Want to get to know these must-have products without downloading – or spiralling down – the app, we’ve created a round-up of the ones shop here at Cult Beauty and you can try out for yourself and inevitably pledge your allegiance…

Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Water Refill Pouch

Created by world leading tan expert and the king of faux glow – Jules Von Hep, Isle of Paradise is here to bring an end to your fake tan faux pas. After a successful career helping red carpet and fashion week models achieve that covetable and (previously unattainable) sun-kissed glow, Von Hep decided to combine his technique of applying colour-correcting make up post tan and create Isle of Paradise. This product isn’t just eco-friendly, but the formula mimics the same technique that spray tan technicians use – simply spritz, buff and glow!

Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

Working to cover blemishes while acting as a physical barrier against damaging environmental aggressors, this formula promises more than just a pretty face. Changing from muted green to a subtle, beige tint, the cream cushions your complexion with an array of ultra-nourishing ingredients. Formulated with a centella asiatica (tiger grass) complex to protect, extracts of resurrection plants (houttuynia cordata and yarrow) to strengthen, and raspberry leaf extract to obscure inflammation, it’s also infused with sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium to boost moisture and lessen the signs of fatigue, while a blend of minerals and panthenol soothes and hydrates. With a list like that, it’s safe to say we’re beyond obsessed.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops

Want to get ultra-dewy, glass skin in just a few steps? TikTok users shared a hack which involved applying a generous amount of this niacinamide-loaded, serum-like formula onto skin post-cleansing. Helping to reduce inflammation and smooth texture, this hack had us thinking users were wearing a full-face of soft-focus highlighter.

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

It may look like something straight out of a horror film – The (TikTok) Ratatouille Horror Picture Show anyone? – but this blood-hued treatment comprises of AHAs (glycolic and lactic) to exfoliate, BHAs (salicylic) to diminish breakouts and hyaluronic acid to hydrate. After a few uses you’ll notice a smoother, veil of radiance that you’ll adore.

NYX Professional Makeup Shine Loud High Pigment Long Lasting Lip Shine Lip Gloss

Imagine a high-shine gloss with colour that actually doesn’t transfer… We’ve heard tales of such a miracle but the real thing is hard to come by and that’s why the double-ended NYX Professional Makeup’s Shine Loud High Pigment Long Lasting Lip Shine Lip Gloss blew up on TikTok. The two-step technology is made up of a high-pigment base coat that feels beautifully soft thanks to an infusion of conditioning oils such as macadamia, jojoba and passion fruit seed oils. After waiting 90 seconds for the base to dry, follow it up with the hyper-reflective top coat that resists transference, fading and bleeding. You need to see it to believe it…
