The Soap Shack’s The Soap Club “Surprise Me” October 2018 Review

Pumpkin Pie Soap Bar, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $6.50

This soap is only made during the fall, but it smells so good I wish they stocked it year round! This has a true pumpkin spice scent- it is spicy and warming without being overly sweet. It is made with real pumpkin puree and fresh local goats milk, and the end result is a soap with a creamy lather that cleans my skin well.

Spiced Cranberry Soap Bar, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $6.50

Pumpkin spice is everywhere this time of year, but this is the first spiced cranberry scented product I have received! It smells great- why aren’t more companies making this lovely scent? The fresh cranberry comes through with a back note of cinnamon, and it reminds me of the sangria I like to make for Thanksgiving! Another thing I love about The Soap Shack soaps is that the bars come wrapped in a biodegradable label that has flower seeds embedded in it. I think that is a lovely finishing touch.

The Verdict: For $12.95 a month, including free shipping, I think this is one of the better affordable bath and body subscription boxes out there! The fact that The Soap Shack only uses food-grade quality oils and butter is evident when using the soap. I thought being surprised by the scent choices was a rather inexpensive delight (how many times are we actually surprised by items in a subscription box these days considering our need for spoilers?). I loved the spicy and warm fragrances of my soaps this month, and I look forward to seeing what surprise is in store next!

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? No, you will get the November box.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $12.95 and I received two bars of soap. The perk of subscribing vs buying the soaps outright is that shipping is included in the subscription box price, so you are saving a few dollars while still getting high-quality soap!

  1. I have received their Spoil me box which is wonderful, but prefer to get this one (3 mon is my fave deal). I don’t get overloaded with soap as I seem to use up the two bars by the time the next month ‘s shipment arrives. Am only taking a break because of the holidays and all the bath stuff that is gifted to me. And yes, they are great about one skipping a month or so! Great soaps and great customer service!

  2. Lovely sub but I would eventually end up with way to much soap.

  3. Thank you, I have been watching your reviews on this for awhile and checked out their website. I shop at Wish and pay twice the amount. I’m signing up now just hope I can skip a month here and there. I live alone and not sure I can use that much soap but then again with all the extra make up from subs I gift my co-workers with, they might welcome soap 🙂
