The Cult Beauty Box by Caroline Hirons Review

After missing out on the first beauty box, I wasn't going to miss this one! I'd only heard of a few products in the box, so it was exciting to try things I've never heard of/used. A lot of people have been asking me about the products and for reviews, so thats what I'm doing today. 
You can still get the box at www.cultbeauty.co.uk.





I love the packaging of this box. I love the bright orange print, it's so uplifting and fun. You get 8 products in this box, which is great value for the cost. 


Cleansers


Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cleanser
£22.50 for 150ml

This is a beautiful soft, cream cleanser that soothes, calms and softens the skin. It's especially great for dry, dehydrated, tired and sensitive skins. It contains arctic berries and shea butter, which are great for nourishing and moisturising. Just take a 10p sized amount and massage onto bare, dry skin and remove with a hot flannel. It has a gentle, barely there scent. The skin is clean, but not stripped or disrupted. Great for a morning cleanse of second evening cleanse, not makeup removal. 






RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream
£12.50 for 70g

This coconut cream is amazing. I haven't used it to remove makeup (which is what Caroline recommended it for) but I use it a normal evening cleanse. It's just such a pure form of coconut and it smells incredible. Like a delicious Bounty bar. It's so nourishing and moisturising on the skin. High in lauric acid, it's anti- bacterial and anti-fungal properties make it great for everyone to use, especially acne/blemish prone skin.

Acid Toner


Pixi Glow Tonic 
£18 for 250ml

This product was the main reason I purchased this beauty box. It was completely worth it, definitely lived up to the hype. This is an exfoliating toner, which contains 5% glycolic acid, aloe vera and ginseng. If you read my blog, you'll know acid toning for me is the second most important step in skincare. This toner exfoliates the skin and adds an amazing glow. It smoothes, brightens and clears the skin, perfect for all skin types. You can use AM or PM.

Eye Cream/Gel




Skin Owl Eye+
£36 for 23g

 I was really excited to try this product after Caroline did the reveal on it. It is the best eye product I have tried so far. This is a beautiful eye cream/gel that instantly cools, de-puffs and calms the eye area. It is especially cool, as it's in a glass jar. It smells like cucumbers which I love, so refreshing and light. It's not thick or heavy, great for everyone. 

Serums


Odacite Pomegranate + Rose Geranium Facial Serum Concentrate
£33 for 5ml

2-3 drops of this before or mixed in with your moisturiser will instantly change your skin. It's packed with botanical extracts and vitamin E which moisturise, nourish and replenish the skin. It boosts the skin and puts back in the moisture and hydration. One thing to note, it doesn't have the most pleasant smell. It's kind of like Sunday Riley Artemis, there's no fake fragrance, so you get a full whiff on the natural ingredients. It's not terrible but its very organic smelling. Suitable for all skin types.



REN Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil 
Sample Size - 10ml

This will also change your skin immediately. A couple of drops mixed with or applied before your moisturiser, it will protect the skin and restore suppleness. It's a light oily, serum that absorbs quickly and gives skin a healthy, fresh appearance. To me it has a very slight clementine scent, I don't know if there's anything like this in it, but it's nice and subtle. This product is sleep in a bottle. You will look well rested and alive. Suitable for all skin types.


Moisturiser


Alpha H Essential Hydration Cream
Sample size - 30ml

I love this product. It's a great basic moisturiser for AM or PM. It smells almost minty to me, which I really like, it's a light texture and absorbs quickly. Packed with essentially fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, it soothes, repairs and restores the lustre in the skin. It sits nicely on top of any serum or toner, and a little goes a long way.


Multi-use






Pommade Divine Nature's Remedy Balm
£19.80 for 50ml

I'm so glad Caroline included this in the box. This formula has been used for over 200 years to soothe, comfort and aid skin problems. It  contains beautiful essential oils which restore the skin's softness and suppleness. This balm is also great for eczema and dermatitis which I have. After all the scratching and irritation, this really helps calm and relieve it. The scent is quite warm and medicinal. Suitable for all skin types. I use this on my body, not face.


Summary
To sum up, this box is amazing. Caroline and Cult Beauty did an amazing job putting these products together. There isn't one product that I don't like or use. I love how everything works for all skin types and will work for everyone. The value is amazing for 6 full sizes and 2 sample. This was definitely worth the hype and I'm so glad I picked it up. I hope the reviews were helpful for those who wanted more details on the products. Let's hope the winter box will be just as good! Thank you for reading.

    1. You're so right there! Sometimes you get products with a scent that smells quite fake, but this is just pure mouth watering coconut haha. I think you'd love it, I definitely recommend it to you. It's not a bad price either. <3 x
