December UBOX College Subscription Box Review | #ubox4u
UBOX kindly sent me this box for review. UBOX is a college subscription box that sends college students a box full of fun and useful items. I would have loved to have a college subscription box back in the day. This is a nice and easy way to send care packages to your loved ones. UBOX strives to feature products that are college start ups, socially responsible, or innovative (or cool). If you want to subscribe, go to www.ubox4u.com
UBOX includes a mix of products from the following categories:
a. Home Away from Home-Stuff for your dorm room
b. Me, Myself and Items-Self improvement items or items you can use by yourself
c. School is Cool-School related stuff
d. For the Techie in You-New or cool gadgets
e. Care to Share?-Things you can do or share with your friends
f. Awesome Snacks-Food!
UBOX usually uses a different, better looking box. They included a note this time that said “We had to make some last minute adjustments with the packaging to fit in some extra goodies”.
UBOX has the best information sheet. It is themed as a syllabus. It has office hours, objectives, and more. The list of contents in the box is listed as “materials overview”. This is a very unique way to share all the important information.
|Lucky Brand Laila Plaid Scarf $39.00|
This is a beautiful, soft scarf. I love that it is a Lucky Brand scarf. I couldn't find this exact scarf online, but I found a similar scarf. This is perfect for those walks between classes.
3 Pack of Energems and a $1.00 coupon: $8.50
Flavrz Energy Add in $2.80 for 2
Yogi Vanilla Spice Perfect Energy Tea (2 packets) .40 cents
UBOX included many items to make sure college students stay awake during finals, or on that long car ride home for holiday break. The energems came in 3 flavors: chocolate charge, peanut butter blast, and mint fusion. Each piece has 15 calories, b vitamins and caffeine. They actually taste good too! The tea is 100% natural is designed to energize the body and focus the mind. The flavrz drink drop in water to give you an energy kick. These are great after working out too.
Grab Green 3 in 1 laundry detergent $1.07
Grab Green Bleach Alternative .50 cents
|Dr Bonners Magic Soap 2 oz Peppermint Hemp $1.18|
UBOX wants to make sure college students smell clean. The Grab Green laundry detergent is great because they are little pods. These take up a small amount of room and clean lots of laundry . The Dr Bommers has in invigorating scent and has 18 different uses! This stuff will not only leave you cleaner but healthier.
Of course you can't have a college box without study aids. Index cards are a must for speeches and flash cards. Ear plugs are always handy in a dorm. If you are writing a paper, wite out is always helpful. The Dream Water is 0 calories and designed to help you sleep and relax without drugs.
|Starrily Barbie's First Christmas Nail Polish $10.00
Bonus item: Money perfume samples his and her
This nail polish is very cute and fun! UBOX threw in samples of the scent Money. Her Money has a very nice floral scent and His Money smells fantastic. It has a musk smell to it.
Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn $1.00
Ghiradelli Holiday Squares (4) $1.00
Who doesn't like getting treats? These Ghiradelli squares are wonderful. The peppermint bark is my favorite. Popcorn is great for late night movies or study sessions.
|The Joy Factory Waterproof Sleeve $3.21|
This is a water proof sleeve for you smart phone. There is a hole at the top of the bag, so you can clip it toy your purse or backpack. This is great for keeping your phone dry and safe. I am going to use this when I run.
|Gift Bag, Card and Tissue $2.00|
This was a nice added touch to the box. College students don't get much time to shop before the holidays. This is great for putting together that last Christmas present.
|The Whole Box|
Final Thought: The total value of this box was $80.92! This box costs only $35.00, so I am really happy with this value. The box was great and filled with so many useful and fun things. The scarf was my favorite item of the box. The waterproof sleeve is very unique and new to me. That is a great addition to this box. I also enjoy how UBOX included items for so many different things: energy, studding, snacks, beauty, etc. If you are interested in signing up for UBOX, click HERE.
