Caroline Hirons x Cult Beauty Box: First Impressions





I was so excited when this parcel from Cult Beauty arrived. I had seen Caroline Hirons discuss previous Cult Beauty Boxes on her Youtube channel but had never been able to get my hands on one...until now. This box features some of CH's superhero skincare products that she counts in her all-time favourites list. So I was most excited to try some of these items for the first time!

The products all came individually packaged and homed in a giant, black Cult Beauty Box. It was accompanied by a small booklet highlighting Caroline's thoughts on each product and how to use them.



I started out first with the Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream and Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner as I did not have an eye cream or toner included in my current routine. First impressions of the Indie Lee toner were "Where have you been all of my life?!". It made my skin feel so so soft- like nothing else I had used before. I was telling everyone at home to touch my face to see how soft it was! The results were instantaneous and I am already planning to repurchase this, once I run out (although the bottle is a very generous size and I am sure will last me quite a few months).

I loved the citrus smell of the Tata Harper eye cream- it felt lovely to apply however the effects are not instant so will have to get back to you on this one, after using it for a longer amount of time. The cream is housed in gorgeous gold and green packaging that exudes the luxury that is Tata Harper skincare.

I have used the Dr Dennis Gross alpha-beta pads before and loved the effects so was happy to have a small stash of these again. They provide a very effective acid treatment which is much better for your skin compared to a physical exfoliant. I am going to alternate them with Pixi Glow Tonic so I don't run out so quickly.


I have not yet tried the Pixi Double Cleanse (I cannot believe I have shown such control) as I frankly have too many cleansers on the go. Once I run out of my Oskia Renaissance Cleanser, I will crack this baby open. It has a solid oil/ balm cleanser on the left side to remove makeup and a cream cleanser on the right to clean the skin. As it was created by CH herself, I can only imagine wonderful things! 


I gave the Zelens Power D Treatment Drops are whirl last night and really liked the feel of them. They are an oil/serum but apply more like a serum and don't leave as much of an oily residue on the skin like other facial treatments. They come with a handy little dropper and a heavy glass bottle (I love weighted packaging!). It is meant to target the deeper layers of skin to make it more resilient and help with skin's elasticity. Like with the eye cream, I will need to use this long term to see the effects but so far I like this product.

I also have used the Moisture Balancing Lotion by January Labs and really like the effects. Being a lotion, it is not as thick as other moisturisers and blends beautifully on the skin. I have oiliness in my t-zone so really like the light weight finish this product gives. I think this lotion would be particularly great for Summer time when I hate the feeling of anything thick on my skin. 

So if you find yourself ever on the Cult Beauty site and see there is a Box available, I would highly recommend it (particularly if curated by Caroline!). This box is an example of fantastic products offered at a great discount and I am so glad I broke my spending ban in order to buy it!
