Scrub30 Scrub-A-Dub Review

Sparkling Citrus Shampoo, 2.5 fl oz – Retail Value $5.99

This shampoo is scented with citrus orange, lemongrass, chamomile, star rose, and sage, and in real life that smells like orange ice cream. I am not mad about it— I think that is a fun and unique scent for a shampoo. While this is sulfate and paraben-free and has argan oil in it, this was a bit too strong of a shampoo for my hair type. I think if you don’t have a lions mane of curls, however, this would be a good shampoo for you to use.

Sparkling Citrus Conditioner, 2.5 fl oz

Sparkling Citrus Conditioner, 2.5 fl oz – Retail Value $6.99

This conditioner is sulfate and paraben-free while also being packed with argan oil, wheat protein, and vitamin E. Like the shampoo, this had an orange ice cream scent, and it was hydrating on my hair. I did need to use way more than the recommended quarter-size amount to get through all of my hair, so I don’t see this conditioner lasting more than ten showers. I condition my hair a bit more frequently than that.

Midnight Berry Shower Gel, 2.5 fl oz

Midnight Berry Shower Gel, 2.5 fl oz – Retail Value $4.99

This fun shower gel had an almost metallic sheen to it, and I was digging it. The scent is “Juicy Berry, Sparkling Mandarin, Coconut, Honeysuckle, Vanilla & Apricot Nectar,” and collectively my nose called it a light, fruity scent. It was very soft on my skin and made a creamy lather, so it checked the boxes on what a good body wash needs to do.

Lakeview Breeze Shower Gel, 2.5 fl oz – Retail Value $4.99

This shower gel checked all of the boxes like the Midnight Berry shower gel, only the scent is lavender, star rose, white jasmine, violet, sandalwood, and vanilla. This was my favorite scent of the two shower gels, as the scent was a touch stronger and more complex. The lavender and vanilla mixed with the jasmine and sandalwood made for a really lovely shower experience.

Caddy Orange Scrubber, – Retail Value $4.99

To be honest, I don’t want to even think about when I actually should throw away my scrubbers vs when I actually do. I think it’s like cleaning your makeup brushes— you need to be doing it a lot more than you actually are. Apparently, I am not alone, which is why each subscription from Scrub30 comes with a scrubber. The folds of this scrubber are more densely packed than a cheap one you can get at Wal-Mart, and it lathered with the body wash well.

The Verdict: Scrub30 is a relatively new company (I think they have been open for less than a year), and I think it shows promise. I could tell that all of the products were of good quality, and there is definitely convenience in having your shower goods delivered once a month— one less thing to add to your grocery list and then forget to buy anyway. I am hoping that as they grow they will offer more scents to change up the options because as of now they are quite limited, however, the quality is there. The current scents were lovely, and I enjoy the idea of getting fresh shower products a month without a bunch of bulky packaging (before I started reviewing boxes I had the same massive container of body wash from Costco chilling out in the corner of my shower, and I got tired of it within six weeks of getting it). The products are pricey compared to what you get at the grocery store, however along with the quality of the products themselves you are paying for sustainable packaging that is consciously produced. Plus, I really just like the duck packaging that’s throughout the items. I love ducks.

Value Breakdown: This box has a total value of about $28, which is slightly higher than the $25.16 box cost, but lower than the $33.86 total cost including $8.70 shipping to Louisiana. Each subscription level offers a 10% discount on the products vs buying them individually. Since the products aren’t available in stores, you will be paying for shipping no matter if you buy the products as one-offs or as a subscription.

For $33.86, each of the 5 products cost me $6.77.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. Darn! When I saw the name, I thought maybe it was a sub for scrubs…that would be great!

  2. If the shipping were covered I would definitely purchase 2 of these monthly. But, No, no -shipping is just too much!

    • You should totally check out the sale they have right now!

  3. These products are only 2.5oz? That is very small for the price, especially with how expensive the shipping is. I like that they are trying to be eco-friendly, but including a big plastic mesh poof every month so you throw one away is just environmentally wasteful, you can put them in the dishwasher to clean them.

  4. Great review Jessica! I love anything orange so the Sparkling Citrus is right up my alley. I’m going to keep on eye on this box since I do like trying new products but I’m not quite ready to commit to another month subscription.

    A think your shower poof /scrubber should be changed every three months like a tooth brush. At least that it when I change mine out (when I remember). There should be an app on our phone for that!

  5. This looks like heaven!

  6. These scents sound really alluring, right up my alley

  7. Such cute packaging! I think this is a great way to incorporate new bath products into your everyday routine. I am LIVING for that cute duck logo!

    P.S. – ALL for eco friendly companies! Scrub30 you have MY ATTENTION!

    • Isn’t the Duck logo lovely??? I love it too.

  8. Jessica,
    Great review. This looks really interesting and I think I’ll add it to my watch list.
    Btw your hair is awesome! My hair is so straight it practically hisses at curling irons. Do the shampoo and conditioned come in different formulas? Like moisturizing for curls or colored hair and volume for those with thinner hair? I may not be asking that correctly, lol.

    • Hi Becca! There are only two shampoos currently available on the Scrub30 website, and only 1 conditioner. Their current model seems to be “one size fits all” for hair. I hope to see this change as they grow! However, sulfate-free is really good for curly hair.

      • Thanks for the info. I will definitely still check it out. 🙂
        Have a great night.
