As Penny puts it...
Imagine blooms opening, their velvety petals glinting with drops of dew that reflect in the morning sun. Let this beautiful rose polish transport you to where the lilting boughs of coconut palms sway across the white sands of a remote tropical beach.
This delicate rose-scented facial polish softens and hydrates the skin while bringing a gentle toning action. Rose and hibiscus-infused cane sugar gently buff the skin, while Shea and coconut oils work beautifully in tandem to leave your skin radiant, refreshed, and renewed.
Ritual Use this polish as a skin-softening facial mask while relaxing in the bath- a calming experience for every sense. Apply a teaspoon to your face, lips, neck, shoulders, and décolleté. Gently massage into skin, using delicate circular motions, then let it rest for at least 10 mins while the botanicals work their magic. When you're ready, place a warm, steamy face cloth over your face and inhale the fragrant flower aromas. Gently wipe away and rinse until your face feels clean, fresh, and reawakened. Complete with Penny Frances' Rose Geranium Hibiscus Botanical Mist.
