Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – April 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 April 2020 Review

The Vegancuts Beauty Box usually contains a variety of hair care, skincare, and bath and body products. There’s often one makeup product, as well.

We are back to having information cards this month. I like the animal pictures they usually use, and bees are important, but I have this irrational fear of insects so I did not spend a long time looking at this one.

 

Tasu Blueberry Papaya Mask (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $28

Papaya extract has enzymes (like papain) that provide gentle exfoliation; it is found in some gentle skin peels. So I was cautious and only used this for the shorter end of the suggested time (10 minutes) and that was about right for me. I feel like it got some gunk out of my pores and didn’t dry my skin out. In fact, I just didn’t use moisturizer afterwards because it was kind of moisturizing on its own. Also, the blueberry has some antioxidants that may help prevent some sun damage (but of course always use a good SPF product as well). This smelled more floral to me than fruity (?) but overall I was a fan and was glad to have a full-size container to continue using.

 

SoulSpring Soothing CBD Muscle Rub Salve (0.15 oz) – Estimated Value $3.75 (Buy 2 oz for $49.99)

Again with the CBD this month, I see. As it happens, I have been having some muscle pain this month. Because I hurt myself lifting weights a few months ago, I am doing more cardio lately, and that is doing a number on me at age 42. Also I think the work setup in my office is better for me, ergonomically, than my folding table and monitors on stacked boards setup at home. So I felt like this was a good time to try out a product like this. Well, it kind of made my knee oily but I didn’t feel anything from it otherwise. So, I just can’t recommend this — it costs a lot and, for me at least, didn’t do what it promised.

 

Masama Mekabu Shine Serum for Hair (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $34

Confession time. I’ve been working from home since March 16 and I have brushed my hair exactly once a week in all that time (before I go grocery shopping on Saturday mornings). So my hair is in an interesting state (oddly, not particularly tangled). I used this before my weekly trip to Whole Foods and I really, really liked the way it felt as I was applying it (it is mostly silicones). It did make my hair soft. But it did not do anything at all for frizz and flyaways. Might still use it for shine, once I am going back to the office again (and who knows when that will be) but I will have to also use some spray or gel to keep things under control on top of my head as well. (This may be better if you heat style your hair, which I don’t.)

 

Osea Ocean Lotion (1 fl oz) – Estimated Value $7.60 (Buy 5 oz for $38)

I don’t know if I have used bath/body products from this brand before, though I am familiar with a lot of their facial skincare products (we got a cleanser from them last month). This absorbed nicely without leaving my skin greasy and it has a pleasant scent. It has some antioxidants from seaweed, which is also nice. The only thing I don’t like about these bottles: when they come with thick products (lotions as opposed to toners), you really just cannot get the last like 15% of the product out of the bottle through the pump.

 

Pacha Soap Co. French Lavender Whipped Soap and Scrub (1.8 oz) – Estimated Value $2.16 (Buy 10 oz for $12)

I really like this. I use scrubs every day and this one smells fantastic and also lathers pretty nicely. This is a new brand for me but next time I am in the market for scrubs (I just bought 4 huge ones at Ulta so it may be awhile) I would definitely consider them. (They also have some really beautiful soaps but I have like a metric ton of bar soap from subscription boxes that I need to use first, and that’s AFTER having given a lot away.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $75.51 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. That’s more than three times the cost of the box, which is pretty good for all vegan beauty products. I was introduced to some new brands that I am definitely going to shop from in the future, and although the muscle rub didn’t do much for me, I was a huge fan of the soap scrub and the mask, will use the lotion, and can make use of the hair serum even if it isn’t a complete solution for me. Overall I think this was a pretty good month.

  1. I ordered after I saw this review and some other good reviews. The sub arrived quickly, however the Tasu blueberry mask had been replaced by Naobay origin sensitive skin recovery mask. It’s a good brand and a decent formula, but I’m disappointed I didn’t receive the blueberry one. There was no note regarding the substitution.

    • I just got my box Sat. and there was a note re: the mask substitution. They will be sending the Tasu blueberry mask as a bonus item in a future box. The Tasu mask was delayed due to the pandemic. I think that is really nice of them to do that, as this has happened to me with other boxes and I never got the item I wanted in the first place!

  2. That soap scrub! My roommate buys that scrub from Whole Foods all the time and she’s in love with it. I’ve been using Pacha Soap’s bar soap too and I don’t think it’s very different from other bar soaps but it’s a little more hydrating and the cool designs are neat haha

  3. I might resubscribe as this looks like a lot of my favorite brands and products. It is nice to see a box that is good and affordable!

  4. Got my box yesterday, and loved it! I was pleasantly surprised to see the Osea product was for the body, as I automatically assumed when I saw the spoilers, that it was their moisturizer. I’m also thrilled that Pacha body scrub was included too. I’m not really a body scrub fan, but the Whole Foods in my neighborhood sells this brand and sells a ton of their scents, and I’ve always eyed them because of how colorful & fun the different scents look. Having said that, I ended up gifting it to my mom since she loves all things lavender.

  5. This was a first time box for me and it came today. Already tried the lotion and agree it absorbs nicely and has a place on my at home desk already. I went a little sub box nuts this month so I will see if I keep this one going but based on this box, I sure am tempted!!

  6. Mine has shipped, and now I’m looking forward to it even more! I’ve been wanting to try the Ocean Lotion, and all of these items will brighten my days.
