I will admit that when I first heard about the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box I wasn’t very interested. I have extremely sensitive skin, and it’s difficult for me to find products that I don’t have weird reactions to or contain fragrances that trigger nasty headaches. There are so many jars of cream and bottles of lotion stashed away in my bathroom cabinet and I didn’t want to add any more to the collection. But after Vegan Cuts sent me their October box for review, I realized that the Beauty Box was perfect for me! I can try samples of cosmetics and skin care items to see if I like them before buying the full-sized version. If I don’t like a product, it’s not a big deal. Because most of the products are sample-sized, my collection of unwanted beauty products won’t grow. How perfect is that?
I really liked everything in the October Beauty Box, and I didn’t have any weird reactions to any of the products. I liked that everything was natural and I didn’t have to worry about toxic ingredients. (For the record, I sometimes have reactions to natural products too, so I have to be really careful what I put on my skin.) The October Beauty Box contained:
Meow Meow Tweet Body Tonic This goes on the skin after washing and has a light and refreshing feel.
Concrete Minerals Eyeshadow This is actually a full-sized eye shadow – not a sample. It’s shimmery and glamorous and perfect for evenings out and holiday parties.
Bare Bones Cleanser I was skeptical about cleaning my face with a clear, thin, liquid. After the first wash I was instantly hooked though! It left my skin feeling squeaky clean and refreshed. I’m still using my sample and will probably order a full-sized bottle when I’m done.
Lotus Moon Vitamin-B Hydrating Gel from SMB Essentials I have a hard time finding a moisturizer that actually moisturizes my skin without leaving it feeling greasy – especially in winter. This really fit my needs and I loved the way my skin felt after applying it. This is another one I will be ordering a full size of.
Beauty Without Cruelty Aromatherapy Shampoo I loved the fresh scent of this shampoo – it’s perfect for groggy mornings!
The All Natural Face Cream Lip/Cheek Color in Dusky Rose This product can be used both a lip color and blush. I loved the color!
Earth Science Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner These are both gentle and fragrance-free and gave my hair volume and shine.
