The subscription box every student needs!

Written by Emmi Bowles

It is getting closer and closer to the end of my time at university, which I have to say is a rather scary thought. It is also rather stressful, so I was really excited to receive the March Unibox through the post.

Unibox is a monthly subscription box that basically acts as a student care package parents and friends can send to their loved ones who are away from home. I love the idea of this box as it includes everything a student could want during that set month.

This months box includes 8 full size items from relaxing beauty products to yummy treats. For £24.99 you receive a note card with an inspirational quote on it, the Unibox magazine, a full size shower gel and sleep spray, snacks, popcorn and tea, and some stationary bits and bobs.

I had only heard of Popcorn Shed before I received this box and it was nice to be introduced to some different brands. I am especially happy being introduced to Cocoa+ which was an amazing treat for after my gym session the other day – I will 100% be buying some more of that! The shower gel was also really interesting as it is a soap-free shower gel which I have never heard of before. But I must admit it smells amazing and is so soft on your skin.

What I love about this subscription box compared to others is that you get full-sized items, unlike other boxes who only give you mini versions. There is no doubt that you are getting more than your moneys worth.

something else which I really appreciate when it comes to this subscription is that not only are the items a nice treat but they are useful and things that we as students need. I don't think my family would think about sending me shower gel or post it notes. But it is stuff like this which is actually really useful and comes in handy when on a student budget.

This is deffinetly a great idea and one this student life editor would highly reccomend giving a go!
