Birchbox Man April 2018 Review

Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man

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!

Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man

Kiehl’s Body Fuel Wash 1 fl oz. – Estimated Value $3.20 (buy a 2.5 fl oz. bottle for $8)

This body wash smells amazing and really did the trick of helping me get clean. The smell, I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s some type of mint, which I usually love to wash with my day-to-day products. The best part about this body fuel wash though is that its an all-in-one, so you can wash your hair, face, and body with just one product!  This one is a winner and I can see myself buying this in the future.

Birchbox Man

Brickell Charcoal Face Wash, 15 ml – Estimated Value $1.58 (buy a full-size bottle for $25)

I’ve always been curious to try a charcoal face wash, so this was another win for me in this month’s box! The wash didn’t leave my face dry AT ALL during or after use, which is a problem I run into quite frequently when trying new face washes. If you’re curious to try a new face wash, I suggest you giving this one a try – it really did a nice job of helping me feel clean!

Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man

Cliff Original Pomade, .25 fl oz. – Estimated Value $2.50 (buy a 2 oz. tin for $19.99)

This pomade did a nice job overall when styling my hair; it didn’t leave it feeling too sticky or gooey, which is a problem I think many of us run into.  I also appreciate that it did a nice job of keeping its hold, while still giving my hair some overall texture, which is a big bonus for me. I don’t see myself buying this product in the future, as I’ll probably stick with my current product hair wax.

Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man

V76 by Vaughn Hydrating Shampoo, .23 oz. sample – Estimated Value $0.55 (buy an 8 oz. bottle for $19)

V76 by Vaughn Hydrating Conditioner, .23 oz. sample – Estimated Value $0.73 (buy an 6 oz. bottle for $19)

This shampoo and conditioner combo did a really great job of washing and keeping my hair silky smooth after my first wash! The smell is very “clean” but not overly scented, which I appreciate, as I’m pretty sensitive to overly scented products. I can definitely see myself buying this in the future in full-size bottles – this stuff is great!


Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man

Oars + Alps Cleansing Wipes, 2 pack – Estimated Value $2.29 (buy a box of 14 for $16)

I love an on-the-go product, so this was another win for me in this month’s box. These face wipes smell really fresh and are perfect for after the gym wipes (if I’m in a hurry) or just to rinse my face off during the day if I’m feeling a little grimy. I’ve never heard of this brand before but I can definitely see myself buying more of these in the future.

Birchbox Man

Marvis Toothpaste, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $2.33 (buy a travel size tube for $6 or a full-size tube for $10.50)

Marvis toothpaste is my absolute favorite, but little on the pricey end, so getting a tube in this month’s box was a really nice treat for me! The toothpaste is super minty and leaves my mouth feeling so fresh and clean every time. If you like overly minty things like myself, you have to give this stuff a try!

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 $13.18, 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:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You aren’t guaranteed to receive the same samples I did in my box, but sign up here if you’d like to test out new samples!

Coupon – For a limited time, use code COZYFEET to get a free pair of Bombas Ankle Socks (a $12 value!) when you subscribe. Or, use code MEN54 to save 10% off a 6-month subscription! And don’t forget to add a free mystery sample pack!

Value Breakdown: At a box price of $10, you are paying approximately the following per item:

  • Kiehl’s Body Wash: $2.43
  • Brickell Face Scrub: $1.20
  • Cliff Hair Pomade: $1.90
  • Vaughn Shampoo: $0.42
  • Vaughn Conditioner: $0.55

  1. I enjoy my (Women’s) Birchbox sub and have been thinking to order the Men’s box for my teenage sons so they can explore new products as well. I wish that the Men’s box had a bit more estimated value compared to the monthly sub cost though.

    • Received a great discount code and signed up for a yearly subscription. It will be fun to see if my older teenage – early 20’s year old sons enjoy discovering some new products as much as I enjoy my Women’s sub box from Birchbox.

      I definitely will be watching for the monthly Birchbox Men’s reviews and comparing the box my boys receive verses the box that the MSA receive. It is always enjoyable to read the detailed monthly reviews and comments.
