some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.
How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

2๏ธโƒฃ In 2017, Lโ€™Orealโ€™s EverPure Shampoo and Conditioners were spotted with a โ€˜100% Veganโ€™ stamp on the packaging. Lโ€™Oreal claims these products are โ€˜veganโ€™ in which they donโ€™t contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, but Lโ€™Oreal is definitely not a cruelty-free brand. Lโ€™Oreal does test on animals when required by law.
๐Ÿ” Look for products that are both cruelty-free ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ vegan to ensure the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ it doesn't contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Which Cruelty-Free & Vegan Beauty Subscription Box to Subscribe to?

This post may contain affiliate links.
Don't know which vegan beauty box to subscribe to?

Subscription boxes are a fabulous way to discover new products without having to do any work. The boxes are shipped directly to your doorstep periodically (usually once a month) where you’ll receive a thoughtfully curated box full of 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 cruelty-free and vegan beauty boxes, there are 5 that are worth trying! Other boxes claim to contain beauty products that are not tested on animals however some products may contain animal derived ingredients like carmine, lanolin, beeswax, and honey making them not vegan.

Vegan Beauty Subscription Boxes

These 5 beauty subscription boxes 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 prices ($15-40) and carry 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.

5 Vegan Beauty Subscription Boxes

Petit Vour is the most affordable monthly subscription box out of the group starting at $15. You’ll receive 4-5 vegan luxury beauty products; 2 of which are full size, making the average value of a Petit Vour box $45-60. Petit Vour is perfect for someone who is looking for green, natural, eco, and luxurious vegan beauty products. This box is more about the quality of each product than the number of goodies included.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

  • Ships to: US (Free), Canada ($9), International ($15)

Not to be confused with Vegan Cuts’ other subscription and specialty boxes, they have one exclusively for 100% vegan beauty products shipped to your doorstep every month. Vegan Cuts’ beauty box starts at $22.95 and includes about 4-7 products; 3-4 of which are full size or deluxe sample sizes. The average value of a Vegan Cuts beauty box is about $52.

If you want more products in each month’s box then Vegan Cuts is definitely the one to go with as they contain more number of samples than any of the other boxes. Also, brands included in a Vegan Cuts beauty box are more affordable and accessible (some of which you can get at your local drugstore) so if you end up loving something you tried from their box, there’s a chance you can find it in-stores locally.

Medusa’s Makeup is an indie brand so if you like to support a small cruelty-free makeup brand and either want to try out some of their products but don’t know where to start or you’re already a fan of Medusa’s Makeup products, then this beauty box is for you! If you like to experiment and try colorful and bold makeup, I think you would definitely get a kick out of subscribing to this box.

    Great point Vicky, these boxes are an excellent and affordable way to discover new brands and products, without having to do heaps of work. They make excellent gifts too – a great way to introduce friends and family to the world of cruelty-free beauty! Excellent post ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!

      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.
