I was surprised to find that there is tissue and a theme for the month: Don’t Panic. Grab your towel!! (Yes really, they went there!!).

The note ended with a Happy Thanksgiving – remember that this is a Canadian subscription box.

Everything in the box!

Juicy Bamboo Natural Facial Cleansing Cloths:   The information card specifically pairs this with the dry shampoo for days you don’t have time to shower.

Freeman’s Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask: I love this individual size for college students specifically because it’s fun to try and you won’t risk the entire thing going bad.

Martin’s Crispy Apple Chips

Nature’s Path Love Crunch – Dark Chocolate Crunch

Pür Gum – Cinnamon

Two healthy snacks plus some nice spicy gum! Nature’s Path is Canadian but they do sell in the US. This is sort of like a KIND bar – and I love it!

CANADIAN CANDY! I was looking at this photo – my husband took this one – and just thought to myself OMG all care packages should include Canadian candy.  It really is so much tastier and I absolutely adore Cadbury.

Aquis Long Hair Towel ($23.41 CAD)  and the promised towel, perfect for cleaning up after a long day of studying or for escaping interstellar apocalypse.

I love this brand of towel – it works amazingly well – and the fact that they sent the long hair towel! This microfiber towel really works and will shorten your drying time amazingly well.

Reviver Dry Clothes Deodorant Sample – I am 38 years old and I admittedly recycled pants this morning. These are great for the college years, especially when you don’t have the time to plan your recycling the night before so you can douse your clothes in Febreze.

Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo: I say this every time – if I had dry shampoo in college it would have totally changed my life. Because back in the day we just pretended that our hair was ok.

This was a great box and I really enjoyed it! I love seeing the boxes for college students – although there is a lot of overlap between that population and regular adults, it just seems like a simple item can be way more awesome for them. I didn’t expect the humorous theme – and that they would implement it with a high end absorbent microfiber towel.  I didn’t do a total price breakdown on this box – but the towel itself covered almost the entire price of the box, and I’m estimating the value at $40-$45 CAD. Great value, fun, and absolutely curated for the needs of college students. A+!
