I have been compensated for this review in the form of a Premium Mystic Box. All of my opinions are my own and are not influenced by outside sources.
OMG YOU GUYSSSSS!!!
Sorry, do I seem excited? Maybe it’s because I am? Nah, couldn’t be the reason. Derp.
So the thing about me is I LOVE reading. I had just finished a 28 book series that I was working on for about four months. I read a lot and I read fast. What I WANT to do is read in the tub but I tend to use my iPad for reading and I have a massive fear that I’ll drop it in because I know myself too well. Yesterday I tripped into a door, over a rug, and landed on a chair. I’m FOR SURE going to drop an iPad.
So when I was approached to do a review about a subscription box that involves both reading AND baths I was like “Hell yes please and thank you!” I was asked what genre I wanted and I picked fantasy because I’ve been on a supernatural kick lately. I got two books from New York Times Bestselling Authors, Lynsay Sands and Barbara J. Hancock. I also received enough bath products to last AT LEAST two weeks, I figure since I was sent the premium box with two books it gave me a week of bath and reading to knock out each book (which is paperback by the way so I don’t drop it in the tub.)
I got bombs and cubes and soaps along with a sun ripened peach candle to light for additional scent and ambiance. I was even excited to receive a bag full of shower bombs to put in the corner to make my shower extra awesome. Very handy since I’ve been deep conditioning a lot lately so I’m in there FOREVER.
The bath experience itself doesn’t even need much description. You’ve all taken baths (I hope) and for the love of all that is holy please tell me you’ve read a book. If you haven’t I implore you to try it. They’re ALWAYS better than the movie. Just picture yourself away from the world surrounded by scents and bubbles with a candle burning and a good book in your hand. Sound delightful? IT IS.
Here is the thing I’ve learned about subscription boxes. While yes, you could go to the store and buy these items, it’s SO MUCH FUN to receive a package in the mail each month that is a total surprise. You tend to lose track of time as the days go by and things might frustrate you and then all of the sudden you open your door and there is a package waiting for you with products that call to you to forget the world and dive into a world of fantasy and relaxation. I’m a huge fan of all subscription boxes, I feel it’s like Christmas each month and they brighten my day every time one arrives.
I received a Premium Mystic Box (Paranormal Romance). Premium boxes contain 2 books each, and 5-7 bath and body items. The subscription for that is $44.95 a month +$3 shipping (that’s because they cover the rest of the $10-15 actual shipping costs).
Standard Boxes contain 1 book and 3-5 bath and body items and are $27.99 a month + $3 shipping (again, because they cover the rest of the $8-10 shipping costs.)
With Standard and Premium Boxes you can choose the genre of your choice to ensure you get books you’ll love: Contemporary, Romance, Paranormal Romance, Historical Romance, Mystery and Thrillers. You can change book genres any time you want.
Subscription options are month-to-month, and can be cancelled any time or you can get a 6 month pre-paid or 12 month pre-paid subscription to save some money. You can delay subscription renewals if you don’t want a box for a month or two and you can pause a subscription and come back later, it’s very flexible.
You can get started today with a discount code so you can get 25% off your first box at BubblesandBooks.com : JULIE25
It would be the perfect gift for yourself but I HIGHLY suggest you menfolk reading this to consider trying it out for Mother’s Day. Make sure you order it early enough so the package arrives on or before that date. It could work for any occasion though – birthdays, anniversaries, a just because I love you, or sorry I messed up you were totally right let me grovel until you forgive me subscription or it could be for yourself, given that there are so many genres and you like the occasional bath (don’t lie) it could work for anybody.

So again I want to say that there is nothing like a subscription box. I subscribe to a few and being a stay at home mom who homeschools her kids and can find the mundane in things it’s just wonderful every time someone comes in with a package I forgot was coming and it’s filled with goodies just for me to make my life better. Although I will say my hubs loves the occasional bath and I had him try this and he almost put a glitter bomb in and he had a board meeting the next day. While absolutely hilarious to me it would have been a nightmare for him so read the product description before trying.
I hope you’ll consider trying this product out for yourself. Just use the code JULIE25 for 25% off to see what you think of it and let me know either in the comments or on my Facebook page! Love y’all!
