Every Other Month Large Box (bi-monthly) - contains two 5 oz. bars and two 2.5 oz. bars - $19.99
This review is for the Monthly Large Box which came in a medium-sized branded box.
The smell just got better and better as I opened the box. Here's the first peek inside:
The pink note contains a hand written message welcoming me (very nice touch!) and there is a sheet of paper that tells about each of the soaps in this box.
The two 5 oz. (full size) soaps are packaged in cardboard boxes and the two 2.5 oz. soaps (half size) are in drawstring muslin bags...all very eco-friendly!
The first small soap is "Cotton Blossom"; I absolutely love this scent! It smells like clean, fresh laundry...only better. I am considering slicing this up and using small pieces to scent various dresser drawers; it's that good.
The second small soap is "Cucumber Melon" another very fresh and clean scent. (We really need Smell-a-Blog right now!) The color combination is dark green swirled with white (my camera washed out the color; it's actually a much deeper shade of green).
This 5 oz. soap is called "Blueberry Scrub" and it does smell exactly like fresh, fruity blueberries...maybe even better. This soap contains sea salt and oatmeal which is why it's called a scrub bar. Again, my camera failed the color; it's actually a deep dark blueberry blue...very pretty!
The second big soap is "Summer Citrus" and it's a bright mix of lemonade, oranges and key lime pie. This would be a wonderful invigorating morning wake-up soap!
I have tried several soap subscriptions and usually the reason I cancel is that the scents are too herbal or medicinal smelling; sometimes, they are downright unpleasant. That is not the case here. These soaps have amazing (some delicious!) scents and I'm sure they will add a wonderful (not overwhelming) scent to the bathroom.
By the way, I weighed all these soaps and they do weigh 2.5 oz. or 5 oz. each, as promised. (I've found that to be a problem with a couple of boxes in the past.) If you've bought any artisan soaps lately, you know how expensive they are. At $19.99, this box is a real bargain. Since I signed up for a multi-month subscription and used a discount code, this box cost me just $16.50. The value, as well as the quality, is clear!
If you want to try any of these soaps individually, you can buy them a la carte in the Clean Bar Shop. If you just want to check out Clean Bar Box, you can also purchase a non-renewing box which contains two full size bars and two half size bars in the current month's scents. At the moment, I also see a Men's Soap Gift Box in their store which I bet would make a terrific gift.
If you're ready to jump right in, use code FIRST5 or 5OFF for $5 off your first order. Also, the code CLEAN10 is good for a 10% discount which may be a better deal depending on the subscription term and box size you choose. You can also use FIRSTBOX for a $3 discount.
I am beyond happy with my first Clean Bar Box...can't wait to see what they send next month. Check out this company; you won't be disappointed!
