March 2018 Birchbox Man Plus Review
It looks like they’ve done away with any type of theme for the monthly delivery. With Birchbox Man Plus, you’ll get to choose a lifestyle item and you’ll receive 5 samples to go along with it.
It comes with an information card that lists out all of your items along with their full-size values – I’ll do my best to break these down based on the product sizes sent!
Surf Club New Wave Beanie – Value $22
Each month, you’ll be able to pick a lifestyle item – these are typically valued right at or above the cost of the box! This month, I’ve gone with the Surf Club beanie since it’s still a bit cold out.
It’s 100% acrylic and very soft. It was snowing the day I got this, so I put it right to use – while it was nice and soft, it was still very warm.
18.21 Man Made Wash – Value $1.33 based on the full-size price
The first sample I tried was this 3-in-1 shampoo/conditioner/body wash. It was a bit too much on the cologne smelling side for me to really like, though.
R+Co. Motorcycle Flexible Gel – Value $2.60 based on full-size price
Next, we have a hair gel sample that is one of the highest value samples in the box. I’ve never been a hair gel type of guy, so I can’t speak much to this one other than the scent was minimal, and had that typical hair gel scent.
CW Beggs and Sons Energizing Moisturizer – Value $4.60 based on the full-size price
One of the samples that I really enjoyed was this moisturizer. This is good as an aftershave or just as a daily moisturizer.
PiperWai Natural Deodorant – Value ? ($11.99 for full-size)
There wasn’t any ounce listing present on the sample, so it’s a toss-up for value. Besides that, this was one of the items I was most looking forward to trying. I haven’t had a ton of success with any natural deodorants in the past and while this one worked pretty well, the application was something that I wasn’t a fan of.
Faconnable Eau de Toilette – Value ? ($50 full-size)
Lately, the final sample has been a cologne sample. I don’t really wear cologne, but I also don’t really mind trying it out. Since I’m no cologne connoisseur – they typically fall into two smells – the typical cologne and the more natural/woodsy scents. This one is more towards a typical scent.
Verdict: My samples weren’t great this month – a few hit on items that I’d never use. But, the lifestyle item was great and perfectly timed with the weather – and that item alone was valued higher than the cost, so I’m still pretty satisfied this month.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The March window is still open for a day or two – but the monthly window typically changes around the 12th of the month. But, all sample deliveries vary, so you are not guaranteed the same samples as what you see here.
