Meet Cult of Reason Skincare. Skin’s new best friend.


Cult of Reason skincare cuts through the noise and hype of the skincare world to give people products that are uncomplicated and effective – no deciphering labels or ten-step routines. Cult of Reason is clean, simple and straightforward, with ingredients that are intentional and readable. Most importantly, they actually work. Plus, the products are gender-affirmative because skin is skin.


This esthetician-formulated line was born out of a love of the chemistry of skincare and a desire to create a line that challenges the status quo. With carefully selected suppliers, high quality ingredients and a true understanding of how skin works, this streamlined product line is transparent and thoughtfully crafted. Cult of Reason makes loving your skin easy.


An esthetician with 20 years of experience, Angela Hugghins was born for the skincare world. Even as a child, she was concocting face masks and giving makeup tips. Her grandfathers would wait patiently as the 6-year-old spruced up their nails and hair, while giving them (totally made up) beauty information. In 2016, after 15 years working in local salons, she opened her own brow and facial studio, Monarch Brow and Facials in Carrboro, North Carolina. This thoughtful, refined skincare line is the manifestation of this long-held passion.
