Bespoke Post is a great way to indulge yourself with high-quality lifestyle enhancements. Bespoke Post is a men’s lifestyle subscription box offering sophisticated accessories, gear, and curated interest kits.

The monthly limited-edition boxes are built around a central, unique theme, and there are usually two or three new boxes to choose from every month. You can also skip the month if you’re not interested in any of the available boxes.

This month’s theme is MINT.

DEAL: For a limited time, use code HELLO20 to save 20% on your first box!

The front side of the card lists the items included in this curation.The card was different in style than past boxes, in that they dropped the article and lengthy narrative from the card, replacing them with photos. This month’s MINT theme is all about mastering your morning hygiene routine.

The reverse side of the card elaborated a bit, providing a guide for calendaring your recurring tasks and giving tips on items to add to your routine.  

Everything in the Bespoke Post MINT Box.

Marvis Mouthwash Concentrate ($22.50): This concentrated mouthwash is alcohol free and has a bright, powerful mint flavor. I love the mint of the Marvis toothpaste, and this is very similar. It is very concentrated, and they recommend a ratio of one part Marvis to four parts water – that makes a very potent rinse! I am a little bummed that the abbreviated card failed to give info on diluting or using the wash, as I may have taken a slug before ready the tiny English instructions hidden in the middle of the Italian print label.

Cocofloss Fresh Coconut Floss ($7.33): Floss made with a fresh coconut flavor.

The floss has microfibers to actually scrub your teeth, and real coconut oil lubricates and polishes.

The back has a handy guide to tell how much time is left in your spool. Funny, my floss always seems to last a very long time…

Morihata Binchotan Charcoal Face Scrub Towel ($20.40): A small, facecloth sized towel that is ideal for use in the shower or sink side.

The fibers incorporate activated charcoal to help absorb impurities and excess oil from your skin.

The towel has two sides – a soft side and a more deeply textured side for scrubbing and exfoliation.

quip Electronic Brush Set ($55?): This sealed pack contains the quip toothbrush system.

The contents of the pack.

A little booklet is included with instructions on setting up and using the system. An adhesive strip allows you to stick the toothbrush holder to your mirror or other smooth surface.

Some additional tips are provided for getting the most out of your tooth-brushing and avoiding sub-optimal habits.

The toothbrush was packed in a disposable cigar tube casing.

It stands on its own, but the casing can also be mounted with the attached adhesive strip. The quip toothbrush is more compact and elegant than most electric toothbrushes, and it has a vibrating action similar to a Clarisonic instead of a rotating bristle design.

the brush fits nicely in your hand, with a cylindrical handle that is much thicker than one finds on a standard toothbrush. The brush is has a nice feel to it, very solid but still lightweight. Pressing the q on the handle causes the brush to vibrate, magnifying the cleaning power of the bristles. The AAA battery that powers the brush is replaceable when needed.

The quip label doubles as a tongue scrubber pad.

The head of the brush is fairly narrow, allowing maximum maneuverability and reach.

The nylon bristles in the center are flanked by an outer row of rubbery posts. These are smooth and soft – I think they are there mostly to protect the bristles from being compacted or bent during use. The bristles are soft, and the head can be easily replaced – quip ships new heads every 3 months.

A small tube of quip toothpaste is included. It has a fresh mint flavor, and a pea-sized dab is enough for a brushing session. The tube contains two weeks worth of toothpaste if used as recommended.

A card is included with a link for three months of free toothpaste and a replacement brush head, which is a $10 value by itself.

Bespoke Post offers all manner of curated boxes, including apparel, hobby kits, cuisine, decor, and more. This box was definitely on the practical side. It felt a bit like a men’s grooming box (i.e. Birchbox or a shave club box), but the quip kit was a signature big item that set this apart and identified it as a Bespoke Post box. This is sure to get a lot of use.
