You’ll get an info card in your box. This will give a brief description of your items along with the retail value. I’ll be using these values in the review.

FASHION

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0043

Dead Soxy Socks – Value $22

You’ll get a pair of everyday-wear socks.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0044

These socks come from Dead Soxy. They are a 57/38/3/2 Ultra Polyester/Spandex/Nylon/Lycra blend – that all equates to some very comfortable socks.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0046

These are a little thicker than your typical dress socks – but not a bulky winter sock. They’re ideal to include in a Spring box!

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0047

Squareguard + Pocket Square – Value $30

The next item is for your pocket squares. The Squareguard system is out to make pocket squares less of a mess.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0048

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0049

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0050

You’ll get a basic pocket square with one guard.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0051

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0052

Follow the directions and weave it through the guard. Then, simply place the guard in your shirt pocket, leaving just the square showing – you’ll get a perfect pocket square display pretty easily.

Wurkin Stiffs Knot Cuff Links – Value $10

The final fashion item in the spring box is a set of cuff links.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0010

These cuff links are made of only the thread – which is also elastic to make it easier to adjust to the shirt you’re trying to make a bit more stylish.

FITNESS

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0053

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0054

Pedestal Footwear 2.0 Socks – Value $25

The first fashion item in the box is a pair of Pedestal Footwear socks.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0055

These socks feature, what I consider, the most comfortable heel and toe are of any sock. The heel and toe are made with an abrasion-resistant material. So comfortable.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0056

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0057

These socks are made to be worn on their own. They have a grippy bottom to assist in keeping balance during a workout – these will be great for any type of workout or yoga.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0058

The first thing I did after putting these on was to go to their website to see if these existed without the grippy bottom for everyday wear! But, sadly, no – they only have the grippy bottom – either way, I’ll be wearing these around the house as much as possible!

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0059

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0060

Sling Shot Grippy Hip Circle – Value $25

This is made to be worn around your thighs to add some movement resistance for a quick workout or to warm up before a long workout.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0061

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0062

It’s a very strong and flexible material to really give resistance but allow for maneuverability.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0038

Blenderbottle Prostak – Value $14

The final fitness item in the spring box is a blender bottle for your shakes.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0039

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0040

It has multiple compartments to separate supplements for pre and post workout.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0041

You can easily stack it all together to create a very portable supplement and shake station for your workout routine.

GROOMING

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0020

Duke Cannon Solid Cologne – Value $25

Whenever I had receive solid cologne in the past, it’s been in a small, portable tub. But this one is BIG – like Altoids container big – and smells amazing.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0021

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0022

I prefer a solid cologne to any type of spray – so this is perfect for me. This is a 1.5 oz tin of the ‘Redwood’ scent – and the scent is just fantastic.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0023

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0025

Duke Cannon Big American Bar Of Soap – Value $9

There is a second Duke Cannon item – it’s a 10 oz bar of soap – it’s HUGE!

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0026

This soap is going to be perfect for morning showers. It’s got a minty scent that is sure to give you a little wake-up call.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0011

Manready Mercantile Hand Salve – Value $10

The last grooming item is some hand slave for dry/cracked hands.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0012

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0013

I’m loving every grooming item this month – and this is no different. It has a pleasant scent and really softens your hands up!

TECH

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0031

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0033

iMergency Stick-On Rechargeable Battery Pack – Value $20

The only tech item in the spring box is a portable battery for your smartphone.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0034

This charger is very small compared to most portable batteries that I’ve seen. These batteries are the same width as an iPhone 5s and less than 2 inches tall.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0035

It comes with some adhesive strips to allow you to stick it on your phone.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0036

It also comes with the charge cables you’ll need for your smartphone.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0032

These are made to fully hold its charge while not in use, and recharge in 60 minutes.

FOOD

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0027

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0030

Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips – Value $4

There are 3 snacks this month – the first is a bag of Kool Ranch kale chips.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0028

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0029

These are so tasty! I typically like kale chips, so it’s not a surprise that I like these – but I found the Kool Ranch flavor to really pop – they’re delicious.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0014

RXBARs – Value $3

RXBAR is already a known commodity in our house – these are some of our favorite bars.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0016

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0017

The bars are made from simple ingredients – they even list them out on the front of the packaging. No added sugar also makes for a much healthier bar on-the-go. And the taste – A+!

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0006

Run Gum – Value $2

The last item of the box is Run Gum.

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0007

Mens-Health-Spring-March-2017-0008

This gum has added B-Vitamins, taurine, and caffeine to give you a boost of energy while chewing your gum.

Verdict: This box adds up to a $199 value – that’s amazing for the $89 price tag! I’ve been loving this box for the past two quarters – and I love the spring box just as much. I love trying new items, but also getting essentials from brands that I might not know. If you’re looking for a FabFitFun/Popsugar style box for men – this is as close as it gets – and it’s been a blast for every review I’ve done!
