GQ Best Stuff Box Fall 2018 Review
The Fall 2018 box features 8 items – with a ton of self-care items!
There’s a little fold-out information card/poster.
On the back, you’ll find details, including the retail price, for all of the items in your box.
This delivery arrived with a bonus coupon, too. This is listed as an item on the card – this gives you $45 in store credit to redeem on Tani Underwear.
Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream – Value $12 (based on $48 full-size value)
The first item is a superfood air-whip moisturizer cream – it’s made with kale, spinach, and green tea and made to be an age prevention moisturizer.
Oribe Crème for Style Conditioning Styler – Value $42
My favorite item in the box is this full-size Oribe styling cream. Since getting my hair cut, my short hair likes to stick up – so I’ve had to start using different products to help keep my hair down – and not only does this Oribe hold my hair so very well, but it smells so great – even Liz was jealous!
BKR Gramercy 1L Water Bottle – Value $38
The other item that Liz had her eye on was this BKR water bottle. These glass water bottles are much easier to clean than plastic – much easier to get into the dishwasher. It’s wrapped with silicone to both protect the glass and to provide a good grip.
Pocket Square Clothing Tie – Value $60.00
What’s more Fall than a floral tie? This tie comes from Pocket Square Clothing – and while it’s a floral print it’s actually pretty subtle which lets it pair with a number of different clothing options.
Harry’s Body Wash – Value $7
Harry’s not only does razors – but also some self-care items, like this body wash. It has a fresh scent and is pretty reasonable if you’re looking to reorder some.
Gold Toe Socks – Value $8
Gold Toe Socks literally have a gold toe – and they are super cozy! They’re a 66% Rayon, 32% Nylon, 2% Spandex blend – thin and breathable like a dress sock, and perfect for the Fall cold.
Cremo Original Shave Cream – Value $8
This is the one item that I really can’t use because I don’t ever fully shave off my beard. What I can say is that this cream has a subtle citrusy scent to it.
My second favorite item in the box is an artisan beard oil from Brother Artisan Pil. It has a fantastic pine-like scent to it. I’ve been using one drop each day and rubbing it in – it’s quick, simple, and smells great.
Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite delivery from GQ so far, but I did discover a few new items that I am just loving from this box – namely, the Oribe styling cream and the Brothers Artisan beard oil. On top of that, the other items, like the BKR bottle, are definitely nice and useable.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? I don’t believe so – they seem to be in waitlist mode for subscriptions at the moment. The FAQ also notes: “The specific box you receive will depend on the date you signed up and how that corresponds with the shipping deadlines of the quarterly boxes. You may contact customer service at: 1-800-999-6536 for the specifics.”
