Pijon box is a monthly subscription for college students. Even though I’ve been out of college for a while, I was more than happy to review a box when the folks at Pijon sent one to me. Having been in ‘college’ for 10 years (BS, MS, MD – I made a career at collecting letters behind my name!), I think the idea of getting a box every month in the mail would have been awesome. It’s so nice to get things in the mail when life seems like an endless stack of papers and midterm exams!
My Pijon box had a great assortment of goodies. It was a nice mix of snacks, beauty and etc. I’ve seen Mamma Chia snacks at the store before and more than once thought about grabbing one to try. I love chia seeds! These little snacks are delicious and perfect to keep in my coat pocket for a snack on those busy days when I’m rushing from the hospital to clinic. The box also had Tapaz2Go which are lentil crackers with shelf-stable hummus. I’m always a little leery of things like that that usually need refrigeration being able to stay out of the fridge, because it typically means lots of added preservatives. Luckily the label of Tapz2Go passed the “Can I pronounce this?” test.
I’ve been meaning to switch to a more natural deodorant, given that the kind I’ve been using since high school has lots of harsh chemicals. pHresh natural deodorant is just what the doctor ordered! I can’t believe how well it works, even after a workout.
Pat was more stoked than me about the Light My Fire sporks. He grabbed them up before I even had a chance to try them to use for an upcoming camping trip.
My favorite part of my Pijon Box was Color Club Nail Polish in a shockingly bright pink! I’ve been meaning to take the plunge to a bright colored nail polish and this was just what I had in mind! It was definitely a change from my usual unmanicured look, but I have to say, every time the bright pink catches my eye, I smile! My hands are dry and full of hangnails, so it was nice that they included Waxelene petroleum jelly alternative to moisturize before my mani.
It’s a bit like Pijon box got in my brain. There were a few things I’ve been meaning to try, something to make Pat happy, and something to push me out of my comfort zone. I loved my Pijon box so much I almost forgot that they are geared towards college kids. How cool would it be to get one every month to brighten up your day between papers and midterms?
Each box has a $35-50 value, but is as low as $25 per month with a subscription. Use the promo code ‘BlondePijon‘ to get $10 off your first box!
