Ahhh Sugar Sugar “Thirty AF” May 2019 Review
This box comes with company information listed on the box (and I am always happy to see that unicorn).
It also comes with an info sheet for the included products and an ingredients list, which I always appreciate for skincare. Also, how cute is the original artwork featured in the info sheet and throughout the box?
This month’s theme was inspired by the birthday of Ahhh Sugar Sugar founder Haley.
Clarify This Invigorating Scalp Shampoo & Scrub
I can appreciate the occasional use of a scalp scrub, but this one wasn’t my favorite. The scent was lovely with notes of fresh blackberries, vanilla cupcakes, and lemon zest, but the consistency was a little thin for my preference, and chunks of salt were at the very bottom of the container rather than distributed evenly. It wasn’t too drying for my hair, which is a plus, but the texture is what makes this a miss for me.
Rose Quartz Geode Bath Bomb
This bath bomb is made with sea salt to help with sore muscles (yes, please), and the scent is white gardenia, driftwood, pink peony, and cotton musk. This wasn’t the most exciting bath bomb I have used, but it was still a relaxing addition to my me time.
Cake in a Jar Body Soap and Scrub
Can we talk about this absolutely lovely packaging- it really looks good enough to eat. This scent is a fantastic blend of Fruit Loops, birthday cake, and clary sage, and I like that this is layers of soap and scrub that can be used separately or mixed together depending on what you’re going for.
Wake Your Face Up Energizing Facial Moisturizer
I am pretty sure this is the first moisturizer Ahhh Sugar Sugar has made- nice! This is a hydrating blend of shea butter, sweet almond oil, mango seed butter, caffeine extract, and aloe vera, and it has a slight lemon scent from the lemon essential oil. If you have oily skin this probably a bit heavy for a day moisturizer, but I am a fan of massaging this in after a mid-day sheet mask break. I really like the sanitary pump dispenser too- I wish more moisturizers came packaged like this.
Cake Face Mask
This is neat- it is essentially everything you need for a DIY mask! The dry part is a blend of kaolin and french green clay, and the wet part is aloe vera gel. I would recommend using this as a spot treatment for acne or as a targeted treatment for oilier areas like your T-zone rather than all over your face, but I appreciate the simple ingredients and that this is fragrance-free.
The Verdict: I always look forward to this box because of the creativity and originality, and this month didn’t disappoint. This wasn’t my favorite box of all time, but I still feel like I received a fun mix of unique and creative products. There were no values listed so the value breakdown is $8.66 an item, which I think is fair. I would also like to point out that while I am a bit late with this review, this box shipped late due to personal circumstances.
