Let’s see what’s in the May 2016 Clean Bar Box!
As usual, the box was shipped via Priority Mail.
A peek inside.
May’s box included a selection of ‘refreshing and floral” scents.
Lemongrass – I absolutely LOVE the smell of lemongrass so I was happy to see a bar — a full sized one at that — which featured its sweet scent. Lucky for me, I was just about done with my latest bar soap (they last SO long!), so I actually got to switch over to this one last night and it smells even better all sudsed up! Mmm!
African Violet – I’m usually not too keen on floral scents, but thankfully this one isn’t very strong. It has a light, “Spring-y” scent and is infused with real juniper berries.
White Tea Mint – Another lightly scented bar, this one features a combination of white tea and mint. It has a clean, refreshing scent that’s neutral enough for both women and men.
Cherry Almond – I think this one was featured in a previous box, but I’m not complaining. The combination of cherries, almonds, and oatmeal smells SO awesome. Almost good enough to eat. Plus, it’s infused with ground oats for gentle exfoliation.
Clean Bar Box continues to send yummy-smelling handmade soaps at a reasonable monthly price. My favorite this time is definitely the lemongrass, with cherry almond coming in at a close second. 🙂

May 2016 Clean Bar Box Review
Heck yeah, lemongrass! I was a little nervous when I saw the mention of floral scents this month, but was happy to see that only one bar was actually floral-heavy. All of the scents were nice, but they really had me at lemongrass. 😉
