Vegan Cuts: January Box



For almost a year, I've been going back and forth on whether I wanted to subscribe to one of the many popular monthly delivery services. I thought about Barkbox but since Piri can't eat a lot of treats with his kidney disease we opted not to subscribe, although the boxes do include lots of toys and gifts as well. Of course there was Nerd Block, which piqued my interest through the awesome unboxing videos that Mariko did over at Gamerwife. And we are also very interested in Try the World too. 

But first, I gave Vegan Cuts a go. I am always looking to get to know more vegan beauty products and have always relied on Leaping Bunny. Getting a curated box for $19.95 per month seemed like a great deal and so I signed up initially for the three month service {$59 - one time charge}. 

From their website, the boxes in brief: 
  • include 4-7 products that are 100% cruelty-free
  • are mostly organic and natural
  • a mix of full and sample size products
  • and is free shipping to the US 

I received the January box over the weekend and it included some really great things I have been wanting to have and wanting to try: 

+ Crazy Rumos HibisKiss Lip Color in Coral: I don't normally wear colored lip balms or tints and usually have struck out with them. I do like the coral color {and I did like it on me as well} and the smell is pleasant as well. I just don't know if I will always reach out for it to wear. We'll have to see! 

 + Bellapierre Cosmetics Nail Polish in Fire Red: I love painting my nails and I tend to stick to orangey colors. But just as I did with getting  getting more bold with red lipstick, I have been wanting to do the same with my nails. So low and behold, when I got this nail polish in fire red I couldn't be happier.

 + Modern Minerals Shimmer Eyeshadow in Rose: I don't normally wear eyeshadow so I am not sure if I will use this. But I do like that it is shimmer and that it isn't so much of a stand out color. Perhaps I will try and experiment. 

 + elloVi Body Butter {sample size}: I put this on my hands and all around my cuticles yesterday and I am already loving this stuff. I thought it would go on a little greasy, but no. My hands felt great and so did my poor battered cuticles. This is definitely going to be a winter lifesaver for me. 

 + DermOrganic Intensive Hair Repair Masque and Daily Conditioning Shampoo: I can't wait to try out the hair repair masque. If you remember back on this post, I have a thing with my hair and am currently finding ways to make it healthy again. I'm curious how effective it will be. 

 + Gourmet body Treats Sugar & Spice Scrub: I haven't made my usual lemon and honey scrub, which I used for both my face and body, in a while and so this will be a welcome substitute for the time being. The sugar and coffee mix smells amazing. 


I'm definitely pleasantly surprised at the items I got this month and am already anxious to receive my February box.

  5. This service sounds rad and totally up my alley. I think the international shipping, which to be fair is only $15 will probably be my deterring factor though. Thanks for your hair tips by the way, I looked into lush and found they do a de-grease shampoo bar, I have my first wash today and my hair feels so lovely so fingers crossed!

  7. I think you picked the best box to subscribe too! I don't know many vegan brands either, so I learned a lot from this post. That body butter sounds dreamy! Glad it was a good box!
