The Best Vegan Beauty Subscription Boxes to Give as Gifts

A gift is a beautiful thing to give and to receive. The best thing about giving a cruelty-free beauty subscription box is that with a one-time purchase, our gift goes on and on; an offering of love that arrives on a monthly basis.

Here are seven reasons why Kinder Beauty boxes are the very best vegan beauty subscription boxes to give as gifts.

Spreading kindness year-round

When it comes to vegan beauty subscription boxes featuring tons of vegan beauty products, there can be a lot of unknowns. but with Kinder Beauty, you can be confident that you are giving a gift that causes no suffering for animals or humans.

Kinder Beauty ensures that every product in each box they send out contains no harmful toxins, is completely vegan, and that no ingredients were tested on animals. Kinder also donates a portion of its proceeds to important organizations that help animals, people, and the planet.

In 2021 alone, Kinder Beauty’s vegan beauty subscription boxes have benefitted: Black Girls Code, Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, Loveland Foundation, Animal EqualityAli Forney CenterPhysicians Committee for Responsible MedicineAfro-Vegan Society, and Veganism is the Next Evolution farmed animal sanctuary. Not only will all of the products in your gift be kind, but the money you spend will go on to help others. 

That's a monthly subscription anyone can get behind!

Positive partnerships

Many of the companies whose products go into Kinder’s vegan beauty subscription boxes also donate a portion of their proceeds to benefit important causes. Kinder Beauty had the honor of partnering with Pacifica Beauty for the June 2021 Kinder Beauty boxes, which has supported the ACLU on social justice issues. They have also given back to women’s and LGBTQ-focused shelters.

Kinder Beauty is more than a makeup box; we have also been thrilled to partner with vegan and cruelty-free skincare line Franklin & Whitman which donates a percentage of all sales to dog rescue organizations. The company also hosts regular events that benefit homeless dogs.

Another Kinder Beauty partner, Eco Lips—creator of all-natural and organic cosmetics—supports causes including Connect CR, which is creating a wetland trail around an urban lake; Wings2Water, which is cleaning waterways in the Mississippi watershed; and SheJumps, which helps women by teaching them outdoor skills in a fun and inclusive environment

The gift of self-care

We all know we should make self-care a priority but let’s face it, with hefty work schedules, family demands, and other commitments, self-care often falls to the bottom of the list.

By gifting someone with Kinder’s vegan beauty subscription boxes, you are giving them the self-care they need, but may not be investing in for themselves. Arriving home to a box full of carefully curated, vegan, cruelty-free, and clean cosmetics is the invitation we could all use to celebrate ourselves. Cruelty-free beauty boxes are the ultimate in self-care and make the perfect gift.

It’s so much easier to take the time to honor our own bodies when the tools for self-care are selected and given to us. Receiving a Kinder Beauty Box in the mail is a monthly reminder that we are valuable, worthy, and that someone else not only wants us to take the time to take care of ourselves but is giving us what we need in order to do that.

Self-care is not self-indulgence; it is a necessity. How can we give back to the world if we don’t have anything left to give? Anxiety and stress caused by daily life deplete us. We often feel that we have no energy left for ourselves after we’ve taken care of all of our responsibilities to others.

We have lofty goals and admirable values, yet sometimes we feel that we just want to hide under the covers. There’s nothing like a box full of self-loving goodies to lift someone up. By giving someone the gift of self-care, you are offering them the energy boost they may need to shake off stress so that they can take care of themselves and take on the world. A dose of a monthly beauty gift is enough to make anyone feel loved.

Only the best

Ordering online can be so impersonal—yet when you give someone the gift of Kinder’s vegan beauty subscription boxes, you are not only investing in parcels filled with fun and fabulous cosmetics, but you are enlisting the Kinder team to hand-select only the best vegan, cruelty-free, and clean products.

Every month, Kinder carefully selects makeup, skincare, and hair products from a sea of options. Boxes include the best vegan, cruelty-free self-care and beauty products around. Cosmetics that make it into the boxes not only meet Kinder’s high ethical standards, but the team carefully picks the items they believe will delight recipients the most.

Each month, anyone gifted a subscription will receive one of two curated boxes. The products you receive include products from the best vegan makeup brands as well as useful, next-level beauty tools.

If subscribers received our Summer Lovin’ Box in July 2021, they unpacked Honua Skincare: Malu Day Cream SPF 30, Franklin & Whitman: Nail and Cuticle Serum, Three Ships: Purify Aloe and Amino Acid Cleanser, Pure Sol: Perk Up Gold Eye Mask, Charlotte Cook: Lip Gloss in Brooklyn, and a bonus item of PlantFusion: Collagen Builder in chocolate or vanilla. In other months they might have received Farmhouse Fresh: Harvest Green Shea Butter for Hands, Bellapierre Cosmetics: Mineral Blush in Amaretto, or Glaminizers: Serenity Anxiety Oil.

Long-distance love

Kinder’s vegan beauty subscription boxes offer a great way to show up in our loved ones' lives, no matter where we are on the planet. Whether we are giving a subscription as a gift to a BFF, a parent, a sibling, or a pal, we can arrange for a little bit of love to land on their doorstep despite any distance.

It certainly is a ray of sunshine to come home from a long day at work or school to find a gift from someone you care about on your doorstep. Kinder lets you brighten up a loved one’s day from thousands of miles away, twelve times a year.

The products in Kinder’s vegan beauty subscription boxes are crafted with love, curated with love, and then given—by you—with love. So why not surprise someone you care about with a box-full of adoration?

It’s sure to bring cheer, even on gloomy days. Then send them more cheer, every month of the year.
