Petal Polish Rose Face Mask Hack

Petal Polish Hack Feature

I received a small sample of Kani Botanical’s Petal Polish Rose Face Mask in a Petit Vour monthly box and really loved it! It smells amazing and works like a dream. Brown sugar gently exfoliates and a boatload of skin-friendly oils rejuvenate the skin in just ten minutes. The only down side? I did not love the price tag on the full size jar. $28 for 4 ounces. What the heck?! It is basically just sugar and oils. A very easy product to hack and customize at home.

This exfoliating and moisturizing mask would be perfect pre-Valentine’s day night. Follow up with this quick lip facial and an aphrodisiac-scented dry hair treatment.

This mask does include some pricey ingredients but it is still much cheaper in the long run than buying the Kani version. My cost for the ingredients used here was just $3.08, a nearly $25 savings off the Kani retail price. If you’re still concerned about the up front cost of buying these ingredients in bulk, you can make some minor adjustments to this flexible recipe.

The biggest offenders are frankincense and rose essential oils. They smell heavenly and work wonders for both dry and acne-prone skin so include them if possible. If you can’t shell out the money, these oils can be omitted. The mask will still exfoliate and moisturize well without them. If you have trouble finding any of the other oils in the recipe, you can easily replace them with equal amounts of any other light oil. You could use any of the non-essential oils listed in the recipe or whatever you have on hand. Olive oil or sweet almond oil would work fine.
