Maintaining the delicate balance of your facial stubble, perfectly coiffed ‘do, and clear-as-day skin can be cumbersome. And that’s assuming that you’re already a relatively attractive dude. But there’s a new startup in town, backed by DreamIt Ventures, that wants to help you in your daily drive toward sexual relations.
Urban Cargo, a subscription service that delivers “a box of handsome” to your door once every month, knows that personal grooming and maintenance is the first place to start.
These boxes include three or four products each to help you with your various grooming activities, such as shaving, skin care, hair care, etc.
The team was nice enough to send me a box, which was quickly thereafter raided by my male counterparts, filled with the following products:
- Urth Face Scrub (MSRP $38)
- Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula (MSRP $16)
- John Allan’s Shave Cream (MSRP $15.50)
- Pure Badger Shave Brush (Bonus item)
As you can see from those prices, Urban Cargo certainly isn’t sending you crap. These are nice products, which my colleagues have confirmed, and they offer you a few different solutions to choose from in your morning routine.
The idea is that each month covers a different part of your getting-ready process, so you may get hair products one month and shower scrubs the next. Urban Cargo also lets you take a little survey at the beginning telling them about your hair, facial hair, regular grooming habits, and preferences. They even ask you about your birthday — I can only assume this means you’ll get a little something special that month.
What’s perhaps most amazing about the service is that your monthly costs are $14.95. That’s less than any one of the products in the box, so the value is certainly there.
