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.

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?

Please read till the end...

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.
.
โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ
.
โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
.
โœง Buying produce (like leafy greens ๐Ÿฅฌ) without a bag is another story... Iโ€™d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Poolside Glamour with Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box

This post may contain affiliate links.

Vegan Cuts’ Summer Makeup Box is comin in HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ with the best and thoughtfully curated selection of cruelty-free and vegan makeup products to use this Summer!

The theme for Vegan Cuts’ Summer Makeup Box is Poolside Glamour. The box contains 4 full-size vegan makeup products + a set of vegan nail stickers.

You can still get your hands on the Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box as they’re still available to purchase and they ship every Tues/Thurs.

If you’re not familiar with Vegan Cuts’ Makeup Box, this is their quarterly subscription box. Unlike their Beauty Box, which is a monthly subscription, Vegan Cuts’ Makeup Box is available every 3 months and only includes makeup products, no skin or hair care products. You get 4-5 full-size (not sample sizes) of 100% vegan makeup products that have not been tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box

The makeup box is perfect for someone who is new to cruelty-free and vegan makeup or for someone who loves makeup in general. They also make for some thoughtful and fun gifts year-round!

You can purchase one box for US$39.95 or subscribe annually to get 4 boxes per year for US$37.45/box, which is a total savings of $10. If you change your mind, you can cancel your renewal at any time. Vegan Cuts also ships to Canada and Internationally!

OK, let’s now get into what was included inside the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box!

Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box

IBY Beauty – Poolside Eyeshadow Palette

IBY Beauty – Poolside Eyeshadow Palette ($20)

I get so excited when a beauty box includes an eyeshadow palette, especially one as large as this 12-shade palette! I think this eyeshadow palette is the inspiration behind the Poolside Glamour theme of the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, as it’s appropriately named Poolside. I like how this palette is free of talc and mineral oil and includes a bunch of fun shimmer colors. Most of the shades were very pigmented and easy to blend, the only color I had an issue with was Sunny Skies, it was a bit powdery in the pan. Other than that, these are fun colors to play and wear in the Summertime!

Bali Balm – Vegan Lip Balm

Bali Balm – Grapefruit & Bergamot Lip Balm ($26)

Bali Balm is a brand I’ve never heard of before which is why I love Vegan Cuts Makeup Boxes, they have introduced me to so many new-to-me cruelty-free brands! First, the packaging of this vegan lip balm is so luxurious. The box is so next level for a lip balm that I’m definitely going to keep and reuse it! Finding a good vegan lip balm is such a challenge because most balms contain beeswax, but not this one from Bali Balm. It’s made with 100% natural ingredients and it’s amazing! It’s nourishing keeping my lips feeling moisturized and it doesn’t have that waxy feel to it like other balms I’ve tried. I would definitely like to try some more of Bali Balm’s other lip balm flavors in the future!

Manna Kadar – Diamond Dust Vegan Roll-On Highlighter in Pixie

Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Diamond Dust Roll-on Eyeshadow in Pixie ($19)

I’m totally for multi-use cosmetics and this diamond dust roll-on is great to use as an eyeshadow, highlighter, or lip topper! It’s pigmented and easily blendable. The roll-on applicator makes it super easy to apply. It’s also compact, perfect for travelling with you.

100% Pure – Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Vegan Lipstick

100% Pure – Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick ($30)

I love it when a beauty/makeup box includes something from 100% Pure! I love this cruelty-free and vegan-friendly brand but some of their products are a bit pricey which is why I love it when I get to try some of their products in a makeup box like Vegan Cuts. I received their vegan lipstick in the shade Plume Pink, a nude pink mauve. You can pick from 6 of their gorgeous lipstick shades when you subscribe to the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, which is awesome that you get to customize your order.

Deco Miami – Nail Art Stickers

Deco Miami – Nail Art Stickers ($8)

These are really cute nail stickers! The metallic ones are really cool. These nail stickers are perfect for someone like me who sucks at doing nail art but still want some fun designs on their nails without the hassle. I appreciate how Vegan Cuts includes items like these $8 nail stickers that I wouldn’t have tried on my own if it weren’t for their subscription box!

My Thoughts

After trying out all of the vegan makeup products in the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, I’m seriously impressed and will say that this is probably one of my favorite beauty boxes I’ve ever received! I loved all the makeup products and I’m so happy I got to discover from new cruelty-free brands and try new things that I wouldn’t have typically bought on my own like the fun nail stickers if they weren’t included in the season’s Vegan Cuts Makeup Box!

The total value of products in this season’s box is $103!

You can purchase or subscribe to Vegan Cuts Makeup Box on their website.
