This is my second month with The Butter Box from My Butter Bar. What is My Butter Bar? It is a company started by 2 best friends who wanted great smelling bath and body products that weren’t loaded down with chemicals. Their logo is ” ‘Good Enough to Eat’ Products-Period!” They are 100% natural, including the fragrance oils, colorants and preservation methods. They do not use any chemicals or chemically-altered natural ingredients.
They also have a monthly subscription service, called The Butter Box. You can choose either from
- The Butter Box Mini – 5 “shots” sized mini products for $19.95 monthly or $50.00 for 3 months
- The Butter Box – 3 to 4 full sized products (valued at $40.00 or more) for $29.95 monthly or $80.00 for 3 months
I signed up for the regular box and I really enjoyed my first box with them, so let’s see what this month holds! My box did have minor leakage again, so that is why the informational card is spotty. This month’s theme is “Summer Ready”
Coco-Nutz Solid Lotion Push Pop Okay, now I am humming that Van Halen song…haha This is GREAT. I really love solid lotions as they are so portable and also very easy to use. This is in a push-up pop applicator and it is a very nourishing lotion, that I can easily put on the heels of my feet, my elbows and anywhere else I have rough spots. My Butter Bar sells this in a variety of scents, including watermelon, limeade and peppermint, and I received Coco-Nutz, which is a basic shea butter scent, with a hint of coconut. I was very happy to see this did not melt in the really warm weather and the long time it took to get my box to me. This is due to the fact that the first ingredient is beeswax, and that keeps this pretty solid. Full Size 4 oz Value $10.00
Description: The Butter Bar’s version of a Classic Solid Lotion Bar. Filled with Beeswax, Shea Butter and Virgin Coconut Oil, and topped with Natural, Vegan Fragrance Oil. Stay Moisturized on the go!
Ingredients: Beeswax, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Natural Vegan Fragrance Oil cosDNA.com analysis
Warmmm Vanilla Lavish Lotion I am so HAPPY to have a My Butter Bar lotion! I really loved their R$ch Butter, but I was looking for a lotion, not a cream, for the summer time. Just like their rich butter cream, this is lotion is very rich but is easy to apply. My legs have such a lovely sheen to them when I use this lotion. I love that this has aloe vera in it, as aloe is really a great moisturizer and also helps heal any wounds. My Butter Bar does not have this exact formula yet on their website ~ it looks like they have an Original Lavish Lotion, that has different ingredients. This is supposed to be a vanilla scent, but I just smell the shea butter. I am okay with that, as the rich silkiness of this lotion really is fantastic. Full Size 8 oz Value $13.00
Description: The Sweetest Lotions crafted from our Famous Soft Fair-Trade Shea Butter, along with Cottonseed and Aloe to leave your skin soft,and shimmering in the sun!!
Ingredients: water, cottonseed oil, aloe vera whole leaf juice, natural emulsifying wax, vegetable stearic acid, vegetable glycerin, silver dihydrogen citrate, citric acid, potassium sorbate, natural flavor/fragrance oil cosDNA.com analysis
WarMmm Vanilla Juicy Soap Bar This glycerine soap contains not only honey, but coconut oil, almond oil and shea butter. It has a light warm scent of vanilla and is not overpowering. I still need to try this out, but my experience with My Butter Bar soaps is that they aren’t very soapy ~ not a lot of lather ~ but they do clean very nicely and aren’t harsh on my skin. Full Size 3.5 oz Value $6.00
Description: A 3.5 oz. bar of all-natural, oil-infused soap that will leave you clean and moisturized! Shea butter and Natural Vanilla fragrance oil adds to the juiciness and leaves you smelling irresistible!

Sugar Cookie Lip Scrubz Yeah, a lip scrub! I always enjoy these little treats for my lips. It is so important to exfoliate your lips, as it will remove dead skin, smooth and moisturize. If you like to wear matte lipsticks or bright vibrant lipsticks, exfoliating is a MUST. This does smell like a lovely sugar cookie and it has the right amount of solid and oil ~ not too dry and not too greasy. This also has vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant and helps heal your skin. This is not yet in their store, but is coming soon. Full Size $7.00
How To Use: Massage onto lips in a circular motion. Remove with a tissue or rinse.
Ingredients: Vegan Sugar, Organic Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E Oil), Natural Vegan Fragrance Oil cosDNA.com analysis
Brown Sugar With Honey Acne-Fighting Facial Scrub This is, by far, my favorite product in the box this month! I love exfoliating products and this scrub is really fantastic. I was really stupid ~ I didn’t read the informational card all the way thru and I emailed My Butter Box to ask if this is supposed to be rock hard. Kimberly-Chloe was so patient with me and explained how to use it, even though I had the instructions already! DUH. The raw honey does make it hard, along with the brown sugar, which will absorb the oils. Just warm it up by running warm water over the closed jar and it will become soft. My Butter Box explained that raw honey has a similar texture to softened beeswax, so it will not become runny, but instead, “sticky”. This will enable the scrub to adhere to your face, so you can leave it on for a few minutes before massaging it in to exfoliate. Honey is a fantastic ingredient and this product will help reduce blemishes and heal current acne and rashes, as it is an anti-bacterial and will also lock in moisture. It also smells amazing ~ the almond oil is really soothing and I love the scent of almonds and sugar.
This scrub is very gentle as it is made with sugar, but is very effective in exfoliating, while moisturizing and helping heal blemishes. This only has four ingredients, as should be gentle enough for sensitive skin types. This is a scrub I will purchase once I finish this one. Full Size 4 oz Value $15.00
Description: This Almond scented brown sugar scrub is mildly exfoliating and highly anti-bacterial skin conditioner. While it is busy fighting bacteria on skin’s surface with raw honey, brown sugar exfoliates gently to make sure skin isn’t irritated, but left smooth and soft with the help of sweet almond oil.
How To Use: Use once or twice a day : Take a small dollop (using a clean spatula or spoon preferably) and apply to the face in small circular movements, then simply rinse away. Or…Use warmed for 10 sec in the microwave for a deep tissue face massage you’ll never forget! (remove amount to be warmed and place on microwave safe plate before warming in Microwave**) **Warning: Check product temperature before applying to your face!
Ingredients: Vegan Sucrose (Brown Sugar),Prunus Dulcis (Almond Oil), Organic Raw Honey, Natural Vegan Almond Fragrance Oil cosDNA.com analysis
Just like last month, I really enjoyed The Butter Box this month! It looks like they do listen to customer feedback, as I had suggested a lotion and a solid bar lotion, and they have delivered that! My favorite product has to be the honey sugar scrub ~ I really love the scent and how it gently exfoliates. I didn’t really smell strong scents in their lotion and soap products ~ maybe they are supposed to be very lightly scented. I did have some minor leakage from a product (not sure which one), but My Butter Box has said that will be sealing their products going forward. There were some shipping issues this month, but the owners are very responsive and I really appreciate that. The monthly box is $29.95 and I received a value of $51.00! Great deal!
I am really pleased with this month’s offerings from My Butter Box. I cannot wait to see July’s, as it looks like it is filled with summery tropical fruit scents! The next 3 months are supposed to be of high value, so I am really excited to see what The Butter Box will contain :) Do you want to try The Butter Box? I have an exclusive code for first time users only ~ Use BFFM and get the first box for only $5.95
