Volition Beauty is a brand that was new to me when I first started testing out these products; however I had heard quite a bit of chatter in the beauty community about some of these products. Volition’s mission is collaborative and transparent innovation.  They believe that new beauty products should be created by real people with real beauty problems (like us).

The Volition community create the products! Yes, you read that right. Volition is an online platform where you can create your own beauty products. Simply submit your idea or browse through ideas that have already been submitted by other users. The community votes on products to be made by a global network of chemists and labs that have vast experience formulating luxury products. Neat, isn’t it?

Volition Oil Control Mattifying Mist | $29

This invigorating mist will give you a fresh face, free of shine. It’s the perfecting spray to leave your skin flawlessly matte, hydrated, and refreshed.

The Oil Control Mattifying Mist is a lightweight mist that combines amino acids and a natural humectant powder for maximum mattifying results. It reduces unwanted shine and oil, while providing a flawless finish to take you from the gym, to the office, to a night out. This product claims to give you an instant matte finish while controlling shine, reducing the appearance of unwanted sebum, and helping to stabilize oil production. It’s also vegan!

The packaging of this product is perfect. It feels super luxurious. The product is housed in a sturdy glass bottle and does not really have much of a scent to it. The nozzle distributes a nice, fine mist that is evenly distributed across your face. Just a couple of sprays makes your skin look more matte. It also helps keep your makeup on a bit longer! I like to personally spray this on my skin first, sort of as a “priming spray,” then spray it again once I’ve applied my makeup to really lock everything into place.

Volition Beauty Oceanene Youth Boost Gel | $50

From the Brittany shoreline, this remarkable marine algae boasts skin rejuvenating benefits. The lightweight but powerful gel moisturizer highlights this complex ingredient and combines it with other anti-aging bio-actives.

The powerful active ingredient in this product is algae, a product that women have turned to for centuries for beauty and health rituals. The algae in the Oceanene Youth Boost Gel is found along the seashores in Brittany, one of the historic provinces in France. Because of this algae, the Youth Boost Gel protects skin from free radical attacks on skin lipids. It also aids collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis for intense hydration and smoother, younger looking skin. Vitamin C helps to brighten and even your skin tone while Sodium Hyaluronate helps deliver a moisture surge and instant plumping effect. This product claims to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also vegan!

The packaging for this product is super nice. It’s a weighty glass jar, containing the magical gel inside! I find that this moisturizer is very light, not too heavy, which is good for those of us who have oily or acne prone skin. It’s light enough to use underneath your makeup in the morning, too! It absorbs rather quickly into your skin and gives you the effect of a makeup primer. Gel moisturizers are really great for those of us who have oily skin. I do find that while I’ve been using this consistently, my skin has been producing less oils, which is definitely a plus.

Volition Beauty Helix AM/PM Eye Gel | $52

This serious nighttime eye treatment can also be the perfect daytime makeup canvas. The Helix immediately improves hydration, depuffs and smooths skin for flawless makeup application while, over time, improving firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

The Helix AM/PM Eye Gel is a fast absorbing, cooling gel, that acts like a primer, but renews like a powerful anti-aging treatment. The secret is a repairing helix complex from escargot that firms an decreases fine lines and wrinkles. The use of snail mucin as a skincare treatment dates back to ancient Greece.  The Helix is an organic compound containing allantoin, collagen, eslastic, and glycolic acid – all highly beneficial in helping the skin appear brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated. This product is clinically proven to improve moisture levels by 67.8% after 24 hours and 78.8% after 4 weeks.

Again, this product comes in a cute little glass jar! A lot of eye creams/gels claim they can be used underneath makeup but they are too heavy or greasy, which causes your eyeshadow to crease throughout the day. I find this product is perfect to use underneath your eye makeup. It also doesn’t cause any creasing of any concealing products you’re applying underneath your eyes. It does blur any small imperfections that you may have, which creates the perfect canvas for you to apply makeup. It absorbs in rather quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on your eyes.

Overall, I’m thoroughly pleased with all of the products mentioned in this post. I also love the fact that these products are sort of “double duty” products. Not only are they great skincare items to have and use on a daily basis, but they actually work underneath makeup – which means you can use them both in the morning and evening and get the extra added benefits that the products provide. I would recommend anyone to try out Volition Beauty! I love their mission and the creativity behind the products they produce – I don’t know of any other brand out there that allows you to create your own products.
