The August 2015 Clean Bar Box celebrates all things tropical. Since I’m a huge fan of tropical scents, this box really appealed to me. All Clean Bar Box soaps are vegan, contain no preservatives, animal products, petroleum products, parabens, or lauryl sulfates. They’re made with coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter with some other ingredient differences depending on the scent.
Mango– Fruity and sweet, this is one of the highlights of the box. I was surprised it was green because I always think of the yellow mangoes first but I guess green is appropriate. And seriously… drool. It smells amazing.
Bay Rum– I love the smell of Bay Rum! I’m going to get my husband to use this. He might turn up his nose at Mango but this should be sufficiently manly.
Citrus Basil– This box had to sit unopened in my office for a day or two. That whole time I kept thinking how amazing it smelled in the room. I didn’t realize it was the Clean Bar Box until I opened it. And this Citrus Basil was the main reason for the wonderful scent. I’d say it was my favorite but I can’t actually decide because everything smells so good.
Banana Coconut Scrub– This is fantastic! I love this scent combo. Not only does it smell amazing, it also has sea salt in it for a little exfoliation action in the shower. I usually save the half size bars for hands and a soap dish but this one deserves better.
VERDICT: Once again, Clean Bar Box spices up my showertime. It’s so hard to decide which bar to start with. These are nice handmade, moisturizing bar soaps. The soaps create good foam and are just slightly on the soft side which I prefer. One of the best things about handmade soaps are the unique scent combinations you can get. Clean Bar Box always has such good smelling and fun scents. It’s one of the things that keeps me going back to small batch soaps.
