About the August Beauty Box,

Confessions of a Daffodil...features the cult-favorite British brand Votary. Votary was founded by former beauty editor & celebrity makeup artist Arabella Preston and entrepreneur extraordinaire Charlotte Semler. Arabella had been mixing pure plant oils for years to cleanse & prep her own as well as her clients' skin. She teamed up with friend and former boss Charlotte, to create Votary. And I have to say, through Votary, they both create skincare magic!

We have chosen to bring to you two full-sized products, designed to rejuvenate, brighten & cocoon the skin, that I have been really eager to share with you!

The August Box Includes:
Votary Intense Overnight Mask Rosehip & Hyaluronic (50 ml. $136.00)
Votary Brightening Hyaluronic Serum Narcissus and AHA (50 ml. $118.00) 
Cost to subscribe: $49.95, Retail Value: $254.00
Votary Intense Overnight Mask (Full size, $136.00 value): This ranks among the most beautiful and magical overnight face masks that I have ever tried! The velvety texture is utterly sublime, and it really is a cocooning treatment as Votary asserts! It is formulated to rejuvenate, hydrate and brighten the skin as you sleep, and it also soothes and heals. Additionally, it helps to fade hyperpigmentation, and it softens the appearance of fine lines while deeply hydrating parched skin. While it is an overnight mask, it can also be used as a day moisturizer as well.

It is a very emollient cream, made in a base of Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, but it also includes a long list of nourishing ingredients such as Camu Camu and extracts of Narcissus (which brighten the skin), Oat flour (which soothes irritated skin), and Quinoa seed extract (which helps stimulate collagen synthesis). It has a very light herbal aroma that is absolutely beautiful, albeit not long-lasting.

According to Votary,

VOTARY Intense Overnight Mask boosts skin’s nocturnal renewal cycle for rejuvenated and radiant skin. Its unique blend of natural plant oils and active ingredients combines to smooth fine lines and soften skin.

This comforting, cocooning treatment mask eases signs of fatigue, smooths fine lines, and brightens my skin overnight. The luxurious blend of plant oils and active ingredients mean I wake up to radiant and glowing skin.

Directions: After cleansing, smooth the Intense Overnight Mask generously onto clean skin or over your facial oil. Leave on overnight and remove with your morning cleanser. Wake to your very best skin, and to the VOTARY glow.
Select Ingredients: 

- Natural extracts of narcissus and camu camu brighten and unify skin tone, so you wake up to flawlessly glowing skin.

- Hyaluronic acid’s hydrophilic properties act as a moisture magnet, providing intense hydration. Skin is smoothed and plumped.

- Oat kernel flour helps repair compromised skin, reducing redness and irritation.

- Our luxurious blend of natural plant oils including rosehip, avocado, apricot, tomato seed, and chia, provide the lipid boost your skin needs at night. By morning, skin is nourished, restored and rejuvenated.

- Intense Overnight Mask is delicately scented with pure, natural fragrance of Rose, Lavender and Neroli to encourage sweet dreams and deep, restorative sleep.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Alcohol, Coco-Caprylate, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Coconut Alkanes, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Glucoside, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Narcissus Pseudo-Narcissus (Daffodil) Flower Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Chenopodium Quinoa (Quinoa) Seed Extract, Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit Extract, Pouteria Lucuma (Lucuma) Pulp Extract, Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) Seed Oil, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Herb Oil, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil, Salicylic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Sodium Phytate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Astaxanthin, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Citric Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Coco Caprylate/Caprate, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Tocopherol, Limonene+, Linalool+, Citronellol+, Geraniol+, Hydroxycitronellal+, Citral+, Eugonol+, Farnesol+ +Naturally occurs in Essential Oils.
Votary Brightening Hyaluronic Serum (Full size, $118.00 value): This antioxidant-rich water-based serum is lightweight, fast absorbing and just heavenly. The Hyaluronic Acid intensely hydrates the skin while the AHA Glycolic Acid removes dead skin cells effectively and efficiently. Skin is left incredibly luminous and dewy, but it also has the distinction of plumping fine lines. It helps to even skin tone by fading hyperpigmentation, and it leaves skin soft, smooth and supple. The aroma is informed by the Neroli Flower Water and the other ingredients, and it is utterly divine.

According to Votary.

The Brightening Hyaluronic Serum was formulated to really make an impact for your skin. A brilliant brightening serum which unifies and illuminates your complexion. It has become a firm favourite, and staple in my daily skincare ritual. It also smells divine.

We know our Lemon and Neroli Toning Serum was much loved, but this re-mastered serum really packs a punch. Formulated with narcissus extract, Brightening Hyaluronic Serum unifies skin tone and restores radiance to dull skin. Hyperpigmentation is rebalanced, and skin looks more even and luminous.

Directions: After cleansing, place 4 to 5 drops of the Brightening Hyaluronic Serum onto the palm of your hand. Spread between both palms, then gently press onto your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. Take care to avoid the delicate area around your eyes. Follow the serum with a VOTARY Facial Oil or cream.
Ingredients: Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Water, Aqua (Water), Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Water, Glycerin, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Sucrose, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Narcissus Pseudo-Narcissus (Daffodil) Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Phytate, Glycolic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Salicylic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Hydroxyacetophenone, Xanthan Gum.
Overall Assessment: I have collected quite a few products from Votary, and they are truly extraordinary. This box is an amazing value for two full-size products worth coveting! I highly recommend this box, and I suspect it will sell out quickly. A+
