Blueridge Beauty Blogger: Birchbox Un-Review for Birchbox Version of #TheManfromUncle

I am long time subscriber/Ace of Birchbox for now over 3 yrs and I enjoy most of my boxes and products!! A few times, there might be one or two items that I didn't like but over all I love my boxes and orders! Even customer service was great when I get a missing or damage item/box with an acceptable replacement!! Until now, I have no reason to right an "Un-Review" about Birchbox when I discover Birchbox Man having a theme box that should have been created for us ladies!!


This August, Birchbox Man released a box inspired by a retro spy movie, The Man from U.N.C.L.E, which has an all-star cast and several new actors/actress!!

In the Birchbox Man/ UNCLE box is a mixture of men skincare and gadgets that they will receive in their September box if I am not mistaken!! This is a great concept box inspired by this movie for the guys except we got a problem and I feel will not be alone on this topic!! But this movie has two strong female leads one being a spy from UNCLE and one being an EVIL Genius!! And don't women enjoy a good spy movie as much as guys so much that we should have a Birchbox version inspired by these two ladies beauty style and fashion!

I discovered from Ulta website that Pur Minerals had a Movie Inspired look of Elizabeth's Evil Genius Character plus a contest!! So another beauty company has an UNCLE inspired pack but not Birchbox?

For Birchbox Special Edition boxes, we could both had an two looks for those being the spy or evil genius looks inspired by these two leading actresses!! Don't we have items for the perfect cat eye as well as makeup, skincare, and even accessories!! Plus, don't we love contests from Birchbox, too!!

I know that in the past we had both boxes for Mad Men and Suits for both men and women to enjoy!! Please consider this in the future boxes!!

Until next time,

XOXO

  1. I'd really love to see more pop-culture themed Birchboxes in general. I think they can be a lot of fun!

    1. Thoughts excactly!! I enjoyed the Mad Men post and beauty segments back in May for Birchbox for us ladies!! I thought it was stylish and fun!! For this latest movie, Birchbox miss the boat to offer not one but two boxes that these ladies offer in style and beauty to try!

  2. That's totally not fair! I haven't been paying attention to the men's box lately since my husband hated it, so I didn't even know we were being shortchanged.

    1. Exactly!! We had equal boxes to the best of my knowledge for Mad Men and Suits for both Birchbox and Birchbox Man!! We could have tips for killer cat eye or bold lips, hair style tips, skincare or sunless tan, cool gadgets too!

  3. Great post, Ursula! Gee, how strange that is that there's a men's box but not a women's. I can't believe that they missed the opportunity. Hmm. I do want to see the movie though

  4. I heard that Birchbox for men are more expensive than the standard Birchbox of $10.00. I echo what Allison said on the missed opportunity by Birchbox. Great post!

  5. We don't get a men's Birchbox at all here in the UK! I'm sure it would be popular - British men groom too!
