Lavish Bath Box February 2018 “Moonstruck” Review
Here is the info sheet that includes the name of the products, the shop that they are from, and any available coupon code. I love having easy access to the shop websites and coupons for future repurchases!
Wood & Wax Co Moondust Bath and Body Nectar in Aurora Borealis, 4 oz – Retail Value $28
I have never seen a body oil as beautiful as this one, and I am here for it. This body nectar is made with a signature blend of apricot, jojoba, and Vitamin E oils, along with hibiscus flowers, rose petals, and diamond silver mica. It is applied with a dropper, which I think is perfect, because you get all of the oil with none of the flowers trying to come out. It left my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth, and there was no greasy feeling left. This is going to last a long time, and that makes me happy— it is one of my favorite subscription box finds, ever.
Karamelz Shop Starstruck Shave Soap, Full Size! – Retail Value $5
I have never tried a hard shave soap (only the foam ones!), so I was excited to try this. It took a little bit before it emolliated, but it left my skin soft and ready to be shaved. I used this with a razor that is ready to be thrown out, but my shave was nick-free! Plus, the size makes it easy to hold in your hand while balancing on one leg trying to moisturize the other without falling over in a shower. Any product that passes the Jessica-is-clumsy challenge is a winner in my book.
Soaring Suds The Zodiac Bubble Bar, 4.5 oz – Estimated Value $6 (linked to a similar product from the same company)
This juicy, fruity bubble bar is another Lavish exclusive. It is scented with blackberry, strawberry, and pomegranate (among others), and it the fruity scent is delicious. I really appreciated how soft this bath bomb was, too. Sometimes my bubble bars are hard to crumble under the running water, but it was easy to break off a chunk of this bar. I used half of the bubble bar and got a great tub of bubbles and water that was a light pink. I am tempted to buy more bubble bars from the company, because this is definitely comparable to my normal Lush bubble bars but for a lower price (they have a birthday cake bubble bar that looks SO fun).
Fo Shizzle My FIzzle Over The Moon Bath Bomb, 4.5 oz – Estimated Value $7
This beautiful bath bomb is another Lavish exclusive, and I am in awe of how beautiful it is. It is hand painted, and it also has a beautiful crescent moon imprint. It has a lovely citrus scent thanks to the orange and grapefruit, and it is also dusted with biodegradable glitter. This is the only product from this box I have not used it— it is so beautiful that I am trying to save it for a special occasion. I estimated the price based on other bath bombs that are the 4.5 oz size, though the value is probably higher when you take into account the hand-painted detail. This is truly an item that makes for a very lavish bath.
Fate & Fortune Apothecary Cosmic Sugar Scrub, 9.5 oz – Estimated Value $13 (value based on a similar product from Fate & Fortune)
Fate & Fortune Apothecary opened on March 3rd, so getting their Cosmic Sugar Scrub in the February box is an awesome sneak peek of the new brand. I love the layers of color, and this black cherry-scented scrub smells exactly like black cherry soda— it was a delicious treat for me. When water meets the scrub that has been rubbed into the skin, the scrub will turn into a moisturizing lotion that leaves your skin smooth and soft. I have never had a body scrub that was so moisturizing, and I love the level of care and detail that went into this scrub. The scrub is a generous 9.5 ounces, and by my research from other quality indie brands, an 8-ounce scrub will sell for between $16-$20.
Dolly Moo Across the Universe Bath Bomb, 7.5 oz – Estimated Value $8
This was a Lavish exclusive, and I was excited to see a large size and gorgeous colors. Unfortunately, during the creation of these custom bath bombs, an ingredient was left out that acts to keep the bath bomb color from sticking to the sides of your tub. Lavish reached out and informed us of the issue promptly, and Dolly Moo will be sending me a new bath bomb to make up for it. I think that is a great resolution for a problem I would not have known about until after I used the product. Luckily, it just so happens that I got this box the day before I was having my apartment cleaned by a professional (gotta impress my mom, who is coming to visit next weekend!). I figured if my tub was already going to be cleaned the next day, there would be no harm in using the bath bomb the night before— and I am glad I did! I loved the jasmine and vanilla scent, and it created an awesome purple bath water. I am excited to see the replacement Dolly Moo sends me, considering this defective product was so great.
Here is a shot of the gorgeous purple this bath bomb made.
The Verdict: WOW! I am so impressed with my first Lavish Bath Box. I feel like it was designed just for me. I love baths, and I take one practically every day (sometimes multiple times a day). Every included product match the Moonstruck theme, and they truly lived up to their lavish namesake! If you love taking baths, this is definitely a box you should consider. I usually get all of my bath bombs and bubble bars from Lush, and I am excited to see a box offering products of comparable quality from smaller brands. I calculated an estimated value of $67 for this box, which I think is fair. This isn’t a subscription where you will get three or four times in retail value what you pay for the box, but you will get thoughtfully curated, high quality products.
