Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – January 2020

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 January 2020 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.

We are back to having information cards this month. There was also a coupon for one of the brands in the box.

 

Aura Cacia Tranquil Chamomile Aromatherapy Mineral Bath (2.5 oz) – Retail Value $3.57

This brand shows up in Vegancuts every now and then but they do a good job of spreading around the product types (last time we got an oil that is working really nicely for my hair). This is enough for one bath or, if you use it like I do, at least 2-3 heated foot baths. It’s a wonderful, calming scent for right before bed, too!

 

Plantfusion Complete Plant Collagen Builder – Listed Value $3.99 (Buy 11.43 oz for $43.99)

Well. This is an unusual inclusion. I mean, it’s not any stranger than getting those Hum Nutrition gummies in other boxes, I guess. Although there is a great deal of scientific evidence showing that oral consumption of collagen has numerous benefits for the hair, skin, nails, and such, vegans and vegetarians are well aware that collagen is derived from animal tissue, so we can’t take it. This has some of the amino acids found in collagen (obtained from plant sources, of course) as well as some compounds that promote collagen production. I mixed it into my smoothies over a couple of days and it blended well although I had to add a bit more liquid than usual. You would need to consume this daily for a long time to see an effect, though.

 

Honestly pHresh Naturals Sugar Mint Prebiotic Deodorant (2.25 oz) – Retail Value $9.99

If you have read some of my other reviews, you will know I am not a fan of natural deodorants. But, this one is free of baking soda and I have been home all week, by myself, so I figured I would give it a try. I didn’t smell particularly bad at the end of any one day but I should also note that it is the middle of winter and my house is cold and I just wasn’t sweating (not even particularly much during a workout in my frigid basement exercise room). I ended up giving up because I still want an antiperspirant, but this seems pretty gentle if you are looking for something of this nature that is free of baking soda, and it does smell good.

 

Fleur & Bee Eyes Eyes Baby Anti-Aging Eye Cream (0.6 oz) – Retail Value $22

This was probably my favorite item from the box. I love really thick eye creams for nighttime. This one is unscented and appears to have no artificial dyes, and it is gentle and hydrating and non-irritating. (For what it’s worth, I have been inundated with full-size eye creams from subscription boxes lately. This is one of the ones I like best but if anyone has any suggestions for what to do with the ones that I don’t care for as much — for example, using them on my neck — I am listening.)

 

Delia Organics Lemon Drop Hydrating Face Balm (1 oz) – Retail Value $15.99

I don’t know what to make of this. It is absolutely solid in the container and gives the appearance of having separated into two layers (but I can’t access the bottom layer; look at the side of the semi-transparent jar in the first picture and you can kind of see a dividing line). This is not the sort of product I can use on my face, it’s just too thick and has too much oil (and yes, I do use facial oils). However, it smells fantastic (“lemon drop” is a good name for it) and since I started using this on my rough elbows, they have become much smoother. (If you are interested in this brand you may want to get in on the February Pearlesque Box.) This would also be a good heel balm.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $55.54 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. It’s maybe not the most exciting Vegancuts Beauty Box ever, but the value is more than twice the month-to-month cost of the subscription, and I quite liked the eye cream, which was worth almost the cost of the box on its own (as well as being a new brand for me to try). Everything this month smelled quite nice too (except of course the eye cream, which was unscented).

To Wrap Up:

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

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

  • Protein powder $1.65
  • Deodorant $4.13

  1. FYI-The Fleur & Bee website has a free (pay $1 shipping) sample pack Of their products. The code is TRY

    • Thanks! I got one 🙂

    • Thanks!! Just got it as well.

  2. Ragan, depending on the consistency of the eye cream, I tend to use ones that are my less preferred ones around my lips and occasionally my cuticles. Of course I’ve also been known to accidentally get out to much of the one I’m using for my eyes and in that “well crap moment” I honestly just smear it all over. Lol. I figure it’s moisturizer so… better than wasting it.

  3. Hey, Ragan (or anybody) ~

    Have you found an anti-perspirant that is cruelty free? I haven’t used cruel items for many years except for deodorant/anti-perspirant because I just cannot find one that is cruelty free (meaning the parent company also is cruelty free). Those natural deodorant-only things don’t cut it for me!

    • I am kind of stuck here because the only deodorant I have ever tried that works and doesn’t make me break out in a horrible rash is Dove (which is owned by Unilever). There are a lot of bloggers with agendas who don’t seem to like Dove but I don’t really trust them as sources of information.

      • Darn. Thanks, anyway!

    • I feel you, Bunny. This is the one category I cannot find a GREAT, truly CF counterpart to. I have a very active and sweaty job (I hike with packs of dogs in open space all day) and the only thing that works for me is Secret clear gel antiperspirant.

      • Hey, Squirrel! I thought about addressing my question to you, too. 🙂 I believe Isomers used to be CF, but I’ve been finding conflicting info lately, so I don’t even know about them anymore. So when I saw Ragan’s post I thought I’d throw it out here… Sigh.

      • :/ maybe it’s where the phrase “it’s the pits” came from lol. Sigh indeed…

    • I have ridiculously sensitive armpits and conventional deodorants and antiperspirants make them break out in a horrible rash – as do many natural ones, I think because so many include baking soda, which is not the best p.h. for the skin. The only natural deodorant that works consistently for me is Green Beaver – and it IS cruelty-free! It’s a smallish Canadian brand, though, so I don’t know if it’s available in the U.S. I do recommend giving it a go if you can find it, though, as it’s baking soda free, smells great, and is effective for me even after a day of work hauling boxes around.

      • Thanks! Does it keep you dry, too?

      • What about purchasing from a small maker on Etsy? They do not test on animals and it supports small business. I am about to try making my own and know ingredients like diatomaceous earth and zinc ricinoleate work really well. Or try making your own, it isn’t as hard as you think and you can buy recipes.

      • Great idea!

    • This may not be helpful to most people, but I stopped wearing antiperspirant and deodorant altogether. I thought it was crazy because I’ve worn it my whole life and I’m huge into smelling good, but my bf doesn’t wear it and he never smells bad. I work in an office and I always shower right after exercising and I haven’t noticed a difference at all (besides teenage years, I’ve never sweat much)!

      I also stopped sleeping on a pillow last year and my chronic neck and headaches have completely gone away. Guess I’m letting go of a lot of things I never thought to question.

      • Interesting!

  4. Unfortunately I don’t think the deodorant will be effective during a hot summer day. It only works *okay* in the wintertime. This was my first box and I was unimpressed aside from the eye cream, which is nice.

  5. You could you moisturizer anywhere on your face, doesn’t have to be around eyes. I would use on my neck and upper lips.

  6. Ragan, that eye cream is my favorite of all the recent eye creams, too! Any idea what’s in there that makes it so great? Have you tried more from this brand?

    • Honestly the first 5 or 6 ingredients listed are pretty standard for a lot of moisturizers. (As you go further down the list you will see diminishing returns in that regard, since they’re listed by weight.) I think I just have a really strong preference for thick (not runny) eye creams, I feel like they stay in place better.

      I have not tried anything else from that brand but there was some vitamin C serum in the Bombay & Cedar box from December (look for the review a page or two back) and Taryn really seemed to like that.

      • I loved that Fleur & Bee serum too, especially because it has Vitamin C and is not oily! Received it in my B & C box also.
        As for other uses for eye creams, I usually gift my extra ones to my three daughters who are in their late teens/early 20s. Even though they are young for anti aging eye creams, a little ounce of prevention can’t hurt! Otherwise, I do what you do Ragan by applying to my neck and decolletage, sometimes dry spots like elbows, knees, etc

      • Thanks!
