Beauty Box

Vegancuts Beauty Box | September 2021 - Items

This box contains the following:

  • Bali Balm – Lip Balm Bergamot & Grapefruit or Lemon & Black Pepper $33“These luxury balms feature exceptionally unique flavors and are formulated with sustainable ingredients. Non-sticky and perfect for daily use or under lipstick. In cold weather, massage the tube between your fingers to soften the balm for easier flow.”
    • A lip balm that doesn’t irritate my lips? It actually does destroy my lips, as does everything else I’ve used. I’ve literally tried everything to combat dry lips in the winter, but everything I use makes it worse. So, I stopped using everything and my lips improved. Do I need this? It makes my lips worse, so no. Love the scent of the Bergamot & Grapefruit! Not worth the price, but still good.
  • Balade En Provence – Solid Day Cream $27“Hand made in France with premium ethically sourced ingredients with 100% compostable and recyclable packaging. Protect and regenerate your skin while respecting the environment. Glide over face, allowing the warmth of your skin to melt the bar or blow onto bar to aid in melting. Use fingers to gently massage the product into your skin until fully absorbed.”
    • This is mostly cacao butter that melts on your face with your body heat. With any sort of body butter, a little is all that’s needed. So, I slid it over my face, let it melt slightly, and rubbed it in. It lasts awhile and leaves the skin feeling smooth for hours. Don’t get it on your lips since it causes major issues, at least for me since my lips are super sensitive.
  • 21 Drops – De-Stress Roll On $16“Anit-oxident rich and featuring key essential oils like Frankincense for quieting the mind and Ylang Ylang to soothe nerves. This organic therapeutic roller is perfect to complete your full facial experience or keep in your bag for daily use or before you go to bed. Apply as needed in circular motion to temples, wrists, collarbone or front of neck. Inhale and relax.”
    • The scent is amazing. So relaxing and soothing. Simply roll it on your arm (or anywhere else) and smell the amazing essential oils. It’s so nice, I’m going to do it now!
  • Earth Kiss – Kombucha & Turmeric Clay Mask $2.99“Turmeric and Kombucha work in harmony drawing out toxins from pores while safeguarding against free radical damage that can contribute to acne flare-ups. Apply evenly to clean skin, relax for 10-15min. Rinse with warm water and gently pat dry.”
    • I was thinking this was going to be orange, but it’s actually white. Thus, it doesn’t stain the face orange. It’s a nice face mask and leaves the face feeling smooth. I was able to use it twice.

Snack Box

Vegancuts Snack Box | September 2021 - Items

This box contains the following:

  • Good To Go – Double Chocolate Snack Bar“This bar tastes like chocolate cake but is actually the perfect guilt-free snack for people on the go.”
    • This was a little brownie size piece of chocolate cake, but very low in sugar (only one). It was a tasty little cake!
  • Outstanding Foods – Nacho Cheese Pigout Pigless Pork Rinds“With 7g of protein per bag, you can feel great about eating the whole thing.”
    • I was not a fan of these. There was hardly any flavor and the little I could taste just was not good. I’ve had far better vegan cheese snacks, and this one pales in comparison to those.
  • Spudsy – Sweet Potato Puffs (Cinnamon Churro OR Spicy Buffalo)“Every sweet potato at Spudsy is upcycled to help reduce food waste deliciously.”
    • I got the cinnamon churro flavor and they tasted just like one, except obviously healthier. They are a bit tougher and chewier than you’d normally expect from a puff, but overall excellent.
  • Rishi Tea – Sparkling Botanicals“Elevated tea sourced with rare ingredients from artisan growers across the earth.”
    • I have the black lemon flavor. It basically tastes like carbonated water, nothing more. There is a slight taste of flavor, but it’s miniscule.
  • Bija Bhar – Resilience Turmeric Elixir“Hawaiian-grown turmeric and ginger that works best when added to water or plant milk, enjoy hot or iced.”
    • I did not receive this item, but it was substituted for Munch Rights BBQ Baked Puffs, which I reviewed in a previous box.
  • Bearded Brothers – Lone Star Vanilla Pecan OR Radical Raspberry Lemon Food Bar“Delightfully flavored bars crafted with all organic fruits, nuts and seeds.”
    • I had the vanilla pecan flavor and it was ok. It’s a fig bar, meaning it’s chewy and sweet. I’m not the biggest fan of fig bars, but’s it’s certainly better than most I’ve had.
  • Sunny Fruit – Organic Dried Apricots“Soft & succulent snacks perfect for a vegan cheese platter or eaten straight out of the bag.”
    • I had these in a previous box and they were pretty good. Normally I’m not the biggest fan of dried fruit, but these are good.
  • LIFEAID – IMMUNITYAID GO or DREAMAID GO“A health-conscious functional beverage invented by athletes for living optimally, without the extra sugar and high caffeine.”
    • I received IMMUNITYAID GO and it’s a product I reviewed previously. It has a nice orange juice taste, but the powder settles to the bottom.

Fall Favorites: The following are considered by subscribers to be the best loved snacks. Some are certainly my favorite!

  • Bakery on Main Organic Sprouted Blueberry Flax Granola OR Iota Classic Seed Shot“This granola is perfect for sprinkling over coconut yogurt or into a bowl of plant-milk for a wholesome breakfast.”
    • I got the Bakery on Main oatmeal, but mine was maple. I enjoy the oatmeal, and had this one in a previous box.
  • Byte Bars D-Bomb Peanut Byte Bar OR Clif Nut Butter Filled Bar“These are the cleanest, best-tasting energy bars we’ve tried in a while.”
    • This was one of my favorites featured in a previous box. But that was the ‘so extra’ flavor. This one is ‘d-bomb’ and am honestly not that big of a fan. It’s a bit too dry for me. I would’ve preferred the Clif product.
  • Chasin’ Dreams Cinnamon Popped Sorghum OR Crazy Go Nuts Maple Walnut Snacks
  • Sorghum is an ancient grain that uses only half the water that most crops need, and because of sorghum’s eco-efficiency, Chasin Dreams is able to produce delicious earth friendly snacks.”
    • I got the amazing maple walnuts again. I’m going to need to buy a huge supply of them, they’re just too amazing. This was my favorite in a previous box.
