My parents recently gifted me a six-month subscription to Birchbox for my 26th birthday. I was really excited because I’ve wanted to try this service for quite a while. Here’s how it works: you pay your subscription fee, fill out a personal questionnaire based on what you like, what your lifestyle is like, and what your grooming needs are. Birchbox sends you a box full of personalized goodies each month for the length of your subscription. Every month is unique and you get discounts on full-sized products on the Birchbox website.
I picked up my first Birchbox today since the mail didn’t run yesterday. I was really pleased with the contents:
Billy Jealousy Adrenaline Junkie Energizing Scrub: smells clean like mint. I’ll throw this in my gym bag and use it after an early morning grind sesh.
Herban Essentials in Eucalyptus & Lemon: fancy towelettes. These are perfect for those times when I need to smell clean and I don’t have the time to actually make that happen.
Cartier Declaration Essence: really nice cologne. It smells like a cedar chest and oranges. Courtney declared it to be “sexy.”
Vitamine & Sea Shaving Cream: really smooth shave cream. It smells really clean.
Topo Designs Dopp Kit: tent-shaped Dopp kit. Really nice quality. At $25 this is already worth more than one month’s subscription fee.
All in all, I’m really pleased with what Birchbox had to send me. I can’t wait to try out my new stuff and put my new Dopp kit to use. To see what Birchbox had to offer this month, click here. I would highly recommend this service to other gentlemen who are looking for something new or exciting.
