Birchbox Man Subscription Box Review – October 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 the FXX show The League.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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 that details each item included in your box for that month.
True Utility Framework Mini – Value $17.99
My husband was happy with this being his lifestyle item of the box this month. It’s pretty well designed too: “This open-framed multitool includes a bottle opener, a can opener, a knife, a saw, an awl, a file, three screwdrivers (Phillips and two sizes of flat-head), and spring-assisted needle-nosed pliers, which double as wire cutters.”
Ursa Major Face Balm – Bonus Samples Value $2
Vasanti Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser – 20 ml Value $3.20
Ursa Major is one of my favorite men’s natural skincare brands, so I’m always happy to see it in a box even if the samples are tiny. (The card lists these samples as bonus).
And I’ve tried the Vasanti exfoliator before and really liked it, so I’m guessing this facial cleanser will be great too.
das boom industries Everything Wash – 1 oz Value $3
Basics For Men by Beckman Ultimate Tough Skin Relief – .25 oz Value $.50
Both of these samples smell good and I know they will get used. The Ultimate Tough Skin Relief is sort of a mix between a lotion and a balm – and it absorbs quickly into the skin with a matte finish.
Atelier Cologne – Sample Value $2
Cologne/Perfume samples are never popular in subscription boxes for us, but at least with Birchbox you can request to minimize how many you receive each year in your profile.
Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $29. It’s on the lower end of values for Birchbox Man, but the True Utility tool is a win for us, and the other samples will be used, so we definitely got our money’s worth. (Plus I’ll review all these items on Birchbox to earn 60 points ($6 to use in the Birchbox shop).
