Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2016
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.)
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Vegan Cuts Beauty Box
The Cost: $22.95 on a month-to-month basis
The Products: Each box contains a mix of 4-7 full and sample size cruelty-free beauty must-haves, ranging from cosmetics to skincare to haircare. All items are void of toxic ingredients and animal byproducts.

Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month.
I love getting scrubs but this is SO TINY, it is maybe worth one use on my arms. Smells nice, though!
I find I have to use only a few drops of oil-based serums at a time, so this is actually enough for a few uses. It’s hard to say if I am seeing any effects yet, though.
Terre Mere Cosmetics Blush Brush – Value $34
This is good for putting on blush. It’s soft and non-scratchy. It would’ve gone well with the Medusa’s Makeup item had I not gotten a gloss (other possibilities were a blush and a bronzer).
Medusa’s Makeup Lip Gloss in Siren (0.2 fl oz) – Value $9
Subscribers could’ve received a blush, a lip gloss, or a bronzer (all full size, I believe). I am glad I got the lip gloss since I don’t use bronzer and I have far too many blushes (well, OK, I have far too many lippies, too…). This was pretty shiny and didn’t have a lot of color on its own but I like it over one of those Tony Moly Tonytints to keep my lips moisturized. (I am not sure how long this will last but you can buy all 10 Medusa’s Makeup lip glosses in a set for $35 right now.)
Everclen Toner (4 fl oz) – Value $9.60
We’ve seen a lot of Everclen products in the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box lately. They are super gentle and non-irritating. This is probably more of a winter toner for me since I have oily skin (I actually need alcohol-based products during the summer!). But it is very gentle and this is definitely enough to decide whether you want to buy the full size.
Here’s a swatch of the lip gloss. This was actually pretty sheer but added some nice shine.
There were also some coupons and product literature.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $58 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. That’s definitely above the cost of the subscription and the mix of items was great. I am also personally glad to have gotten the lip gloss instead of bronzer. I think if I could change one thing, though, I would make the value a little more balanced – the scrub was so tiny and the serum was quite small and over half of the value was from the brush. If the brush was a miss for you, that would’ve really cut into the value of the box. (I happen to love it, for what it’s worth.)
