Birchbox Man contains seven items in total and I haven't come across any of the brands inside, so I am even more looking forward to trying them out. Inside my box is the following:
To use - Simply apply a few drops to cleansed skin, massaging across the face and down the neck area. For best results use day and night.
Gentlemen's Tonic Daily Moisturiser (50ml) - This moisture-packed tonic is said to be perfect for all skin types. Using a unique blend of ingredients, from mineral-rich seaweed and emollient Babassu oil to soothing birch and softening coco butter, work to boost hydration levels in a flash.
To use: Apply a small amount to the face and neck morning and night, being careful to avoid the eye area.
English Laundry Notting Hill Atomiser (5ml)- English Laundry is described as having an evolving which initially opens with fresh, citrusy notes of bergamot and lime, and settles into a woody mélange of cedarwood and amber (with a spicy hint of peppercorn).
Mazorin Face Scrub (150ml) - This scrub has been specifically designed with men’s needs in mind it lifts away impurities with a blend of bamboo and maracuia powder while white willow extract keeps grime at bay thanks to its antibacterial protection for a crystal clear complexion.
To Use: massage onto wet skin, avoid the eye area and then rinse with warm water.
Closed on Monday Deluxe Pomade (30ml) - Closed On Monday transforms the traditional grooming products for the modern times - as demonstrated perfectly by their Deluxe Pomade. Imbued with a sophisticated sandalwood and vetiver scent, its unique gel-pomade formula is lightweight yet will keep your style in place.
To use: Rub an ample amount between your hands until the pomade starts to soften then work through your hair from root to tip.
Richer Poorer Socks - In an eye-catching orange and grey colour, these socks are cotton and worth a cool £12, probably the most expensive pair of socks I own!
So there you have the very first Birchbox for Men Box. I am really impressed by the contents, each sample is a good enough size that you can use it for a few weeks to gauge a well rounded opinion as to whether or not you would purchase the full sized product and it is a nice introduction to some new brands.
I also think this would make a nice giftbox for Christmas for the man in your life, your brother, your dad or even a close male friend. The box costs just £25 and you can find it HERE along with further information on each item within the box, or other items which are featured in other boxes.
