BIRCHBOX MAN Has Launched! May Box

BirchBox Man has finally arrived!! Yay!! I have been waiting for this box to launch and I got in on the first box (May). We received it in April and it was really quick shipping without any hassles or problems. My husband has been a little bit jealous of all my beauty subscription services that I have, so I thought this might calm him down a bit :p hehe
For those of you that don't know what Birchbox is, it's a monthly subscription service for $20/month. There has been a Birchbox for women, but this is the first month that they launched one for men. There definitely aren't many other services for men in the US . We tried The Get Fresh Kit which was $20/month, but you can only receive it for 4 months and then you have to choose full size products after that. We think that the fun part is receiving a box every month, so we opted out of that one just in time to get this Birchbox for men :)
 "Birchbox is the best way to discover new grooming, beauty and lifestyle products. Sample top products from high-end brands, get expert advice, buy new favorites and earn points with every purchase." Refer a friend and receive 50 points!
So, is it worth $20/month? The Birchbox for women is only $10/month which is a great price (some months). $20 per box for this one? See for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments below!

So here it is!! Pics are my own and the descriptions are from the Birchbox website HERE

The Guide is a really cool advice page for your Man! It gives some great tips and tricks :)


The Italian fashion house known for its modern, architectural pieces takes the same rigorous approach to its fragrances. This stylish unisex sense is intense but also approachable, with a rich amber base. It translates from the boardroom to the bar easily and is sure to attract attention—the good kind.


Top notes of jasmine tea, middle notes of mother of pearl of hibiscus, and base notes of amber blend together to create a sensual, rich fragrance.


We recommend developing your own preferred routine when it comes to wearing a scent. One rule: don’t overdue it. You can’t go wrong with a spray behind each ear at the end of your grooming routine.

Richer Poorer Socks

Forget doing an in-depth sartorial study of Wes Anderson or Ryan Gosling—giving your wardrobe a little flair is a lot easier than you might think. All you have to do is flash some color where it’s least expected. Richer Poorer’s eye-catching socks take any hum-drum get-up up a notch with bright patterns and colors.


Lightweight cotton makes these socks comfortable and durable. Bright colors and patterns make them (and you) stand out from the crowd.


Pair bright, patterned socks with dark, solid pants and shirts. Don’t worry too much about matching or clashing—the best results will come from taking a risk with unexpected color combinations.
PS: This was my husband's favorite thing in the box (lol)! They are nice quality socks and he even wore them to work with his suit and dress shoes. A++

Billy Jealousy LiquidSand Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Part scrub and part cleanser, this smart hybrid has just enough exfoliating grittiness to remove dead skin, but not so much that your face is left feeling like sandpaper. Use it every other day, alternating with your usual face wash, for extra smooth, healthy skin. And, because it lifts stubble and minimizes ingrown hairs, it’s great to use before shaving.


The sulfate-free formula hydrates as it exfoliates. It includes naturally moisturizing sunflower glycerides, as well as lactic acid, which helps lessen fine lines and sun damage. Finally, antioxidants from morus nigra leaf extract make skin look overall healthier.


Apply a quarter-sized amount to wet face and massage into skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use every other day or a couple days a week.

Kiehl's Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap

By Kiehl's
This is the Jack Bauer of bar soaps. Unlike less manly versions, this exfoliating bar takes a forceful approach to dry and dead skin, sloughing it away with gritty oat bran and kernels. You’ll feel clean and refreshed, ready for whatever the day throws at you.


Turns out oatmeal is good for more than your cholesterol. This oversized bar uses natural oat bran, oat kernel, and pumice to scrub away dead skin cells and smooth over roughness. Meanwhile, a blend of Citrus Extracts and Mint Oils help relax tired muscles.


You can use this bar all over but it’s especially good for thicker and rougher skin areas. Keep away from your face, which deserves more delicate treatment. We recommend Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser.

Overall, my husband is absolutely stoked on this box and the fact that he will get one every month for only $10/month! Whatever I can do to make my 5 million subscription services seem a little more appropriate then I'm all for it! We can't wait to see what the next month's box is going to be!! I will also update more on the products as he uses them more often. I will post on facebook/twitter when I update it :)

These are very similar sizes and brand quality of items that the women's box has for $20/month. I'm not so sure it's worth an extra $10/month for this one. It's quite a jump in price and doesn't have a jump in the amount of products or the quality of them over the women's box.
