Our beautiful be-ribboned boxes are also so elegant and chic beneath your Christmas tree. Votary’s award-winning new products mean you have even more options to select something perfect for your family and friends.
I love everything about Christmas, but I know how super-busy it gets beforehand, which is why I’ve put together this list of my top Christmas picks to save you time. Here’s what I’ll be giving this year, and why I love them. I know my family and friends will too.
For those seeking calm… Votary Lavender and Chamomile Soy Wax Candle.
I love preparing my space for sleep as I relax and wind down. Whether I am in the bath, or pottering in my bedroom, I adore lighting one of our beautiful, chic candles and letting the pure, calming botanical fragrance drift around me. It’s the perfect pre-sleep soother. Made from natural soy wax, and infused with our bespoke botanical fragrance of lavender, rose and chamomile essential oils, it brings elegance and tranquillity to my room. I light mine each evening for a tranquil keynote in my preparation for bed. It’s perfect for anyone you know who needs to soothing space to calm down in after stressful, busy days.
For those wanting lustrous, smooth limbs and who love an indulgent bath or shower… Votary Antidote Night Oil.
I sleep so much more deeply and peacefully if I take a long, fragrant bath before bedtime. I add this oil to the water, and massage more into my skin before going to bed. It leaves my skin feeling soft and comforted. The aromatherapy blend releases its fragrance slowly as I drift off to sleep. Passionflower, calendula and sweet almond deeply moisturise, and add lustrous smoothness if my limbs are seasonally dry. Lavender, rose and chamomile help to de-stress and calm me for sleep. The bespoke formula can be added to a warm bath, used in the shower, or applied directly to skin for smoothness against nightwear and bed linen. I sleep deeply and comfortably and wake with beautifully soft limbs. The gift of beauty sleep is precious indeed.
For those who are luxe travellers… Votary Darlings.
I love being able to pack whatever I need in minutes so that I don’t have to trawl my bathroom shelves for my go-to products. I keep my Votary Darlings to hand in my suitcase, so I know all my skin’s needs will be beautifully cared for wherever I go. A travel-ready beautiful collection of our cult classics, Votary Darlings set contains four miniatures of our best-selling products. It’s perfect for holidays and long weekends.I’ve also gifted it to friends who want to trial how oils can transform their skin. It’s the perfect size for them to really see the difference oils can make.
The Darlings set contains Rose Geranium and Apricot Cleansing Oil for beautifully clean, soft, supple skin; Super Seed Facial Oil which is crammed with the goodness of twenty two different seed oils; Intense Night Oil with potent retinoid to lift, firm and re-set skin during sleep and Intense Eye Oil to lift, firm and replenish the delicate skin around the eye. It also contains our soft, 100% cotton face cloth and a Votary cotton bag to pop them all in. It’s also so gorgeously dinky!
For those who want beautifully clean, comfortable skin… our original cult classic, Votary Rose Geranium and Apricot Cleansing Oil.
This is the first product I made for Votary. Loved by beauty editors and bloggers the world over, it cleans skin properly and leaves it feeling soft, supple and comfortable rather than dry and tight. Made with nourishing apricot oil and jojoba, it has a lovely easy slip on the skin and is brilliant at whisking away all traces of the day, including grime, environmental toxins, sunscreen and makeup. Everyone you know would like the gift of clean, happy, hydrated skin.
For those who need coaxing to sleep…Votary Lavender and Chamomile Pillow Spray
We all have times when we don’t get the quality of sleep that we want. My skin is only ever as good as my last night’s sleep, and to wake feeling properly refreshed, I like to calm my mind at night. The aromatherapy oils in our Pillow Spray bring peace to my bedroom. Lavender, chamomile and rose oils capture the fragrance of a country garden at dusk and evoke calm. The aromatherapy fragrances help to settle and soothe. Give the gift of tranquillity at bedtime to someone you love.
For those who have troubled skin or just the occasional breakout… Votary Blemish Rescue Oil
It’s the perfect stocking filler. Votary Blemish Rescue Oil won 2018 Best of the Best in Bazaar’s Blemish Remedy category and AskMen’s Best for Acne-prone Skin award. This little oil is a life-saver! Redness and inflammation are calmed, healing is speeded-up and scarring is minimised. It’s a must-have, and is transformational not just for the teenager in your life but for anyone who has the occasional blemish due to hormonal flux.
