September Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

SEPT_VEGAN_CUTS_BEAUTY_BOX

 

It’s time for another amazing Vegan Cuts Beauty box, Snuggle friends. This is a really great program that allows you to sample 5-7 vegan, cruelty-free, toxin-free beauty and self-care products for only $20 a month. This is such a great value because many of these boxes have at least 1 full size product mixed in with the samples.  It’s like a little gift you can give yourself monthly.

Without further ado, Here’s your September Vegan Cuts Beauty Box:

  1. Clark’s Botanicals Deluxe Deep Moisture Mask– This stuff is amazing. The smell is incredibly soothing and the way your skin feels after doing a treatment makes you want to rub your face on people to show them how smooth and soft it is. This mask is made from algae, comfrey root, jasmine and green tea.
  2. Only Goodness Inside Deodorant- This is a good deodorant that will keep you stink free all day. They use organic food grade ingredients that are gluten-free, vegan, irritation-free and best of all, stain-free. It goes on like a lotion and dries quickly making it great for peeps on the go.
  3. Lunatick Cosmetic Labs- Oh and I love me some eyeshadow. I mean I’m kind of obsessive with it, especially funky colors. So this was a nice little surprise this month. I received this loose shadow in Dr. Jekyll, which is this amazing bronzy, gold shade with silver sparkles. This is a really awesome shade that can go for both day and nighttime wear. (And I got lots of compliments on it)
  4. Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub- This is a very nice scrub that uses volcanic sand and Dead Sea salt to gently buff away dead skin for amazingly soft and smooth skin. Dead Sea salt and volcanic sand? Sounds tre chic and spa like.
  5. Suncoat Mascara- A natural, sugar based mascara that is excellent for sensitive eyes. Suncoat uses mineral pigments and vitamin E but leaves out the toxins to keep your peepers healthy. This is a nice, thick mascara that glides on smoothly and lasts throughout a long work day.

That about wraps it up. These are some really great products and you should get in on the next box. So go do it. Now. You won’t regret it.

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.

VEGAN CUTS SUBSCRIPTION BEAUTY BOX

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 vegancuts.com 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.

Vegan Cuts May Beauty Box Review

So in an effort to save a little cash, I had cancelled my Beauty Box. I know, the horror. Than I saw the preview video for the May Vegan Cuts Beauty Box and I was like, “Dumb.” So, obviously, I re-signed up for it. And you should too. It’s such a great way to try vegan, organic, cruelty-free beauty products for 20 smackaroos a month.

May’s box was the most valuable yet with 3 full size products all worth a pretty penny. So let’s get to it.

  1. Skin Again Vanish– So this was a super exciting product to try. This is actually what clinched me re-signing up for my box. Turning 30 is hard and after rocking out hard in my 20s my body could use some TLC, especially my skin. Skin Again was born after the CEO, Sherrie, was severely burned in an accident. She began using a lotion that was gifted to her that totally saved her skin from scarring. She was inspired by this experience and used her knowledge of holistic elements to create these beautiful lotions for healing and damage prevention. I received a full size sample of Vanish, which helps diminish scars, cellulite, and stretch marks. Let me tell you, this shit works. Knowing the science behind cellulite, I was really skeptical but I have noticed a big difference in how my thighs look now. (Sorry, no before and after pictures. Nobody gets to see those.) So, if you are looking for a healing lotion like this it is worth every penny.
  2. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lash Strengthening Mascara– I was hoping to receive a mascara in one of the Beauty Boxes at some point. Lauren Brooke Cometiques uses natural and certified organic ingredients in all of their products. This mascara is a blend of vitamins, herbs, and extracts that help stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss.  This is a good mascara, there’s no flaky, runny stuff that you can sometimes get with mascara. It goes on clean and comes off easily. I was using Gabriel Cosmetics Mascara but I will be purchasing this as a replacement.
  3. Gourmet Body Treats Raw Finishing Powder– This was another full size goodie. Gourmet Body Treats is a company that was created because the owner has a skin condition that prevented her from using many beauty products. Gourmet Body Treats uses vegan, organic, and eco-friendly sourced ingredients to make their awesome products. And they have super cute packaging too! This finishing powder is awesome. It definitely helps keep my face from getting shiny and oily in the desert summer heat. This is a sheer powder that is great for all skin types and should be incorporated as the last step in your make-up routine.
  4. Tallulah Jane Halona Perfume– In general I am not a fan of perfume, I’m more of an essential body oil kinda of girl. I am also more of a fan of light floral scents over anything else but I gave this a fair try. This is a light scent that is great for summer and is a good scent for anyone who likes a strong citrus scent with spicy notes.
  5. Sevi Blue Yarrow Salt Salt Texturing Spray I am a huge fan of the boho type look and Sea Salt Spray is a staple for my hair. So when I saw this little gem, I did jig of glee. This is a good texturing spray that gives you light body and defined curls without getting your hair all crunchy. The best part about this is you just spray, run your fingers through your hair and run. Low maintenance is totally my style!
  6. Goddess Garden Organics SPF 30 Sunny Body Sunscreen– A natural sunscreen that protects your skin from damaging broad spectrum UVA/UVB rays. It’s very light weight and moisturizing, so it goes well on your face. (They do make separate facial sunscreen.) This sunscreen is all natural, vegan, non-gmo and is package in recyclable containers. I try not to spend too much time out in the sun, especially in the summertime (the desert is effing hoTT!!!!!!) but I did use it for a day out and it didn’t leave me greasy or have that strong sunscreen smell which is a huge bonus in my book.
  7. Gabriel Lip Gloss Treatment 8 in Champagne– I have been using Gabriel for a while now mainly because this is something I can pick up at Whole Foods. This is a nice gloss that’s not too goopy and conditions and moisturizes your puckers. As far as lip products go, I usually just use chapstick but I will bust out the occasional gloss when I’m feeling sassy. This is an unusual color for me, so it is taking some getting use to, but it reminds me of something totally retro. And I love retro, so I’ll keep giving it a try.

That’s it folks. I hope you’ll give the Beauty Box and some of these amazing products a try!
