Birchbox Man Subscription Box Review – December 2015


Birchbox Man is a monthly grooming and lifestyle subscription box for men.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).


Each month Birchbox Man subscribers can pick their lifestyle item, or go with a curated box (no surprises). This month we opted for the curated Arctic Explorer box.

The Cost: $20 a month ($16.25 a month with annual subscription)

The Products: Men’s grooming and lifestyle products.

Ships to: US only

Each box comes with a card reminding you to go online for more details on your items, and to review them for points to spend in the Birchbox shop!


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!


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?

  1. 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.
