Birchbox Man Review


I've found the next best thing since sliced bread- better than donuts. Actually, scratch that, nothing is better than donuts tbh. Recently I subscribed to Birchbox Man and I'm so happy with it. Here's the low down: Birchbox sends you 4 sample products (based on your grooming profile) and 1 full sized item for $20/month. I got some good stuff this month, and I'm hype to buy some of these items in full size. 

Malin & Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask- $48

I call this "basic bae". This clay mask is really simple in that it doesn't have any crazy ingredients, but it's powerful. After I washed it off my face I noticed it helped with my dry, crusty & dusty winter skin. I got about 3 uses out of this sample and although I probably won't purchase the full sized version, I'm glad I got to try such a high-end brand. 

Hammak Basic Boxer Brief- $22

One of the things I love about Birchbox is you get to choose a full-sized item in their online shop. This month I chose this boxer brief and it's so soft I want to make it my pillow cover and with that "small square pocket that can only fit one thing", have some good pillow talk. P.S. I I don't have a pic- they're currently on my booty. 

Montale Santal Wood Cologne- $120

So this a scent that I'd wear everyday, but it's perfect for a nice night out. The sandalwood makes it smell really woodsy and masculine, but the juniper helps balance it out so people are not all like "WOAH who does this guy think he is". The sample size is good for about 5-8 uses depending whether you mist yourself in the morning or use your cologne to practice for the summer Olympics. Definitely buying this cologne, I mean, the bottle is gold guys. CLASS. 

Jack Black Turbo Wash Cleanser- $23

Hair & body 2-in-1 products don't work for this hair, however, it is good for this body. I kept this bad boy in my gym bag and it worked wonders. The formula has a powerful mix of botanicals that kill bacteria, soothes sore muscles, and helps to open your pores. If you have wavy/curly hair like me, I'd avoid using this as a shampoo- it might dry your hair out. 

Proraso Liquid Aftershave Lotion- $14

Think of this as a mixture between a toner and moisturizer. Proraso's aftershave lotion has witch hazel, eucalyptus oil, and alcohol. I really like this aftershave because it smells really fresh, and when you're fresh you gotta smell fresh. 

My first Birchbox was definitely a winner, and I'm stoked for my March box. It's like a monthly Christmas gift to yourself, and let's face it, you deserve to treat yo self. Check out the Birchbox website and peep all their cool stuff!
