Cult Beauty Shopping

Over the last few months Cult Beauty has become my go-to site for browsing and shopping. With my orders I always seem to get either a £5 or £10 discount code as well which makes me want to order even more products, it's vicious circle! So far, there hasn't been a product I've ordered that I haven't been impressed with. Some of them have even become favourites like the CND Stickey base coat.

Anna from Vivianna Does Make-up has talked about Therapie Himalyan Detox Salts quite a few times and I was intrigued by them. But it was when Fleur talked about them in one of her videos that made me grab my card and order them immediately. I have a hard time sleeping and I always have ever since I was little. On bad nights, even if I'm exhausted, it can literally take me hours to fall asleep and even then I'll still toss and turn all night as well as waking up constantly. I've tried practically everything from black out blinds, did not work, to soothing music, did work but I end up waking up as soon as the tape finishes. I also tried the This Works pillow spray which turns out I am allergic to! I never feel like I get a good nights sleep and I always wake up feeling just as tired.

This is where these bath salts from Therapie come in. You throw a handful into the bath, soak for 20 minutes and then once out the bath you're not meant to touch anything electrical for two hours before you go to bed. You're then meant to have the best night sleep ever. First of all these smell amazing, a mix of lavender and lemongrass. I have to say when I first used these I was a little disappointed but I did have very high expectations. I didn't sleep any better than normal but we'll see if that changes once I use them more often.

Next up is another recommendation from Anna, a brush cleanser from The Pro Make Up Shop. I'm using the brush cleanser from Mac at the moment and although it works well, I don't like the packaging. Since I've nearly finished the bottle I wanted to try something new and this one has a spray so makes using it so much easier. It also works just as well as the Mac version for the same price and has a nice lemongrass sort of scent.

I am loving face masks at the moment and this one from Aesop has been on my wish list for such a long time. It's the Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Mask which is meant to draw out impurities without drying your skin out. I'm yet to try this but I'm sure I'll be featuring it on the blog at some point in the near future.

With orders over £30 you can pick three free samples so I chose Tend Skin Liquid which is meant to stop shaving rashes and ingrown hairs, another product Anna has raved about. I've already finished the Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate which I'm going to have to buy the full size of as I loved it. I'm still using the Aesop Parsley Seed Eye Serum but I have to say, I'm not really a fan.

  1. I use the Aesop Parsley Seed masque all the time (twice a week atm) and it's amazing! Skin is visibly better when it comes off. Why doesn't it work for you?
    I recently bought the MAC brush cleanser and I agree- they need to sort the packaging out.
