Bare Necessities Review – Necessities Shipped Monthly

Bare Necessities Review

Bare Necessities Review

Bare Necessities is a subscription box that send a backpack full of basic necessities to men and women.  Each month you will get a month’s supply of: shampoo, deodorant, body wash, toothbrush/paste, razors and shaving cream. This is the first of this kind of box (that I found) and I like the simplicity of it.  No fluff, just the basics.  I was sent a package to review, and I was excited to see what was inside.

The Details:

Cost: $29.00/mo, $159.00/6 months, $299.99/ 1 year

What's in the box? Each month, you can expect to receive a Sudz decorated drawstring bag, along with all of your Bare Necessities including:
Shampoo/Conditioner, Deodorant, Shaving Cream, Razors, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Body Wash, And More! Along with a variety of complimentary surprises from our valued sponsors…

Everything shipped in this bag and was shipped in a Fedex Bag.  Everything arrived safely and nothing leaked.  I received the girl package.

The Bag; $10.00 est:  This is an estimate of value but this is a cute little backpack.  It has the Bare Necessities logo on the front.  This can double as a small laundry bag or a tote to the shower.


Daily Defense Shampoo and Conditioner with Macadamia Oil 16 oz $13.95  This is safe for color treated hair and is enriched with Moroccan Argon Oil,  It smells good and reminded me of coco butter. There is also the matching conditioner.  I do wish the shampoo or conditioner was a bit more girly/floral.


 Olay Satin Care Shave Gel with Shea Butter 2.5 oz  $2.96:  This is shaving gel with Olay/shea butter added.  This combination leaves your legs silky smooth.

Gillette 2 Razor 3 pack: $ 4.00:  I couldn't find this online, so I made an estimate on price.  I don't think Gillette makes the 2's anymore, because I couldn't find them on their website.  I like that these are name brand, but wish it was more feminine like a Venus.  I do use men's razors though, because they do provide a great shave.


Daily Defense Macadamia Oil Body Wash $1.05:  This brand goes with the shampoo and conditioner.

Pink Loofah $1.00: Loofah's are some of the best bath inventions.  These can trap mold, so it's good to have a new one hanging around, for replacement.


Lady Speed Stick Invisible Dry 1.4oz  $2.89: This provides 24 hour protection and is said to leave your black clothes without white residue.  I have used the same deodorant for over 10 years, so I will try something new.

Colgate Triple Action Toothpaste 2.8 Oz  $1.50: This has cavity protection, whiter teeth,  and fresh breath.

081Bare Necessities included a flyer about their subscription.  They also mentioned they have a program to review your products in your box and earn BN bucks, that can be used on your next box.

There was also a coupon for UBER to save $20.00 on your first ride.  This is a service in cities that will pick you and take you where you need to go.


Final Thought:  This box/bag had a total value of $37.35.  This was higher than the $29.99 cost, but lower than the $70.00 value.  I like the concept of this subscription.  I do wished there were some more name brand shampoo, conditioner and body wash.  I would love to have some Olay Body Wash, or some fruity or flowery shampoo and conditioner.  I also wish the razors were made for women.  I can see this subscription being good for kids in college.  Who wants to spend their money on shampoo vs pizza?  This would also be a nice care package for people in the military.  If you are interested in Bare Necessities, click HERE.

    I love this! I use man razors and IMO they work a lot better than women’s.

    I use the daily defense naturals body wash and it’s great! Give it a chance. :)
