When you’re not polishing, kick back and relax with Grand Central Beauty’s S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Mask.

Grand Central Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

This jack-of-all-trades skin polisher leaves no cell unturned in the pursuit of beautiful skin. The botanical-infused liquid exfoliates, peels, tones, and hydrates skin all at once—and does it all without water too. And the fact that it’s rinse-optional means that we can use it whenever, wherever for instant complexion renewal.

How it Works

This polisher is a founding step of the brand’s S.M.A.R.T. system—that stands for Smooths, Moisturizes, Anti-Aging, Redness-Reducing, and Tones. Yep, it does them all. A blend of fruit extracts—shout-out to watermelon, orange, and lemon—tones and hydrates skin while lifting away the dull, dead bits. Meanwhile, the waterless formula uses a built-in neutralizer to help roll away impurities—which you can easily brush or wipe off.

How to Use

Massage a dime-sized amount of liquid into clean, dry skin for 30 seconds (until it beads up on your skin). Rinse or wipe clean.

Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Saccharum Officialis (Sugar Cane) Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon )Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Opunita Ficus-Indica (Napol Cactus) Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Paeonia Abiflora Root Extract, Fragrance (Parfum), Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylglycerin.

ok product

This was an ok polisher although I can't really say I saw much of a difference in my skin after using this product. I preferred to wipe the residue off after use versus leaving it to dry as it tended to feel sticky.

Nice polisher

I used this a few times without rinsing afterwards, and it was nice, but nothing special I thought. Also, you still had to wipe your face off pretty well with a towel if you don't use water and it forms little gooey beads that were somewhat difficult to get all the way off. I just didn't see anything really special about it, but I haven't tried it with rinsing with water.

perfection of skin

All I can say is that my skin felt AMAZING after using this product. I was so sad after the small sample was gone... I needed to order this product. It also made me happy to know that there were so many natural ingredients in the product.

Interesting texture

i like the product, I feel the difference when I use, but my skin gets a little dry after I apply the product. Not sure if that's one of the purposes of the product. Would use it again but is not something I am currently looking for to purchase.

no

I don't even understand what the point of this product is. when i used it, i got the little beads stuck to my face and the only way to get them off was to wash it like 2 or 3 times.

Polisher with Power

This polisher does a great job of exfoliating. After using it only a few times I can see a noticeable difference. My skin is smoother, less dry, and brighter. Easy to use at home or on the go.

Rinse Optional?

Overall I'm not really sure what this product did...besides make my face oily and shiny. Had to wash/rinse face within the hour after using!

Such a great moisturizer
Purchased

I received this as a tester and it is absolutely worth the money! Doesn't dry out my face... Lasts a long time because a little goes a long way. It has helped my skin out a lot with the winter being present.
