Vegan Cuts Beauty Subscription Box Review – February 2017
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 also offers a monthly Snack Box and quarterly Makeup Box.
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.)

ColorpHlex Home Care Nv Leave-in Treatment (1 fl oz) – Value $5.50
I am familiar with this product from another box (it’s been awhile and I don’t remember which one). I like to use a bit of leave-in on wet hair to help detangle (this one is good for that). I do color my hair but think I would need to try a full-size bottle to really see the color preservation effects.
Crazy Rumors Chocolate Strawberry Lip Balm (0.15 oz) – Value $3.49
We received a different flavor in a previous box. I think this one is more to my taste. Also, for what it’s worth, this is one of the best vegan lip balms I’ve tried. It doesn’t get all gritty like the ones that are full of cocoa butter and coconut oil (this has neither of those).
Herbal Transdermal Deep Pore Mineral Toner (2 fl oz) – Value $3.75
I love getting toner in subscription boxes. This is a little different – it has a ton of trace elements (90 of them!) and also tea tree oil and vitamin C, both of which do wonderful things for my skin. This is alcohol-free and it has been quite gentle on my skin, which is nice for winter. I am skeptical of some of the scientific claims on their website, but the toner is a good toner in that it gets traces of leftover makeup off my skin and helps me feel a little tightness/tingling (some of the tingling may be from wintergreen oil, though).
Oral Essentials Toothpaste (0.8 oz) – Value $3
I’ve received this toothpaste in a subscription box before but it’s been a long time. I like that it doesn’t contain SLS (which can give some people, including me, canker sores). However, it also does not contain fluoride, which is a must for me. I have been using this to clean my mouth guard (I grind my teeth, or I used to).
The Ariel Co. “Cupid” Lip Scrub – Value $9
This smells/tastes really good. Apparently, the flavor is “cotton candy bubble gum.” It is also an effective scrub, which I need since I had a cold last week and did a lot of mouth breathing, which in turn dried out my lips. (This is nice to use in combination with the lip balm from up above, too.)
Emani Eye Trio – Value $20
We received this in a past Vegan Cuts Beauty Box, but I got a different color this time. According to this spoiler post, different colors were possible. Anyway, I am happy with the combination I received. These are the sorts of colors I use frequently anyway, and it turns out the dark gray doesn’t look so dark when applied as a shadow. The pigment is buildable, as well.
Here are swatches of the eye colors. I am pleased that the darkest color softens out to a gray, which is much more wearable for me as eyeshadow since I don’t typically use shadow as liner.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $44.74 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. That’s not the highest value I’ve ever seen for this box, but it is comfortably above the cost of the subscription and I am happy with almost all of the items. I don’t mind receiving items I’ve received before as long as they are different colors and/or flavors, which was the case for the lip balm and eye trio. I feel that this was a pretty solid month for the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box.
