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.
Hello Jennie! We wanted to start off by saying that we really value feedback and take it to heart when planning for the future. March's YA box was unique from what we've done before - with more scents and bath/shower products than usual. We wanted to give our valued subscribers a little "pick-me-up" after a long winter for our first Spring Equinox Box; and we are very sorry that you feel we didn't deliver on that. Since we are seasonally inspired, we tried to stick to more "springy" scents, and while we personally loved them, we realize that such things are subjective! Every month we try to change it up, and while we are sad you didn't love this box, we will definitely take your thoughts into consideration going forward. Also - we are totally planning magnetic bookmarks for the future! We love them too and try to switch it up from your standard bookmark ❤ We've also sent you an e-mail regarding this and hope we can make things right. Our e-mail is ALWAYS open for feedback! We are so happy you liked the book - we thought it was a good one :) Keep reading, friend! -Melanie & Sarah
