Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Review: June Box

Hey there, Snuggle Friend’s it’s that time again! Where the eff did the time go? Have you checked out the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box yet? I mean, really, you should. It’s an awesome little gift to yourself or others (sharing is caring!) When you sign up for a subscription, you get a box with an assortment of 4-7 sample and full size vegan beauty products for only $20 bucks a month. I know, totally cool, right? I’ve discovered some really cool stuff through this program and it really helps with finding vegan beauty for reasonable price.


So, Let’s move onto what I got for June.

  1. Superchic Laquer by Wonder Beauty Products- I received this totally awesome, handmade nail lacquer in a pretty, sparkly blue hue named Coming Unblued ( a good summer shade!). This polish drys quick and smoothly, which is always a bonus in my book. This polish is the mega 5 free and has no toxic chemicals. Check out their Etsy store for all of their super cute colors!
  2. Pacifica Natural Eye Pencil- I received this pencil in Fringe, a mocha brown, that goes on super smooth. I usually only buy black liquid eyeliner but I really like how this pencil is very easily applicable. This little pencil is also packed full of nutrients that help protect and nourish your sensitive eye area. And it’s waterproof!! Pacifica is a cool brand that you can order online or find in the Whole Body section at your local Whole Foods.
  3. NYL Velvet Transformative Serum– Need I say more? I do? Ok, I will. This is a fabulous little product that is full of vitamin C, antioxidants, anti-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory properties. Yes, my lovelies, this is a great serum for protecting your face. After I put it on, my skin feels so silky and radiant. NYL is made in a kitchen with amazing vegan, eco-friendly, and organic ingredients. Bottom line is: I really love this pick.
  4. LA Fresh Nail Polish Remover Wipes- These wipes are eco-friendly and one wipe works for 10 nails. Of course, I put these to the sparkly nail polish test, which is the toughest test of all. It did pretty good against the test. The scent is so much better than regular acetone nail polish and your nails feel conditioned afterwards.
  5. Lip Glosserie Moisturizing Lip Balm in Asain Pear- OMG. This is one tasty lip balm. The Lip Glosserie is a small company ran out of a kitchen in Austin, TX and they do an amazing job. This lip balm goes on smooth and gives you just a little shimmer. It looks really perrttty on and it tastes and smells amazing.
  6. Jane Carter Solution Hair Butter- Full of moisturizers, this is a great little product for the summer (especially for those of us desert dwellers!) It gets rid of those frizzes and keeps your locks looking lovely. Just remember, a little bit goes a long way!

That’s it. Now, get your keester on over to and get your beauty box. Seriously. Do it. (Be one of the 1st of 300 to sign up for a new subscription in time for the July box and receive a bonus gift!)

*An added note, lovelies. This is not a sponsored post, I pay for my subscription and give my honest opinion on all products.


Lazy Sunday Funday, 3-30-2014

Hot Topic of The Week: Polar Vortex May Mean Miserable Allergy Season

Got Allergies? With the polar vortex hopefully behind us, allergy experts are predicting that if it warms up fast we will be in for a bad allergy season. Lucky for you, there are a lot of home remedies to beat allergies without taking a Beanfield's vegan chipsbunch of chemicals.

Vegan Product of the Week: Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chip 

I know March has been a snacky type month for us here at the House of Snuggles, so here’s another snack! Beanfield’s Bean and Rice chips are super yummy and have an incredible crunch. They come in a few different fun flavors including Nacho and Sea Salt, with Pico de Gallo being my favorite. Oh and by the way, it’s really easy to eat the whole bag.

Snuggles Belly Rub Rating: 5 out of 5

What’s Cooking in The House of Snuggles This Week:

Breakfast– Homemade Vegan Waffles

  • I love making breakfast on the weekends. Why? It means super fun leftovers and more interesting breakfasts for during the week. Waffles freeze well and can be reheated by toasting, you know, kind of like an Eggo but better. You can do a variety of topping like traditional maple syrup or even try doing peanut butter and jelly!

Lunch- Field of Greens Salad with homemade dressing

  • Greens make a great lunch. Besides that boost on vitamins, the chlorophyll in greens are a great pick me up for a mid-day meal. Try pairing with a chik’n salad sandwich or vegan creamy tomato soup.

Dinner- Baked potato with baked beans and steamed veggies

  • This is an awesome budget friendly dinner. Easy, cheap, and delicious baked potatoes and beans will fill you up and keep you satisfied. Try steamed carrots, broccoli or even asparagus to top it all off.

Snack Time- Almonds

  • Almonds are packed full of protein, as well as, vitamin E, manganese, biotin and copper. A handful really does go a long way and will bring you up from your afternoon slump.

Peaceful Dumpling Contribution of the Week:

Ever wonder about seeing a Naturopath? Here I give  a few pointers on what to expect at your first visit.

What You Should Know About Seeing a Naturopath

And last but not least, I want to leave you with this video. It’s a video from Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary. It is a beautiful video showing 752 factory farm chickens being released from their cages and experiencing the outdoors for the first time. It’s a tear-jerker but a goody.

Missed Last Week’s Roundup? Well, here it is!
