ByEric CadmanDec 5, 2016 | 1 comment


Every once in a while, Amazon offers sample boxes for Prime members. The Amazon Grooming Box is geared towards men and was released to Prime member on Black Friday 2016 weekend.

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


The Box: Amazon Grooming Box

The Cost: $9.99 Prime Member Exclusive

The Products:

  • Gillette Mach3 Turbo Razor
  • Cetaphil Men Daily Face Cloth
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
  • Head & Shoulders Dandruff Shampoo, Classic Clean
  • AXE Antiperspirant Stick for Men, Phoenix
  • Colgate Total Advanced Whitening Gel Toothpaste

Plus, received $9.99 in Amazon credit a week after shipping. Credit is available for select products shipped and sold by Amazon.

Ships: Worldwide.




These sample boxes are available for Prime Members only! Here are the details on the box:

  • For a limited time, buy this sample box for full price and receive an equivalent credit for select products shipped and sold from Amazon.com.
  • A week after your product ships, you will receive an email with instructions on how to use your credit
  • Limit one box per customer. Sample box is available for Prime members only



Gillette Mach3 Turbo Razor - Value $5 on Amazon

The only full-size item in the box is this Gillette mach3 Turbo razor.



It's got 3 blades plus a moisturizer strip.


Cetaphil Men Daily Face Cloth - 1 Count Sample

As someone with skin on the oily side, these face wipes are always super useful to me. I'm a fan of these face wipes in particular because there isn't a strong scent and it was big enough to have half the wipe for a second use.


The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash - 1 Count Sample Packet

This is a 5 ml sample packet of Tea Tree Face Wash. Again, as someone with an oily face, I'm always ready to test out face washes from subscription boxes. This has a fresh minty smell that will definitely wake you up - it will pair nicely with the Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner that I've been using from my Bespoke Post Black Box!


Head & Shoulders Dandruff Shampoo, Classic Clean - 1 Travel Size Bottle

This little 1.7 oz bottle is for the shampoo only. It's the classic Head & Shoulders formula, so no real surprises or discoveries here.



AXE Antiperspirant Stick for Men, Phoenix - 1 Travel Size Stick

This stick is .5 ounces of the Phoenix scent. I'm not a big Axe fan - but this is one of the more neutral, fresh, scents.



Colgate Total Advanced Whitening Gel Toothpaste - 1 Travel Size Tube

Finally, the last item is a .75 ounce tube of Colgate toothpaste. It's your standard mint flavor white some whitening.

Verdict: I'm always ready to test new grooming products from a subscription box, and while these are mostly standard brands, I'll still use it all. We just received this, so we're unsure what the credit will be available for (fingers crossed for the Cetaphil face wipes), but I'll definitely be redeeming it - bringing my net cost down to $0!

What did you think of the Amazon Grooming Box? Did you get one?

I got this for an Xmas giveaway so I’m happy you opened yours! I want to keep mine boxed till I decide if I’m going to ship it off elsewhere.
These were such a great deal! Thanks to MSA for the alert or I would have totally missed them.
