So a couple of years ago, this pretty cool looking subscription care package aimed at a university student, called Unibox started up, but whilst I had access to offers, 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 selection 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 theme of the month. I have to admit it just feels a little dull for a unicorn themed box.
Then, even though the website promises 100% vegan snacks on its pocket page banner, I was sent nuts with honey in. I found this useless for me and rather 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 that it is 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. 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 student Unibox, and I have to say I am relieved that at least I didn’t purchase the larger package! 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 then you are able to find it at: https://theunibox.com/pocket/ However, for a package aimed at a student, who by design are low on money, it really doesn’t seem like you are getting anywhere near value for it.
