Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends 5 or more items ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare. 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.
The easiest way to discover cruelty-free beauty products without breaking your budget. Each month you’ll receive a delivery of 5 or more new products to try, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare.
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. 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.
The flip side of the card listed each item and the retail value. The February 2019 box theme is Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Palentine’s! The shipper for the past two months has been a rose gold mailing envelope but it looks like they are coming out with something else in the future.
Everything in my box! There were 6 items this month.
Velvet Report Dry Sheet Mask ($16) I have never encountered a dry sheet mask before but I wasn’t really a fan after giving it a try.
The inside of the mask has a pattern and you place that part over your skin and then stretch the side holes over the ears to hold it in place. You are supposed to go over it with your hands or fingers to heat up the product and allow it to sink in. Supposedly you can reuse it up to 3 months later. I didn’t feel any difference and I even tried rubbing it on the back of my hand and only felt a slight difference compared to my other, non-treated hand. Plus, I scared my cat when she saw it on my face. She’s not talking to me right now.
103 Collection Antioxidant Facial Toner ($5) is supposed to balance the pH level in your skin, keeping it at an optimum level for skin health.
Aloe gel, tea tree oil, and niacinamide (vitamin B3) are some of the ingredients, along with propylene glycol and alcohol. I have aging skin so I will probably pass this along to my daughter, since I try to avoid products with alcohol in them, although I did give this a try. The smell was fine, nothing perfumey. I sprayed it on a cotton pad to remove all traces of makeup after cleansing and before adding serum and moisturizer.
Dr. Brite Toothpaste in Berrylicious ($6) Hmm, I’m not really sold on a toothpaste that has fruit extracts in it, since I would be worried that they may lead to tooth decay. I do understand that some consumers may want a fluoride-free formula for personal reasons but I’m quite happy with my Colgate.
Ingredients are listed on the back and include coconut oil, stevia, and aloe. The paste was berry flavored and honestly I felt like I was brushing my teeth with frosting. I didn’t feel any “grit” in the product and it didn’t foam up like traditional toothpaste.
Delia Organics Lip Nectar ($19.99) is a lip oil in a rollerball applicator.
Ingredients were listed on the container and are mostly plant oils and essential oils.
I used it at night and it didn’t stay on all night like some products will. It has a nice flavor but I couldn’t feel the rollerball moving when I placed it on my lips, it was more of a dragging motion, otherwise I would suggest using it as a cuticle oil. I do like to apply a lip oil before I use an exfoliating lip scrub, it helps it move more easily on my lips, so I will save it for that!
BONUS! Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum Hyaluronic Acid ($2.45) I received a bonus item from Derma-E. The card didn’t specify the product so it’s possible items will vary. I think hyaluronic acid is in just about most of the skin products I try nowadays but then I have dry, aging skin and it is supposed to help bring moisture to the skin. Vitamin C helps support collagen production and aloe + vitamin E help moisturize skin. It has a slight, pleasant scent from “natural fragrance oils” that I can guess are probably citrus in nature. My skin absorbed it quickly.
PUR Cosmetics Chrome Glaze Lip Color in Rebel ($18) I don’t believe I’ve ever tried a makeup item from this company before! I’m not sure if this is the default lip color everyone was sent or if it will vary.
The applicator is nice, I like the pointed tip so I can line my lips if necessary.
I was very impressed with the color payoff from a gloss! It was very deep but I’m sure it can be blended with brush to tone it down a bit. It felt fine on my lips and lasted for quite a while. It can be layered over a matte lipstick to help the gloss look opaque.
Vegan Cuts Beauty Box always sends items that fit a variety of beauty categories. I was surprised at the lip product, it covered so well and was still glossy! I will use the lip oil before and after using a lip scrub and while the toothpaste wasn’t a favorite of mine, I did enjoy trying it out. The February assortment had a value of around $67.44!
