Naadam Cashmere Speer Beanie – Value $50

This item is the reason I picked the Arctic Explorer box for my husband this month – a $50 cashmere beanie! Of course, once we got it, I noticed that the fabric composition is 70% acrylic, 30% cashmere. A little bit of a letdown! It’s still a really nice, soft beanie, but nothing super special that I would spend $50 on. (But I guess that’s OK since it came in a $20 box!)

English Laundry Arrogant Cologne – 2 ml Value $2.70

I can’t really complain about fragrance samples this month since I knew I was getting this with the curated box! I’m not sure if it is a scent my husband will like, though.

Clinique Charcoal Face Wash – 1 oz Value $3

This facewash is fragrance-free, and I feel like charcoal seems to be a very trendy ingredient in cleansers lately!

das boom Everywhere Lotion in Denali – 1 oz Value $3

Das boom is one of my husband’s favorite brand discoveries from Birchbox Man. (He loves the West Indies soap). And I love the scents too! This one is a blend of juniper, pine and cedar and it smells fantastic!

birchbox-man-dec-2015-face-cream

Jao Brand Face Creme – .4 oz Value $12

Normally I’m not a fan of foil packet samples in subscription boxes, but I’m loving this packaging design! The face creme itself has a lightweight formula, with a bit of a citrus scent.

 

Verdict: This box has a value of about $71. I think that’s great for a $20 box, and with the exception of the cologne, I know my husband will use everything in this box (unless I take an item or two for myself!)

What did you pick for the December 2015 Birchbox Man box?

My boyfriend LOVES Das boom too thanks to Birchbox! He got a sample of it in summer of 2014 or so and has asked for it from “Santa” for the past two years. 😀 Thankfully, I love it too.
