Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code – Sept 2014http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/pijon-box-subscription-review-10-coupon-code-sept-2014.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/pijon-box-subscription-review-10-coupon-code-sept-2014.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 22:13:34 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28895 Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept

Pijon Box is a monthly subscription care-package box for college students. Each box usually includes some essential basics, plus some other fun or healthy items you might hope to find in a care package!

FYI – the boxes are customized for guys or girls, and I’m reviewing the girls box.

Also, they changed their packaging, and I noticed this message on the side of the box:

“Be Good. Don’t Steal :) This Pijon Box is for the intended recipient only, and was sent with love.

If this is not your care package, please respect the property of the addressee and help them receive this package intact.”

Are college students having their subscription boxes stolen? I never had that problem when I was in school, and my brother is in college now and never had an issue. This is a little baffling to me!

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 First Look

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Items

The Subscription Box: Pijon Box

The Cost: $29 a month or $25 a month with 6-month subscription.

COUPON: Use coupon code media-deal to save $10 off any length subscription. (They offer standard 4-month and 8-month subscription plans to cover the Fall and Spring semesters, but you can also subscribe to any customer amount of boxes from 1 to 50!)

The Products: 5-6 products in the following categories: food and snacks, health and beauty, essentials, and awesome accessories and gadgets.

Ships to: US only

Delivered via: UPS Sure Post (may be delivered by UPS, may be delivered by USPS)

Check out my Pijon Box reviews!

pijon-box-sept-info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. 

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Socks

Jonathan Adler Socks - Value $14

Little Miracles Organic Energy Green Tea -Value $3

Yay for Jonathan Adler socks! This is a great print, and I just love getting new socks in subscription boxes. I gave this green try but it was a little too sweet for me. (I usually drink tea unsweetened though, so I’m guessing it’s the right amount of sweet for most people).

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Smart Bars

Detour Smart Bar - Value $1.99 Each

Stur Drink Enhancer – Value $3.99 Each

My husband really likes these Smart Bars, and we haven’t tried Stur yet, but I like that it’s all natural.

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Bean Chips

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips in Barbecue - Value $1.49 Each

Revolution Tea Sample Pack in Southern Mint – Value $1.50

I’ve tried both of these items before thanks to subscription boxes and they’re great so these are wins.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $34. I think it’s a good value for a subscription box considering a lot of the items are food. (Food subscription boxes rarely have high values compared to the cost paid). I love the socks and we’ll eat all the snacks so I’m happy with this box. I would have liked to see a personal care item though like a lip balm or facial cleanser, etc.

What do you think of the September Pijon Box?

Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/lip-factory-beauty-subscription-box-review-september-2014.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/lip-factory-beauty-subscription-box-review-september-2014.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 19:10:20 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28886 Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Box

Lip Factory is a monthly full-size makeup subscription box. They tend to send a variety of drugstore and mid-tier makeup, and the value seems to always be at least double the cost of the box. (Extra good news – they ship worldwide!)

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Items

The Subscription Box: Lip Factory

The Cost: $22 a month

The Products: Full sized makeup and beauty products.

Ships to: US, Canada (extra $4), and International (extra $10)

Check out all of my Lip Factory reviews and the Beauty Subscription Box Directory!

Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Info

Each box comes with a folded card detailing the items included for that month.

Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Eyeshadow

JCat Beauty Jar Eyeliner – Value $6

ModelCo Eye Shadow Trio – Value $26

There is something about an eyeshadow palette in a subscription box that just makes me happy! And this palette is “Nautrally Neutral” which is perfect for me. (Not sure if you can tell in the photo, but the middle eyeshadow is a matte finish, and the other two shades have a slight shimmer.

The eyeliner on the other hand I may swap or gift since I have way too much eyeliner reserves right now!

Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Lipgloss

Girlactik Pout Shine – Value $19

Ofra Lip Gloss in Orchid – Value $13

Angle Eyeliner – Value $9

I’m liking both of these lip gloss shades. The Ofra lip gloss isn’t sticky at all (my biggest pet peeve with lip products), and it provides a lot of shine and shimmer.

(FYI – This eyeliner brush isn’t branded, so I’m just going off the value listed in the card).

Verdict: I paid $22 for this box and received over $70 worth of makeup products. Pretty much every month I’m impressed with the value of this box. They tend to repeat some brands though (like JCat), but as long as you’re OK with getting several makeup items from the same brand in the course of your subscription I recommend this box!

Your Bijoux Box is a monthly jewelry subscription box for women. With every box you get 3 pieces of jewelry picked by Your Bijoux Box stylists. (This is not a customized box – everyone gets the same 3 pieces, however I believe you can request no earrings if you email them).

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 First Look

Your Bijoux Box sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Bags

The Subscription Box: Your Bijoux Box

The Cost:  $35 a month with free shipping

The Products: 3 pieces of hand curated jewelry at your doorstep each month.

Ships to: US and Canada

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Info

And each box comes with a card detailing the pieces included, plus they add some styling tips!

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Earrings

Fiona Floral Studs

Your Bijoux Box included these as a simple earring stud that could go with the statement necklace included in the box. (I like that they go together but don’t exactly match).

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Bracelet

Nina Oxblood Cuff

I think stretchy cuffs are probably my favorite type of bracelet (bangles can annoy me when I’m typing!). This one is perfect and I love the fall colors too.

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Necklace

Fiona Fall Collar

This is one of my favorite Your Bijoux Box pieces to date. Again, the colors are perfect for fall, and I just think it is beautiful. Here’s a closer look:

Your Bijoux Box Jewelry Subscription Box Review – Sept 2014 Detail

Verdict: I think this is another great month for Your Bijoux Box! All the pieces look nice together but work separately as well. And again, I kust love the purple color theme this month! What do you think of the latest Your Bijoux Box pieces?

Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD03http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/riot-read-monthly-book-club-subscription-review-rrd03.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/riot-read-monthly-book-club-subscription-review-rrd03.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 04:56:33 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28842 Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription #RRD03

First things first – I do not recommend this subscription if you are looking for a good retail value. The goal of the subscription is to get you a new great book every month, but Book Riot and Quarterly can’t compete with Amazon, so you are paying a premium to get a monthly curated book sent to you each month. It’s not for everyone – but it does seem to be for a lot of people – it’s the 8th most popular subscription on Quarterly, and they are launching a YA and Nonfiction version soon!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD03 Items

The Subscription Box: Riot Read – Book Riot’s Monthly Book Club

The Cost: $30 a month

The Products: 1 new book (released within the past few weeks) selected by Book Riot.

Ships to: US (free shipping), Canada ($10 shipping), Worldwide ($15 shipping)

Check out all of my Riot Read reviews!

Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD03 Letter

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing their selections. The Riot Read team discussed why they picked Lucky Us this month, gave a brief synopsis of the book, and also reminded readers that on October there will be a live chat with author Amy Bloom on the Riot Read site.

Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD03 Amy Bloom

Lucky Us by Amy Bloom – Retail Value $26 On Amazon for $15.60

This book was actually on my Amazon wish list, so that worked out nicely for me!

Verdict: The big issue with this subscription is value. I know a lot of readers were disappointed that there weren’t more exclusive extras to make up for the price difference in what you would save buying the book from Amazon each month. It seems like Book Riot heard that feedback, and they now have a Riot Read members only Goodreads group for subscribers. I probably will end up canceling my subscription because of the value issue, but I just haven’t brought myself to do it yet – I love getting a surprise book each month!

What do you think of the members-only Goodreads group? Does that add to the value of the subscription for you?

Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection on the cheap!

(FYI – Just like Birchbox, Ipsy sends out many different variations of their bag each month – so my review is just one of the bag variations you might receive!)

Ipsy Review - September 2014 Pacifica

HIKARI Lipstick in Cabernet – FULL SIZE Value $13

Pacifica 7 Free Nail Color in Red Red Wine – FULL SIZE! Value $9

I guess I like wine-inspired makeup because I am loving both of these shades! I’ve seen a few manicure photos on Instagram with this Pacifica shade and it is gorgeous!

Ipsy Review - September 2014 NYX

NYX Eyeshadow in Bling Bling Bling – FULL SIZE! Value $4.50

Crown Brush Crease and Shadow Brush – Retail Value $17.50, on sale for $7

This NYX eyeshadow isn’t as highly pigmented as some of the other shades I’ve tried from the brand, but that’s OK in the case of silver eyeshadow.

I always love getting new makeup brushes in subscription boxes (no matter how much I clean them, new brushes are always better than old ones!), and this dual ended one is very convenient.

Ipsy Review - September 2014 Briogeo

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask – 1 oz Value $5

I like that this hair mask is phthalate and paraben free, but I’ve tried it before and it did nothing for my hair.

Verdict: I like this month’s Ipsy box much more than last month. I received about $40 worth of items, and I love that almost everything was full-sized! The makeup colors are all appropriate for fall, and even the bag is cute! (And it doesn’t have a chemical smell!)

What did you think of Ipsy this month? Which samples did you get?

Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon – August 2014http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/little-lace-box-subscription-review-coupon-august-2014.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/little-lace-box-subscription-review-coupon-august-2014.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 21:55:36 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28800 Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon - August

Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon - August 2014 FIrst Look

COUPON: Use coupon code mysubscriptionaddiction10 to save $10 off your first box!

Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon - August 2014 Soap

Enummi Skin Care Set – Foil Packet Samples Value $3?

SoapBox Black Soap – Value $5

This skincare sample set included: gentle facial cleanser, restoring eye cream, night recovery cream, refreshing toner, and life c energizing serum. I’m not a fan of foil packets in subscription boxes since they are a bit of a mess to deal with and rarely have enough product for you to actually see if it works for you.

The soap on the other hand I love. It’s made with all natural and organic ingredients, and for every bar of soap purchased SoapBox donates one to a child in need!

Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon - August 2014 Scarf

Graymarket Design Scarf - Value $45

This item is from the featured up and coming designer of the month – Greymarket Design. I LOVE this scarf! It’s a very lightweight fabric and I love the print and color.

Little Lace Box Subscription Review & Coupon - August 2014 Perfume

By Rosie Jane Leila Lou Roll On Fragrance Oil – 3.2 ml Value $25

The Sexiest Scent on The Planet. Ever. - Sample Value $4

This By Roise Jane brand is completely new to me and I’m so impressed that they make their perfumes with 100% essential oil – no synthetic fragrances! Plus I like the scent too!

And while I was surprised to find two different perfumes in this box, I kind of like the sexiest scent ever too!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $80 – double the $40 cost. I like that they’ve included some new-to-me brands that do seem to be very up-and-coming. The only item I’m not crazy about is the skin sample set.

What do you think of Little Lace Box?

Taryn Manning Quarterly Box – Are You Interested?http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/taryn-manning-quarterly-box-are-you-interested.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/taryn-manning-quarterly-box-are-you-interested.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:07:07 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28797 Tayrn Manning Quarterly Box

Taryn Manning is the latest potential Quarterly curator! Quarterly recently started asking fans if they would be interested in a box before they commit to making it a subscription. If you’d be interesting in a Taryn Manning (AKA ‘Pennsatucky’ from Orange is the New Black), you can submit your email to let them know. You also can give suggestions on what you’d like to see in the box. (Check out this video from Taryn to see more of what she’s thinking for the box).

Are you interested in this box? I am, but then again I’m interested in pretty much any box, so I’m probably not the right person to ask!

French Box Subscription Review – September 2014http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/french-box-subscription-review-september-2014.html http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2014/09/french-box-subscription-review-september-2014.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 17:29:12 +0000 http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/?p=28777 French Box Subscription Review - September

Finally – the first French Box has arrived! (I think this is one of the most anticipated subscription box launches this year!)

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Unboxing

I took a lot of unboxing photos because the packaging is just gorgeous!

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Ribbon

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Items

The Subscription Box: French Box

The Cost: $24 a month (First box special – $14!)

The Products: Each box contains 5 products from French brands: fashion, cosmetics, gourmet and others surprises! FrenchBox is the best way to discover or share the latest products from France.

Ships to: US only.

Delivered via: USPS

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Box Info

This month is grape harvesting season in France, and they included a wine inspired recipe:

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Pear

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Card

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Postcard

The box also came with this cute postcard.

Now on to the actual items!

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Lip Liner

Sothys Lip Pencil in #3 Naturel – FULL SIZE! Value $16

This is the one item not listed on the card, so I’m guessing it may vary box-to-box.

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Lipstick

Sothys Hydra-Glide Liptsick in #20 Brun chaud – FULL SIZE! Value $25

Caudalie Makeup Remover Cleansing Water – 30 ml Value $4

This lipstick is a little on the dark side (and orange side) for me, but I’ll definitely use the makeup remover.

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Gummies

BuddyFruits Fruit Bites – Value $1.50

Missiu Eiffel Tower Bracelet – Value $12

I get way too excited about gummies made with natural ingredients – these were gone in a minute!

Here’s a better look at the bracelet:

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Bracelet

This is the only item in the box that doesn’t feel Paris chic to me.

French Box Subscription Review - September 2014 Tote

Whispering Angel Wine Bag – Value $15

I love this wine tote! Now if only I could order Whispering Angel wine online!

Verdict: I paid $17 for this box (I bought a year subscription at the discount they were offering upfront). I received over $70 worth of items – a great value for a first box! I was pretty nervous about buying a full year subscription without seeing a box first, but now I can relax! Plus the packaging of this box is so fantastic – it feels like opening a gift.

What do you think of the first French Box? Did you get different variations than my box?
