Birchbox Man Review (August Box)

When I signed up for Birchbox, I noticed they had an option for a second box for men. It shipped later in the month, was twice as much, but looked kind of cool, so knowing it was a huge gamble, we signed Bubba up for it. Today he is sharing his review of his first Birchbox Man box, so I'm letting Bubba take over.

The Box Itself:
The box itself seems really nice, it has a lot of good products I would have never thought to use. While the box took forever to get here, I was pleasantly surprised with the way it was packaged and presented.

Vitamin Face & Body Cleanser - $28
This has a great citrus scent to it, it left my skin feeling very soft and smooth. Dani even commented on the smell a few hours after a shower. This is a product I've never heard of, but would consider buying in the future.

Ernest Supplies - Cooling Shave Cream - $25
Another product with a citrus scent. I read the label and found out that it is truly all natural, and the smell proves it. It goes on like a lotion, and as you shave it cleans off like a normal shave cream. It does leave a bit of a residue but it helps with razor rash, and it leaves my skin smooth. 

Hanz de Fuko, Quicksand - $17.50
It helps give a strong all day hold for your hair, it really does help absorb the oil in your hair. 

Luxe Los Angeles Guide - $10
I honestly will probably will never use this. We hardly ever travel this far, and when we do we've already planned our trips enough to not need this guide. I don't foresee how this is very useful anyways, thanks to cell phones nowadays. 

Men in Cities - Leather Passport Case - $40
This is a very nice, lightweight leather case. It makes me want to travel, just to use it. This product alone made the cost of the Birchbox worthwhile, and was nice to have something like this that I could use in my daily life. 

I would refer this box to other guys out there, family, friends, co-workers. It's really nice to get something for yourself in the mail that isn't a bill. The surprise of not knowing what you are getting is fun, and the items being chosen for me is great. I can't wait for next month's box!

  1. I didn't realize they had boxes for men too. This is looking like a good Christmas gift for my college son.
