MSC Skincare Body Scrub – Retail Value $33 (Full-Size!)

I really liked this scrub a lot and the smell is fantastic.

Raw Revolution Chunky Peanut Butter Bar – Retail Value $1.80

This bar was really tasty. It had a nice balance of peanut butter which is nice because many bars go a little overboard with the peanut butter.

Morning Sunshine Breakfast Cookie – Retail Value $2.25

I was really looking forward to this cookie, but was a little disappointed because there was something about the taste that was off.

IPS Egg White Chips in Barbecue and Aged White Cheddar - Retail Value $1.75 each

I was really intrigued by these chips. Initially, I thought they were made from just egg white, but this is not the case, it is also made with corn. They are full of flavor and I love them.

Biotera Dry Shampoo – Retail Value $7.99

I like that the dry shampoo is easier to use in the spray can which makes it easier to use. I also really liked the scent.

Dry Soda Vanilla Bean – Retail Value $1.25

This was so good, I had a hard time accepting when I drank the last of it. My only issue with the soda is that it goes flat very fast.

Thoughts: In terms of value, the box does great at just under $50. I thought the box was very heavy on the snacks and I would have liked to replace one of the snacks with another small lifestyle product or something to celebrate the end of finals. Otherwise, I am pretty happy with the box. What did you think about the May Pijon Box?

pijonbox college subscription box review

A couple of months ago, PijonBox was on sale on Living Social and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try out this college subscription box.

 Pan De Oro Organic Tortilla Chips – Retail Value $3.99

This is so yum. Tortilla chips are just never a bad thing, plus it’s enough to share.

Revolution Tea $2.99

I love these flavors of all three teas. You can drink these with little to no sweeteners added.

Energems Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Candies - Retail Value $2.99 each

I tried these once before and they do work. I’ve been taking a serving every morning before work and it helps me not be as crabby as I normally am in the morning.

 Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter from Not Your Mother - Retail Value $6.99

I don’t really need anything like a thickening hair lifter, but something about the packaging really makes me want to try it out.

TOCCS Panorama Earbuds – Retail Value $29

When I was in college, I was always losing my earbuds. I would have loved to get these in a package when I was in college.

Thoughts:  I liked the box and many of the samples. I am not sure I would be too excited about it if I received this in college. There wasn’t really anything that particularly stood out to me as being really fun to get.
