I'm a little disappointed with this box. All the items are nice and of good quality but I'm not convinced the retail value of the items add up to the cost of the box. Factor in the shipping cost and I'm starting to feel a little ripped-off. I am excited to start the book, though. I will give it another month and see what the next box looks like. Hopefully, I will be wowed like so many other reviewers have been!
Was really looking forward to trying out this subscription box but am glad I decided to just gift myself one month because I was not impressed. I got to pick my own book($9.99) so I am enjoying that, the hot cocoa was okay nothing impressive just your garden variety plain hot chocolate, the snack I received was a bag of Karl’s nuts (usually $1 at the dollar tree) and small package of French Madeleine cookies (which were actually delicious and soft). The book mark isn’t anything special and my book I received was slightly damaged along the edges of the front and back cover as well as some pages. Lastly the candle and soap I received both seem to be of nice quality but are definitely not scents I would have choose for myself (Sandlewood and patchouli) wish I could have put a smell preference. All in all for me it was not worth the $40 I spent and I will more than likely not purchase again.
Thanks for giving us a try. As stated in our listing, we send previously published books (also known as remaindered books). We look over the books for any damage before shipping and I apologize for a damaged book getting sent to you. We have our Best Book Promise and are happy to replace any book a subscriber doesn't like so feel free to contact us about a replacement if you'd like.
Great cute box and quick delivery . Unfortunately soap was melted a bit and book was more of a mystery crime story than fiction. Liked the snacks and introvert sayings !
Hello and thank you for your review of our Surprise box. Please contact us directly and we will replace the melted soap. Also, as we state in our FAQ we are more than happy to offer a replacement book. Get in touch and we will make things right.
Loved everything in this box and was so excited to start reading. Sadly, after getting through the first few pages the book was so bad I couldn’t go on. Amazing quality on all the other products, but was not impressed with the book selection.
Please contact us and we will let you select a replacement book for free.
I got a pair of socks, a few packets of tea, a bar of chocolate and a word-search book (I didn't get the hand salve or seeds of intention cards shown in the pic). Nice idea and the chocolate was good, but the products were not worth the price. Probably would've cost about the same to buy each item separately.
The book was awful, prefer bestseller fiction. Will cancel if next month's book isn't better.
I love the idea but I was a little disappointed when I opened the box.
- 1 used book (ok to me !)
- 1 lavender candle (ok to me)
- 1 bookmark (made from paper from the brand... I would have preferred something nicer)
- 1 soap bar (ok to me)
- 2 SAME nuts bags
- 2 SAME coffee samples
- 2 SAME chocolates cookies
Quality was ok but why put 2 identical items of each ?
I would have preferred more varieties and more goodies such as a nice teaspoon or a tissue napkin, a nice pen etc... It didn't feel like a nice cosy retreat box to me.
It appears one of the items was switched out for two cheap items
I recieved my first box and was very happy with the bath products and treats. The only downside was the book, which was the second in a series.
I’m so sorry you received a book that was the second in a series. That should not have happened. I’ve sent you an email so that we can remedy the situation.
First off, I think this box sounds lovely and would appreciate getting it for myself. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend giving this as a gift, because it does not arrive with any kind of note or information showing the buyer who sent it or why. It caused a lot of confusion for my intended recipient.
Thank you for ordering and I’m sorry your recipient didn’t realize who sent the box. We get a notification when a person buys a box, selects the gift option on Cratejoy, and also leaves a message to go along with the box. In the future we’ll try to keep an eye out for orders where the buyer and recipient are different. Again I’m sorry we didn’t know it was a gift.
I loved the idea of the box, but the quality of the pencils and coloring book were low. The book topic was a little controversial for me. The bath salts were very nice!
I was very excited to get the box after getting a makeup subscription for many years. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new.
I loved the snarky names on the candle and bath salts, however, I HATE the smell.
They remind me of a Victorias Secret scent I hated in high school.
I would have loved some questions as to what scents I liked.
The book is good so far, definitely not something I would have picked up on my own but i'm enjoying it.
Overall, not bad for my first book box. I hate the high shipping charge but I just might try again.
I purchased the full subscription, and while I really enjoyed the bulk of the items, I couldn't justify the cost while living in Canada. I also didn't quite like the bath salts that were given; I just didn't like the scent. The candle, socks, and chocolate peanut butter cups were amazing though. Not sure if I'll subscribe again.
Thanks for the review. You’re right - with the exchange rate and extra shipping it does get expensive. There’s not much we can do about those situations. :(
I'm not quite sure what is happening, but I paid for an Introvert Retreat box over a month ago and have not received one yet. The description said if I ordered at the begining of the month, I would receive a box the following month. I'm sure my box is probably on the way but I'm just getting a little nervous about it. Any help or feed-back would be great! Thank you
Hi Autumn. It takes a little longer for boxes to get to your location but your box is definitely on its way. I sent you an email and I’ll keep an eye on the tracking information until I know you receive it.
