So today’s box is going to leave us clean and smelling sweet. The lovely peeps at the Clean Bar Box graciously sent me one of their natural soap samplers for review.

I received the June Clean Bar Box in the half bar sampler size which costs $14.99 monthly (discounts are available for prepaying months).
Summer Citrus (Full Size Retail: $6.99)
Description: “This soap is everything good about summer. Start your morning with a soap that smells like a tall glass of cold lemonade, fresh ripe oranges and a thick slice of key lime pie all in one!”
Citrus scents are my favorite, especially in shower products so this one is a win for me.
Blueberry Scrub (Full Size Retail: $6.99)
Description: “June is right in the middle of Blueberry season, and there’s nothing like snacking on some fresh blueberries under the warm summer sun. This blueberry scrub bar also contains sea salt and oatmeal for a deep scrub in the shower! This soap matches perfectly with the sweet and tart summer citrus bar.”
I adore scrub bars because they are an easy way to exfoliate in the shower. I’m also really fond of fruit scented shower products so this one was another great addition.
Cucumber Melon (Full Size Retail: $6.99)
Description: “Cool as a cucumber is a saying for a reason. Stay cool in June with our refreshing cucumber melon soap packed with the smell of THE summer fruit. Its beautiful white and dark green swirls also look great in any bathroom display or by the sink.”
Cucumber is always a fresh clean scent and is one of my favorites when the temperatures start to rise. Another great pick.
Cotton Blossom (Full Size Retail: $6.99)
Description: “Cotton blossom is a classic scent of soap that most people will I nstnatly recognize. It has a strong and instantly invigorating scent that smells like fresh linens! Use it in the shower to wake you up smelling great or use it to freshen up a room.”
Unfortunately this one was is a big miss for me. It’s just way too strong. It kind of reminded me of the scent of Irish Spring (which always gives me headaches). I’m going to have to pass this along to someone who prefers a stronger soap and who’s bathroom I won’t be going to regularly.
I really enjoy trying natural and handmade products and I loved the scents on all but one of these soaps. The packaging on them was quite lovely, making the sampler nice for gifting. Changing your soap scents seasonally is a fun idea and one that I plan to adopt asap. Clean Bar Box offers several different sizes of boxes, but I like this monthly half size box because you can sample all the seasonal scents and then order your favorites in a regular size from their store. I received this box for free, but the regular cost is $14.99 (which includes shipping). That’s a touch high but these are all natural, handmade specialty soaps so I think the cost is justified and I’d be fine in paying that amount for this box. You can also lower the cost by prepaying several months in advance.
So do you change up your soap and toiletry scents by season?
“Clean Bar Box is a monthly and bi-monthly soap subscription box that delivers artisan handmade soaps carefully selected to match the scents of the season right to your door. Every monthly or bi-monthly box includes 4 different tantalizing scents.”
