Husband’s June 2014 Birchbox Man arrived last week Saturday (a mere day after they posted shipping for it!), but just getting to the review now!
(Husband got box 24 this month – how do you tell? Log in to birchbox and scroll down to the box history, click the link and the last one or two digits (https://www.birchbox.com/men/box/june-2014/june-2014-bb24) are the box number – you can see all of the other boxes by changing this number!)
Men’s Subscription ($20/Month): Grooming products and accessories ranging from socks to tech accessories
Overview of his box from Birchbox:
English Laundry Tahitian Waters – 2 ml – $1.70
Mmm – this smells amazing! I really like all the different cologne samples Husband receives in his boxes!
Baxter of California Facial Scrub – 0.5 fl oz – $2.13
I’m sure this’ll get use – not much else to say about it though!
Billy Jealousy Beard Wash – 1 oz – $2.50
I’m not sure why Husband got another “beard” item in his box – I’m fairly certain that he filled out the online profile that said he did NOT have a beard, so not sure why we got this item. Will likely end up being swapped.
Tommy John Loafer Liners – 2 pack – $16.50
Husband doesn’t have loafers, but he does have a pair of Sanuk shoes that these will probably work with? This is the item that we could have picked either the socks, a card holder, or “surprise me”. Husband chose the surprise me option, but I think he wishes it would have been an item different from the two offered!
Proper Bar Soap – 1 oz – $2.40
Hm – we have a LOT of soap in this house. I kind of went on a crazy the past couple years at farmers markets purchasing handmade soaps… LOL This will actually probably end up getting donated with all of the other “hotel” samples.
*Side note on this, whenever we stay at a hotel, we take all of the shampoos/soap bars/etc. and then donate them to a food shelf once a year. It doesn’t cost us anything (the cost is built into the rate of the room right?) and it’s a “free” extra donation to someone in need. We stole this idea from a coworker of Husbands, and have to say it’s awesome. Last year it was a solid Target bag FULL of samples on top of our other donations!
The overall value of Husband’s June 2014 Birchbox Man was approximately $25 for his $20 subscription. I think this is probably his least favorite box yet, but we’ll just mark this one as a miss and hope next month’s is better!
