AU Sugar Sugar Subscription Box Review – October 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 “Cozy Sweaters, Apple Cider,  & A Bonfire” October 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.

I’m Thankful For Sunday Mornings Spritz, 4 oz 

I normally don’t love the spritzes sent in the box, but that’s because I’m more of a perfume than body spray person and the scents never really jive with what I want my linens to smell like.  That all changed with this spritz, however – I am in love. The scent blend of apple pumpkin pancakes is everything I love about autumn, and the scent has some nice staying power. I sprayed this on a blanket I leave at the foot of my bed, and the next day when I walked into my apartment I was able to catch a whiff of the lovely scent. I am a big fan, and this smells amazing. 


One Hot Piece Of Pie Bath Frosting, 8 oz – Listed Value $14

If you’ve read any of my previous Au Sugar Sugar reviews, you know that the bath frostings are one of the most popular products from the brand – with good reason!  The mix of whipped soap and scattered exfoliating sugar granules cleanses and gently exfoliates your skin without being stripping thanks to the oils and butters this is formulated with. The fragrance in this is a mix of hot apple pie and buttery orange chiffon cake, and it is delicious.


October Sky Sugar Scrub, 8 oz – Listed Value $12.50 

I alternate between over-exfoliating and irritating my skin and then taking a break from exfoliating and then I get rough textures on the backs of my arms. While I continue to try and perfect this cycle, I appreciate that I’ll have scent notes of frosted black raspberries, crisp fall air, and warm vanilla to enjoy while this sugar scrub gets to work. 

Punkin Butt Pumpkin Body Butter, 4 oz – Listed Value $16.50 

This body butter features organic pumpkin seed oil and sunflower extract, and I believe those upgraded ingredients is what makes this body butter different from the regular lotions this box sends. The scent is another great autumn blend, with notes of sweet pumpkin, marzipan, honey, and oatmeal milk, and it was richly nourishing to my dry skin. I used this after the sugar scrub, and my skin felt so soft while smelling great. 


The Verdict: I say this often, but this was another great box from Au Sugar Sugar. I love strong autumn scents, and this box delivered. Plus, being pleasantly surprised by the spritz made this box even more enjoyable. One of the items didn’t have a value listed (the spritz), but you can usually expect the value to be 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 December 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.

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. Aagghhhh I want this sub too!! I recently started Fortune Cookie and LOVE it so I don’t want to stop that one but I already have like 8 subs – and I also want Bakery Box. I can only justify so many boxes coming in to the boyfriend 🙂

  2. OMG!! That punkin butt brought me to tears. My baby sister passed away and that is what I called her.. sigh

    • I am so sorry for your loss. My little sister died 20 years ago (at age 20) and it amazes me how much I still miss her and what can set me off. Good vibes for peace and hugs for the holidays.

  3. A lot of ways one can pamper themselves that’s for sure!

  4. I love reading the reviews on this box and always thought the bath frosting sounded heavenly. Being on product overload the value was never there for me but being the mother of a 20 year old autistic son I find this mission hits close to home and I will definitely be adding this sub to my list after the holidays!

    • Hi Shannon,

      I too have a young adult son with Autism.
      I am looking over my subscriptions and getting rid of one or two so that I can afford this one as well.

      My hope is that more people support this business and others that employ young adults on the spectrum.

  5. I finally subbed to this after reading reviews for soooo long. This reviewed box was my first and favorite bath box of all time! Honestly, I thought you might be exaggerating about the Bath Frosting…nope. It is the absolute best soap product I have ever used for my year-round dry, itchy, irritated skin. The smell on this one was fabulous and had me looking forward to showers-a tough feat for my dry, itchy, irritated skin. I was blown away by the mist (I also use it as a room mist for an instant happy) and the body butter. I did switch over from the Box of Sugar to the Bath Frosting of the Month because of product overload. I’m so happy they offer it as a stand alone subscription. I debated it because the price is higher than I really want to spend on soap, but it’s a fabulous product that I thoroughly enjoy using. The indulgence is well worth it to me! What makes the texture and consistency of the Bath Frosting so wonderful and addicting?? It’s somehow dense, creamy and fluffy at the same time. Never have I ever enjoyed using soap, but I love reaching into that jar and scooping out a bit of Frosting! It’s my new favorite thing.

  6. I would be interested in seeing this box in comparison to the Fortune Cookie Soap box.

    • I suppose they could be compared product wise, but it would be hard comparing something that’s $16.95 with free shipping and something that’s $34.99 plus shipping.

    • This reminds me of the Bakery Box sub. It’s $25/month and comes with bath/shower/body products centered around different desserts!

  7. The rough texture on the back of the arms (or thighs, or butt) is called keratosis pilaris and it’s better treated with chemical exfoliants like certain acids, though physical exfoliants do help. If you don’t like using chemical exfoliants on large areas the Fur Oil ingrown concentrate has worked really well for me but it is painfully expensive.

    • To add on about keratosis, my doctor said it comes on with dry skin. Keeping your skin well-nourished might help. For my skin and my toddlers’, oils and body butters right after a shower (FCS unscented Shower Oil and Body Shop Aloe Body Butter are 2 of my favorites) seem to work best and the combo of the Bath Frosting and Body Butter in this box did the trick for me! I wish the Au Sugar Sugar Body Butter was available unscented.

    • It runs in my family, we call it chicken skin. My 21y/o suffers the worst, Eucerin works the best for her. My dh and kids all have it on the backs of their arms, I have it on the front of my thighs. My boys just don’t really care much, it doesn’t really bother them, nor me.

      • I thought I was the only one who called it chicken skin (I call it chicken scratch actually but close enough) so glad to see another!!!

  8. Yes, I have read your previous reviews, & that is why I want to try a bath frosting so badly! 😓

  9. Another fantastic review Jessica. fyi I subbed to this box for a year because of your reviews. I ended up not resubscribing because all the scents aren’t always my thing, but I loved the quality of the products.
