Super Seed Facial Oil
What is it? Super Seed Facial Oil is a an oil serum made with 22 plant seed oils designed to address sensitive skin issues.
Notes from the Curator: One of the most universally appealing oil serums, it absorbs beautifully, and is one of our favorite products from Votary. No wonder it earned a spot in our Beauty Box. It contains no essential oils.
Let’s get Nerdy: One of the seed oils used in this oil serum is Strawberry seed oil. Says Arabella, co-founder of Votary, “The ellagic acid which is in strawberry seed oil is the main reason why it’s so good for your skin. Combined with the omega oils & the vitamin E, it moisturizes, improves elasticity, & is good at plumping up the fine lines.
- About the Brand
Votary, a British brand, was founded by Arabella Preston and Charlotte Semler. Arabella is a former beauty editor & a makeup artist (whose clients include Kate Middleton & Stella McCartney), who used to blend pure plant oils for years for both herself & her clients. On a lunch with friends, when entrepreneur, friend & former boss Charlotte realized that Arabella blended her own oils to cleanse & moisturize her skin as well as her clients’ skin, she decided to team up with her to bring these gorgeous plant oil based formulations to the world. And so Votary was born.
- How to Use
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.
