Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – December 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 December 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 usually has an information card, but did not this time.

 

Osea Sea Minerals Mist (1 fl oz) – Estimated Value $11.18 (Buy 3.4 fl oz for $38)

If you have read any of my beauty box reviews, you will know that I am not into the whole “spraying stuff in your face” trend. However. This is a nice toner, especially for winter when it is dry and I’d prefer to avoid alcohol-based products. This is full of vitamins and minerals and seems to help a small amount with oil control, which is a big plus for me.

 

Acure Brightening Under Eye Supergreens Hydrogels – Retail Value $4.99

The color in these comes from kale; they also have caffeine. I used them in the morning after a night when I didn’t sleep well and I think maybe they helped a little? What’s also nice is that they didn’t slide down my face since I wanted to sit upright so I could read. This is probably not a type of product I’d regularly purchase, but they were fun enough to use since I had them on hand.

 

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser (1 fl oz) – Retail Value $11.95

I was familiar with this product from back in the day when I had like 10 beauty box subscriptions (I’ve pared it down somewhat since then). As it happens, I really like it. I exfoliate my face frequently as doing so seems to enable me to use facial oils without breaking out, and this one is a pretty gentle sugar scrub that doesn’t bother me even if my skin is irritated (from a breakout, or a skincare experiment gone wrong, etc.).

 

Saavy Naturals Lavender Chamomile Handcrafted Soap (1.2 oz) – Estimated Value $1.44 (Buy 5 oz for $5.99)

I don’t mind getting bar soap in subscription boxes as I switch back and forth between bar soap and shower gel in the shower. However, this is not really a good size for actually using in the shower — it is much too small for that. (Vegancuts sends bar soap from time to time and it is usually a tiny sliver like this.) So I have put it in my handwashing soap dish next to my bathroom sink. It is kind of nice to use in the evening as the scent is relaxing. This was a new brand for me and I am kind of interested in exploring some of their other products.

 

Emani Prismatic Lipstick in Xanadu (0.1 oz) – Retail Value $18

It is always fun to receive a full-sized lip color. I couldn’t tell at first when I opened it, but this actually has two sides, one is more pink and one is a nude/brown color. They are pretty close together in shade and tone. The website (linked to in the product name) suggests four different ways to wear the colors. I think this is a great concept. These colors don’t show up so well on me, and I prefer a bold lip in general, but I will use them on occasion. This is sort of middle of the road in terms of actual hydration. (For what it’s worth, my gold-standard lipstick also came from Vegancuts, a few years back.)

 

Wildland Organics Bare Ritual Oil – Buy 1 oz for $38

I am guessing at the size here. I gather this typically comes inside a cardboard tube but mine didn’t (probably there are space limitations for including in the canvas bag, which may also explain the soap size). If this is full-sized, that’s a pretty good value. I am terrible at estimating liquid volumes so I could be off and this could be 0.5 oz instead, which would still be a $15 value. Anyway, this is marketed as a facial oil, hair serum, and cuticle oil (could be good for travel if you want to minimize liquids in your carry-on). Knock on wood but right now I have facial oil and hair oil solutions that are working for me, but my cuticles and the skin around my fingernails are in terrible shape, so I tried using this as a cuticle oil. So far, so good, although I would not recommend using a computer or other electronic device until you’ve given this a few minutes to absorb into your skin.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $85.56 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. That’s a great value for this box, assuming the oil is indeed 1 oz. I think the highlights for me were the Osea mist (toner) and the Suki cleanser, but everything was useful and at least Saavy Naturals and Wildland Organics were new brands for me. I thought this was a good overall box for moisturizing and hydrating and renewing the skin, which is something I do tend to focus on this time of year.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’ll receive the January box.

COUPON: Use code MSA to save $5 off your first box!

Value Breakdown: At $22.95 for the box, you are paying approximately $3.83 for each item.

  1. Hi Ragan, thank you for the excellent review (as always) and the link to the Red Apple lipstick page. I love getting HG referrals, especially if they’re still available to purchase. Thank you!

  2. I am sad I missed this box. I love Osea, their Atmospheric shield cream is my favorite daytime moisturizer. I just discovered it in Petit Velour Plus box a few months back. So I am really interested in trying more things from the brand, but they are a pricier skincare line. I would’ve bought this box just for Osea, but other items seem interesting. I was just wondering why MSA doesn’t review Petit Velour? I am new to the box, but so far I’ve used everything they send me. It quickly become one of my favorites. And I wish Vegan cuts would post spoilers, unless I missed them somehow

    • They do review Petit Vour. Use the search function to see the latest.

  3. Was the lipstick a bonus item? I didn’t receive it (this is my 2nd Vegancuts box) and it doesn’t show on their site with the other Dec box products.

    • OK, I have done some investigating and it appears the lipstick was a new subscriber bonus gift. I did not know this at the time since there was no information card this month. I also did not know they listed box contents on the site. What I will do in the future is check on this before writing the review and separately list bonus items and not include them in the total. That way it is clear for everyone.

      • Thanks for clarifying, just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything! Didn’t mean to make extra steps for you, but I appreciate the review & update! 💜
