The Bakery Box “Peach Iced Tea” May 2018 Review
Peach Iced Tea Bar Soap, 4 oz – Estimated Value $3
This soap is really cute! It has clear soap cubes attached to it that resemble ice cubes that you would get in your peach iced tea! I love the smell of peach, however the peach scent in this soap was a little artificial smelling for my taste. This soap did a standard job of cleaning my skin and lathering up without being drying. This soap was made just for this box, but other Shea Shea Bakery soaps retail $3 here, which is where my estimated value comes from.
Peach Iced Tea Body Mist, 8 oz – Estimated Value $15
This is another item that is a box exclusive, but other 8 oz body mists retail for $15. This body mist had a strong artificial smell to my nose, so I won’t be reaching for it. Personal preference aside, I am happy that the box included such a large size of one of their products.
Peach Cobbler Body Butter, 2 oz – Retail Value $6
This body butter is thick and luxurious, and a little bit goes a long way. I wasn’t a fan of the scent at first, but once it sank into my skin, it transformed! You can really smell the cinnamon undertones with the light peach scent, and this didn’t leave me greasy. This didn’t have a size listed, but I am 98% positive it is the 2 oz size they sell online.
Peach Oatmeal Body Scrub, 4 oz – Estimated Value $10
This is another box-exclusive scent, and I wish it wasn’t. This smells just like a fresh baked oatmeal cookie with hints of peach, and it really smells good enough to eat. This provided a great exfoliation while being gentle and hydrating. This was the clear winner of the box for me. While you can’t get the peach oatmeal scent, I have a feeling their cookie dough body scrub would be just as scrumptious smelling, and that is what I based the value on.
Pie Crumbs Fizzy Bath Solution, 8 oz – Estimated Value $4?
I couldn’t find this bath solution anywhere online, so I based the value off of the Shea Shea Bakery Bath Sprinkles. It was hard to put a name to what these actually smell like. There was a light and delicate generic baked goods scent, but I don’t know if that smell is what pie crumbs really smell like (I am not a big pie person). That being said, the blend of salts made for a relaxing bath time experience, which is something I am all about.
The Verdict: I mentioned in last month’s review that the value felt a little light, and I definitely think this month Shea Shea Bakery stepped it up a notch. My favorite item was the peach oatmeal body scrub, and I really enjoyed the pie crumb bath salts too! Even though some of the scents were misses for me, I can still appreciate this box as a whole. I calculated a value of $38, which I think is fair for the cost of the box.
