Review // Kani Botanicals Petal Polish
The question for people is usually Manual or Chemical Exfoliation. Most times people pick one and become anti the other. — I don’t understand this.
Both types of exfoliation are great options and can be useful in different situations. I love to use chemical exfoliations daily, but whenever I feel like my skin is a little rough or has a build-up of skin, I love going in with a manual exfoliant.
One of my favorite exfoliants is the Kani Botanicals Petal Polish. I tried this product a year or two ago and it instantly became a favorite. I am not the biggest fan of roses, but this has a beautiful mild smell that makes this product intoxicating to use.
I have oily skin that can be very dehydrated. My skin can have dry patches and become flaky. I use Manual Exfoliation whenever I feel like my skin feels a little rough. When I use a manual exfoliant, I like something that is going to give me a GOOD exfoliation. No weak ‘mild’ exfoliation here. The reason I am using a manual exfoliation is to do something that a chemical exfoliation can’t. The Petal Polish is great to loosen any dead skin and slough it away because it has a thick grainy texture.
Not only does Petal Polish do a great job at exfoliation, but it also doubles as a mask, leaving you with soft moisturized skin because there are great butter/oils in the ingredient list.
Bulgarian Rose Oil: Anti-inflammatory, Antioxidants, Refines texture
Carrot Seed Oil: Vitamin A, Anti-aging (protects against free radicals)

Shea Butter: Vitamin A, E, & F, Moisturizing and anti-inflammatory
Frankincense Oil: Fights wrinkles and acne
Vitamin E: Antioxidant, reduces free radicals
How to Use
There are two ways I like to use the Kani Botanicals Petal Polish.
The first is to use the Petal Polish as a mask. I will spread a layer over my face leaving it for 10 minutes. The glycolic acid in the brown sugar and the antioxidants in the rose oil make a great couple to chemically break down dead skin. Once it has sat on my face, I will massage the product into my face sloughing away all of the dry skin.
The second way I like to use this product is as a traditional exfoliator. If I’m in a hurry, I will take a little bit of product and massage it into my skin for 30 seconds to a minute.
This is a great exfoliator for people who love a good scrub. This smells like heaven, works like a charm, and keeps skin feeling smooth. This product has never given me issues with breakouts even though it contains some ingredients that Skin Carisma categorizes as not great for oily skin like Shea butter and primrose.
I think the price for this is great considering is it can double as an exfoliator and a mask. I don’t think you will be disappointed!
