Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – August 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.)

FYI, COVID-19 Update: Learn more about how Vegancuts is focusing on safety and supporting the community right here.

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 August 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.

 

Curology the Moisturizer (0.8 fl oz)

Two mystery items were listed on the information card, and this was the first. I can’t list a price because Curology is a subscription that customizes products based on your skin concerns, you can’t just buy individual products. We have received this product before from Vegancuts. Although it seems like something that would work for me — it is a gel-textured moisturizer — in practice, it is just not compatible with my skin. It has a silicone as the second ingredient, and while these may work for some people, they tend not to absorb into my skin. I did go ahead and try this again, anyway, and noticed that my skin was oilier than usual the next morning and also there was some pronounced redness in some areas. But, your mileage may vary.

 

Delia Organics Facial Spritzer with Clary Sage and Niacinamide (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $25.99

I am just not on board with spraying my face with anything. I rarely leave the house anymore and when I do, it is with glasses and a mask, plus my skin is pretty oily these days, so extra moisture is not something I need. However, I read the ingredients and there were things like salicylic acid, witch hazel, and tea tree, and so I thought I would use this as a toner. I sprayed some of this on a cotton pad and wiped it over my face, and it worked really well as a toner. Since it is alcohol-free, it may be more of a cool-weather toner for me. I like the way this smells, too — it’s kind of herbal.

 

Scentuals Rosehip Beauty Oil Blend (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $22.43

This brand was new to me and this product worked really well with my skin. I used it as a nighttime moisturizer and it absorbed pretty well, did not leave my skin oily, and actually improved redness. I find that if I exfoliate well during the day, facial oils are totally compatible with my oily skin. This one also smelled good (not super floral, as rosehips are the fruit from rose plants and not the flowers) and has some vitamins and antioxidants.

 

Queen B and Company Cran-Orangesicle Lip Balm (30 mL) – Retail Value $6

I am at a point where I am happy getting lip balms in subscription boxes because I do not subscribe to many beauty boxes these days and I don’t have an overabundance of lip balms. And this product is new to me. However, I kind of have this aversion to lip balms that are applied with the fingers after all the recent public health guidance about not touching your face and mouth. Anyway, in the safety of my own home and with clean hands, I applied this. It is really hard in the tub (there is shea butter there, which is definitely solid at room temperature, and I’m not familiar with the behavior of cranberry seed oil, which is another key ingredient, but my guess is it also has a high melting temperature). So anyway, it is hard to get much out of the little pot and onto my lips, and as a result, I don’t feel like it lasted a long time, although it does smell good. If anyone has tips on how to get more out of the pot at once I am open for suggestions.

 

Florapy Sheet Mask, Sunflower Lemon – Retail Value $7

If you subscribe to this box and have not used this yet, please be careful opening it, as there is a ridiculous amount of serum in there and I poured like a teaspoon out onto my (pajama) pants because I was not expecting it. (I use a lot of K-beauty sheet masks so it is not as if I am unfamiliar with sheet masks. This was really a LOT of serum.) Anyway, this has lemon extract which is going to have some vitamins that work as antioxidants to potentially combat free radical damage. The sunflower part of the name is apparently related to sunflower oil for hydration and moisture. It took a long time for the serum to dry, probably because there was so much of it there, so this may be more of a spa night kind of product than an everyday use product. (It’s also kind of spendy for a sheet mask.)

Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box because you can’t buy the Curology moisturizer separately and it was listed as a “mystery item” on the information card so no price was provided. However, I would say this was a pretty typical month for Vegancuts. I really liked the Scentuals oil as it was just quite compatible with my skin and moisturized and reduced redness (which I hadn’t even been expecting) without making my face too oily, and I also found the facial spritzer to work pretty well as a toner. I might be interested in trying some other Curology products in the future; right now since this moisturizer does not work for me, I am not interested in the Curology subscription. However, if some of their other products did not contain silicones and were more compatible with my skin type I could potentially be convinced.

  1. Just got mine today and love it! I love spray toners, and this one smells and feels great! I haven’t opened the lip balm yet, but it is a very generous size and will be nice for fall. The bottle of Rosehip oil is huge! One of my mystery items was Dusty Girls vegan lip shine in Argyle Pink. Very pretty, and I love the packaging! The other is Hype plant based nail enamel, also in a pretty color.

    • After reading the review, I was honestly a little disappointed. Then, I opened it! This might be one of my favorite boxes from Vegancuts. I got the same surprises as you, Mart GT, They are a little too cool toned for me, but I know someone who will look great in them! I love love love the lip balm. It’s very subtly scented orange to me and isn’t necessarily fall feeling. I’m glad I started using it instead of waiting.

      As for getting it out of the tub, Ragan, I just applied a little extra downward pressure with my fingertip. It “broke the seal” of the surface, enabling me to get a little (or not quite so little) chunk, instead of just a bit of liquid oil on my fingertip. I just thought of another way but haven’t tried it. It would probably work great with one of those little spoons used for face masks – also solving the using your fingers issues.

  2. As long as the mist is fine, I find facial spritzers to be a welcome addition, especially in the hot weather.

    • Same here. Especially if you can store them in the fridge.

      It’s a treat when you come home from grocery shopping in 100 degree weather and spritz after putting groceries away!

  3. I feel like this is usually such a strong box, but this was disappointing. “Mystery Item” to me seems like we ran out of products and are using items from past subscriptions.

    I’ll assume it’s Covid related, and hope next month is better.

  4. Just an FYI a few months ago I found the Scentuals Rosehip oil at TJ Max for 7.99.

    • Oooh, that’s good to know, thanks! I’ll start keeping an eye out for it 🙂
