SudzBox Card

Each box comes with a card pasted into the box lid which details the month’s products and directions for how to use them.

Items Wrapped

The items were individually wrapped with tissue paper and it felt like unwrapping a special gift.

Soap Block

This wooden soap block is meant to help keep your handmade soaps from melting too early. The slits between the wood let the water drip away from the soap so it remains dry.

Pepps Soaps

Sudzy Peeps

These molded soaps look just like marshmallow Peeps! I think they are so adorable and are perfect for a spring box. My two year old daughter wanted to eat them so I just need to be careful with her around them. They smell lemony and can be used for hands or body.

Bath Bombs

Bath Bombs – $3.99 each

This box contained three different bath bombs. Not only will they make the bath smell wonderful but they also fizz and color the water which my kids both found so exciting! The scents they included this month were great. Check out these names: Orange Creamsicle, Strawberry Fields and…Monkey Farts! My five year old son was in hysterics when I read that to him! All of them smelled divine to me – even the monkey farts!

Bath Paint

Shower Paint

This was such a blast for both of my kids. They loved using the brightly coloreds soap based paints in the bathtub. I love that they didn’t stain and washed right off. I was happy they included two paintbrushes as well so there was no fighting over them! Each jar of paint has its own screw top lid to save any leftovers. These can be used in the shower too.

Polar Soap

The Big Chill Soap

This glycerin and shea soap has a half buried polar bear inside. It was fun to use this in the bath and the kids are anxious to see how long it will take to get him free. This soap has essential oils (it didn’t specify which ones) and I can’t place the scent, but it was very pleasant.

Verdict:  ​I really enjoyed the first ever Sudz and Scrubz Kids Box! My children both love taking baths and any new toys or products that make it even more exiting is a win in my book. I think this would be a fun way to entice kids who don’t love to bathe into the water. The bath bombs, fun soaps and paints all put such a positive spin on that often dreaded bath time routine. The value is there for me also, this box was chock full of goodies! These products are handmade in small batches so most of them aren’t available for purchase on their site right now. As a Jersey girl myself, I love that they are based in New Jersey too! The only thing I think they could improve upon is to include a list of all ingredients on each product or on the information card. There is a small note that some products contain almond oil, but other than that there isn’t much information about what these items contain. My children don’t have any allergies, but many of my friend’s kids do and I’m sure they’d be wary of putting things on their kids unless they knew all the ingredients beforehand. Hopefully that is something SudzBox can work on for the future.

What do you think of SudzBox? Do you think your children would have more fun bathing with these fun products?

  1. This box looks so fun! I’m so glad to see a review of it in addition to the review of the shower box (which also looked really good). I’m trying to weigh subscribing versus saving money… Wantables Intimates may have to go so I can make room in my sub budget for one of these.

  2. I love the Polar Bear and hope he can find a place to rest on a bubble ice burg. This looks like a fun box- I just love the curation- but I definitely have to know the ingredients.

  3. What a great box! My son is too old for this now, but he would have loved everything when he was little. And I would have loved that most of it is consumable. I HATE all the crappy little plastic junk toys that children accumulate (I’m looking at you McDonald’s). They play with them for 5 minutes when they first get them then never touch them again, but refuse to donate them. This would have been a welcome monthly treat that wouldn’t add to the pile of stuff.

  4. I would buy this box except…My kids have sensitive skin. I am conscientious of what I buy product wise as to the ingredients and am careful. Also would be a little worried if the dyes would stain the kids skin? I remember some bath products in a different sub box did (per the review). Once they clear up whats in it and if it is natural – honest ingredients, I would buy this box.

    • It is unlikely that any of the super brightly-colored things are naturally colored. I would’ve loved this box when I was a kid, and then I would have had a terrible rash afterwards. (Things seem to have mellowed out in that regard as an adult, thankfully.)
