Bespoke Post Review - November 2014 "Refresh" - Men's Lifestyle Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

This post contains referral links.

What is it? Bespoke Post Box of Awesome 
How Much? $45 per month + tax, plus $10-20 shipping to Canada (US dollars) 
What's in it? Fresh & interesting lifestyle brands for men built around a central, unique theme  

Bespoke Post is a lifestyle subscription box for men. Each month, Bespoke Post sends a new "Box of Awesome" - a box filled with a limited edition collection of products built around a specific theme. To complement the box, Bespoke posts how-to-videos, tips & tricks, and interviews with the makers. 

"We scour the world for time-tested, small-batch, or otherwise remarkable gear. Our goal is to introduce men to something new."

On the first of each month, Bespoke Post announces the monthly selection via e-mail. Some months there are multiple new boxes, and once in a while they bring back a favourite from the archive. If there is more than one box available, Bespoke Post will select one for you and that will be your "Club Shipment" for the month. If you like your Club Shipment, do nothing. Your box will be sent automatically mid-month. If you want to change your selection, or skip the month, you have until the 5th to login to change, skip, or add additional items to your shipment.

There were six boxes available in November, including last month's Highlands box. I picked two boxes for November: My Club Shipment "Slate" and an add-on box called "Refresh". That's another great thing about Bespoke Post. You can order as many boxes as you'd like each month, with no additional shipping cost.

Refresh

Bring some class to your morning routine.

Your dopp kit -- and the grooming gear you pack inside -- should be just as sharp as the rest of your life. Combine ‘em, and your morning will have a stylish breath of fresh air. You’ll look clean, polished, and put-together both at home and when it's time to hit the road.
First look

Blue Claw Co. Waxed Duck Island Dopp Kit in Olive Green ($75)
Blue Claw's Dopp bag is as resistant to blending in as it is to wearing down. They were designed exclusively for us, and are crafted with care here in the States. The sturdy exterior uses a heavy 15oz waxed canvas sourced from family-run American mills, and the full-grain leather handle and pull tab, brass rivets and zipper, and signature blue ballistic nylon lining lend some polish. We've got it in two colorways: a rustic olive green, and British tan.
Wow. This dopp kit is worth more than one and half times the cost of the entire box! It's great quality. The zipper is a little stiff but it will probably improve with use. The leather handle and tab are beautiful.

Dr. Squatch Hand Made Soap in Gold Moss Scrub (5oz, $6)
These all-natural soaps are made by cold-pressing olive oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, organic shea butter, sea salt, and fragrance oils. The Gold Moss version -- our personal favorite -- has a woodsy, fresh scent that’ll bring out your inner ape.
Interesting to know: Dr. Squatch has a Soap Subscription, but unfortunately, it doesn't ship to Canada.

Gold Bond Medicated Body Powder (1oz, $3.29)
To stay fresh throughout the day, dash on some body powder to stave off sweat.

drinkwel Drinker's Detox (2 free sample packs)
Replenish your nutrients and help your body process alcohol-induced toxins while supporting a healthy liver function. Take these headache-savers after your next late night - your body and mind will thank you.
I've used a similar product before called Party Smart. It really does work. drinkwel sells these packs in bulk for wedding favours, which is hilarious, and also genius.

Cremo Company Face Wash (6oz, $7.99)
This well-balanced facial cleanser is pH neutral with a concentrated foaming gel that leaves your face looking and feeling so fresh and so clean clean.

MITCH by Paul Mitchell Heavy Hitter Shampoo (full size, 8.5oz, $7.49 sale)
Get the gunk out of your mane. MITCH's take cleans deep down to get rid of dirt and product, but won't strip away the natural oils that keep your hair soft and shiny. And the refreshing cedar & agave scent will leave your hair smelling as good as it looks.

Marvis Classic Strong Mint Toothpaste (10ml,  $1.40)
A minty import from Italy, packed in an old school, apothecary inspired tube. It'll leave your mouth sparkling and your medicine chest looking good.

Gold Bond Ultimate Men's Essential Hydrating Cream (0.75oz, <$1)
It's time to stop dipping into other people’s moisturizer and get one of your own -- we like the all-around nature of Gold Bond’s Everday lotion since it can be used on your hands, body and face.

MITCH by Paul Mitchell Construction Paste (25ml, $7.29 sale price)
Finish your look by giving your hair some help. This stuff is easy to apply and dries soft for when you just want a bit of flexible texture that doesn't look overdone.

The November Bespoke Post "Refresh" box included nine items, valued just under $110! It's an amazing value. This box cost $45 US, and because I added it on to my monthly Club Shipment, there was no additional shipping. If this was the only Box of Awesome I purchased this month, the total would have been $65.40 US, with shipping/tax. I am gifting all of these items to my Dad for Christmas (along with Highlands from last month). I think he will love the quality dopp kit filled with grooming essentials. He will be all set for his next trip.

If you are interested in trying Bespoke Post, use promo code RESCUE and save 30% off your first box! If that code is no longer working, please let me know and I'll try to find a new one.
