This product is a favorite among my male clients as well as teens! You all know by now, I always recommend the use of a daily exfoliate in the exchange of your facial wash. I chose our own Costa Rican Honey, because of its many antioxidants, and its ability to scavenge for free radicals which helps in reversing damage done to your skin. Lastly, it does not dry out your skin, like many soaps do, so it can and should be used daily.
Try this unique mix for an UBER rich facial mask and AHA scrub: 1 Tbs. Papaya Facial Renewing Peel mixed with 1 Tsp. of Citrus Seaweek Recovery Mask. Blend until smooth; apply to face, neck and décolletage. Leave for 20 minutes, scrub and rinse. Follow with our Ylang-Ylang Miracle Cream.
The Papaya Facial Renewing Polish uses our “organic” Costa Rican Honey base. Honey is known to promote new tissue growth via bee pollen, propolis, and other components that stimulate the growth of new skin. Honey, in general makes a great exfoliate. It contains gluconic acid, a mild AHA that assists in shedding layers of dead skin, increasing skin elasticity, balancing out oily skin, stimulating collagen production, and minimizes lines and wrinkles, making you look younger! WOW.

Luminous Ingredient - Honey (Organic Costa Rican)
In Costa Rica, the raw cultivation of honey can be dated back to more than thousands of years ago, beginning with the Bribri and Cabécares tribes .There are around 10’000 Cabecares, who still preserve their language, natural medicine and patrimonial .They have a rich corpus of stories and legends, and many beautiful rituals whose medicinal and ceremonial protocols still maintain the traditional use of raw honey.
Raw honey has a long shelf life because of its high sugar content and naturally occurring enzymes. In fact, some say raw honey can last indefinitely
We love using our Costa Rican organic raw honey in many of our products. A favorite use is in our ALMOND TANGERINE BODY POLISH. 80% of this hand made recipe is based in raw honey! Why? Research has shown that raw honey is an excellent treatment for scar tissue build up, due to its natural antibacterial properties and promotes new tissue growth.
Honey makes a great exfoliant. It contains mild alpha hydroxy acids, such as gluconic acid, making it easier to shed the build up layers of dead skin. These acids also increase elasticity, balance out oily skin, stimulate collagen production, and minimize lines and wrinkles, creating a luminous, smooth and brighter complexion.
Honey helps the skin hold moisture in. Honey contains amino acids, which help the skin retain its essential moisture. In addition, the sugar content in honey makes it an excellent humectant. So, apply a honey mask each day for moisturizing!
