Bath Time Box Review, July 2015 + 15% Discount Code!

Just when you think there can't possibly be another bath or body product you haven't tried, along comes a Bath Time Box! The sheer variety of items as well as their quality make this box an absolute delight to receive.  Every box feels like the gift you WISH you'd get for special occasions.

Bath Time Boxes come from Canada and cost $29 if you pay on a monthly basis. For a three month subscription, it's $85 and for an annual plan, it is $335.  Shipping is free.  Each box includes about five bath products that can be anything from soap to bath salts and bubble bath or lotions and accessories.  

For July, I think they made a needed change in down-sizing the box.  The quantity of products is the same but since the box is smaller, the items didn't have a chance to roll around as much and so were in better condition when I received them.  

This more compact box contained a great-smelling mix of five items. 

The information sheet is basic but names each product, tells about it and gives the size and retail price.

First out is a 4 oz. tube of Oats, Milk & Honey Lotion.  My Mom and I tried a bit of this on our hands.  It's a light lotion that works into the skin quickly and leaves a lovely scent that smells faintly of sweet almond.  I don't see almond mentioned on the ingredient label but that's what it smells like to us!  

I photographed this bath bomb from the back side to show its pretty pale green color but unfortunately, the picture is over-exposed.  This is in "Margarita" which has a lime-y scent.  It's about 30% disintegrated in the package but who cares when you're just going to dump the whole package under running water anyway! The information sheet says this will provide 15 minutes of foaming action.

Oil cleansers have received a lot of good press in the beauty world lately.  I don't have much experience with them myself but this Exfoliating Oil Cleanser is certainly a timely addition to the box.  The information sheet says it is a combination of coconut and olive oil mixed with kaolin clay and lavender and lemon essential oils.  It exfoliates gently and calms skin.

This Rose & Aloe Toner is a good follow-up to the oil cleanser; it tightens and soothes.  I thought this would have a rose scent but it's actually unscented...better for your face!  It also contains skin-friendly aloe and Vitamin E.

I liked this Coconut Lime bar of soap as soon as I saw it; how could you not with the green and orange citrus looking swirl?  It's made with coconut water and mango butter among other things.  I've really enjoyed previous soaps from Bath Time Box (especially the Lemon Poppyseed soap from the April box) so am looking forward to trying this one.

With a total retail price of $38.50, I am very happy with the July box in terms of value. I love the summery mix of items (a couple of which look good enough to eat) and the opportunity to try a few things that are new to me.    

There aren't too many bath sub boxes around and of those that do exist, I think Bath Time Box is the only one that provides mostly full sizes.  If you're interested in checking them out, they have a summer promotion right now where you can use code SUN15 to get 15% off a three month subscription. If you appreciate great bath products, you'll enjoy this box!


P.S.  I think a Bath Time Box subscription would make an excellent gift.  You can pre-pay for whatever term length you want.  The cost is the same as the subscription rates mentioned above.
