Vegan Cuts, an online marketplace and beauty box curating site of the best vegan products, has teamed up with Leaping Bunny (the grand master of cruelty free certification) to create a specialty starter kit to help you discover some great cruelty free brands.
Up front I'll tell you that I love Leaping Bunny, and as a certified cruelty free brand ourselves, I can 100% get behind this Vegan Cuts Fresh Start Kit.
Here's what you'll get:
Alba Botanica: ACNEdote Clean 'n Treat Towelettes - 10-pack, 2.4 oz.
Aubrey Organics: EveryDay Basics Moisturizer - 1.7 oz.
Crazy Rumors: Plum Apricot Bunny Balm - 1 oz.
Desert Essence: Hand and Body Lotion - 8 oz. (Italian Lemon or Island Mango scent)

Wellinhand Action Remedies: Tangerine Vanilla Astringent Toner - 6 oz.

What I love most is that all of these products are ones I've never used before. As a beauty blogger, that is refreshing, but also as someone who wants to support cruelty free brands, I loved that this Vegan Cuts Leaping Bunny Fresh Start Kit ($27.95 USD) helped me discover them.
I have combination skin and the Alba Botanica ACNEdote Clean 'n Treat Towelettes, Wellinhand Action Remedies Tangerine Vanilla Astringent Toner and Aubrey Organics EveryDay Basics Moisturizer have worked so well with my skin. The towelettes have been a great makeup remover without leaving a greasy residue behind; the toner's scent is a welcomed one as most toners I've used have that herbal or medicinal fragrance to them; and the moisturizer absorbs quickly and actually makes my skin look more matte (which I am a huge fan of.)
I've heard such great things about Crazy Rumors, and as a lip balm addict, this shea butter balm has been on my lips since I opened the kit. Smells yummy and my lips are so hydrated. JASON Antiplaque Toothpaste is a mix between paste and gel and does a great job cleaning my teeth. I loved that the toothbrush from Preserve is made from recycled yogurt cups! This was a great way to show my sons exactly what recycling and repurposing means.
As someone who is kind of weird in loving to remove peeling skin from a sunburn (don't judge), I can now move that into a healthier habit with Montagne Jeunesse's Cucumber Peel Off Face Masque. There's something therapeutic about taking off the old to reveal the new. In my box was the Island Mango lotion from Desert Essence and it'll remind you of an island getaway. And lastly, the mojito mint breath spray from hello is a must-have in your handbag.
Another benefit of purchasing the Fresh Start Kit is that a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Leaping Bunny program. (I encourage you to learn more about what they do!)
