Pijon Box Review - College Student Subscriptions

A few weeks ago I posted about a deal on Living Social for a discount on Pijon Box. (This deal is no longer available, but make sure to sign up for the My Subscription Addiction Daily Newsletter to never miss another subscription box deal!).

Even though I’m not a college student, I decided to take advantage of this deal – everyone can enjoy a monthly care package, right?

Each box comes with a card detailing the items selected for that month. (Pijon box offers subscriptions for both men and women, and this review is of the women’s box).

Baggu Bag – Value $9

Metropolis Soap Co. Lip Creams – Value $13.98 total

I love Baggu bags! I think I have about 10 of them and I always want more when they release new prints. These lip creams are great too – they’re all natural and vegan!

Awesome Bars in Blueberry Almond and Salty Peanut – Value $5 total

My husband loved these granola bars! I also like that these seem to be a pretty healthy snack for a college box!

Awake Chocolate in Milk and Caramel – Value $2

Caffeinated chocolate – totally makes sense for a all-night study sessions!

Rooted Beauty Raspberry Citrus Invigorating Facial Wipes – Value $6.99

I was so happy to see paraben-free and hypoallergenic facial wipes in this box! Plus they have a great scent! (This box also included coupons for online tutoring and thredUP).

Verdict: This box had a value of approximately $37 (not counting the thredUP or InstaEDU offers). I think this box had a great value, and more importantly, I think all the products are quality items that have been thoughtfully curated. I’m really happy to see a college box sending out healthy items!

What do you think of Pijon Box?

  1. I was in on the LivingSocial deal too and I would have been really ticked if I spent more than I did on this box because the value just wasn’t there. Maybe I’m too used to PopSugar with their $100 value boxes for $35/month, but this box just felt cheap to me. :/ And the soon-to-be-expired granola bars didn’t help that matter either. Probably won’t re-subscribe after my subscription ends unless they make up for it next month.

    Another thing, their customer service is really lacking. I posted on their Facebook page’s wall to see why it was taking so long for our boxes to arrive (scheduled to ship on Oct. 5th and they didn’t ship till around the 18th), but instead of publicly responding, they deleted my post and other people’s posts, as well. After apologizing for it, they proceeded to do it again to us. I was appalled by this practice since I’m a business owner myself and I want to let others know about what they’ve done. PopSugar leaves their bad reviews and customer questions on their Facebook page and they respond to them; other businesses should do the same. Businesses look better to customers when they admit they’ve screwed up in public rather than trying to hide it.

    Sorry for the rant, but I’m a stickler for customer service and perceived value.

  2. I got my box yesterday and thought it was a good one. I think $20 per box would be more reasonable. One issue, my granola bars both expire on November 1st. Less than a week to eat the goodies before they expire is kind of cutting it close. I also hate the smell of spearmint (glad I’m not alone on that) but couldn’t resist breaking the seal to see if the lime might improve the smell, it didn’t.

  3. I got the Living Social deal (thank you!), and except for the lip creams (can’t stand spearmint but will gift) am very please with the box. The caramel Awake is yummy and my daughter and I are excited about the wipes.

  4. I thought it was a cute box! I liked the lime lip cream and of course the Baggu bag. 🙂
