January’s Birchbox Man is about getting lean & mean – or about making promises to do so. I have similarly promised myself to try out P90X. Birchbox Man would instead like us to make small and lasting tweaks to our routine. They also have a contest to win 10,000 Birchbox Points, though it’s not active yet.

January 2014 Birchbox Man: Go Time
American Crew Alternator ($1.50) I’m not sure about the endless pliability that this product promises but I’m happy to try out a new hair product that isn’t stiff. Smells interesting and makes it feel silky.
ERNEST SUPPLIES Soap-free Gel Face Wash ($1.85) Birchbox seems to send me Ernest Supplies in each box, and this month was no exception. This soap-free face wash will make sure your face doesn’t dry out. Smells kind of lemony.
Mayron’s Goods Chapstuff ($14) This is a full size product, although it’s quite small. This is perfect for winter – it’s packed with shea butter, coca butter, coconut oil, as well as various other oils and extracts. I like that it’s easy to apply anywhere that needs extra protection. This is very nice and I will use the whole thing.
Reviver Dry Deodorant Swipes for Clothes ($3) I guess this is for swiping the pits on your clothes when you need freshening up.
Tommy John 360° Sport Trunk ($31) Um, wow. These sure are silky drawers. These are from the Tommy John “Second Skin” line – “the most body-conscious underwear available.” Perhaps they would have been better in the February box. It features a horizontal “quick draw” fly and has a key pocket for when you’re wearing gym shorts. These are decidedly workout undies and are quite comfy. I like their attention to not having excess fabric, and I may try out their no-ride up undershirts the next time I purchase some. Tommy John’s Second Skin is made of Non-Pilling Micro Modal. I am impressed.
My January Birchbox Man had over $51 in products. I thought the Chapstuff and underwear were totally awesome. You can see all Birchbox Man Reviews. Don’t forget to take a look at other Men’s Grooming Subscription Boxes & Men’s Lifestyle Subscription Boxes and get more information about Birchbox Man.
