When Birchbox announced a Limited Edition box for men, I was so excited I ordered it for my husband’s birthday right away. It was supposed to arrive in two days, but it shipped in two days and then with the 4th of July holiday, it didn’t arrive until yesterday (one week from when it was ordered). The box is $88.00
Because this is a gift for my husband I didn’t take the packaging off everything. I also had to take all my pictures at night while he was at the store.
I always love to see what Birchbox comes up with for their Limited Edition box packaging. And even though I know what is coming in each box, I always think it’s smaller than I expected. 🙂
I was very impressed with the first look. They crammed a lot into that box!
Grady’s Cold Brew Bean Bags: $12.00
I am very excited to try these. I had never heard of cold brew before, but you put the bag into a container with cold water and you end up with a pitcher of iced coffee.
This is a bag that folds up into a teeny, tiny pouch. It also comes in a camo print and I wish they had included that. My husband will not love the print, but it will be good to keep in the back of the car and for travel.
This is a solar watch that is also waterproof. The band is gray and lime green and the face is blue. I don’t think it’s something my husband will wear everyday, but the kids will think it’s cool and it will be great for the pool and beach.
Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm (Travel Size): $36.00 full size, $7.20 sample value
I’d never heard of this brand before, but this lotion is supposed to reduce wrinkles, redness from shaving and ingrown hairs. I like that it’s big enough to get at least a week’s use to see if it really does what it says.
Juniper Ridge Trail Crew Soap (Travel Size): $30.00 full size, $5.63 sample value
If I hadn’t seen other people’s pictures of their box contents, I would have wondered what happened to our soap. Turns out they are all like this – with the labels all crooked. This soap is made in small batches and can be used for hands, body wash, shampoo…
Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes (2 per box): $24.00 full size, $2.40 sample value
These wipes are supposed to cleanse, tone and hydrate. They will be great for quick cleanups during the summer. I have lots of face wipes, but I think these are the first I’ve seen for men.
I think this is what initially drew me to the box. This blanket is cotton and acrylic and will be perfect for the beach or going to events with the girls. I love that it’s a very simple design and it’s not bulky at all. We have some blankets we use, but they take up so much room in the car. This will be perfect.
I came up with a total value of $145.22 for the Birchbox Limited Edition Men’s box. I liked this a lot more than the Modern Mermaid box (it was also twice the cost!) and hopefully my husband will love it.
