Vegan Cuts Beauty Box: May 2014 Unboxing

Hello there! I have been loving subscription boxes lately, and today I'll be unboxing my May Vegan Cuts box for you. Now Vegan Cuts has two separate boxes, one catered towards food and the other beauty (which is the one I have today). Let's take a look!

The Subscription Box: Vegan Cuts 

The Cost: $19.95

The Products: 4-7 products that are 100% cruelty free and mostly organic and natural!

This month, I received six products and I would consider four of them very well sized. Let's take a further look!

 Gourmet Body Treats Finishing Powder: FULL SIZE ($25) Now, I don't think I would pay $25 for this powder if it wasn't in this box simply because only about 1/3 of the jar is full. I've never seen a powder quite this empty. However, for being in a subscription box, this is a really good size product that I will definitely be using. 

Skinagain Vanish Lotion: FULL SIZE ($52) WOW! Another full sized product?! And a high-end one at that. This is great for any skin type and I'm actually really excited to try this out. Normally, I don't go out and spend this much on my own for a skincare product, so I'm glad it was in this box.

Sevi Blue Yarrow Sea Salt Texturizer: 2.15 oz ($4) I'm obsessed with salt sprays, especially now that it is summer time and I'm always at the beach. This isn't a full-sized product but it is a really good amount!

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lash Strengthening Mascara:Travel Size ($9) This little mascara is adorable and perfect to take with you on the go!

Tallulah Jane Natural Perfume Vial: ($2) This little perfume smells great! 

Goddess Garden Organics Sunny Body SPF 30 Sunscreen: (Sample) I'm not a big fan of "foil packets" because I rarely use them and in this case, I already have lots of other sunblocks. 

Box Cost: $19.95
Box is Worth: $92

This was my first month trying out Vegan Cuts and WOW! The value was phenomenal and I can actually say that I'll be using every item I received (with the exception of the sunblock, I'm sure). This is great for beauty lovers like myself who are also against animal cruelty. Have you tried Vegan Cuts before? Let me know in the comments below!

Beauty Army: May 2014 Unboxing

Hello loves! Yikes--its already June! Where has the time gone? Today I wanted to share with you my Beauty Army Box that I received for the month of May. Let's take a look:

The Subscription Box: Beauty Army
The Cost: $12/month
The Products: You can choose up to 6 samples.

What's different about BeautyArmy than other beauty subscription boxes is that every month you can see the items in your showroom (based on a quiz you've taken) and then you can select which samples you'd like to receive. This does take the element of surprise out of the box, which I normally love, but at least if there is something you want to try you can select it!  

Dermis 8 Exfoliating Soap Bar: $4.99 This is a great travel size soap bar! I have yet to use it, and am saving it for my next trip!

BH Cosmetics California Collection Sample: Now this collection sample is a bit old and was released  in 2013. However, I never got around to trying it out so this sample is great. Plus, I'm already a fan of BH Cosmetics

Vidal Sassoon Gloss Cream: $3.29 Wow! This is a big, full sized product. Not expensive, but a great size to really get a feel for how it works.

Amala Hydrate Trio, Kate Somerville CC Cream, and No. 7 Day & Night Cream: I'm not a big fan of foil packets, I have a drawer full of them and never get around to using them. I see these three joining them.

Overall, it wouldn't hurt to take a look and see what's in your Beauty Army Showroom. You can always pass if nothing perks your interest or if you see something you've been wanting to try-go for it! I feel that you do get your money's worth, but not much more than that as you do with some other boxes. Have you tried out BeautyArmy? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
