The Bakery Box “Macarons” April 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!
Macaron Hand Soap, 6 count
I genuinely have no idea how to value this because Shea Shea Bakery doesn’t sell any hand soap at all on their website. That being said, these little soap nuggets are cute in their macaron shape and smell deliciously sweet. I will probably pass these along to a friend who will be able to use them appropriately— I don’t even own a soap dish, so these hand soaps would get messy very quickly if they stayed in my apartment.
Blueberry Lemon Body Oil, 4 oz
I love a good body oil, because even though this is for “hair and body” I love to pour some in my baths instead. It makes the water smell lovely (Blueberry + Lemon is such a nice pairing), and it moisturizes my skin well. I can be really lazy and hate the additional step of applying lotion when I am done bathing, so it’s nice that I don’t feel the need to do so thanks to adding this oil to my bath! When applying it directly to your skin, be a bit careful or it can get greasy fast. A little goes a long way and you will smell delicious.
I am a big fan of getting body products with a clay confectionary on the top of the lid. Keep it up, Shea Shea Bakery. At first whiff, this body butter was very perfumy— like a body butter trying to smell like raspberry macarons rather than actually smelling like macarons. I used this to moisturize every bit of skin I could reach, and when I was done I felt regret because it was a bit greasy. However, I shouldered on, and later in the day when I went outside a fresh breeze went by me and I smelled the lotion again, and it smelled amazing. Once it absorbed into my skin it really worked some magic with my body chemistry. I will use this again, only a lot more sparingly.
I think every box should include an actual edible treat considering the bath products look luscious enough to eat. The lovely lemon macaron from Le Macaron was delicious, and I could easily eat six of them in one sitting. Luckily for my wallet, there is no Le Macarons nearby.
Bonus! Smartie roll
The Verdict: I can see why a reader requested a review of this box— it’s pretty great. I loved all of the products and how they fit cohesively with the theme. Last month I said my only complaint was that I wished something edible was included because the bath items are so delectable, and The Bakery Box even delivered on that! My only real complaint this month is that this box feels a bit light— I could only ascertain the estimated value of three of the four, items, and it added up to about $23.33. I can’t imagine the hand soaps, cute as they are, being a high-value item. Ultimately, I feel like this box could use a finishing touch or another macaron. Last months value was about $37, and I feel like this box is about $10 less in value compared to it. What do you think? Am I being too hard on the box?
