August 2014 Birchbox Man Review

Husband’s August 2014 Birchbox Man arrived this past week – here’s what was inside:


(Husband got box 10 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 ( are the box number – you can see all of the other boxes by changing this number!)

Overview of his box from Birchbox:

July boxes2 024

English Laundry Pomade – 0.5 oz? – $4?

Husband uses hair style products on occasion, so I’m sure this will get used!

Air Repair Rescue Balm – 0.3 oz? – $4?

To be honest, I might be stealing this item from Husband!  Meant for dry skin (anywhere!)

Billy Jealousy Facial Cleanser – 1 oz – $2.50

Husband always seems to get facial cleanser in his Birchbox!  I think there’s seriously like 5 samples at a time in the shower… Last month he gave it to a friend, maybe I can convince him to do this again!  LOL…

Proraso Liquid After Shave Cream – 0.8 oz – $3.30

Husband also has many after shave creams, but again, I know they’ll get used.  I guess Birchbox’s one downfall is that he’ll never actually buy face was or after shave or shave cream just due to all the same samples!

Grover Boxers – $22

Husband typically wears boxer briefs, but he’ll still give these a shot.  It’s been a long time since he wore actual “boxers”, so they very well may end up at the back of the drawer.


The overall value of Husband’s May 2014 Birchbox Man was approximately $36 for his $20 subscription.  I don’t think this is one of his favorite boxes, but will probably depend on how much he ends up liking the boxers.  I think that’s probably the riskiest thing about Birchbox Man is that if you don’t like the lifestyle item, the box can be a flop.  We’ve definitely had a lot of “wins” though, so overall I think it works out good for Husband!
