AU Sugar Sugar Subscription Box Review – April 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 “You’re Invited To Our Tea Party” April 2020 Review

This box comes with a sheet that gives you more details about the brand. 

It also comes with an info sheet detailing the products included this month.

 

Hand Sewn Fabric Face Mask – Listed Value $6

Hello, new best friend! This arrived when wearing masks was becoming more of a requirement, but weren’t an item I had handy. I love the different colors of the blue fabric, and this was comfortable to wear. The folds also stretch a bit, so it covered both my mouth and nose with room to spare. 

The Southern Palmer Spritz, 2 oz – Listed Value $6.75

I normally love the scents created by Au Sugar Sugar, but I didn’t jive with this one. It has notes of sweet southern iced tea and freshly squeezed lemonade, but when I used it as a spray on my linens, it left a bit of a bitter scent on my nose. 

 

Dapper Little Bunny Soy Wax Clamshell – Listed Value $3.75 

These wax cubes, on the other hand, smell amazing. With notes of white tea, plumeria, and ginger, this really refreshes the space where it’s melted. Since I don’t have a wax melter, I thought I would share how I still enjoy wax melts like these.

 

I place the wax cubes inside of a heatproof dish (in this case, my mini Le Creuset ramekin) and place that dish in a pan with a few inches of water. I turn the heat on my stove to low, and in a little while the heat from the water has melted the wax! With this method, you have to take care and make sure to not let all the water evaporate, but it’s better than not being able to use these bad boys at all because of a lack of equipment. 

 

Front Porch Swing Sugar Scrub – Listed Value $12

I prefer the bath frostings to sugar scrubs from this brand, but this product won’t go to waste. The scent is a blend of Earl Grey tea, juicy Georgia peaches, lemonade, and elderflower, and it’s a really refreshing, light scent. This scrub is on the dry side so I only use it about once a week, but it definitely leaves my skin feeling smooth- and I really appreciate the pretty colors peaking through the packaging.

 

Tub Tea Bath Soak – Listed Value $8

Anything that’s designed for me to use in the bathtub is exactly what I want to receive in a subscription box. This bath tea is made with oats, sea salt, lavender essential oil, dried jasmine, blue cornflower, and hibiscus petals. The resulting scent was very light, but when combined with oats and sea salt made for a comforting bath. 

High Tea Rinse-Free Hand Wash, 2 oz – Listed Value $6

This hand wash has a scent blend of black tea, lemon, maple, and vanilla, and unlike most products of this nature it doesn’t smell overpowering with the scent of the alcohol. I don’t believe this has the high alcohol content to be properly labeled as a “hand sanitizer” (according to the brand’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 Verdict: This box had a great mix of good smells and practical items, and overall I’m happy with the box contents even though I didn’t love the spritz. By the listed values, this box adds up to $42.50, 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 June box!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.99 + $8.32 shipping ($43.31), which means each of the 6 items I received has an average cost of $7.22.

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. So glad I unsubscribed. Like other reviewers I always looked forward to the bath frosting but instead the sugar bath scrub appears more frequently perhaps attempting to encourage a separate sub to the bath frosting club. Really a shame how this box has declined in value and content.

  2. Jessica, I just got a box last week and it had NONE of these products.. Do they send out boxes that are total variations?
    I have no clue what month I got or anything.

  3. I love Bath products, but it does seem a little pricey compared to the Fortune Cookie Soap Co, that I have recently decided to give a try. Generally when I am just trying out new products I like to feel as if I am getting a deep discount, as some of the products may just not be for me. With that being said I may try this subscription at a later date, right now sticking with the bargains.
    Thank you Jessica for the review, you always give a great review.

    • Thank you for your review! I always enjoy yours. This sounds like a really nice box and love they included a face mask. I will keep my eye on this.

  4. No frosting? Anyway I would never re-sub to this box, re-branded or no – I made that mistake last year and they charged my card 3 months in a row without sending anything. After numerous threats, etc., I did manage to get them to credit my card and cancel the sub, but I wouldn’t subscribe to this box if it was free. I also noticed similar comments in the past from people who were not too impressed with this outfit’s ability to fulfill their orders. Funny how MSA never seemed to have a problem with them.

    • Exactly!! .. Why the comments are sometimes more important then the actual reviews.

    • As someone that actually lives in the center of New Orleans, I tried finding where this company is located. Their Twitter link didn’t connect me to anything. Their FB link directed me to MSA’s reviews. On CrateJoy, it uses EST, which LA is CST. It is kind of strange. It is irksome to a lot of New Orleanians to hear people say they are from NOLA and then find out they’re from the North Shore, BR, S’port, or Metairie, (all great cities and towns, just not NOLA) etc. We take great pride in our city, warts and all. I hope this company is not representing that they are from here and behaving like that. I am so sorry to read that any company would charge someone three times and send nothing. That”s exactly what the comments are for, just as someone already expressed. Thank goodness for comments!

      • They’re located in Charlotte, North Carolina. You may be thinking of a different company.
