Cult Beauty Tried And Trusted Edit 2023 Review
For today’s review, I want to talk about Cult Beauty The Tried And Trusted Edit 2023. This edit features a total of seven products (worth £184), with four of them being full-size. As anticipated, the box sold out on the very day of its release. I’ve recently received mine and am ready to share my first impressions.
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector (100ml worth £28.00) – a pre-shampoo hair treatment infused with patented Olaplex Bond Building technology, created to repair and strengthen hair. This product is a weekly essential for my blonde hair, and it absolutely loves the treatment. It’s my go-to product that makes my hair look healthier, leaving it soft and manageable. I’m a major Olaplex fan!
Larry King Haircare My Nanna’s Mousse (150ml worth £22.00) – a mousse that has been created to prep hair for blow drying. It helps hair to appear fuller, with a plumping and thickening effect. I put the mousse on damp hair around my crown. The mousse spreads nicely without being sticky or heavy. Then, I blow dry it. Afterward, my hair looks voluminous, bouncy, and shiny. It gives good volume, though not the strongest hold.
Clé de Peau Beauté Correcting Cream Veil (37ml worth £55.00) – a multi-benefit makeup primer with SPF that smooths imperfections and primes skin for a long-lasting foundation finish. This cream is quite light and provides minimal coverage. It gives a subtle glow to the skin and has a delightful scent. However, it may not be suitable for everyone due to its slight white cast
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel (Pack of 3) – fast-acting two-step AHA/BHA peel pads that combine five acids and 12 antioxidants to enhance radiance, smooth fine lines, refine pores, and improve tone and texture. It has been a staple of my skincare for years, and I love it. It makes my skin smooth and radiant, controls blemishes and dark spots, and makes my pores look visibly smaller.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (75ml worth £21.00) – a fast-absorbing body cream with a smoothing formula that adds a hint of shimmer to the skin. This is definitely isn’t the most nourishing body cream I’ve used, but it’s a nice body cream. And honestly, I’m not a big fan of its scent.
Saie Dew Blush in ‘Spicy’ (worth £20.00) – a hydrating gel blush with a creamy, blendable formula that gives skin a healthy flush of seamless colour. This liquid blush is wonderful! The texture is so creamy and blends out really nicely. You don’t need much of it as a little goes a long way. However, I’m not sure the shade suits my skin tone well; it appears too dark for me. Nevertheless, I love the formula so much that I’m already considering getting it in several other shades, like Peachy and Rosy, which look great.
Glow Recipe Strawberry Smooth BHA+AHA Salicylic Serum (30ml worth £37.97) – a powerful yet soothing AHA and BHA acid serum that gently smooths, addresses the appearance of breakouts, and helps clear blemish-prone skin, and visibly refines pores for clear, hydrated skin. I love this serum, its light texture absorbs quickly into my skin without any stickiness. I’ve noticed my skin feels smoother and looks better when I use it regularly. It also seems to help with oil control and pore health.
