AU Sugar Sugar Subscription Box Review – August 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 Met You In The Summer” August 2020 Review

This box comes with information on the box lid that gives you more details about the brand. 

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

 

Barefoot Blue Jean Night Bath Frosting – Listed Value $14

I am never sad to see a bath frosting in this box, and I love the pink and yellow colors along with the fruity scent fresh strawberries, coconut cream pie, dragon fruit, melon, peach, and plum. For those who are new to reading my AU Sugar Sugar reviews, bath frostings are a whipped soap with scattered sugar granules to gently exfoliate and cleanse your skin without leaving it stripped of moisture. They’re my favorite soap and I have been using them consistently in one scent or another for over a year.

Tan Lines Natural Soap Bar – Listed Value $5.50 

I am not big on bar soaps (due to the product right above this one- I am a whipped soap convert), but I still appreciated the smell of pineapple, coconut, and jasmine. The color is definitely pretty enough for me to put this out as a hand soap for guests to use, which is how I believe I’ll be using mine. 

 

Coconut Creamsicle Moisturizing Mist – Listed Value $9.50 

Even though I suffer from dry skin, sometimes (a lot of the time) I can’t be bothered to take the extra time to rub lotion into my skin. This moisturizing mist is a great solution- I basically just spray, rub, and go, with no heavy feeling or greasy residue left behind. The smell of spiced coconut milk mixed with orange creamsicle really leaves my skin smelling like a tropical snack, but the ease of use is definitely my favorite part about this. 

Caribbean Smoothie Spritz – Listed Value $6.75

This spritz can be used both as a body spray for your hair or skin, or to freshen up your linens. I am definitely a fan of fruity and tropical scents, so I could see this as a great way to refresh my apartment when it feels gloomy and the idea of a tropical vacation seems impossible. Or, if I was going to go lay out by the pool, this would add a nice hint of fragrance without being too perfumey.

 

After Sun Balm Aloe Butter – Listed Value $9.75

This is about as far opposite of a moisturizer from the mist as possible- at room temperature it is firm like solidified coconut oil, but once it comes in contact with your body it melts into an oil. This is a heavy body lotion, and while I haven’t been exposing my legs to the sun this worked really well on freshly shaven legs to soothe irritation. The scent is described as freshly cut pineapple with soft service ice cream, but to my boyfriend’s nose it smelled like a piña colada. Either way, I enjoyed it. 

The Verdict: Tropical scents are an assured way to my heart, so this box worked really well for me. If you’re not a fan of tropical scents, you’re probably disappointed in this box. Sometimes that is just the way the cookie crumbles. My favorite products this month were the lotions- I am picky and indecisive, and now I have a lotion for whatever mood I am in and whatever effort I want to expend- my dry legs thank this box for that. By the listed values, this box adds up to $45.50, which is just about the same as 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 September box!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.99 + $8.32 shipping ($43.31), which means each of the 5 items I received has an average cost of $8.66.

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’ve been reading reviews of this box for years and I finally signed up…after the 14th, so I’ll be getting October’s box first. If I like it, I think I’ll switch to an annual subscription because the amount of the discount per box almost covers the cost of shipping for me. I hate paying for shipping!

    MSA, the link to past reviews doesn’t work

  2. I’m still resentful of this box because I had subbed to their frosting of the month box sometime ago – I don’t think it still exists – and never received anything but month after month they debited my credit card. Finally I got a refund but not before I had to send numerous emails, threaten them, etc. I wouldn’t subscribe to this box if it cost 5 cents a month at this point.

    • It does still exist. Thank you for the warning, because I was tempted to sign up for it.

  3. I think for the money the Lavish Bath Box is a better value (and you get a lot more and quality stuff) But right now I’m REALLY checking out Willow Bella’s Harry Potter themed Halloween box. (it’s $60 but a lot of full sized products!) (I wish I would have gotten that rather than the Fortune Cookie Halloween box now.)

    • Yeah, the FC Halloween box was…underwhelming.

  4. I’ve had my eye on this box, but like you said, it’s pricey. You pretty much cut even with this box. But I love how you said that’s just the way the cookie crumbles! Lol love your reviews Jessica!

  5. This months box has my name written all over it.

  6. This turned out to be a great box.

  7. One day I will break down and get this box lol I love the curation of it every month! Did this box come with a little beach ball?

  8. Cute box altogether. Looks colorful & fun. And the theme is infinitely better than the last one!
