Sunny's Body Products Villains Box Review

Hello beautiful! Today I'd love to share the latest seasonal box of goodies from Sunny's Body Products with you! The products in this box are inspired by Disney Villains, kin to their Princess Box from this spring. There are twelve hand care/bath & body products included, each themed for a different villain, which I love! I also got the opportunity to try two new products they are bringing to their line, so stay tuned for that at the end of the post.

Sunny's All Over Body Balm is in the scent Off With Her Head (Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland) - "a fresh, soft floral, highlighted with fresh greens very similar to happy heart perfume." A classic, feminine scent that is sure to be a hit with the girly girls! This balm is ideal for use on any type of dry skin, I keep one in my purse at all times.

Sunny's Intensive Cuticle Therapy oil is in the scent Magic Mirror On the Wall (Queen Grimhilde from Snow White) - "notes of crisp apple, pear, and melon and leads to a finish of decadent white chocolate and creamy vanilla." A warm, sweet, autumn appropriate scent that is arguably my favorite in the box! Intense is a great moniker for this product, I use this robust oil before bed and when my cuticles are in need of pampering. The dropper applicator gives the perfect amount of product!

Next is Sunny's Lip Saver in Prick Her Finger (Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty) - "yummy dragonfruit". I've never smelled or eaten a dragonfruit in real life, but if it is like this I bet it tastes amazing! Reminds me of a fruity cocktail flavor. The lip savers are fab, keeps my lips moisturized for hours.

The lighter of the two oils comes in a roller ball applicator, Sunny's Cuticle Oil in Poor Unfortunate Souls (Ursula from The Little Mermaid) - "pineapple, coconut, violet and jasmine and in reaching to her depths you will discover driftwood, sprinkled sugar and white musk." Totally sweet, yet floral, but with a touch of ocean, I am in love with this! This oil is seriously essential, excellent for everyday use.

Sunny's Miracle Balm comes in Fine, Fine, I’m Cool, I’m Fine (Hades from Hercules) - "juicy lime is spiked with wild mint and swirled with ocean lilies, musk, palm trees, and sea moss." I truly detest the scent of lilies, but the mint and salty lime in this almost makes up for it haha. I really enjoy the balm, I use it mostly on my cuticles.

Sunny's Lip Scrub is scented/flavored with Friends On The Other Side (Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog) - "a spooky mix of Cajun Spices." This is INSANE! Mostly cinnamon at first sniff, but a soft heat of the other spices come alive upon application. I may be obsessed with the scent, and I honestly use a lip scrub daily so I'm going to have to find a way to get Sunny to make me more of this!

Sunny's Dry Spot Healer comes in the scent If She Doesn’t Scare You (Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations) - "lily, rose, amber, oakmoss and sandalwood." I'm a bit over florals since we're heading into fall, but this is nice and light. The dry spot healer has literally cured my elbows of rough skin, I use it every night before bed!

Sunny's Triple Thick Body Cream is in the scent Wash The Windows, Scrub The Floors (Lady Tremaine from Cinderella) - "blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla absolute create a scent that is timeless yet modern, simultaneously dark and light." That definition is so right on, dark and light at the same time. This lotion formula is heavier, it delivers a nice dose of hydration that lingers for a while.

Sunny's On the Go Hand Lotion comes in the scent Tick Tock (Captain Hook from Peter Pan) - "resinous bay leaves infused in the mellow woody smell of rum that has been aged and matured for months in wooden kegs." If you can imagine what a clean pirate smells like, this has got to be it! On the masculine end, but a definite winner for me. The formula of this lotion sinks in easily and is perfect for use on the go (hence the name haha).

The scent for Sunny's Sugar Hand Scrub is called Mother Knows Best (Mother Gothel from Tangled) - "a blend of buttery vanilla and sweet green grasses." One of my favorites in the box, who knew those scents went together so well?? Rich and slightly foodie but also fresh and light. I love the scrub, full of great oils and just scrubby enough to treat your hands to nice exfoliation without being too rough.

Sunny's Bath Whip comes in I Killed Mufasa! (Scar from The Lion King) -"Top – Ginger and Juniper Berries, Middle – Spruce, Cardamom and Osmanthus, Base – Vetiver, Tonka and Amber." This is a more complex scent that I was prepared not to like but I actually quite enjoy it. It's light and slightly masculine, very clean. The bath whip is lovely to use, gives a nice lather and leaves your skin scented for a long time.

Sunny's Hand Butter is scented with Patience Iago, Patience (Jafar from Aladdin) - "a woody, amber-moss and spice with a hint of sandalwood." Another unisex/masculine scent, this one is just ok for me, not being a big fan of amber or sandalwood. This is the most dense lotion Sunny has, almost firm and paste like, but slippery if that makes sense. I love using the butters on my feet and hands before bed, letting them sink in all night feels so luxe!

Now for the new products, these are not included in the box, but I wanted to share my take on them as they're going to be available in her shop soon. I got to try the new Jelly Soap in the permanent scent Pomelo Sage (Sunny's fav scent!). It's a squishy jello-like soap that works very similarly to regular soap, you can either use it as one chunk and just rub it on your skin or tear bits off and squish them up in your hands with running water. I like that it doesn't leave my skin super dry either, which happens with most soaps for me.

The other new type of product is the Fizzy Shots, which I got to try in the permanent scent Snow Taffy (which smells amazing). It's like a deconstructed half size bath bomb, in it's almost powdered form. This is the perfect size for mani bombs, which are all the rage right now, but I don't soak my hands/fingers in water because it affects my fingernails negatively, but I can see using this for pedicures or baths!

My friends Very Emily and Paulina's Passions have posted their reviews of this box as well and I know we all have very different noses, so you might check them out to get other perspectives. (They also have photos of the jelly soap and fizzy shot, which I realized I didn't take just now as I'm writing/editing this post, ugh!) Edit: Jen the Polishaholic just posted her review too!

This box will be available for purchase on the Sunny's Body Products website on Friday, September 30th for $50 including shipping for the US, and for $60 including shipping for international customers. This is a limited edition set so when it sells out it will not be restocked. Let me know what you think about this box and if you are interested in any of the scents!
