What is it? Boots Botanics Smoothing Face Polish is a "creamy exfoliating face polish that is gentle enough to use every day, removing impurities and dead skin cells. Leaves skin naturally soft, smooth and radiant." Available at drugstore.com and at Target (wherever Boots products are sold) for less than $9.00.
What did you think? When I think back about my beauty history, I can easily remember that one of the first fancy-schmancy products I used was Clinique's Exfoliating Scrub. I started using it back in the late 80s and I still love it. I mention this because Smoothing Face Polish from Boots reminds me of my Clinique fave.
The Boots polish has a faint almond scent that I really like. If you're not a fan of almondy aromas, you may not agree. But for me, almond is almost always better than vanilla. The exfoliators in this polish are very gentle, but they do an excellent job of softening my skin without stripping away too much oil.
Boots has a bunch of certified organic products under their Botanics line, but so far this is my favorite. I really can use it every day without worrying about irritation or over-drying.
The final verdict? It's a winner! It's gentle but it does soften and smooth skin, so thumbs up!
