Renewing Polish // Renewed

Renewing Polish, we love you. The gooey formula that makes us admire our complexion the second you've washed it off.  The results are undeniable.  Smooth, brand new, fresh skin.  The formulation is one of the originals from 2009. True and tested, tested and true.  So, how could we possibly make it better? 
When we learned about the power behind raw buckwheat honey we had to test it.  And we did so for nearly a year. 
What we found out 
Buckwheat honey is a gorgeously delicious, full-bodied polyphenol-rich dark honey endowed with notable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  It has been clinically compared to manuka honey, in some instances surpassing its healing and antioxidant activity.   This clinical study, also shows buckwheat exhibiting better absorption rate over manuka. So, the more we learned, the more we thought that Raw Buckwheat Honey deserves some spotlight. And, it's in our own Pacific Northwest backyard. 
What changed?
Renewing Polish will remain 100% true to its original formula with the substitute of this powerhouse superfood in its raw form. One thing to note is the scent. If you loved the old scent, this scent... the dark molasses, caramel-like notes mixed with rich brown sugar and lemon... It simply must be experienced.
Summer essential

This formulation is the one product that will save your skin from dry patches, sun kisses (buy a hat!) and post blemish marks.  Always follow with a toner and a nourishing oil
