Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – June 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

vegancutsbeauty-june-2016-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 sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month.

Clarisea Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant for Face (1 oz) – Value $3.60

I’m familiar with this product from multiple Birchbox Mystery Sample Packs. I like it though, and I will use it. It’s a bit harsh on its own, plus it tends to dissolve kind of quickly in the shower (where I typically use it). But, if you mix it with a bit of non-water-based cleanser, you can get great exfoliation that’s not super harsh. This also has charcoal to help clear out the pores.

DeVita Solar Protective Moisturizer Mineral Sunscreen (0.5 oz) – Value $5.19

I’m pale and skin cancer runs in my family, so I wear SPF every day, even in winter. I like getting it in boxes because then I don’t have to buy it. This has micronized zinc oxide for SPF. I’m happy it’s a mineral sunscreen because I have some reactions to chemical sunscreens. This is also pretty moisturizing and not too oily, so great for summer.

Here’s a look at the Clarisea product.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach (full size!) – Value $19.90

This goes on smoothly and is fairly long lasting. I don’t know if color variations were sent out, but the shade I got should work for a lot of people. It’s not my favorite liquid lipstick of all time, but it is probably in the top 5 (my lipstick collection has over 300 items in it…).

Mai Couture Vitamin C + E Blotting Papier (100 sheets) – Value $12

This is the first time I’ve tried anything from this brand, though I’ve seen them in lots of other subscription box reviews. They were good at removing oil and shine without removing makeup. They were just a little bit difficult to tear out of the booklet. I do not think the vitamins are going to penetrate my makeup and do anything to my skin, but they won’t hurt either.

Here’s a look at the blotting papers.

Glow for a Cause Solid Perfume in “Wish” (0.4 oz) – Value $16

There are vegan and non-vegan versions of this product, but I’m assuming the vegan version was sent! This is described as having “sparkling light florals, white tea, and bergamot with light musks.” I like it, but I do think it is fairly faint.

PureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge in Bamboo Charcoal – Value $8.49

I like konjac sponges and use them frequently. But, they don’t last forever. They start coming apart and I even had an old one grow mold once. So, anyway, having a replacement on standby is good. I like the gentle exfoliation and the charcoal definitely helps with my pores.

vegancutsbeauty-june-2016-swatch

Here’s a swatch of the liquid lipstick. This isn’t really as red as it appears in the picture. It’s more of a deep, dusky rose kind of color. (Sorry, I was having a super bad skin day when I photographed this box so I did not take a picture of it on.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $65.18 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. That’s definitely above the cost of the subscription (it’s almost 3 times as much, actually) and the mix of items was great. I like everything in the box and I especially like that the value was more evenly spread around this month and there weren’t any really tiny samples. This is one of my favorite Vegan Cuts Beauty Boxes in recent memory (your mileage may vary, but I’m happy!).

What do you think of the June 2016 Vegan Cuts Beauty Box?

  1. Is this box customized to your own Beauty Profile?

  2. I recently ran across a picture of a dog after it had been “animal tested” on, and it was the most horrible thing! It broke my heart and I have not been able to get it out of my head since. I’m in the research phase of how to find cruelty free products and how to incorporate them into my life and replace my old standbys if they are not cruelty free. Thank you so much for this review! I think I definitely need to check out this box! 🙂

    • Good for you AmySoup! It’s not easy to do, but it’s important.
      FYI – you can find a list of cruelty-free companies on PETA’s website. Here’s a link, not sure if it’ll post: http://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/index.aspx They also have a search engine if you want to find out if a particular company tests on animals. If the link doesn’t show up here, just use the “shop” drop-down on their home page.

    • If you’re still looking for cruelty free brands, Lush is a good one. Check the UK site for exclusive products and in some cases (depending on what country you live in), it’s cheaper to order from there. Good luck with your search!

    • Hi Amy!

      I just want to tell you that it’s such a wonderful step you’re taking, making the transition to cruelty free. There are a slew of great resources to help you in your journey. Here, of course, is the perfect place to find cruelty free subscription boxes, and I use Logical harmony to help me weed out what is and is not a cruelty free product. There is a lot of information out there, and some of it is conflicting, so do your research. ☺️ Congrats on making the choice to help save animals!
