Men’s Health Subscription Box Review – Spring 2017
The Men’s Health Box is a quarterly box from Men’s Health magazine. They set out to include a set of life-improving products that were featured in the magazine. It includes everything from small snacks to the latest in fitness tech.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Men’s Health Box
The Cost: $89.99 + $8 S/H To US
The Products: a mix of fitness, food, tech and grooming products four times a year. The content of each box is selected by Men’s Health editors, represent best-of-class products that have been tested and, in most cases, featured in the magazine.
Good To Know: For the review, I’ll pull the values from the card, but also check some websites for more pricing information.
You’ll get items across 5 categories – Fashion, Grooming, Nutrition, Fitness, and Tech.
You’ll get an info card in your box. This will give a brief description of your items along with the retail value. I’ll be using these values in the review.
Dead Soxy Socks – Value $22
You’ll get a pair of everyday-wear socks.
These socks come from Dead Soxy. They are a 57/38/3/2 Ultra Polyester/Spandex/Nylon/Lycra blend – that all equates to some very comfortable socks.
These are a little thicker than your typical dress socks – but not a bulky winter sock. They’re ideal to include in a Spring box!
Squareguard + Pocket Square – Value $30
The next item is for your pocket squares. The Squareguard system is out to make pocket squares less of a mess.
You’ll get a basic pocket square with one guard.
Follow the directions and weave it through the guard. Then, simply place the guard in your shirt pocket, leaving just the square showing – you’ll get a perfect pocket square display pretty easily.
Wurkin Stiffs Knot Cuff Links – Value $10
The final fashion item in the spring box is a set of cuff links.
These cuff links are made of only the thread – which is also elastic to make it easier to adjust to the shirt you’re trying to make a bit more stylish.
Pedestal Footwear 2.0 Socks – Value $25
The first fashion item in the box is a pair of Pedestal Footwear socks.
These socks feature, what I consider, the most comfortable heel and toe are of any sock. The heel and toe are made with an abrasion-resistant material. So comfortable.
These socks are made to be worn on their own. They have a grippy bottom to assist in keeping balance during a workout – these will be great for any type of workout or yoga.
The first thing I did after putting these on was to go to their website to see if these existed without the grippy bottom for everyday wear! But, sadly, no – they only have the grippy bottom – either way, I’ll be wearing these around the house as much as possible!
Sling Shot Grippy Hip Circle – Value $25
This is made to be worn around your thighs to add some movement resistance for a quick workout or to warm up before a long workout.
It’s a very strong and flexible material to really give resistance but allow for maneuverability.
Blenderbottle Prostak – Value $14
The final fitness item in the spring box is a blender bottle for your shakes.
It has multiple compartments to separate supplements for pre and post workout.
You can easily stack it all together to create a very portable supplement and shake station for your workout routine.
Duke Cannon Solid Cologne – Value $25
Whenever I had receive solid cologne in the past, it’s been in a small, portable tub. But this one is BIG – like Altoids container big – and smells amazing.
I prefer a solid cologne to any type of spray – so this is perfect for me. This is a 1.5 oz tin of the ‘Redwood’ scent – and the scent is just fantastic.
Duke Cannon Big American Bar Of Soap – Value $9
There is a second Duke Cannon item – it’s a 10 oz bar of soap – it’s HUGE!
This soap is going to be perfect for morning showers. It’s got a minty scent that is sure to give you a little wake-up call.
Manready Mercantile Hand Salve – Value $10
The last grooming item is some hand slave for dry/cracked hands.
I’m loving every grooming item this month – and this is no different. It has a pleasant scent and really softens your hands up!
iMergency Stick-On Rechargeable Battery Pack – Value $20
The only tech item in the spring box is a portable battery for your smartphone.
This charger is very small compared to most portable batteries that I’ve seen. These batteries are the same width as an iPhone 5s and less than 2 inches tall.
It comes with some adhesive strips to allow you to stick it on your phone.
It also comes with the charge cables you’ll need for your smartphone.
These are made to fully hold its charge while not in use, and recharge in 60 minutes.
Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips – Value $4
There are 3 snacks this month – the first is a bag of Kool Ranch kale chips.
These are so tasty! I typically like kale chips, so it’s not a surprise that I like these – but I found the Kool Ranch flavor to really pop – they’re delicious.
RXBARs – Value $3
RXBAR is already a known commodity in our house – these are some of our favorite bars.
The bars are made from simple ingredients – they even list them out on the front of the packaging. No added sugar also makes for a much healthier bar on-the-go. And the taste – A+!
Run Gum – Value $2
The last item of the box is Run Gum.
This gum has added B-Vitamins, taurine, and caffeine to give you a boost of energy while chewing your gum.
Verdict: This box adds up to a $199 value – that’s amazing for the $89 price tag! I’ve been loving this box for the past two quarters – and I love the spring box just as much. I love trying new items, but also getting essentials from brands that I might not know. If you’re looking for a FabFitFun/Popsugar style box for men – this is as close as it gets – and it’s been a blast for every review I’ve done!
