If youโ€™re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒปโœจ
Every 3 months, youโ€™ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep ๐Ÿ“ฆ
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
๐ŸŒผ you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s cheaper than buying each product on their own โ€” you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where itโ€™s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.
๐ŸŒผ you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s a seasonal subscription so youโ€™ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
๐ŸŒผ do good while looking good โ€” partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.
๐ŸŒฟ Use #Vegancuts Coupon Code: 'ETHICALELEPHANT' to receive $5 OFF your order.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ
๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

List of Cruelty-Free & Vegan Beauty Box Subscriptions + Coupon Codes (2020)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Vegan Beauty Box Subscriptions are a fun and easy way to discover new products without having to do any work. A vegan box is shipped directly to your doorstep periodically where you’ll receive a thoughtfully curated box full of cruelty-free and vegan goodies just waiting for you to try! It’s that easy.

All that’s left for you to do is finding the right box to subscribe to! When it comes to both vegan and cruelty-free beauty boxes, you want to make sure all the products contained are from beauty brands that don’t test on animals and the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Some boxes that claim to be a “cruelty-free beauty box” may include products that use animal-derived ingredients like carmine, lanolin, beeswax, and honey making them not vegan.

Vegan Beauty Box Subscriptions

The following vegan box subscriptions are all 100% vegan and I highly recommend subscribing to one if you’re new or just switching over to vegan beauty products because this makes the process so much easier and enjoyable!

Finding the right vegan beauty box to subscribe to depends on what you want out of it. They all range in price ($15-40) and contain a variety of different products. I recommend subscribing to just ONE of these vegan beauty boxes as there may be some cross-overs and you might end up getting duplicates.

Vegan Beauty Subscription Boxes

Petit Vour Cruelty-Free & Vegan Beauty Box

Vegan Cuts’ beauty box starts at $22.95 and includes about 4-7 products; 3-4 of which are full or deluxe sample sizes. The average value of a Vegan Cuts beauty box is about $52.

Who’s this for? If you want more products in each month’s box then Vegan Cuts is definitely the one to go with as they contain the most products than any of the other vegan beauty boxes.

    What w0uld you recommend to someone who is deciding between Vegan Cuts and Petit Vour?? I am also very interested in the new Vegan Cuts Makeup box but I really want something monthly.

    • Vicky Ly
      October 25, 2016

      ooOhh great question! This really comes down to personal preference. They’re quite similar but I find that Vegan Cuts definitely has more samples/products than Petit Vour and Vegan Cuts includes more mainstream CF/V brands whereas Petit Vour contains a bunch of products from indie or smaller natural/green brands.

      I love receiving MORE products hehe so I personally enjoy Vegan Cuts more than Petit Vour, for that reason!

      I suggest you checking out the hashtag #vegancutsbeautybox and #petitvour on Instagram or social media to see past boxes… this will help give you a better idea of what’s included inside their previous monthly boxes and hopefully will make your decision a bit easier! =)

    Hey Vicky – I’m really big on all natural/organic/cruelty/free vegan products and I am able to incorporate all natural, organic and humanely sustained products in my food easily and same with bath and body products but it is harder to do with makeup,, I do it as much as I can but there’s not a lot of it readily available in makeup stores such as Sephora so I’m usually confined to just a couple makeup companies that are available online that I know are CF/V with their makeup as well as brushes because some companies may seem all natural/organic/CF/V but I do a lot of digging to ensure they are and a lot don’t make the cut, they just trick people because most probably wouldn’t check and with the couple I knew were legitimate I was confined to those brands so I’d never be able to try different companies and products all at once and for a great price as I could with a box that’s why then I saw this amazing post about beauty boxes – I always wanted to try one but the reason I did not is I did not want to be sent products that were not cruelty free or vegan as I didn’t want to support their business by even receiving samples. I’ve now gone and signed up for a Petit Vour box and it’s all thanks to you! I didn’t see a link as some reviewers have so you can receive your well deserved reward but I did mention this website when it asked how I heard about them!

    • Vicky Ly
      June 23, 2016

      eeep!! what a sweet message to read!! it makes me so happy to know that you found this article helpful! I was the exact same when I started to look into cf, vegan, natural, and organic products.

      Sadly, most of the brands/products that mainstream stores like Sephora or the Drugstore carry are not that natural or even cruelty-free. =( If you have a Whole Foods or a natural health food store in your area.. definitely check our their beauty aisle! There might be some awesome goodies hiding in there!

      But these monthly beauty boxes are definitely another great solution and Petit Vour is a fabulous option for both vegan and green beauty! I really do hope you enjoy the box as much as I did!! And thanks for mentioning ethical elephant with your purchase =) You are too kind, my dear!

    The UK really needs to get with it. We have virtually no options with regards to cruelty free beauty boxes. LaRitzy looks like a lovely subscription box!

    • Vicky Ly
      March 10, 2016

      It’s too bad you guys don’t have any CF beauty boxes! Maybe someone will see this as a business opportunity and take it upon themselves to start one in the UK because that seems like the consensus from what I’ve been hearing; People want them but there just isn’t one available!

  • Vivi M
    March 10, 2016

    Great post!
    I’ve made the comparisons myself and ended up with LaRitzy and I have to say I am SUPER pleased. They were also the kindest on shipping expenses.
    About The Vegan Kind, Kelly from TheVeganTaff actually just wrote the other week about how she’s kind of disappointed with them…haven’t tried it personally though.

    • Vicky Ly
      March 10, 2016

      In comparison to the other boxes, LaRitzy kills it! Best prices, best value, best shipping outside the US, and Iโ€™ve also been pleased with all the products in each monthโ€™s box! Iโ€™m so happy you liked them too Vivi!! Hmmโ€ฆ I wonder if there are any local cruelty-free and vegan beauty boxes in your area? =)

      Yah I noticed that Kelly wasnโ€™t too impressed with TVK boxes. I used her reviews to calculate the average value of the box since Iโ€™ve never received one. Itโ€™s a shame they got poor reviews as they do offer an affordable option to people living in the UK!

      • Vivi M
        March 10, 2016

        Good question!
        They do have a beauty box in Italy but definitely not a cruelty free one . I also saw a review that said it was pretty bad.
        I found one in Sweden that looks organic and good but then LaRitzy starting sending to Europe and I think I’ll be staying with them for a while ๐Ÿ™‚

        About TVK I agree. Plus because it’s a quarterly box I expected it to be super exciting but it seems otherwise. Again, haven’t tried it personally, just the impression I got from reading.

โ€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
