Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - box

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.)

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - card

Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month. There was also a lot of promotional literature for the products this month so I just photographed it next to the products.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - cleanser

Everclen Facial Cleanser (2 oz.) – Value $4.10

I love that this is for sensitive skin. It’s also paraben free and fragrance free. I actually like getting skincare in boxes because I’m more likely to use it up – makeup goes so slowly for me.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - eyeshadow

Pacifica Super Powder Supernatural Eye Shadow Trio (0.10 oz) – Value $10 (?)

Well, this is a much more wearable set of shades than anything from the last two months. Although there’s actually not much pigment (see swatches below). It starts out as a cream but it has a powder finish, which I like. (I couldn’t find this exact item in the Pacifica store so I linked to a palette with what I believe is a similar formula.)

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - osea

Osea Atmospheric Protection Cream x 2 – Value $4.50 (?)

These are tiny tubes and they’re not marked with a size so the value is something of a guess. I’ve been using this for two days now and I like the (light) fragrance and think it absorbs well. I should get a week or so out of each tube so I guess that is a reasonable amount for sampling. This includes seaweed extract which is supposed to help protect against sun damage.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - handcream

The Wonder Seed Hand Cream in Spring Lavender (2.4 oz, FULL SIZE!) – Value $12.95

This has a nice lavender scent (authentic, not fake and cloying). I have been using it at night before bed and I like it so far. Hand cream is something I go through quickly because I am always washing my hands (cleaning up after pets) and my skin gets dry. This uses hemp seed oil and is free of parabens, sulfates, artificial fragrances, and dyes!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - teeth

Smart Ash Tooth Whitener + Detoxifier – Value $1 (?)

There’s not a whole lot of product in this container. It’s maybe enough for one or two uses? I’m a little afraid to try it because it came with a card that had a lot of warnings and directions for use. Has anyone tried it and do you recommend it?

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - swatches

Yes, all three shades of the eyeshadow are swatched on my arm. One of them is just VERY hard to see. On the other hand, if you are going for a subtle look, these might work. They all have a little bit of shimmer to them.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $33 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box.. Some of those values are complete guesses, though, since there were no sizes given for the tooth whitener and the moisturizer. I, personally, was happy with this box – I like getting skincare and there were three skincare items here. However, the Pacifica is a brand repeat (third month in a row for Pacifica products, at least). I’m also happy that the eye makeup is not black or dark brown or deep blue; I’ll definitely get more use out of these colors. I appreciate that the value seems a little more spread out among the products as opposed to last month. Overall, I like the box, but it may not be for everyone, especially if you are looking for more makeup and less skincare.

What do you think of the July 2015 Vegan Cuts Beauty Box?

  1. I loved Smart Ash! The warnings on the postcard weren’t for anything serious. I think they were just trying to give us tips for using it. The powder is a bit messy, but I found all the tips helpful (i’ve been using mine in the shower.) You only use a very little bit, so the sample I received lasted me for about a week. Besides my teeth feeling really clean, they’ve also gotten significantly brighter! I’m really happy I found a whitener that’s natural and doesn’t hurt my teeth.

  2. I got the Smart Ash in another box and, if it’s the same sample (which it appears to be) you’ll get maybe 10 uses out of it. It’s lightly mint flavored, but mostly tastes like nothing. It totally neutralizes gross morning mouth and you will be surprised at how white your teeth are after use. I know it seems wacky, but it’s an amazing (and really expensive) product.

  3. I got a shampoo instead of the facial cleanser.. not a fan of just receiving a shampoo, if anything why not conditioner?!
    I love the smart ash, I use it in the shower. Totally helped remove plaque easily and made my teeth smooth and shiny and I think even a bit whiter. Im considering buying it!
    Not a huge fan of the eyeshadow but it’ll make a nice gift. The ossea is lovely but so small and hard to get all of the sample out. Hand Cream is nice as well. That being said I think I may cancel this one, it’s costly since I’m I Canada and the last three boxes have just been alright for me. Super appreciated getting to try different products though!

  4. I really like the Smart Ash! There is enough for about a week of use because you use very little each time. I dribbled some on two shirts during my first two uses, so be sure to follow the directions. It is a bit messy. With that said, I plan to buy some! I liked the fresh, clean feeling after use.

    I also really liked that Osea moisturizer. I am trying to justify a full-size purpose!

    • Aargh. Should say purchase, not purpose.

    • OK, maybe I will try the Smart Ash at night before bed, on one of those nights I am wearing a black t-shirt.

      The Osea is $44 for a full size container!

    • If you’re afraid of getting your clothes dirty, they recommend using it in the shower. That’s what I do.

    • Does the Smart Ash actually whiten your teeth? I’ve really been wanting to try it. Also, any coupon code for it included? 🙂 It’s expensive! Thanks!

      • I could not tell whether it was actually whitening my teeth. I should have taken photos to compare, but I only used it for about a week so I’m not sure I would have noticed any changes. No coupon code, unfortunately, but the full-size jar is supposed to last for 6 months.

      • I noticed a big difference with mine. And it doesn’t wear the enamel like whitening toothpastes do. And I agree to be careful using it. Even when it gets in the sink, it’s hard to rinse out…well, harder than toothpaste. I just carefully unscrewed the top, dipped my electric brush in, put the brush in my mouth, closed my mouth and turned it on. I was able to use it with little mess. But closing the mouth is key with the electric toothbrush. 😀
