I’m a fan of the Red Lead soaps, so I was happy to see a brand I’m familiar with in this box!
KIND Oats & Honey with Toasted Coconut Bar – 1.2 oz, value: $.71
Purple Camo Socks from The Tie Bar – value: $8
I love kind bars. They’re naturally gluten-free and free from GMO’s. These socks aremy favorite thing in the box, though – I get to snag these for myself! (I got my value estimation from the single, green pair of camo socks since I couldn’t find the purple camo pair on its own.)
Verdict: I think the Nicholas Black Box is probably my favorite box for men that I’ve tried out. I love the variety; I feel like I see so many grooming-only boxes or more formal kinds of boxes (like SprezzaBox or Birchbox Man), and it’s nice to see that this one has items that may be more widely useful. The value comes out to $13.28, which is less than the cost of the box, so I’m not particularly happy with that value. If the sample sizes were bigger, I’m sure that would be a great step to increasing the overall value of the box.
