    Fright Night Bath Bomb & Melt – Listed Value $7.75

    This spooky bath bomb has a melting eye made of nourishing cocoa butter to soften skin while the purple bomb base fizzed away happily and turned my bath water a light purple. The scent was a mix of nutty chocolate, sticky caramel, and cinnamon glaze, and it left me smelling like a snack no one except my cat could appreciate.

      I Put a Spell On You Whipped Meringue Body Butter – Listed Value $7.50

      I enjoy the formula on this fluffy lotion, and now that it is finally starting to cool off my dry skin is drinking up all of the lotions that I remember to give it. This is scented with bubblegum, banana runts (the superior runt, by far), cotton candy, and lemon drops. It reminds me of a bowl of Halloween candy just waiting to be shared with trick or treaters!

        Antidote Hand Soap – Listed Value $8

        This glow-in-the-dark hand soap is fun, and the scent of sweet pumpkin, marshmallow, and creamy vanilla latte definitely had me feeling the spooky season vibes. After using this once I actually gave it to my sister who was visiting from Minnesota, as she said she “loves” hand soap and that is a feeling I have never felt towards hand soap.

          Pick Your Poison Bath Frosting – Listed Value $14.50

          How cool is the packaging on this? It makes me want to grab my cat (#singlelife) and watch a horror movie while eating all of the good candies from a Halloween variety mix. The scent is a mix of fizzy cola, blood orange, and vanilla ice cream. For those who aren’t familiar with what this is, think of it as a fluffy whipped soap with a few sugar granules for a very mild exfoliation. These have become my favorite way to lather up! If you’ve been interested in this subscription box but didn’t want to commit to the full box, Ahhh Sugar Sugar just launched a frosting of the month subscription, too!

          The Verdict: The Halloween box from 2018 is one of the best subscription boxes I have received all-time, so I had high expectations for this one. I don’t think it is *as* amazing as last year, but it is still a creatively curated box. The value on this came up a little below the cost of the box plus shipping, but keep in mind these are exclusive products that can only be had through being a monthly subscriber!

          To Wrap Up:

          Can you get this box if you still sign up today? No, but sign up today for the November box!

          Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.99 + $8.32 shipping ($43.31), which means each of the 4 items has an average cost of $10.83.

          I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t go on pizza and when I’m not studying for law school I’m relaxing at home with 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. Jessica,
            Why don’t we ever get spoilers for this box? The company just doesn’t provide them?

          2. I don’t know if I want to use something that glows in the dark on my skin.

          3. I think for the price that Lavish Bath Box is a much better value, and it looks like better curating as well. I’ll be sticking with Lavish.

          4. I really loved this box. The soap smelled so good and it’s glow in the dark. How seriously cool is that? Loved the smell and texture of the body butter, and the bath bomb was, well, the bomb. I love their frostings, but this wasn’t my favorite scent. I also get their frosting of the month and liked the scent much better. It was Donut Be Jelly and was kinda like a grape jelly donut.

            I always love this box for the quality and curation. If you are looking for quantity and a great bargain, it’s not for you. That said, the bath frostings are my favorite bath product ever and I’m a huge lover of bath potions, lotions, bombs, bubbles, and oils.

          5. Terrific review from my fellow Louisiana gal!

          6. I like this box and would use everything in it, but if I’m getting a subscription box where I don’t get to hand select my own items, I expect a better value. It’s priced to high.

            • These are all handmade and are fantastic quality. This box used to be on a mile-long waitlist that I never got off of. Some people waited a year to get a box. Also, if you’d like to hand-select your own items, you certainly can. They have a shop through facebook.

              • Thanks for the heads up Amber! I actually would like to try the brand, I’m just really particular about fragrance, so I do like to choose. Sounds like I need to go check out their site.

                • You’re welcome
