Freshen up with this brightening and smoothing eco-exfoliant. This dual-use polish may be used as and exfoliating paste or as a mask. Gentle alpha-hydroxy acids loosen the bonds between dead skin cells, while kaolin clay and poppy seeds work to manually lift the dead skin cells from the skin surface. You'll notice that your serums and moisturizers are more effective after using this polish.

Gommage - Using a nickel sized amount, massage a thin layer onto cleansed face and neck for 1 minute.

Simply, remove with a warm cloth.)

- Poppy Seed: A gentle, natural exfoliant that renews the skin without over-the-top irritation.
- Sweet Almond Oil: Go nuts with this stuff, because high levels of essential fatty acids repair skin’s barriers and provide skin-quenching benefits.
- Kaolin Clay: Gently draws out impurities without stripping the skin.
- Lactic Acid: Cleopatra’s legendary beauty secret was said to be milk baths – and we can see why. AHA naturally found in milk improves skin’s texture and tone while keeping it moisturized.
- Bearberry: This natural skin lightener balances and brightens the skin, while providing additional antioxidants.
- Sage Leaf Extract: No need to consult a sage. If you seek balance and hydration, this is the answer.
- Caffeine: Your skin sips caffeine for increased circulation and increased oxygen levels, which in turn eliminate bacteria.
- Ecobeads: Biodegradable beads that gently and effectively exfoliate the skin, leaving it renewed and hydrated without polluting our oceans with harmful plastics!
