Time for the March 2016 Clean Bar Box unboxing!
If you’re new to them, Clean Bar Box is a subscription that sends you a new selection of handmade bar soap every month.

Let’s see what’s in the March 2016 Clean Bar Box!
The familiar white box.
As always, the box included a handwritten note, along with an info sheet on top of a sea of paper squigglies.
The March box was all about celebrating the start of Spring with some traditional spring-y scents.
Berry Blitz – Mmm… fruity! I was totally expecting to find a pink or purple bar when I opened this box, but don’t let the beige fool you… This is definitely berry-scented!
Spring Scrub – A bright blue, gender-neutral bar with a slightly “zesty” scent. I’m honestly not too crazy about this one… It smells too much like boring “conventional” bar soap. I guess I like more fruity/sweet scents. That said, it’s nice that they included a bar that’s not overly “feminine”.
Green Tea Verbena – The info sheet describes this as having a strong scent, but I actually thought it was pretty subtle. I like it though… It’s a light, fresh scent that definitely has some Spring vibes goin’ on. 😉 It’s also packed with sea salt for natural exfoliation.
English Garden – Another nice, subtle scent that I can’t quite put into words. It’s not very floral, but is somehow reminiscent of the early days of springtime. Maybe a cool spring rainstorm? Whatever it is, it’s quite nice. 🙂
Lately it seems like there’s always one scent in every Clean Bar Box that I’m not a fan of. For March, it was Spring Scrub. I loved the other ones though, so 3 out of 4 is good enough for me! I have more bar soap than I know what to do with these days, but I’m always happy to see what new scents await me every month.
