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.

Love the idea
Sampled

I love the idea of a quick little peel that doesn't need a rinse but in reality, you'll probably have to rinse unless you want your skin slightly tacky with little globs of product stuck to it. Sample size is generous and my skin did feel smoother after using it.

Good product
Sampled

I like using this after I wash my face and before I put on lotions. It smooths the skin and helps even out areas.

Good idea, not a great product
Sampled

I like the idea of polishing all your impurities away without rinsing or anything... But those little leftover beads are so annoying. The directions say you can just wipe them away -- yeah right. They stick to everything!! Without rinsing, my face feels smooth but slightly sticky. When I do rinse, my face does feel refreshed and exfoliated without any harsh scrubbing needed. I enjoy using this product, but I recommend you try it out right before a shower!

My face didn't like this
Sampled

When reading about the product, I was excited to try it out. But I found that it left my face feeling and looking drier than usual, but it probably has a different effect for everyone!

Didnt make much of a difference
Sampled

This product didnt make much of a difference to my skin but I did like the smell. Unfortunately, because I didn't find it was very effective, I think i will be sticking with what i normally used. sample size was very generous

Just weird
Sampled

Really did not see any results, or impact in using this product. The texture was weird...rolling balls of product or skin. Yucky, either way.

S.K.I.N.

Finally got around to using my S.K.I.N. Polisher. I enjoyed it the first time around. Gave my skin a great natural glow, but the second use cause my skin to break out

This didn't seem to do much good, it actually felt like it dried my skin out a little - although thats not hard to do with my skin. Not for me!

What does it do again?

Wasn't very impressed by the product. I know its supposed to have some residue but it was a real turn off for me.
