This was my first box. I liked the contents, but unfortunately the robe is WAY too small. Hearing that it shrinks after washing makes me wonder if it would fit an average size woman, at all. Super disappointed in the sizing on this.

Did anyone else find the rose gold bracelet more sized for a toddler? I have small wrists and can usually fit children’s sized bracelets and there was no way this was going on my wrist. I was afraid I would break it if I tried to pull it open. This was the one item I was excited about. Everything else will be gifted besides the reusable cotton rounds. After reading replies here I’m not taking a chance on the robe shrinking up.

Gahhh! Just got my box (grey robe, tea tumbler, basil, serum, cutting board) and am so UNTHRILLED (IDK if thats a word but it is today). The robe…ohh the robe. I was excited, I don’t have a robe! I like the color too! I got it, I washed in cold and laid flat to dry….It didn’t shrink, but it’s super rough and weirdly misshapen. Also, one of the belt loops was ripped, so I have to do manual labor after paying almost $60. I emailed them, and I know from this thread that they will send me a new one, but honestly, I don’t want another rough oddly shaped robe. (Also, sidenote, it took FOREVER to dry!) Tumbler is cute, have a bajillion serums so I can’t get too excited about that, honestly I think I’m most excited about the basil I’m going to grow and make pesto with. 96 batches and I’ve made my money back sooo…yeah….jokes on you Causebox!

I got the face scrub in my box (I’m a quarterly subscriber, so I don’t get to customize) and I’m so glad I did! It smells amazing, feels wonderful on my face, and left my skin so smooth and soft! I also washed the robe I received, but unlike most folks here I didn’t experience any shrinkage or loose threads – I machine washed on the delicate cycle on cold and then hung the robe up to dry. So happy I got the basil plant, I was really hoping for that instead of the makeup removers.

I was missing the towels I ordered as an annual and the glass tumbler was damaged with many broken glass pieces. I emailed support and still waiting for a response, I’m on day 3. Its so upsetting. I hope they send the replacements or just take the whole box back and refund my money. I rather have the goods and I’m not taking a partial credit if they offer. If they don’t I’m going fight to be made whole and getting what I ordered. What was the whole point of even getting the box if it doesn’t have the stuff I only wanted in the first place. I sometimes find big corporate assume the consumer don’t know the law and regulations. It just takes a lot of time but you do it yourself vs the lawyer.

It’s the principal of the matter and not the cost at this point. And if they play games then we will need to do all steps which normally people stop at the lawyer part and don’t do the next steps after the lawyer piece is completed. Its not like they can’t claim for damages from fedex in the first place if they bought insurance.

Rose, the same thing happened to me with the summer box. Fed Ex said they delivered and they didn’t. We had proof on our porch camera that no one delivered at the time they said they did and we were home when they said they delivered. It was a mess but Causebox did replace the box thankfully because it was a phenomenal box!

“ As they are handmade, it sometimes requires a tad bit of care. To get your towels back to its normal length and shape, you can get your towels damp, and then stretch it out onto a beach towel and roll it up. This will allow the fabric to relax and continue to stretch inside the towel very gently. About 20- 30 minutes unwrap the towel and allow to air dry. Once the towel has dried you can iron it out a bit to flatten the waffle knit.

For future care, as the Waffle Towel Set is handmade from 100% cotton, so for optimal preservation and minimal shrinkage, we recommend following the instructions listed below to handle with extra care. Depending on the washer and dryer used, the cycle can be a bit stronger and hotter, so the below instructions are best.

Hand or machine wash your Waffle Bathrobe or Towel Set in cold water (Bonus: washing in cold water is an easy way to save energy and prevent carbon pollution!), and lay flat to air dry. While waffle weave will naturally contract, it should typically stretch back out to its original size in time. To maintain the fabric exactly as-is, you can use warm iron as needed.“

Hope that helps!

This is my first box and I will definitely use all the items. I really ordered for the robe but was pleasantly surprised that I loved all the items I chose; robe, tease and rounds. It was certainly a good value but, as most have you have said, I wanted more of a wow factor.

HO-LY-COW!! My robe had a funny smell to it so I decided to wash it. Tag says wash in warm and tumble dry medium. It’s 100% cotton so instead I washed it on cold and dried it on low. I can’t even believe how much this shrunk, I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s ridiculous, seriously about 1/3 the size it was. I can’t even pull it closed around me now. The length is a good 8-10 inches shorter, sleeves a good 4-5 inches shorter. Unbelievable! My lint screen is full of short little mint strings. Boo Causebox!

***UPDATE***
So as I said above I am very disappointed in this robe. I emailed Causebox Sunday afternoon expressing my displeasure, and today (Monday) I received a reply back. They are sending me a new robe and they also offered some tips on possibly restoring the other one as well as tips on washing the new one. (UM, definitely gonna wash in ice-cold water by hand and lay flat to dry.) Anyway, while this solution doesn’t make the quality of the product any better, it does speak highly of Causebox and their customer service. This is the first complaint I’ve ever had with them and they handled it wonderfully.

Got this box (2nd year as a Causebox subscriber). Have to say I’m mostly happy. Really like the tea bottle – nice quality, imo. Plan to keep some items as hostess gifts. I chose the towels over the robe as I already have a nice robe. The towels aren’t great. I washed them and because of the light waffle weave they immediately shrank about 30%. Definitely NOT worth $90. Maybe the robe is better and doesn’t shrink as much, but this is the first time I’ve received such a disappointing item. I canceled FFF and switched to Causebox because I was tired of receiving increasing amounts of mediocre quality stuff (if you’ve had FFF, you know what I’m talking about). Hoping the Winter Causebox is better.

Got an E mail from Causebox yesterday about proper care:

https://faq.causebox.com/hc/en-us/articles/360053691854-FALL-20-How-should-I-wash-and-care-for-the-Waffle-Knit-Bathrobe-and-Towel-Set-),?utm_source=email&utm_medium=fa20&utm_campaign=bathencare

The Bathen Waffle Knit Bathrobe and Towel Set are both handwoven and made from 100% cotton. Due to this, they should be handled with care.

For optimal preservation and maximum shrinkage prevention:

Hand or machine wash your Waffle Bathrobe or Towels in cold water on delicate/gentle cycle, and lay flat or hang to air dry. While waffle weave will naturally contract, as can be expected as it makes the material absorbent, it should also stretch back out to its original size in time. If a more flattened weave is desired, you can use a warm iron as needed.

Notice any unwanted shrinkage?

While waffle weave fabric will naturally contract, we recommend following the instructions below to help return your handmade pieces to their original size:

Dampen your item, stretch it out onto a larger towel, and roll it up — this will allow the tightened waffle fabric to relax.
After about 20-30 minutes, unwrap the item and lay flat or hang to air dry. This should bring the length back!
Once it has dried, you can iron it out a bit to further flatten the waffle knit.

Yeah…got this email too. It really should say to ignore the washing instructions on the tag that is on the robe too. Tag says wash in warm with like colors and tumble dry medium. I washed it in cold and dried it on low and ended up with a robe half the size it was before washing. There’s no restoring it to its original size no matter how much stretching and ironing I do.

I do have to say Causebox customer service was fantastic, addressed my complaint and made it right.

I received this email also. Would have been better if they had included this info with the item in the box. Better yet, it could have been in with the notes about all the products. Perhaps they didn’t know/weren’t informed when they made the deal with Bathen to include these products.

Question for those that have an annual subscription. On your dashboard does it show boxes that were previously shipped. My dashboard only shows awaiting shipment for my 2nd box. The tracking number on my first box disappeared and there is no indication that I ever received my first box. Does delivered items disappear off the dashboard when the new season boxes start shipping. What would show if you were skipping a box. I’m just curious how one would track boxes gotten if there is no indication especially if you plan on skipping a box or overlap due to delays (some didn’t get spring boxes while summer boxes were shipping).

Once the new box goes into “awaiting shipment” mode the previous info disappears. If you skip a box your last shipment details remain on your subscriptions and orders page until your next shipment. Same for market orders. The last time I placed a market order was in July and it is still showing tracking info.

Got my Fall Causebox delivered yesterday (yes on a Sunday even).

I love, love, love everything in my box.

The robe turned out to be of better quality than I expected. I wouldn’t recommend the material for towels, but good for a lightweight robe, and it has pockets.

The tease glass tumbler came with a solid bamboo lid and grey insulated sleeve, better than any I’ve seen locally .

The bamboo serve set with cutting board is again more solid than expected.

Rose gold bracelet is simple so wearable.

Basil isn’t exciting, but what the heck I’ll try to grow it for the winter months.

Don’t know anything about the vitamin C serum but looking forward to giving it a shot.

Another Causebox win for me, consistent quality of items and I’ll use everything in my box. It’s what keeps me coming back over and over.

Is there an algorithm or pattern that determines the order at which items ship? or is it totally random (which doesn’t make sense to track). If there was we can get a better idea when our boxes would ship. I’m still waiting for mine. For example it is based on when you customized first in first get, based by alphabetical name, based on the box you getting (2 of 4?), based on the time you customized (all 9am go first vs 5pm last), or just you box contents. Waiting for the box while seeing others get is frustrating because you don’t know if you getting soon or in 2 months for a box you paid for.

Label created 9/21
Arrived at Fedex 9/25 system and in transit
As of 10/1 today delivery status is “pending” on Fedex and basically my box is taking the scenic ride passing over 10 cities 7 states and still no sign of when it is going to show up and not even an ETA. So hopefully this comes in one piece. Will let you guys know when I actually get it or when it shows up. I’m annual and customized on day 1. I guess some people get express fedex and some get the snail pace ones. I wonder how they determine who gets what method of delivery. I would assume my glass item would ship faster considering with all the throwing my box in 12 checkpoints as of now the chances of it breaking gets higher. Will see if all my stuff makes it.

Just wanted to give a final update. so last month they were going to ship my 2 replacement items but since the towels were out of stock they said it would be arrive and delivered end of October. First week of Nov I followed up and within a day I get message my item was shipped. Just got the replacement box yesterday and glad the tumbler made it safely this time around. Have to say causebox customer service is very friendly. If everything comes on time great but if not and damage they seem to make it right for you. Not the fastest but at least they try to make you whole eventually. Really liked this box.

Wanted to give an update. Finally got a response by a very nice customer service on Friday. So it was a 5 day response rate for me. Not sure if it was me posting on IG on one of their advertisement posts that help or just timing. So they plan to send the replacements and I can keep the robe they incorrectly sent (that was a nice gesture, I would have happily sent it back if they gave me a return label). So hopefully the tea tumbler will arrive safely this time around because to me that was the highlight of the whole box to me. Will let you know when I actually get it, they projected up to 8 days. crosses fingers.

Gosh those are awful experiences, definitely not one would want to encounter when subscribing to a box. And hopefully it won’t get to this with causebox.
Anyway, I jinxed myself. Got my box yesterday, nothing crashed but my robe and bamboo serving set were damaged. I did contact them, got the email, and I did fill out the form (twice). I don’t know if it that was what made the difference, but I got an email in the evening from a very nice customer representative who offered replacements. So, I am not sure how long it’ll take for them to ship, but that’s what I’ve done. The form said it was to better streamline their assistance, if you haven’t heard from them I’d fill out that form twice. It worked for me. Good luck!

Thanks Izzie, the problem with mine is it involves 2 items so they told me not to fill out form and wait when I click on the link. I feel I might not get. Hope they respond and have items because that is all I want. I don’t want to exercise my legal rights because it is going to get ugly because once I start it may involved many agencies and court rulings as a result. But if I have to I will be using lots of time to set an example that will cost way more than the box for them for and for me it will just be time cost. I don’t want to spend min 2 year to fight for a $50 box and then I will trigger the next correction if they don’t pay up that may cost them additional attention, time and resources to resolve that ever company prefers to avoid unless they do everything properly and like spending a few year to deal with. Similarly, I have called companies out for doing something that might be fraudulent they just never correct it but since they correct it for me (which is the correct way it is done) I don’t bother reporting them because if they didn’t I need to report it to the authorities to get my money back. I always wonder if that was how some employee was embezzling funds or just the company.

T, did you receive an answer? a friend of mine got her box yesterday and she had a similar issue that required a replacement. She told me that she emailed customer care ([email protected]) and received immediately an automated email with a link to fill out a form (don’t know if you got that as well). She did and after a bit she received an email from a customer care representative who offered a replacement for the towels. As for the tumbler, she didn’t have issues with that and I think there should be enough for replacements. I thought to share her experience, so you know that the towels are still available. Hopefully they contacted you, if not maybe it’s worth to email them again. I’m waiting for my box to be delivered today, finger crossed!

Thanks Izzie. I do hope they can resend the replacements. I’m just worried that they might be out of stock with all the damages that everyone has. I just want my items. If they ship it again via fedex 2+ weeks I’m afraid the tumbler might not survive with them throwing the box at every checkpoint. I really just wanted the tumbler and the towels which was why I decided to get the box. I don’t even care if they send a different color for the towels I just needed the towels and tumbler for my tea. I can mail them back the robe that they incorrectly sent. If it was missing anything else I would not have even cared.

Hi T, I only had once bad shipping experience (with the spring box) where 2 items were damaged. I emailed them the pictures (I included the pics with my first email to avoid unnecessary back and forth) and they replaced the products pretty quickly. Perhaps, right now, they are taking more time to get back to you because they have many people reporting issues with their boxes – I suspect, given the fragile glass bottle and the robe/towel fiasco. Don’t despair and good luck!

I liked this box and that it wasn’t all cosmetics. I like the annual with the choices and that I can pause any time I’m not happy. And the marketplace was amazing! I had previously been a member and didn’t renew after a year because I felt the contents weren’t to may taste, but I like the new model and didn’t renew my FFF to subscribe here instead. I agree unless you are an annual, this box could be disappointing.

When will Causebox get it that no one wants an uncustomizable box? People don’t want it!!!!! Let us choose every item at seasonal level. Offer a discount to go annual or a gift.
Most people are over these boxes of crap you don’t want. I haven’t ordered a Causebox in a long time because I can’t choose what I want. Meanwhile I’ve been giving my money to RZBOS, PopSugar, Bombay & Cedar, etc…
If they changed their model tomorrow, put it up on all the media sites and allowed people to customize every part at seasonal, people would flock to sign up!!!! I guarantee it!
Take a page from Ipsy, boxy, B&C, FFF and change to fit the customer’s wants & needs. Wake up!!!

It’s especially frustrating because one of two choices for the hero item in this box is not size inclusive. It feels like a real slap in the face to seasonal subscribers to include an item that many of us could not wear, and not give us any way to opt out of it. I absolutely would have picked up this box if there had been a way for me to specify that I did not want the robe, but because I couldn’t, I cancelled. My money isn’t good enough for Causebox, I guess. 🤷‍♀️

Causebox did say that seasonals could call or email to request the towels over the robe if you were concerned about the robe sizing. I don’t think it was widely publicized because within 24 hours seasonals were emailing to request the robe, which wasn’t what the offer was.

Really don’t get this post or the anger. Why even comment if you don’t even get the box? Also, you do realize that seasonal subscribers can cancel at any time, right? Why would the company bend over backwards and give perks to subscribers who can just buy 1 box and then cancel? There’s no commitment for seasonal. They can cancel at any point. For yearly, you’re committed for at least a year, that’s why you get a small discount and get to choose items. It’s not unfair at all. It’s the perk of going annual, if you’re able to. If there was no perk, no one would go annual. At least Causebox isn’t like FabFitFun, Ipsy, Boxycharm or many others that have ridiculous numbers of variations, where you really have no idea what you might get. With this box, there are only a couple of choices per category (with the exception this month of the robe/towels which also come in different colours, so really 4 choices). Still way better than FFF with their 5+ choices PER category, which means you could really get a mixed bag of stuff you really don’t want. Sure Causebox could let seasonal choose at least one item in the box, but making demands with this kind of attitude and anger will get you nowhere.

Never will happen because there would be no incentive to pay for an annual sub. Personally I like their model, annuals get to choose 2-4 items each season and can skip if the box doesn’t appeal to them that particular season. Seasonals get to use discounted coupons each season so that is their benefit and I don’t think they should get to choose anything.

I got an email today saying I was getting the Fall box and they charged me… I order Intro Box 2 and cancelled right after because I didn’t want the Fall box. I 100% know that I cancelled (I should have taken a screenshot). Anyone else have this problem? Sent a message to their customer service and hopefully they take the charge off… :-/

When you log in to your account, does it say cancelled under your subscriptions? I bought a second Fall box the other day and cancelled any further boxes and it says cancelled right beside it. If it says cancelled when you log in and you were charged anyway, then they should definitely give you your money back.

I feel like Causebox shoots themselves in the foot a little bit with the number of intro boxes they sell. It’s so easy to feel burned if you buy a box at full price for one item, only to find that a week later that item is included in a $25 box. It makes me wary of buying any Causebox that doesn’t completely wow me, in case there’s another better/cheaper one the day after I check out!

I’m reading up on this. So it sounds like someone who orders after they run out of the seasonal box will get a smaller box at less cost – called a “intro box”

The welcome box is a regularly priced box that replaces the core box when it sells out, and often has some of the same items as the core box, and costs the full price. The intro boxes are only $25 and have less items. They come if the welcome box sells out too.

Michelle, correct. Sometimes it’s called a “summer welcome box” and sometimes it’s the “intro box.” They often have up to 3 of each.

I’m new and don’t understand this comment. For example, I wanted the lantern so I bought the sub. Are you saying the lantern will turn up in a $25 box? and how can I get a $25 box in general? Thanks in advance

Generally speaking, any items can show up in welcome ($55 without a coupon, also there are many coupons out there for $10 or so off) or intro ($25) boxes. These extra boxes only show up when the main box sells out. The intro boxes only become available when the welcome box sells out. No welcome box for that season unless the main box sells out; and if there is a welcome box that comes out then no intro boxes for that season unless the welcome box sells out.

With the welcome and intro boxes, you get items from previous boxes. From what I’ve seen, the welcome boxes ($55) have some of the items from that season’s main box and then some items from previous boxes. They also have a similar value (at least $250+). With the intro boxes ($25) you MIGHT get an item from that season’s main box or something else. They also have a lower value (I believe $200 or less), which is why the boxes are cheaper. I believe the intro boxes will have 2 or 3 surprise cheaper items that you won’t know what it is until you get the box, but they do give spoilers for the other 2 or 3 items that are more big ticket items.

I believe for the summer welcome box, there were 4 items that were also in the main summer box, plus 2 items from previous boxes. The highest value for the summer welcome box was $321, depending on choices. Not sure how much the main summer box was as I didn’t see prices listed here for many of the items, but I’ll assume the main box was also worth over $300. There were also 3 different intro boxes for this summer, but looking back on this website you can see that only 1 of the intro boxes had big items that were in the summer box (the PMD and stretch lids). The other 2 intro boxes had items from previous boxes. I hope this isn’t all confusing. lol

Last Summer the big ticket item, from an MSRP standpoint, was the PMD. The Summer box sells out. Then they sell the Summer Welcome box. Same price; same number of items, but not the same box. I believe, but feel free to fact check me, the PMD was included. It was the smaller items that differed.

Fast forward, then they sell the Summer Intro Box #1 – fewer items, but yes $25 dollars + tax. Then Summer Intro box #2 and … Summer Intro Box #3 – each $25. Which one you get depends on when you signed up. Want to buy them all? Create 3 accounts, which you can do in one profile. I don’t remember which intro box the PMD was in, but it was in one of them. Another featured a crossbody purse.

Now as the lantern wasn’t the hero item for Fall, it’s less likely to be featured, but yes it could, potentially be included in one of the many intro boxes to come.

I hope that helps!

I paused my subscription. This is a very unimpressive box and it would have been my first ‘full’ box because I only got the Summer Intro box so far. I don’t understand herbs in a fall box. As I am in Canada this is very useless to someone like me. For a spring box this would make more sense. I also don’t get a one-size-fits-all item. Also useless to me. I feel like more and more these companies are forcing you to become annual so you can choose your items, which isn’t fair. I do not have that kind of money.

So unimpressed. Was hoping to subscribe this season but so glad I waited until after the spoilers.

Unimpressed. First box I’m skipping since Summer 2018. The only think I actually like is the Muscle gel but I already have it. everything else is a strong Meh. It also looks like a FFF editors box (a mixture of previous season’s items) and not a true Fall box.

Didn’t we just get a serum in the summer box?
