The Bakery Box August 2018 Review
Ice Cream Sundae Decorative Body Butter, 2 oz – Retail Value $11
This body butter definitely smells sweet like ice cream! The body butter itself has a tendency to be greasy on my skin, so I recommend only using a tiny bit at a time or saving this for winter when your skin needs the extra moisture.
Chocolate Marshmallow Bath Whip, 2 oz – Estimated Value $6
This silky bath whip is a cross between soap and body wash, and the creamy whipped texture makes it extra moisturizing. This would also work great as a shaving cream. Chocolate is the predominant scent, I don’t really smell any marshmallow.
Chocolate Almond Body Mist, 2 oz – Estimated Value $5
This body mist smells heavy on the chocolate, not so much on the almond. The chocolate scent itself has a bit of an artificial smell to it that I do not really enjoy, but if you love chocolate scents you’ll probably feel differently.
Caramel Apple Roller Fragrance, 0.33 oz
This fragrance is made with jojoba and coconut oil and I found the scent to be light and pleasant. The apple scent adds a nice freshness to the sweet caramel scent, and it’s not overbearing.
Mini Cupcake Soaps, 6 ct
These mini soaps are cute, but I don’t really understand the purpose of them. Maybe I am not fancy enough. They have a sweet scent, but all I can really picture is how these would look drying on a soap dish. These would probably be really fun for younger kids who need more incentives to wash their hands, however!
Sweet Minis Chocolates & Strawberries, 5 ct
These wax melts are a new product offering from Shea Shea Bakery, and I think the wax shapes are really cute- the chocolates look like they were plucked right from a real box of chocolate! I found the chocolate scent to have that same artificial scent as the body mist, but the strawberry scent was yummy.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
I was excited when The Bakery Box included macaroons in the macaroon box, but I don’t feel the same way about the pretzels. Part of that reason is because of how long these were potentially sitting in the box. I got a shipping email that the label was created on August 21, but the package didn’t start moving until a full week later on August 28 before it was delivered the 29th. It concerns me that these pretzels were potentially just sitting in my box for over a week, and there isn’t a lot of information on who made these pretzels and where. I think going forward if food is going to be included in the boxes they should be from licensed food retailers like the macaroons were.
The Verdict: Overall, I liked that this The Bakery Box included some new product offerings and a wide array of products. I don’t think they have ever included a perfume roller before, and the bath whip was a new product to me too. The chocolate-based scents weren’t really for me, but I have a friend who will be happy to give these bath products homes! For the price and the creativity, I think Shea Shea Bakery continues to be a good value bath and body box!
