Each box comes with a fold out sheet detailing the items included and it usually has tips on how to one or more of the items. This month gave tips on growing and maintaining the perfect beard.


Line of Trade gridwax canvas pouch – Value $25

This is the first thing I pulled out of the box, and I immediately asked Liz what product had spilled on it because it looked wet. But, that’s the style – it has a wax finish, which is kind of cool when realizing that it was on purpose! It’s a good size pouch and will fit all the items from this box, and more!


Tweezerman Moustache Scissors – Value $10 on Amazon

I was overly excited for this tweezers. Being a bearded gentleman, an excellent pair of moustache scissors is pretty much a must – and these are getting great reviews on Amazon.

Kent Pocket Comb – Value $10 on Amazon

The tips to maintaining the perfect beard includes that you should comb it regularly. My beard is more wild and caveman-ish. Maybe I should try the comb.


Beard Balm – Value $20 on Amazon

A Bear Balm is another “Never Have I Ever” product for me – until right now. I just used this balm and combed it into my beard. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, but it did make it much softer.

The Mod Cabin amber resin soap – Value $4-5?

This is just a small sample of a full size soap bar. I love the smell, and wish the beard balm smelled like this! It smells like sawdust, and kind of like the wood isle at Lowes. Those smells may not resonate with a lot of people, but I really like it!


Beard Paw BeardWipes – Value $9

These were my least favorite item from the box. Think of a face wash cleanser, but for your beard. I tried this one out, and I don’t really like the smell. It’s tough to tell if it freshened it up though, because I had just put in the balm.

Verdict: This was a really nice discovery box for me! Having never used a balm or wipe made this box fun for me – I get why everyone here loves beauty sample boxes! The value is, as always, great with Bespoke Post and this includes some staples and some new products that I may continue to buy in the future. Overall, it was a win, and fun to review!

  1. They should have used The Mod Cabin’s beard balms as well as their Amber Resin soap. Much better Beard Balm than that Amazon stuff.

  2. My man got this one too – he was not enthusiastic about many of the options that I thought were great, but snapped this one up. He thought the scissors should’ve been a bit oversized to fit meaty man fingers easier, and wished the comb was bigger, but overall he was pleased to get to play with these beard goodies.

  3. So Eric, now that you’ve tried the balm, will you actually use it again? My bearded husband is very unenthusiastic about the idea of putting anything on his beard.

    • Yes. But, it depends on the scent, because you’re smelling it all day. If it was a leather/den/firewood scent, I’d probably do it all the time.
