The Bakery Box March 2018 Review
The info sheet for this box didn’t include info on the products, but it did let me know how to find them on social media!
Strawberry Frosted Donut Body Butter, 2 oz – Retail Value $11
This was the first product to catch my eye in the box because, hello, there’s an actual donut (with sprinkles!) on the lid of this body butter. And boy, when they say butter they really mean it. This stuff is THICK and when you start to apply it, it just melts into your skin. The scent is a sweet strawberry that isn’t overpowering. I remember getting confectionary scented lotions when I was a kid that were sickeningly sweet in smell, and this is much milder in comparison. This is an adult strawberry frosted donut scent if you will.
Strawberry Soufflé Body Wash, 8 oz – Estimated Value $8 (based on other body wash that can be found here)
Strawberry Souffle is the exclusive scent for this box, which means that this body wash and body mist won’t be made available for purchase on the Shea Shea Bakery website. The strawberry scent is light and airy (probably mellowed out by the whipped cream scent), and the brown sugar scent really shines through. Smelling this makes me want to bite into an actual strawberry dessert. This didn’t dry out my skin and got my skin clean, so it’s a good body wash with a heavenly smell.
Update: After I used this body wash, I noticed crystals formed on the top of the lid. We reached out to Shea Shea Bakery, and they said this was normal and due to suction in the cap pulling formula out. I rinsed off the lid per their instructions, and the problem has disappeared!
Strawberry Soufflé Body Mist, 8 oz – Estimated Value $15 (based on other body mist found here)
This spray is a light mist that floats onto the skin and leaves just a hint of that delicious brown sugar-strawberry scent. This is the kind of spray I would want to apply after a hot shower before pulling on a pair of crisp pajamas and watching a good movie. I am amazed that Shea Shea Bakery has made such a fun and sweet scent that does not smell like I grabbed a perfume from the kid’s aisle at the store.
Pink Lemonade Soap, 4 oz – Retail Value $3
Rounding out our collection of pink body treats is this pink lemonade soap. I love pink lemonade to drink, and I love citrus in my body products, so this bar of soap is perfect for me. The hefty 4 oz size means this baby is going to last a while, and it is thick and sturdy in my hand as I use it.
The Verdict: I can see why a reader requested a review of this box— it’s awesome! I love that unique scents are made each month for this box, similar to the way Fortune Cookie Soap offers their monthly boxes. I appreciate the attention to detail that is evident in these products (hello! Sprinkles on a donut on a body butter!), and the skincare products themselves are high-quality goods. I am excited to see what April has to offer. My only complaint is I wish The Bakery Box included an actual baked good because all these delicious scents have me craving a pastry!
