VOTARY | Founder Travel Stories
We have teamed up with the Tatler award-winning and vegan skincare brand Votary. Their Super Seed Skincare Set and Mini Travel Set will keep your skin looking beautifully healthy and happy for your next holiday…

Votary began at British Makeup Artist Arabella Preston’s kitchen table. The brand’s luxurious and vegan line of skincare products harnesses the power of premium plant oils, to deliver incredibly soothing, age-defying benefits that are clean as well as green. With a passion for plant oils and botanical actives, formations are blended by co-founder Arabella personally ensuring that there are products suited for every skin type. Combining simplicity with sustainability, all of Votary’s products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free and sustainably packaged, offering customers the ultimate guilt-free skincare essentials for healthy, happy, glowing skin.
We caught up with Arabella to find out a little more about her travelling memories and what’s important to her when running a sustainable brand…

Tell us about your most meaningful, exciting or stand-out memory of travel.

The day lockdown lifted in the summer of 2020, we jumped in the car and drove to Europe. We stopped in France and then made our way through Italy. My kids had never been to Venice before and we had three perfect days there. It was empty of tourists and more beautiful than ever. In Florence, it felt like we had the Uffizi to ourselves. Standing in front of Botticelli’s Venus on my own was one of those moments I knew I’d remember all my life.
Arabella Preston, Co-Founder Votary
