Birchbox Man September 2013 Review

Birchbox Man is a men’s monthly subscription service for grooming and lifestyle products. My boyfriend has been subscribing for over a year and really likes it – and I’ve been stealing the occasional item from his box every month and I like Birchbox Man too!

Each box comes with a car detailing every item included that month.

Birchbox Man September 2013 Review

Topo Designs Dopp Kit – Value $25

This item alone is worth more than the cost of the box – and it’s really well made! I love the shape and colors of this bag, and I know my boyfriend will use it a lot!

Vitamine and Sea Shave Cream Β Sample – Value $2.50

VitaMan Face and Body Cleanser – 50 mL Value $5.60

This shave cream is vegan and organic!

Hanz de Fuko Modify Pomade Sample – Value $4.37

LUXE City Guide New York – Value $9.99

We’ve been talking about making a trip to New York – this guide will definitely come in handy!

This box also included a free subscription to Men’s Health – Value $10

Verdict: The September 2013 Birchbox Man had a great value – over $55! We paid $20 for this box, and my boyfriend will use everything included, so I’m very happy with the box this month. (If Birchbox ever decides to do a $20 women’s monthly box with lifestyle items, I will sign up in a heart beat. I’m starting to get pretty jealous of the goodies in Birchbox Man each month!)

  1. I received the leather passport case, New York City guide, VitaMan face & body cleanser, ARCONA moisturizer and the sample of Histoires de Parfums 1899 fragrance. I would have switched out the moisturizer for a sample of that face oil. I typically don’t care for scents with a vanilla base, but 1899 is great. Overall, I’m very happy with this box.

  2. My husband just got his in the mail this morning and he was really happy with all of it. He got the passport case and I was super excited about that. I wanted him to get that and use it as a wallet since he has such a hard time buying new things lol. I’ll probably share the body wash, it smells amazing πŸ™‚ He also got the Chicago guide and we’ll probably never use that.

  3. Hello,
    Yep, My BF got everything except the Dopp kit(which I would have stolen!)and instead received a leather passport case(which he loved). I hope you at least got the passport case…

    We got the NYC guide which we will never use
    .If anyone wants mine – I will mail it for free-I hate to see anything go to waste. Did anyone receive a Chicago or UK guide? Just curious. Other than that I am pretty pleased with the products he has gotten. I gave this BB sub as a gift to him- and put him down as mildly advanced as far as products go. I am thinking of changing that request to Expert. Is anyone finding a difference at all, in beginner product status,advanced or expert in far as what they are receiving?

    • I got the Chicago guide. πŸ™‚

    • If you still have the NY guide, I’d love to take it off your hands. I’m going next month! πŸ™‚

      • Hi Rachel,

        Send me your email and I would happy to email a copy(much easier).

        Enjoy your trip!

        • Thanks so much Chelsea! It’s bacongravy4life(at)gmail

          • Sure, thing. I will bring it to work and you’ll get it tomorrow.

            Take care,

          • Hooray! Thanks again Chelsea! I can’t wait to do some planning with your guide! πŸ™‚

  4. How come I didn’t get the Dopp kit
