3 Brands to Try from Cult Beauty


Cult Beauty is a must-visit site in my opinion as they stock so many brands that are awkward to get hold of in the UK. This makes it the perfect place to make random discoveries and try products you may not have otherwise. So, I thought I’d share with you some of the brands I’ve discovered through Cult Beauty and some of my favourite products from them! This time I'm focussing on skin but let me know if you enjoy this and I may follow it up.

Oxygenetix

Oxgenetix is a brand originally created for doctors. It’s focussed on creating base products that double up as skincare. The aim is not only to provide complete but lightweight coverage without any irritation but also to diminish scarring and hydrate the skin. The packaging is very basic for the price but I do hear this is being updated as we speak!

My Top Pick from Oxygenetix

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation* | £45

This is what I like to call a 'natural skin' foundation; it's not dewy and it's not matte. I have combination skin and this works really well for me as it's non-drying, hydrating but not wet-looking. The shade Walnut is a pretty good match for me. It looks and feels so natural and breathable on the skin. It's billed as a sort of '2 in 1' skincare and makeup product. I tend to reach for this if my skin is acting up or I've been eating a little unhealthily or drinking a bit much and my skin is feeling tired, dehydrated and blemish-prone as a result. It evens out my skin and offers good coverage whilst feeling extremely lightweight. It doesn't clog my pores or break me out so if your skin is prone to reactions then this is a sound investment. 

REN

This has to be hands down one of my favourite skincare brands when it comes to treatments and cleansers because they’ve never once disappointed me. Despite the more high-end price, again the packaging is more functional than luxury but it’s very practical and hygienic. Plus, you can always see how much you have left! REN is a British brand built around the concept of clean skincare using only 100% plant and mineral derived actives.

My Top Picks from REN


This is my absolute favourite morning/second cleanser of any that I’ve tried since starting this blog. My skin is definitely combination and whilst it’s prone to patches of oiliness and blemishes, it also gets quite dehydrated. This is the perfect formula for combating my skin concerns and restoring some balance to my skin. I love the clay-based formula as it leaves my skin feeling clean but not squeaky clean or stripped. It’s not too harsh but still makes my skin feel fresh whilst hugely improving the look of existing blemishes and preventing new ones forming. I also just love the feel and natural fragrance of this.


My other major concern is that my skin is prone to looking dull and lifeless. This mask is one of those magical AHA formulas that seem to bring my skin to life. I use this for around 10 minutes once a week. It’s a sort of marmalade-consistency formula that smells quite fruity. I just apply a thin layer and rinse it off once the time is up. There’s such an immediate, noticeable difference, it’s really quite incredible. My skin looks glowing, healthy and fresher when I use this.

You can read about the Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial here and I will be posting on Wake Wonderful soon.

Pixi Beauty

Pixi Beauty is a skincare and makeup brand founded by Swedish-born Petra Strand. It was initially only really available in the London boutique near Carnaby Street but you can now pick it up in Liberty and very recently it’s been rolled out to Marks and Spencer stores nationwide. Us non-Londoners can also order directly from the Pixi website and there’s a limited range of their products on Cult Beauty, ASOS, Beauty Bay and Look Fantastic. In terms of price, I find Pixi to be a true mid-range brand (which are hard to come by!) I think the packaging makes it seem cheaper and more teenager-y than Pixi really is, though I do like the little rose gold details. Whilst I find the makeup can be a little hit-and-miss, I’m a very big fan of the skincare products I’ve tried from them so far.

My Top Picks from Pixi Beauty

Glow Tonic | £18

Probably the product you’ve heard about! I didn’t pick this up until over Summer as I was never entirely clear on what it did. Essentially this is an acid toner – a little like a less-concentrated liquid equivalent to the REN mask I was just talking about. It’s gentle enough for daily use, though I use it 3-4 times a week. It’s orange in colour and like many AHAs has a fruity scent. I’m a big fan of this as it not only gives me an instant boost of radiance but it’s really helped to fade some old blemish scars I’ve been struggling with.


This is a pretty new purchase but I’ll be posting about it soon! It’s essentially a companion product to the Glow Tonic and also contains 5% glycolic acid. So far though I love the consistency of this on the skin and how clean it makes my face feel without any foaming. It’s really nicely hydrating too and once rinsed off you can see an immediate improvement to the look of my skin. It looks so much more vibrant, even though this is such a gentle product.

The Mattelustre Lipstick in Bitten Rose and Glow Serum are new additions so I'll be posting on those soon.

  9. Totally agree with your thoughts on REN. Although I'm not the biggest fan of their moisturisers, their cleansers, serums and masks are amazing and I always have at least one on the go. I've never tried anything by Pixi - I used to think about them for their make up, but everyone seems to be singing their praises for their skincare, so perhaps it is time to give them a try. I love that you have chosen your top picks of each brand :) Great post, as always! Always look forward to your posts - always super informative!

  29. That REN mask is a great bet for normal/dry skin types. Glycolic acid works wonders on dry skin and gets it springing back to normal in no time!
