Believe it or not, B’s April Birchbox Man showed up today. This is the earliest it has ever arrived and I hadn’t even gotten a chance to peek at it online before it showed up in the mailbox!
I opened the box before B got home. He doesn’t care. It drives him crazy when I take a million pictures while he’s trying to open the box! So this is a perfect alternative for both of us.
The April Birchbox Man theme is “Turn It Up” and includes items to help you turn up the volume…on everything. “Crank up your speakers, jog that extra mile, add a couple of dashes of hot sauce to your sandwhich, and flash some color at the ankle – the knobs on this month’s assortment go all the way to eleven”. Oh and in case you are keeping track, B got Box #12 (*).
Here’s what was inside:
~Richer Poorer Socks ($24 – $12/pair): These will for sure turn up the volume on B’s work outfits. I don’t care what he says, I am going to make sure he wears these on casual Fridays – aka tomorrow. I love wild socks on men. I don’t know why. It’s unexpected and fun and cool, all of which are totally B!
~Yes To Carrots Lip Butter ($3): I’m like 75% sure I will be able to get B to give me this and I am super excited! I love everything by “Yes To” and I am guessing this will be no exception. I’ve never tried the lip butter, but what could be wrong with a product that wants to make your lips feel more loved?
~Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($2.25): This cream can either be used as a styler and a leave-in conditioner. B shaved his head a few weeks ago and doesn’t need any products *yet*, but his hair grows fast and will totally be needing this soon.
~Proraso Shaving Creme ($0.67): B really liked the Lucky Tiger liquid shaving cream he got a few Birchboxes ago, so it’ll be interesting to see what he thinks of this. Frankily, I think this has much cuter packaging. However, I know that means nothing to B.
~Nuxe Men Moisturizing Multi-Purpose Gel ($10.50): This is a multi-purpose gel which is suppose to both hydrate and energize your skin. Sounds pretty good? I know B will try this right away. And I gotta tell you, this seems yummy! In a manly way of course.
All totaled B’s April Birchbox Man had a value of $40.42 (NOT including points for doing reviews and purchasing the box itself – which would bring the value up to $47.42), which was, as always, way more than the $20 price tag. We totally love Birchbox Man and B looks forward to receiving this box every month. Plus, all of the items in this month’s box will get used (unlike last month’s bottle koozie), which is always key!
