Butterfly Party Soap July 2015

Kia Ora!

My latest edition of the Butterfly Party Soap Box (Bath and Body Edition) arrived earlier this week, and it smells phenomenal. There are 8 products in the box this month, and the theme is Christmas in July with a focus on delicious Christmas fragrances. I paid $70 AUD with $15 overseas shipping for a three months subscription. Let's see what awaits us in July!



Apple Pie Luxury Soap

I love the soap samples included in these boxes. This smells like apples and cinnamon, and looks really yum. I'm not sure if I should use this, or hoard it for a Christmas present. Either way, I'm really happy to have it as part of the box.  


 Jelly Soap - Snow Drift

This is described as "a delicious smelling soap that is literally like a tub of jelly." It's a glittery blue jelly, and I'm really excited to try it out. I know Lush has a jelly soap, but I've never tried it. I can't wait to see how this one works. It smells minty fresh with a hint of ... men's cologne? I'm not great at identifying scents but it smells nice.


Foamy Scrub - Hot Chocolate

This is a cross between soap and shower gel according to the product description. The best things is, it smells exactly like a hot chocolate. Nothing fake about the scent at all, and I honestly want to bury my nose in it and never breathe anything else again.


Bath Whip - Mrs Claus' Cookies

My favourite thing about this product (other than the scent which I'll get to) is the perfect grammar in the title. The apostrophe after the 's' in Claus without repeating the 's' again afterwards makes my heart sing. #grammarnerdforlife.

The scent of this mousse is very sweet. Not cookies exactly, but something sweet and buttery. It's another winning scent in this box.  


Body Butter - Pumpkin Pudding

I've never smelled, seen, or eaten Pumpkin pudding/pie before, although America seems obsessed with it. This is a very thick body butter, and you only really need a tiny bit. It smells of sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. I really like it. It hydrates the skin, although it does have a little bit of a greasy texture.  


Next are two tiny samples of Foamy Scrub in Elf Sweat and Vanilla Bean Noel. Vanilla Bean Noel is a vanilla scent, although not as sweet as fake vanilla, and Elf Sweat smells like sharp pines? I'm not sure, although it clears the nostrils. I'm excited to use both. 


Lip Balm - Gingerbread Cookie

This is a very oily lip balm, and I'm not sure I'm a huge fan. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely lip balm, but I don't find it stays on for long, although it does have a great flavour (excatly like gingerbread). I'm not totally sold on this one, although a lip balm is always a useful addition to a box.

Overall I liked nearly every product in this box, and I loved every scent. I can't wait to use the products in the box, and I am really excited for August to arrive. This is one of the best boxes I've found in quite awhile, the Australian version of the Fortune Cookie Soap Box.

What do you readers think of this box?

Until next time ...
