July Empties!

Another month has come and gone, and I am feeling good about the size of my stash and the amount of products I am using and enjoying! It is important to be happy with the size of your stash, and that you enjoy using your products and getting use out of them. If not, then what is the point, Ya feel me?

Neutrogena Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads: I did not think that I would like these, but I actually enjoyed them very much and would like to repurchase them! They are super easy to use, are big enough to cover both eyes, and have enough cleanser on them that they do not dry out. I highly recommend giving these a shot!

LUSH Aqua Marina: My holy grail facial cleanser! I won’t beat a dead horse, but I highly recommend this cleanser! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Bath Frosting in Put On Your Birthday Suit: I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar Bath Frostings! They are super luxurious, lather extremely well, and last forever. I always feel like a queen when using these products! Put On Your Birthday Suit smells amazing! It has scent notes of birthday cake, sage, fruit loops, and jasmine. I would definitely repurchase this product!

Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo: This was a very nice dry shampoo! It was volumizing, smelled nice, and left my hair feeling clean. I did feel like I needed to use a lot of product to get the effect that I wanted, which I did not enjoy. I will not be repurchasing this dry shampoo. I enjoy other dry shampoos more, and that are more affordable.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringue in Lemon Rose: I loved this! It smelled of fizzy lemons, sugar, and a hint of floral. I love Whipped Meringues. They are super moisturizing and the scent lasts for days on the skin. I highly recommend giving these a shot, and I will be repurchasing!

N०7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes: I enjoyed these! I am pretty picky about face wipes, but these were not bad! They had enough cleanser, so they were all equally saturated, and they did not leave a weird film on my face. They did not get all of my makeup off, which is a con, but they were decent. I would look into repurchasing these wipes.

We finished a candle! Scentsational in Midnight Woods: My partner loved this and used this in his office when he was gaming or working. It was a very nice scent. It smelled of plum, cedar wood, and amber. It is soy wax which is our preference for wax. We would definitely repurchase!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringue in Cabana Boy: Can you tell that I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar and their Whipped Meringues?! I didn’t love this scent at first, but it really grew on me. I kept this on my bedside table, and it was a nice relaxing scent to use at night. It smells of black peppercorn and cherry. Guys, try these lotions!

July Box of Sugar: Red, White, and Cute!

OH. MMM. GEE. Can Ahhh Sugar Sugar do no wrong? They can’t!! They continue to knock it out of the park and blow me away!! They exceed every expectation and standard that this subscription box has come to represent, and it has come to be a very major thing in the bath and body world! This subscription box has come to be one of the most coveted and sought after subscription box in the indie community and for good reason! Haley and the Sugar Shack crew make the most creative and inventive products for their Box of Sugar. They are also always so generous each month by including mostly (if not all) full-sized products. All of these things, make this a top notch subscription box and one that you should get in on! Now onto the products!

Resting Beach Face Whipped Meringue: As you know, I am a huge fan of Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s Whipped Meringue! It is super fluffy and moisturizing, without leaving your skin feeling greasy. You can feel the moisturizing properties and smell the scent notes on your skin for two days after application! It is a pretty amazing product! Resting Beach Face smells of the Hawaiian Tropic Suntan Lotion, and they got it spot on! It is all coconut, suntan lotion, and vacation!

Jessica, Tu As Mon Coeur Bath Frosting: Man, I do not know who this Jessica girl is, but she must be one bomb-a** girl to have TWO amazing scents created after her! This new “Jessica” scent in English means “Jessica, you have my heart.” It is scented with blackberries, apples, melon, and sugar. Right away, I get scent notes of apples and sweet melons, with the tart blackberries behind it all. Bath Frostings are one of Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s most creative and popular products. They are whipped soap with added sugar for extra exfoliation. They are extremely luxurious, lather very well and last forever!

Not Your Grannie’s Key Lime Pie Solid Shampoo Bar: GUYS!! A solid Shampoo Bar! Can you believe it?! I am so excited to try this, I just can’t even handle it! This has scent notes of lime, lemongrass, and sugar cookie crunch. To my nose, on cold, this smells a lot like avo bath bomb from LUSH. I am super excited to smell this in the heat of the shower, and see how the scent warms. This Shampoo Bar is huge and sounds like a real winner! Haley also included a soap saver with this shampoo bar, which is so thoughtful and extra! I love it!

‘Merica Bath Bomb Sprinkles: I love products like this! They are fun, cute products that easily upgrade the quality of your bath! These sprinkles come in a great little shaker container and smell amazing! Under the scent notes it says: equality is the soul of liberty. I get a light, fruity scent that I believe will pair well with almost any bath.

United Premium Bath Oil: I very much enjoy Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s bath oils. They are super luxurious and moisturizing and add a special touch to the bath. They also come in a cute little bear bottle. United has scent notes of amber, sandalwood, lavender, thyme, and musk. It is a very nice unisex fragrance and smells like a herbal garden. It is amazing and I cannot wait to add it to a bath! My partner will love this scent as well!

Again, I cannot say enough good things about Ahhh Sugar Sugar and their Box of Sugar subscription box! You get all the bang for your buck while trying brand new scents, old favorites and new inventions! What did you think of this month’s Box of Sugar?

June Box of Sugar: Tropic like it’s hot

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Box of Sugar is my favorite package to get every month! It is the perfect subscription box for anyone that loves bath and body products! You get four products every month, most of the time full-sized products, that are all curated for that month’s theme.

Twisted Boardwalk Whipped Meringue: Whipped Meringue’s are perfection! They are light and airy, with an intense level of moisture to keep your skin hydrated all day. Twisted Boardwalk has scent notes of yuzu, coconut, and strawberry daiquiri. This smells of a miami vice, but with a less sweet coconut scent, and sweet strawberry scent. It also has a slightly earthly note to it, which I am guessing is from the yuzu. Very excited to have this scent in my collection, it is perfect for summer!

Chasing Waterfalls Anywhere Spritzer: I love Anywhere Spritizers! I use them on my sheets, pillows, couches; anywhere that I feel I want to freshen up a room! Chasing Waterfalls has scent notes of cool water and juniper breeze. It is a nice clean, herbal scent that is just perfect for sheets and pillow cases. I cannot wait to break this out on a spring cleaning day to freshen up our bedroom!

Hot Guava Sparkling Shower Gel: Ahhh Sugar Sugar Shower Gels are amazing! They are super soft and luxurious feeling. Hot Guava smells of coconut, sweet vanilla, fresh guava, and pina colada. To my nose, I get a very very sweet, fruity, pina colada. I believe this was the most popular product/scent this month, and for good reason! It is absolutely stunning, with it’s neon peach color and gold biodegradable glitter and a fun tropical scent!

Vitamin Sea Premium Bath Bomb: I have been waiting for a bath bomb to show up again in a Box of Sugar, and man, was it worth the wait! This bath bomb is right up my ally too! I love all things citrus and fruity. This has scent notes of freshly peeled oranges, green apple, and fresh pear. It is one of the most vibrant bath bombs that I have ever seen and I am super excited to get it into the tub!

Iz Yew Mad Poolside Conditioning Spray: This is a new product from Ahhh Sugar Sugar and one that I am so excited to try! This is a leave-in hair conditioning spray to help soften and detangle after a long day in the hot sun or at the pool. I think this is genius! This has scent notes of pina colada and watermelon popsicle. This smells of sweet watermelon pina colada. I imagine this will be a light scent when sprayed on the hair. I can’t wait to see how this works and how the scent holds up in my hair.

This has been the perfect tropical theme Box of Sugar! Every month I am blown away by Ahhh Sugar Sugar, and I cannot ever imagine not wanting to continue with this subscription box! If you haven’t already, get your name on the waitlist for this box. You will not be disappointed!

May Box of Sugar: Happy Birthday, Uni-mer-cat!

It is that time of month again, Box of Sugar review time! This has been a much anticipated box for everyone that has been following along in the Facebook group! In this month’s box, we received 2 brand spankin’ new products along with the first ever soy wax candle to be featured in a box, and a regular line product. I am sad to say, I am pretty disappointed by this Box of Sugar though. I will explain why down below, so keep reading! If you loved this Box, I am so glad! All the reviews I have seen so far have all been positive, but everyone is different and allowed their own opinions. Now, onto the fun!

The first product is one of their new inventions; Fluff! This is their newest whipped soap scented in their very popular Yasss Hunny scent. I am not thrilled with this product, and it is mainly because of the packaging. I am so used to and spoiled by the frosted glass jars or even the plastic jars, that this plastic tub they gave us doesn’t jive well with me. This reminds me of a margarita salt container! The soap looks great, and I am sure it performs beautifully, but I cannot get over the packaging. The scent smells amazing, all orange, cake, and mallow. This is a popular scent for a reason! I get a strong scent of the soap through the fragrance though, so I am curious to see how that plays in the heat of the shower.

Fantasea Solid Bubble Bar is a beautifully crafted mermaid tail, that smells like coconut, fruit and musk. I cannot wait to get this in my bath and see how blue it makes my water! My mermaid tale came broken, but that is okay, I will be cutting it all up anyway!

We have another new product with Blueberry Yum Yum Lustre Custard. This is their famous custard recipe with lots of added shimmer to make this beautiful product! I love a good shimmer body lotion, and I do not feel like there are enough of these products on the market. Blueberry Yum Yum is supposed to smell like Blueberry donuts and coconut sprinkles. I smell sun tan lotion. I love the scent of Blueberry, and I am not a big fan of coconut. The scent may change over time though. We also got just a little baby 2 oz size. Most boxes in the past, I feel as if we have gotten at least 4 oz sizes.

Put on your Birthday Suit Soy Candle: This is a collaboration with the The Barn at Post Oak. I am so excited to receive a candle, and I love this scent! This smells of sweet birthday cake, with grounding sage to take the edge off. This is my favorite product from this month’s box! My unicorn did come not attached to my lid, but that is okay, I can hot glue it. I still have their Birthday Suit Bath Frosting from last years Box of Sugar!

Overall, I think that this box has amazing ideas and creations, they just weren’t really for me. With the packaging of the fluff and the size of the Lustre Custard, I do not feel like we got an amazing value for our dollar. The candle is amazing, as is the bubble bar, but they can’t carry the whole box. I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar, and continue to support and promote them on my pages, but this just wasn’t for me, and that is okay. I would love to hear your thoughts on this month’s Box of Sugar! Were you disappointed or blown away?

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!
