Watch Pure Polish Ritual:
Boost your skin first thing in the morning by using your Pure Polish as a morning mini-mask every day. Apply it to damp skin and then keep it on while you brush your teeth in the morning, read the papers or have your morning drink. Then simply rinse away with water or in the shower for fabulously fresh and super soft skin.
For added nourishment instead of water, mix it with warm milk and honey to your desired consistency. Apply it in a thick layer to your skin for 10-20 minutes. To remove, simply wash off with warm water.
Great to use as a pre-party brightening pick me mask up for radiant and refreshed skin.
