Back in 2015 when I decided to invest in a beauty subscription box I had so many options open to me. Seriously, if you haven’t noticed there are TONS of these suckers now. A few months prior to signing up my subscription box I’d taken part in an influencer promotion. Receiving a box full of health & skincare goodies, and on opening realizing that I couldn’t use 2/3 of them as they weren’t vegan or cruelty free. I needed something in the vegan niche. All the products in the subscription box needed to be 100% cruelty free. Thankfully I found Vegan Cuts!

What is Vegan Cuts?
Vegan Cuts is a subscription box service, and vegan online store. They offer a , monthly beauty box, a quarterly makeup box, and the occasional special edition box. All products in the boxes are 100% Vegan. That means they contain no animal products, are 100% cruelty free. Rather than just shove products in boxes they try every product, and support cruelty free companies. Plus the subscription boxes are themed in a certain way, showing thought and care is put every monthly box.
Monthly beauty subscription box?
Vegan Cuts beauty subscription box is honestly the easiest way for me to get cruelty-free beauty and skincare products without spending tons of moolah! Every month a box arrives at my door containing 4-7 new products. Each product is vegan, 100% cruelty free, contains no parabens and is mostly organic/natural. A typical boxes retail value is $40-$60 though I’ve had some close to $80! Each box contains full size and deluxe sample size products. There are NO single use sachets!!! With free shipping to the U.S, and prices as low as $18.50 a month I give them two thumbs up!
January’s Beauty Box
Sometimes when my subscription box arrives I whip it open and dive in immediately. Other month’s end up being like a slow simmer, where I peruse at a leisurely pace. January was the latter. I kept meaning to do an unboxing video, and just never seemed to get time. So I just decided that it was time to share what was in the box here on the blog and put ‘video unboxing’ onto February’s to-do list. In the January box there were SIX products. Inside the box was a lip & cheek balm, bath bomb, exfoliant mask, deodorant, eye cream and hair conditioner. Total value of this box is $66.48 which is freaking amazing! Let’s dive in and see what we got.
Jersey Shore Cosmetics – Lip & Cheek Balm (Red Hibiscus)
One reason I love getting a subscription box is that it introduces me to new brands and this one was a new one for me. It’s also one I’ll be looking forward to trying more of their products. This lip & cheek balm is pigmented with minerals and flowers. The boxes are split so you either get Red hibiscus or Baccara Rose. Mine contained the Red Hibiscus and I love it! This is a great hint of color for the cheeks and lips for daytime makeup. Full size product. Retail Value = $30
Enfusia – Fizz & Foam Bath Bomb (muscle bomb)
Remember when I said that the boxes were kinda themed? This box is “try something new”. Well along with a few new brands I guess they knew I’d been trying some new things in the gym and needed something to relax my muscles as this muscle bath bomb certainly checks that box. This bath bomb is infused with muscle-soothing epsom salts and reinvigorating essential oils. Deluxe sample product. Retail Value = $1.50
Clarisea – Charcoal Exfoliating Mask
Thanks to Vegan Cuts I’ve tried a few charcoal products (including toothpaste which was actually really good!), so I love this activated charcoal face mask. I have tried another charcoal mask which is totally black and looks kinda weird on. This one one by Clarisea is a silvery grey. It supposed to clear up skin and unclog pores which I am totally on board with both of those things. Deluxe sample size. Retail value $5
Stinkbug Naturals – Cream Deodorant (Tangerine Spice)
Back in my first Vegan Cuts subscription Box I’d gotten a sample of another cream deodorant and initially thought “wth? people use this in jars?”. Now I wouldn’t have it any other way. Seriously these are so good. Stinkbug Naturals do have this a stick deodorant but I like the jars now. Weird how things change with time. This has tangerine and clove combined with shea butter and coconut oil. Deluxe Sample size. Retail value = $2.99
Goddess Garden – Firming Eye Cream
Two skincare products I can never get too many of are Eye Creams and face serums. My skin is much drier now I’m older. I used to have oily skin, now it tends to be more dry. Especially in winter. So I was super happy to see an eye cream in this month’s box. I’d be happy with an eye cream every box, lol. This firming eye cream by Goddess Garden utilizes black elder to reduce puffiness and a variety of vitamins to nourish skin. I loved that it’s in a pump bottle because I tend to get a little heavy handed with these suckers. This is a full size product. Retail value = $17.99
If eye cream and skin serums are my favorite skincare to get, then favorite haircare has to be conditioners. Seriously what happens to hair as you age? What was once soft as silk hair, is quickly becoming coarse as straw! Thankfully I’ve been getting some conditioners to try in the Vegan Cuts beauty boxes and so far my favorite has been the DermOrganic Intensive Hair Repair Masque. Seriously that is SO good! I’ve literally just ran out of the DermOrganic so I’ll be switching to the Briogeo leave-in conditioner this weekend. It’s a spray conditioner that hydrates without weighing the hair down. Deluxe sample size. Retail Value = $9
All in all I am super happy with this month’s box. As I mentioned, I’ve included links to some of the products on Vegan Cuts and Amazon. Many of these products are items you can add to your Amazon Dash buttons. Anyone else love Amazon? Seriously, Amazon Prime is the best thing ever! Oh and subscribe’n’save is amazing too. As much as I love Amazon though, Vegan Cuts beauty Subscription box is something I’ve committed to not just for the cruelty free products, but to introduce me to new brands, new products and to push me to try new things.

If you haven’t tried Vegan Cuts subscription boxes I’d definitely check them out. I’ve been a member for 18 months and love their boxes. Plus their customer service rocks. Hopefully for February’s box I’ll be able to do a video unboxing, keep your fingers crossed for me!
