The May Vegan Cuts Vegan Beauty Box is here, and it’s full of cruelty-free products that will help you freshen up for summer!
The Vegan Beauty Box
It’s that time of the month again! It’s time to take a look inside the Vegan Cuts Vegan Beauty Box.
If you’re a regular Chic Vegan reader, you have probably heard of the Vegan Cuts Vegan Beauty Box already, but if you’re new here, you might know about it yet. That’s why I’m here! The Vegan Beauty Box is a subscription service that delivers sample (and sometimes full-sized) cruelty-free cosmetics and skin care products to your door every month. It’s a great way to find new brands and sample products without spending a lot of money. It’s also pretty perfect for newbie vegans who are just learning about cruelty-free brands.
I’ve been receiving the Vegan Cuts Vegan Beauty Box for a few years now, and I always look forward to its arrival. I’m constantly impressed with the selection of products Vegan Cuts curates for their customers. This month’s box was dedicated to freshening up for spring and summer.
The Longhopes Donkey Shelter
The May box supports The Longhopes Donkey Shelter in Colorado. The shelter is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating unwanted Donkeys, as well as finding them new homes.
The May Vegan Cuts Vegan Beauty Box Contained:
Four Sigmatic Superfood Serum – $55 value
This s product is unusual because it can be used as both an oral supplement or a topical skin serum. It’s rare to find a skin care product that’s safe enough to ingest, but shouldn’t everything we put on on skin be harmless? This serum formulated with natural oils and extracts to beautify from the inside out as well as hydrate the skin. It can also help to fight fine lines and redness. When using externally, you simply apply a few drops to the face and neck after cleansing and massage into the skin twice a day. When taking as a supplement, you just take 4 drops a day. I’ve been using it as a topical serum on my face for the past week, and my skin has felt soft and supple.
Deco Miami Nail Art Stickers – $8 value
These stickers make it easy to give yourself a fun manicure! They’re made with a special material that won’t irritate skin. To use them, simply remove a sticker with tweezers, place them it on your nail, and then seal with a clear top coat. I received Sugar & Spice stickers, which includes hearts, letters, cherries, lips, snakes, and flowers.
The Humble Co. Bamboo Toothbrush and Toothpaste – $4 value
One of the problems of traditional toothbrushes is that the plastic they’re made with more often than not ends up in a landfill. And there are around 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes made each year! The Humble Co. has created a solution to that problem – they’ve made their toothbrushes out of bamboo. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet, so the handles on these brushes are sustainably grown. No fertilizers or pesticides are used on them, because bamboo is actually naturally antibacterial. The handles are also 100% biodegradable and can be composted after you’re done with your brush. The bristles are made with nylon-6 and should be recycled rather than composted. Nylon-6 is softer than other types of nylon, so these bristles are more gentle on your teeth than other brushes. The packaging the toothbrush comes in is made primarily from recycled paper, so it’s also eco-friendly. The Humble Co.’s Natural Toothpaste was developed by dentists, and is made without dyes, preservatives, and harsh chemicals. It’ll leave your mouth felling fresh and clean! Every purchase from The Humble Co. goes benefits in need.
Whole Love Organics Deodorant – $9 value
I’m a sweater, so the warm months can be a little tough for me. Natural deodorants don’t always work, but fortunately, this one has kept my underarms dry over the past week. It’s handmade in Illinois with just five simple ingredients: organic virgin coconut oil, organic arrowroot powder, candelilla wax, naturally procured baking soda, and essential oils. I’ve tried other natural deodorants that have a rough texture and are a little harsh on the skin. This one is softer and glides on smoothly. I received the Orange Vanilla scent, which is reminiscent of creamsicles, a scent that reminds me of summer.
The card included in this month’s beauty box mistakingly said that this deodorant is baking soda free, but it’s really made with aluminum-free baking soda. Whole Love Organics does have a baking soda free version on their website. Subscribers who have other questions or are upset about mistake should reach out to Vegan Cuts directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love Organics has a coupon code if you want to try their deodorant. Use code VEGAN20 for 20% off your order at www.wholeloveorganics.com. Offer expires: 8/1/19, cannot be combined with other offers.
The Beauty Box is available as a monthly subscription, which means that once you sign up, a box of new goodies gets delivered to your door every month. Subscriptions choices include monthly, six month, and a year.
