Go Bananas Banana Scented Soap, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $6.95

Banana Laffy Taffy is one of my favorite candies of all time, and I was excited to have a bar of soap that smelled that way- but this is not that soap. Rather than smelling like sugary, artificial banana this smells exactly like a fresh, healthy banana. My sweet-loving soul doesn’t know how to take it, but regardless of the banana confusion, this is a great bar of soap made with an olive oil base along with coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter.

O’Christmas Tree Apple Balsam Pine Scented Soap, 3.5 oz – Estimated Value $6.95

This looks to be a subscriber-exclusive soap scent, and it deliciously smells like a forest with hints of sweet apple. I love woody scents like balsam and pine (when I had the opportunity to make my own bath salts, those were two of the main scent notes I chose!), and the sweet apple balances it out nicely. This is made with the same soap base of oils and butters, and this also comes with a label that can be planted to sprout California wildflowers!

The Verdict: I am still unsure about that healthy banana-scented soap, but for $12.95 a month, including free shipping, I think this is one of the better, more 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 also 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?), and it was nice to get an exclusive scent this month, too.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? No, you will get the January 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!

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. This is a great price for two bars of soap. I am a bit of a handmade soap hoarder. I have nine bars in my bathtub/shower and three bars at my sink… 🙂

  2. I don’t see how this is a viable monthly sub at least for me. It would take me a long time to use those 2 soaps and then what do you do when they keep coming every month.

  3. So it’s a bad thing that the soap smells like real bananas? 😂 I do love me some banana laffy taffy tho

    • Haha, it’s not a bad thing, I just got really excited for banana laffy taffy. My mind played tricks on me!
