Yes!! It's official votarylondon has entered my life. I heard a lot about Votary, primarily that it was expensive (this little pot of heaven costs £65), that its hot hot hot and that its a newish UK brand (started in 2015). This excites me as I love discovering and supporting UK beauty brands. We need MORE cool brands please. The Super Seed Nutrient Cream contains 21 super seed oils and is alllll natural, suits all skin types, although the write up for this one made it seem to be particularly aimed at sensitive skin suffering from redness and dehydration, which did make me wonder if it might be a bit on the oily/heavy side. It also promises to deeply nourish and strengthen the skin barrier, protecting against environmental aggressors - YIKES! . . I opened it right away, as the little card it came with told me that its perfect for winter skin and I felt my skin needed nourishing asap. Apply it in the morning it said, so I did. Though its consistency (super thick) made me scared and wonder if it would be more suitable for night, I just went for it. What really surprised me was how quickly and nicely it melted into my skin, leaving behind a super smooth, mattified finish, which was actually the PERFECT base for my make-up! It is fragrance free (I have read that it does have some sort of smell, but I have flu so I literally have no idea what it smells like!!) On first application it felt GREAT, obviously I will have a better idea of how much my skin loves it after longer use, but for now 👍🏻👍🏻 . . FYI on their website Votary states that they use recyclable packaging, never test products on animals and do not use any animal ingredients. Always a massive plus!
Dr Jart Sample Sunday ✨
This is the Ceramidin Cream by Dr Jart. I got one use from this packet which sorta sucked but it was free. This is a very fragranced, lemony product. It was very hydrating but it ultimately broke me out. Definitely for dry skin! Dr Jart is not cruelty free and this product is no worthy exception for me to purchase. Just meh! Not for me.
Finally digging into the 111SKIN nocturnal eclipse recovery cream nacy2 designed to effectively target signs of ageing working through the night. This cream tells us we will wake to a smooth, hydrated and radiant skin. I've only used it the one time so far so will need to keep it up to review properly. So far I can report it's thick/almost balm like texture and its supreme hydration properties. I look forward to discovering the more long term results of continued use. ❤
Very Gentle Cream
Ahhh, Trilogy! If you’re skincare-obsessed, you need to know this brand! More than likely, you’ve either read about a product or two (especially their rosehip oil), or you’ve seen the products in Whole Foods. Either way, you might be curious. Now, I have not tried their famous rosehip oil, but I have tried their “Very Gentle Moisturizing Cream,” and it’s really, really nice. It’s filled with really nice, safe ingredients, too! The product rests inside of an apothecary-esque, frosted, brown glass jar. Which feels lovely in the hand, and is sure to be beautiful on any vanity. Also, as a bonus, Trilogy has been kind enough to include a little spatula inside the carton. Upon first application, you’ll more than likely feel something... different, to say the least. I’ve tried hundreds of creams, but none feel quite like this. It’s somewhat waxy, which is sort of soothing. There is a scent; a natural scent, but a scent nonetheless. It kind of reminds me of Crayola crayons! At the end of the process, skin is given this instant, light glow; and is left feeling smooth and moisturized. Even though I’m not a huge fan of creams, I still love to try them! I’d say this is one of the best to try. Especially if your skin is sensitive! I personally had no adverse reactions while using this. Beautiful product, beautiful brand.
never hated a product as much as I hate this.
I literally put hand sanitizer on after filming this because of how bad and chemical like this lotion smelled. The ingredients list is so sketchy. this burnt my face. I wish I could sue the company. no. never. i hate this so much. it does nothing good for the skin I hope no one ever has to go through the torture of using this. PURE NERIUM - Daily Face Cream I wish I could give this a zero.
PURE NERIUM-Daily Face Cream
Pretty in pink!
The Alpyn Beauty Melt Moisturizer is so beautiful and smells very earthy! It has a very beautiful pink tint to it. I enjoy this moisturizer but it is not my favorite. It is very thick, and sometimes leaves a dry egg feeling on my face. Which is a no for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin so I though it would be perfect for me! I ended up giving it to my mom who has combo skin and she loved it! She likes it so much that I bought her a new one for her birthday! It is a beautiful skincare line, and I absolutely love the little meanings behind some of their products. For example the pink color of their products is meant to mimic the alpynglow!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
