The GQ Quarterly subscription is a seasonal subscription box for men from the editors of GQ.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Products: Style, Lifestyle and grooming products selected by GQ Editors
Ships to: Free to the US. (Canada +$30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected. The theme of this box is putting together the perfect date night at home.
Lite+Cycle Urban Forest Candle – Value $45
Blind Barber Watermint Gin Facial Cleanser – Value $18
This candle was one of the first spoilers in the box, and the item I’m most excited about. (I’ve wanted to try this candle line for a while, but the price point has been a deterrent). The candles are made with natural vegetable waxes, cotton wicks, and a high content of 100% pure essential oils. I’m guessing this forest scent may not be for everyone, but I really like it. It has an overall woodsy/herbal scent, with some fennel undertones.
This cleanser has a very refreshing scent with a subtle mint addition. (It is also paraben free!)
Mast Brothers Almond Chocolate – Value $9
Borracha Pearly Wipes – Value $7
My husband and I both called dibs on this chocolate bar as soon as we saw it! It’s made with only a few ingredients: cacao, cane sugar, almonds, olive oil and sea salt. And I love the packaging!
These Pearly Wipes are designed for removing coffee and tea stains, bad breath, etc. I definitely see how this item ties in with the date night theme!
Surfing Photographs From The Seventies Taken by Jeff Divine – Retail Value $40 (On Amazon for $29)
This book was included to “flaunt your cultural prowess” and make sure your coffee table isn’t overlooked in terms of decor. Here is a look inside:
Verdict: Counting the sale price of this book, the value of this box comes to about $108. Moving forward subscribers will have to pay $108 for the box ($100 plus $8 shipping), but for February box the cost was just $100. Even with the full price of the box, the value is about $119, which still feels a little low for a $100 box. If you are looking for a curated box from GQ every season, I’d recommend this box, but not if you are looking to get a high value too.
I do really like the products GQ picks out each month. The presentation/packaging is great, and I’ve found some great new brands too. I think my favorite this month is the candle, but I haven’t tried the chocolate bar yet!
