I hope you all had a wonderful, love filled Valentines day! There are many ways to experience love on Valentines day and one of those ways is by pampering yourself. I was so fortunate this month to receive an amazing subscription box of goodies designed to do just that.
BabyCorn Bath and Body crafts artisan soaps, lotions, body oils, lip balms, sugar scrubs, bath bombs and more. Each month, you can receive a selection of Cornea’s amazing products in a gorgeously packaged box to pamper yourself in so many ways.
I received the February box, which of course had a love theme.
One of the great features of the BabyCorn subscription box was this personalized letter that had really great descriptions of each item. They were so funny I have to share them with you.
In my package were the following items:
You Da ‘Bomb’ Bath Bomb 8oz
“Oh you know you are, you little bombshell, you! Let’s just skip right to dessert. Rich decadent notes of brown sugar and vanilla nestled with a hint of musk warm our hearts. Just throw it in the tub and watch it fizz! …”
This thing was GIANT! Seriously about the size of a baseball and it smells amazing. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to use it yet because our bathtub is not holding water, but I am certain that it is going to be a mind blowing experience. I love bath bombs but I’ve never received one in the mail that held up or smelled as wonderful as this one.
Sweet Pea Milk and Shea Butter Soap, 3oz
“One of our bestselling fragrances, sweet pea petals and watery pear entwine with sheer freesia, fresh berry and soft, delicate musk to create this beautiful, delicate scent showering you with sweet nothings and puppy love. Packed full of shea butter, avocado butter, olive oil, coconut oil, aloe vera oil, goat milk and vitamins A and E. . .”
I don’t know how she did it, but this soap is engraved with words of love. It was so pretty, we almost didn’t want to use it but it has quickly become our favorite hand soap. My daughter and I use it to wash our hands and face. It smells wonderful, not too strong; and leaves your hands feeling soft and moisturized.
Kiss and Tell Organic Lip Balm, 1oz
“Pucker up for your sweet chap. Scented in Sweet Apple, this lip balm will keep your lips so soft this cold month that the apple of your eye will be sure to seal it with a kiss.”
1 oz is a ton of lip balm! I like this one because the fragrance/flavor is very mild. Its ultra moisturizing without being sticky like some lip glosses/balms can be. I have been using this as a lip balm and as a cuticle cream.
Love Spell Sugar Scrubs, 3oz
“Cast a spell to ward off dead skin cells and fall in love with yourself all over again. Just take a heart into the shower with you and squish it under warm water to turn it into a soft scrub! It cleans, exfoliates and moisturizes all in one! . . .”
There were about eight of these in a little bag. A mix of pink and purple, but all the same scent. I will admit that with the first one, I skipped over reading the part about taking them into the shower and instead tried to use it at the sink. I got one wet and scrubbed it across my hands like a soap. The sugar was very exfoliating the fragrance stays with you for a long time.
Pink Sugar Body Oil, 0.5oz
“Hey there sweet thang. This bath & body oil can be applied while you are still damp after a shower, before bed, as a massage oil, on the ends of your hair or poured in the bath- whenever you need some warming love and care. It’s a non-alcoholic, vegan, paraben free, phthalate free perfume oil, perfect for throwing in your purse and freshening up during the day. Just apply to wrists and pressure points and you are ready to go, sugar! Bask in sweet delectable cotton candy essence with hints of jasmine and musk all day long.”
I. LOVE. THIS. OIL!!! Seriously it is the best thing ever. It smells amazing. Swoon-worthy. I dabbed a little on my neck and wrists and when my husband got home he nearly attacked my neck. He couldn’t stop leaning down and nuzzling me.
I have been wearing it every day as a perfume and I started using it as a cuticle oil as well. My cuticles have been really dry with the cold weather and all the hand washing to avoid germs. With this oil, I no longer have hangnails, splits at the tip edges of my fingers or cracking. I want to buy this by the gallon because I love it so much.
“Can you feel your heart melting? Enjoy our solid lotion bar by just rubbing the bar onto your skin. The shea and avocado butters melt to the warmth of your skin, leaving you moisturized and scented with a soothing combination of Spanish lavender and warm Madagascar Vanilla. A little something to share with your butter half.”
I’ve been interested in trying a solid lotion bar and this one did not disappoint.
The moisturizing effect of this is much thicker than your standard hand cream. It feels a little heavy and greasy at first but starts to absorb into your skin immediately and leaves you with soft, sweet smelling hands that don’t feel greasy at all.
My lotion bar broke into two pieces when I was using it, but it was actually a little easier to use in the smaller pieces.
The subscription boxes are only $20 with shipping which is an insanely good deal when you consider you are getting up to 6 full sized items. The retail value is $30-$35 so its really a great bargain!
