This month’s theme was “Go Get ‘Em” and featured a few more items for on-the-go.
Each delivery comes with an information card that details the items in your box. One thing to note – the values on this card represent the full-size values – I’ll break down the values based on ounces for each item!
Each month, Birchbox Man allows you to select one lifestyle item for your upcoming box. Once again, I thought I’d go for something a little different and decided to try the hat.
This looks and feels like an old-timey baseball cap. It’s made with wool and cotton – even the brim is super flimsy. I didn’t think I’d be a good look for me, but Liz swears it doesn’t look funny when you’re actually wearing it.
Anthony Facial Scrub – Value $4.50 – based on full-size price
What you’re seeing here is my new favorite facial scrub!
This removes dirt and dead skin while having the greatest scent ever. You know the smell of the orange Tic-Tacs? This is that. You’re rubbing the scent of orange Tic-Tacs into your face – for me, that’s a positive thing.
Brickell Men’s Products Charcoal Face Wash – Value $3.12 based on full-size price
The other product I tried right before the Anthony scrub was this face wash from Brickell.
This is a green liquid – it has all kinds of scents too – from peppermint to green tea – it was all over the place. It worked well, and the aloe was definitely soothing.
Marlowe No. 123 Men’s Facial Moisturizer – Value $.75 based on full-size price
This is a moisturizer that I’m still working on a full-size version of, so I’m happy to have just a little bit more once that’s out.
If you’re looking for a basic moisturizer with not a lot of scent – this is definitely a good choice. It does exactly what it says!
Blackbird Anemone – Sample Size – Full-Size $88
This month includes a fragrance. I typically shy away from these, but I really enjoy this scent – I sprayed some on this morning and got the Liz seal of approval – so I only have positive things to say about the fragrance this month!
Jack Black All Over Wipes – Value $1 based on 30-pack
The final item in the box is two packs of wipes. These are great for on-the-go, or like this morning – you wake up and are immediately busy – they’re great to stop for a second and use on your face!
Verdict: I like sampling products and building up a little sample arsenal. I also like picking the lifestyle item – and it’s typically close to the value of the box – so for me, the value is always there with my Birchbox Man subscription. But, you’ll have to be into trying new things and choose a lifestyle item that you really want for you to be satisfied as well.
