What you should know up front about Brickell’s Starter Kit
Let’s get a few things clear:
- This is NOT a subscription box, and there is no monthly fee
- It is FREE (meaning $0), you just cover the $6.95 for shipping
- The Starter Kit comes with 17 samples of their best selling and most popular products

The best part about the Brickell Starter Kit is that you get to sample all the essentials and pick and choose the products you want to use in your routine without having to shell out for full-sized products that you end up not using.
By the way, all Brickell products are natural and organic, nothing toxic or synthetic, and you can choose from scented or unscented versions of their products.
I’m sure you already know the benefits of taking care of your hair and skin, and using good products with natural ingredients is super important and will pay off down the road.
I’ve been using their stuff since 2014, mostly their two face washes and their daily moisturizer. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know the company and the people behind the brand and I’m honored to have them partner with me on this article.
They were also kind enough to send over a few Starter Kits so I could show you what comes inside.
What comes in Brickell’s Starter Kit?
First off, the inserts. One encourages you to share the Starter Kit and for every friend that orders one, you’ll receive $10 off your next purchase. Awesome.
The second is simply a Quick Start Guide; if you’re unsure how to use any of the products or what they do, this guide will answer all your questions.
In the first row of bottles, we have:
Daily Strengthening Shampoo: this has a combo of natural ingredients that help make your hair stronger and fuller, make your hair shiny, and prevent any irritation and dry skin.
All-in-One Body Wash: This is what I’d use if I were in a rush. It’s designed to be gentle yet effective enough to work for your hair, body, and face, and you won’t have to worry about your skin feeling dried out or irritated after.
Clarifying Gel Face Wash and Purifying Charcoal Face Wash:
- The Clarifying Gel Face Wash is recommended for normal to oily skin
- The Purifying Charcoal Face Wash is best for dry or sensitive skin
I personally use the Charcoal Face Wash more, but both work great and my skin never feels dry when using them.
Daily Essential Face Moisturizer: I love this stuff; I use it every day. It does a good job of moisturizing the skin without feeling oily or heavy. My skin absorbs it fast and leaves my face feeling hydrated.
It’s perfect for using right after you wash your face with the gel or charcoal face wash.
Instant Relief After Shave: This after shave is fast absorbing with no alcohol (and no burning). Instead you get that cooling, soothing, hydrated feeling when you apply right after shaving.
On to the first row of tubs:
First up we have the Balancing Toner: You can use this first thing in the morning or even throughout the day. This literally helps balance out your skin tone by reducing shine and minimizing pores.
Renewing Face Scrub: Not totally sure how this differs from a face wash. I’d say it’s the same, but better, since it has little scrubbies in it to help remove the oil and dead skin from your face.
I personally prefer face washes with scrubbies. It feels like you get a better clean after a few circular motions and a quick rinse with water.
Smooth Brushless Shave Cream: To be honest, I probably won’t use this since I don’t razor shave all that often. But based on what I’ve read, you don’t need a brush and it isn’t meant to lather up like your usual shaving creams.
Simply apply this like you would a regular moisturizer and shave with a clean, sharp blade. Simple and effective!
Charcoal Face Mask: This helps extract all the bacteria, oil, and gunk in your pores without drying out your skin.
Just apply a smooth even layer of this stuff over your face (make sure to avoid your eyes and mouth!). Let dry for about 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly until it’s all gone.
Reviving Day Serum: This helps keep your skin’s elasticity and firmness so you stay looking young. You can apply it once in the morning and you should be good all day.
Finally, the last row of tubs:
Repairing Night Serum: This works in the same way as the day serum. It also reduces inflammation, age spots, and the Vitamin C decreases any sun damage, all while you sleep!
Revitalizing Anti Aging Cream: This helps to minimize any fine lines and wrinkles by firming, tightening, and hydrating the skin. There’s a natural ingredient called DMAE that helps the underlying face muscles to contract, which tightens up the skin.
Basically, the skin is affected by atrophying muscles and if the muscles are active, the skin is less likely to fold and wrinkle.
Sounds crazy, but hey it’s in the sample kit, give it a shot and see if you like it 🙂
Revitalizing Hair Conditioner: The conditioner works much the same way as the strengthening shampoo and also gives your hair a naturally fuller feeling and shinier finish.
Restoring Eye Balm: This is the good stuff! I definitely need more of this. This helps brighten the skin around the eye, eliminate wrinkles and lines, hydrates, and reduces puffiness.
Lift the main panel in the starter kit to find more samples:
Beard Oil: Unfortunately I can’t use the Beard Oil, seeing as though I don’t have a beard, but according to Brickell, the oils help to soften the hair and condition the skin underneath. It’ll restore the hairs’ luster and sooth the skin.
All good stuff, so if you have a beard, it’s definitely worth trying out.
Deep Moisture Body Lotion: This is perfect for dry skin on all levels. It contains shea butter and aloe vera, and it really hydrates the skin and absorbs nicely as you apply it.
