Birchbox Man Subscription Box Review – September 2014
Birchbox Man is a monthly grooming and lifestyle subscription box for men. Their lifestyle items tend to be formal (think ties, cufflinks, etc), so keep that in mind when subscribing!
This month Birchbox Man collaborated with Bonobos.
The Subscription Box: Birchbox Man
The Cost: $20 a month ($16.25 a month with annual subscription)
COUPON: Use coupon code BBPLUS100 to get an extra 100 Birchbox points when you sign up (equivalent to $10 to spend in the shop)
The Products: Men’s grooming and lifestyle products.
Ships to: US only
Each box comes with a card that details each item included in your box for that month.
Dear Clark Shampoo – 1 oz Value $3
Hue Pomade – .5 oz Value $7
(These samples are pretty small so I added a quarter to the photo to show scale). The Dear Clark shampoo is made with organic and natural ingredients, and safe for color-treated hair. I might steal it, but I think my husband will like it too. It does have a very strong natural scent though!
Field Notes 3 Pack with Pens – Value $12
We get a lot of notebooks in subscription boxes, but I think my husband will use these – he liked a Field Notes notebook from another subscription box.
SmartSkin A27 Anti-Aging Eye Cream – .16 oz Value $40
I’m surprised that this little sample is worth so much! (The full size version retails for $125). I know my husband will have no interest in eye cream so I will be using this sample!
Bonobos Anchor Chief Pocket Square – Value $42
This is another very nice item my husband would never use. (I wish there was a way to completely opt out of the more formal items Birchbox Man sends. We filled out the survey, but it doesn’t seem to do much good besides not sending him shaving items since he has a beard).
Verdict: We paid $20 for this box and received about $104 worth of items. To be honest, when I first looked at the box contents I would not have guessed it was such a high-value box. My husband won’t use all the items, but I’ll use the eye cream which should make this box worth it for us. And if you have any ideas for how I can use the pocket square let me know!
What did you get from Birchbox Man this month?
