Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – June 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 June 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, although there’s been less makeup lately.

The box came with this information card. I like the animal pictures they have been using lately.

 

All Good SPF 30 Mineral Sport Sunscreen (1.4 oz) – Estimated Value $7.46 (Buy 3 oz for $15.99)

Summer is almost here and even if you are practicing proper social distancing, you may be likely to spend a bit more time outside, taking walks (I have a puppy after all) or gardening. So sunscreen is a timely item to receive. This is a mineral sunscreen with zinc oxide as the active SPF ingredient. I do prefer mineral sunscreens as I seem to have skin reactions to chemical sunscreens. As with many mineral sunscreens, this kind of left a white sheen on my arms, and while that doesn’t bother me as I am naturally pretty pale, it may be a concern if you have somewhat darker skin. It did not have a noticeable scent and I do feel that it was long-lasting (I did not get wet, though).

 

Dirty Lamb Ultra Day Serum (1 fl oz) – Retail Value $44

Not sure why the information card said 2.7 oz because you can see the picture of the bottle for yourself. Anyway, this is full-size and is a nice pair to the night serum we received from this brand a few months ago. The night serum didn’t work for me very well; it wasn’t a bad product, it just wasn’t right for my skin type (which tends to be oily). This was a little better, especially when used sparingly (like two drops). I’m not sure why it says it is a non-greasy formula when it is ALL oils. But I can use facial oils if I am good about exfoliating, and I have managed to keep that up (exfoliating, that is) even during quarantine. This is probably more of a night product for me, despite the name. It also works to smooth flyaways on top of my head, although it’s kind of a spendy product to use as a hair oil.

 

ESW Beauty The Pink Dream Moisturizing Raw Juice Mask – Retail Value $6

Lately we’ve been getting one single-use item in this box; last month it was a nose strip but sheet masks often show up as well. If you are interested in using vegan beauty products, sheet masks can be hard to come by, because so many of the K-beauty ones out there have collagen or honey or snail secretion filtrate. So it is nice to see what’s out there in terms of vegan products with this subscription, although this one is a little expensive for daily use. Watermelon has lycopene, which is a great antioxidant. Grapefruit has vitamin C, which is also an antioxidant. And rose water has toning properties. So right there on the front of the packet are three functional ingredients. This was gentle and didn’t have a strong scent despite several potentially scented featured ingredients, but I prefer unscented facial skincare when possible, so I’m OK with that. (And yes, my nose is working well — in fact, my sense of smell has been stronger than usual as I’ve worked from home these past few months.)

 

Dr. Botanicals Lemon Superfood All-in-One Rescue Butter (50 mL) – Retail Value $14.99

There are all kinds of interesting suggested uses on the package (like heel balm or face moisturizer) but I went with the information card suggestion of using it as body lotion. Mostly because I don’t care for the scent of lemongrass (which does NOT smell like lemon) and I didn’t want it that close to my face. It is very thick and more suited to being a body product anyway. But it made my legs nice and smooth the next day. This has a lot of antioxidants and isn’t gritty even though it contains coconut oil. Also I am glad that “Lm” is not an actual chemical symbol for anything (unlike Po for polonium and Co for cobalt on products we’ve received from this brand before).

 

LeeAnni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution Light Toner, Serum, and Moisturizer (0.5 fl oz) – Estimated Value $4.37 (Buy 2 fl oz for $17.48)

I kind of want different things out of my toner and moisturizer and I wasn’t sure before using this if the same product could do both of those things. I don’t think it can, after using this. To me, this is more of a thin, light moisturizer, which is actually a very good moisturizer for summer days. Be careful when you pour it out of the little sample bottle, though, as you really don’t need much and it’s easy to get more than you need. This is a new brand for me and they don’t make that many products but their whole thing seems to be simplifying skincare, which I will admit is an attractive idea at times when I am particularly lazy (like during quarantine). This page suggests it has a lot of other uses, some of which seem farfetched, but if you are looking to travel (I am certainly staying put until there’s a coronavirus vaccine, but let’s say this is for some hypothetical future date) and didn’t want to deal with a lot of liquids in your baggage, this may work for some of those uses. I will use the rest up as a daytime moisturizer, though, as this did not increase the oil level of my skin throughout the day, which is a lovely feature.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $76.82 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. That is a great value at more than three times the month-to-month cost of the box. I thought everything was useful for summer in different ways (sunscreen, light moisturizer, summery-scented body butter) so it seemed well-curated.  I also don’t mind getting all skincare and no haircare or makeup as I honestly haven’t been doing anything with my hair or wearing makeup for over three months at this point, but my skin still needs maintenance. I learned about several new brands and can feel good about these ingredients and products not being tested on animals and being maybe a little better for the environment (the sunscreen is reef safe, for example) than conventional products.

  1. That’s interesting you said lemongrass doesn’t smell like lemon, because I made a soup a few months ago with lemongrass and it released a lovely lemon scent while I was dicing it and added a nice subtle lemon-y flavor to it. I guess its scent didn’t smell like a pure lemon, but it definitely brought up memories of a lemon scented product from my childhood. 🙂

    I really enjoyed this box, but I ended up gifting the toner/moisturizer because I couldn’t really decide how I’d fit it in my routine.

    • I have to agree with Ragan that I don’t really like the smell of lemongrass.

    • Hi Luna,
      Whoever you gifted the toner/serum/moisturizer little bottle is probably really going to like it! I agree with Ragan that it is a good summertime moisturizer. I have actually been layering it on top of the Dirty Lamb day serum for a nice dewy finish to my face. The little bottle will last awhile. Too bad you didn’t try it but I understand if you don’t want to disrupt your normal skin care routine:)

  2. I loved this months box! For me it just keeps getting better. I was most excited to see the Dirty Lamb product as I have seen it in other subscription unboxing and reviews and it looked good. While I have given up on the notion of any miracle anti-aging products, I do think skin maintenance is important to slow the inevitable march of time and to look better day to day. I wish I had started this consistently before I reached the decade of 50 plus. I am glad to get to try the products offered in this box and the focus on skincare is appreciated!

    • Carla – Have you tried Paula’s Choice Resist Intensive Wrinkle Repair Retinol Serum?

      • Hi Nancy. I have not tried that but have heard good things about Paula’s Choice. I will check it out. Thanks!
