When you subscribe to a beauty box every month feels a little like it’s your birthday or Christmas. Each month it’s a little surprise showing up at your door. I’ve been subscribing to Vegan Cuts Beauty Box for almost 18 months. Not only do I get to take care of myself and my skin, while look fabulous but, I also get to support companies that promote cruelty free beauty and skincare. To help people make a decision on subscribing I decided to do unboxing posts on my blog and my youtube channel, because I know it helped me making the decision to subscribe, you’re welcome!

So if you’re not familiar with Vegan Cuts they have a subscription service (and online store) where you sign up, and each month you get surprise goodies delivered to your house. They have a monthly beauty box and snack box, plus a new quarterly make-up box. Their subscription rates are as low as $18:50 a month and include free shipping in the U.S. Each beauty box contains 4-7 products of full and deluxe sample size products. All products are cruelty free, most are organic and natural, and contain no parabens. Each box typically runs around $40-$60 in value, so trust me you get more than your money’s worth! So let’s get into the October box unboxing.
Unboxing the October Beauty Box
The October box products total $78.69!!! Whoa Nelly… I’ve done other unboxing posts on my blog and done some YouTube videos (the October unboxing video can be viewed on YouTube now) but I really only promote products I use and I am honest if I don’t like a product. I will tell you that in the 18 months of getting the Vegan Cuts beauty box there have only been three products I’ve been kinda “meh” about. All the rest were 100% HITS! So product #1 in this month’s unboxing…
PRODUCT #1 – CLAY MASK
This October box packs a punch and the first product alone is a big hitter with a full size product worth $64! Yep that’s the price of THREE months subscription right there. This is a rejuvenating clay mask by Palmetto Derma. I’ve said in a previous video that I LOVE clay masks. Seriously they just feel amazing. The clay masks pull out impurities while adding antioxidants and hydration. As I’m almost out of my Valentia Clay Mask (also awesome btw!) I was eager to try this one and it’s SOOO GOOD! Smells amazing, and love that tingly feeling the clay masks give you. This Palmetto Derma mask is a definite HIT for me. One other thing Two thumbs up and we’re only on the first product.
PRODUCT #2 – LIP GLOSS
Up next is a Vegan Lip Gloss by The All Natural Face. This is in “frosted berries” shade, which is a mauve-tinted lip gloss with a frosted undertone that adds a glossy shimmer. I have to say that before I subscribed to the Vegan Cuts beauty box I wasn’t a fan of lip glosses but over the months I’ve grown to love them, more than lipsticks now honestly. The lip glosses have never dried my lips out, and provide color, shine and FUN. This color is perfect for the daytime and just what my makeup bag was missing since switching to cruelty free. This has a $4.60 value making them super cheap to change to fun colors for every season or occasion!
PRODUCT #3 – Soap
The third product in this month’s unboxing is a handmade soap by Revive Bath & Body. Two hits and then a “meh” from me. It might just be me, but I don’t do well with soaps. While I feel squeaky clean, they totally dry my skin out. Especially more so now that I’m getting older. This one is vegetable based so gentle on skin and I’m willing to give it a go, so I’m packing it for our Hawaii trip next month. Gotta say I do love the marbling of the colors and it does smell wonderful. This is a sample size with a $2.50 value.
PRODUCT #4 – BODY MOISTURIZER
Product number four in this box is a body moisturizer by Juice Beauty. This body cream contains extracts from green apples, grapes, lemon, aloe, jojobam shea, and borage seed to hydrate, brighten, smooth and nourish the skin. I’ve tried this and it smells delicious, as well as soaks right into my skin. This re-hydration is needed more during the season change for me so the timing is perfect! One thing I love about these boxes is I get to try brands I hadn’t heard of before and Juice Beauty is a new one to me and one I’ll be purchasing more from in future. This is a sample size, perfect for our Hawaii trip or gym bag, and has a $5 value.
PRODUCT #5 – SHAMPOO
Final product in this month’s beauty box unboxing is a Peppermint and Tea Tree Shampoo by Eden Bodyworks. I could smell this before I opened the box, so minty. The combination of peppermint and tea tree works really well, and no parabens is always a plus! I’ve used the Tea Tree Shampoo from Trader Joes and they give a little tingle to stimulate the scalp and this sample size is gonna be perfect for the gym bag! Again the smell though is just AMAZING, if you use this in the morning in your shower you won’t need coffee to wake you up again. This sample has a $2.50 value.
So all in all October’s Vegan Cuts beauty box was a big hit with me. I found a couple of new brands to try, an everyday lip gloss staple and a clay mask that will last me for many weeks/months to come. At just $20 this box is packed every month with cruelty free, natural, and mostly organic products so I know I’m doing my bit to help the animals and environment and looking good in the process. If you curious about the beauty box I’d definitely recommend the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box, their customer service is excellent and you can cancel your monthly subscription at any time.
Plus they now offer gift subscriptions so if you know someone that would appreciate a little cruelty free beauty on their doorstep every month then what a great gift idea! Especially as the holidays are just around the corner!
What product in this month’s box would you be most excited about?
Have you used a monthly box subscription?
Are you a soap lover, or prefer body wash like me?
I’ve never heard of this monthly box but it’s amazing! I’m always so worried about my beauty products being cruelty-free and good for my skin and all of these other things, and this box sounds like it’s exactly what I need!
Cruelty free and eco-friendly plus good for your skin! So many chemicals and nasty stuff in todays products! if you wouldn’t eat it why is it on your skin?
I have never subscribed to a beauty box before but this looks like a great way to try new products. I would love to try that clay mask.
The clay mask was my favorite!
I love subscription boxes, especially ones filled with beauty products. I bet that shampoo smells amazing!
It was amazing!!! Such a wake up call in the morning!
I have heard nothing but good about Vegan Cuts, but I haven’t had a chance to check them yet. I love that their boxes contain full-sized products, though!
Yes they do! I’ve never not had at least one full size product.
Wow! The Beauty Box looks amazing…I would love to try everything in it! I am going to look into getting one now!
awesome, they are definitely worth it
It is great when the products are vegan! I love knowing products didn’t hurt any living things before getting to me. 🙂
Me too Taylor!

I would want to try that clay mask, it’s been I don’t know how long since I last did a mask but I seem to remember my dorm suitemates in the room. 🙂
Hehehehe, I started using one again last year and now it seems everything has clay in again! What’s old is new…
Ooooo looks like you got one fabulous box this month!!!!! That clay mask looks pretty seeet. I need that for myself.
Yes! I’ve had a couple of boxes that were bulging at the seams when they arrived!
This looks like a box well worth getting! The soap and lip gloss sound especially nice, especially for winter.
The lip gloss has been great!!!
What a fun product! I love vegan beauty products especially all natural ones! This box seems like a great value as well!
such good value!
I would probably like the moisturizer the most. I love the feeling of smooth, clean skin that comes from using a moisturizer. Plus, my skin is really dry, so this would really help.
My skin is dry too Dawn, plus the cooler weather doesn’t help!
I love trying subscription boxes. I can’t believe I didn’t know about the Vegan beauty box, it sounds great. I think I will try it out 🙂 thanks for sharing!
Definitely check it out 🙂
Oh I love tea tree oil! I use it in most of my homemade cleaners and laundry soap. This looks like a fun box, and I don’t think I have heard of it before!
Yes I have tea tree oil at home for any colds etc. Always help unplug a stuffy nose 🙂

I love the clay mask and soap! I’m wondering what the scent is on that? This is a great box
Everything smells so good when it’s full of natural products. Good enough to eat… but I won’t 😉
I love using Vegan skin care products. Just feels like a healthier choice to me.
It really is!
That shampoo is calling my name! I love those two scents. I have to try to find it!
Yes! It’s SO good!
I tend to prefer body wash. I feel like it goes on my skin easier. I haven’t used a monthly subscription service, but I have tried out a couple. They always pack so much in for a good price!
My too! I just think it’s kinder to the skin. But I’m willing to try the soap out as it is natural
Everything in the box looks amazing. I haven’t heard of the Vegan Beauty Box until now. I will check this out.
Definitely worth checking out if you like natural products
Wow, I love that they offer so many boxes! I have never heard of Vegan Cuts, but will have to check them out!
There are so many boxes now huh? Love that this one is cruelty free though!
Beauty in a box, that is so cool! It would be so much fun to try different products every month.
That’s the reason I signed up! Get myself out my box (pun intended)
I love subscription boxes! These one looks great and full of goodies. I need to get on this trend.
Yes, each box has 4-7 goodies!
I love a good clay mask! This is a unique box subscription and would make a great gift!!
It really would, especially for a vegan or eco-friendly friend
That vegan and cruelty free lipgloss looks amazing! I have a bunch of lipglosses and LOVE them all…so this would be a good one to add to my collection. What a fun monthly subscription box! It is like a special day when those arrive at your house!! So fun!
It really is fun, feels like a birthday every month!
