Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Culture Carton Box for September
Everything that we received in our September “Leather Shoe Care Kit” Culture Carton Box. This assortment features items that help you care for your leather shoes. We think this is an awesome idea as shoes are sometimes the first things people notice about you
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert reveals our theme
The reverse details each of the items that we received along with retail prices
We received 4 brushes in total from American Shine Co. These first two wood backed horsehair brushes are sturdy and perfect for buffing your shoes as a 3rd step in your shoe polishing routine
We love that they come in different colors and the wood backs makes them look really high end!
There was also a subscriber only coupon code included for American Shine Co.
The other two brushes are for applying the polish to your shoes. Shoe shining is one of those things we aren’t well versed in so we’d never seen these before but we think this set looks gorgeous!
Also made with horsehair these are perfect for applying polish but won’t damage or scratch your shoes
We received two 2 ounce tins of shoe polish in brown and black. These polishes nourish the leather while also reviving the shine.
Both of the polishes look alike in the tin but we assure you they are both different colors!
Dr. Squatch Co. Soap
Dr. Squatch’s soaps are wonderfully natural scented soaps that are handmade and cold pressed to give your skin a hydrating and nourishing cleanse
We received the “Nautical Sage” scent that was herbal-y and wonderful!
We also received this 4 ounce bottle of pre-shine conditioner to use as a first step in our shoe polish routine. It neutralizes salt stains and removes dirt yet it also smells tropical like cocoa butter!
And of course how could one polish their shoes without a cloth!
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
A modern classic – this dystopian novel follows a father and son on their road through a post apocalyptic America. It’s sad but the overall message of this book is a good one. So glad to see this included in our Culture Carton this month!
We love that Culture Carton really includes a wide variety of novels in their boxes each month. It never feels redundant!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Culture Carton Box is an awesome way for the modern man to get his fill of high quality lifestyle items and books each month. The presentation is awesome – everything arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing, the products from American Shine Co. are wonderful and we already love Dr. Squatch. And curation is fantastic. They’ve pulled together an awesome kit of shoe shining supplies that anyone from the shoe shining newbie to the shoe shining expert can enjoy!
As far as box economy the Culture Carton costs $45 and for that we received $70 in products which is an amazing deal. Use code TREE to save 20% on your first box.
