November 2013 Birchbox Man Review


Husband received his second Birchbox man earlier this week – I got a little behind on posting my review (whoops!)  Here we go…

The Box:

The Cost:

Men’s Subscription ($20/Month):  Grooming products and accessories ranging from socks to tech accessories

The Goods:

Overview of his box from Birchbox:

novbbman 003

English Laundry No. 7 Eau de Toilette – 1 ml sample – $0.84 (Full Size 3.4 oz for $84)

Normally I may have complained a little about the sample size of this item, but I am not the biggest fan of the scent.

novbbman 004

ERNEST SUPPLIES Protective Matte Moisturizer- 0.3 Fl oz – $3 (Full Size 2.5 Fl oz – $25)

Husband really liked the moisturizer in last month’s box – we’ll see how he feels about this one.

novbbman 005

Vitamine & Sea Shaving Cream – 0.25 Fl oz – $1.30 (Full size 7 Fl oz – $36)

The sample size of this item is downright pathetic.  Husband would have been a lot more excited for a larger sample – he got a good 3-4 shaves from last month’s shaving sample.  I’m guessing this months just will not last as long.

novbbman 007

Yes To™ Cucumbers Facial Towelettes – 10 towelettes – $2 (Full Size 30 towelettes for $6)

Don’t tell Husband – but I may be stealing one or two of these for myself!  I’ve been wanting to try them 🙂

novbbman 010

Apolis Transit Issue Travel Candle (Cypress Fig) – Full Size – $30

Never really heard of a travel candle before, but I guess we’ll see.  The smell is very “manly” so it won’t be lit in the house – perhaps in the garage??

The Verdict:

Overall value of the box = $37.14 for a $20 subscription.

Not sure that we’ll ever use the candle, and since the remaining product sizes were a bit small this month (read the shaving cream); this box was a little disappointing…  Guess we’ll see how next month goes!

What did you get in your November Birchbox Man?
