Cult Beauty Skin Care Haul!

Hi, everyone! We all know that I'm a huge sucker for skin care and there's no denying that one of my favourite online sources for luxurious, hard to find complexion pick-me-ups is Cult Beauty. They have an amazing selection of cult favourite brands that aren't available here in Canada, so when they had a site-wide sale last month, I snapped up a few goodies. 



Oskia is a brand I've heard raved about by several UK-based bloggers, most notably Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. The range features beautiful naturally-based, but highly effective pampering treats, and I thought my best foray into the brand would be via their adorable little travel kit, the Oskia Secret Weekend Discovery Collection. It contains their Perfect Cleanser (a rich, soothing, moisturizing cleansing balm), Bedtime Beauty Boost (a lightweight reviving night cream) and the Renaissance Mask, designed to gently slough off dead skin while brightening and refining. I've sampled each and I have to say the textures of all three are beyond lovely! 

My second selection is a mask I've been lusting after for ages, mostly due to numerous raves from Ruth at A Model Recommends. She has touted the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask as the most effective clarifying mask in her arsenal, so who am I to argue? This posh clay-based mask is rich with minerals and vitamins thanks to locally-sourced Hungarian muds and waters and aims to mattify, even skin tone, and brighten. It has a rich grey creamy texture that feels warm on the skin initially, then cools ever so nicely. It really did a great job at thoroughly cleansing my skin without any irritation!

The final full-sized item I chose was the Alpha-H Instant Facial. Alpha-H aims to effectively, yet gently exfoliate problem skin, which is a mantra my sensitive, acne-prone complexion can get behind. The Instant Facial is a liquid treatment that can be used much like a toner in the evening. It features glycolic acid to exfoliate, treat blemishes, and even skin tone, as well as a concoction of natural ingredients like cypress, barley, and thyme to soothe and hydrate. This is probably the most convenient exfoliant I've ever used! 

To round up my purchase, I snagged a couple fancy ass samples. I opted for the Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser, touted to detoxify and exfoliate combination to oily skin, and Omorovicza Gold Hydralifting Mask, designed to add instant radiance to morning skin. Can't wait to give them a go!



I have yet to be disappointed by anything I've picked up from Cult Beauty. The brands are top-notch and truly satisfy any skin care fiend's desires. I'm super pleased with everything in this haul and I'm sure my skin will be as well!

Have you ever ordered from Cult Beauty? Sampled any goodies from Oskia, Omorovicza, Alpha-H, or Sunday Riley? What are your favourite online skin care resources?

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week! xo

  11. Oh now I want that Oskia set, too LOL

    I love the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask! It cleanses and calms at the same time. I don't like mud masks in general, but this is one that I keep repurchasing.
