Birchbox Man is a monthly grooming and lifestyle subscription box for men. Recently, they’ve added a cheaper $10 subscription option for men that excludes the lifestyle item.

All previous reviews are of the lifestyle option subscription – now called Birchbox Man Plus.

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

The Subscription Box: Birchbox Man ($10 option)

The Cost: $10 a month

Coupons:

  • Use coupon code WASHITOFF to get a free face moisturizer, face scrub, and face wash sample trio with a monthly subscription.
  • Use coupon code WARMUP to get a free Alternative Apparel oversized chocolate beanie with a 6-month subscription.

The Products: Men’s grooming and lifestyle products.

Ships to: US only

This was the first time I’ve received the $10 option – and it included a majority of the same items from the Birchbox Man Plus box.

It includes the same style card that you’re used to.

I won’t bore you with the same commentary on the crossover item – you can read all about them on the Birchbox Man Plus review.

But, here’s a value break down of those crossover items:

Kiehl’s Ultimate Body Scrub Soap – Value $7 (based on $15 full-size bar)

This was a brand new item in my $10 box this month – and it’s a great one!

This is an exfoliating bar of soap to help get rid of dead skin – it smells really good and has the perfect texture to keep exfoliating with extended use.

Verdict: All added up, you’re getting $16-17 of value for the $10 version of Birchbox Man. That’s a good value, and a good option if you’re simply looking for product discovery without the need of the lifestyle item. For me, I like the product discovery, but the lifestyle item was always my favorite part of this subscription – so I’ll probably be sticking with the Birchbox Man Plus box, but it’s always nice to have options!

What do you think of the new lower cost option of the October 2017 Birchbox Man subscription?

Birchbox Grooming (formerly Birchbox Man) is a grooming and lifestyle subscription box service. Each box includes a mix of grooming product samples for you to experiment with and figure out if they might work for you. If you do end up liking something, you can resupply with full-size items in the B... read more.

Wow, that review confused me. I spent about 30 seconds trying to figure out why only one of the items was reviewed. Then I decided to actually read, cursed myself for my reading comprehension skills (which may explain some of my standardized testing scores) and proceeded to click the link for your crossover review.

LOL! Same here!
