By now you’ve all heard me ranting and raving (and making videos) about the Vegan Cuts Snack Box – that delightful treasure chest of vegan and mostly-gluten-free goodies that’s delivered to your doorstep every month. I love it, and Waits really loves it, and basically I’m just a big huge fan of this company, for lots of reasons.
So I was SUPER stoked when they announced a new program, just exactly like the Snack Box, except with makeup. The Beauty Box!
Basically, each month (or just one time, if you don’t want to subscribe) you get a little box filled up with fabulous, 100% vegan, all-natural, totally cruelty-free body care products, delivered to your front door. And just like with the Snack Box, what’s inside is always a surprise – so it feels just like a holiday when you get it! That’s really why I love these things (because who couldn’t use a little more surprise and excitement in their life, amiright?!)
I was so thrilled when I got mine, so of course I made a little “unboxing” video. Here’s a look at what I got in my very first Vegan Cuts Beauty Box (and also oh man, I’m a dork):
As promised, a quick review of everything I got in my box . . .
NYL Rosewater Face Wash. It smells so good! I don’t usually wash my face with anything except water, but this was really nice and didn’t dry out my skin at all. I love that it’s made of mostly organic ingredients, too. Available on VeganCuts.com
Namaste Makeup Pouch. Cute and durable, I took it on a recent trip and it did the trick. But, you know, it’s a makeup pouch . . . not too much variation there. Available on Amazon
Lippy Girl Extra Virgin Lip Gloss. Not something I’d wear every day, but I prefer a more subtle chapstick-style. I’ve used this for date night though, and KAPOW! It’s so shiny and delightful! Tastes great too. Available on VeganCuts.com
GlamNaturals Mascara. Not my favorite mascara. It goes on very dark which is good, but it is not even close to waterproof. After a shower I look like a raccoon, haha. Available on VeganCuts.com
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face SunScreen – Tinted. This was AWESOME. Holy moly, I’ve never used a tinted sunscreen before and this was fantastic! Smoothed out my complexion and protected my skin, all at once. Plus it was featured in the Environmental Working Group’s “best sunscreen” category for its exceptionally awesome ingredients list. I love this stuff! Available on Amazon
Acure Argan Oil. Another huge hit! I had no idea what this was or what it did, but after a bit of research I learned that it can be used to moisturize the hands, face, and hair. I’ve been using it on my face at night and my skin looks so happy! The only weird thing is that it kind of smells like olives? Not olive oil, but like – olives. Haha. Available on Amazon
LVX Nail Laquer. I’ve warmed up to this color, which sort of scared me at first. So bright! But now I smile every time I look down at my toes, because duh – this brightness just screams HAPPY! This stuff needs a few coats before it’s even, but it’s super strong. Also it’s made in the USA which is awesome. Available on VeganCuts.com
Essence Of Vali Essential Oil – Sleep. I’ve had a lot of fun anointing my mattress and pillows with this. Are we sleeping better? I don’t know, but man it makes my bedroom smell great. Available on Amazon
The September Beauty Box has just gone on sale and I can’t wait to see what’s inside! The August box sold out, so if you’re interested, hop to it!
