Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 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 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.)

This review is of the Vegan Cuts Beauty, $22.95 a month, box.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box June 2018 Review

The Vegan Cuts Beauty box usually contains a variety of haircare, skincare, and bath and body products. There’s often one makeup product, as well:

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

Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 Art Naturals

Art Naturals Black Peel Off Mask, 3.4 oz – Retail Value $13

I’m still working out how much of this to use to actually get it to dry in the amount of time I have to use masks and to get it thick enough to peel off. I suspect there is a happy medium somewhere. But, I will say that considering my thus-far imperfect attempts, it definitely pulls gunk out of my pores and leaves my face in an excellent state for subsequent makeup application.

Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 Conditioner

Puna Noni Naturals Plumeria Conditioner, 3 fl oz – Estimated Value $4.75 (Buy 12 oz for $19)

This is a new brand for me. This particular product is a thick white cream with a heavy floral aroma. I tried it on two separate occasions and I have to say, it is not right for my hair – I was totally frizzy the next day. It may work for some, just not me (for reference, I have long, Caucasian-textured, color-treated hair that is somewhat dry).

Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 Dermae

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Clay Mask – Retail Value $4

I love clay masks and this individual package takes the guesswork out of how much to use (and keeps a larger container from drying out). This is mostly kaolin and bentonite with a lot of plant extracts containing antioxidants. I think this did a good job of removing excess oil without drying my skin out but I think you would have to use it a few times a week for a few weeks to really see the brightening effects.

Manna Kadar HD Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black, 4 mL – Listed Value $12

This particular product is only on eBay and available from third-party resellers on other websites like Amazon (and is not on the Manna Kadar site) so I think it is discontinued. However, it was new and sealed in the package so I won’t complain too much. I needed a new mascara since I recently got over an eye infection and had to throw my old one out and this works well enough and doesn’t irritate my eyes, even with contacts in.

Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 Modicum

Modicum No. 4 Birch Tree Water Spritz, 0.34 fl oz – Buy 1 oz for $28

Ah, a “water spritz.” I just do not use sprays and spritzes as part of my skincare routine and I really don’t understand their popularity. Whenever I receive one in a subscription box, I try it out as a toner, which is what I did here (it has rose flower distillate in it and that is often in toners). I would say it was OK for that purpose and I will probably use it up. For my skin type, this would be a better winter toner than a summer one. It is alcohol-free and non-drying and also has methylsulfonylmethane, a source of sulfur which may help clear up the skin over time.

Vegan Cuts Beauty June 2018 Shower Gel

William Roam Sense Shower Gel, 1.5 fl oz – Estimated Value $4.34 (buy 7.6 fl oz for $21.99)

This lathers pretty nicely despite appearing to be sulfate free, which is nice. I am unsure, even after using the entire container, what precisely it smells like (the product page says it is “light” and I don’t know that I would agree with that, though it’s not precisely heavy either). It’s kind of floral and kind of spicy and kind of something else that’s neither one of those things. Anyway, I felt clean after using it and it didn’t leave any residue on my skin.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $43.65 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. That is a bit lower than the usual value although I did generally like the contents (and it is still more than twice the cost of the box). I was a fan of both masks (though I find it a bit unusual to receive two) and I was happy to at least try the conditioner, since it was a new brand for me, even if it didn’t end up working out for my hair.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you would receive the July box. They don’t have a standard cut-off date, but boxes ship until their next month’s spoilers launch (typically between the 26th and 29th of each month). If you are interested in trying some of the items, though, watch the Vegan Cuts shop for sales – they offer large bundles of past items fairly regularly.

Value Breakdown: At $22.95 for the box, you are paying approximately the following per item:

  • Black Peel-Off Mask: $6.01
  • Conditioner: $2.20
  • Vitamin C Mask: $1.85
  • Mascara: $5.55
  • Water Spritz: $5.34
  • Shower Gel: $2.01

  1. I was not super thrilled with getting discontinued Manna Kadar. I have that up for swap, and I already swapped the peel-off mask, because peel-offs just aren’t my thing. But I loved the conditioner, liked the spritz as a toner (nice smell and consistency), and the sample mask was nice too.

  2. I actually loved the conditioner. I have thin hair that tends to get oily fast, and this was the perfect amount of hydration and detangling, but it did not weigh my hair down or make it greasy. So, I’m guessing it’s just on the lighter end of the spectrum, and those with thicker and/or drier hair will want something more substantial.

  3. Not my favorite box either.

  4. I was a bit confused by the Plumeria product. I threw away the little tag that was attached to the cap, but I was almost sure it said body lotion. Then I look at the bottle and it says Conditioner. The card that came in the box said skin cream. A few websites said we would get body lotion or conditioner. So which one is it???
    I have to say that I wasn’t wowed by this box. I love face sprays, but this is like our 3rd or 4th one in a row. We got a lavender one, a rose one, and now this birch one. I think I can only take about 4 months of any one box before I get tired of it. I’ve jumped around from Vegan Cuts to Birchbox to Sephora Play to Petit Vour to Boxycharm. I think I’m just done with all of them!

    • I just went by what the plumeria product said on the bottle itself.

      Interestingly, if you look up the plumeria body lotion and conditioner on the manufacturer’s site, they have the same ingredients in the same order. So, it was awful conditioner for my hair, but maybe it would be fine as body lotion.

      I seriously never use face sprays and would like to not get any again. Some of them work as toner. Maybe it is because I have always worn glasses or contacts, but the idea of spraying something in my face just seems like something I don’t want to do.

      • That Plumeria product almost reminds me of a Beauty Protector sample I’ve received a few times from Birchbox. On the bottle it says that it’s both a leave-in hair product (or maybe it says conditioner?) & a body lotion. I haven’t tried them yet, but I put them in my body lotion stash. I’m afraid to see what it’ll do my hair if I try to use it as a hair product since my hair can get crazy enough (frizzy) as it is.

        I used to think that face sprays were gimmicky until I started to amass quite an assortment of them from boxes, and then I decided to start trying them. I must say I’m hooked! I really like them for after a toner & before a serum. But, I totally get what you said about spraying products at your face isn’t your thing. I was the same way, but I think it’s finally grown on me. 🙂

        • It did not go well with my hair, which is why I described my hair type up above, in case someone with different hair might have different results. I guess anyone could use it as a body lotion, though.
