Back in June, the Cut’s beauty director Kathleen Hou learned that she’d been washing her face all wrong: Instead of using her hands, she ought to be using a “flannel” (a.k.a. a washcloth) alongside a cult cleanser from Votary, a natural skin-care line developed by Arabella Preston, Kate Middleton’s makeup artist. The cleanser, Hou writes, “is a thin, non-cloying oil blend that you apply dry to the face.” Here are her instructions: “Give yourself a gentle massage and rub with damp hands, and even the densest caking of makeup and mascara will easily dissolve. Note that at no point when using the cleansing oil do you actually splash water on your face — you must wet the flannel in hot water and then use it to wipe your face clean.” Afterward, Hou writes, “my skin feels nourished, and unlike other oil cleansers, doesn’t leave a cloudy film over my eyes.” Right now, the cleanser (as well as a handful of other Votary products) is extremely discounted, as all sale items at Anthropologie are an extra 40 percent off. Note: The discount is applied at checkout.
