Latest Boxwalla boasts Votary London’s Super Seed range, which is aimed for sensitive, dry, hormonal and redness prone skin. Without further ado, lets go straight into my review:
Super Seed Nutrient Cream is formulated without essential oils, fragrance free, enriched with Fatty Alcohols, 22 super seed oils, Mango butter and Aloe Vera Leaf Juice. Also includes potent hyaluronic acid for hydration.
I’ve tested the cream in my day and night routines, in cool (13-14 degrees) and warm weather (38-41 degrees). This cream is rich, oh yes no mucking about there but it is not pore clogging at all. It claims to be soothing, nourishing and protecting – completely agree with it all. While formulated for sensitive, in hormonal flux or unsettled skins, I think this would be excellent also on over exfoliated skin, abused and tortured skin (hello tret users), sunburnt skin, freshly lasered skin.
Perfect for layering (no piling experienced, either with oil under or over), excellent sealant over any oil or balm leaving a velvet finish on skin. Its beautiful under makeup making it an excellent primer as well and makeup sets nicely (no creasing or setting in fine lines). Lazy nights include a thorough cleanse, hydration serum and this cream. Done and my skin still appears plump and rested following morning.
Inci List: Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycerin, Cetearyl Glucoside, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Sodium Phytate Hyaluronate, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) Seed Oil, Papaver Orientale (Poppy) Seed Oil, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Blueberry) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Prunus Avium (Sweet Cherry) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis (Marigold) Flower Oil, Passiflora Edulis (Passion Fruit) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Phytate, Sorbic Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum.
Next up is the Super Seed Facial Oil, honestly, I’ve barely reached for the Facial oil, perhaps 3-4 times, not because anything is wrong with it. Its light, without any essential oils or fragrances (making it perfect for sensitive reactive skins). I used about 7-8 drops all over face, neck and décolletage. It absorbs nicely in the skin, no sticky or oily residue on skin, even the oily skins would love this oil. So one may ask, why haven’t I reached for it as much, well it didn’t excite me! Its an oil, I’ve tried many many oils and anyone who knows me well enough, is versed with my love for oils and balms. But this just doesn’t excite me enough to reach for it. Its an oil!!!
As for the inci list, claims to be formulated with 22 Seed Oils – Grapeseed, Pumpkin, Cranberry, Chia, Meadowfoam, Black Seed, Camellia, Hemp, Strawberry, Poppy, Pomegranate, Blueberry, Linseed, Rosehip Fruit, Borage, Broccoli, Cherry, Melon, Raspberry, Sunflower, Carrot Seed and Calendula flower extract (which I don’t believe comes from seeds, but from petals, please correct me if I’m wrong).
I would recommend to get this box purely for the Nutrient Cream, which in itself is excellent value ($102 for cream, $110 for oil and box is $49.95) and thankfully the box subscription is extended till February 20th, 2020.
