Ahhh Sugar Sugar “Leaf Me Alone” October 2018 Review
This box comes with company information listed on the box (and I am digging the unicorn). It also comes with an info sheet for the included products. Prices aren’t listed on the info sheet, so I use the Facebook price list when applicable.
It also comes with an info sheet for the included products. The info sheet got a small makeover, and my eyes appreciate the bigger font! Also, how cute is the original artwork featured in the info sheet and throughout the box?
Rake It Up Bath Frosting, 8 oz – Estimated Value $14
I love receiving full-size bath frostings in this box—something about the packaging and size makes it feel like a luxurious treat. This bath frosting has a scent list of simmering peaches, orange sponge cake, blood orange, spiced buttermilk, and cinnamon apple. To me, the dominant scent is a spicy cinnamon apple, but its softened by the back notes of fruit. This really is an amazing fall scent! Formula-wise, this is a moisturizing whipped soap with a few mild exfoliating particles thrown in for good measure. If you haven’t tried the brand before, I recommend picking up a bath frosting in their next pre-order!
Autumn’s Fairy Dust Spritzer, 4 oz – Estimated Value $11
The beauty of spritzers from Ahhh Sugar Sugar is that they can be used however you want them. Room spray? Check. Fabric spray? Check. Body spray? Check. Autumn’s Fairy Dust has notes of tart apple, jasmine, sandalwood, velvet rose, golden honey, and cinnamon. At first whiff, I smell the apple and honey first and then comes the cinnamon and sandalwood. It is an intoxicating fragrance, and I would most likely use this spritzer as a body spray. Also, check out those adorable fairies!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Lip Scrub, 1 oz
Yay to new products! I am not sure if this is the first time they have ever made a lip scrub, but it’s the first time appearing in a monthly box! This lip scrub is super delicious and tastes pretty dang close to pumpkin cheesecake. This is supposed to be both exfoliating and moisturizing, but this is too dry of a scrub to be moisturizing on my lips. This scrub paired with my Laneige lip mask, however, is a stellar combination that has helped me through some strongly chapped lips.
Zucchini Bread Streusel Frozen Custard Body Butter, 2 oz – Estimated Value $6.75
I tried the shimmery version of the frozen custard body butter once before, back in May, and I wasn’t impressed with it—it left me feeling greasy and was just too heavy. Now that it is the end of October, however, bring on the heavier body butters! This sank into my skin pretty quickly, and within about 30 seconds there was no greasy feeling- just soft, smooth skin. It’s crazy, but this really smells like fresh-baked bread! The scent notes are warm zucchini bread, gooey caramel, and cinnamon streusel. Warm baked bread is the dominant scent to me, and then when I think about it I get the lovely notes of cinnamon. This is a real treat, for both my nose and my skin.
Falling Leaves Solid Bubble Bath – Estimated Value $6.75
The airbrushed colors on this lovely leaf took the Ahhh Sugar Sugar team a full three days to finish, and I think the end result is quite pretty. This bubble bar has scent notes of brisk air and freshly fallen leaves, and the end scent is light and refreshing. Since this bubble bar is on the thin side I would probably crumble the entire thing under running water to make sure I had enough bubbles (I usually try to cut my bubble bars in half). This is a nice counterpunch to some of the warmer, spicy scents in the box this month.
The Verdict: This was another knockout box from Ahhh Sugar Sugar! I really did feel like I was opening up a box of fall treats, and all of the scents fit the theme perfectly. I thought the curation of scents, products included, and the sizes were a good combination, and while I couldn’t find a value for everything I definitely think I got more than my money’s worth this month! It is hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to it would be a tie between the Rake it Up body frosting and Pumpkin Cheesecake lip scrub.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.99 + $8.32 shipping, which means that each of the 5 items cost approximately $8.66.
