Votary Radiance Reveal Mask ($78.00 for 1.7 oz Retail value): I have collected quite a few of Votary's wonderful products, and this is unquestionably one of my very favorite brands. This wonderful exfoliating mask, which is composed of an effective paring of Mandelic Acid and Lactic Acid, removes dead skin cells to reveal smooth and luminous skin. Over time, it evens and fades hyperpigmentation and it immediately leaves skin soft, smooth, supple, beautifully radiant, and with a pronounced clarity. It has neither dried out my skin, nor caused it to flake and peel. It contains no fragrance and it such a pleasure to use.

According to Votary,

The Radiance Reveal Mask is a highly active resurfacing mask with a powerhouse duo of mandelic acid and lactic acid. Known for their ability to exfoliate skin evenly, these AHA acids work beautifully together to reveal your very best skin.

Because acid exfoliation can sensitise skin, this formulation is enhanced with a proven calming complex of natural plant extracts and is free from fragrance allergens. Radiance Reveal Mask helps improve texture, decongest pores, prevent breakouts, even out pigmentation, and reduce fine lines. It’s a multi-tasking, must-have hero.

This acid peel treatment helps to even out my pigmentation and smooth away fine lines. It reveals my best, baby-soft skin every time I use it. I love that the powerful acids in the Radiance Reveal Mask are supported with calming ingredients in a fragrance free, plant-based formulation.
Directions: Smooth into face and neck, taking care to avoid the eye area. Leave on for 5-15 minutes then remove with a damp face cloth. Use twice a week, or as needed. Some tingling may be experienced and is normal. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol Lactic Acid, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Oil, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Sucrose Stearate , Mandelic Acid, Octyldodecanol, SodiumHydroxide, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Cardiospermum, Halicacabum Flower/ Leaf/ Vine Extract, Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Xylitol, Caprylic Acid , Benzyl Alcohol, Tocopherol.
Arcana Glasswing Immersive Ceramide Milk ($82.00 for 1 oz. Retail value): This is the first time that I have tried Arcana skincare products, and I am elated by the quality, efficacy and the joy I experience when I use their products. This delectable hydrating serum, which is used before their lovely face oil, has a light and milky appearance and a gel-like consistency that melts into the skin in the most satisfying way. It leaves behind no residue and immediately offers extraordinary hydration. Additionally, this glorious serum softens the appearance of fine lines, helps increase collagen synthesis, and it leaves skin soft and smooth. It has a wonderful light quasi fruity-floral aroma that is a treat to the senses.

According to Arcana,

A next-generation hydrating serum, Glasswing quickly replenishes parched skin and strengthens the lipid barrier without leaving any residue. Hyaluronic acid and Tremella mushroom jelly bind water to the skin’s surface while a 5% ceramide complex prevents moisture loss and restores the skin’s lipid barrier. Chicory root oligosaccharides create a firming effect and increase collagen synthesis. Cape Chamomile and Rock Rose essential oils help soothe redness and irritation.  Finally, micron-sized spheres of emollient plant oils act as a delivery system for this complex blend of botanical polysaccharides, ceramides, phospholipids, and essential oil terpenes for a sustained and incandescent glow.
Directions: Shake bottle well. Apply 1-2 pumps to the face and neck after cleansing and misting. For best results, follow with a face oil or balm to seal in hydration. To create a custom micro-emulsion, mix 1 pump of Glasswing with 2-3 drops face oil or balm. For all skin types.

Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, Aqua (water), Sodium hyaluronate (Hyaluronic acid), Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Tremella fuciformis sporocarp (Snow mushroom) extract, Carthamus tinctorius (Safflower) oleosomes, Phospholipids, Ichorium intybus (Chicory) root oligosaccharides, Caesalpinia spinosa (Peruvian carob) gum, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Ceramide EOP, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol (vegan), Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Benzyl alcohol, Dehydroacetic acid, Eriocephalus punctulatus (Cape Chamomile) flower oil*, Cistus ladaniferus (Rock Rose) oil*, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glycerin, Betaine, Sodium benzoate, Gluconolactone.  *organic. 
Arcana Nine Herbs Charm Clarifying Face Oil ($45.00 for 15ml. Retail value): That I am obsessed with luxury face oils is rather obvious at this point, and I have become quite picky about them over the years. I have a penchant for highly effective oils with gorgeous textures and a sublime tactile experience, and this emerald jewel satisfies all of my requirements. Based upon a medieval recipe to draw out poison and toxins, this brilliant oil is a treat to the skin and senses. It boasts anti-inflammatory properties that calm irritated skin, soften the appearance of scars and helps prevent breakouts. It has an intoxicating herbal aroma that is a wonderful treat to the senses. This pairs perfectly with Arcana Galsswing Immersive Ceramide Milk, and is a perfect way to treat the skin after using Votary's Radiance Reveal Mask. 

According to Arcana,

The Nine Herbs Charm is medieval recipe for drawing out poison and toxins, composed of nine herbs and an incantation to be performed while making the charm. Inspired by this herbal lore, we composed our serum for blemished and troubled skin with several of the herbs mentioned in this charm (Mugwort, Nettle, Plantain, Fennel, Chamomile) which are powerful anti-inflammatories. A blend of high-linoleic acid plant oils, composed specifically for acne-prone skin, helps banish pore-clogging sebum and soften scars. Essential oils with antibacterial and antiseptic properties kill bacteria and relieve irritation.

Perfect for: Acne-prone, red, irritated, inflammed, oily, or hormonal skin types. It is also wonderful as a very light face oil that does not clog pores.
Directions: Apply a pea-sized amount to the face and neck after cleansing and misting. Can be used morning or evening.

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil*, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) Seed Oil*, Artemisia Vulgaris (Mugwort) Extract*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract*, Filipendula Ulmaria (Meadowsweet) Leaf/flower/stem Extract*, Galium Aparine (Cleavers) Extract*, Plantago Major (Plantain) Leaf Extract*, Verbena Offinalis (Vervain) Leaf Extract*, Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) Oil*, Tanacetum Annuum (Blue Tansy) Flower Oil*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Urtica Dioica Leaf Oil, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Leaf Oil*, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil*, Foeniculum Vulgare (Sweet Fennel) Oil*, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Oil*, Linalol^, Geraniol^, Limonene^, Citral^. *organic ^natural component of essential oils.
