Q: What's in a surprise boxAsked by Rachel K., April 2019
We call it the Ready to Ship Essentials Box now. It includes items from past boxes - but it's quite similar to the subscription box: a book written by a female author, one of our exclusive book marks and 5 or 6 additional items. It's a great way to get a box right away!
Q: I know it says fiction, but can the book be tailored to our preferences?Asked by Valerie P., August 2019
Yes you may choose a genre for your novel. :)
Q: Can we get over the “introverts like books and extraverts are hyper chatterboxes” narrative? Can you explain the thought process of naming this service?Asked by Madison, July 2020
Q: Do you guys ship to Puerto Rico? Asked by Alneris M., June 2020
Yes we do.
Obsessed!!! I absolutely LOVE my box! With everything going on in the world this was just what I needed in my life!
I just received mine today. What do we do if there was some slight damage to the box??
The blue and white box itself usually takes some small amount of damage from the shipping process - as do all shipping boxes. If any of the items inside the box are damaged, just send us a picture and we'll see about replacing them. Otherwise, in the future, if you want an undamaged blue cat box, you could email us and request a bubble wrap and poly mailer - that would protect the box as well.
This box was so thoughtful! Receiving it in the mail (very fast shipping and great packaging) was such a treat. The items are all high-quality and the candle, soap, and body scrub I received smell amazing. Thank you for the treat!
I love all the items inside! The candle smells so nice- and the treats are great! The salts are much needed:) I recommend this box and am looking forward to future boxes!
I just got my first box and i love it! I got the read, relax and recharge box. I’m so excited to try out my bath salts and soap! Smells wonderful!
I ordered one box full box to try out, not knowing what to expect. It’s so fantastic!!! I ordered the mystery/thriller genre. Like others have posted, the book wasn’t one I would pick for myself. I’m usually reading multiple books at the same time, and this book is the one I’m always thinking about and reaching for when I have a spare minute! The candle is top notch in quality, scent, and throw. I have not tried the bath salt yet, but I’m really looking forward to it. The other goodies were such a nice treat. That fabulous book, and the candle sealed the deal for me to remain subscribed despite the high shipping cost. This is a box I really look forward to, and actually use all of the products. My two requirements for a keeper. Thank you, Introverts Retreat, for being a bright spot in my days.
I liked this box a lot, but did not really like the book included. I won't be subscribing monthly due to the book mainly. I think if I were to have a choice of several books at least, or more genres to choose from, it would go a long way towards a more personalized box that I could like. But such as it is, I'm not willing to pay for books that I have to figure out how to get rid of.
Otherwise, shipping was very fast, and everything else in the box was awesome!
Thank you for the review! We have a policy that if you don’t like the book we will send a replacement (your choice of title) free of charge. Just email us or contact us through this site and tell us which book you received and why you didn’t like it and we’ll help you out from there!
Utterly in love! Received a darling, and completely intriguing book, lotion, adorable socks, and a very pretty bookmark! I love it!
I am very impressed with introverts retreats box subscription. I gifted it to my mother-in-law who has a big reader and although I did have an issue with the genre of book that was delivered to my mother-in-law this was fixed immediately and three new books were sent. I was in thriller as the genre because my mother-in-law likes to read mystery novels however the book she received or supernatural and fantasy in nature. It’s true that categories can be misunderstood and genres have a wide range of interpretation but what impresses me most about this box company is their customer service! Fantastic!
Absolutely loved my first box! It had a wonderful mix of things that are perfect to relax and unwind. I will definitely be continuing this subscription. The chocolates I got were a bit melted but that’s sometimes the problem with living in Florida. I definitely recommend this one!
