Birchbox Man is a monthly grooming and lifestyle subscription box for men. Each month, you’ll receive 3-4 sample size items to try along with another lifestyle item that you can select. The selection process opens about a month before shipping and, typically, allows you to pick 1 of 3 selection items.

Birchbox Man is now split into two options – Birchbox Man Plus and a new $10 version, Birchbox Man – Check out the March 2018 $10 option from Rob’s recent review.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

May 2018 Birchbox Man Plus Review

This month’s box featured a few firsts for Birchbox Man.

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!

Modern Made Man Card Multi Tool – Value $18

For your Birchbox Plus subscription, you’ll be able to select a product every month from a monthly selection process – here were May’s selection options.

This little multi-tool can be used to comb your hair and pop open a cold drink – and, of course, it’s the size of a credit card so you can easily take it on-the-go.

The little card lists out all of the features as well.

GLO Science GLO Teeth Whitening Vial – Value $8 (based on $24 3-pack)

This is a first for my Birchbox Man delivery – it’s an on-the-go one0time use teeth whitening vial. You can use this daily to erase stains on the spot – and you don’t need to use any types of strips.

Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads – Value $3.60 (based on $18 5-pack)

The other first-time item for me is this collagen eye pad. I see Liz trying these out for other boxes all the time, but I never really expected it in any of my boxes! These use collagen and hyaluronic acid to help with lines and puffy eyes.

Anthony Shower Sheets – Value $2.50 (based on $15 12-pack)

Now, these are an item that I’m used to getting – and I use them all of the time. These wipes are used on-the-go for your entire body – but I do tend to use them mostly on my face in the morning.

Billy Jealousy Sake Bomb Body Moisturizer – Value $.56 (based on $36 full-size price)

Collagen makes another appearance in this Billy Jealousy body moisturizer. I typically don’t like that slick feeling of a lotion of moisturizer, but this didn’t have a lot of that!

Hercules Man Mykonos Eau De Parfum – Small Sample – Full-Size value is $155

The last item is a cologne sample. I’m not a cologne person, but this one was a little on the side of a scent that I could put up with 🙂

Verdict: The samples were a bit all over the place this month, but most were misses for me. But, I do like the add-on that I choose, and that combined with the little shower sheets allows me to break even which is sometimes the risk with a subscription.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The June window is now open – 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.

COUPON – Score a free pair of Bombas socks (we’ll surprise you with the style and color) when you subscribe with code COZYFEET
