So a couple of years ago this pretty cool looking subscription package aimed at students started called Unibox, and whilst I had access to offers etc I never actually got round to trying them out, as a skint student ironically it wasn’t top on my priorities with money.
Anyway fast forward to now and they recently launched a smaller version called Unipocket, doesn’t come in a nice box or with a magazine but you get a seletion of the goodies that are in the main Unibox for half the price. Awesome I thought, I will finally give them a go!
Unfortunately thats pretty much where my enthusiasm ends. Whilst the arrival of the cute, shiny, blue pocket package on my doorstep valentines morning was a nice surprise, the contents left me substantially underwhelmed.
The stationary feels cheap and thoughtless with a fairly basic notebook and cheap feeling multicolour pen, barely fitting with the unicorn theme of the month.
Then, even though the website promises 100% vegan snacks on its pocket page banner, I was sent nuts with honey in. Pointless and very annoying.
The only thing I am happy with is the very pretty unicorn themed glitter face-mask, although I have yet to actually try this out, I am hoping that I will at least find something worth having. However with this retailing at under £4 online, coupled with the rest of the cheap contents, I do not in the slightest feel that the Unipocket was worth the amount I paid for it and as such I won’t be continuing the subscription any time soon.
In the packet you also get a sticker and an inspirational quote post card included, and whilst these are cute, they really aren’t enough to warrant the money or save the day.
A quick instagram search brings up the full contents of this months Unibox and I have to say I am relieved at least that I didn’t purchase the larger package! One saving grace I guess. The additional products certainly do not warrant the higher price tag in the slightest.
Overall I am completely disappointed with the Unipocket, but if you want to check it out yourselves it can be found at: https://theunibox.com/pocket/ However, for a package aimed at students, who by design are low on money, it really doesn’t seem like you are getting anywhere near value for it.
