Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – June 2015
The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. All of their products are vegan (and they tend to be natural, too). They also typically include a nice mix of full size and sample beauty items.
Vegan Cuts sends a single package to subscribers who get both the beauty and snack boxes. The beauty items are separated into a little bag. (If you do not get the snack box, I don’t think you get the little bag.)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Vegan Cuts Beauty Box
The Cost: $19.95
The Products: Each box contains a mix of 4-7 full and sample size cruelty-free beauty must-haves, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare. All items are void of icky, toxic ingredients and animal byproducts, so you can feel beautiful inside and out.
Ships to: US for free, Canada for $8, and worldwide for $15.
Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month.
Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash (0.7 oz) – Value $1.54
Ecolips Bee Free Lip Balm in Lemon Lime (full size!) – Value $3.49
I’ve been using this cleanser for a few days. It seems gentle and it’s really good at getting rid of makeup and oils.
I have a *lot* of lip balms. But the ingredients in this one are good (it’s fair trade certified, gluten free, and cruelty free, too) and I like the way it smells. It’ll get used eventually.
Emani Eye Trio in Coco/Black (full size!) – Value $20
This product can be used as a liner or brow filler (or eye shadow). The colors are pretty dark (although they will probably work for me – I have dark eyebrows) and I will have to practice using this at home first.
Bee All Natural Coconut Oil Soap (0.63 oz) – Value $0.94
This is listed as a sample on the Bee All Natural site so I weighed it on my kitchen scale to get the size. It’s made of only one ingredient – saponified coconut oil – which I think is interesting.
Hello Fluoride Toothpaste in Pink Grapefruit Mint (0.75 oz) – Value $0.63
Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant in Bergamot + Lime (0.5 oz) – Value $2.25
All right, so these two items weren’t great for me. I love the *idea* of toothpaste in non-standard flavors but this toothpaste contains sodium lauryl sulfate, which gives me canker sores in toothpaste form. And I have tried this same deodorant before, in the same scent, and it gave me a rash. However, these were small compared to the overall box value.
Here are the Emani Eye Trio colors swatched. They had pretty good staying power; I had to scrub with soap to get them off my arm.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $29 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. That’s above the cost of the box but below what I’ve come to expect for beauty boxes. I think it’s a little risky for them to have put so much of the value in a single item. I’ve come to expect some swings in value for this subscription and I’ll use most of the items, so I’m reasonably happy.
