Amena Bean Papaya Enzyme Polish

I really like this polish. When it was sent to me I was kind of in the market for a scrubbie because my Clinique 7 Day Scrub had just ran out. I like to exfoliate at least twice a week. This came in the mail and I was so excited to try it.
I wouldn’t call it a scrub or an exfoliator after using it though, it’s much more refined and gentle than that. Polish describes it perfectly. It has a fresh citrusy scent which is pleasant and subtle. I used this 3-4 times a week and noticed immediate results. My skin felt softer, fresher and much less congested feeling.
Amena Bean describes this as:
Papaya Enzyme Polish
Refreshes your delicate skin. The special Linked Papain enzyme incorporated in this formula exfoliates and digests dead skin cells that can clog pores. Essential oils in this creamy polish help eliminate bacteria and refresh the senses. The cleansing ingredients are extremely mild and used mainly in baby products. Sugar in this formula has an exfoliating function. Lactic acid is also added to this formula.
I used this on freshly washed skin and left my face a little damp. I wish the instructions were a little clearer on that. I used this on not wet and not dry skin, but somewhere in between gave me the best results. If your skin is too wet, the polish will just swirl around and not be effective. If it’s too dry, this can hurt or feel scratchy and won’t spread well. I rinsed with cool water and used a toner to close my freshly polished pores. I was left with glowy, happy skin. The closest thing I would compare this to is Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. Which retails for $26 for 8fl oz. The only difference is the Philosophy is a cleanser and a polish, this is strictly a polish.

I would definitely repurchase this and think that for $5 (!!!!), this is a high quality product with very visible results.
Amena Bean is a local business who I like to support whenever I can. I've never tried one of her products that I haven't liked. I feel like they are very high quality products, especially considering her prices. I would not even mention them if I wasn't impressed by the products.
