Vegan Cuts Beauty Box December 2017 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends 4-7 items ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skin care. Best of all, they are 100% cruelty-free and vegan, plus most items are natural and non-toxic! Monthly recurring shipments are $22.95 with free shipping in the USA (there is an additional charge for other countries). This sub is also available in 6 or 12-month terms that do not renew but that do earn you a discount.

Vegan Cuts doesn’t offer customization and sends items that are suitable for almost everyone. They promise not to send foundation or other items that match a specific skin tone and instead send makeup items that are as inclusive as possible with possible variations in shades. They also promise a value of at least $30 but have sent boxes that are significantly above that mark. Vegan Cuts sends deluxe “travel” sized or full-sized products and rarely sends single use packets.

Everything arrived safely packed with brown paper squiggles.

There was a product information card that included a coupon code for a shop purchase and info on how you can win a free box by sharing your box on social media.

The flip side of the card listed each item and the retail value. December 2017 box theme is Bold Beauty!

Everything in my box! I received 5 products this month, let’s see what they do!

Koils by Nature Leave-In Conditioner with Argan Oil ($3.33) This is where a little customization would come in handy – this product is intended to “remove knots, snarls, and tangles from thick kinky textured hair.” I, however, have stick straight super fine hair so I will have to pass this along to someone who can put it to use. I am sure someone who has this hair type would be disappointed to receive a volumizing product so hopefully over the course of a year we will see a variety of hair products for everyone. It smells really nice and is made with a variety of nurturing oils, such as argan, macadamia, and shea butter.

Timeless Organics Timeless Eye Serum ($29) is full of all-natural oils and herbs that are supposed to be anti-inflammatory, help reduce puffiness, and moisturize this delicate area.

Coconut oil, coffee bean extract, and rosemary essential oil are just a few of the ingredients in here. This has a light, lotiony feel to it and absorbs quickly. The scent is very herby, with rosemary being the strongest note.

Herbal Transdermal Papaya Enzyme Soft & Silky Mud Mask ($16) Oohh, this one smells amazing and fruity!

Clay, papaya, and neem oil all give their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties while drawing impurities from the skin. Enzymes in the papaya help break down the bonds of dead skin cells so they can be removed rather than hanging around and dulling the skin.

I was a little worried that this would irritate my dry, sensitive skin and I could definitely feel it harden and pull at my skin, however, after I rinsed it off I didn’t notice any redness and my skin felt pretty good!

ellovi Mint Chocolate Lip Butter ($5) I love a short ingredient list, and this moisturizing lip balm is made with just 6 ingredients!

Sunflower, macadamia, Hawaiian coconut, African shea, European cacao, & peppermint are all that’s in here. This lip butter is so smooth and had a pleasant taste that I liked, but then, anything with peppermint floats my boat!

Estate Cosmetics Wet Matte Liquid Lips in Shade ($12) is a new product not yet available, but coming soon, according to Estate Cosmetics Instagram account.

This product is cruelty-free but doesn’t say “vegan”. It contains squalane, which may come from either sharks or plants. There is very little info on their website.

It has a flocked applicator and takes a bit to dry, but stayed put until I ate something and the oils made it break down.

Here it is swatched on my arm. The shade “Shade” dried to a brown nude-ish pink. It lasted forever on my arm and reminded me of a similar product from Laritzy. There are other similarities, such as both lines saying they are either born or designed in Montreal.

The December Vegan Cuts Beauty Box had 5 products from a variety of beauty categories – I love when that happens! I loved the mask and lip butter, but had to pass along the conditioner. The lip balm and eye serum will get used. This box had a value of around $65.33, which is more than twice the price paid for the box!

    Perhaps you could have tried to use the leave in conditioner as a deep conditioner (before or after shampooing) instead. Some hair products can always be repurposed in ways other than what is listed.

      Amber, thanks for the suggestion – I have already passed it along to my daughter, who has thicker hair. I looked over the hair products that I have received from Vegan Cuts in the last 12 months and they sent a leave-in conditioner, two thick conditioners (like the December one), two hair oils, and a liquid “dry shampoo”. I am simply hoping to find a volumizer or something similar in the future!
