- Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Mascara
I like the brush shape of this mascara – it’s relatively thin, which let me get close to the last line without blinking. However, by evening time, I noticed that I unfortunately had pretty bad raccoon eyes (in all fairness, I was outside in spring heat for much of the day). I am (slightly nervously) trying it again today, as I anticipate I’ll be inside much of the day, to see if it wears better.
- Gourmet Body Treats Raw Finishing Powder
An “oil-absorbing, line minimizing” powder designed to be worn lightly over mineral foundation. I’ve not had a chance to test this thoroughly, but I’ll do a separate review on it in the future.
- Tallulah Jane Eau de Parfum in Halona
A relatively strong, spicy sweet scent that’s main notes consist of citrus and ginger.
- Skinagain Vanish Cream
Another product I’ll feature in a separate review. While it claims to diminish signs of aging, I typically don’t put much stock in those sort of claims. But the ingredients list does feature a number of skin-beneficial ingredients and it applies nicely.
- Sevi Sea Salt Hair Texturizer
Personally, my hair has plenty of texture already, so this isn’t a product type I’d usually purchase. I did try it and I’m not sure I saw much difference, but again, my hair likely isn’t the ideal texture for testing. If you have fine or thin hair and want beachy waves, this may be one to check out.
- Goddess Garden Organics Sunscreen
Based on the single use I got from the tiny packet, this seems like a solid vegan sunscreen. It’s wonderfully moisturizing, with aloe vera, shea butter, and coconut oil receiving top billing on the ingredients list.
Surprisingly, I hadn’t heard of a single one of the brands included. Depending on your personal preferences, that may be a positive or negative thing. Personally, I think it’s nice to get a mix of brands you already know you like and a few new brands mixed in.
Compared to many of the other Vegan Cuts boxes I’ve seen, this one wasn’t my favorite selection of products. BUT that’s part of the deal with beauty boxes, isn’t it? Sometimes you’ll luck out, sometimes it’ll be more of a “meh” experience.
I still love Vegan Cuts and think it’s an incredible option, not only for vegans but ANYONE who wants to live a more animal-friendly life. For just under $20 a month, you can have the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box delivered to you monthly. Vegan Cuts ships internationally – $8 shipping for Canadians, $15 worldwide. If you enjoy beauty subscription boxes, I think it’s worth a try. Personally, I’m currently eyeing their snack box, which is the same idea as the beauty box but filled with vegan treats.
