Over a year ago, I called it quits and cancelled my short-lived subscription to popular beauty box company, Birchbox. After having been a vegan for some time, I’ve found myself discovering ways to live my life as a vegan aside from practicing a plant-based diet giving up all products containing animal ingredients and brands conducting testing on animals. Before giving up Birchbox, I found myself going through everything in my box to learn about the brands and to see if they were vegan and/or cruelty-free.
Unfortunately, I was throwing out more product than I was using and asked myself “Is this box really worth it?” Then the thought occurred to me – maybe there’s a way for me to request for vegan and/or cruelty free products. Soon enough, I was chatting online with one of their super helpful customer service representatives. She was so sweet and understood where I was coming from. She provided information about their “natural beauty” program, but informed me that Birchbox could not guarantee these products would be vegan or cruelty-free. I was disappointed to hear this news and decided it was time to part ways and search for something new that places value in being kind to the animals. (Not to mention there’s some confusion where in a 2014 post published by the Birchbox team, they mention taking some initiative in an attempt to go 100% cruelty free. There is no disclosure on whether or not they’ll consider vegan products, but this is still only the beginning. To see more from this post, click here.)
Through further research, I discovered Petit Vour. They are not the only company who provides monthly subscription boxes with vegan and cruelty free products, but the price and perks for being a member appealed to me the most. For $15/month ($23/month in Canada, $25/month Worldwide), you get four generous samples of all vegan, non-toxic and cruelty free product based on your profile. If you shop Petit Vour online, you receive 20% back in store credit to spend on apparel,beauty items, hair accessories, handbags, wallets, home goods, jewelry and sales. So yeah, this was a no-brainer. Now that I’ve been a subscriber for almost a year, I’ve found so many product’s I love and can’t get enough of.
