Pijon - February 2015

When in college, one of the most exciting things is getting mail for sure. What's even cooler is when you receive a lovely care package curated just for you! 

Introducing Pijon!

This curated monthly college care package subscription is one that students such as myself can enjoy receiving! Each subscription typically consists of essentials, healthy snacks, beauty supplies and fun treats. It's easy to get started. It literally takes about three steps. For example, first, pick a plan starting from $23 then choose your gender (male, female, or gender-neutral). Next, Pijon selects the contents of your box ranging from a $30 to $60 retail value. Lastly all you have to do is sit back and wait for your box to be delivered to you!

Today I'll be showing you all what I received in my women's box this month!

Oatworks Oatmeal Beverage in Pomegranate Blueberry - I've never received an actual smoothie drink in a subscription before so I was instantly intrigued by this one. My first thought of an oatmeal beverage was "yuck". I don't enjoy oatmeal besides in cookies but this has surely changed my mind. It had a great smooth taste and was awesome to grab in the morning before class as an on the go treat.

Not Your Mother Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter - Although I do not have fine, thin hair I did enjoy using this hair lifter based on its smell. It smells absolutely amazing! It even adds shine which is a bonus for me but however is probably not a product that I'd purchase on my own. 

Jimmy Bars in No Bluffin' Banana Muffin - These bars seemed really yummy but what instantly turned me away was the inclusion of nuts. I'll be passing these on to a friend who I'm sure would enjoy them even though they are tempting to try.

Go Mini Towels - These mini towels reminded me of deodorant wipes but a slightly larger size. I'll be throwing these in my gym bag since I would not rely on these to freshen up on without a morning shower. For some reason, that idea does not come off as even remotely attractive.

Game Day Mint Lip Balms + SPF30 - Lip balms are products that I personally can't live without. I was a bit curious on why this was included in the women's Pijon box considering it says "skincare for men" on the label. Without hesitation I passed this along to Andrew. I don't think I'll be missing out on much. His reaction was that it was quite a greasy balm so maybe it was a good thing it didn't end up in my cosmetic bag. 

Revolution Tea (Sample 3-Pack) - Oh how I love tea but I'm typically not as excited to receive it in a subscription box. This sample pack was nice in variety and was a new brand to me considering I'm a strict TAZO tea kind of girl. I can't wait to give these a try! Who knows, maybe I'll make a switch.

Brush with Bamboo Toothbrush - The description for this toothbrush was sort of funny (pictured below). Refreshing like a panda would surely be fun. In college, it definitely comes in handy to have toothbrushes on hand especially when living on campus. Saves me from buying another for a while! Also the idea that it's made out of bamboo is pretty cool in my opinion.

Overall, this box was surely interesting but I think I'd prefer to receive a curated care package from per se a best friend. I received eight products that valued up to about $30+. Not bad at all but I don't think I'd be continuing this subscription due to my college budget but it was nice to give it a try. Also I would like another one of those Oatworks Oatmeal beverages. I'm definitely going to be on the look out for those in the grocery store!
