This is a review for the Raptor box. The theme for April is Spring Clean, Study Clean.



Turkish Towel (~$15)
I always laugh when I receive Turkish towels in subscription boxes. They seem to be the "item of the moment", with at least 6 boxes (that I know of) sending them out over the past year. I spent more than 3 weeks in Turkey last October, and I brought back 5 towels of my own. This one from Student Velocity isn't the nicest one I've seen or purchased, but it still does the trick. Similar towels of this size, knit, and thickness sold for $5-10 in Turkey.

Glade Ultra Air Freshener ($1.98)
For on-the-go freshness, you can keep this pocket sized air freshener in your desk or your school bag.

This toothpaste is sulfate and fluoride free, and made with xylitol, lemon, and tea tree extracts.  

Integra Correction Tape ($2.95)
As part of the "Study Clean" theme, correction tape is included to keep your notes scribble free so they're easier to read while you study.


Aura Cacia Cheering Foam Bath ($3.99)
This refreshing blend of pure tangerine and sweet orange essential oils will perk you up and revitalize the mind.

Sea Snax Grab & Go Chipotle ($2.49)
This roasted seaweed snack pack is perfect for study time. Clean snacking!

Primal Strips Meatless Vegan Soy Jerky ($2)
These strips are a clean alternative to traditional beef jerky snacks. I avoid soy so I won't be trying this one, but vegans and vegetarians will appreciate it.

Let's Go Nuts Fruit & Nut Bar (~$2)
I can't find this online, but it's a fruit and nut granola bar with a Greek yogurt drizzle on top.


Cadbury Creme Egg (Bonus for April)
Leftover Easter chocolate is always a treat!

The April Student Velocity box included nine items, with a retail value around $36 Cdn. The "clean" theme is a good one, and they found products to help you clean yourself and your space, to help you eat clean, and to help you keep your studying neat and clean. It's a great end to the school year! 

Since Student Velocity meant for students, they only ship 8 boxes a year - 4 per semester. April is the last box for this school year. If you are a month to month subscriber, your subscription will automatically be suspended as of May. You will be billed again around the start of August for the "Back to School" box, which should ship around August 24th. Also of note - Student Velocity is planning on doing a special edition one-off beach themed box in July. This will not be part of the subscription and will be a one-time purchase add-on. Keep an eye out on their social media channels for news and updates! 

Interested in trying Student Velocity for yourself or as a gift? You can save 10% off your order using promo code BOXADDICT10 at checkout. Code is valid for new subscribers only.
