Votary Super Seed Cleansing Oil & Jasmine and Calendula Face Oil Review

The Votary Super Seed Cleansing Oil 

Is a thick oil used to remove makeup or dirt and grime that accumulates during the day or over night. 

This oil is perfect for any skin type that is treating ageing issues, though I have a feeling the dryer skin types will love it more.

It does not emulsify, you need to remove it using a warm cotton flannel. It can also double as a mask. I applying it every morning before I jump into the shower so no water touches my face  as an attempt to preserve youthful skin. 

I do not worry too much if I am unable to remove all residue of this cleanser as the ingredients are skin friendly. 


vitis vinifera (grapeseed) oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, curcubita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil, vaccinium macrocarpon (cranberry) seed oil, limanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, salvia hispanica (chia) seed oil, camellia oleifera (camellia) seed oil, cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil, fragaria ananassa (strawberry) seed oil, nigella sativa (black seed) oil, papaver somniferum (poppy) seed oil, linum usitatissimum (linseed) oil, punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil, vaccinium corymbosum (blueberry) seed oil, tocopherol borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, brassica oleracea italica (brocoli) seed oil, citrullus lanatus (melon) seed Oil, prunus cerasus (cherry) seed oil, rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil, rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil, carum petroselinum (parsley) seed oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) herb oil, calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, daucus carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Limonene+, Linalool+, +Naturally occurs in Essential Oils

As you can tell this is an exhaustive list of mainly oil based ingredients which can only be good for our skin. 

Another way to use the cleansing oil is to apply it then add steam to the face by placing a warm flannel over the entire face, for about a minute then massage the face for as long as 10 minutes if you have the time. This will give you a mini facial and reveal radiant glowing skin.

My Verdict This is a great facial oil which shows visible results after two weeks of consistent use, though it’s on the pricer side of cleansers it’s still not the most expensive. Very little goes a long way and in my opinion this is £55 well spent. Especially if you do not have regular facials etc

 Votary Facial Oil Jasmine & Calendula

It has to be said I have temperamental skin, most oils that are good for my skin end up breaking me out for one reason or another. 

It’s very refreshing to find an oil that is great for oily skin and actually takes care of sensitive skin too. 

This is a light blend of oils that can be used in the morning or at night, it’s perfect as a serum or underneath moisturiser for dryer skin types,  Which I do think would need the extra moisture, as this oil might not be enough own it’s on.

The essential oils are a perfect blend an intoxicatingly relaxing scent and doesn’t trigger sensitive skin

Ingredients are as follows

vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil, tocopherol calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, jasminum grandiflorum (jasmine) flower extract, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) herb oil, dalbergia (rosewood), helichrysum italicum (immortelle) oil, limonene+, linalool+, geraniol+, + Naturally occurs in essential oils

My Verdict

If you have dry skin, then invest in the Super seed oils and cream. However if you are like me and struggle with oily sensitive skin this is it, the Skincare Gods gift to you, use twice a day in conjunction with the Votary cleansing oil and you will soon see well nosrished supple skin in no time.
