Naturally Occurring Key Benefits
Activated charcoal’s millions of micropores and bentonite clay’s strong electromagnetic charge, allow them both to be powerful detoxifiers, absorbing toxins, chemicals, and bacteria from deep within your pores
Glycolic Acid – found in sugar, this alpha-hydroxy acid has a uniquely small molecule that is able to penetrate deeply into the skin, treating fine lines, skin dullness, and blackheads
Lactic Acid – naturally occurring in dairy products, this along with the glycolic acid help to remove the dead skin cells on the surface, allowing the detoxifying ingredients to penetrate more deeply, resulting in clearer, less congested skin
French green clay and rhassoul clay help to tone the pores and increase circulation which brightens skin, they gently but effectively cleanse your skin, leaving it balanced and toned
Allantoin – helps to soften skin, while reducing inflammation and enabling skin to repair
Note: Applying concentrated acids, particularly AHAs to the skin can be harsh and even make your skin more susceptible to sun damage, if you do not protect it properly. All the acids in our face polishes are found in the whole ingredient, the ingredient has not been processed to just extract that one component. What this means for you is a more gentle approach to exfoliation, they help to work with your skin’s natural rhythm to smooth, brighten, and refine.

How to Use
Recommended: If using in the evening, use an oil cleanser or other product to remove makeup, we recommend our Leave The Day Behind Cleansing Oil to tackle any stubborn makeup and sunscreen. If using in the morning, no need to pre-cleanse.
Splash face with water, while still damp, pour about a 1/2 tablespoon, slighter larger than a quarter of face polish into the palm of your hand. Add just enough water to make a thick paste and gently spread onto your face. Carefully massage your face, focusing on congested areas and areas with greater texture, making sure to not press too hard, let the polish do the work. We recommend leaving this on as a mask by letting it sit on the skin for 5-15 minutes, even just a couple minutes will help, this will help to further cleanse and refine your skin. Splash your face with cool, not cold water, until all product is removed, pat dry.
Follow with a toner, such as our Everlasting Green Tea Toning Mist or our Witch Rose Balancing Toning Mist. When your face is still damp, follow with facial oils or moisturizers in order of critical skin nourishing ingredients.
This can be used in the evening to help your facial treatments to sink in deeper, or used in the morning to provide a smooth surface for your makeup to be applied to. It is recommended to use this once to twice a week, definitely no more than once per day.
If irritation develops discontinue use. For some this is a daily polish and others might find using this every other day is more beneficial to their skin, do what works best for your skin.
Becky’s Tips: I try to save this scrub for mornings when I know I have a few extra minutes, I allow it to sit on my face while I brush my teeth and longer, if I am able, I notice a big difference when I leave this for even just a few minutes.
Rachel’s Tips: I use this exclusively in the mornings, using our Hello Beautiful Anti-Aging Face Oil along with some water to hydrate the clay has made this mask even more gentle and calming.

The formula for our Skin Detox Charcoal Face Polish and Mask was one that I made for Rebekah long before our business even started. It was one that Rebekah would ask for as soon as she started to run out, it was a slam dunk for our initial line of products we rolled out.
