The Bakery Box “Bakery’s Best” June 2018 Review
Honeycomb Soap, 1 oz – Estimated Value $0.80 (buy a 5 oz. bar for $4)
This mini slice of honeycomb soap is absolutely precious, and I really liked the light honey scent combined with the moisture this soap provides while it cleans.
Strawberry Shortcake Body Butter, 2 oz – Retail Value $6
I am no stranger to body butters from Shea Shea Bakery, and if you are not careful you will be too greasy real quick. I really love their body butters on my elbows and knees, where my skin will get dry and soak up all the moisture I give it. This strawberry scent was decent, if not a tiny bit artificial to my nose. (To be fair, my nose is really strong. I have tortillas mailed to me from Arizona because I can’t handle the smell of preservatives in store-bought flour tortillas).
Sugar Cookie Body Scrub, 2 oz – Retail Value $6
Oh my gosh this smells so good! This smells like a cross between a fresh baked sugar cookie and cake batter, and I immediately felt the need to go to Cold Stone after smelling this. Not only does it smell great, but it has gorgeous rainbow sprinkles throughout and comes with a mini SUGAR COOKIE SOAP. Shea Shea Bakery creates some of the cutest bath products out there, there is no doubt. Oh, and it was a great scrub. It was a bit dry but once I started rubbing it into my skin I was getting an exfoliation without being rubbed raw.
Midnight Snack Hair Oil, 2 oz – Retail Value $5
I am not positive what the scent description is for Midnight Snack, but the main note is definitely coffee. I don’t reach for coffee at midnight, but I definitely do in the mornings. I enjoyed using this for some extra moisture and shine in my curls when doing my hair in the morning.
Island Getaway Body Lotion, 2 oz – Estimated $2.50 (buy a 5 oz. bottle for $5)
I love island-themed and tropical scents, so this lotion is right up my alley! This is a lighter formula compared to the body butter, so I don’t have to worry about my skin getting greasy while I use it.
Cotton Candy Body Mist, 2 oz – Estimated Value $5
Cotton Candy is my jam, and while I don’t feel like it is the most work-appropriate scent it is definitely a weekend and vacation scent that I am all about. This smells just like the childhood favorite, and I will be reaching for this before I go to the pool!
Pineapple Melon Hand Sanitizer, 2 oz
I can’t find hand sanitizer anywhere on the Shea Shea Bakery website, so I have no idea how to value this. I do like the pineapple-melon scent, as it gives me tropical vibes. I wouldn’t necessarily want my hands to smell like pineapple-melon right before I eat, but this is great for when you feel like you’ve touched something extra germ-y and can’t go wash your hands.
The Verdict: This month’s theme was Bakery’s Best, and I thought it was a real treat to get to try scents and products that have been best sellers for the company, while still getting that exclusivity you expect from the monthly box (for example, you can get the midnight snack scent in other products but not in the hair oil). Not including the hand sanitizer, I calculated a value of $25.30, which is just over the cost of the box plus shipping.
To Wrap Up:
Can you get this box if you sign up today? If you sign up today your first box will be the July box.
Value Breakdown: This box cost $24.55 and I calculated a value of $25.30 (not including the hand sanitizer). That means you are paying approximately $3.50 per item!
