Brickell’s “Free” Sample Kit: Pictures & Comments
If you’re an adult man and are an avid Facebook skimmer, then there’s a very good chance that the “Brickell” Facebook ad has crossed your line of sight. It’s a pretty tempting ad. It offers men to “Try Our Premium Men’s Natural Skin Care & Grooming Products, FREE”. So, of course, I figured I’ll give it a try and let our readers know what’s inside, and choose my favorite item.
First, the reason why I put “Free” in quotations is that you do have to pay a shipping fee. The odd thing is that on the Facebook Ad landing page the shipping fee was $6.95, which is what I paid. But on this landing page, the shipping fee is $2.99. My mistake. I should’ve searched around to get the cheaper shipping fee. $2.99 is a great price for a plethora of sample products; $6.95 = not that great. Lesson learned, though the whole thing highly unusual and unexpected. Why would they have different shipping fees for different landing pages?

The Restoring Eye Balm: Lately, I’ve actually been struggling with some dryness around my eyes. I don’t know why it started or what exactly it’s from, but it’s been bothering me for the last week or so. So, the Restoring Eye Balm was a great way to try to see if it would improve the dryness. So far, I’ve put it on a couple of times before I went to sleep and my dryness has definitely improved slightly the next morning. It hasn’t solved the issue completely, but it has definitely been helpful. Will I buy a full size one? Not sure yet. I would need to see how good it is over a longer period of time.
(One of Brickell's products — their face wash — was also recently included in one month of Gentleman's Box, so if you'd like to read more about that, click here.)
Conclusion and Value
If you’re looking for some core grooming products and Brickell has caught your attention, you should definitely shell out the $2.99 and give these 15 different products a try. I’ve already tried and used up a bunch myself, and they really do give a wide range of different product samples to try. It has opened up my eyes to some cool new variations of men’s grooming stalwarts (the Charcoal Face Wash, for example, was very interesting). I don’t know of any other men’s grooming company that is willing to send this much product for people to try for only $2.99 S&H. It’s definitely a solid and unique value for a consumer interested in finding some solid grooming products.
