I am a coffee addict. I may only have one mocha a day but I can barely survive without it. It is my treat to myself and represents a little bit of luxury. Last week I wrote how I was looking forward to some me-time this week to exfoliate prior to epilation.
I was thrilled to be sent Naturelle’s Royal Coffee Scrub Ylang Ylang to try out.
That’s right. An exfoliating scrub made with two types of coffee!
This version has the added bonus of including ylang ylang in the ingredients. This has a relaxing effect and can be used to relieve stress.
This product comes in a really subtle golden packet and is surprisingly heavy. I was unsure how much to use so estimated that it would be about a tablespoon for my legs.
I don’t know what I was expecting but it did look and smell just like coffee grounds (or soil), very natural and the fragrance was simply divine.
It was bizarre. Most of the powder ended up in the bath giving the impression that I was sitting in a bath of coffee. The smell was great 🙂 The mess was quickly washed away and left no stains on the bath or the exfoliating brush.
This product will keep going for ages so represents excellent value for money at only £9.95 per pack. Personally, I would have preferred a gel or paste to keep it adhered to my skin while exfoliating with the brush. With a glove, it was much more precise so that is how I will apply it in future. The packet is resealable which is a brilliant idea.
My skin felt a lot fresher after exfoliating with the coffee scrub and I really can’t wait to use it again soon. I have promised myself that I will try to make time for myself once a week and a scrub is a perfect way to relax and improve your body.
The coffee scrub also comes in a variety of other flavours such as chocolate orange and cinnamon vanilla which sound amazing!
