Votary Clarifying Duo
Co-created by British make up artist Arabella Preston, VOTARY’s luxurious line harnesses the power of premium plant oils, which deliver incredibly soothing, age-defying benefits without sitting on the surface of your skin (as creams and man-made mineral oils can). Perfect for oily, blemish-prone skin, this Clarifying Duo (worth £80 and saving you £14.50) unites full sizes of the Clarifying Cleansing Oil - Rosemary and Oat (100ml) and Blemish Rescue Oil – Tamanu and Salicylic (15ml). The result? Your skin won’t be triggered into producing more sebum (and starting the whole congested cycle all over again) and will instead be left clean, soft, calm and healthy.
Always thought that you had to avoid oil-based products if you've got oily skin? Think again. Votary's Clarifying Duo unites full sizes of the Clarifying Cleansing Oil - Rosemary and Oat (100ml) and Blemish Rescue Oil – Tamanu and Salicylic (15ml) and is worth £80, giving you a saving of £14.50. An extremely lightweight, non-clogging rice bran oil gently exfoliates skin while rosemary and bergamot deep cleanses, lifting and removing impurities, leaving pores clear. The addition of oat oil gently soothes redness and irritation, then peach and jojoba helps aid healing. Instead of finishing your routine with tight and dry skin which triggers the production of sebum, this cleanse leaves skin soft, clean, calm and healthy. The perfect SOS treatment for angry breakouts, this Blemish Rescue Oil – Tamanu and Salicylic is formulated with 2% salicylic acid and soothing tamanu oil. The clever blend penetrates pores and dissolves dead skin cells, calms and reduces redness and inflammation, while speeding up healing and minimising scarring (basically everything you want from a blemish treatment). Developed to improve blemish recovery time, this miracle worker will leave skin soft, healed and heathy with no angry redness in sight.
Cleansing Oil: Put 4 to 5 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand. Spread between your palms and then apply to your face. Start with your cheeks, then your nose, mouth and jawline and finally the area around your eyes. Splash your face with warm water and continue to massage the oil into your face and eyelashes. Now here’s the absolutely crucial part. Take a clean flannel. Soak it in hand-hot water, wring it out, and put it over your face. Breathe in and allow the steam to penetrate your pores. Then, gently wipe everything away. Repeat if necessary. To finish, splash your face with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
Rescue Oil: Place 1 drop of oil on a fingertip and apply in a gentle circular motion to the area affected. Do this twice a day, after cleansing, until your skin has recovered.
