Really excited to share VOTARY with you! Such a fantastic skincare brand. Created by British make-up artist Arabella Preston, her luxurious products harness the natural power of plant oils and active ingredients. The formulations are all made in the UK and blended personally by Arabella. They consist of the finest natural ingredients and are suitable for all skin types.
Here is a selection of products I’m currently trying:
The Super Seed Cleansing Oil is specifically blended for skin which is sensitive, hormonal or showing signs of ageing. It’s soothing, balancing, deeply hydrating and 100% natural, containing 21 Super Seed plant oils.
It works like other cleansing oils in that it melts away makeup, but this one comes with a cotton facecloth which you soak in hand-hot water, then wring out and place over the face to allow the steam to penetrate the pores for a deep clean. Then gently wipe oil and makeup away.
The Intense Night Oil is an overnight treatment for skin that combines powerful natural oils with retinoid (which encourages the skin’s natural turnover of cells) to smooth skin texture and skin tone – giving you younger and plumper looking skin. Yes please!
The Super Seed Nutritional Supplement is like an internal moisturiser. Made from a blend of 10 select virgin cold-pressed seed oils, including organic hemp, borage and chia. It’s rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, that have been carefully balanced to support beautiful skin, glossy hair and strong nails.
Recommended amount is 1-2 teaspoons a day which can be added to food. Best in smoothies, drizzled over fruit and yoghurt or alternatively added to salad dressings.
Of course one of the best ways to keep skin looking fresh and healthy is a good night’s sleep. This aromatherapy Pillow Spray contains Lavender and Chamomile to calm the mind and help you drift off. Compared to other pillow sprays I’ve tried this one far outshines them— it smells absolutely divine.
As always, packaging is so important to me! So let’s not overlook the beautiful branding which in my opinion marries luxe, natural and hand-crafted perfectly.
