Cult Beauty UK 

Online platform selling only tried & tested products that perform.


Cult beauty products are exceptional value. Cult beauty offers reasonable shipping prices to Hong Kong and the USA. Are you sick of buying beauty products that promise a lot but fail to deliver? Cult Beauty was founded by two women wanting to shake up the beauty world by creating a platform that sells cult skincare products that deliver on results.


When you buy products from Cult Beauty, you can expect your skincare regime to get a little easier. Many of the products clearly explain what skincare problems the product is targeting, how to use the product, and when to use the product. Some of the products even let you know when you can expect to start seeing a result.


If you check out the below photo, you can see that the “Versed: Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum” provides clear instructions on the back of the bottle on how, where, and when to use the product.



1. Biossance Your Clean Routine – Overachievers Kit


This Cult beauty box is an all-round solution to dry skin. I bought this in winter, and I noticed the difference within a couple of days. The great thing is that it gets to work overnight, encouraging your skin cells to renew.

The result – you wake up with more refreshed, glowing skin. I love how I can use a couple of drops of Rose Oil with my foundation for creating a dewy complexion. 

Our pick of Cult Beauty products. Biossance Your Clean Routine – Overachievers KitTry before you buy full size bottles.

Pack Includes: 

  • Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream
  • Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum
  • Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
  • Squalane + Omega Repair Cream
  • Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

What We Like 

  • 5 mini versions of Cult bestsellers. 
  • 100% Vegan 
  • Cruelty-free
  • Uses vitamin C, rose oil, squalane, and lactic acid – for brighter, healthy skin.

What We Don’t Like

  • The pack will only last a few days. 


The Overachievers Kit is excellent value for money and will introduce you to sensitive skincare that actually works. That way, you avoid buying many other products that don’t work. 

2. Alpha H Liquid Gold 

This glycolic acid exfoliator gets amazing reviews and is a best seller for Cult. Brilliant for if you are concerned by skin aging, sun damage, or problem skin conditions. 

Cult beauty products Alpha H Liquid Gold. This glycolic acid exfoliator gets amazing reviews.


What We Like 

  • Over time, it lessens the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, blackheads, blemishes, pigmentation, scarring, and redness. 
  • Firms up the skin 
  • Stimulates cell activity to give you a bright complexion.
  • Easy to use overnight treatment. Just apply and sleep. 
  • The formula is great, particularly for acne sufferers. 

What We Don’t Like

  • It needs to be clearer on the website whether this is 100% vegan. 


Alpha H Liquid Gold will work wonders for acne-prone and sensitive skin. The best thing is that Alpha Liquid Gold is a no-fuss skin product. A little goes a long way. 

3. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum

This serum contains antioxidants that replenish the moisture lost from your skin, especially if it is dry. It gets amazing reviews and is a best seller for Cult. Brilliant for if you are concerned by skin aging, sun damage, or problem skin conditions. 

Cult Beauty products are natural and great for dry and sensitive skin

What We Like 

  • It gives you a healthy glow.
  • Thin enough to wear under makeup
  • It smells beautiful – the orange aroma is so fresh! 
  • Use morning and night. 
  • Light-weight formula

What We Don’t Like

  • It is a small bottle – but we understand this is because Vitamin C oxidizes quickly. 


Fresh Serum smells amazing and gives you a consistent dewy glow. It is probably best to buy more than one bottle, as one bottle will last around a month. 

4. Paula’s Choice Defense Essential Glow Moisturizer SPF30 (60ml)

This serum contains antioxidants that replenish the moisture lost from your skin, especially if it is dry.  It gets amazing reviews and is a best seller for Cult. Brilliant for if you are concerned by skin aging, sun damage, or problem skin conditions.

What We Like 

  • Nongreasy 
  • Great makeup base
  • Easy on skin prone to breakouts. 
  • Subtle kiwi smell. 
  • Light-weight formula

What We Don’t Like

  • If you have a lighter complexion, you will have to work it into the skin to make sure you don’t look pale. 


Paula’s Choice moisturizer really is a hit for everyday wear.  It smells subtle and fresh and is easy to wear under makeup, even for sensitive skin. 


5. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel (35ml) 

This cleanser starts off as a cute pink gel and turns to oil in your hands. The pumpkin enzyme effectively removes makeup and dead skin cells to give a fresh complexion. Vitamin A gets to work on improving the look of skin-damaged skin, mature and dry skin by gently removing the surface skin cells and improving elasticity. 

Cult beauty products recommend Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel as it repairs tired, dull skin, giving a fresh complexion.

What We Like 

  • Non-greasy 
  • Removes makeup efficiently
  • Easy on skin prone to breakouts, oily and acne-prone skin
  • Suitable for even the most sensitive skin
  • Light-weight formula
  • Gorgeous light rose scent.

What We Don’t Like

  • It doesn’t shift long-lasting mascara and eyeliner as easily as it claims to.


Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel really is an all-round fab cleanser for many types of skin.  If you love that fresh, healthy glow, only the best cleansers can give; this is the cleanser for you.
