AU Sugar Sugar Subscription Box Review – September 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 “Don’t Have a Witch Fit” September 2020 Review

This box arrives 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.

Horror Flick Lip Oil – Listed Value $6.50 

This lip oil was love at first use: it was SO moisturizing, my lips looked glossy, and the roller ball application made things more fun (hey, I don’t make the rules). Plus, it tastes like buttered popcorn and the moisture lasted for hours on my lips. 

Hello Clarice Hand Sanitizing Spray – Listed Value $7.95

There have been times that a subscription box referenced a movie I haven’t seen (cough-Fortune-Cookie-Soap-cough), so I was really happy to get the pop culture references in this box. There’s something morbidly poetic about a hand sanitizing spray referencing a scary movie about a cannibal, but honestly I’m down for it. ‘Tis the spooky season, after all. The spray application of this sanitizer makes it easy to spray and go, and once the germs are killed your hands are left smelling like sandalwood, vanilla, raspberry, and smoke. 

Tell ‘Em Freddy Sent Ya Bath Frosting, 8 oz – Listed Value $14

I haven’t actually seen A Nightmare on Elm Street, but it’s on my list of movies to watch this October! This bath frosting smells like warm pumpkin bread, and the whipped soap left my skin feeling soft and clean without feeling stripped or tight. 

You Could Of Had A Bad Witch Shimmering Shower Gel, 6 oz – Listed Value $9.50

I love a Lizzo reference, and this shower gel is a shimmering eggplant purple that I think she would love (based entirely on her performance persona, because I don’t know her personally). Scented with notes of mandarin orange, grapefruit, peach, plum, rose, and Nubian musk this shower gel is on the creamier side rather than sudsy, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry while it added some extra fun to my shower. 

Fright Night Bath Bomb – Listed Value $8

I am ALWAYS happy to receive a bath bomb in a subscription box – I don’t review as many bath subscription boxes as I used too, so I’ll take all the products I can get to supplement my Lush addiction. This smells pretty similar to cotton candy (I don’t know if “blue cotton candy” smells different than regular – please discuss), and I had fun watching the jack-o-lantern skull fizz away.

The Verdict: I’ve been reviewing this box for a while, and their Halloween box is always a treat to experience. This year’s box was no exception, and I loved the spooky references and fun packaging found throughout this box. All of the scents were yummy, and I really felt like this helped to get me ready for Halloween – does anyone have any scary movie suggestions I should add to my watch list? By the listed values, this box adds up to $45.95, 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 October 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. Hey Jessica,

    AMC has Horrorfest the whole month of October. They will be airing every single Friday the 13th movie , if you’re interested. Great review ! I really want that hand sanitizer, since I’m a huge fan of Hannibal on Netflix.

  2. Wow the reviews are brutal, take it easy, as for the spelling correction, did you ever think that is the way it should be spelled for this product?
    It’s disappointing this is a September box when clearly should be an October box, and you can’t get it even if you like it.

    • For anyone reading this in the future, my October box just came today, 10/28. I think having this Halloween themed box as the September box was the right call because it probably shipped at the end of September, allowing enjoyment of the theme for the whole month of October. Also, the October scents are really nice.

  3. I liked all of this except for the swiped, unlicensed pic of Robert Englund. It is not cool to steal a pic like that.

    • That’s clearly clip art, not an official photo. Making a soap inspired by a film character is pretty transformative; I’d say this likely qualifies as fair use of the copyrighted character. I don’t think there’s any way of knowing whether AU Sugar Sugar paid for that art or not unless you ask them, and some clip art is royalty-free, anyway.

  4. Can someone who owns the body meringue from this company please let me know the full ingredient list? I cannot find them anywhere on their website, a Facebook page, etc.

  5. Nevermind as I ended up Googling it… Not exactly my thing lol.. But Ok.

    Fun box though.

    • I had wrote another post prior to this one answering my own question, but doesn’t seem to have posted.

  6. Lizzo? I’m not sure who or what that is with the witch product? Not understanding the reference?

    What horror movie is it from?

  7. Hope I’m not the only one cringing at “could of” had a bad witch. Should be “could’ve” or “could have” – it got all the way out to customers without anyone noticing that?

    • Whenever I see that i get a twitch. It drives me crazy.

    • The name is taken from the Lizzo song Truth Hurts. It’s “coulda/could of” in the lyrics.

    • I see that being used so often. It’s troubling. Makes me cringe.

    • I really hate that too. I see it everywhere now.
