Mixing up your Cult Beauty Box


I've had quite a few comments/questions from people that purchased the current Cult Beauty Box about how to best mix/match the contents so please forgive a quick post addressed primarily to them. 
(Regular service and LOADS of exciting announcements coming. :) EEK)

AM Cleanse:
You can use either Pixi, Tata or MV Organics as your morning cleanse - all skin types, no issues.
If you want to you can exfoliate with OSKIA as well.  I would cleanse first then exfoliate, then acid. (Not with these DG pads - your normal 'acid' toners.)
Then you spritz with May. 
For sensitive/reddened/annoyed skins you will get the most benefit from using MV Organics for the AM cleanse until it subsides a little. Once you notice a difference you can add in Tata if you want to.


PM Cleansing:
This is where you can really go to town and mix it up.

Please note: these are suggestions - if you are using the products in a different way and it's working for you, that's brilliant. As always, do what works for you.

Dry skins:
  • 1st Cleanse - Sonya Dakar on eyes if wearing heavy makeup, then Pixi or Tata
  • 2nd Cleanse - Tata or MV Organics
  • Exfoliate if you want to with OSKIA
  • Pads - twice a week - alternate with your normal acids
  • Spritz with May

Dehydrated skins:

For three days:
  • Use Sonya on eyes if applicable, then double cleanse with Tata
  • Pads - twice a week - otherwise alternate with your normal acids
  • Spritz liberally - Jasmine Garden is massively hydrating and wonderful under your serums and moisturisers
On day four:
  • Sonya if needed, then either Pixi or Tata for makeup/SPF removal
  • Exfoliate with OSKIA
  • Follow with one of the Dennis Gross pads
  • Spritz with May
  • Serum etc....
Continue using any of the products after day four.


Sensitive/Rosacea skins:

  • 1st Cleanse - Sonya/Tata
  • 2nd Cleanse - MV Organics
  • Dennis Gross Pads twice a week are fine on sensitive skins. The products aren't heavily acidic, they're anti-ageing.
  • Spritz liberally with Jasmine Garden - and keep it close by throughout the day

Once skin feels calmer, introduce Pixi as a 1st Cleanse on a rotating basis with the others.


Oily/Combination Skins:

All of the cleansers can be used in the ways above on oily/combination skins. The only exception is Pixi, if you have open, active acne, it will possibly be aggravated trying to remove with the cloths. You'll knock heads off and cause bleeding if you're too rough, same as with any oilier balm.
If you have spots that haven't come to a head or are past their 'angry' stage, you're good to go.


I hope that helps, but feel free to leave any comments below and I'll try and get back to you in a speedy fashion.


And as an aside, and in answer to your questions, yes Cult Beauty have their Goodie Bag promotion on at the moment and yes the Box is included in the promotion. The Goodie Bag is added automatically into your basket at checkout.

  3. The box has converted me, before I tended to spend my ££ on the serums and treatments but not any longer. I love the cleansers esp Tata.
    My query, if I use the pads twice a week can I still use Liquid Gold at some other time during the week? Also should I use Good Genes on a different day than the pads?

  4. Hi, ordered after a 15% birthday discount AND the free goody bag....for a grand total of 123 pounds. Total no brainier!! Thanks
    Do have one question - is the pixi cleansing balm 60 or 90 ml? CB and CH websites list it as full size 6o ml, but full size on pixi website is 90 ml.

    2. I'm eagerly awaiting my box (anyone in the states, Texas specifically, get their box yet? I know everywhere is different, I'M JUST SO EXCITED!). Trying to get a rounded amount in my Cult Beauty cart to get the freebies, too. When do you get a birthday discount code, mine is the 15th, should i wait the 6 days for the savings? I need to replenish acids, want to finally try Alpha H, and EH balm, and need a clarifying serum, too. Any suggestions or advice about time, savings, acids, or serums? Lol, loaded reply, i know. Thanks in advance to anyone with ideas!

  5. Feeling frustrated. Yesterday I double cleansed with Tata followed with Oakia exfoliate my usual Perricone serum and a sprit of May Lindstrom. I was at home all day with no make up. By bedtime my face was broken out and splotchy. I typically have dehydrated red-prone skin but this regimen really aggravated my skin. Any thoughts. I'm disappointed since I'm so invested now.

    1. I have a similar sort of skin. Although my box hasn't arrived yet and I haven't tried the products, I would suggest just using one new product a time. Then you can see how your skin reacts to it. I am hoping it's not the Oskia. My skin doesn't like manual exfoliants but really want to try it.

  6. Thank you for this article, I think it's a really nice compliment to the box and the video you did on the box. I'm not sure if you've already done this with Cult, but I would love to see a CH box focused on masks...just an idea.

  8. Hi--can you review philosophy C Booster Powder ? If it works, what it does, when to use it. Thanks!

  9. Thank you! I just received my box this morning. The postal service took its own sweet time delivering it. I'm most excited about the Tata cleanser which I was about to buy before you announced the box. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Goop products.

  10. I ordered mine the other day and got the goodie bag too - yay! I am in New Zealand so hoping the box sneaks through Customs without having to pay duty. Has anyone else in NZ had to pay duty for their box?

  11. Caroline, have you tried the Fresh Seaberry Skin Nutrition Cleansing Oil? I'm debating between that one and the Tatcha Cleansing Oil.

  12. Hi Caroline.

    I think there's an error in your copy.

    Do you mean spritz with *May*?

  13. Received my box yesterday, to squeals of delight. All the products are gorgeous but my unexpected favorite is the Oskia. What an amazing product. Thank you!

    Sadly, I had to pay duty.

  14. Am loving this mix of products - the Jasmine Garden smells absolutely gorgeous and the Oskia exfoliator is brilliant .. leaves your skin so clean and ready to soak up the serums! .. Well .... I love all of the products so thanks, Caroline, for introducing us to such great brands. (I've also joined the In My Kit Facebook group following your post about IMATs .. which is a whole new world of fun and controversy!)

    1. Same. I was too keen and ordered the box before the goody bag came out.
      My inner bargain hunter is crying.
