When we’re not enjoying the ASMR of our {overnight masks} gliding over our skin or the crackling effect of the match as we light our feel-good {candles}, where do you teleport to once you hit play on that playlist? Accompanying us almost every morning commute while we rev up for the day ahead and helping us wind down in the evening with soothing sounds, music governs so many of our moods. But here’s where magic really happens — pair your spa-like, beauty rituals with the track you have stuck on loop and get in sync with the good vibes. No Bluetooth needed…

Think: Spotify Wrapped but make it… 🌟self care🌟. To scent the scene after a long day of exploring the city, Beth, our resident Senior Copywriter, strikes the perfect match with Nomad Noé’s {Dreamer in London Candle} for the ultimate cosy vibes. Faintly flickering to the sombre sounds of Bon Iver playing in the background almost impressively on-beat, this hand-poured blend of apricot and coconut waxes fused with comforting vanilla notes stretches waves of relaxation from the front room to the kitchen. Forget Emily in Paris, we want to live vicariously through Beth in London!A lover of noughties pop, Natalie, our Junior Copywriter, switches tempo in preparation for some quality face time. Swapping out Taylor Swift for a classical mix on Spotify, she enjoys a Beethoven-led {skin care} regime. Starting on a high note with FARMACY {Green Clean Makeup Melting Balm}, this innovative, balm-to-oil blend of papaya extract, sunflower and ginger root oils work harmoniously together to gently exfoliate, brighten and smooth your skin from the very first step. Like a symphony for your skin, this melodious melting balm sets the tone for the rest of your routine.Channelling R&B realness with SZA’s second studio album on full blast — Kill Bill to be specific — Nasreen our Junior Copywriter gives her hair some much-needed TLC with Oribe’s {Gold Lust Transformative Masque}. Targeting dryness with a restorative complex of baobab, white tea and jasmine extracts blended with nourishing jojoba esters, this bounce-reviving masque recovers long-lost lustre in no time at all.And how do I set the mood? I may be somewhat of a vocalist on her third sold out world tour, reaching falsetto notes before the crowd of me, myself and I — a worthy audience, I’ll add. Lathering up in the shower with my Molton Brown {Rose Dunes Bath & Shower Gel} and harmonising to Sideways by Cleo Sol is truly one of my favourite pastimes. There’s something quite hypnotic, soothing and tranquil about the fresh floral fragrance wafting through the steamy air until it hits the sound waves of Cleo’s soulful voice.

Precious is a Midweight Copywriter at Cult Beauty. Sticking her teeth into all things make up and skin care, Precious is always on the hunt for products that work perfectly together (while remaining loyal to her can’t-do-without staples). Like most beauty devotees, Precious doesn’t go a day without her trusted SPF 50+ and is a self-proclaimed fragrance-phile. Away from the vanity mirror, Precious can be found sat with a good book (probably by her favourite author, Toni Morrison) or nurturing her nostalgia with a quality animated film – namely Shrek.
