Birchbox Man Handsome and Bright Box Review

This limited edition box features 3 wearable items to keep you cozy in the cool weather, 4 self-care items, and a little notebook for on-the-go.

Like all Birchbox shipments, you’ll get an information card that details each item in your box.

Oakland Surf Club Heather Gray Beanie – Value $22 (based on their other beanies)

Let’s start with the wearable items – I think they’re the real highlight of this limited edition box. This beanie is soft, maybe a bit on the thin side, but actually pretty dang warm in the freezing cold weather.

Bombas Calf Socks – Value $12

You’ll get two pairs of Bombas socks – the most timely socks for us cold-weather dwellers were the calf-high socks. I’m giving Bombas another shot – in the past, the honeycomb design actually hurt my foot after wearing them for an extended period of time – but if it weren’t for that, these would be up there with my favorite sock brands.

Bombas Ankle Socks – Value $12

They’ve also sent a pair of ankle-high socks from Bombas for a bit of a sock drawer refresh for all seasons. These have all of the now trademark Bombas features but in the ankle variety.

Boarding Pass NYC Notebook – Value $3.27

You’ll get this little 5×3.5 inch notebook (design do vary). It’s thin and portable if you’re into sticking with handwriting notes.

Brickell Men’s Products No Shine Lip Balm – Value $7.50

One of the most essential cold-weather self-care items has to be lip balm – so of course it is represented in this box. The Brickell balm blends olive oil, vitamin E, and beeswax – and has a bit of minty feel.

Harry’s Face Wash – Value $7

It comes with a full-size face wash from Harry’s. This stuff is definitely invigorating, to say the least – it’s a thicker formula that has a very minty feel when using it.

V76 by Vaughn Energy Body Wash – Value $16

To go with your face wash, you’ll get a full-size body wash from V76 by Vaughn. For me, the body wash was pretty basic – but I’m also totally ok with that.

Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer – Value $15

Winter can definitely wreak havoc on your hands – this limited edition box has you covered with Industrial Strength hand repair. If you love it, they also encourage you to use it on your feet, elbows, and knees as well.

Anthony All-Purpose Facial Moisturizer – Value $30

The final item in the box is a facial moisturizer from Anthony. Birchbox has introduced me to the world of Anthony products, and I end up using them all of the time and love them. I’ve used this already before, and can definitely recommend.

Verdict: My values add up to about $124.77 which is a bit off of the listed retail price of $136.50 – but still great value for the $52 box. I thought they did an awesome job at product curation for this one – and I can see this being a good gift for the holidays.

  1. FYI, now sold out.

  2. Hahah I got ~$125 just from your numbers.

    I like the box for myself but wouldn’t pay that much for it still….

    • Totally missed that moisturizer! Thank you – I’ve updated it, still a little lower value

  3. Eric…..I think your calculator is broke. =)

    • Just my brain…I missed the moisturizer

    • Oh good, it’s not just me! I calculate the cost at about $125 and was wondering if MY mental calculator was wrong.

  4. Do you have to be subscribed to them, to get this box? This would be a great Christmas gift for my son but I don’t get BB.

    • You do not have to be subscribed, this is a one-time purchase.
