If you’re reading this, the chances of your wellness & beauty product stash being overwhelming are probably high. We get it, there’s something fun about scrolling through TikTok or Instagram and purchasing the next “miracle” product – wrinkle-free in 1 week? Give us 3! The power of marketing is something else, isn’t it?
But times are changing and we as consumers are starting to question…everything. Which is amazing! Who made this? Where did it actually come from? What does this insane skincare vocabulary mean to non-dermatologists like ourselves? Our trust levels with brands shot way down during the pandemic. Forbes even published an article stating that consumers now hold brands to a much higher standard since the coronavirus, because who and what we trust has shifted.
Through social media, we now get the opportunity to speak directly to brands, while also getting an inside look BTS… and honestly, we’re here for it. Transparency is going to be key moving forward for both personal brands and companies.
With all of this being said, we wanted to curate a list of wellness products that have been chosen specifically by the Cacti team. We’re self-admittedly very experienced in product testing, and these are our holy grail products.
Let’s get to it!
