Happy New Year! I’ve got a ton of yummy recipes to share in the coming weeks, but today I thought I’d share my experiences with Vegan Cuts.

- Both the Beauty Box and Snack Box are $19.95 per month. They’re shipped for FREE within the USA (lucky buggers), but it’s an additional $8 to Canada and $15 Internationally.
December 2013 Beauty Box & Snack Boxes
I received my very first Vegan Cuts Beauty Box and Snack Box in December. Here’s a shot of everything that was in them (as you can see a few of the snacks have already been eaten!):
And here’s a video of me unboxing my December Vegan Cuts Snack Box and Beauty Box:
My Thoughts on the Beauty Box
The Beauty Box is supposed to contain 4-7 products, but mine actually contained 10. And since the nail polishes are “big” minis, I would say it’s more like 13 products. Here they are:
- 2 x wipes: La Fresh Eco Beauty Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes
- 1 x 6.6g pot: Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter (Blissed Out)
- 1 x sample: Soapbox Soaps All-Natural Body Wash
- 1 x 1.5g pot: Concrete Minerals Eyeshadow in “Troublemaker” + 20% coupon off next order
- 1 x 5ml sample: Earth Science Fragrance Free Shampoo
- 1 x 5ml sample: Earth Science Fragrance Free Conditioner
- 1 x sample vial: Meow Meow Tweet Body Tonic in “Palmarosa Cedar”
- 1 x 0.14g sample: Everyday Minerals – Finishing Dust
- 1 x 0.14g sample: Everyday Minerals Blush in “Ambrosia”
- 4 x 7.5ml nail polish minis: Color Club Harlem Lights Mini Nail Polish Set
As I mentioned in the video, I think the Beauty Box is a great value. Three of the products alone are worth $29 USD ($7 Concrete Minerals Eyeshadow + $10 Pacifica Lip Butter + $12 Color Club Nail Polish Set), so along with the smaller samples, it’s a good deal for International and Canadian customers and an absolute steal for folks in the USA. I’m going to keep my Beauty Box subscription, and I’ll continue to post unboxing videos and write-ups as long as I maintain the service.
My Thoughts on the Snack Box
Although the Snack Box is supposed to contain 7-10 items, mine actually had 11! Here they are:
- 1 x 42.5g bag: Beanitos Black Bean Chips with Sea Salt
- 1 x 100g bag: Goody Good Stuff Cola Breeze
- 1 x 43g bag: Cocomels Coconut Milk Caramels
- 1 x 31g bag: Homefree Gluten Free Mini Vanilla cookie
- 1 x 18g bar: Pure Organic Strawberry Banana Fruit Sandwiches
- 1 x 180g jar: Viana Wild Herb Sunflower Spread
- 1 x 11g bottle: Mahima for Life – Berries Best Antioxidant Powder
- 4 x tea bags: Revolution Tea Southern Mint Herbal Tea
- 2 x mints: Hint Mint Classic Mints, Chocolate
- 1 x chocolate: Sjaak’s Organic Caramel Dark Chocolate
- 1 x cookie: Michy’s Pumpkin Eater Cookie
I’m not someone who typically buys or eats a lot of store-bought snacks. But I loved discovering Sjakk’s ‘Milk’ Chocolate Caramel Bite, Cocomels’ Coconut Milk Sea Salt Caramels and Goody Good Stuff’s Cola Breeze gummy candies. They’re so good that I plan on adding them to my next Amazon order! However, at almost $35 with the international shipping, I would not be able to justify a monthly Snack Box subscription at this time. Having said that, I think it’s a great value if you’re in the US or Canada. And it would be especially fun for those of you with vegan kids – a cute way of treating them with a handful of health(ier) snacks that they get to unbox each month 🙂
