Clean Bar Box time! — January’s box is all about ringing in the new year with “fresh and sweet scents”.
If you’re new to them, Clean Bar Box is a subscription that sends you a new selection of handmade bar soap every month. All of their soaps are totally free of animal products, parabens, lauryl sulfate, petroleum products, and preservatives. Each monthly box includes a variety of scents that are chosen to reflect the current season.
Four different subscription plans are available: The Large Clean Bar Box ($21.99 monthly) includes two full 5-ounce bars and two 2.5 ounce mini bars. The Large Clean Bar Box Every Other Month has the same contents as a regular large box, but is sent every other month for $21.99. The Four Bar Sampler Box ($16.99 monthly) includes four 2.5-ounce mini bars — more than enough for a month’s worth of use. (You can choose to receive the sampler box on an every-other-month basis for the same price as well.) All boxes are shipped free. — For a limited time, you can use coupon code “CLEAN15” to save 15% on any subscription of 3 months or more!
Let’s see what’s in the January 2016 Clean Bar Box!
The box! This month the post office decided to put one of their silly tracking stickers over the logo. I tried to peel it off the best I could, but alas, part of it insisted on sticking around. Har har.
As always, the box included a handwritten note on top of the soaps.
I received the “Large” Clean Bar Box. As mentioned earlier, January’s soaps featured “fresh and sweet scents to start the New Year off right”.
Raspberry Mint Soap – I think this might be the prettiest bar I’ve received from Clean Bar Box to date! The colors remind me of my favorite shade of hair dye that I rocked in high school. 😉 It has a sweet, fruity scent with a touch of mint to keep it from being too sweet. It’s definitely a nice balance.
Apricot Chamomile Soap – I’m not really a huge fan of chamomile, but thankfully the apricot in this bar does well at overshadowing it. The scent is actually pretty light and reminds me of early springtime. A nice contrast to the bolder raspberry mint bar.
Oatmeal Spice Soap – For some reason, I don’t get much of an oatmeal vibe from this one. It smells more earthy/woodsy to me. Definitely more spicy than oatmeal-y, anyway. The little brown specks throughout are ground cloves for exfoliation. 🙂
Pomegranate Cherry Soap – Mmm… You can absolutely smell the cherry fragrance in this one! I love the pretty purple stripes too.
January’s Clean Bar Box had a nice mix of scents. My favorite was probably the apricot chamomile, which is odd since I usually like stronger scented bars… The fruity ones were great too and I loved the pretty purple coloring. A good supply of soaps to start the new year!
