Extraordinary Man Box Review Summer 2019
From the editors of BCLiving, Extraordinary Man Box is a seasonal subscription box filled with on-trend products & accessories that redefine extraordinary style. Combining their experience and knowledge of the hottest trends, they have put together an uncompromising package that arrives in your mailbox each season. They kindly sent us this box for review.
I got to review Extraordinary Man Box for the first time last season. I was quite excited about it because men’s lifestyle boxes are few and far between. I was excited for a box that I could share with (or give) to my husband. I’m also loving the fact that they are based in Canada.
When you sign up for an Extraordinary Man Box subscription you can choose to pay every month or every 3 months. You will receive a new box each season and every box will include:
- Extraordinary attire – From socks to lapel pins, they are selected to make a statement
- Extraordinary personal care – Part of what elevates you is the care you give to not only your clothes but to yourself. Using only high-quality ingredients, these products will keep you feeling fresh.
- Extraordinary decor and accessories – Whether they are for your home or you, these will add that subtle bit of class that you know that’s what it’s all about.
Here’s a closer look at what we received in the Summer Extraordinary Man Box……
Riversol Two-Step Restorative Treatment Pack ($19)
Previously, we introduced you to the gel cleanser of Vancouver’s Riversol. This summer, we turn to their vegan-friendly, cruelty-free grooming products again to help improve sun-damaged skin. This intensive two-step treatment – featuring Exfoliating Glycolic Peel and Hydrating Antioxidant MASK aids the skin’s natural moisture barrier, ensuring your skin is properly hydrated even in the heat.
Perfectly curated for a Summer box. A high-quality skincare product that will help improve sun-damaged skin. I usually opt for sunscreen and/or staying out of the sun, but this is a great backup plan.
Avventura Outdoors Classic Camping Mug ($9.95)
Our favorite adventure experts, Vancouver’s Avventura Outdoors dreamed up this functional, dependable camping mug. Emblazoned with: “Life is Better Around the Campfire”. It’s the indispensable lightweight accessory you need when you take to the tent this summer. Hand wash after use and do not microwave.
This is my favorite item in the box and the first indication of the underlying “outdoor” theme for the Summer Extraordinary Man Box.
Extraordinary Man Grilling Apron ($36)
Grilling is a sure-fire way to create a mess, albeit a delicious one! Keep clean with this durable, classic apron, designed specifically for Extraordinary Man Box subscribers. Made with 100 percent cotton in a classic navy tone. It’s accented by butcher inspired brown ties. Soak well to clean, hand wash and hang dry…then spark up the BBQ and start all over.
Apron’s are my jam. I’m not sure if my husband feels the same way but I know that some men will appreciate this grilling accessory. I love the navy color and the brown ties.
Grimm’s Fine Foods Salami Bites ($5.50)
Founded in 1951 by brothers Henry and Jacob Grimm, Grimm’s Fine Foods has long been dedicated to premium ingredients and quality snack foods, meat products and more. Their salami bites are a high-protein snack that’s a surefire way to stay powered up throughout the day. For those with dietary restrictions, they are also gluten, soy and lactose-free.
What men’s subscription box would be complete without salami?! Seriously!
AG Hair Peppermint Wash ($20)
This versatile shampoo and wash from Vancouver’s AG Hair is the perfect post-workout tool. Thoroughly refreshing, the light peppermint scent cools, as this dual shampoo/shower wash gently cleanses, stimulates the scalp and leaves you feeling reinvigorated. As a bonus, it’s PH balanced, avoiding the harsh acidic impact of other shower aids.
Love the smell and love the fact that this item is a multi-tasker. Perfect to throw in your gym bag or weekend bag. Use it as a shampoo or a wash.
Haven Living The Woods Pre-shave Facial Scrub ($18)
Slough off dead skin and get photo-ready for summer events with the Pre-shave Facial Scrub from Vancouver Island’s Haven Living. It prevents ingrown hairs and provides the cleanest shave possible, all while exfoliating and protecting the skin’s natural moisture. Or add hot water to melt the natural sugar crystals and create a cleansing oil thats ideal even for daily use.
After the camping mug, this is my second favorite item in the box. A must-have product for any guy. My husband shaves regularly, as all men do, so I can definitely see this product coming in handy.
Avventura Outdoors Inflatable Camp Pillow ($24.95)
Last year, Avventura Outdoors shared a lightweight hammock in our summer collection – and the feedback was terrific. This year, we asked them to outfit us again…..with a camping pillow. Self-inflating, highly compressible (for easy packing) and weighted next to nothing, it’s perfect for hikes, camping trips and lazy days at the beach.
Lastly, we have another outdoor/camping essential. It goes perfectly with the mug and is a great item to keep in the camper.
Extraordinary Man Box Review Summer 2019 – Final Thoughts
Overall the Summer Extraordinary Man Box is pretty great. It doesn’t have the wow factor that I was looking for but if you take a step back and consider the curation you will find a great underlying outdoor theme and see that all of the products are of high-quality and from reputable brands. There are a few products that my husband will certainly appreciate and there are a few that I will gift to friends. A great box, great value, and a great addition to the men’s subscription box world.
