Renaissance Bath & Body is a new subscription box that sends handcrafted items to help you “bathe like a royal”.
Each box will feature an assortment of bath & skincare products inspired by royalty and noteworthy women throughout history. All of the products are handcrafted using natural ingredients and are scented with real essential oils. Items can include bar soap, bath bombs, body scrubs, lotions, and more.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. Post may contain affiliate links.
Subscriptions are $34.99/month with free shipping within the US.
Let’s see what’s in the April 2019 Renaissance Bath & Body box!
Everything was shipped in a pretty floral-themed box with the Renaissance Bath & Body logo on the side.
A peek inside!
An info card included photos and scent names of each of the items in the box. — Personally, I would have liked to have seen additional details, such as key ingredients and actual scents used. Maybe in future boxes?
Royal Enchantress Bar Soap
Inspired by Anne Boleyn, this fragrant bar soap features a plant-based blend of olive, palm, coconut, and castor oils. It’s scented with aromatic lavender, spearmint & peppermint essential oils and is topped with real lavender buds. It also contains powdered honey and tussah silk, making it not quite vegan-friendly. (I don’t personally purchase products with honey, but if I’m gifted something that’s otherwise vegan, I’ll go ahead and use it. 🙂 )
River Goddess Bar Soap
The second bar soap, River Goddess, was inspired by Jacquetta of Luxembourg, the Duchess of Bedford (also known as the Countess Rivers). It contains the same plant-based oil blend as the bar above, but with essential oils of clary sage and lemongrass. This fragrance blend is said to “promote feelings of reverence and spiritual awareness”, as well as “enhance emotional equilibrium as it soothes and uplifts the spirit”.
Royal Invigoration Body Scrub
Inspired by the character and spirit of royalty, this body scrub is formulated to awaken your mind and stimulate healthy circulation. Key ingredients include sugar, avocado oil, foaming bath whip, and essential oils of peppermint & eucalyptus.
Regal Fizz Bath Bomb
I wasn’t able to find any information about this bath bomb on their website, so I couldn’t tell you what it’s made of. I’m also horrible at detecting scents, so I can’t help much in that area. What I can say is that it smells nice and I’m looking forward to using it. 😉
Maid of Orleans Body Lotion(?)
This was another item that I couldn’t locate on their website. It has the consistency of a lotion, so that’s what I’m going with. Like the bath bomb, it smells fantastic!
This final item wasn’t shown/listed on the info card and I’m not 100% sure what exactly it is. At first I thought it was a mini bath bomb, but now I’m thinking small bar of soap? I guess I’ll find out once I get it wet. 😉 Either way, it’s pretty & it smells nice.
Although I was unsure about the “true identity” of the last two items, I really enjoyed my first Renaissance Bath & Body experience! The bar soaps were both beautifully crafted and smell amazing. I’ve been exclusively using (and hoarding?) natural bar soap for a few years now and I’ll be happy to add these to my collection. I was a little bummed about the lack of info/ingredients for the bath bomb, lotion(?), and mini bar soap(?), but other than that I thought it was a great debut box! 🙂
