If you’re a vegan on social media, you’re probably familiar with Vegan Cuts, an online vegan marketplace with deals on vegan products, and subscription services for all kinds of gifts and goodies. One of their newer subscriptions is the Beauty Box, a handpicked selection of
potential new beauty obsessions cruelty-free beauty products delivered to your doorstep each month. To sweeten the deal, the Beauty Box is put together by my talented and gorgeous friend Melisser, Vegan Cuts’ Beauty Box and Marketing Manager, and owner of Cruelty Free Face. I’ve seen Vegan Cuts Beauty Boxes pop up on social media over the past few months, but had yet to check one out for myself, so when Melisser offered to let me try the November Beauty Box, I was stoked! Now that I’ve had a chance to go through the box and check out the products, here are my thoughts.
Vegan Cuts November Beauty Box
1. North Coast Organics ‘Death by Lavender’ Natural Deodorant
If you love lavender (which I do), this coconut oil-based deodorant smells amazing! I use so much coconut oil in the kitchen and for my skin and hair, so I’m pretty excited to try it out. I’ve never actually used a natural deodorant, but now that I own a few, I may try switching it up a few days out of the week to give my skin a break from antiperspirant.
2. Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter in Lava
I’m a big fan of Pacifica, so I was excited to see this lip butter in the Beauty Box. I’ve been using their lotions and perfumes for a few years now, and I recently discovered their makeup line. I love tinted lip balm for everyday wear because it adds subtle color while hydrating chapped lips, especially in the winter. This Pacifica shade is smooth and provides a sheer red color. I’m excited to add it to my collection, and look out for other shades next time I’m in Whole Foods or Target.
3. Earth’s Enrichments Calming Spa Seaweed Soap
Just as the name suggests, the rosemary and peppermint oil in this soap create an herbal, minty fragrance that is absolutely relaxing. The sample size is great for travel, so it’s going in my suitcase soon!
4. Rainbow Honey Nail Lacquer in Persephone
This polish is a lovely shade for winter: a warm pinky red with shimmer and flecks of gold glitter. Each coat goes on sheer, so it will take 2-3 coats to get the intensity pictured on the packaging. I’m painting my toes later today!
5. Medusa’s Makeup Body Shimmer and Kabuki Brush
I use bronzer sparingly, but I have been looking for a replacement for my (no longer cruelty-free) Urban Decay bronzer when it runs out. This product is more glittery than a typical bronzer, so it is probably not an everyday bronzer for me. The warm hue and shimmer would be nice for a night out or special occasion. The kabuki brush is the perfect size for travel (and perfect timing because I needed one!), so I put it in my overnight bag and have been using it with pressed powder as well.
