Birchbox Man May 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!

Birchbox Man May 2018

hims DHT Shampoo2 fl oz. – Estimated Value $2.75 (buy an 8 fl oz. bottle for $11)

I’ve loved all of the products that I’ve tried from hims thus far, so I was very excited to see this shampoo in this month’s box! This shampoo is infused with tea tree oil and it smells absolutely amazing, both during and after the wash. Big bonus for people who are losing their hair, this shampoo has DHT blocking qualities, which helps reduce hair loss! If you like tea tree oil and want to try something new, I suggest you giving this a try.

Proraso Liquid Aftershave Cream, 0.8 oz – Estimated Value $3.76 (buy a 3.4 oz bottle for $16)

This stuff really does the trick and helped reduce razor burn after shaving. I’ve used plenty of aftershaves in my time, but this stuff smells really nice and is more moisturizing compared to others I normally use. For the price of $10 for a full-size bottle, I think I may buy this in the near future!

Blind Barber Pomade, .25 oz. – Estimated Value $2 (buy a full-size container for $20)

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 tend to run into.  The smell is very natural, which I appreciate and overall, I think this is something I could see myself buying more of in the future. I’ve never heard of this brand but they seem to have plenty of other cool products, so I may check those out as well.

Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax, sample size, Estimated Value: $2 (buy a 2 oz. jar for $19.50)

There was no marking of how large the sample size is, so the $2 value is just an estimate.

This wax isn’t something that I’d normally buy in the store (I tend to go for more pomades) but this stuff is pretty good! The smell is very nice and something I’d be happy to support in my day-to-day. After using, my hair wasn’t overly shiny and I honestly didn’t need any hairspray, as this did a really great job of keeping its hold.

Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads, 1 pack – Estimated Value $3.60 (buy a box of 5 for $18)

I’ve always been interested in trying collagen pads, so this was another win for me in this month’s box! I typically have dark circles under my eyes in the mornings and after my first use, I think it really did the trick. I don’t think I’ll use these on the daily, but I think these would be great to have around the house for those days I really need them.

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 $14.11, 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 – LIMITED TIME DEAL: Use code REFRESH to get a free CW BEGGS AND SONS Face Scrub and Vapur Flask 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:

  • Pomade: $1.42
  • Sponge Wax: $1.42
  • Shampoo: $1.95
  • Aftershave Cream: $2.66
