Does Cult Beauty have free returns?

Yes, you can return products for free within the UK provided you meet the terms and conditions for returns. These are that products are returned unopened and in a saleable condition with hygiene seals intact. You have to return them within 30 days of receipt and can create a return via an online portal and either post it back with select carriers or visit a drop-off point. Outside of the UK, you will need to pay the cost of delivery in order to get a refund. 

What are Cult Beauty known for?

 The thing that sets cult beauty apart from most other beauty retailers is its focus on emerging brands and bringing indie products to the market before anyone else. This means Cult Beauty is known to be the place where beauty fans can go to find products they won’t find anywhere else. The site also has an advice-led approach, so as well as listing what’s in products and technical information, the team at Cult write detailed descriptions of each product, offering an editorial feel and trusted tips on whether it might be right for you.

Do Lookfantastic own Cult Beauty?

Not quite! Lookfantastic and Cult Beauty are both owned by the same parent company, The Hut Group (THC) an E-commerce company that acquired Cult Beauty in 2021 in a deal reportedly worth £275 million. Describing itself as an “end-to-end tech platform” THC owns a number of beauty brands and platforms including Glossybox and Dermstore as well as nutrition, entertainment and luxury goods companies.

 What to buy from Cult Beauty

One of the best things about Cult Beauty is the huge array of new-to-market brands and buys they stock, so the first thing to do on any visit to the site is hit the New & Trending tab. This section houses emerging indie brands and Cult Beauty exclusives as well as previously sold-out products that have just come back into stock. Our pick of the exclusives includes Californian vegan makeup line Tower 28, whose cream blush is as cult as they come, and Sundae, an Instagram-friendly line of body cleansing mousses that look like cans of whipped cream.

Skincare is a particularly strong point of Cult Beauty’s range and we can’t get enough of the gentle skincare acid-infused Votary Daily Apple Toner, or ultra gentle sensitive skin brand Pai (try the Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil - your skin will thank you) In fragrance, Cult Beauty is the place to pick up NYC’s coolest unisex fragrance brand, DS & Durga. Snap up Debaser EDP, a rock n’ roll-inspired blend of citrus, sticky fig and a mossy, woody base – we guarantee the compliments will fly in.

About Cult Beauty

Cult Beauty is the e-tailer beauty obsessives turn to when looking for hot new brands, under-the-radar buys, and, above all else, products that really work. It was founded in 2008 by Alexia Inge and Jessica Moore, skincare aficionados who had become frustrated with the oversaturation (as well as over-promise and under-deliver culture) of the beauty industry. Cult Beauty aims to be an antidote to that – only stocking genuinely innovative and effective products, from buzzy Korean skincare to the best hair masks by hard-to-find brands. The site lists every product's full ingredient list for transparency as well as always giving a reason, ‘why it’s Cult’ - so you know everything stocked has earned its place. Cult Beauty has become known for its exclusives – in particular offering UK customers the chance to buy the best skincare products and makeup trends from hyped US brands, and now has a global presence, shipping to over 170 counties worldwide.
