The box was fantastic. The book looks interesting & the bath products will be used shortly. Definitely a good purchase.
I got this subscription as a gift for my daughter. She and her boyfriend both love it and get excited when their box get there. My daughter also says that the packaging is beautiful, and the staff she gets in touch with for rewards is “super nice”.
So far I love this subscription. I am not into baths, I usually shower, but my daughter's love bath bombs, so this is why I got the subscription so my daughters benefit from it as well as I do. They use the bath products and I can relax with a nice romance book.
Thanks so much for the feedback! What a great idea to get this box and share with your bath-loving daughters! I've considered creating a Tween/Young Adult genre because it seems there are several young girls getting into their mom's Bubbles&Books supplies each month :) We've included shower steamers once or twice - let us know if you think of any other "shower-specific" items we could include to make your box fit your lifestyle better.
I really loved the bath bomb that was in this months box. The size was perfect as was the smell. However, I didnt care for the smell of the goat soap. The fragrance is strong when not used but when put on the body you cant really spell the soap. The book wasn't as bad boy Romance as I originally thought. This book reminds me of a normal harlequin romance book. A little disappointing there. Everything else I enjoyed.
When I first heard about this subscription, I knew it would be the one for me. I enjoy reading and nice bubble bath after the crazy days I usually have. I had a small shipping issue and they immediately fixed it! I was beyond impressed with how good they were at customer service. If you're looking for a little unwind and book subscription this is the one for you!
I'm so disappointed in my subscription. The book they sent was the last book in a 16-book series. Maybe the series is good, but I have to purchase and read 15 more books to catch up! The book itself is an Avon mass market paperback and was marked as a remainder. Generously, I'd put the value at $3. I'd value the bath things they added at $9.
This was my first box. Pleasantly surprised. 😁
Now I may be a tad biased here since I love everything books. I love this subscription. The box I ordered was a paranormal one so I had no idea what book I was going to get. It turns out it wasn't one I would pick for myself which is part of the fun of subscription boxes after all. I'm in it for the surprise and to try new things and get outside of my comfort zone. My box came with bath salts which I'm glad for. After all what is a bath without bath salts? I also got a small piece of chocolate which normally I would stuff in my mouth right away but I just started a new lifestyle that includes eating healthy so a friend of mine will be getting a treat today! Included was also this adorable little notebook upcycled from old library cards. It's so cute and of course I can never have enough notepads, notebooks or any random collection of papers. After all, readers do tend to have many many interesting thoughts. Over all this subscription is not as costly as some and that in and of itself makes it very attractive. I am excited to read this strange new book and a full review of that will be available on Goodreads.
After receiving a couple of boxes, the books themselves (including the digital freebies) are pretty severely lacking in diversity. It kind of bummed me out this month to open a box with two books about straight white couples in the rural US. Romance is so much richer than this.
Would love to see some murder mystery in the box 📦
Thanks for your feedback. Just wanted to let you know we've started a new Mystery & Thrillers genre :)
The book I received was a nice thick book and fit the bad boy kind of box.
I was a little disappointed with the stuff that was sent with it. All in all not bad
Especially when you don't know what books to buy, this way i get a book every month.
But i could make it for less
I always look forward to receiving this box. Plenty of amazing bath products from small businesses and books are great. It’s hard to find a book subscription for romance. This one never fails!!
Received my first box and first thing I would say is that I wish the card that is provided had a description of the products in the box. My box came with a random small piece of soap attached to a bath salt container. The container looks like a spice bottle you get from the grocery store. Also all the items looks small and like samples. Definitely not worth $40 and I didn't get $40 worth. The book alone is on $8. So I think they can try a little harder and put a little more products or bigger products into the boxes because I kinda feel scammed. I'll continue for another month but after that if the next month isn up to par I'll be canceling.
Oh no! First, thank you for your feedback. Second, I am sorry you are disappointed in the box! We try to source products that fit a different theme each month, are different than what you would get at the store, and add a "fun factor" to your bath and relaxation time. When you visit the subscriber-only page (listed on your Staycation card included in the box) you'll see an inventory of items in your box. That cute little lime salt attached to your bath salts? It's to fit the "staycation" theme - so you have a Margarita Lost Shaker of Salt (margarita bath salts) with a mini lime soap.
While we can't provide items that are bulk-sized in our subscriber boxes, you'll find most...
The bath bomb and soap were FULL of dyes and who knows what other harmful stuff. The book was a mediocre re-release from 2013. I expected much more and didn't get it. The theme didn't even fit as I expected. If I order a Mystic box, why am I getting wedding themed products?
Save your money. Pick up some Epsom salts and a book from the library.
I have now been charged for 2 boxes even though they haven’t even sent the 1st. I emailed the seller today and will update once I hear back. So far I have nothing!
This box has one major flaw. I've been subscribed for 3 months, and all books (4 of them) I received were sequels from long-standing series. Series where you either have to read 10+ books to catch up to the book they send you, or you already own it because you've been following them.
I think it is common knowledge that including books other than 1st books of the series or stand-alone novels in book boxes is unacceptable.
Also, chances are one or two products will spill over the box during shipping, if you live overseas.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Kei! We do actually try to include stand-alone or book 1 in a series for every genre, but because we also attempt to include only new releases within the last 60-90 days - there are times when we just don't have a book 1 or stand-alone available from the four publishers we order our books from. We've recently reached out to new authors to try and secure their first-ever books to see how they are received by our subscribers, but the challenge is getting them into the right price point to deliver our boxes without increasing the price for subscribers. As for the shipping... so frustrating. We've been wrapping delicate items in bubble wrap or thick paper,...
The book was good, but all of the bath products were not. The bath bombs fell apart in the box and the packing looked very cheap. I’ll try one more box, but would likely cancel based on the one I received.
I LOVE the bath items in evety box, the books however are a different story. I'm getting very tired of all the cowboy or western romances. Please bring back the darker romanes, the very first box I received had a dark romance and every book since then has been either a "sweet" or "cowboy" romance. This is main reason why I have not renewed my subscription.
This company has great customer service and great bath products but flopped with the book. I ordered the bad boy box and got a fun light sexy read. I guess that’s not my definition of a bad boy romance. I won’t go into details to spoil it for everyone else. If you want a light fluffy read with some great soap, this is for you.
Who doesn't love a great book along with a great bath! You receive today's reading along with today's "bubbly relaxation"! WIN WIN for everybody!!
The book was ok but not very long and I didn't like the scent of the soap I got it made me sick. This box was just not worth it.
Very good quality book, the hand made soap smells amazing and I can actually see rose petals in it. The bath bomb smelled like a lemon drop and both my kids were fighting over it. I also had to fight my daughter so that I could keep the amazing mermaid metal book mark. Very pleased with all the products and loved the little surprise gift also included
