Nopal cactus pad powder, herbal powders, and sodium bicarbonate deliver a face appropriate polish that gently exfoliates without harsh edges. This polish removes dead skin cells and increases blood flow, encouraging the growth of new cells. Jojoba and camellia seed oil, paired with jasmine sambac floral wax seal in moisture and help maintain a healthy glow.

To use, scoop out about a quarter-sized about with a spoon (this helps reduce bacteria being introduced to the polish) and rub over a wet face in small circular motions. Leave on for about 5 minutes as a mask. Rinse and pat dry.
