I did the 3 month subscription and received October, November, and December 2018 boxes. Overall I was not impressed. I felt as though the items were a bit cheap and not well thought out. The books were very thin as well. I just didn't see my money's worth and I felt as though not much thought went into the boxes. Maybe this is for you? It just wasn't for me. I am addicted to trying new boxes and I am sad to say this one was removed from my subscription list.
Abit underwhelmed buy this whole box
I really wanted to like this, but no such luck. The bag of brownie brittle had a hole in the bottom, so when I lifted it out of the box, crumbs went everywhere. Beige isn’t a color I wear and there are snags in the scarf, nor will I wear a cutesy introvert pin. I’m hoping that at least the foot mask and book will be enjoyable.
Thank you for giving us a try. Please contact us through our Cratejoy listing and we will be happy to send replacements for the damaged items.
I purchased a 3 month subscription as a birthday gift. While it's a great idea, the execution is off for the following reasons:
- Selection of Books is Not Great: even though there is the option to choose your book, the options are pretty slim. The books all seem to be older and from a bargain bin of leftover books. A lot of romance but not much else
- Special Gifts Aren't So Special: I liked the idea of some additional items to add to the experience. However, my recipient gave feedback that all 3 boxes had the exact same extra gifts and it was a disappointment. For instance she received 3 bottles of bath salts, all the same scent, which just took away from the idea of "curation" and the surprise.
While the team at Introverts is very flexible, lovely to deal with and quick to respond there are opportunities to improve the final product. There are competing boxes that have better books and tailor the box to match the theme of the book, which to me is the true definition of curation and an actual reading experience.
I was really excited about this box but when I received it, I was so sad. I ordered the most expensive box and received a paperback book (which looks decent), a few packets of some cappuccino mix, a single portion of chocolate dipped maple brittle, some generic looking bath salts, a small (nice smelling) candle, some broken earrings, and the smallest cheapest wind chimes that were so tangled up, I’ll never be able to use them. I love the concept of this box but the products need to be higher quality. I did receive the box very quickly after ordering and received tracking info promptly. This box has potential and I trust this company can still make it work, if they can increase the quality of their products.
I really appreciate your feedback, especially regarding the gift part of this box. I had decided that starting May 5th and on, the gift would be a bath and body product made either by my company or another women-owned business. I had made that decision partly because it can be hard to find gifts that will satisfy everyone but I hope that by focusing more on a specific type of gift, my customers will have more of an idea of what they're getting. I hope you have received the replacement earings, I appreciate you letting me know right away that there were issues with the items in your box!
I hope you're staying healthy and safe during this time! ❤️
I have tried many monthly box subscriptions and unfortunately, this one is just not worth the cost. I love the idea and the types of products in the box, however for $40 the products are not worth it. I subscribed for 3 months and have received 2 boxes so far. Both books were thin paperback books published several years ago and worth less than $10 each (this months book is available for less than $5!). This months book also has horrible ratings. :( I am incredibly disappointed. At $40/month the book should at least be a newly published book.
Thank you for the review. As stated here and on our website, if you don’t like a book we will replace it free of charge. We also give you the option to choose a book each month. We’d be happy to replace the two books you didn’t like - please email us or contact us here through Cratejoy and we’ll help you get two books you’d like better.
