AU Sugar Sugar Subscription Box Review – March 2020

AU Sugar Sugar is a bath and body product company that also offers a subscription box! Each month you can expect 3-4 small-batch, handcrafted items, many of which are new to the brand or exclusive to the box. 

FYI: The brand recently changed its name from Ahhh Sugar Sugar to AU Sugar Sugar. Moving forward, they’ll be focusing on hiring those who are on the autism spectrum and have updated their name to reflect this initiative.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Au Sugar Sugar “I Get Floppy When I’m Hoppy” March 2020 Review

This box comes with a sheet that gives you more details about the brand. Also, after some shipping delays with the monthly boxes, AU Sugar Sugar is back on track. This arrived in the beginning of April, which is standard for their normal shipping schedule (they ship on the last Friday of the month). 

It also comes with an info sheet for the included products. As mentioned earlier in this review, the brand recently changed its name from Ahhh Sugar Sugar to AU Sugar Sugar. Moving forward, they’ll be focusing on hiring those who are on the autism spectrum, and they wanted their name to reflect it. You can see some of that emphasis in this month’s products. Let’s take a look. 

 

Springtime in Georgia Bath Frosting – Listed Value $14.50

I view the bath frostings to be the signature product from AU Sugar Sugar– they definitely are my favorite ones! Imagine a soft whipped soap that is infused with a few exfoliating sugar granules, and you have a bath frosting. This scent is one of my favorite bath frosting scents that I’ve received from this subscription, too, with notes of honeysuckle, sweet jasmine, fresh mint, and honey. It really does smell like spring!

 

Inclusion Infusion Bath Melt – Listed Value $8

My bath melt got a little messy in transit to the warm weather of south Louisiana, but other than not looking perfect it was completely fine. I broke it in half and enjoyed the skin-softening oils and butters on two separate occasions, and my skin was appreciative. This is one of my all-time favorite scents from the brand, too, with notes of eucalyptus, sea salt, aloe, beach wood, and clear musk. This scent was specifically created to represent autism awareness (it was blended by AU Sugar Sugar‘s first autistic employee, too), and I need it in every body product. 

 

Krispie Cottontail Bath Bomb – Listed Value $7

I love bath bombs, and this rainbow-colored egg was perfect for Easter. This had a sweet fragrance of marshmallow rice Krispie treats and gummy bears, and I loved the rainbow bath art this created; just take a look:

Isn’t it gorgeous?

Fairy Garden Rinse-Free Hand Wash – Listed Value $6

This is an aloe and alcohol-based hand wash that doesn’t need water. I don’t believe it has the high alcohol content to be properly labeled as a “hand sanitizer” (according to the page’s Facebook page the alcohol content is 62%- as always, refer to the CDC for any questions about hand sanitizer and the strengths needed), but I definitely classify this as “better than nothing” when the need arises and I am nowhere near a sink. The scent is a blend of wisteria, lilac, and greenery, and once the alcohol dries away the “green” scent is nice on my skin.

Herbal Mint Lip Balm – Listed Value $6

I thought this box felt a bit light, and it was because my box was missing my lip balm. We reached out to AU Sugar Sugar at the beginning of this month about the missing balm and will update this review with their response.

The Verdict: Other than my missing lip balm, I really enjoyed this month’s box. The bath frosting smells amazing, the bath melt is one of my favorite scents from the brand, and the bath bomb was gorgeous. By the listed values, this box adds up to $41.50, which is about even with the cost of the box plus shipping. If you sign up hoping for an amazing deal, you probably won’t be happy, but if you’re looking for well-curated bath and body products in unique scents, with creative packaging, and a great mission, I think this is worth checking out.

To Wrap Up:

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

Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.99 + $8.32 shipping ($43.31), which means each of the 4 items I received has an average cost of $10.83. If you received all 5 items in your shipment, that breaks down to $8.66 per item.

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. I was really disappointed in this box. My bath frosting smelled like industrial strength bathroom air freshener. The bath melts were all mashed up and slimy looking. And I had hoped for an Easter themed box, based on the ‘I’m floppy when I’m hoppy’ teaser. But honestly I don’t know what the heck that really means anyway 😅

    That’s the last box for me. Too light on value!

  2. Anyone know what shipping cos is for their frosting of the month subscription?

    • Hi Stephanie;
      I just checked and as of today, the frosting of the month club has free shipping. I am not sure if that is a limited time offer or the standard

  3. GOOD GRIEF! I live one state from yours, Jessica, and the shipping was not stated before I paid. It was $10.00.

    Are they shipping FROM Australia, or what? Really! I’ve never paid $50 for a small-ish box of bath things.

    First and last box for me because MSA doesn’t even have a discount coupon that would pay for shipping.

    Is this the same sub that required people to follow them around on FB in a group to get a membership? I just realized that UNICORN looks like their icon…. uhh ohh.

    • first, yes it is the same company. They had a wait list on Facebook as they were still really small and could only take so many subscribers. Not sure why that’s a bad thing?

      Second, the review states that shipping is additional.

      Third, MSA isn’t obligated to beg for a shipping discount for you.

      Do your due diligence before subscribing to anything instead of impulse purchasing.

      • I subscribe and purchase a lot of subscription boxes and felt this box was overpriced for what you got and agree with shipping also being overpriced. You get much more products for the same price for the Lavish bath box with cheaper shipping as well. And lavish is a small company as well, so I’m sorry but that just doesn’t seem like a good reason to me.

  4. “Moving forward, they’ll be focusing on hiring those who are on the autism spectrum”

    That is so cool! I see a lot of companies talking about raising awareness, or donating portions of their profits to charities (sometimes questionable ones), but I personally feel like these kinds of commitments are the most effective actions for actually helping marginalized people.

    • I agree Marion! And I love the fact that “inclusion infusion” smells so amazing and was created by their first Autistic employee.
      Thanks for reading!
      Jessica

  5. Are there any subs that are shower versus bath products?

    • Hi Kristin!
      Off the top of my head, the only box that I can think of the Bath Blessing- you can choose to receive shower streamers instead of bath bombs while also still getting other body care items like scrubs and lotions.
      Hope this helps!
      Jessica
