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?

Zoetic Gravity Bath Salts

Bath salts are an excellent way to help relieve muscle soreness and built up toxins in the muscles. Bath Salts help to relieve stress and add benefits to a regular ole’ bath. I work on my feet for hours at a time, and at one time I had a massage therapist tell me that if I could not get a massage regularly that I should be taking regular epsom salt baths to help relieve muscle tension and the built up toxins in my muscles!

Zoetic is an amazing company that puts so much thought and effort behind their products. They make products that are healthy for the skin with lots of added benefits. Zoetic talks about how they take great care in choosing the names, colors, and scents of their products because of the connection between our mind, emotions, and senses. Now that is a small, local business that I can support!

I received the Gravity Bath Salts from a friend! Gravity Bath Salts are made with Indian Sandalwood and Grey Illite Clay. Zoetic claims that these salts help to calm and center the mind and thoughts. If you like the scent of sandalwood, then you will LOVE these bath salt! They smell of straight sandalwood. They add a lovely meditative experience to the bath and I could feel myself noticeably getting calmer and more relaxed. I could easily mix these bath salts with a bath bomb. They were not overpowering, but you could still smell the bath bomb and the bath salts. Word of warning: the bath salts do leave some residue in the bottom of the tub from the clay, but is easily washed away with some water after the bath!

You can check out Zoetic at bezoetic.com . There you will find the story behind the company (I highly recommend giving that a read!) and other products that Zoetic makes! They make some lovely sugar scrubs, shampoo bars (excellent for decreasing use of plastic that could get into our oceans and landfills!), lip scrubs, and facial drops! Let me know if you want me to try anything else out and review it on here! Enjoy!

7pm in Charleston Coconut Milk Salt Scrub

7pm In Charleston Coconut Milk Salt Scrub from Ahhh Sugar Sugar

I am not one that enjoys a salt scrub. They have always been too harsh without adding moisture and oil back into my skin, or not harsh enough yet still without the added moisture. I have always preferred sugar scrubs because I feel as though I can get a deep enough scrub and it moisturizes my skin in the process. If you gave me this product without the label, I would have assumed it was a sugar scrub! It offers a moderate to harsh level of exfoliation (that I prefer in my scrubs) and with the added coconut milk, it leaves a layer of oil on the skin that continues to moisturize even after you get out of the shower.

The scent is something that I believe anyone can get on board with. 7pm in Charleston has scent notes of sweet orange, lemon, macadamia nuts, sandalwood, and rosewood. It is not a strong or overwhelming scent. It is very light, and perfect for the warmer months. I know I will not be able to adequately describe this scent, but here we go! It is a clean scent, with an added layer of woodies depth. You can smell the citrus from the sweet orange and the lemon, but it is toned down and grounded by the sandalwood and rosewood. It has an added layer of sweetness from the coconut milk and coconut oil. It does not lean too far one way and it a very well-rounded fragrance.

This scrub is also just plain good for your skin. Because of the fat content in coconut milk and coconut oil, this scrub is a good moisturizer. Also the Vitamin C and Copper in the coconut milk help prevent saggy skin, wrinkles and age spots. The lemon juice and dead sea salt help to clarify and brighten the skin.

I thoroughly enjoyed this scrub and I will repurchase this product in the future! I think that Ahhh Sugar Sugar does some of the best scrubs and has some of the best scents. If you like a good harsh scrub, that still moisturizes your skin, you should definitely try out Ahhh Sugar Sugars’ scrubs.
