The November boxes are already rolling in and today that meant the arrival of B’s November 2014 Birchbox Man!
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 USPS through Newgistics and took four days to arrive this month.
The November Birchbox wasn’t a collaboration so it arrived in the normal Birchbox box. For the first time ever, Birchbox Man allowed subscribers to select their lifestyle item this month or opt for their “The Right Scruff” box which was curated in honor of Movember. B was going to get The Right Scruff Box, however, it was sold out by the time we went to make our selection, so he ended up not picking anything at all. I was very curious to see what he’d end up with since we did this.
B received Box #19 (*) this month which looked great when I saw the sneak peek online. I didn’t know all of the details of it yet though, but when I opened it I was really happy to see how packed full it was.
The November 2014 Birchbox Man theme was “On A Mission” and focused on how much we have to give. Many of the brand partners this month contribute to larger social missions and the information card also asks what your mission is. If you don’t yet have one, it reminds you that it’s not too late to chart your course. Here is what was included:
~Clark’s Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream (~$16): I had to estimate the sample size on this one to be 0.25oz because it wasn’t labeled, but I do think I am pretty close. This anti-aging cream, which helps support the Christopher Reeve Foundation, pretty much does it all. It exfoliates, hydrates and smoothes. At $115 for 1.7oz I don’t know that we’ll ever actually purchase this, but B is pumped to try it.
~Alternative Apparel Basic Crew T-Shirt ($28): We SO lucked out by not picking a lifestyle item! the choices were a notebook / pencils or Bombas socks. He does love those socks and he would have been okay with either of those items, but this shirt is awesome. It’s fitted and super soft and just fabulous.
~Jao Hand Refresher ($0.68): B will likely end up packing this for one of his National Guard weekends or a trip overseas or something. Not overly exciting, but he’ll use it.
~Jao Bomade Beardscent ($4.03): I didn’t even know that there was such a thing as “beardscent”. It helps smooth down crazy beard flyways and helps with dry skin and itchy beards as well. I really hope that B never grows a beard long enough that he needs this, but you never know.
~RUSK Hair Care ($6.75): I am stealing this one for L. I can never find product for him when he needs it, so this is going to be all his!
~Do The Right Thing Face to Face Foam Cleanser ($2.30): Cleanser is probably B’s favorite skincare item to receive. He uses it daily and is always interested in trying new brands.
All totaled I came up with a value of $57.76 for B’s November 2014 Birchbox Man box and that doesn’t even include the points for purchasing the box (**) (20 points = $2) or the points for reviewing the products in the box (6 items = 60 points = $6), which brings the real value to $63.76. I think this may be our favorite all-time ever Birchbox Man. Everything was fantastic and that t-shirt is just awesome. Loved this month!
