Within the natural beauty world, Botanicals have made quite a name for themselves over the past decade with their award-winning natural and organic skincare products. Since I tried some small samples over a year ago, I’ve been through a couple of their hydrating toners and have kept a few of their other products patiently sat on my wish list! One of my favourite products from the sample set I tried previously was their Mandarin & Chamomile Facial Polish*, so I was over the moon to receive a full sized jar a few weeks ago!
Botanicals have recently had a re-brand and I absolutely love the new packaging design! This facial polish is essentially an exfoliating cleanser suited for all skin types, but it’s particularly effective on normal, combination and sensitive skin. As is the case with most balm products, it’s very concentrated so a little goes a long way. To use, you simply scoop a small amount of product from the glass jar and massage into the skin in circular motions for a few minutes before removing with a warm face cloth.
This is by far the most gentle exfoliator I’ve ever used! You really don’t feel like you’re scrubbing your face at all as the organic oatmeal and crushed rosehip kernel are so finely ground. Even though it’s so gentle, it’s still incredibly effective at buffing away dead skin cells and smoothing out the skin. I like to use this facial polish a couple of times a week as each time it leaves my often lacklustre skin looking much brighter and feeling so much softer.
I honestly can’t sing the praises of this product highly enough! The ingredients used are also fantastic; 100% natural and 87% organic (certified by the Soil Association). Although the price point is quite high at £18.95 for a 55g jar, you really are getting high quality, and seeing as a little goes a long way I think the cost balances out over time (6 months shelf life once opened). It’s most definitely a product and brand I highly recommend to anyone looking for gentle skincare, especially those with sensitive skin!
