Cult Beauty Glow & Go Goody Bag 2023 Review
In this review, I want to share my thoughts about the Cult Beauty Glow & Go Goody Bag 2023. The Goody Bag contains a total of 14 products (worth £330), with 7 of them being full-size. Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at what it includes, along with my first impressions.
Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara (3.5g worth £9) – an all-in-one mascara that delivers a look of endless length, intense volume, and sky-high lift for extreme, dramatic lashes. It’s a nice mascara It provides volume, length, and curl to my lashes, and the best part is it never smudges, even after wearing it for 12-16 hours! It’s long-lasting and reliable. However, the only downside is that it dries out quite quickly. You have to replace it every almost every months because it starts to get more and more ‘cakey’ after that time.
Glow Recipe Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum (30ml worth £41) – a potent, visibly brightening serum that reduces the appearance of dark spots with five forms of vitamin C, guava, and tranexamic and ferulic acids for visibly glowing, even-toned skin. I’ve been eager to test this serum, and I’m really pleased that it’s part of the Goody Bag.
Innersense Hair Love Prep Spray (59ml worth £11) – a priming spray to provide optimal body, style retention, and thermal care. The formula is enriched with aloe juice, panthenol, linseed oil, hydrolyzed rice protein, amino acids; chamomile extract, eucalyptus extract, ginkgo biloba extract, honey extract, rice extract, baobab extract.
Sweed Lashes Satin Euphoria Eyeliner in Silver (worth £19) – an eye-catching sparkling eyeliner that delivers high metallic shine in the most luxurious silver pearl color. This eyeliner is really nice. The silver color is so bright, and it glides on easily.
Dr Dennis Gross Vitamin C and Lactic Oil Free Radiant Moisturiser (7ml worth £10) – an oil-free, noncomedogenic moisturizer, with the potency of a serum, that restores radiance and evens the look of skin tone and texture. I’m really looking forward to trying this treatment. I have a fondness for products with lactic acid and vitamin C, and I always include them in my weekly routine. Having both of these ingredients in this treatment makes it even more exciting for me.
Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment (8ml worth £18) – a multi-tasking treatment serum and mask to improve skin texture and elasticity. Unfortunately, I’ve found this serum too harsh for my skin. This isn’t the first time I’ve had a bad reaction to products with glycolic acid. That’s why I lean towards using products with lactic acid instead.
Natasha Denona Mini Retro Palette (worth £24) – a mini palette featuring five colors for romantic retro looks—perfect for a soft pastel look and everyday wear. This palette is undeniably gorgeous. It allows you to achieve both a simple “no makeup” look and a glamorous style. The best part is that it lasts all day, even without primer. Natasha Denona’s colors are absolutely stunning; they blend exceptionally well and have a lovely pigmentation.
Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil (12ml worth £22) – a lightweight facial oil with Damascus rose oil and vitamin C. It’s a nice nourishing oil that I already tried before. I prefer to apply a few drops of this oil to the palm of my hand and mix it with a hyaluronic acid serum for better results.
Tan-Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum (30ml worth £36.00) – a lightweight superfood self-tan serum enriched with hyaluronic acid. I have tried and purchased this product before, and I genuinely enjoy it. It spreads nicely on the face without any unpleasant scent and gives my face a healthy, natural-looking tan.
19/99 Beauty Precision Colour Pencil in Neutra (worth £19) – a multi-use makeup pencil that can be used on the eyes, lips, cheeks, or anywhere else on the face. I absolutely adore this pencil, the pink nude color I got is stunning; it glides on effortlessly and is easy to apply without any smudges. Additionally, it’s moisturizing, long-lasting, and pigmented.
REN Clean skin Care Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream (15ml worth £44) – a weightless hydrating eye cream formulated with 95 percent natural-origin ingredients proven to visibly reduce dark circles in as few as just seven days. The formula is enriched with oat oil, hyaluronic acid, elderberry extract, AQUAXYL™, and glycogen.
Odacite Vital Glow Serum Concentrate Wild Carrot (5ml worth £52) – a silky, lightweight facial oil rich in vitamins A, C, and E. This face oil is definitely one of my favorites. Here’s how I use it: I add 2 drops to a cream, mix it in the palm of my hand, and then apply it to my face. What’s great about it is that it doesn’t leave any oiliness; instead, it gives a lovely glow.
Rituel De Fille Colour Nectar Pigment Balm in Bee Sting (Deluxe Sample worth £14) – a buildable, multi-use pigment for lips, eyes and cheeks. I used it as a lip product, and though I really like the color, the formula doesn’t seem to last long on my lips.
Shani Darden Skin Care Lactic Acid Exfoliating Treatment (5ml worth £13) – a powerful, yet gentle, lactic acid 9% (AHA) serum that gently exfoliates to visibly even tone, refine, and improve clarity of blemish-prone skin. I have already tried this serum, and I love how light it is. It quickly absorbs into my skin, leaving it looking brighter and more even toned, which is something I really appreciate.
