June 2014 Birchbox Man Review


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!

THE BOX:

(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!)

  SFBBManTFFB 030

SFBBManTFFB 028

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:

SFBBManTFFB 031

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.

SFBBManTFFB 033

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 VERDICT:

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!
