The Bakery Box October 2018 Review
Anti-Bacterial Refining Toner, 4 oz
I haven’t had the chance to try skincare from Shea Shea Bakery before, so I was excited to try out the toner and cleanser sent this month. This toner is made with aloe, apple cider vinegar, and witch hazel, and it is designed to kill acne-causing bacteria and calm inflammation. I found this to be very gentle and it fits seamlessly into my morning skincare routine.
Shea Shea Bakery even sent some cotton rounds for us to use with the toner. I thought that was very thoughtful and extremely useful!
Clarifying Face Cleanser, 4 oz – Estimated Value $15 (based on a similar cleanser found here)
This cleanser is made with apple cider vinegar and rose water, and like the toner I found it to be gentle on my skin. Usually “clarifying” skincare products leave my face feeling clean but very tight, but I didn’t have that issue with this one. I still feel like my face was cleansed, but it wasn’t screaming for moisturizer (I applied it anyway). One thing to note is that this cleanser is very thin in its consistency- it reminded me of water!
Caramelized Apple Body Wash, 4 oz – Estimated Value $5 (based on similar sized body wash found here)
This body wash lathered up nicely when I scrunched up my loofah, but the scent didn’t really remind me of caramelized apple—to me, it smelled powdery.
Apple Strudel Body Butter, 2 oz – Estimated Value $6 (based on similar sized body butter found here)
Unlike the body wash, the notes of apple and nutmeg come through well with this apple strudel body butter. The butter is a bit heavy, and it takes a minute to sink into your skin fully. The whipped consistency reminds me of frosting taken out of a can—yum. The formula was too rich for my summer skin, but now that the weather is cooling off once this body butter sinks in there is no greasy feeling.
The Verdict: I thought it was fun for The Bakery Box to send an apple-themed box while also sending two new skincare products! There is currently no toner available for purchase on the website, so I couldn’t find a comparable value for it. That being said, the value of the cleanser, body wash, and body butter adds up to $26, which is more than the cost of the box plus shipping. I am sure the toner bumps that value up another ten or so dollars, and ultimately I am happy with what I received this month.
