About Votary and Verden,

Created by former beauty editor and celebrity makeup artist Arabella Preston and entrepreneur extraordinaire Charlotte Selmler, Votary is a much-loved British brand whose each product is like a pair of safe hands, gently guiding you as you take care of your skin. Votary brings to life Arabella and Charlottes's vision for healthy skin through the transformative power of pure plant oils.
While the focus of Votary is the most beautiful skincare, Arabella and Charlotte created Verden to center around natural fragrance rituals. Verden means 'the world' or 'the Earth' in Danish and is inspired by Charlotte's Danish childhood memories.
Votary Super Sensitive Cleansing Cream: This creamy wonder is non-stripping, nourishing, ultra gentle and a revelation in cleansing. It is a lightweight and emollient cream that I like to massage into the skin, and in so doing it just melts into the most extraordinarily effective cleanser. It effortlessly removes dirt, makeup and debris without leaving behind a greasy residue. I have normal/combination skin, and have always gravitated toward cleansers that lather or foam, but this is so effective and gentle that it is now part of my regular skincare routine. It is made in a base of Aloe Vera, which accounts for its lighter texture, and it includes 21 super seed oils that effectively moisturize, nourish and soothe the skin. It has no artificial fragrance, but there is a faint pleasant aroma from the super seed oils.

According to Votary, 

Super Sensitive Cleansing Cream is an ultra gentle rinse-off cleansing cream that melts away dirt, impurities and makeup effortlessly while supporting your skin’s essential barrier function. VOTARY’s first non-oil cleanser is formulated specifically with super-sensitive skin in mind, leaving delicate skin calmed and hydrated.

This nourishing cleansing cream is the best way to cleanse sensitive, reactive skin. The soothing rinse-off formulation leaves skin clean and soft while supporting your skin barrier through tough times.

Directions: Apply all over face and neck with damp hands, massaging for 30 seconds. Rise and gently pat dry.

Votary Natural Glow Day Cream: This is now officially my favorite day cream! It is a lightweight antioxidant-rich cream that melts into the skin immediately leaving skin soft, smooth, supple, hydrated and luminous. The anti-inflammatory ingredients effectively calm down irritated skin, the Bakuchiol softens the appearance of fine lines and evens out the skin, and the Hyaluronic Acid plumps fine lines and effectively retains hydration. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin, and it is such a pleasure to use. It has only the very faintest light herbal aroma, but it dissipates immediately. 

According to Votary,

Meet VOTARY's latest skin hero: a multi-active cream to uplift and give a gorgeous, natural glow. Formulated with a trio of plant ferments: Radish, pomegranate and collamung provide a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, smooth skin and maintain a healthy skin barrier.

Pichia yeast ferment firms, smooths and improves skin texture. Bakuchiol is the gentler alternative to retinol and provides powerful antioxidant and anti-ageing benefits to reduce fine lines, improve elasticity and fight signs of photo damage - all while keeping sensitive skin types perfectly happy.

A moisture boosting complex of hyaluronic acid and micro-encapsulated safflower oleosomes deliver slow-release, long-lasting hydration. The result? A soft, plump and seriously dewy complexion.

When I want to get up and glow, I reach for this lipid-rich day cream. The clever slow-release oleosomes and plant ferments provide day-long hydration and protection for your skin. It’s your skin at its very best, with a wonderful natural glow.
Directions: After cleansing, massage into clean skin with fingertips.

Verden D'Orangerie Hand Cream: The market is so saturated with hand creams, but this one really stands out. The first thing one notices is the delectable citrus and orange blossom aroma, and while the name indicates the scent nothing prepares you for the extraordinarily transformational aromatic experience when it melts into the skin. This is experiential hand care at its best. It is lightweight, antioxidant-rich, ultra-emollient and it melts into the skin immediately without leaving behind any sort of greasy residue. It nourishes, hydrates and moisturizes the skin, and leaves hands soft, smooth, supple and luminous. This is a revelation in hand care.

According to Verden,

The new hand creams invite you to carry the VERDEN fragrances with you, helping you to reconnect with nature and your breath in your daily routine.

A rich and nourishing formula, the hand cream absorbs instantly to leave hands soft and supple. Infused with D’Orangerie: an uplifting, bright infusion of citrus and orange blossom.
