I wanted to do a quick review of the Bubbles and Books Box I received. This was a present from my sisters boyfriend. He did good friends, I told my sister he is a keeper LOL. I think she already feels that way too so it works out.
Alright, so let's go with first impressions. I did do some Instagram stories of me opening it for the first time so if you want to see that kind of thing in the future click here and give me a follow!
So, first off, I like they added the fun tape on the outside of the box. Some bigger boxes have custom boxes but I think this is a smaller company, so I like how they took the effort to add a bit of something on the outside of the box.
When you open the box it has some nice tissue paper and inside things seems carefully packed. I could see the attentions to details put into everything. The overall look when I open the box is so nice! When I started unpacking things though it wasn't as amazing as I originally thought. I thought they were hand wrapped but instead they were put in paper bags with fun designs. That's ok, again, if it's a small company with many boxes they fact they put some wrapping is nice. I think I would suggest they use different ones next time though. These ones were all ripped when I took them out. Maybe using fabric bags? Or more tissue paper would be better? Also, one of the products was not wrapped in plastic and was a bit messy after travel so if they wrapped all the products in plastic I think that would enhance the box.

Now onto the products. They were well made! Again, handmade which I think is even better than mass produced. You know care went into it when it's handmade and more often then not quality ingredients too. The only downside is that I didn't adore the scents. This is most likely a personal preference thing. I am wondering if I will the scents more when I use them? Maybe I don't like them because of how they are in a condensed setting? I will update this when I have tried them to let you know. Lastly let's talk about the book. Now, this was a gift, so it might be why the book is not in the genre I like (as they do have multiple different boxes with different genres). I think for people who like romance books they would love this book choice. As for me, I am not sure I will love it? I plan on giving it a try but we will see how it goes. It is a mass market and seems to be part of a series so that is a bit disappointing. But I think this is because this was the cheaper box? I would hope the bigger boxes have regular paperbacks or maybe two mass markets.
Saying that, I am still super happy with this box and super grateful my sisters boyfriend got it for me.
It is a perfect mix calming products and a romance book which seems light and relaxing. I can see the book being a great addition to a tub. A relaxing and fun read. This being the books and bubble box so I think they achieved their mission, with a fun book and calming bath products!
That's it for this post! Until next time, be kind, shine bright and make the most of your story!
