Cult Beauty expert and A-list hair stylist James Corbett flew in from NYC to share his expertise with our customers at the Cult Beauty pop-up shop at Selfridges recently. And after testing out some of our newest brands on some very willing guinea pigs, he now has a new list of favourite cult products! Here James explains what he’s currently loving and why…
“Rahua finishing treatment. A tiny bit goes a long way. A must for distressed locks. The instructions say to leave in but I rinse it out so as not to weigh down locks, and hair is still amazingly hydrated & easier to comb.
Tara Smith Big Baby shampoo. It is delicate but amazingly efficient in cleaning without stripping. Especially amazing since it contains no Sodium Laurel Sulfate. Safe for color and keratin treatments!
De Mamiel Winter Face Oil. I am firm believer in oil for the skin. Smell it as you put it on and it heals your soul as well as your face.
Escentric Molecule’s Molecule 01 fragrance. Subtle yet seductive, this fragrance will have people whispering sweet nothings in your ear. People are always in love with this scent when I wear it and it won’t overpower or linger 5 minutes after you have left the room.
RMS Lip & Skin Balm. In the cold winter months or dry summer beach days my pucker can get dry, cracked and chapped, unless I use RMS! Not only is the entire make-up line fantastic and I use it on all of my clients, but the Lip & Skin Balm keeps my lips moist and juicy even in the harshest of weather conditions. Your loved one will be glad you are using Lip & Skin too when you have a pleasing pout.
Acca Kappa brushes in flat boar bristle. I am a firm believer in the old wives’ tale of brushing your hair 100 times at night, the reason being brushing stimulates the scalp, increasing healthy hair growth and exfoliating the scalp. The sebum or oil your scalp produces is Mother Nature’s conditioner. By brushing in a semi-circular motion from the scalp down the ends it will move the oil from your scalp down your hair shaft.”
