A Guide To The Best Cult Luxe Beauty Products
We dug up some classic beauty products and revamped cult favourites.

When it comes to beauty purchases the next time around, here are a few products you should consider investing in:

It's no secret that some beauty favourites have been around for decades and remain as popular and beloved today as they were then. We love beauty here at Casper, and we're just as excited about new innovative brands as we are about the famous ones our mums and grandmothers used.

There's a reason they've been around for decades. Their trusted formulas deliver results, and let's face it, we all love a good result!

If you're wondering what Cult beauty product to buy, here's your guide.



La Prairie Skin Caviar Night-time Oil

Enjoy the line-smoothing power of caviar while you sleep and throughout your day. A Swiss caviar incarnation, Caviar Retinol harnesses the line-smoothing power of caviar science, combining retinol derived from caviar with caviar lipids.


The signature cobalt blue jar holds the delicate and potent formulation. For a truly indulgent experience, the formula is generous and silky. The elusive strength of caviar lasts beyond the night, reducing lines and wrinkles, firming the skin, and sealing in moisture.

Benefits:


  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Smooths skin visibly.
  • Enhances the appearance of firmness and elasticity.
  • Seals in moisture and actives of the preceding ritual.
  • Strengthens skin's own barrier function, helping to prevent water loss.
  • Hydrates skin and leaves it appearing plumped.


La Mer Moisturizing Cream

When it comes to luxury brands, La Mer is the undisputed King.


It's called Crème de la Mer, aka cream of the sea, and it's a super-expensive face cream. It was only natural that the creator named the brand after the sea since the ocean played a crucial role in its development. 

California-based German physicist Max Huber developed one of the world's most sort out beauty products. He became particularly interested in skincare products after burning his face in a lab accident and couldn't find anything to heal and nourish his skin then.

Having lived near the shore, Huber noticed that seaweed, specifically giant kelp, had regenerative properties. His goal was to harness these fast-growing abilities to help his face heal scar-free, so he shifted to full-time work on it. As with the seaweed, all his efforts went into creating a cream that would rejuvenate his skin.

La Mer's original moisturiser. With this luxuriously rich cream, skin is hydrated for a long time, helping to soothe dryness and repair the skin's protective barrier. Skin immediately feels firmer, soft-to-the-touch, supple and smooth. Reduces lines, redness, and irritation associated with ageing. The perfect moisturiser for dry skin and is also suitable for sensitive skin.

Infused with cell-renewing Miracle Broth, this ultra-rich cream immerses skin in an instant and all-day moisture, helping reduce dryness. This product lends your skin a natural radiance and vitality by visibly soothing sensitivity signs such as redness and irritation and repairing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multy Recovery Serum.

New Fast Repair and Youth-Generating Power. Experience the next generation of Estée Lauders award-winning product Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multy Recovery serum.

It is by far the most comprehensive Advanced Night Repair serum available to date due to its revolutionary formula that's patented until 2033. Now with Chronolux Power Signal Technology, this deep-and fast-penetrating serum reduces the look of multiple signs of ageing caused by the environmental stressors and the complexities of modern life. 

As a result, the skin appears smoother and less lined, more radiant and with an even tone, younger and less prone to wrinkles.


Chanel N°5 Fragrance


One of the most enduring perfumes of all time. It's no surprise this is the best Chanel perfume on our list - no apologies. 100 years after its launch, N°5 has retained its impact due to an unusual overload of aldehydic notes. With its supremely balanced composition of soapy aldehydes, sophisticated florals, and long-lasting dry down, this perfume should satisfy those who want to know which perfume lasts the longest. 


Chanel N°5 takes a bit of maturity to fully understand, which makes it so appealing. In spite of its unique smell, it is instantly recognisable, and yet it never feels boring or overly familiar. In my teens, I was misguided and found N°5 to be a bit much, needless to say, I've come to my senses. 



SK-II Facial Treatment Essence


SK-II's signature product, the much-loved and most awarded bestseller, Facial Treatment Essence has over 90% Piteraa, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago that remains unchanged. Its irreplaceable formula gently exfoliates the face and helps moderate the skin surface renewal cycle.


In just 14 days, your skin's 5 dimensions are visibly transformed:

  • Age spots are less visible.
  • The appearance of wrinkles is reduced.
  • Skin texture is more refined.
  • Firmness is improved.
  • Radiance is beautifully elevated.


Skin becomes breathtakingly crystal clear.


CHANEL Rouge Allure L'extrait lipstick

The ROUGE ALLURE L’EXTRAIT is a high-Intensity lipstick bursting with moisturisers and intense colour pigment giving your lips a little extra drama.  It’s cult classic’s comfortable, and protective formula is thanks to the combined effects of ume flower extract and plant waxes.

This Augustinus Bader beauty product is a cult favourite, with the brand passionate about delivering results, The Augustinus Bader eye cream is an all-in-one innovation that dramatically diminishes the visible signs of aging, damage, and stress - A complete renewal of the delicate eye area.

If you are not going anywhere this year, the Jet Lag mask can be a truly life savour during the last wintery days and to keep your skin protected and hydrated against freezing wind.


ORIBE Gold Lust Transformative Mask

For those of you who haven’t tried Oribe products yet, seriously start with this one!


The Gold Lust Transformative Masque is worth a splurge, smells divine, and leaves your tired stressed out locks feeling like silk, honestly as a former hairdresser I can recommend a plethora of fabulous products, however there’s nothing like Gold Lust. 

This truly modern remedy penetrates to rebuild each fiber with curative white tea, baobob and jasmine extracts and our bio-restorative complex, improving elasticity and fortifying hair to rediscover its softness, body and inner brilliance. Restore overworked hair to its prime with each dose.


Weleda skin Food


Victoria Beckham swears by this product, a summer, winter or any time of the year is the perfect time to start using the Skinfood from Weleda.

The  powerful rich formula works wonders on your body, leaving you skin super nourished and supple giving 'baby skin' a whole new meaning! It's the ideal product for smoothing dry-rough skin patches and hard-working hands. Plus it smells so lush, thanks to its unique scent of sweet orange, aromatic lavender and warm vanilla notes. We recommend to buy them in bulk as Skinfood is quiet often out of stock everywhere, so if you see a green tube around, hurry and stock up. 



Embryolisse Leit- Creme Concentre


Every great make up artist's bag has the Lait-Crème Concentré from Embryolisse as part of their tool kit, which is probably a good enough reason to have this multi-purpose French classic  at home. A versatile beauty product that can be used as a moisturizer, makeup primer, or even as a leave-on mask. You'd be surprised to learn that The Lait-Crème Concentré deserves a lot of credit for supermodel covers. Exactly, our French friends know beauty, and we have yet to find anything we don't like about their products.
