Pijon Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code – Oct 2014 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Pijon Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code – Oct 2014 Smarty Pants

Bolt Earbuds – Value $6

Smarty Pants Vitamin Samples – Value $1

While I don’t need anymore earbuds, I know my college-going brother always needs a spare pair since he lends them to friends/etc., so I guess these are a good addition to a college care package box! (Unfortunately they don’t get great reviews on Amazon though).

And I’ve tried these gummy vitamins before thanks to subscription boxes. I really like them, but they have a lot of sugar so I’m glad there were only two sample packs in this box!

Pijon Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code – Oct 2014 Lip Balm

Rooted Beauty Orange Vanilla Lip Butter – Value $5

I first discovered this natural beauty brand through Pijon box (a different flavored lip balm about a year ago) so I’m happy to have another lip balm from Rooted Beauty! (And the charity work behind the brand is inspiring too!)

Pijon Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code – Oct 2014 Oat Works

Oat Works Peach Mango Drink – Value $2

Ips Egg White Chips in Sea Salt & Black Pepper – Value $1.50

These Ips aren’t bad (I’ve sampled them before). This OatWorks drink isn’t for me though – I have no need for liquid gluten!

 Pijon Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code – Oct 2014 Notebooks

Writersblok Anaconda Notebooks – Value $18 total

I’ve never seen notebooks vacuum sealed before! I like that the print on this notebook is texturized, and notebooks are definitely a good addition to a college care package.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $34. It’s not bad for the monthly $29 plus $1.95 shipping cost, but I think it’s a much better deal if you do a 1-semester or 2-semester subscription.  (With the sendlv25 coupon code it brings the cost down of a two-semester subscription to a little over $20 a box).

What do you think of the October Women’s Pijon Box?

  1. This is my least favorite box from Pijon. Nothing in here that will really make either of my college girls very happy or excited. Just hoping this isn’t a trend & next month will be back on course.

  2. I would love to read a review of the men’s box! I have a son in college and can’t tell if he would like this or not…

  3. Thank you for your feedback about our products. To avoid any misinformation, we would like to clarify that Oatworks products contain NO added sugar and NO gluten. The sweetness is derived entirely from the sugars which occur naturally in the fruits – in the same way that a glass of freshly-squeezed OJ or apple juice contains naturally-occurring sugars. In addition, the soluble fiber in the oats, known as beta glucan, slows down the release of the naturally-occurring sugars in the fruits. That means that those sugars provide you with sustained energy for several hours, and help you avoid the sugar “high” and subsequent “crash” that you get with sugary beverages or even a regular fruit juice.

  4. They use the same stuff over and over again. I’ve received the Rooted lip blam, Smarty Pants vitamins, and Oat Works drink before. It’s boring and feels like rip off if you subscribe for an extended amount of time. They really need to up the variety and think about curation.

  5. Seems like decent value but no new products seen many or all these in other boxes except the notebooks. I hated this box when i subscribed to it. Paid less than 17 after deals but never felt like i got my moneys worth.

  6. I’ve got no problem with gluten (I’m eating non-GF oatmeal as I type this) but I don’t like the Oat Works drinks, either. Far, far too much sugar.
