Vegan Cuts Beauty Box April 2018 Subscription Box Review

We received this box for our review. Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure
Notification

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.

I had a glass item that was wrapped in bubble wrap and everything was packed tightly in the box and arrived in perfect condition.

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.

DEAL: Use coupon code MARCHBEAUTY to get $10 off your Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. Valid until 4/30.

The flip side of the card listed each item and the retail value. The April 2018 box theme is Lavender Dreams!

Everything in my box! I received 6 products this month, let’s see what they do!

Yes To Carrots Vitamin Enriched Kale Facial Wipes ($5.99) is for “depleted” skin. I’m sure that describes my skin type nicely.

The ingredients include kale for a vitamin E boost and carrots for their vitamin A, which may encourage healthy looking skin.

I wasn’t expecting the wipe to be pinky orange! It made it kind of hard to tell if I had removed all of my face makeup, which also tends to be pinky orange. Good thing I always follow makeup removal with a second cleansing!

Tree To Tub Soapberry Shampoo ($4?) I was intrigued when I saw this in the box. It is made with a saponin from the soapberry plant, and is scented with essential oils (although you can order unscented and create your own personal scent with oils). I have wondered if my scalp problems could come from all the perfumes and chemicals in traditional shampoos. I’ve switched to clean products for my face, which has calmed down a bit, maybe I should make the switch for my scalp, too.

Soapberry juice, olive oil, and aloe are some of the ingredients listed and it smells like real lavender, not that fake chemical lavender that smells bad. It wasn’t quite the same lather as my traditional shampoo, but it did a good job and I didn’t have to use a conditioner afterwards. Plus, I had an awesome hair day!

It even came with its own soapberry and directions for its use!

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub ($5.50) I think this was the first product I ever tried from Derma E and it’s my favorite of all of their items so I was very happy to get a nice travel sized container.

Dead Sea salt and volcanic sand are very fine in this scrub and you can vary the pressure at which you rub it in to keep from going overboard. It smells like lemonade and didn’t leave my skin raw.

Mr. B’s Necessities Facial Mist & Toner ($16.95) I like a hydrating mist, although I tend to use them on a cotton pad as a toner. This one smells amazing.

Only four ingredients made the cut for this all-natural product and it worked well.

Crazy Rumors Hibiskiss Lip Color ($8.20) Ohh, a taste of the tropics!

I have a hard time finding beeswax-free lip balms but thanks to Vegan Cuts I don’t have to worry about finding it in my monthly box (my daughters are sensitive to the wax). Instead, there was jojoba oil, shea butter, and macadamia nut oil.

The flavor was fruity and fun. I wore this as a lip balm and could only go over my lips one time, otherwise it turned opaque in a mod sort of way. This shade is described as a “shimmery, light pearlescent pink”. The flavor was berry yummy.

I received a card with more shades listed…

…and a coupon code for a future purchase. Swatched below.

Orglamix Cream Highlighter in Illume ($18) I know Orglamix has their own subscription box, but this was the first product I’ve tried from this brand!

It looks kind of dark but it blended very well and didn’t look muddy on my face. Apply wherever you want a bit of sparkle – cupid’s bow, brow bone, cheeks, nose, you know the drill!

Here are the lip balm (top) and highlighter (bottom) swatched on my inner arm. They are similar shades but the lip balm has a bit more of a rosy tone to it.

I always enjoy my Vegan Cuts Beauty Box! I love that the products are cruelty-free and vegan and I feel good about putting them on my skin/body/hair. This month was mostly about the face and I liked the variety of items sent. I loved trying the shampoo and my daughter loves the wipes (it’s dance season so she needs extra makeup removal). My box had a value of around $58.64, yay!
