True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish that came in my December Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website].

Petit Vour December 2018

Wake up your shower routine and revive dry and dull skin with a blissful aromatic blend of Nicaraguan coffee beans, organic sugar, cold-pressed moringa and a sweet and spicy essential oil blend.   

Fresh Nicaraguan coffee beans, rich in caffeine, firm and tighten skin and gently exfoliate to invite the healthy production of new skin cells.

Moringa is rich in zeatin, known for stimulating cell division, growth, and delaying aging of cells. Moringa is packed with crucial fatty acids and antioxidants that the fight free radicals that cause premature aging.

I love body scrubs, so I was pretty happy to see one in my December box. This is a coffee and sugar based scrub, but isn’t as messy as some coffee scrubs tend to be. The scent is interesting – you can smell the coffee of course, but it also smells of Rosemary and Peppermint – so very bright and uplifting – perfect for cold, dark mornings!

Let’s take a look at the ingredients:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Coffea Arabica (Vega Farmer Roasted Coffee), Sucrose (Sugar), Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Essential Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil. 

Even though I tend to avoid products with tea tree oil as it often causes a reaction on my sensitive skin, the concentration in this scrub must be fairly low as it didn’t trigger me at all, thankfully.

I don’t think that the sample size is big enough to gain benefits of firming and tightening of the skin, but it does exfoliate really well and doesn’t leave a gritty or greasy feeling when rinsed off.

Do you like coffee based body scrubs? I mostly prefer sugar or salt based body scrubs.

Thanks for reading, have a beautiful day!

Joik Uplifting Coffee Body Scrub Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review of another treat from Joik that I bought for myself in Estonia – the Uplifting Coffee Body Scrub. (info in italics taken from the Joik website)

Joik Uplifting Coffee Body Scrub

Uplifting body scrub is like a cup of good strong coffee! Aromatic coffee scent invigorates senses while ground coffee beans and brown sugar promote blood circulation, remove dead skin cells and help skin to renew and regenerate. Nourishing cocoa butter, shea butter and olive oil soften skin leaving it smooth and velvety. Caffeine in ground coffee beans helps to fight cellulite. In contact with warm water the scrub turns into milky lotion and is easy to wash off. Skin is moisturised, but not greasy.

JOIK scrubs do not contain any environment and water burdening plastic particles.  100% natural and/or Ecocert ingredients.

I love body scrubs, and this one is definitely a good one! It isn’t as messy as most coffee scrubs, though I’m not entirely sure why. The scrub mostly just smells like coffee, but if you have a sensitive nose, you should be able to smell the cocoa and shea butters. The Uplifting Coffee Body Scrub really does make my skin feel smooth and hydrated and not at all greasy.

Naturelle Cosmetics Organic & Cruelty Free Review (Part 2)

Hello, hello!

This is the final part of my Naturelle Cosmetics review. Part 1 is here.

I was contacted by Naturelle Cosmetics, a UK based company that sells organic and cruelty free skincare, bodycare, haircare and cosmetic products. Today I’m reviewing one of their Royal Coffee Scrubs, in the Cinnamon Vanilla scent.

Naturelle Cosmetics - Royal Coffee Scrub

The scrubs are available in six different scents: Chocolate Orange, Cinnamon Vanilla, Coconut, Lavender Mint, Tea Tree and Ylang Ylang.

Apart from your daily cup of coffee, what else do you know about coffee? Do you know that it have amazing benefits for your skin? Yes, this is true. Coffee scrubs have been on the rise in the recent years as natural skin treatments. […] The Coffee Scrub is a combination of various natural ingredients that will definitely rejuvenate your skin. Among the main components include the seed powder from both coffee Arabica and Coffee Robusta which are the two main varieties of coffee. To make a coffee scrub from the powders, avocado, cinnamon and jojoba oils are added. Almond seeds are also added to bring in its antioxidant properties while vanilla brings in the flavor. All these ingredients are natural, and thus they are not associated with harmful side effects. The Naturelle Cosmetics’ Cinnamon Vanilla will have numerous benefits to your skin.

These benefits include: minimized cellulite, skin brightening, exfoliation, and improved circulation.

I love body scrubs, but I have only ever used sugar and salt based scrubs so this was a completely new experience for me! Upon opening the package, my bathroom smelled like coffee with cinnamon and vanilla. Very uplifting and energizing!

It looked so messy when my skin was covered in the coffee scrub, but once rinsed off, my skin was soft and smooth.  The Royal Coffee Scrub does make a bit of a mess in the bottom of the shower / tub, but nothing that a couple of splashes of water can’t fix.

Do you like coffee scrubs?
