Birchbox Man Subscription Box Review – March 2015
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!
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
English Laundry Royal Aqua Cologne – Sample Value $1.50
Davines MOMO Shampoo – 2.5 oz Value $3
My husband doesn’t wear cologne, so I’m never too excited about getting fragrance samples in this subscription, but it is a nice fresh scent.
I like the Davines brand a lot, and this shampoo has a unisex scent which I appreciate. The sample size is generous too – perfect for the 3 oz or less air travel rule.
Skullcandy Ink’d Earbuds – Value $16
At $16 I’m not expecting great sound quality for these earbuds, and based on the reviews on Birchbox that seems to be the consensus. These will be a good backup pair of earbuds.
Do The Right Thing Foil Packet Sampler – Value $1? (Bonus item)
Parlor Reworkable Hair Paste – .5 oz Value $4
I never like when a Birchbox includes both a fragrance sample and a foil packet in one box, but I was hoping this sampler would count as three separate items to review. (You get 10 points ($1) for each item you review on Birchbox). Unfortunately I only get to review the Dear Matt lotion sample, but I guess I can’t complain since this is a bonus item. (Birchbox guarantees 4-5 items a box).
This hair paste smells amazing and is another great unisex product. (AKA I’m stealing this one for myself).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $25.50 – probably the lowest value Birchbox Man box we’ve ever received. I’m OK with having one low value box every year or so, so that’s not a big deal to me – in general I’d say our Birchbox Man boxes have values of at least $40 or more. And at least the Parlor Hair Paste is a great discovery this month!
What did you get in your March Birchbox Man box?
