The assemble unique brands, many of which you’ve probably never heard of (but will wish you had), into a fun, unique box that they call “Box Of Awesome.”
Each month, Bespoke Post comes up with a different theme, and names the box accordingly. Current themes include: Cheers (beer), Swagger (socks), Trimmed (shaving), and many more. They also have videos you can watch that teach you tips and tricks on how to use all of the items in your box!  This is definitely the perfect gift idea of the men in your life!
I, Kyle, received the Trimmed Bespoke Post box to review.
The box that I received from Bespoke Post is definitely designed with men in mind! The box I received has the name Trimmed and the entire box is themed around items that you would need to grow a beard or mustache, or keep your current beard or mustache looking it’s best.All of the items came inside of this cool canvas pouch by Gridwax. The canvas pouch measures 10″x6.5″ and is not only tear resistant but also coated in wax to repel water. Sometimes canvas pouches look like makeup pouches, but this one has no chance of being mistaken for a makeup pouch. It’s super durable and holds a lot of items. You can use it to store the items included in the box, or, use it for other things like charging cables and earbuds like I do.

Inside of the Trimmed box I found Beard Balm made by the brand Beard Balm. It’s a full 1.5 ounce container. When I rubbed a bit of the Beard Balm on my facial hair, it made my hair super soft and smooth, tamed the tangles, and got rid of the itchiness and scratchiness that facial hair can sometimes have. It doesn’t just feel good in my facial hair but it also helps eliminate itching, tangling, frizz, and split ends and leaves my facial hair looking like I take hours to groom it every day.

Sometimes beard care products can be rough on the skin, and leave you with even more itching then shaving does. That is not the case with Beard Balm. Beard Balm is made out of natural oils including eucalyptus and geranium and you can feel and see it conditioning your facial hair the more often that you use it.

A 2 ounce bar of Amber Resin Beard Soap is the next item in my Trimmed box. This soap is made by The Mod Cabin and it is an all natural oil based soap. It doesn’t have a strong soap smell to it at all, and instead has a very pleasant outdoors scent that is not overpowering and you won’t turn your nose up at at. The soap can be used as both a conditioner and moisturizer for your facial hair or you can use it as a lather to shave with.

Bespoke Post Men's Trimmed Box Review

I tried using the Amber Resin Beard Soap to shave with, and I love the amount of lather that it produces on my face. It made my face feel super soft and smooth after shaving and left my remaining facial hair glistening and shiny like I had just left the barber shop. The great thing about Amber Resin Beard Soap is that it not only conditions and moisturizes your facial hair, but it also moisturizes and conditions the skin underneath your facial hair, so you end up with less ingrown hairs and unsightly red patches.

Also included in the Trimmed box is a pair of Moustache Scissors by Tweezerman. These are the best mustache scissors that I have ever used. They are super sharp and allow you to trim your beard or mustache quickly and easily. They measure 4″ in length and are the perfect size for quick trims. I found it easy to comb my facial hair in a downward direction and then clip off any stray hairs with these scissors. You can use them to trim 1 hair or use them to groom your entire mustache or beard.

Bespoke Post Men's Trimmed BoxNext in the Trimmed Box is a Pocket Comb by Kent. This isn’t your ordinary dollar store pocket comb that will break the first time you go to use it. This pocket comb is made out of cellulose acetate which has been polished to make round edges that don’t snag your facial hair or pull when you are combing.  The Pocket Comb measures 4.4″ and plows right through tangles and coarse facial hair, leaving smooth, well kept facial hair behind. It’s comfortable to grip, even when it’s wet, and it makes it easy to quickly comb and style my facial hair

The final item in my Trimmed Box is a 3 pack of Beard Wipes by Bear Paw. These wipes are made of 100% cotton and have soap, grapeseed oil, aloe oil, cedar oil, and eucalyptus oil in them. The wipes make it easy to cleanse and condition your skin. I like to use these wipes right after shaving because in addition to having cleansing and conditioning properties, they also cool down your skin so you don’t get that after shave burn and tingle all over your face.

Bespoke Post Men's Boxes

The items in the Trimmed box definitely help me get a better handle on managing my facial hair. I was very happy with this box, and it definitely got me curious about the contents of future Bespoke Post boxes!
