In the box asking how I liked the lip balm, I put 'please stop sending me lip balm'.

HA! Perfect. I made a note about it as well. But seriously, please stop sending me lip balm.

That's why I stopped my subs. Too much crepe I don't need. I am going to make tinted balm with my OCC tars too since I don't use them. How did you do that Amanda? Just heat up a balm somehow?

I've been thinking about switching to Vegan Presence - you get less items but it seems to be slightly more pricey items, plus they include a snack with each box, it looks like. It's $60 for three months, and this month it's $5 off because it's their anniversary. I like getting stuff in the mail, but I can't use up stuff fast enough so a box with less items and something that i'm going to eat sounds good, and the food item is often chocolate. Plus I think this is the one that has you fill out a survey so they can customize your box?

Sunny has a crapton of reviews on VP.

Yep, I just got all the balm out of the tube (twist it up all the way and cut it off/scoop it out) and melted it in a little microwave safe bowl. Mixed in a few drops of lip tar at a time until I got the color/opacity I wanted, microwaved again to liquify it all completely, and then twisted the tube all the way down and poured it back in. It was ready to use by morning. Easy peasy.

MBM, I was thinking about switching to Petit Vour but Vegan Presence looks pretty good too. And I always appreciate a snack. Hmm.

i've been getting the vegan presence box for about a year, and i really like it! they send beauty products, but also other things (snacks, candles, a treat for your pup or kitty) each month, so it's a nice variety. and yes, this is the one where you fill out a little survey about certain preferences (it's how i ended up with a navy blue nail polish when other people got pink, yay!) so that they can tailor things for you when possible.

Awesome! Tomorrow is the last day to get the $5 off so I might go for it. I think it's a little annoying that you have to remember to re-sign yourself up every three months though.

One of the reasons I was so excited for the Vegan Cuts box initially is because Melisser was in charge of it and I know she knows her shiitake, but she doesn't work for them anymore so i'm a little worried about what's going to happen with the box.

hmm, i didn't realize you had to re-up every three months! i think when i originally signed up, i just bought a year's subscription. maybe it's different now? i should probably check.

i also didn't realize melisser wasn't associated with the vegan cuts box anymore. sad trombone.

Yeah, if you follow their youtube account you'll notice that the unboxing videos with Strummer have stopped, which sucks.

Anyway, I signed up for Vegan Presence! If you mention another subscriber's name when you fill out the form for a three month subscription, they get a month free so I put down bluedawg. If anyone else wants to sign up and would like to use my name, please do.

The March Vegan Cuts box is going to have another bottle of LVX nail polish in it. So. I guess i'll cancel after that.

Hmm. I didn't really like the other one (it was weirdly goopy and thick) and I need more nail polish like I need... well, more nail polish. I'm torn.

Yeah, I was more thinking of the value of the polish that if I needed/wanted it - it's pink and I have a ton of pink. So I went ahead and canceled and the confirmation email I got was signed 'The teary—eyed Vegan Cuts team'. FFS.

Yeah, I cancelled. Money is tight this month and the polish isn't a color I'd really wear anyway. I think I'll give Petit Vour or Vegan Presence a shot at some point in the future to get my beauty box fix.

I decided to cancel Petit Vour after I got my box this month. I wasn't into the nail wraps or the hair stuff as I don't like silicone in my hair, and the skin stuff is just so-so. I think doing a beauty box for a few months can be fun but then it gets old for me after a while.

Sadly, the nail wraps seemed to be the only thing of value in the PV box. I cancelled as well. They have had some good boxes in the past but I think it is time for me to move on.

Apparently I signed up too late for Vegan Presence and the March box was sold out, so i'm getting my first one in April. I'm fine with skipping a month, but I only found this out after looking for their facebook page because I hadn't gotten a box yet. Vegan Cuts sends too many emails, VP doesn't send enough. I haven't gotten one since my confirmation.

Okay, after watching the official unboxing video for Vegan Cuts for March, i'm glad I canceled. The nail polish was the only makeup. Also apparently Vegan Cuts now has 'beauty ambassadors' the get the box free every month in exchange for opening them on camera, and the two i've seen so far aren't vegans. So. I'm pretty over Vegan Cuts.

That... is pretty off-putting to me.
