Birchbox Man Review – January 2014
Birchbox Man is a monthly men’s subscription box that focuses on grooming and lifestyle products. Some of their lifestyle items can get a little formal, so I always recommend this box for anyone who has to wear suits, etc. for work. (It’s a good box even if you never have to wear formal clothes, but you may end up with cuff links or a bow tie you won’t be using any time soon!)
The Subscription Box: Birchbox Man
The Cost: $20 a month ($16.25 a month with annual subscription)
The Products: Men’s grooming and lifestyle products.
Ships to: US only
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included for that month. This month’s theme is Go Time – making achievable New Year’s fitness resolutions.
Men in Cities Jump Rope – Value $40
This immediately reminded me of gym class, but it is a lot nicer than the ropes we used in elementary school! I think my husband would have preferred one of the other lifestyle items this month (socks, boxers, gloves, or an iPhone case), but we’ll probably use this!
Game Day Pre-Shave Invigorating Scrub – 1 oz Value $11.50
Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer – .5 oz Value $2.50
At first I thought Birchbox had sent a shaving product when my husband’s profile indicates no shaving products, but this Game Day pre-shave is really just a facial scrub. And I guess a little goes a long way, because this one ounce sample is actually half the size of the full-size product!
Reviver Dry Deodorant Wipes (1) – Value $3
Mayron’s Chapstuff – FULL SIZE! Value $14
I may end up stealing this Mayron’s Chapstuff stick, or buying myself one too. It’s made with all natural and organic ingredients and works great. Plus the deodorant-like applicator is great for applying to elbows, knees, any where you have dry skin!
And this dry deodorant wipe will be great to use on my clothes the next time I have to get rid of the bar smell on a coat or something that isn’t easy to wash!
Verdict: We paid $20 for this box and received a little over $70 worth of products! I’m almost always pleased with the new products Birchbox introduces us to, and I usually end up taking some of the unisex items, so this box was a win for me! (If we end up using the jump rope the value will be great for us too).
What did you get in your January Birchbox Man box?
