Birchbox Man February 2018 Review
This month's theme was Pit Stop!
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!
Anthony Glycolic Facial Cleanser, 1 fl oz. - Estimated Value $3.50 (Buy an 8 fl oz. bottle for $28)
I'm typically particular my face washes; new washes tend to leave my face dry and I'm hesitant to try new ones after finding something I like. After trying this new cleanser from Anthony, I am happy to report that I didn't have the issues I usually run into! After washing my face, this didn't leave me feeling dry, and I felt totally clean and fresh. If you have dry skin issues like myself, I suggest you giving this one a try!
Billy Jealousy Combination Code Face Moisturizer, .5 fl oz. - Estimated Value $4.33 (Buy a 3 fl oz. bottle for $26)
Like I said in earlier, I'm hesitant to try new face products as my skin is more on the sensitive side and am hesitant to try new products. I definitely don't have any issues with this face moisturizer from Billy Jealousy, though! This cream is very "light" and isn't overly scented, which is something I really appreciate in all of my skincare products. My favorite part was that after applying this in the morning, my face felt moisturized for the whole day, which was a huge win, especially during this winter weather!
Billy Jealousy Gold Standard 4-in-1 Wash, .5 fl oz. - Estimated Value $1.13 (Buy a 16 fl oz. bottle for $36)
This 4-in-1 wash smells great, especially the papaya, it's nothing like I've ever washed with before and I can definitely see myself using this in the future. My only complaint is that I wish they sent a larger size because this only lasted me one wash and I'm wanting more! Either way, this stuff works great and smells even better!
Level Naturals Bar Soap, 1 oz. - Estimated Value $1.38 (Buy a 5.8 oz. bar for $8)
Unlike the papaya body wash that was very fragrant, I didn't care for the scent of this vanilla + charcoal bar soap. It wasn't bad, just a scent I'd prefer to not wash with. I usually tend to stay away from bar soaps, too, as I feel they leave more of a residue and that's not what I'm looking for when taking a shower! This one was a miss for me.
Hims Multivitamins Supplement Gummies, 10 gummies - Estimated Value $5.33 (Buy a bottle of 30 gummies for $16)
These gummy bear vitamins may be my favorite item in the box! Look how fun and delicious they look:
These gummy vitamins promote healthy hair, nails, and skin, along with supporting nerves and digestion. I already take a multivitamin every day, but they aren't nearly as fun or tasty as these! I think I may have found a new morning multivitamin that basically tastes like candy 🙂
Verdict: I like sampling products and building up a little sample arsenal, especially when I'm always on the hunt for new and exciting products! The value received in this month’s box was $15.67, which exceeds the $10 (+ free shipping!) to receive. I think Birchbox Man does a great job of sending new products that the modern guy should give a shot, especially when you're on the more hesitant side like myself.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: At a box price of $10, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Bodywash: $0.72
- Bar soap: $0.89
- Face Moisturizer: $2.76
- Gummies: $3.40
- Facial Cleanser: $2.23
