to work the way I imagine them too. Although, the more I use them, the more I am slowly figuring them out. Don’t Be So Vanilla has scent notes of powdered vanilla musk, pink carnation, amber, and teakwood. You get hints of the pink carnation, amber, and wood with the powdered vanilla musk over it all. It is a very interesting scent and I get why it is the staff pick this month!

Dapper Little Bunny Sink Soap: I love a good hand soap! Can you really go wrong with a hand soap? This is a very nice delicate, clean scent and I cannot wait to break it out when Spring finally makes its appearance in Illinois! This cute little soap has scent notes of white tea, ginger, and plumeria.

Spill the Tea Solid Bubble Bath: I love bubbles! They are my favorite part of the bath. This is scented in moroccan mint tea, and I am super excited to pair this with a minty bath bomb! It is all pastel colors and silver glitter, which make it absolutely gorgeous!

Krispie Cottontail Bath Bomb Sprinkles: I have really started to love Bath Bomb Sprinkles! They are such an easy way to make a fun bathing experience, without having to put much thought into picking the right bath bomb and bubble bar to pair. This is scented in marshmallow rice krispie treats and juicy gummy bears. I cannot wait to get this into the bath and see the orange bath water with that sweet scent! The Sugar Shack Crew are also insanely creative, and even made this product to look like a carrot!

Overall, I think this is a great box, with something in it for everyone! I also cannot believe how lucky we all are with getting FIVE full-sized products and getting to lovingly partake in the Ahhh Sugar Sugar teams creative and inventive bath and shower fun.

Hint for April Theme: Spring Clean your mind, body & soul. Is anyone else super stoked for some clean, delicate, maybe even a little woodsy/herbally scented products!? I know I am!

March Empties

I have so many empties this month and I am so happy about it! I am super excited to be working through my stash and getting use out of my products! Does anyone else love using up products?!

Shea Moisture Rescue and Repair Clarifying Shampoo: I did not like this at all. I had to use so much product just to work it through all of my hair. I did not feel like it truly clarified my hair or even got all of the product in it out. I will not be repurchasing, and I am looking for a new clarifying shampoo. Does anyone have any recommendations?

LUSH Tea Tree Toner Water: Do I need to say anything else about this? It is amazing and you need to try it!

Bath Bake Love Eggnog Bath Glaze: This is the first product that I have tried from Bath Bake Love, and I love it! This is an in-shower body conditioner. This was super moisturizing, and smelled amazing! The scent lasts on the skin for hours, and I would definitely repurchase!

Candy Panda Wax Dream Machine Whipped Body Scrub: This is my first time trying a whipped scrub from Candy Panda Wax, and I loved it! It is as good as everyone says, and there is a reason why people rave about them! I love the scent Dream Machine. It is all lavender and HIWTK goodness! I will be repurchasing.

Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo: If you know me, you know my love affair with NYM’s Dry Shampoo. I have been using and loving that product for so long, I felt the need to branch out and see what else the dry shampoo community had for me. I did not love this product and I would not repurchase. It is super sticky and does not absorb oil that well. It has a very strong green apple scent too.

LUSH Dreamwash Shower Smoothie: I loved this more than I thought I would! It has a very nice, calming, relaxing lavender scent. It was not super moisturizing, which normally I do not like, but I did not mind it with this. It was super creamy and calming to use on long days and the product lasted a while, since I did not use it every time I showered. I would repurchase, but I am not sure it is still available.

Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume: I did not like this, and I forced myself to finally use it up. I was way to sweet for me, and at the end of it, you could really smell the alcohol. I would not repurchase.

Dove Curls Defining Mousse: I was pleasantly surprised by this product! It was a nice whipped texture, that smoothed easily through my hair. It did not leave my hair crunchy, but left it soft and manageable. It took care of my frizz, and left my curls defined. I would repurchase.

Young Living Thieve Essential Oil: I love this stuff! It has a nice spicy scent, and I use it when I am sick. It really helps to kick a cold or flu, before it gets worse. I defuse the oil and/or put it on the bottoms of my feet. I highly recommend looking into essential oils.

Nature Made Vitamin D Supplement: I take vitamin D with my vitamin C. I have read that taking them together helps your body absorb the vitamin C. I have yet to pick up another bottle of it, and I running low on my vitamin C, so I will be making a purchase here soon.

Bath and Body Works Stress Relief Aromatherapy Bath and Massage Oil: I very much enjoyed this. It was great to add to baths and my partner and I enjoyed using this for massages. I do not know that I will pick this up again, but I recommend trying it!

OLLY The Perfect Women’s Multi: I have used up another bottle of these! I feel really good about using these, and I feel like I have my life together when regularly taking a multivitamin. Does anyone else ever feel that way? I highly recommend trying these!

February Box of Sugar: Kiss me, I’m a Sugar Baby!

For those of you who follow Ahhh Sugar Sugar, and/or receive their Boxes of Sugar you might have noticed some up-set on last month’s Box of Sugar. Several people shared their dislike for last month’s Box of Sugar, and praised this month’s Box of Sugar. So many people had something to say, that a pole was created by an admin on their Facebook site. They wanted to know what people liked about this months and last month’s Box of Sugar and what they wanted from future Boxes of Sugar.

I personally have enjoyed almost every Box of Sugar that I have received, and the ones that I have not, I simply sell. I never really have a problem if I do not like a Box of Sugar, because not everything will always be to my taste. But apparently, last month’s Box of Sugar was an issue for enough people that it caused a stir. What do you think of all of this news? Now onto this month’s Box of Sugar!

Queen Maeve’s Cake Liquid Bubble Bath: This is a very interesting scent blend with rainforest and pineapple upside down cake. The pineapple upside down cake offers a very sweet and bakery scent while the rainforest offers a semi-clean scent. It is very interesting! I am excited to try this Liquid Bubble Bath! Bubbles are my favorite part of the bath, and I can’t wait to see how this work! I also love how they showcase a website on the bottle that is working to save the rainforest! I truly believe if we can get everyone involved we can make a HUGE difference!

Drunken Leprechaun Bath Frosting: I love Bath Frosting, and I especially love when I get them in my Box of Sugar! They last forever, so it really makes the price of the Box of Sugar go up in my book! Drunken Leprechaun is such an interesting scent combo. They have it listed as Peach Sangria and Lucky Charms. On cold, I get a Smarties Candy scent. I am very curious to see how it smells when the heat from the shower warms it up!

SHEnanigans Whipped Meringue: I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringues and now they come in 6 oz tubes! Lucky us! I quite enjoy this scent! It is red berries, vanilla sugar, wild apple tree, and peach! It has all the fruity feels! I can really smell the apple and peach on first sniff! The red berries and vanilla musk are underneath it all and really balance it out well.

Emerald City Premium Bath Bomb: This is such a pretty blue color, and I cannot wait to see how it colors the water. It is also dipped into cocoa butter, so it will be super moisturizing and luxurious in the tub! It is scented in blue agave and cherry lemonade which will make for a sweet, fruity bath!

This was a great box, and like always, I am in awe of Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s creativity and enginuity! They continue to surprise and amaze me. I cannot wait to see where they continue to go! What are your thoughts on this month’s Box of Sugar?

February Empties

February is over and it was a much better month then January! It flew by! I do not enjoy it when the months crawl by, especially because I have some big life events happening this summer! Does anyone else have anything exciting happening in the near future? Now on to the empties!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Sticky Buns Bath Frosting: I finally finished this! I felt like I was using this for months, when actually I was probably only using it for 2 months. These Bath Frostings from Ahhh Sugar Sugar are super luxurious and they last forever! I very much enjoyed this scent! It was a sweet cinnamon scent. I must say though, at the end of the jar, I found it a little too sweet. I will definitely be picking this up again when it comes around for next season.

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips: I enjoyed these! They helped pull all the gunk out of my pores. They did leave a black stain on my nose. I do not know that I would pick this up again, just because I am curious to try other products.

The Dirty Goat Moisturizing Scrub in Stella: I loved this scent! It is absolutely one of my favorite scents that TDG has made! I would love this in a perfume or lotion! I very much enjoy TDG moisturizing scrubs. They are very effective and yet super moisturizing. I often do not feel the need for lotion after using this. I will definitely be picking more of the TDG products up!

The Witch Baby September Moon Body Butter: September Moon scent was in Caramel Latte. I very much enjoyed this scent. This was my first Witch Baby purchase. I do enjoy their products, but I did not enjoy this one. I find that the “thick whip” version of their body butter is too much for me. I do not enjoy waiting for the lotion to sink in or thick wet feeling of it on my skin. I want to purchase the other version of their body butter and see how I enjoy that!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Wonderland Whipped Meringue: I got this in a 4oz size from a Box of Sugar. I very much enjoyed this! I had this on my bedside table and would use this at night before bed. It was in the scent green tea+aloe+lavender. I would not normally pick this scent up, so I am so glad that I was sent this! I very much enjoyed this scent and I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s Whipped Meringues.

Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash: My partner used this up, so I got his opinion for this review! He very much enjoyed the scent of it, but he found that it was too “creamy” for him. He does not like overly moisturizing body products. I was given this by my parents, which I love that they give us things we need! We will not be repurchasing this though, because we have several other body washes to use up!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Shower Creme in Spiked Lemonade: This was the first Shower Creme that Ahhh Sugar Sugar came out with and I received it in a Box of Sugar! People you have got to get on that Box of Sugar train! I very much enjoyed this product! I felt that it moisturized well and was very easy to use, thanks to the Sugar Shack for the product design! This was a in a squeeze bottle, which I think is amazing for shower use! The scent was a very nice, light, delicate scent that lasted on the skin for hours! I get a sugar and pink lemonade scent. One thing that I found with this product, and I wonder if others had this problem too, I could not get all of the product out of the bottle. Did anyone else have this same issue? I do not have a lot left in the bottle, but I like to get as much use as I can out of my products. I would repurchase this product!

Lucid Living Co Dead Sea Salt Detox Soak in Naked: This stuff was amazing! I used this in a bath when I was sick, and it helped immensely! It is a very calming and soothing blend. It smells strongly of Rosemary. I will be repurchasing this in the near future! If you have not already, check out Lucid Living and some of their products!

Victoria’s Secret Perfume in Scandalous Dare: I used this as my “work perfume.” I choose a work perfume so that I can have a perfume that I am consistently using and it also helps me cut down on having to make a choice before I go to work! This scent was a nice floral scent.

Victoria’s Secret Perfume in Incredible: This is one of my all-time favorite perfume! I have loved this for years and they no longer sell it! This a nice fruity, floral, musky scent. I have one backup of this left, and after that I am going to have to go on a hunt for it!

January Empties!

January seems to be the longest month! Does anyone else feel that way? Several times throughout the month, I stopped to ask “Is this month over yet?”….. But I digress. We are here to take a look at my empties for the month! I love when I finally finish a product, move it out of my collection, get to pull something else out, and rotate around my collection. There is just something so satisfying to me about finishing something and getting to pick something else out to use!

I do not feel like I used that many products up this month, but I did use some tried and true ones and a few newer items!

I used up an Ahhh Sugar Sugar Dreamsicle Sugar Scrub, and if you know me or have ever read one of my empties post, then you know that I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s Sugar Scrubs! They have one of the best sugar scrubs on the market! It is super course, and yet moisturizing to the skin. The Dreamsicle scent seriously smells just like the childhood favorite popsicle in the same name. A super delicate and fruity/creamy scent! I will always repurchase Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s sugar scrubs.

Buttermilk Bath Salts in Prosesso Berries from The Bathing Garden: I very much enjoyed the scent of these bath salts, they smell like fizzy berries, but I did not notice that they added much scent or color to my bath. I do not know that I would repurchase this product. I was a little underwhelmed by it. The Bathing Garden does do some good scrubs, and I need to remember to purchase more of those!

Is it any surprise that I have a Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo in my empties? What more can I say about this product…. It soaks up all the excess oils, gives my hair added volume, and it smells clean. If you haven’t already, try this dry shampoo! You will not be disappointed! I am trying different dry shampoos right now, but I will repurchase this.

Sugar Slushie in Queen City Vice from Ahhh Sugar Sugar: I really want to like Sugar Slushies, but I have not quite figured out how I like to use them. I have several more Sugar Slushies in my collection to try, so, for now, I will not be repurchasing Sugar Slushies. This smelled amazing, like coconut and strawberries!

Simple Micellar Make-up Remover Wipes: These are the best wipes that I have tried! They stay moist, they get rid of all my makeup, does not break me out or leave a film on my face, and they are super affordable! I always come back to these wipes and continue to repurchase them.

This is a little bit of a different one, but I thought I would include my OLLY The Perfect Women’s Multi. I do not normally like multi-vitamins, they tend to upset my stomach, but these taste amazing and do not upset my stomach. I have already repurchased them, and I recommend giving them a shot!

Zoetic Petal Drops Facial Oil: I loved this! It is super moisturizing and light on your skin. It comes in a beautiful glass dropper with dried flower petals in it. It absorbs nicely into my skin, and moisturizes my face without breaking me out or making me oily. I prefer oils to cream moisturizers, and this is my Holy Grail right now! I have already repurchased this product and will continue to do so. I highly recommend giving this a shot!

LUSH Aqua Marina: This is another Holy Grail product! Can I say anymore about this that I haven’t already? It is perfect for sensitive skin. It cleanses my face nicely, does not break me out, and keeps my oils at bay without stripping my skin. I have already repurchased and will continue to do so!

Dermalogica Precleanse Balm: My skin therapist recommended this to me, so I thought I would give it a try! It was alright. It did take my makeup off, but I find that I enjoy a cleansing oil more than a cleansing balm. I do not believe that I will repurchase this item. I am going to go back to a cleansing oil.

Frozen Custard in Queen Tea from Ahhh Sugar Sugar: I loved this! This is the first Frozen Custard that I have tried from Ahhh Sugar Sugar, and I was thoroughly impressed! I might even like this more than their Whipped Meringues. Queen Tea was a very nice delicate tea scent with a nice undertone of orange blossom and lemon pound cake. I will definitely be repurchasing more Frozen Custards from Ahhh Sugar Sugar! Would you guys be interested in reading a blog about the differences in Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s Whipped Meringues and Frozen Custards? If you do, let me know in the comments!

What products did you guys use up in January? Did you love them or hate them? I seriously love empties videos and posts! I hope your January was great and that your year is off to an amazing start! I’ll see you guys next time!
