Lavish Bath Box is a subscription box that sends you vegan, cruelty-free, and usually handmade bath products each month.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Lavish Bath Box
The Cost: $45.95/month (save with longer subscriptions)
COUPON: Use code ADDICTED to save 15% off your first box!
The Products: 5-7 full sized bath products including soaps, soaks, scrubs, bath salts, bath bombs, bubble bars, and candles.
Good to Know: According to their website, at the time I wrote this review, Lavish Bath Box was still shipping March boxes.
I don’t know what it is about this packaging, but I absolutely love it. It was beautiful, plus everything was well-protected.
Ships to: US
Several cards were included. In addition to a traditional information card listing the items in the box, there were candle care directions and an explanation of how to use a bubble bar. (I appreciated this. Although I like a lot of bath stuff, I had not previously been familiar with bubble bars!)
Starlight Moonlight Bubble Bar from Sylvia Soap Studio (4.5 oz) – Value $6.50
This looks like a cookie to me and I kind of want to eat it. Anyway, you break off a piece and run it under warm water for bubbles (or just toss the whole thing in for a lot of bubbles). This is scented with geranium, cedarwood, and patchouli, which is a combination I really like. I haven’t used this yet (I only have time for long baths on the weekend and I had enough items in this box for at least 10 baths) but I am really looking forward to it.
Northern Lights Bubble Bar by Bare Naked Bath (3 oz) – Value $2.80
This exact item wasn’t in the Bare Naked Bath shop but this was the price of all the other bubble bars. I love the colors! This product does contain sodium lauryl sulfate but that is one of the primary ingredients behind the generation of the bubbles. (You can have bubble bars custom made without SLS but they will not bubble as much.)
Moonlight Bath Bag by House of Intuition (3 oz) – Value $8
This is enough for three baths (and it includes three single-use sachets). It has Himalayan pink salt and epsom salts, plus jasmine, raspberry leaf, and lavender. You can either fill a sachet and throw it in the bath or make a tea with one of the sachets and pour the tea into your bath. I opted for throwing the whole sachet in and I had a very relaxing experience. The epsom salts were especially nice at soothing my muscle aches after a workout!
Miss Galaxy Bath Bomb by Sassy Fras Bath (7 oz) – Value $6
This is seriously the biggest bath bomb I have ever seen. It makes for a really colorful experience although cleanup afterwards is a bit of a chore since there is glitter and a ring of pigment around the tub.
Note: According to Lavish, this product’s formulation was changed between their testing and the wholesale order. So this mess was not intended. Here is their statement on the matter; in brief, subscribers will be receiving replacement bath bombs with the same weight and water-soluble colorants at no cost.
Cosmic Galaxy Bath Bomb by The Ticklish Giraffe (4 oz) – Value $4.75
The scents here are an interesting combination of fruits, flowers, oakmoss, and wood. I like the blend a lot (the flowers work well in the mix). This also contains hemp seed oil, which I thought was very moisturizing.
Lemon “Galax-Tea” Sugar Soap Scrub by Soap & Clay (2.5 oz) – Value $4.95
This appears to be special packaging for one of Soap & Clay’s regular items. It’s a whipped soap and sugar scrub in one. I love scrubs and this one is really fresh and clean smelling.
Blue Moon 100% Soy Candle by Soy Much Brighter (2 oz) – Value $5
This is made from soy wax and has a cotton wick and a recycled paper label. Larger candles in the Soy Much Brighter shop are poured into recycled glass. This scent is oakmoss (there’s oakmoss again) and amber and is listed as being for men or being more masculine, but I have to say I like it quite a bit.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $38 for the March Lavish Bath Box. That is somewhat shy of the $45.95 subscription cost, but of course you can bring that down with a coupon and longer-term subscription. Plus, if you were going to buy items individually from a lot of these Etsy sellers, you’d pay way more than the difference in shipping (it costs $6.80 for Bare Naked Bath to mail a package, just as an example). So this is an opportunity to try out items from a lot of different small, independent producers without all those extra shipping costs. Also, for what it’s worth, I thought the theme was pretty great and all the items fit it quite well.
What did you think of the March Lavish Bath Box? Do you get any soap, spa, or bath subscriptions?
