Morgans Subscription Box Review + Free Trial – February 2017


Morgans is a service that sends essential natural products with a one-time purchase or shipped every month. You can also join as a member for a monthly fee, and order products each month at cost (around 75% off retail).

UPDATE: As of late 2017, Morgans has rebranded as Public Goods. They still offer a free membership trial similar to the one we’ve reviewed here, but the appearance of the products and some of the products themselves may have changed.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)



The Subscription Box: Public Goods (previously known as Morgans when this review was written)

The Cost: Access to members-only prices is $59 for one year

COUPON: Use code MYSUBSCRIPTIONPGA to save 25% off your first purchase.

The Products: Your choice of natural grooming products, shipped monthly.

Good to Know: Morgans sends an email when it’s almost time for your next box. You can choose to skip or change your product selection. Pause, skip or cancel recurring deliveries anytime. If you take no action, Morgans will send you the same items you ordered in the previous shipment.


Morgans sent us numerous essentials to try!

Before getting into each item – let me try to explain how the Morgans subscription works.

Morgans gives you 3 different ways to purchase their products.

  1. One-Time Purchase: Simply select the product you want and click ‘Ship Once’ to place your order.
  2. Recurring Monthly Shipment: Select the products you want to receive monthly and click ‘Ship Monthly’. You will pay full price for your selections each month until you unsubscribe.
  3. Membership: Select the products you want and click ‘Pay 75% Less’. From here, you’ll have different options of how to proceed. See Below.

If you choose to become a member, you’ll pay a monthly fee ranging from $8 per month with an annual subscription (the total coast is paid upfront) to $12 per month (paid monthly) until you cancel.

The benefit to becoming a member is that, for the cost of one $12 product, you’ll get every product they have available at about 75% off of what you’d pay without a membership – so your shampoo costs $3.31 per month instead of $12 per month. This will make it easier to stock up on all of their products on a monthly basis, should you choose.

If you buy 2-3+ products a month, the membership cost is worth it – and you can get your first month free, so it’s a low-risk way to try out this brand.

OK – still with me? Here are some of their products.



Moisturizer – 4oz – Cost $12 (Member price: $3.03)

The first item I’ve sampled is their moisturizer. It comes in a pump to easily dispense. Overall, I like the product – it has a fragrance, but it’s just a minimal scent – and it’s done a great job moisturizing my hands.



Soap – 5oz – Cost $6 (Member Price: $2.84)

I love the smell of this soap – there’s a subtle citrus scent.


The soap also includes some moisturizer for added smoothness.



Shampoo – 8oz – Cost $12 (Member Price: $3.31)

This has a very similar citrus scent – it smells like there is a touch of orange. Since Morgans provides one line of products, it makes sense that they’d have a similar scent.



Conditioner – 8oz – Cost $12 (Member Price; $2.91)

You guessed it – same simple and subtle scent to the conditioner. My needs for shampoo and conditioner are basic, so these have been great.



Hand & Body Wash – 8oz – Cost $10 (Member Price: $3.63)

The scent is echoed in the final bath item, the body wash. I like that there is no variation to choose from – if you like it, you like it – it makes it easier for me to buy a product when I don’t have to choose between a ton of different scents.



Deodorant – 2.5oz – Cost $9 (Member Price: $3.49)

The deodorant is almost a mix between a gel and hard deodorant. Again, the scent is the same as your shower products – so you’ll be fully unified post-shower.


Razor Handle – Cost $18 (Member Price; $11.02)

This is really just a one-time purchase – you can add it to you first delivery and remove it from subsequent deliveries. It’s well crafted, with good weight and the wood composite handle gives it a nice classic barbershop look!


Razor Blades – Cost $10 (Member Price: $3.04)

Once you have your handle, you can keep stocking up on a pack of 4 blades each month.


These are standard 3-blade razor blades.



Shaving Cream – 6oz – Cost $12 (Member Price: $3.31)

This is the first product to diverge from that citrusy scent, instead, you’ll find a nice refreshing peppermint – I like it!

Verdict: I like each of the Morgans products I received, although I haven’t used the razor products since I’m a bearded person. My favorite part of Morgans is the removal of choice paralysis. If I need body wash, I order the product called body wash, and so on. That works better with how I shop! As a creature of habit, I tend to stick with products I know I like – so this can be an easy way to ensure that I’m always in stock without even thinking.

  1. I was getting this box for awhile and really enjoyed the simplicity of it. I really only stopped getting it because my husband missed the “fun” smelling stuff. He apparently was using my bath products because he liked the smell.

    I do not know if they still offer it but you could also order toliet paper through them. It was great stuff.

  2. Though the idea is great, some of the ingredients make me raise a brow and the fact that so much is coconut based takes the option of even trying it out of the equation for me.
    The moment I find a sub that has the option of really being coconut-free I wont even think for 2 seconds at membership.

  3. Are these products for men? Or non-gender specific?

    • Hi I’m Morgan from Morgans. These products are gender neutral. Reach our anytime with more questions. [email protected]

    • Non gender specific. 🙂
      – Morgan

  4. @eric, The code VALENTINE is only good for overnight shipping on the valentines gift box.

    • Hi, I’m Morgan fro Morgans. Yes it’s for the gift box. Members get free shipping over $25 anyway.

  5. What the heck is the ‘great moisturizer’ that is listed as an ingredient in the soap? That concerns me a bit…

    • I was just about to comment this! Had to do a double take when reading that “wait what great moisturizer??”

      • Vegetable Glycerin is a great moisturizer. It’s a mistake on these boxes. Sorry about this.

    • Vegetable Glycerin is a great moisturizer. It’s a mistake on these boxes. Sorry about this.

  6. Don’t like the ingredients in any of these products…

    • Id say they are 87 TIMES better than most brands out there!
      “It’s comprised of 87% natural ingredients; we use high quality laboratory ingredients where it makes a healthy and superior product. We never use parabens, synthetic fragrance, sodium lauryl sulfates, phthalates or anything from formaldehyde. We don’t believe in animal testing; all of our products are vegan-friendly and non-GMO. “

    • They actually have pretty great ingredient list and exclude so many bad things!

    • Hi, I’m Morgan from Morgans. Our ingredients are pretty solid. Still, we can always learn and improve. Feel free to email suggestions at [email protected]

  7. When i use the link it doesnt say anything about member access with trial after i click which membership , its just the regular charged monthly membership.

    • Sorry about that – I had updated it with the wrong link – it should work now!

  8. off the membership fee. If your buying at the rate they do the membership fee is the profit minus the cost of shipping

    • Hi Molly – this is Morgan from Morgans. Not sure what you mean. With membership you pay cost prices. Shipping is free over $25.



  9. Eric is funny! You always crack me up! And, btw, I think the moisturizer is a FACE product 😛

    • 🙂 I’m a multi-purpose type of person.

  10. I don’t get this. How are they going to make a profit with this business model?

    • We sell our products at cost. We charge $12 a month membership. All our profit is in that $12. It’s a win win. We make exactly $12 a month per customer. Customers get all our products at true cost.

      • This isn’t a subscription. It’s a public service.

      • Yeah you’re right in a way.
