Whether you’re interested in maintaining a smooth, clean shave, or just want to keep a burly beard in check, Luxury Barber is a great monthly subscription box to have! For $29.99 per month, this male grooming subscription box arrives, packed with an assortment of at least 10 male grooming products to test out, usually 1 being full-sized. They aim to help you learn about new products and brands, so one month you may get aftershave and shaving cream, and another month, you may get shaving soap and pomade.
LuxuryBarber.com is not only a subscription box, but also is a website stocked with all the products you see in your subscription box, and more, all available for ordering. Plus, by being a member, you get 10-20% off full-sized products on the website, and anytime a member creates an honest product review they are awarded 15 points, which can be used to redeem products off the website when enough are earned.
I was really excited when the box arrived. It arrived really fast, wrapped well in bubble wrap and a Luxury Barber sticker, and then inside was a well-designed gray and black box with the Luxury Barber logo. It seemed very high-end and like a great reusable box.
Inside was an information card with all of the products included. I was happy that they listed all the brands and a bit about them, however the pricing was definitely off, because they listed the prices of the full-size products when all but one were sample sized.
The first product is a set of Luxury Barber (self-branded) Fresh Richie Cleansing Towelettes, which are nice, lightly scented towelettes, good for cleaning your face in the morning or at the end of the day.
The full-sized product in this box is a Balla Body Spray. It’s nice because it’s a refreshing body fragrance that isn’t too heavy, however my boyfriend K said it reminded him of a spray like Axe, so it wasn’t his favorite.
Next up, we have two of these 3-in-1 shampoos by Towel Dry. The Towel Dry Hydrating Shampoo and the Thickening Shampoo (both 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash) are sulfate, paraben and gluten free, and aim to repair, strengthen and add shine to hair. They don’t lather as “bubbly” as other shampoos because they are sulfate free, but they work well. I like that they’re perfectly sized for on-the-go and help reduce the amount of products in an overnight bag.
Next we have a few sets of razor blades, meant for a traditional razor handle like they use at a barber shop, not the newer kind. They included two packages of Gillette 7 O’Clock razors, and one package of Croma Blades 10x. These help to give you the closest, smoothest and long-lasting shave possible.
This E Shave Pre Shave Oil was definitely a favorite, with its refreshing cucumber scent, and smooth, well-absorbing oil.
Next we have Dr. Rubin’s The Abraham Pomade, a pomade with strong scents of cream, cedar, and vanilla. This product provides a moldable grip to hair and can be used on your beard, mustache or head.
Soapy Bathman Cedar and Sandalwood Shave Soap is a thin sliver, but smells really good and is perfect for testing out and using to cleanse and suds up pre-shave.
Finally, we end with Menaji Face & Body Scrub, which helps to scrub and refresh skin to remove dead skin and make your skin look brighter, and Captain’s Choice Sandalwood Aftershave, which has a nice manly scent for using most shave.
All in all, K and I were both really happy with our first Luxury Barber box! While the Bolla Body Spray was a bit of a miss, the razors, shave soap, and oil were amazing! The packaging is perfect from the way it arrived all packed up, to the printed box and tissue paper, and we both loved the overall idea of being able to try different shave and bath products before purchasing full-size.
