Birchbox Man March 2018 Review
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!
Now, let’s take a look inside!
V76 by Vaughn, 1 fl oz. – Estimated Value $3.80 (Buy a 5 fl oz. bottle for $19)
This shaving cream did a nice job overall! I look for 3 components when picking a good shaving creme: 1. It helps me not cut myself (I’m very clumsy) – 2. It moisturizes, leaving my skin soft after shaving – 3. It smells good! After testing this creme out from Vaughn, this hits all of my requirements and then some! It receives extra points because it smelled so good compared to my day-to-day shave creme – This one is a winner!
Assassin Exfoliating Scrub by Billy Jealousy, .3 fl oz. – Estimated Value $4.41 (Buy a 1.7 fl oz. jar for $25)
This exfoliating scrub is probably one of the nicest I’ve ever used! I could instantly feel my skin getting a deep clean during and especially after use. The smell is also great on this – it’s like a sweet almond that was very calming. I don’t typically use an exfoliator all that often, but I may have to splurge and buy this one because I think I’m hooked!
Riviera Eau de Toilette by English Laundry, .06 fl oz. – Estimated Value $1.34 (Buy a 3.4 fl oz. bottle for $76)
I’m pretty particular with my colognes and this one just didn’t do it for me. It was a little too “musky” for my liking and nothing that I could see myself using in the future. It wasn’t by any means a bad smell, just not something I would wear myself.
Hanz de Fuko Scheme Cream, .5 oz?. – Estimated Value $2? (Buy a 2 oz. jar for $19.50)
There was no marking on the container, so the size and estimate listed above are estimates.
This cream did not work for me or my hair. From the smell to the texture, I didn’t love how it made my hair feel or look. I typically go for a more messy look and this just didn’t do that for my hair. If you have more wavy hair, I think this product would be better suited for you.
Lucky Bastard Lip Balm, .15 oz – Retail Value $8.00
This is probably my favorite item in the box this month! I always have a chapstick on hand, so I’m always happy to receive them, especially when they’re a brand I’ve never heard of. The quality is very high on this brand but so is the price, so if I was going to buy this on my own, it would be a bit of a splurge compared to my $3 chapsticks. If you love menthol chapstick like myself, I suggest you giving this a try if you have the chance!
Verdict: I love sampling products and building up a little sample supply, especially when I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting products! The estimated value received in this month’s box was $19.55, 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.

- Exfoliating Scrub: $2.26
