Amazon Men’s Grooming Sample Box Review – June 2017


This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

From time to time, Amazon releases certain sample boxes for Prime Members. The Men’s Grooming Box is filled with items that are “grooming essentials to keep you looking sharp.” Items include razors, face and body washes, deodorant, shampoo, and more. Plus, you’ll get the cost of the box back as a credit to use on qualifying men’s grooming items (a list of these items can be found via the Amazon Men’s Grooming Sample Box page).

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

The Box: Amazon Grooming Box

The Cost: $9.99 (Get $9.99 back in credit a week after it ships)

The Products:

  • Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo – 1.7 fl oz
  • Cetaphil Men Daily Face Cloths – 1 count
  • AXE Antiperspirant Stick for Men, Phoenix – 0.5 oz
  • TheraBreath Dentist Recommended Fresh Breath Oral Rinse – 3 fl oz
  • Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash – 1.8 fl oz
  • Gillette Mach3 Razor – 1 count
  • Dove Men+Care Shampoo and Conditioner – 1.8 fl oz
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash Regular – 0.16 fl oz
  • Colgate Total Advanced Whitening Gel Toothpaste – 0.75 oz

And in case you missed any of the other free-after-credit boxes, check out all the Amazon Sample Boxes!

This box sent samples of day-to-day necessities. Most are from well-known brands, but there were a few new items for me!

It comes with a little “thank you” card with some instruction on how to redeem your credit.

Colgate Total Advanced Whitening Gel Toothpaste – 0.75 oz – Value $.47

The first item is a sample bottle of Colgate Advanced Whitening toothpaste.

This is the typical minty gel toothpaste with some whitening bonuses.

TheraBreath Dentist Recommended Fresh Breath Oral Rinse – 3 fl oz – Value $1.41

The second item is a mouthwash/oral rinse from TheraBreath.

This stuff was interesting because it didn’t have any taste to it – I expected a minty mouthwash type taste, but it had no taste whatsoever. That being said – it did help freshen my breath.

AXE Antiperspirant Stick for Men, Phoenix – 0.5 oz – Value $.65

You’ll get a little Axe deodorant stick.

This is the ‘Phoenix’ scent, and could be good for a weekend away!

Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo – 1.7 fl oz – Value $.94

Again, another well-known brand – you’ll get a little Head & Shoulders shampoo.

It’s basic ‘Classic Clean’ scent for the shampoo – so you kind of know what you’re getting here.

Dove Men+Care Shampoo and Conditioner – 1.8 fl oz – Value $.73

You’ll get two Dove products. Dove is kind of my go-to when it comes to the basic brands for everyday items.

The first item is a sample size of shampoo + conditioner. I find that Dove works really well and I always know what to expect!

Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash – 1.8 fl oz – Value $.55

The second Dove item is a body and face wash with the same Minerals + Sage as the hair product.

These two bottles are all you need for the shower on a weekend away!

Gillette Mach3 Turbo Razor – Value $8

With these sample box, the typical hero item of the box is a razor, which typically covers the cost of the box itself.

The Mach3 Turbo features Turbo cutting blades and a lubrication strip.

Cetaphil Men Daily Face Cloth – Value $.24

This is a daily face wash cloth from Cetaphil. These are great for on-the-go, and I find them to be an absolute necessity for me and my oily skin!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash Regular – 0.16 fl oz – Value ~$.20

The final sample is a packet – so it’d be a one-time use sample – but this facial wash is small enough that you’ll only get one use anyways.

This face wash is made with tea tree oil and has a cooling feel to it – it’s recommended for use with blemish-prone skin.

Verdict: My value calculations add up to $13.19 in sample grooming products. But, with Amazon sample boxes, you get the amount of money spent on the box back as store credit towards the purchase of products within the same category – so you’re really getting all of this free if you plan on buying these products from Amazon! My favorite part of this box – it seems like the perfect purchase, and all you’ll need (besides a toothbrush) for a weekend or a few days away – and it arrives super-fast with Prime shipping!

What do you think of the Amazon Grooming Box?

  1. You got your grooming box with Prime shipping? I’ve never gotten any of these Amazon boxes with Prime shipping. This one shipped the day after I ordered it and arrived 5 days later. Same with the women’s beauty box.

    I did get my credit the day it shipped, though. In the past that has always taken longer.
