Bauble Bath Haul

This is a haul I got in the mail a few weeks ago. Honestly, I'm not too happy with Bauble Bath. I ordered the body scrub sampler which came with 5 one oz sample scrubs and I also ordered the bauble surprise made up of some samples and some full size products. Mine came with bath bombs, mini bath bomb, soaps, bath melts, a full size sugar scrub, shea butter, and pistachio butter.

Honestly, I feel like a lot of the scents I received were reject scents. The ones that people don't order so they have a lot of leftovers and let me tell you, I don't like about 85% of the scents that I received. I also got things like soap that I didn't even know they sell because it's not on the website... I also got two, three of the same scents in the same things (like 3 of the same bath bombs). I know it's a sampler and they can virtually put whatever they want in them, but isn't the whole point of a sampler to try different scents? Not 3 of the same thing?

Anyway, moving on to the products themselves. The sugar scrubs are true SUGAR scrubs. Nothing but sugar. They were a bit dry when I opened them and I was hoping for a more creamy/foaming sugar scrub. Not exactly what I was expecting.. I use them on my face occasionally as a face scrub because these scrubs are sugar and only sugar.. I could've made this myself! lol

The bath bombs lose their scent once they hit the water (thank god in this case, since I don't really like the scents I got but am going to use them anyway cuz I paid for them). This is my first time using a bath fizz, and I was really disappointed. There wasn't much fizz either.

Scents I received:
Lavender Hills
Candied Petals
Mystery Fragrance
Berry Cream
Ceylon Black Tea
Acorns & Oak
Caramel Apple
Kumquat Marmalade
Miss Mary Mint
Jasmine Tea
Earl Grey & Chamomile
Blushing Pink

6 also came unlabeled and aren't on the website so I have no clue what they are.

I definitely wouldn't buy from them again. The scents from the website look so enticing so I figured I couldn't go wrong if I chose a sampler since most of the scents on their sound yummy and I didn't know which ones I wanted to try... but they sent me scents that weren't even on the website and were probably not their best sellers.

Aw that's such a shame..
And plus it's not even very nice of them! :(

But it's good that you shared the info with us, so we don't do the same 'mistake' of buying the sugar scrub and sampler.

sorry to hear about that. samples should never be repeated unless they are THAT good! lol.

Askmewhats said...

oh no..sorry for the bad experience!

Mac It Pink said...

awww im sorry you received icky stuff. I hate when that happens. I agree that samples should not just consist of 3 of the same thing over and over. how retarded.



Distinque said...

thanks for the review. I'll make sure I won't try this company.

Anonymous said...

aww, that sucks. I guess you can use the scrubs maybe your for feet or something?

Nanzy said...

ouch...sorry you didn't have much luck with the sampler. i personally don't like buying samples coz i have picky nose and i want to know what i'd get when i pay for something LOL

if you want good scrubs, try Mad City Sue (on Etsy) or Cleanse Your Soul, their foaming sugar scrubs are awesome and their scents are fabulous.....
