Crescent City Swoon Subscription Box December 2018 Review
Sugar Cookie Unicorn Bath Bomb, 5 oz – Estimated Value $7.95 (buy a similar unicorn bath bomb here)
I think the unicorn bath bombs by Crescent City Swoon are so cute, so I am happy to finally be able to try one! This one is scented like sweet sugar cookies and even has a crown that looks like candy! This is made with virgin coconut oil, so not only will it look pretty but it will also soften your skin.
Be Cheery Bubble Truffles, 4 pack – Estimated Value $9.95 (buy a different pack of four here)
These sweet fruity bubble truffles are designed to add some bubbles while also softening your skin thanks to ingredients like cocoa and shea butter. On its own one truffle didn’t make a lot of bubbles, so I would most likely use this in a bath cocktail when I want to add some skin-softening goodness.
Peppermint Candy Bath Bomb in Green, 4.5 oz – Estimated Value 6.50 (based on other bath bombs found here)
This minty green peppermint candy bath bomb has a sweet peppermint scent and it created a lot of bubbles once the water hit it! This left my skin feeling soft, too.
Peppermint Candy Bath Bomb in Red, 4.5 oz – Estimated Value 6.50 (based on other bath bombs found here)
This is the same bath bomb as the green one, just fashioned to look like the classic red peppermint. Same great minty scent, same bubbles upon contact with water! If I had one wish it would be that this changed my bath water a fun color- this was just a white that made my bath water look a little creamy.
Cupcake Bath Bomb, 5 oz – Estimated Value $7.95 (based on the bath bombs found here)
This cute cupcake had a sweet, sugary scent and turned my bath water a light pink. This was a fizzer that lasted for a while before dissolving quickly, and it made for a fun bath.
The Verdict: Crescent City’s Swoon Subscription Box spoiled us this month with box-exclusive items you can’t buy online, and I loved the fun theme of the items. Though the items are not available for sale online, I would say with the cost of the box plus shipping, you are breaking even on the value. If you appreciate supporting small brands that send high-quality, small-batch bath products than I think you will really enjoy the Crescent City Swoon experience.
