September Box of Sugar: If You’ve Got It, Haunt It

Halloween is an exciting time in the bath and body world! So many new releases and products to keep up with, it is overwhelming! Ahhh Sugar Sugar is doing a Halloween Mystery Box this year, which is VERY exciting! This Halloween themed Box of Sugar is beautiful and sets the tone wonderfully for the rest of October.

Fright Night Bath Bomb and Melt: Chocolate, carmel, and cinnamon, Oh my! I smelled this warm, comforting scent through the wrapper and I cannot wait to see how it performs in the tub! I am not normally a chocolate scented bath person, but this is blended so beautifully, I think it might break that rule!

Antidote Hand Soap: I LOVE Ahhh Sugar Sugar hand soaps! This comes at a perfect time, because I just used up my last bottle from them. This glows in the dark! Ahhh Sugar Sugar has done glow in the dark products before, and they always work so well! This is scented in sweet pumpkin, marshmallow, and creamy vanilla latte. I pick up the pumpkin and latte, and a spicy note that I was not expecting! This is a beautiful scent and I am excited to use this!

I Put A Spell On You Whipped Meringue: This is a hodgepodge of scents! This is scented in bubblegum, banana runts, cotton candy, and lemon drops. This scent is not for me; I do not like banana scents. To my nose, I get the artificial scent of bubblegum and cotton candy with the banana coming through at the end. I bet a lot of people will enjoy this scent!

Pick Your Poison Bath Frosting: This is a beautiful white frosting with a red center! I am really loving that look. This is scented in coca cola, blood orange, and vanilla ice cream. This is a different scent for me. It smells almost like a sweet vanilla coca cola float. It is a very light fragrance with nothing overpowering. I cannot wait to see how this smells warmed in the shower!

Ahhh Sugar Sugar generously supplied a coupon code in each BOS! I mean, how cool is that? Their 2019 Holiday pre-order is going on right now, so use that code and get 10% off of your holiday order! I know I will! What did you think of this month’s BOS? What are you looking for from this year’s holiday collection? Thank you for being here and reading my delightful ramblings.

The Dirty Goat: Practical Magic Seasonal Box

The Dirty Goat has made her first seasonal box! This is a Halloween, Practical Magic themed box that came with five products and a quote from the movie. I personally love the quote and it will be something that I put up in my office. The products that came in this box are beautiful and play into the Practical Magic theme well. All of these products and scents are new to me, which adds to the surprise and magic of the box.

Aunt Jet’s Bella Donna Bath and Body Oil: This oil can be used in the bath to add extra moisture to a long soak, or straight to the skin. This is scented in madagascar vanilla, cedarwood, musk, and lemon. This is a very warm musky scent with the cedarwood and musk leading. The vanilla helps give it a touch of sweetness and the lemon makes sure it does not get too musky. I think this would add such a special touch to a nice warm bath, and I cannot wait to get it in the tub.

All Hallows Eve Car Freshener: I really love this idea of having my favorite scents as car fresheners now. I think it is so great that The Dirty Goat is stepping into those spaces of “household” goods. This is scented in cinnamon buns, icing, and fresh vanilla bean. I love this! I am a big fan of cinnamon, and this is right up my ally. This will be hanging in my car all winter long!

Lavender Gates Room and Linen Spray: I have recently really gotten into room and linen sprays. They are such an easy way to freshen up a space and give it a little special touch! Lavender Gates is scented with lavender, vanilla, musk, and patchouli. This is a warm lavender scent with the lavender being an herbal lavender and not a sweet lavender. The musk adds to the lavender scent and the vanilla helps give some sweetness.

Jimmy Angelou Cologne Balm: I like to use solid fragrances when I am just doing things around the house or getting ready for bed. I use them like touch points to help ground and relax my mind. I could not find the scent notes for this on her website, but this scent smells slightly clean, herbal and not too musky. The balm is very soft, which helps with the ease of applying this. The scent is not very strong though, which is kinda a bummer.

Midnight Margaritas Lip Balm: Guys, I go through chapsticks like nobody’s business. I am stoked to have a huge lip balm to use and abuse, especially with the colder months coming up. This balm is very soft and moisturizing. I also could not find this one on her scent list, but to me, this smells like sweet, gummy lime candies. This scent reminds me of Calacus from LUSH. I enjoy this scent in this format, and it makes me want other scents in lip balm form.

Overall, I think this was a solid first box. It can be tough to create something like a seasonal box from scratch, especially with everyone’s thoughts and opinions on what it should or should not be. I like the scents and products that we received, and I am excited to try some of these new to me products. I cannot wait to break open that car freshener, and the lip balm has already been used! What did you think of this first box? Did you find any new favorites? As always, thank you for reading my delightful ramblings.
