REALLY love this box!!! Lots of fun self-care goodies that are TOTALLY usable. Each month is very different, which I LOVE! You don't get the same fandoms over and over like some boxes! They use some fandoms you don't see often and have introduced me to lots. I also get books I wouldn't pick up on my own which opens me to new genres and authors! Some months you get mostly self-care items and some months you get more cool things like wine glasses or book lights. My favorite items are the bath and shower goodies and the candles because you can always find a use for those! They put a lot of time and effort into the boxes with things wrapped and customized to fit the themes! VERY sweet customer service too and I LOVE the community! I'm subscribing to both the YA and Adult Boxes because I just can't choose!!!
I got the March YA box, themed bloom where you are planted. First the good, the book was good. I would have never heard about it otherwise probably. It wasn't spectacular but it wasn't horrible and I read the whole thing, which is saying something for a subscription service. The bookmark was also just okay. I like the idea of the elastic bookmark, but the flower looks cheap. I also like magnetic bookmarks better. I am mildly crafty and it looks like something I made. Everything else, the soap, the bathbomb (maybe it was a shower deal) and the bath salts were very underwhelming. The bath salts had like some pieces of flowers in it and they made my bathwater look dirty (I had to clean my tub afterwards even though I just cleaned it). The soap left my skin really dry and I don't like the smell. I'm not even sure about the bathbomb/shower steamer thing. It didn't smell like anything. Oh yeah there was horrible smelling perfume in the box too. I was really excited because of reviews and then really disappointed. It's an okay box and since the book was the best part, I'll just look for unboxing videos and get the book at the library.
I have been inspired to read more by ordering this book box. I feel like I can't wait for the next one! I love the different items that come in the box too - some I may have never tried had I not received this "gift" to myself! I ordered Adult box and plan on continuing with this. I also find it fun to have a book chosen for me mainly because I never know what to read so I don't have to decide. Thank you girls for creating this experience!! ~Ruthy~
