Without a doubt my favourite piece of mail each month is my beauty box. I love getting a monthly surprise! Over the past couple of years the number of beauty boxes which are out there catering for the cruelty free and vegan market has steadily increased, which is great. It means whether you want monthly or quarterly; make up or beauty; natural or any type of products you can hopefully find the right fit for you.
Not sure where to start with going cruelty free, monthly beauty boxes are perfect for you! I know many people are put off quite simply because they don’t know what or where to buy when it comes to cruelty free products. These boxes remove any uncertainty. The box is delivered straight to you and you can be safe in the knowledge everything inside is totally cruelty free and vegan if that is your preference.
Been cruelty free for years? They are for you too! They allow you to discover new brands and more often than not from small businesses who put a bit of love into making the products too, which is obviously always a bonus! What is even better is you can try these new products without spending a small fortune, which is great for anyone.
Below, I have picked out the 5 boxes on the market which I think look the best! Personally I have only subscribed to The Vegan Kind box, but the others are just subscriptions waiting to happen! I hope you can find the perfect one for you…….
The Vegan Kind
The Vegan Kind do two types of box. One is a monthly lifestyle box (mostly food), the other a quarterly beauty box. I only subscribe to the beauty box and have always been pleased with it. Every quarter there are a couple of new brands to try. As it is quarterly, this box is great for those who want to try new products and brands but can’t afford or want to spend £20 a month. Buy it here for £14.99 plus postage.
The Natural Beauty Box
For me, this is the ultimate beauty box, natural, cruelty free and vegan, what more could you want! It is a little bit more expensive than others at £24.95 a month. But for that you are getting £50 of goodies with no nasties. They also try their best to support small UK businesses as one of their main aims. Buy it here.
The Pip Box
This box is just £14.99 plus shipping. They promise 5 cruelty free products each month, and if you choose it, all 100% vegan. The Pip Box aims to include full sized products and avoid samples, to give a box worth about £35 each month. As this box was created to encourage others to go cruelty free they also try to vary brands as best they can. If you want to find out more, get the info here.
The Cruelty Free Beauty Box
This is the most flexible monthly box of the list. You can select either a make up or beauty box and then give preferences, so it really can be tailored to what you want. Personally I like to try new things and that is part of the fun of a monthly box, but if you know you never wear make up, this beauty box could be perfect for you. Subscribe here, starting at just £14.95.
This is an American box but it does ship to the UK, with $25 a month being the highest price. They brand the box as being cruelty free luxury products, so expect to find some bigger names. As with the Cruelty Free Beauty Box you can tailor it to your preferences. They can’t always guarantee it will match, but they do try! Take a look here for more info.
