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.
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 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.
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.
