His Black Box: Like Birchbox for men!

I'm so excited! If you've read any of my prior birchbox posts you know I have really love getting those little boxes of deluxe samples in the mail each month. I've been looking at other similar services and so far I think (personally) that Birchbox is the best I've come across. However, I recently became aware of a new sample subscription program for men and I'm dying over how cool this is!

The program is called His Black Box or Black Box and it is set up similarly to Birchbox. The subscription is $12/month ($2 more than Birchbox/month) and you receive a box each month filled with deluxe sample products for men. I'm always on the hunt for new products for hubs, so this is exactly what he need!

When I stumbled onto the site I was immediately struck by how masculine it is, I love it! I think even the most "manly" guys will feel very comfortable going on to this site and signing up for the program. The explanation for the program is simple: Personalize. Receive. Review & Refill. Similar to Birchbox, the men in our lives can now review products (or we'll post the review based on their experience for them) on the site and then purchase them at "member-only prices". Perhaps one of the most unique features, other than the fact that this is completely male-targeted, is His Black Box's 21-day guarantee!

The 21-day guarantee on the site is described as follows:

"If you're not satisfied with your Box or it turns out you don't need it, just return the Box and its unopened product samples within 21 days. We'll provide a full refund for your membership fee for that month, minus the cost of shipping. Returned items must be unused and undamaged. They must be returned in their original packaging and in original condition, with all product samples included. The 21-day refund qualifying period begins the day you place your order. This date can be found in the My Account and in your Order Confirmation e-mail. To qualify for your refund, your return package must be postmarked within 21 days of your Ordered On date.

If the return is due to an item being delivered damaged or an incorrect item being shipped to you, you will also be refunded for the original shipping charges you paid at the time the order was placed. Please indicate if your item was damaged or incorrect while creating your return or by contacting our customer support email."

That is so fabulous to me! I'm not aware of any such guarantee with other female-focused sample subscription services (please comment below if you know of any), but that seems like such a great guarantee.

So if you haven't already run over to their site, get going!

Would you consider subscribing for the man/men in your life?
