Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly subscription box. This box runs you $23 a month, shipping included.
They promise to deliver 4-7 full and sample size products, 100% cruelty free, mostly natural and organic, and paraben free.
Here are my thoughts on the February 2017 box!
This months box contained 6 items valued at around $44.
Emani Eye Shadow Trio in Tango $20 value
This is a trio of vegan shadows, and there were multiple color options you could receive. I received Tango, which I was less than stoked about because the three are not shades I would typically use in a look. That aside, I was excited to try this brand as I have not before. The compact is nice, small and sturdy. I like the sleek basic black packaging, and it would be good for travel. Finger swatched, the shades preform beautifully. They don’t feel too chalky, but not too soft so that they crumble. The color pay off is totally lost when using a brush and putting it on the eyes. The best shade of this trio is the burgandy.
I attempted multiple times to come up with a way to use this that I would be happy with, and really the best use for this trio is very natural, everyday, minimalistic looks. You are not going to get a high impact look from these shades. I am intrigued about this company though, and I intend to look into other items.
The Ariel Co. Lip Scrub $9 value.
Another brand I have never tried! I absolutely love this lip scrub and it was my favorite item in this box. It tastes and smells like cotton candy bubblegum, and works so well! My lips are so soft after using this. I wear a lot of liquid lipsticks, so I have bee. Getting a ton of use out of the scrub. Will definitely purchase from this brand in the future.
Oral Essentials Toothpaste $4 value.
This is a sample size flouride-free toothpaste. It claims to have a dead sea salt and oil blend that whitens teeth without harming enamel. This has a very strong mint flavor and definitely feels like its working when I use it. I haven’t been able to notice a whitening affect, but I will purchase this in the future because it leaves my mouth and teeth feeling clean and it has a better texture than many other vegan and natural toothpastes.
earthly Body Leave In Treatment$4 value.
This sample spray claims to protect hair color and add shine. It has a very strong smell of sunflower, which I am not a fan of in hair care. I used this a few times, but didn’t really feel I could gauge if my hair was benefitting from it. I didn’t feel any added manageability, but I intend to hang on to this and bring along on some warm weather trips I have coming up to see how it holds up in the sun.
Crazy Rumors Chocolate Strawberry Lip Balm $4 value.
I love Crazy Rumors lip balms! They are some of my favorite vegan lip balms out there, so of course I was happy to receive another. These are all moisturizing and every flavor I’ve tried is great.
Herbal Transdermal Deep Pore Mineral Toner $3 value.
I am always very skeptical of new skincare items. My skin is very reactive to certain ingredients so I always proceed with caution. This toner has tea tree oil, vitamin c and wintergreen oil. The grapefruit scent comes from fragrance. I use glycolic acid and vitamin a on my skin regularly, so I tried this only on certain areas of my face. This seemed to only irritate my skin. This might work well if you don’t use a lot of active ingredients on your skin, but for me this didn’t do anything positive. I was pretty bummed because the grapefruit scent is nice!
Overall, this is the first box from Vegan Cuts that I wasn’t mostly happy with. Usually there is one product that I don’t like, but in this case there were only two products I was really happy with! The lip scrub and lip balm were the MVPs of this box. I do plan on trying other products from Emani to get a better feel for the brand.
