UBOX Review and Coupon! September 2013 – College Subscription Box

With the new school year upon us, there are a few new college-focused subscription boxes available. One of them is UBOX who kindly offered me a trial box to review. I have a sister in college and another who will be college-bound soon so I had to say yes!

The Cost: $35 a month

The Coupon: Use code schooliscool for $5 off your first box!

The Products: UBOX delivers a selection of essentials a college kid might need and forget to pick up on their own. This includes everyday living necessities such as cleaning products, organization tools, and even some treats for those all-nighters.

Pura-Fit Ear Plugs – Value $1

I laughed when I saw the ear plugs – I know these would have come in handy when I was in college! My sister does not live in the dorms, but may still find them useful when spend the night out at someone’s dorm room.

Febreze Set & Refresh Gain Air Freshener – Value $3.50

This was another nice touch in the box because college students are not necessarily focused on keeping a clean area!

Scope Outlast Minibrushes, 2-ct. Pack – Value $1

Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash – Value $0.50

Orville Redenbacher’s Single Serving Mini Bag – Value $1

Pop Rocks in Strawberry – Value $0.75

Starbucks VIA® Mocha Flavored Coffee – Value $1

Now & Later in Watermelon – Value $1
Air Heads in Blue Raspberry – Value $0.75

Motorola Dual USB Power Adapter – Value $24.99

Downy Wrinkle Releaser – Value $2.89

The charger is great because you can use it on any phone, plus you can charge two things at once.

The Downy Wrinkle Releaser is definitely suiting for the box because there are times when college students will need a wrinkle-free shirt and I highly doubt there will be an iron nearby. I kept this to try out for those mornings I do not have time to iron my clothes for work!

IPad Stylus Pen – Value $8

I like that this pen works as a real pen as well as an IPad pen. My sister’s IPhone is cracked, so she was glad to get this so she doesn’t have to risk her fingers all day.

Home Store Collapsible Storage Container – Value $5

I remember I had a ton of these storage units in my dorm and in my flat when I moved out of the dorms. This is the most useful thing in the box in my opinion! I kept this for myself!

Binder 1 Year Calender (August 2013 to July 2014) – Value $5

Thoughts: I thought this was a great box for a college student and definitely has a ton of essentials. It reminds me a bit of Conscious Box for students in regard to the sizes and number of items in the box. There was over $55 in products in the box, but I still feel as though there was something missing. I would have liked to see one feature or high-end product in the box to really wow you and bring you in.

What do you think of UBOX? What items would you like to see featured in the box?
