Birchbox Man July 2015: Lessons Learned from this Months Box

Leather is techs best friend

Weve always loved leathers soft-yet-sturdy quality, but have been skeptical of the bulk that comes with most leather iPhone cases. Adopted came up with a super-slim version that, though rugged, still feels sleek thanks to a metalized frame. And featuring genuine full-grain leather, its bound to give your favorite belt some healthy competition.

Fragrance can take you places

We all know that scent is strongly linked to memory, which adds to its evocative appeal. But this month brought about some truly transporting olfactory experiences. Take a trip to Kyotoby way of your showerwith Japanese citrus- and herb-infused body wash from das boom industries. Then travel through time and space with a spritz of Arquiste LEtrog, a bright blend invoking an orange harvest celebration in medieval Calabria.

Multitasking is king

Were often told to seize the moment, but how about multiple moments at once? The innovators at Ten One Designs turned distraction into delight when they developed the Mountie. This brilliant little contraption secures your smartphone or tablet to the side of your laptopso you can, say, keep Spotify or Facebook front-and-center while youre working. We took it for a test-drive here at HQwhere juggling tasks is the normand have been hooked ever since.

Sunscreen can (and should) be lifeguard-approved

Talk about epic: We found a sunscreen thats formally endorsed by the American Lifeguard Association. Coolas SPF 50 formula goes on sheermeaning no more white streaksand smells like mango. Suddenly the most important step of our summer routines kind of feels like the most fun, too.

Gateway Styler is a thing

Now the time to try new thingsbut if youre a shower-and-go kind of guy, pomade can be a little off-putting. Test the hairstyling waters with the Well Groomed Ultralight Cream from V76 by Vaughn. True to its name, this featherlight product keeps hair looking kempt but not coiffedand even doubles as a conditioner.
