Refining Face Polish
Exfoliate, brighten, soften and hydrate while drawing out excess oil, dirt and pore-clogging impurities - leaving you with a radiantly clear complexion and silky smooth skin. Our triple-action facial exfoliant is designed to refine and polish the skin without drying, stripping or irritation.

Palm Oil Derivatives • Phthalates • BPA • Mineral Oil • Silicone • Synthetic Parabens • PEGS (polyethylene glycols) • Synthetic Fragrance • Petrochemicals • Artificial colours • Nanoparticals
A unique triple-action formula with AHA fruit acids to dissolve surface build-up that makes skin appear dull and lacklustre, kaolin clay to draw out impurities and excess oil, and jojoba beads to refine and smooth your skin without harshness.
Our gentle Refining Face Polish is an ideal facial polish for most skin types, carefully formulated with gentle natural ingredients to brighten, clear and refine the skin - all without stripping away natural oils, disrupting pH balance or causing irritation, even on sensitive skin.
A synergistic blend of high-performing Australian botanicals is harnessed and preserved in their purest form - within the cell matrix - to deliver stable, nutrient-rich actives directly to your skin.
By smoothing and brightening the skin, our Refining Face Polish provides an even ‘canvas’ for makeup application - which will look more natural and luminous - as well as helping your daily skincare products to penetrate more effectively.
What is a polish? Does it replace my exfoliator?
Polish = exfoliator. The Refining Face Polish is a triple action formula, so it will gently dissolve surface build-up, remove excess dirt and oil, and exfoliate.
I’m scared to use an exfoliant on my skin because my skin has reacted in the past!
Unfortunately, not all face exfoliants are created with sensitivity in mind. Thankfully, we ensured to formulate one that would be suitable for sensitive skin… In fact, we have many women with perioral dermatitis, rosacea and sensitive skin fall in love with our Refining Face Polish, because it exfoliates while maintaining the skin’s natural pH levels and it’s super gentle.
Is this product safe when pregnant & breastfeeding?
Yes! In fact, our entire range is loved by pregnant and breastfeeding women. However, if you do have any concerns, we suggest consulting further with your medical professional as every individual is unique.
When do I apply my Refining Face Polish?
We recommend applying Refining Face Polish 1-2 times per week (AM or PM). Visit our layering guide to see when, how often and which order to apply your product/s.

"I really like this face polish. It’s gentle but gets rid of any dead skin and gives my skin a glow and smoothness."
how to use
Gently massage a small amount of Refining Face Polish into your skin using circular motions. Allow the natural clays and fruit acids to penetrate into your skin for 2-3 minutes - or leave for 5-10 minutes for a deeper exfoliation. Rinse with warm water.
To keep skin radiant and silky smooth, exfoliate with your Refining Face Polish 1-2 times per week.

Could not be more pleased with this product - seems to have worked already, feeling brighter. I also love the ritual and encouragement to do self care. Having a recent bereavement, these little moments are actually quite powerful and often all I can fit in. Thx Retreatment.
Beautiful and so effective
I use this product every night in the shower before bed to clean out my skin from the day and it has helped reduce breakouts and feels softer.
I have an oily upside down 'T' zone and have been looking for a exfoliator that will just give the nose and chin a little tidy up without leaving me red-faced and hardly any sign of improvement. I received a Retreatment Botanics product in a Retreat Yourself Box and when reordering that, I purchase a little sampler of the Refining Face Polish (and was gifted one by a friend who had the same idea for me at the same time!). Oh my gods it is divine. My skin feels smooth, my troublesome UDTzone is left smoother, tidier and less porous. Best of all - no redness! And I love that you can leave it on while, for example, you rinse the conditioner from the hair, and let the goodness have a little soak in. I use it in the morning as it can also make this tired visage look like it had sleep. Not all the time; but I don't place any blame on the product for that! I will be using this product for as long as they make it or until I am too old to care any more, whichever comes first.
This product is light & leaves my skin feeling fresh. It is not harsh & smells great!
