Birchbox Man: August 2012

I've got to give it to Birchbox — they're killing it when it comes to the mens boxes! This month Richard got some pretty good stuff. 

The t-shirt is from Barking Irons; it's amazingly soft and is this really awesome grey color. They say it's "vintage fit with short, angled sleeves" but other than the sleeves it seems like a pretty normal tee to me!  It's $46 for a two-pack of these shirts so getting one in a $20 Birchbox? Worth it. Next up is the Oribe Ultra Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner which Richard has yet to try but from the looks of it they seem pretty good, especially because they're gentle and hopefully gentle enough for sensitive skin.

As per each Birchbox he's recieved so far, there were some things wrapped in some green paper with a Birchbox sticker-type thing holding it together. Inside we found three pretty awesome little products. 

Richard's not much of a lip balm person but he has enjoyed using the C.O. BIGELOW's My Favorite Lip Balm. It's got shea butter and almond oil and isn't too thick or greasy on the lips aka perfect for men. The Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste is bomb. Seriously. I tried this and love it and am honestly considering purchasing it. Not only is the package all vintage and badass, but the toothpaste is so good that the sample is already gone. The last thing in the box this month was Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream. Kiehl's is a pretty great brand when it comes to skincare so this seems like a pretty great product. It's a menthol-infused cream which means you'll get a nice cool shave (literally).

What do you guys think about these products? Have you signed up for Birchbox Men yet? 


  1. That's awesome he enjoyed the lip balm. I can't, for the life of me, get my boyfriend to try on lip balms and moisturizers to help his skin with the outrageous summer heat here in Chicago. It's good though that they're doing good with the Men's Birchbox. I wanted to subscribe to the Women's but all the reviews I've been reading about it throws me off the other direction.

    1. I'll be doing a review on the August Women's box once I get it! Guys kind of tend to not realize the importance of taking care of their skin, weirdly. You should take him to Sephora and have him talk to one of the employees — I did that and Richard walked away with a few awesome samples! x
