Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – November 2019
The Vegancuts 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. Vegancuts also offers a monthly Snack Box and quarterly Makeup Box.
This review is of the $22.95 a month Vegancuts Beauty Box.
Vegancuts sends a single package to subscribers who get both the beauty and snack boxes. The beauty items are separated into a little bag, which looks like more of an environmentally-friendly material than the old bags. (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.)

Vegancuts Beauty Box November 2019 Review
The Vegancuts Beauty Box usually contains a variety of haircare, skincare, and bath and body products. There’s often one makeup product, as well:
The box came with this information card. I am liking the new design of the information cards with animal pictures on the front. For what it’s worth, I quit eating meat after going to Australia and feeding lambs with a bottle and then being served lamb for lunch. So the picture kind of has meaning for me, as well. (That was 26 years ago. I guess it made an impression because I still don’t eat meat. Moving on…)
William Roam Sense Aloe Soap Trio – Retail Value $15.99
This brand shows up fairly often in the Vegancuts Beauty Box. I tend to prefer larger soaps in the shower, but these small ones are a good size for hand-washing. I keep a soap dish next to my sink for when I receive items like this in subscription boxes, and one of these soaps is resting there now. These are actually quite nice for hand-washing as they are non-drying, which is important for me at this time of year when I have to wash my hands a lot due to sick pets but when my skin is *this close* to cracking and bleeding all the time due to the dry air.
Curology the Moisturizer (0.8 fl oz) – Listed Value $9.99
I’ve linked to the Curology website but because this is a customized subscription, I don’t seem to be able to independently verify the price. I have a sneaking suspicion that if I signed up for Curology, I would end up with a different product. This one has a silicone as the second ingredient (dimethicone) and silicones and my skin tend not to get along very well (this was far from the worst silicone-containing product I’ve tried, for what it’s worth). This is not to say they’re bad, because discussions with coworkers have taught me that some people really like skincare with mineral oil, silicones, and other ingredients that kind of make me greasy. This has a light texture that is *almost* what I am looking for in a moisturizer for morning, but I was kind of shiny under my makeup by the end of the day. There was also some Curology product literature.
Derma E Rose Cleansing Oil (0.25 oz) – Estimated Value $2.25 (Buy 2 oz for $17.99)
I like a lot of Derma E products and they show up in this box fairly often so I get to try some things I didn’t know they offered. I am looking for a new cleansing oil and have been happy with this one so far. Even though the sample container is small, it has enough for several uses. I use a mattifying primer, a thick foundation, and a setting powder, and this oil has been great as the first step of a double cleansing routine — it removes everything and it is non-irritating even though my skin is a bit sensitive at the moment.
Florapy Even Skin Tone Sheet Mask in Sunflower Lemon – Retail Value $7
This was a nice experience with using a sheet mask — not too strong of a scent, plenty of serum (I used it in the evening), and it fit my face well. I can’t really say if I saw any of the skin tone-related benefits, though, after only one use. I’m not entirely sure I would buy enough of them, at $7 each, to see benefits. That’s kind of expensive for a sheet mask. I suppose the trade-off is that it’s vegan, whereas a lot of K-beauty brands are not.
Delizioso Skincare Chamomile White Tea Rejuvenating Night Cream (2 oz) – Estimated Value $47 (Buy 1.7 oz for $39.95)
This is a little unusual, but the product size provided in the subscription box is LARGER than the one offered on the manufacturer’s website. The ingredients in this one agree with my skin pretty well — I just find that I have better luck with natural oils (i.e., safflower, avocado, hemp, and such) than with artificial ingredients applied to my facial skin. This is nice and thick, which I prefer in a night cream. Chamomile is soothing (or at least it has been so far for me) and white tea has some antioxidants, which is something I always like to see in skincare.
Inika Vegan Long Lash Mascara – Retail Value $33
This is one of the more expensive mascaras I’ve tried. I like the brush and find it difficult to make a mess of my mascara application (I struggle with some brushes from other brands). It maybe slightly lengthens and thickens and it does definitely show up. It is not quite as easy to remove as some other vegan mascaras I’ve tried (like the one from last month), I usually have to use makeup remover, cleanse, and then do a second swipe with toner or micellar water to get the rest of it off. It has not irritated my eyes thus far, even though they are super dry this winter. I believe there was variation and some subscribers received a different item in place of this one.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $115.23 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. That’s quite a good value for this subscription and even if one of the high-value items doesn’t work for you, the other items together add up to a little better than the cost of the box. The moisturizer maybe wasn’t the best fit for me but overall, this was a really good box that I’m getting a lot of use out of. I’m a particular fan of the cleansing oil and the night cream.
