Witch Baby Soap Spell Box Review – Winter 2017
Witch Baby is a soap company that has been providing luxurious, handmade bath products made from the finest witchy ingredients since 2013. In the last year or so they started offering a quarterly subscription box that offers seasonal subscription boxes that include exclusive, lunar-themed bath bombs, oils, crystals, enamel pins, soaps, and other products.
The folks at Witch Baby pride themselves on never using parabens, sulfates, phthalates, urea, or formaldehyde in any of their products. Everything they sell is vegan, cruelty-free, and nearly 100% of their packaging is biodegradable.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Witch Baby Spell Box Winter 2017 Review
Witch Baby includes a pamphlet with info about each new moon, the bath bombs that coordinate with them, and what each bath bomb symbolizes. I love this company’s thoughtful attention to detail and their themes in each of their products.
Here is a close up of the text with information on the products included in this Winter box. Candy Quartz Scrub and Fair Milk Shimmer Oil are two new products that will be coming out in January, so if you got the winter box you got an exclusive look at these amazing items. Also, I absolutely love that Witch Baby donated $4,000 to various charities in 2071! What is not to love about that?
Here on these pages are details about the winter celestial schedule and information on the first bath bomb to be used.
Information for the January and Blue moon bath bombs are on these pages.
Details about the new moon bath bomb and a guide on the different color candles included, what they symbolize, and how to anoint them.
Here we have Witch Baby’s winter bucket list. I appreciate this list, but am most intrigued by lavender hot cocoa!
A nice sentiment to keep in mind this holiday season.
Candy Quartz Body Scrub, 2oz – Retail Value $8-9?
As mentioned previously this scrub isn’t coming out until January, so I am excited to have such a special item to try out! This isn’t my first Witch Baby scrub, I actually have two in my bathroom: Snow and Roses and The Bunny Man. This scrub is fluffy like Snow and Roses, but has a very different scent! It smells like a floral cotton candy with hints of vanilla, but not in a nauseating overly sugary artificial way. I also love the iridescent pink violet glitter in this scrub. It leaves a slight shimmer on your skin. Your skin will be smooth and glowing after you use this decadent scrub!
Bundle of 10 Candles
To add further ambiance to your bath time experience, Witch Baby included a bundle of candles. Each color represents different objectives in spell work. I feel like the odd gal out because I am not a big candle fiend, but I do appreciate these since they tie in immensely well with Witch Baby’s mission and themes.
New Moon Bath Bomb — Retail Value $5-10? (Bath bombs range from $5-$10 on site)
This bath bomb is meant to symbolize renewal with the floral citrus fragrance. When I smell anything citrus I think fresh and new, so this is absolutely perfect. My bathtub has sadly been under construction, so I have not been able to enjoy this bomb yet. I can speak from using past bath bombs by Witch Baby on how luxurious they are. I can’t wait to dip in and soak this one in!
December Moon Bath Bomb — Retail Value $5-10? (Bath bombs range from $5-$10 on site)
The scent of this bath bomb is fruity, yet spicy with other notes I couldn’t determine. Upon reading the pamphlet I realized how layered and complex this fragrance profile truly was. Orange, apple, clove, maple, pecan, and sugar plum were combined for this fantastic concoction. The maple really comes through strongly, but not in a pancake breakfast sort of way.
January Moon Bath Bomb — Retail Value $5-10? (Bath bombs range from $5-$10 on site)
Witch Baby has had various scents that feature pine in their fragrance profile, like Wolf Moon for example. Wolf Moon combines the scent of crisp apples with woodsy pine. This bath bomb combines the wintery smell of pine with warm vanilla. This combo makes for an incredibly comforting and familiar scent.
Blue Moon Bath Bomb — Retail Value $5-10? (Bath bombs range from $5-$10 on site)
This bath bomb has such a revitalizing perfume. The mint is front and center; I felt rejuvenated simply sniffing this bath bomb. When you marry the mint with the frankincense, rosemary, and sage featured in this bomb, you are getting a true ball of energy!
Fairy Milk Body Oil
I’m incredibly excited to get a first peek at Fairy Milk body oil. I’m also pleased it will be available on the site next month because I sense I will want to stock up on this fragrance! This may be my favorite item in the box, but that may change once I get the opportunity to use my bath bombs! I typically am drawn to spicier vanilla and amber perfumes like Dior’s Hypnotic Poison and Besame’s 1940, so this oil is a departure for me. I adore the floral berry scent and have been wearing it almost every day since this box arrived. Not only does the oil smell amazing, but it leaves a slight shimmer where you apply it.
Witch Baby Coven Enamel Pin — Retail Price $13 (similar pins are $13 each)
Finally, this neat enamel pin was included. This box’s pin design perfectly goes with the theme of the winter box. The pin is a nice size, slightly larger than a quarter. You won’t have to worry about the pin shifting or moving with the two secure rubber backs. Allow the rest of the Witch Baby coven that you are one of them by wearing this pin!
Verdict: Before getting the Winter Spell box I was a huge Witch Baby fan, but I am an even bigger one now! When I initially opened this box I was floored by how many items were included! The four bath bombs alone would cost close to $30. This box is such an incredible value! I am a big fan of LUSH products, but Witch Baby is right up there with them in terms of quality and uniqueness in their scents, themes, and packaging. I also really appreciate that Witch Baby donates proceeds to charities and groups like Planned Parenthood, RAINN, True Colors Foundation and Greater Houston Community Foundation (for hurricane relief). Knowing that Witch Baby’s dedication to releasing quality products with fantastic price points and their honorable ethics make me proud to endorse them!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box is $40 plus shipping for one-time purchase or $36 plus shipping if you subscribe to it quarterly. All of the items featured are exclusives to the subscription box and are not available for purchase (Candy Quartz Scrub and Fairy Milk body oil will be on the site in January). The bath bombs range in price, but due to shape and size to similar ones I saw on the site I determined each bath bomb would more than likely retail at $6.50 each which totals $26 for all four. The pins featured on the Witch Baby site are $13 a piece, the .5oz oils are $5, most of the scrubs are $5, and the candles aren’t available on the site at all. This totals to $49 before shipping which is roughly a $13 savings. That is like getting two bath bombs or the pin for free!
