Yay! B’s September 2014 Birchbox Man box is here! It’s one of the first of the September boxes to arrive and I was happy to see it. It means that fall is coming and, of course, a fresh set of boxes for a new month!
If you aren’t familiar, Birchbox Man is $20/month and sends you monthly deliveries of deluxe grooming and lifestyle samples, tailored to your profile. With Birchbox Man you can try cult brands, up-and-coming lines, and everything in between.
Birchbox Man ships via UPS Mail Innovations and, unlike my August Woman’s box, this one took just a few days to arrive.
Men’s Birchbox boxes are revealed on the 25th of the month and you can either check in the app to see what you are getting or you can go online to look. If you do it online, you just need to click on “Boxes”, then “Men’s” and the contents should appear. B received Box #21 this month.
The September 2014 Birchbox Man theme was “Hit the Books” and included the following products:
~Field Notes Mixed 3-Pack with Clic Pens ($11.50): Meh. Neither of us are overly excited by these. I am sure one of us (or the kids) will eventually use them, but they wouldn’t have been my first lifestyle pick this month (the tie-clip would have been).
~Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion ($3): I believe I have gotten something from this brand in one of my Birchbox boxes and recall liking it. The lotion smells good and does really work for either men or women. And I was reading more about the description of them and it turns out that they do stock “some of the finest hotels” with their products. I knew it! For some reason this just reminds me of hotel products. In a good way of course.
~Billy Jealousy White Night Gentle Daily Facial Cleanser ($2.50): This was B’s sample choice selection this month. He has used it in the past and has been quite happy with it. He’s been traveling a lot this summer (and will be this fall as well), so these sample sizes work out well for him.
~CoSTUME NATIONAL Eau de Parfume HOMME ($1.65): This smells great, but ouch, it’s expensive! Ahh! B likes it, but I don’t know that he likes it enough to buy the full size of it. It would have to be beyond amazing to get the full size.
~Bonobos Anchor Chief Pocket Square ($42): We love Bonobos (they have great stuff for B for work and play), but I can’t say that he’ll ever use a pocket square. I may be able to find some other use for it though. Not totally sure what, but something else.
All totaled I came up with a value of $60.65 for the September 2014 Birchbox Man box and that doesn’t even include the points for purchasing the box (**) and reviewing the products, which would bring the value to $67.65. While the value was there and worth the $20 we spent, I didn’t think it was one of my favorite boxes ever. The lifestyle item wasn’t our favorite and I think we could have done without a pocket square. I hope that down the road they allow us to pick our lifestyle items! That would be amazing.
Do you get Birchbox Man box this month? What’d you think of the box this month and what lifestyle item did you get (I believe there were socks, a notebook, and a tie bar)? If you are interested in subscribing or just want to learn more, click here!
