Boxwalla Beauty Box February 2020 Review feat. Votary
Each Boxwalla box comes with a letter printed on high-quality cardstock detailing the items included. This month features two full-size products from British brand, Votary. Their beautiful green glass bottles are a signature of theirs and always look fantastic on the shelf.
Also included was a booklet from the brand with even more information, including advice for using each item.
Votary Super Seed Facial Oil, 1.7 oz. - Retail Value $110.00
So I have been low-key obsessed with this brand ever since Marne (an angel) gifted me the Votary London Jasmine and Calendula Facial Oil from her December Laurel & Reed review. It is hands down my favorite facial oil of all time and I am so obsessed with it that it is in my purse at all times so I can dip in whenever I am feeling dry on the go. This Super Seed oil is fragrance-free and though I generally prefer scents in my products I can appreciate how this would be much better for sensitive skin. I did notice a slight "seedy" botanical scent that I personally found very light and pleasant. It has literally 22 different seed oils inside! That sounds like a lot (and it certainly is) but this stuff still absorbed really quickly for how rich it is, meaning even if you aren't perhaps an oil fan, this is worth a try since it won't leave you feeling greasy. My skin was downright velvety after I gently massaged a few drops of this on my face. As an oil enthusiast, I always like to remember to use these hearty sorts of oils also on dry elbows, knees, cuticles, and even on the occasional messy hair flyaway. This is a really generously sized bottle so try it out!
Votary Super Seed Nutrient Cream, 1.7 oz. - Retail Value $102.00
Our second and final item is a luxurious cream packaged in the same stunning green glass as our oil. This product is also unscented and has 22 skin-hero oils inside as well as hyaluronic acid and aloe. The feels like a heavy-duty cream on your face until your skin starts to easily absorb it, leaving a perfectly primed and arguably matte surface for makeup. I thought I might reserve this for a night cream, but I love the finish so much I am happily going to make this my daytime go-to with or without makeup. It leaves my skin looking really bright and firm, and the hydration lasts all day while somehow feeling weightless. I love that these high-quality ingredients have both an instant effect on my skin and with longer-term use will improve its texture and overall health.
Verdict: My first Boxwalla Beauty was a dream. I absolutely love the Votary brand. I have tried 3 different products now and my skin just adores these incredible formulas. Add in that everything is cruelty-free and vegan AND still incredibly effective? I am obsessed. In addition, everything is packaged beautifully and feels super luxurious, meaning my day and night time skin rituals feel incredibly elevated. This box had a total value of $212 which is incredible for a $49.95 box any way you look at it and I am over the moon thrilled.
