Board and Batten Begin Again Micro Facial Buff & Masque

Board and Batten Begin Again Micro Facial Buff & Masque

Size: 4.0 oz (118 ml)

Board and Batten Begin Again Micro Facial Buff & Masque lets you start the day with a fresh, smooth skin. This fragrance-free multi-tasker is a fine powder you mix with a bit of water for a gentle foaming cleanser and scrub, or combine with honey for an indulgent, moisturizing mask. It's an ideal gentle exfoliant for those with sensitive skin or anyone looking for a revitalizing organic scrub. Having been reviewed for a month and given a big thumbs-up by a trusted member of our community, we're confident that you'll be reaching for this natural cleanser and mask again and again.

Practically good enough to eat, Board and Batten has created this gentle exfoliating powder with organic ingredients harvested on their Florida farm. All organic corn starch, quinoa flour, oat flour, pineapple extract and apple extract are fabulously soothing yet exfoliating components of this double-duty product we're sure you'll love.

Tested for 30 days and approved by Kelly:
I was the winner of the Dare to Try for the Board and Batten Begin Again Micro Facial Buff and Masque and enjoyed using the product for the better part of the last month. This product has a very big name for something made of very simple and safe ingredients. I am 51 years old with fair combination skin and I am post- menopausal.

The product came in a nice glass container with a small opening from which you pour out the very light powdery dry formula. Awkward to use at first, but soon I was just pouring out about a teaspoon into the palm of my hand and adding water from the tap with ease. No idea how you would be able to complete the accurate measurements as described on the bottle as the mouth of the bottle is far too small to insert any kind of measuring scoop. The formula then formed a nice sudsy lather that I applied to my face.

After massaging onto my face it rinsed very clean without any noticeable residue. I do have to mention that this is probably the most gentle cleanser I have ever used, no noticeable "buff" and would often take a double cleanse to remove my sunscreen at the end of the day.

There are very few ingredients here. The product's base is corn starch with quinoa flour and oat flour (which can also be very soothing on skin) to lightly scrub away dirt. Coconut-based fatty acid sodium cocoyl isethionate acts as a surfactant and there's honey as well as a few organic fruit extracts to brighten skin. No preservatives or nasties!

For use as a mask, you mix honey instead of water with the powder and I did try this and immediately felt the firm and glow as it is definitely moisturizing, but the trade-off is the mess you now are faced with cleaning up. Best if you just get in the shower after this process!

No idea how to describe the scent other than wonderfully clean, certainly not offensive as there are no artificial ingredients in this product. There was no noticeable change in the texture or hyperpigmentation over the last month but it is my opinion that it is unreasonable to expect that of a cleanser anyway. This product has been fun to use!

    Thank you for thorough review Kelly. I cam across this brand and thought it intriguing. I did wonder about the "mix at home" part though. As I discovered the other day, corn starch, quinoa flour and oat flour are all great alternatives to talc: https://www.truthinaging.com/review/alternatives-to-talc

  • Organic Corn Starch
  • Organic Quinoa Flour
  • Organic Oat Flour
  • Honey
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
  • Organic Pineapple Fruit
  • Extract And Organic Apple Fruit Extract

For micro buff: mix 1/2 teaspoon of Begin Again with warm water to form a creamy paste. Massage onto damp face and neck using gentle, upward motions. Remove with warm water.

For a hydrating masque: mix 1 teaspoon of Begin Again with 2 teaspoons of honey Leave for 10-15 minutes. Remove with warm water.
