I am a coffee lover, the aroma of a freshly made coffee in the morning always wakes me up for the day ahead. I have never used a coffee body scrub and have always been intrigued as to how effective they are, I couldn’t wait to try the Coffee and Honeycare Body Scrub!
Coffee and Honeycare are a UK brand who are focused on sustainability, sourcing high quality organic ingredients which benefit local communities and farmers in Africa. They are also cruelty free which I love!
The Body Scrub comes packaged in a re-sealable waterproof pouch, perfect to store and maintain its freshness. The packaging is bright and vibrant and put a smile on my face as soon as I saw it, bright colours always lift my mood! The Body Scrub promises to:
- Remove dry skin cells
- Leave your skin feeling smooth and soft
- Moisturiser and nourish your skin
The Body Scrub formula is 100% natural avoiding all nasties and skin irritants, it contains some skin loving ingredients including:
- Organic Coffee Granules – natural exfoliant and antioxidant
- Organic Raw Honey – for moisturisation, a natural antioxidant and anti inflammatory
- Brown Sugar – gentle exfoliant
- Jojoba Oil – protects the skin from loss of moisture
- Sweet Almond Oil – Natural source of Vitamins A and E
- Contains nuts – for those with allergies its formula does contain nuts
The dominating scent is coffee, if you are a coffee lover you will love the aroma!
The texture is thick and smooth, I was concerned it may feel abrasive however the granules are so fine And soft it is quite satisfying to touch! Once in contact with water it becomes a thinner consistency which is easy to apply and use. It feels lovely and gentle on my skin and causes no irritation.
I honestly expected the scrub to get quite messy in the shower!I need not have worried as a little goes a long way and I did not require much for it to be effective. Where the granules are so fine they rinse away easily resulting in a clean shower following – always a win! Personally I prefer to use scrubs in the shower, it is a personal preference and you can of course use the scrub in the bath!
The Body Scrub leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. It is a nourishing scrub which adds moisture to the skin which I love, a multitasker! I have been using the Body Scrub twice a week for a month and my skin is looking hydrated and healthy, perfect for summertime! The pouch contains 200g of product and it will last some time! I recommend giving the pouch a little shake and knead before use after a while to separate the coffee, as expected it will gather together however it separates easily doing this.
I love to use the scrub first thing in the morning it is the perfect wake me up, the aroma of the coffee gets my brain in gear for the day! I love how soft and smooth my skin feels and looks, Coffee and Honeycare Body Scrub has not disappointed!
Coffee and Honeycare are cruelty free! the Body Scrub (£17.95) is available directly from Coffee and Honeycare.
