May Beauty Haul

Are you the type of person that’s easily tempted to place an order when you see Cult Beauty has free international shipping? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I’m just as Guilty! Am I right in saying that most of you only do so because the brands they offer aren’t easily accessible in South Africa? Also if you purchase directly then you cut out the middle man, right? Right! Lol.

Cult Beauty is an e-commerce site based in the UK, that curates and sells specific star products rather than whole brand ranges. They also run a “brand of the month” monthly promotion which means free shipping on that brand for the whole month.

I keep my order below R500 to avoid customs and duties and I’ve been lucky thus far because I haven’t been charged customs for any low-value orders. There are some people who weren’t as fortunate and were charged customs and duty. So just know that this can happen.

Today I share my May Beauty Haul and most of these items are products I’ve wanted to try for some time based on reviews I’ve read.



1. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

2. The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Solution 10%

3. The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution



Those of you who don’t want to risk purchasing from Cult beauty because of customs and packages possibly being detained now have the option to purchase from online stores such as Fashionpoliceonline. I’ve been purchasing from this store for a few years and can vouch for their services as well as the quality of their products. Paula sells 100% authentic international branded makeup and her prices are really competitive.

1. Colourpop single pressed glitter in hungry ghost
2. Sephora sleeping face masks
  • Coconut water
  • Aloe

3. Korean Bubble Face Mask Sheet – Retinol


How many of you get really excited for some newness? Doesn’t matter how small the package lol? Newness is newness #justsaying

I’m eager to try out the new The Ordinary products and the Sephora sleeping masks sound really interesting. Also, the Colourpop pressed glitter is just too beautiful. I love me some glittery goodness. Less bitter, more glitter, wouldn’t you agree?

Let me know what you’ve recently purchased?

    I’m eager to know what that colourpop sachet is? Please make a video when you apply it.
    I also really need to try The Ordinary products – that toner sounds perfect for winter.

      It’s a pressed glitter babe and just sooo gorgeous. I’m gonna tag you once I have this glittery goodness on my lids. You’re gonna die haha. You won’t regret trying some of The Ordinary skincare, let me know if you need any guidance and I’ll try my best to help.

    Can i ask why you bought your ordinary products from cult when fahionpolice stocks them? I want to order from them and need to know if itโ€™s fine

    • Yolanda Jeftha

      Hey love. I only order from cult when they have free shipping. It works out a little cheaper because I can get 4-6 products for under R500.

      Fashion police have quite a few in stock and at great prices as well. So you wont go wrong
