Being or becoming vegan is only getting easier as the mass movement of ethically-minded people gathers across the globe, connected by the internet.
This process of the idea expanding has brought both challenges and opportunities, from misinformation and pushback on health issues to new business opportunities and exciting products.
One company that has made solid headway in satisfying the market need for vegan products is Vegancuts, a subscription box service that celebrates the diversity of the vegan lifestyle by delivering high-quality vegan products to your doorstep.
In this post cover the mission, the boxes and products on offer, the pricing, shipping, and more – so that you can decide if a subscription is something you'd like, or perhaps a friend might like as a gift.
The team at Vegancuts have set about creating a full-circle lifestyle model that provides both information and products to help people along in their vegan journey.
This entails an extensive blog that covers everything from recipes to tips on beauty and lifestyle hacks.
The company focus is on enhancing the knowledge base of their customers and broadening people's horizons as to the breathe of vegan-cruelty-free products on the market.
Open the Door to Surprising Vegan Delights
Helping the Animals
Vegancuts don't just walk the vegan walk, they walk the talk, too. Each month, a percentage of the sales revenue from their three subscription boxes is donated to an animal sanctuary.
Past donations have been made to donkey and wolf sanctuaries and tortoise rescue.
Our knowledgeable box curators search every corner of the vegan world to discover the most exciting new products from new and established brands. They thoroughly examine ingredients, test all products and carefully craft each box to deliver an unboxing experience that will delight you.
Vegancuts runs a monthly delivery system of Snack, Beauty, and Make-up Boxes.
This works in the same way as many other subscription services: you pay a monthly fee and the box is delivered to your doorstep. Surprise!
The principal advantage of the Vegancuts model is two-fold:
- The goods supplied are often new releases before they are available in shops. This is obviously a massive boon to those of us who like new ideas and flavors.
- The goods are guaranteed to be ethically-sourced, vegan, and quite often things you'd never have otherwise discovered.
The subscription service offers 3 box options, as below:
1. The Snack Box
From avocado chips and hummus crackers to unique nut butters and chocolate, and healthy options like dried tropical fruit, the Vegancuts Snack Box curates high-quality snacks and meal additions on a monthly basis.
Every month the team searches for new trends and product releases that provide a tasty, cruelty-free experience straight to your door.
Chris, our expert Snack Box curator, endlessly searches the vegan world for new vegan snack ideas, stays on the cutting edge of the latest vegan news and trends, and aims to make your monthly snack box an unforgettable experience free from harm to animals.
2. The Beauty Box
How many of us have suffered the indignity of purchasing skin care products only to discover subsequently that, alas, the producer was a subsidiary of a company that engages in animal testing?
Vegancuts helps you avoid this horror.
Each month you'll receive a surprise mix of various beauty products, including makeup, skincare, hair care and body care and more.
The box includes only cruelty-free and conscious brands – paraben-free and free of harmful chemicals.
Products come supplied by brands such as GlamNatural, Pangea Organics and Pacifica, among many others. Highly recommended.
3. Makeup Box
The Makeup Box is seasonally themed and sent quarterly. You’ll receive at least four full-size vegan cosmetics with color customization available for featured products.
It is for makeup lovers who are only interested in full-size makeup products and want to have their boxes tailored to their beauty profile. This differs from the surprise element of the Beauty Box detailed above.
The box is curated to reflect current seasonal trends and includes hot new items and unique new-to-market products. Every inclusion is non-toxic and of course cruelty-free.
The marketplace is essentially the Vegancuts online store.
Each product is subject to rigorous evaluation before being listed to ensure that not only the ingredients and manufacturing process is truly vegan and cruelty free but the products are of high quality and worthy of being part of your lifestyle.
The marketplace covers food, beauty, and lifestyle products. I might add that this is also a good place to evaluate the value you're getting with your monthly subscription box. More often that not you'll find that it does pay to have a subscription.

Pricing & Shipping

- 3 months: $74.85

- United States: Free
- Canada: Included
- International: Included
As you can see the pricing is certainly favors those living in the US; the boxes are cheaper and you benefit from free shipping.
For Canada and international orders the shipping is built into the price, and this obviously makes it more expensive.
The 12-month option is obviously a big outlay for the average earner, but you do save $40, which is essentially getting a box free.
I think this is a great birthday or Christmas gift for a loved one, because it means getting a surprise every month for the entire year.
Even the 6-month option would be a wonderful gift to receive. Who doesn't love snack surprises? And the majority of women would certainly appreciate a beauty box!
Cancelling a Subscription & Refund Policy
If you want to cancel a subscription, you'll need to do so before the 10th of the month. Billing is always on the 10th of the month, so if you cancel on the 10th, it's too late because you will have been billed and will receive that month's box.
So it is best to do so by the 8th; to be sure it gets processed.
Vegancuts does not refund subscription charges once they have been paid. This is because even if your box hasn't shipped the shipping process has already begun.
If you have a 12-month subscription and you cancel on month 8, you won't be billed again, but you will not receive a refund. Your subscription will run as normal until you've received all 12 months – but your subscription will not renew. The same goes for 3 and 6-month subscriptions.
I've enjoyed a number of snack boxes, and ordered a beauty box for my wife for her birthday.
My daughter loves the snack boxes and the element of surprise that comes with that. No matter how advanced technology has become, there's nothing quite like getting a surprise present through the post.
However, I would say that this is a luxury service, certainly for the average person. Indeed, most subscription box services of this nature are.
I say that because the products you receive might not be products you'd have gone out and bought yourself. Like me, you probably work to a budget each month and many organic, vegan, and independently branded products tend to be on the expensive side and fall outside your normal spend.
That said, the upside to the Vegancuts boxes is that you get the products at a discounted price and you get to spoil yourself in the process. And as previously mentioned, these boxes make fantastic gifts, especially for close friends and family who you don't see that often because they live far away.
