Pijon Box College Subscription Box Review - April 2014 Fig Bar

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. This month’s theme is Get Energized – items to help you with working out.

Pijon Box College Subscription Box Review - April 2014 Socks

Bombas Socks (2 Pair Crew, 1 pair Ankle) – Value $27

At first I was surprised that Pijon Box sent 3 pairs of socks, but then I remembered that my mom always sent me lots of socks in college. (In fact she still seems to buy me socks all the time!)


Nature’s Bakery Fig bar in Raspberry and Blueberry – Value $3 total

My husband loves these all natural bars so these were a win for us!

Pijon Box College Subscription Box Review - April 2014 Sunglasses


Nectar Sunglasses – Value $20

LaFresh Antibacterial Wipes Travel Pack – Value $2.49

These antibacterial wipes are always good to have on hand, and I think I like these sunglasses too. (Not that I need anymore sunglasses!)

Verdict: I thought this was a good care package for a college student (or a 29 year old like myself!) I paid about $25 for this box with the subscription plan I signed up for, and I received over $50 of useful items so I’m very pleased with the value.

What did you think of the April Pijon Box?

  1. My daughter loves the socks. She was frightened when I told her how many calories one of the fig bars have, 150 each and there are two bars in the package. Her sunglasses didn’t have a smell, and they fit her well. She plans on bringing them to Europe with her this summer. She received the white ones. What color did you get Chelsea?

  2. Got this over the weekend and wore the socks while running/working out, really surprised how dry my feet were after my workout–these aren’t marketed as workout socks but they should be. Really a great deal.

    However, the sunglasses, scare me a little. They have a toxic rug like smell. I mean we are talking “new care smell” times ten. I can’t imagine wearing these on my face. So these will be trashed as I like my friends too much on pass these on.

  3. I already subscribe for my daughter and love this box, but if you click through the link above you will get $10 off at checkout. I believe this box follows the school calendar so there is only May left and then they break for the summer.

  4. Any codes for this one? I think I want to try this box out. Being a college student and all…though I still live at home basically lol

  5. When I was a freshman in college, there was a rumor going around about a guy who came to school with 30 pairs of socks, 30 pairs of underwear, and maybe also 30 t-shirts (I forget on this last one but it’s been a long time since 1996, and I suppose free t-shirts are widely available on college campuses) — so he would only have to do laundry once a month!
