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 $24.95 per 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.)

Vegancuts Beauty Box March 2021 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.
On to the items:
Marrakesh Kahm Soothing Treatment (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $20.99
It’s been a while since we’ve received a hair product in the Vegancuts Beauty Box. In the past, the hair products haven’t often worked for me, but this one is supposed to target frizz and smooth hair, both things I’m interested in.
I would strongly suggest using the instructions on the website rather than on the bottle as they make a lot more sense (the website refers to “pumps” while the bottle refers to “drops” but there is not really a way to get “drops” out of this packaging).
I don’t blow dry or heat style (or really even brush my hair these days since I don’t leave the house) but I applied this to damp hair and let it air dry and I do have to say, my hair is pretty smooth today. I’m going to keep using this for a while and if the results are consistent, I would buy this again.
G*psy Soul Organics Face Toner, Lavender Flower (2 fl oz) – Retail Value $30.00
As you will know from my past reviews, I am not really one for spraying things in my face, but I am happy to apply things to a cotton pad and use them that way (this does seem to result in a faster rate of product use, however). This definitely has a strong lavender scent, but as it happens, that is a scent that I enjoy, and it really doesn’t linger.
This one is supposed to be useful for oily skin and I am all about that. It has green tea (a source of antioxidants), willow bark (a source of salicylic acid), and witch hazel (for toning), all of which definitely agree with my skin. So far it seems to be working out for me, though I will note that I recently bought a Clinique toner for under $30 that was nearly 7 times the size of this one.
FYI -- I am not spelling out the name of this brand because the obscured word is considered a racial slur. This is not really the time or place for discussing that, so I will leave you with this link, which is written by a Romani woman and includes lots of links to further reading in case you are interested in learning more.
SeSpring Cleanse It Out Gel Cleanser (1 fl oz) – Estimated Value $3.00 (buy 5 fl oz for $14.99)
This is a K-beauty-inspired brand that is cruelty-free; it is kind of nice to see that (a lot of K-beauty products are not vegan). It is also an effective cleanser for my skin type. Don’t expect to get a lot of lather/foaming, because the surfactants here are gentle (i.e., not sodium lauryl sulfate). This also has tea tree oil which can help with breakouts. It did a good job of getting oil off my face without stripping my skin, and it pairs well with the toner. This one is also free of mineral oil; although some people do fine with mineral oil in skincare, I am not one of them. Anyway, I get excited about receiving cleansers in subscription boxes so I was happy with this.
Acure Seriously Soothing Blue Tansy Night Oil (0.3 fl oz) – Estimated Value $3.90 (buy 1 fl oz for $12.99)
Blue tansy seems popular lately; we received a facial oil with it last month. Acure is generally a brand I like although I note that the picture on their website has different packaging. This smaller size comes with a rollerball and I do not care for rollerballs in facial skincare products, I feel they are not particularly sanitary for the face. I used some for the purpose of a review and it didn’t really sink into my skin but, as we’ve been over in my reviews before, facial oils don’t agree with me. I will be using this on my neck instead as I feel the rollerball will be a good applicator there (my fingers never quite cut it) and my neck is much less sensitive to oils. Plus antioxidants from the blue tansy and kale will be useful there as well. (Actually, the manufacturer website suggests using it on the face, neck, and decollete, so I am not even really repurposing it!)
Verdict: I calculated a total value of $57.89 for this month’s Vegancuts Beauty Box. I was pretty happy with this month’s box. Although there was an oil and oils don’t agree with my facial skin, it seems even the manufacturer finds this perfectly acceptable to use on the neck. The cleanser and toner definitely were compatible with my skin and the hair product seems like it is working so far. All of these products were new to me (though I was already familiar with most of the brands) and there wasn’t really any overlap so you could create a whole skincare routine with the contents of this box if you wanted.
