Today's review is a little different, since it's not on any product in particular, but rather a continuation on a blog I posted around the holidays. I highlighted some gift ideas for the natural-lover in your life, and the first idea I mentioned was the gift of a natural subscription box
. One of the boxes I mentioned was Vegan Cuts
What I love about subscription boxes is that it allows you to find new brands, try new products and experiment without much risk. With Vegan Cuts,
for the most part, products will fall into categories of natural, sometimes organic and always Vegan. While some products in the box are full size, others are samplers, so you can make a decision with a couple of uses about whether you would want to use it again. Sometimes finding out what you don't like is as great as finding products you do like. I go through tonnes of products
I'm dissatisfied with before anything reaches my blog.
If you're a product junkie, a subscription box can actually save you money!
Vegan Cuts Beauty Box
has two boxes: a food box, filled with yummy vegan snacks and a beauty box, filled with vegan beauty goodies. They also has a marketplace
, where you can purchase full-sized vegan goodies from their boxes as well as vegan-friendly fashion accessories. In this post, I"ll explore their beauty box.
*I will note, that as a natural product advocate, I still read ingredients carefully, since vegan doesn't necessarily mean natural. That being said, for the most part, the products were pretty pure.
Some highlights in this box included the full-size Dew Puff
- a konjac sponge, which I've raved about in a previous post
- this one was bamboo & charcoal. It would have been a great addition to my natural acne fighting products
last week, as activated charcoal helps fight the impurities that cause breakouts. I'm also in the midst of trying the Primal Pit Paste deodorant that came in this month's box - results pending :)
My favourite item in this month's box was the Aubrey Organics NuStyle Detangler & Shine Booster
for hair. What I loved about this product was that it made my hair shiny, without any weight. Some oils can weigh down the hair, making it look greasy, but this product kept my hair feeling light, clean and looking glossy. It uses quinoa protein and evening primrose oil to smooth things down, but smells citrusy because of the eucalyptus, lemon peel and lime oils. So fresh!
So with that said, why not give yourself a monthly gift. The subscription is $19.95 / month including domestic shipping.
It's always a little exciting getting that package in the mail full of surprises...even as a natural beauty blogger ;)
Sending you lots of light and love this beautiful Saturday.
