Luxury Barber Subscription Box Review – January 2015
The Luxury Barber Box is a monthly subscription, created to allow men to gain exposure to the largest variety of grooming products possible. Their box allows you to experiment with new scents and formulas to figure out what matches your preferences. Additionally, every subscription plan allows you a percentage-off site discount to order full-size products.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Everything comes individually wrapped like this in the package – this packaging definitely helps it feel luxurious!
The Subscription: The Luxury Barber
The Cost: $29.99/monthly (plus you get a 10% site discount), $27.99/month with 6-month plan (plus a 15% site discount), or $25.99/month with an annual subscription (plus a 20% site discount). All with free shipping.
The Products: Over 10 products each month, including a full-size product, from various grooming categories plus a full size product showcasing their Brand of the Month.
Ships to: worldwide
This is the info card included in the box. I like how much detail they offer for each item. The card also includes the cost for full-size orders of the items.
Bold For Men Dry Shave Gel – . 34 oz, value: $1.43
Luxury Barber Flushable Towelettes – 10 pack
This dry shave gel is a clear gel designed to be used without water. Letting it sit for 30 seconds pre-shave helps to soften the hair and prepare for a better shave.
These towelettes are not listed on the info card, and they make an 11th item to the box – I think they’re a bonus item.
I wanted to show that, unfortunately, one of the towelettes in my box was open. It’s not a huge deal to me, but I’d make sure to check each towelette before use for sanitary reasons.
Stirling Soap Company Ozark Mountain Shave Soap – value: $2?
Manly Man Body Bar Soap- Crisp Bay Rum – value: $2?
Neither of these soap samples have weights listed, so I’m guessing a bit at their value, based on their full-size costs. I actually think that both of these soaps smell really nice – especially the Soapy Bathman one.
Lord Blades 10 Pack – $4
Game Day Aftershave Soothing Balm – .5 fl oz, value: $7.28
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion – .17 oz, value: $6.56
No one in my family uses razors that use these blades – these will be swapped or passed along to a friend.
Dr. Brandt is a really well-known and high-end skincare company. I was excited to see this brand in the box! The microdermabrasion skin exfoliant is a popular item, too. I’m looking forward to trying it. I’m generally not a fan of foil samples, but considering that this small amount is still worth $6.56, I’m okay with it.
Revivogen Pro Conditioner – 2 fl oz, value: $4.17
Regenepure DR – 4 fl oz, value: $15?
I think hair treatments are a really great inclusion in this box. They tend to be costly, and it’s great to try something like that out before committing to a full-size. This one, specifically, is for thinning hair.
Stirling Orange Pre-Shave Oil – 1 oz, value: $9
Baxter Super Close Shave Formula – .5 fl oz, value: $1.13
This pre-shave oil helps relieve irritation and protect against nicks and cuts.
The Baxter shave formula also helps to create a protective barrier between skin and razor, and helps to moisturize even after shaving.
Verdict: All in all, I’m really happy with this Luxury Barber Box. I like the variety of products, as well as the packaging of the box and portions of most of the samples. I was also happy with a lot of the brands and value to this box. Everything adds up to ~$52.57!
