One of the many boxes that arrived while we were away was B’s Birchbox Man box! My neighbor, who got my mail for me, described it as being “like Christmas every day”. I suspect the rest of the week is going to be on the slow side, but who knows really?
Birchbox Man ships via Newgistics and, again, took about 8 days to arrive from NJ. while it does seem like a long time, that’s about the standard for them.
I had peeked at B’s box online, but by the time it arrived I had NO idea what was in it. B was home yesterday when I was doing all my unboxings and I let him open this. I think he was excited ;).
The October Birchbox Man theme is “Eureka” and includes things you need to help “prepare you for your next great idea”. B received Box #14 (*) this month, which included the following:
~Vitamine Sea Shaving Cream ($1.29): B hasn’t gotten a chance to try this yet but I know he will. And soon. People always ask me if B really uses all of his samples and the answer is yes, he does! He is religious about using his samples.
~Histories de Parfums 1899 ($4.17): This is a Hemingway-inspired cologne with notes of “bergamot, black pepper and vetiver”. It’s a different scent, but also amazing. I really really really like this. Like really like. I don’t love the $125/bottle price tag quite as much, but I love this.
~Lab Series Age Rescue + Face Lotion ($26.47): I had no idea how expensive this was! Goodness! B is always looking to try new face creams and this is brand new to him. I’m saving up my Birchbox points and something tells me that I will be spending them on this!
~Quirky Upwright ($27.99): This is a ket-ring, a smartphone “kickstand” and a stylus all in one. And if B doesn’t use it, I will. I can’t find my old stylus and with winter (and glove season) coming, this would come in very handy. I try on a daily basis in the winter to use my iPhone with gloves on. Never works. I know they have special gloves you can use with this, but I have never went and gotten them.
All totaled, B’s October Birchbox Man had a value of $59.92, (NOT including points for doing reviews and purchasing the box itself (**) – which would bring the value up to $65.92! Once again, this month’s Birchbox Man was a complete hit! Do you subscribe to Birchbox Man? What’d you think of this month’s box? What box number did you get and what did it include?
