Clean Bar Box July 2015 Monthly Soap Subscription Review and Coupon Code

Honestly, the Clean Bar Box for July 2015 smells so good I want to lick it. When I opened the door to get the box off my porch, the scent wafting from it made my mouth water. With the box lid open, I know why it did that.

I really have been enjoying my Clean Bar Boxes. The scents have been varied and wonderful. The full-size soaps are large and I feel like the box is quite competitively priced. These are handpoured, small-batch soaps with no preservatives, animal products, petroleum products, parabens, or lauryl sulfate.

The Cost: $19.99/monthly or bi-monthly

What You Get: Four bars of handmade, seasonally appropriate, scented soaps. Two full size at ~5oz and two half size at ~2.5oz.

Lemon Coconut- So just the thought of those two words makes me drool. Actually smelling them? Double drool. This soap smells fantastic. It smells like summer and fresh squeezed lemon. The coconut is there but subtle which is nice because sometimes coconut can overpower everything and you suddenly think you're wearing tanning oil. No. This bar is pure soapy perfection.
Value: $6.99
Wild Flowers- This is another full size soap and while I normally don't go for florals, this smells like something I love. Freesia, maybe? I can't tell. But it smells delicate and pretty. And it's pink!
This is a large bar like the Lemon  Coconut so it's right around 5oz. It's going to last you a loooong time. Unless you take extra showers just to use it.
Value: $6.99
Peach Tea Scrub- This is not a super strong peach but that's okay because the main attraction for me is the exfoliation power of the sea salt and oatmeal that have been added to the bar. This is another half size bar and I will admit that it's much easier to wield the half sizes in the shower. I have small hands so that might be why I like them better.
Value: $3.50

Stars N' Stripes- This is in honor of Independence Day and I love the red, white and blue swirls. I also love the smell. It smells like Love Spell. Isn't that an old Victoria's Secret fragrance? Well, the info says it smells like passionfruit and tropical smoothies but I think it smells amazing.
This is a half size bar so it's 2.5oz  which is still a great size.
Value: $3.50

VERDICT: I absolutely adore the scents that Clean Bar Box has included in this box. For that matter, all their boxes have been wonderful in the scent department. The soaps themselves are made with olive oil, coconut oil, soybean oil, hemp oil, corn oil, shea butter, fragrance and coloring. The recipe stays the same for most of the bars although there are additions like sea salt and oatmeal. The oil combination makes for a slightly soft soap that makes great lather. I suggest using a soap dish if this is going to be used as a hand soap at a sink.

I like the idea they have of a Sampler Box with 4 half size soaps. Of course, you could always get the big sizes and cut them in half (which I only just thought of and I will be doing). My husband exclusively uses bar soap in the shower though I tend to switch it up. I think that the bi-monthly box would probably be the most beneficial to couples, whereas families might want to get one monthly. The only thing about that is you miss the scents in between your months which would make getting the Sampler Box every month a good idea. Tough decision...

If you'd like to sign up for Clean Bar Box, you can do that here. I believe if you sign up now you'll get this exact July box, too. You can also buy soaps straight from their shop. Make sure to use a coupon code! There are currently two available: FIRSTBOX $3.00 off your first box and
CLEAN15 15% off all 3-month and 4-month subscriptions.
