I don’t know about you but I am bored and simply fed up of using endless products to get the oversold yet not-existent, thirst-quenching moisture. But, rejoice! I think I’ve found the solution to problem of all problems, and its called VOTARY. The business founded by British make-up artist Arabella Preston who believes H2O isn’t always good for your face. Preston created the line that is refreshingly made without mineral oils, petro-chemicals and unnecessary preservative. To boast even more, all products harness the natural power of plant oils and active ingredients.
Check out my top five products from VOTARY:
SUPER SEED CLEANSING OIL
Pumpkin, chia, broccoli and strawberry are just four of the twenty-two Super Seed oils in this cult formula. Perfect for delicate or sensitised skin, or for use during pregnancy or at times of hormonal flux, it’s fragrance-free and packed full of natural goodness. It balances and hydrates whilst deep-cleansing, leaving skin feeling clean, soft, soothed and fed.
Simply use 4 to 5 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand. Spread between your palms and then apply to your face. Start with your cheeks, then your nose, mouth and jawline and finally the area around your eyes. Splash your face with warm water and continue to massage the oil into your face and eyelashes.
