Vegancuts Beauty Box Review + Coupon – July 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 July 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.

 

Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Hair Mask (30 mL) – Estimated Value $5.70 (Buy 200 mL for $38)

I’ll be honest, in the past Vegancuts hair items haven’t worked well for me, but this one is marketed for dry hair, which I have (despite not having been to the salon since early March and only coloring my own hair once in the meantime). This mask is lightweight but, surprisingly, it did not all instantly soak into my hair. It had good “slip” and I was actually able to use less than the whole container to coat the length of my hair. (I will probably get at least 3-4 more uses out of this package.) It did not have super dramatic effects that stood out beyond those of a regular conditioner for me, but also isn’t out of the price range I’d pay for a regular conditioner, and also I have a lot of Ulta points I could use to get a full-sized package for free.

 

Wicked Good Perfume Roller in Sugared Violets (10 mL) – Retail Value $15.95

I am normally not into perfume oils — I’m more of a fan of traditionally-formulated, alcohol-based scents, because I tend to accumulate a lot of them and oils have a shorter shelf life. (This one has a grapeseed oil base, which is good for about 6 months.) I’m also not normally into floral fragrances. So this was a pleasant surprise. It has sugar notes and vanilla notes and I like both of those, and they work well with the violet. This reminds me of something from my childhood and I’ve been racking my brain, trying to figure out *what* now for a few days, but I keep coming up blank. Anyway. I guess I will be smelling like violets around the house for the next few months because it doesn’t like I’ll be back to the office anytime soon! (One application on my wrists lasted about half a day and was more noticeable while I was working out than when I was just sitting around.)

This Way Face Sunscreen SPF 35 (15 mL) – Retail Value $23.66

Sunscreen is a good item to include for summer and I like getting a bunch of different brands to try because the various products apply differently. For what it’s worth, this is a small package that really retails for the listed price; it is a product from the UK. This is a mineral sunscreen with some skincare ingredients. Although it is listed as being for the face, I tried it on my arms first, as I have had some bad reactions to sunscreens in the past (usually chemical ones, though) and I never try them on my face until I’m sure they’re compatible with my skin, which this seems to be. However, this is tinted and the tint is not the same as my skin tone. It has a pink sheen to it that looks kind of weird to me. I can only imagine it would also look strange on someone who is not super pale like I am. I get the point of the tint, which is that a lot of mineral sunscreens leave a white tint on you, and the tint is trying to hide that. And there may be some people with this skin tone. But I am not one of them. Still, it should work well enough for dog walks around the neighborhood where I’m not really getting close to anyone.

 

Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes (10 count) – Estimated Value $3 (Buy 30 wipes for $9)

This has a lot of glowing reviews on the Ulta website but it is not for me. This would never substitute for regular deodorant in the summer in Georgia. I went for a walk around the neighborhood from about 10:30 to 11 AM so it was already warm, and then I used one of these, and it made my underarms smell like coconut for all of about 5 minutes and then it was like I hadn’t ever used anything at all. Sometimes when I write these reviews people ask what I recommend instead and I can honestly say I have never encountered a natural deodorant product that works for me and I use Dove Advanced Care antiperspirant because it works even after summer exercise in the South and doesn’t give me a rash (I have really sensitive underarm skin). (FWIW Dove is cruelty-free but owned by Unilever so do with that information what you will.)

 

Delizioso Skincare Chamomile White Tea Rejuvenating Night Cream (2 oz) – Estimated Value $47 (Buy 1.7 oz for $39.95)

This is a little strange in that it is the exact same product as one I received less than a year ago, also in the Vegancuts Beauty Box. I think this is one of the first times I have received a repeat product that wasn’t at least a different scent or something. It is a good product. I found that my impressions this time around were similar to last time in terms of how compatible it was with my skin — it contains natural oils as moisturizers and those are more effective for me, for example. It has some antioxidants, which are great for summer skincare, and doesn’t have artificial fragrances, which I prefer for facial skincare. A little goes a long way, too.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $95.31 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. That’s one of the highest values I’ve found for this subscription for a long time. I don’t know that I would pay $23.66 for imported sunscreen (!) and it was a little strange that the night cream came in a larger jar than the standard package size from the Delizioso website, but overall, I was happy with most of the products, with the hair mask standing out as a new, potentially day-to-day-use item for me. The perfume was also a pleasant surprise. I am honestly liking the lack of makeup in this box lately as I haven’t worn makeup for months since I’ve been working from home. (And you can always subscribe to the quarterly Vegancuts Makeup Box if you feel like you’re missing out in that regard.)

  1. I try very hard to be an ethical vegan as well as a food vegan. I don’t want products from China. I have no clue how, when, where, and what they were made. I don’t know how they get here (boat/plane etc) and what the packaging contains. The fuel needed to ship these things from China and the impact it has on the environment. I’m not even sure the hours these people/children work to make this stuff.
    prefer American Vegan/CF/sulfate/paraben/thalate/mineral oil/gluten free products.

    This is not the box for me. Sadly. Very sadly.

    I sent Vegan Cuts an email asking if their items are made in China. Here is the response I got:

    Hi Sam,

    Thank you for reaching out. I’d be happy to help. It is possible that some of our partners manufacture their products in China. Please keep in mind, if a product is made in China it is still vetted prior to being included in our box and 100% vegan.

    Please let me know if I can be of any additional help.

  2. Just FYI, Dove is not CF. They sell in Mainland China, and are thus subject to animal testing. Great review though!

    • The link I posted (direct from the brand) addresses that issue.

    • That’s why she had stated to do what you will with that info. Oftentimes brands do claim that they are in fact cruelty free even though they are sold in China so honestly it is all a bit confusing.

    • Dove and other brands like First Aid Beauty, Herbal Essences, and wet n wild apparently have a deal with the Chinese government that their products won’t be subjected to pre-market animal testing. That doesn’t take into account the possibility of post-market testing, but My Beauty Bunny recently published an article pointing out post-market testing could happen in *any* country, so why are we singling out China? And apparently no post-market has occurred on Dove, etc., products since being sold in mainland China (the reports are public record).

      So do with that information as you will!

  3. Does the perfume remind you of the old school violet candies they used to make? They taste like perfume.

    • I was thinking the same thing! The violet gum my grandfather used to chew, Choward’s (they also make candies).

  4. This was the last box in my 6-month sub, and I really want to re-sub, but I think I’ll wait until the holidays to see if any discounts are offered or if I see a spoiler between now & then that really grabs my attention. If no holiday discounts are given, then I’ll wait until just after the holidays to re-sub, most likely to another 6-month term. I’ll miss it in the time being though 🙂

    I was really happy they included a Wicked Good perfume in the box. It leans a bit too sweet and cotton candy smelling to me, but I’ll still wear it. I can appreciate how long it lasts too! Perfumes typically disappear on me within 30 minutes, but this one lasted a few hours!

    I was also happy they included those Pacifica deodorant wipes. I went through a pack of those last year, and really liked them. They did leave me a bit wet for a minute or two right after applying, but it dried down fairly quickly, and they left me odor free by the end of the day.

    I gifted the sunscreen since I prefer SPF to already be mixed into my moisturizers (moisturizer then sunscreen is too much for my oily skin), but I’m looking forward to trying the night cream and hair mask!

    • I really like the sweet, candy-like fragrances…

      My skin is oily too but I have totally been slacking with skincare while working from home. My regular foundation (from Bobbi Brown, and fair warning, probably not vegan but one of the only products that doesn’t leave my face seriously shiny at the end of the day) has some SPF in it but I haven’t worn foundation since March.

  5. Hi Ragan! I really liked the Wicked Good perfume also! It is nice to get an item from another sub box that is interesting without having to subscribe to the other sub box! I have not tried the Pacifica wipes because I am working through some other natural deodorants. I have been using various natural deodorants for more than a year and have not had any issues. I wonder if the reason some people don’t feel they work is that they maybe don’t give a long enough period between the aluminum based deodorant that they are using? I know some people have medical conditions like hyperhidrosis and would have to have an antiperspirant for sure.

    • I live in Georgia and I work out 6 times a week plus walk my dog every day (and my AC was broken for a few days last week also) and even though I am working from home I just can’t afford any kind of break-in period for a deodorant product — it has to work on day one or it’s no good for me. I understand others may be in different situations (cooler climates, no time outside, different types of workouts or no workouts, etc.) and it’s nice that there are a lot of products out there to cater to different folks.

      Also, FWIW, as a scientist, I don’t believe there’s any good evidence against using aluminum-containing underarm products.

      • I know exactly how you feel Ragan, I live in Alabama which feels like hell even in winter months ( had to have the air on for Christmas the year before last!) I work out five days a Week and my job is one where I’m outside all the time. I really gave it a go and tried with the Kopori deodorant and while it was the best of all the natural ones I’ve tried it doesn’t prevent all the sweat ( I realize that that’s bc of the lack of aluminum) and I am a big time sweater. It does cover any smells but I just can’t stand all the sweat so I gave up after a month. I’m sure if I lived in a drier climate I could make it work but what can you do🤷‍♀️

  6. Hi Ragan,
    Great review, thank you. I agree – it’s heartening to see the animal photos to emphasise the reasons for choosing vegan (or cruelty-free at least). And I’m reassured in my decision to not try natural deodorants! I like this box well-enough but I’m still not feeling any kind of compulsion to subscribe yet. I think I might head over to the Wicked Good website, though. I’m pretty sure that Brandi reviews that sub, and that one’s got me very intrigued. Thanks again. Your take is always interesting!
