The Box:

I love the concept behind this subscription box because college students really appreciate fun care packages. My March shipment arrived in a cool branded box with the contents carefully wrapped inside. This month’s theme is all about getting energized. Let’s check out what’s inside…


Not Your Mother’s Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter
Value: USD $6.00

Plump for Joy will have your hair looking from drab to fab in just a few sprays. This salon formula product will thicken and strengthen your thin hair while adding tons of body and shine to and help bring your do back to life. I sprayed a bit of he spray into my palm then scrunched it into my hair from ends to roots. The final look was perfection!

Energems Energy Candies (Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chocolate)
Value: USD $2.99 per box, $5.98 total

After a long night of studying, sometimes a little energy boost is needed. Energems Energy Candies are here to save the day. These supplements are bite-sized, hard-coated gems made with real milk chocolate. Each 15 calorie candy contains caffeine, B-vitamins and a proprietary energy blend. Personally, I found this product to be a bit high in sugar.

TOCCS Panorama Earbuds
Value: USD $29.00

I’m also losing or breaking my headphones so it was so nice to receive this pair of TOCCS Panorama Earbuds. These earbuds feature a custom-shaped inner ear and noise cancelling outer shell. The fit is super comfortable and I could barely feel the weight of the earbuds when I was wearing them. Best of all, this product comes with a built-in microphone and remote.

Pan De Oro Organic Garlic Herb Tortilla Chips
Value: USD $1.75

Pan De Oro Organic Tortilla Chips are made from American-grown organic corn masa flour based dough that’s pressed through a sheeter. The Garlic Herb flavor is bold and savory and the chips have a light crispy texture. I paired these tortilla chips with fresh, homemade pico de gallo and the flavor combination was incredible!

Revolution Tea Sample Pack
Value: USD $0.44 each, $1.32 total

I start every morning with a warm cup of tea. Revolution Tea has over a decade of experience sourcing ingredients from more than 19 countries. This three bag sample pack includes Blackberry Jasmine, Raspberry and Peach Mango varieties. My favorite flavor was the rich, dark Jasmine which has sweet notes of blackberry

I wish Pijon Box was available when I was in college. This subscription is so much fun and I was impressed by the variety and the quality of the products. My favorite item this month is the Not Your Mother’s Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter. Instead of throwing my hair into a messy pony tail, I can use this cure-all product to tame my mane. Love it! Any college student would appreciate receiving this box each month.

    This is a great idea. Even though some moms take the time to send homemade cookies, not all of us do this. This subscription is a timesaver.

      It’s definitely a convenient subscription. You can purchase an annual subscription and your child will be all set for the school year!

      Same here! I wish Pijon Box was available when I was in college. It’s great that you can select from a men’s, women’s or gender neutral box too.
