August 2014 Birchbox Man Review


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

THE BOX:

(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 (https://www.birchbox.com/men/box/august-2014/august-2014-mb10) are the box number – you can see all of the other boxes by changing this number!)

THE GOODS:

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 VERDICT:

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!
