There’s a reason why certain products reach cult status and are so popular. Over the past few years, there’s some products I just can’t live without. I’ve tried lots of things people swear by, but these five cult skin and body care products are the ones I’ve found are 100% worth the hype. Keep reading to find out why…

If you’ve used a Molton Brown shower gel before, you’ll know just how good they are (and 100% worth the high price point, as far as I’m concerned!) I’ve tried a few of the fragrances, and each one is strong enough to linger on your skin after you’ve got out of the shower. They lather really well, so you only need a small amount each time, making them last a lot longer than cheaper gels. They also sell gift sets, which are great for trying out each scent to find out which one suits you best.
Body butters are a life saver when your skin is feeling dry or dehydrated. The Body Shop truly do the best body butters on the market, and I find them really easy to work into my skin to keep it feeling soft and supple all year round. A 200ml tub is just £16, and well worth it because it lasts a good few months, depending on how frequently you use it!
My skin is really picky when it comes to cleansers, but it LOVES the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish! This creamy cleanser keeps my skin balanced and clear, without leaving it feeling tight or stripped after I’ve used it. A tube of this typically lasts me a month, with use morning and evening, and at just over £15 is definitely an affordable but effective option.
I had heard a couple of people rave about the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant before I tried it myself. You mix the powder with a small amount of water to make it into a paste that can then be worked into your skin for a gentle exfoliation. My skin really loves this stuff, so I can see what it’s cult! The fact that it’s a dry powder also makes it a great travel-friendly skincare option. I don’t use mine daily, but use it 2-3 times a week to keep my complexion fresh and clear.
I’ve been using the Pixi Glow Tonic for years now, and I love how gentle but effective it is on my skin! It’s a great way to get into using acids on your skin, and using it once a day makes a real difference to how bright and luminous my complexion is. To use it, all you have to do is saturate a cotton wool pad in it and wipe it across your skin. I love the slight tingle it gives, and at £18 for 250ml it’s an affordable option.
