Lily and I have been sitting on this news for months, but we can finally announce that we’ve collaborated with one of our favourite beauty retailers, Cult Beauty to create a limited edition The Cult Beauty Box by Anna and Lily that’s crammed full of some of our all-time top products from the skincare, haircare and makeup worlds. SQUEAL! You already know that we’re regular customers of the site and have been for years so this is a bit of a dream collaboration for us both. We’ve been involved in every step from selecting the products inside (there’s even miniatures involved – DOUBLE SQUEAL) to the design of the box (marble and gold – obvs), so we can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here’s what you need to know…
The box contains seven products, five full-size items and two travel-size and will retail for £85 – which means you’re getting a 43% saving. Mad, I know! To be the first to hear about the launch of the box, sign up to the waitlist here. Those signed up will receive an email from midday on Friday 29th April that contains the link you need to purchase the box. Simples.
So what’s inside? Well our first pick was obviously the OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel. How could this not be in there? Lily and I both use this AM and PM as our cleanser and have done for years. In fact I think I’m on my seventh or eight bottle of the stuff. It’s a great cleanser for all skin types and all seasons. Another skincare fave is the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist. I’ve almost used a whole bottle of this up as it’s my go-to during the day when I’m feeling a bit like a raisin complexion-wise. Not only is this a good hydrating mist that can be used before or after makeup, it’s a nice spritz to use as a toning step too.
Now let’s talk about the cutest miniature ever – a 15ml bottle of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil (that’s half the size of the full-size bottle). Isn’t it the cutest? I like to mix it up with my oils, but Luna is great if I’m ever I’m feeling particularly withered because it contains an advanced retinol complex that helps with signs of ageing. On puffy days though I reach for the Yu Ling Jade Facial Roller. I’ve had the miniature version for years and even though it makes Mark chuckle whenever I get it out and massage my face with it, I find that it works wonders on my bloated eyes.
Right onto makeup. You know I love the Tom Ford Eyeliner, but Lily turned me on to the Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black and you know what it’s a fab alternative. It doesn’t budge, even with my watery eyes and the brush is fine enough to be precise, but thick enough that it won’t take you four hours to build up a feline flick. The second travel-size in the box comes in the form of the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter; a glow-inducing primer that I can’t get enough of. In fact I’m so excited to have this in travel-friendly form as it’s my go-to primer right now. It’s not greasy, yet gives this amazing sheen to the complexion.
The final product in the box is The Wet Brush. I was a TangleTeezer gal through and through until Lily convinced me to give The Wet Brush a go and now I’m a convert. It gets through wet, matted hair like no other and doesn’t leave my hand cramping up or tears coming out of my eyes. It’s the only hairbrush that I use these days.
So that’s it! If you’d like to get your hands on a box then remember to sign up here and keep your eyes peeled in your inbox from midday on the 29th April. Thanks again for all the support you lot. BIG LOVE!
