The February Box features two products from the cult favorite British brand Votary (Total Retail Value: $212): Super Seed Facial Oil ($110) and Super Seed Nutrient Cream ($102).

About Votary,

Votary began at the kitchen table of makeup artist, Arabella Preston.  Arabella started blending pure plant oils to cleanse her own skin, and to prep the skin of her high profile clients.  Thrilled by the transformative power of the cleansing and facial oils she made, she teamed up with friend, former colleague and serial entrepreneur Charlotte Semler to create Votary.

Arabella and Charlotte are passionate about the power of natural, plant based skincare to give you healthy, dewy skin whatever your age.

Beautiful skin begins with properly clean skin, which is why the Votary cleansing routine is at the heart of everything Votary makes.

Votary cleansing oils and 100% pure cotton face cloths are simply the best way to clean and care for your face. It’s where great skin begins.

Every product in the Votary range is made from pure plant oils and botanical actives. Whatever your skin type, there’s a Votary product that will work for you.

Arabella has created specialist products for eyes and lips, products which work overnight to transform your skin while you sleep, and products which work brilliantly to address different life stage issues like adolescence, pregnancy and menopause.

All of the Votary range is crammed with nourishing ingredients and loaded with goodness.
The Votary range now spans cleansing oils, facial oils, deeply nourishing creams and powerful serums to give you healthy, happy, glowing skin.
Votary Super Seed Facial Oil ($110): This gorgeous fragrance-free eco-luxe facial oil, which is deeply nourishing, hydrating and calming, is made from a lovely blend of 22 seed oils that are omega-rich. It calms and pampers even the most irritable and sensitive skin, and it is a perfect choice for people with dry and red skin, hormonal skin (from pregnancy and menopause) and dry and dehydrated winter skin. It is vegan, fragrance-free and cruelty-free– therefore you can really feel good about using this lovely facial oil.

It is lightweight, fast absorbing and it has a lovely velvety texture. Furthermore, it helps to soften the appearance of fine lines and gives skin a lovely luminous glow. Among the oils are: camellia seed, grape seed, meadowfoam seed, pumpkin seed, cranberry, raspberry, chia, pomegranate, cherry, carrot seed– to name but a few.

According to Votary,

Super Seed Facial Oil is made from 22 different seed oils for skin that is sensitive, in hormonal flux or unsettled. Packed with natural, plant-powered goodness, it naturally addresses sensitive skin issues to give you healthy, glowing skin.

Different life stages bring changing skin issues such as dryness, redness and loss of elasticity. Pregnancy and the menopause can unsettle skin. Stress and lack of sleep can also have an impact. When skin loses its comfort and glow, Super Seed Facial Oil can help coax it back to radiant, dewy health.

Directions: Put four to five drops onto your palms. Hold your palms to your face and take a moment to inhale the natural fragrance and let it settle your mind. Now smooth the oil onto your face and neckline using gentle upward motions. Use your fingertips to gently pat the oil into the area around your eyes. Be gentle with your skin – don’t pull or stretch – so that it retains its elasticity. Allow a moment for absorption, and now your skin is perfectly prepped for make-up or for SPF.
Select Ingredients: Pumpkin seed oil is abundant in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, making it intensely hydrating for skin. Hemp seed oil works to increase the skin’s elasticity and to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Meadowfoam seed oil is deeply moisturizing and helps to balance oil production.

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Curcubita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Limanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) Oil, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil, Papaver Somniferum (Poppy) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Corymbosum (Blueberry) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Oil, Tocopherol Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Prunus Cerasus (Cherry) Seed Oil, Citrullus Lanatus (Melon) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil. FRAGRANCE-FREE, ANTI-IRRITATION, CALMING, AND DEEPLY NOURISHING.
Votary Super Seed Nutrient Cream ($102): First, as one would suspect,  this wonderful face cream pairs perfectly with the Votary Super Seed Facial Oil, and I often add a few drops of the oil to the cream and warm them in my hands before massaging the mixture into my skin, and it is such a treat for dehydrated and dry winter skin. This cream boasts a rich and emollient texture that melts into the skin in the most remarkably satisfying way. It soothes and protects skin and offers serious, and sustained, hydration. It is made from a blend of 22 seed oils, which work wonders nourishing and moisturizing the skin, and ingredients such as hyaluronic acid that offer sustained hydration while plumping fine lines. There is no greasy residue left behind, but instead it has a nearly matte finish. It is a wonderful cream for sensitive skin, or anyone experiencing dryness, dehydration or redness.

According to Votary,

A carefully formulated source of support for fragile skin. Our best-selling, much-loved Super Seed Nutrient Cream now includes potent hyaluronic acid for even more hydrating goodness. Its natural, calming formula is fragrance-free and boosted with 22 richly nourishing super seed oils. Used on its own –  or for extra goodness on top of your facial oil  – it helps to create a layered barrier between your face and the world. Deeply moisturizing and protective, it leaves your skin wrapped up and ready to face any kind of weather.

Super Seed Nutrient Cream is also a brilliant way to prime your skin for make-up. Its matte, smooth finish means foundation settles and fixes properly, so your skin stays looking luminous and dewy all day long. There’s no shine and no slip – just great staying power.
Select Ingredients: Grapeseed oil is non-comedogenic and anti-inflammatory making it perfect for acne-prone or sensitive skin. Pomegranate seed oil has anti-aging properties and supports cell regeneration. Blueberry seed oil contains powerful antioxidants to protect from environmental pollution. Hyaluronic acid maximizes hydration retention

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycerin, Cetearyl Glucoside, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Sodium Phytate Hyaluronate, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) Seed Oil, Papaver Orientale (Poppy) Seed Oil, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Blueberry) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Prunus Avium (Sweet Cherry) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis (Marigold) Flower Oil, Passiflora Edulis (Passion Fruit) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Phytate, Sorbic Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum. Pure plant oils. Vegan. Cruelty Free.
Overall Assessment: This is an extraordinary value for two exceptional products, and it is definitely worth getting before this box sells out. I should also note that since this face oil and cream are excellent in their ability to calm red skin, that they are wonderful to use after at-home peels and exfoliation. A+
