best coffee scrubs in India

Winter is now gone and summer has already in its full glory. It is the time when you should take extra care of your skin and body. You all know how particular I am with my skincare routine. It has grown for the best with each passing day. From carefully choosing the right product and researching every ingredient that goes into the skin, I am extremely serious about it. The problem I face the most in this transitional time is dry and lifeless along with some tanning on my forehead. Coffee is one of my favourite ingredients that work wonders for these problems. It might not be the greatest of beverages but it certainly does take care of many of the skin concerns that we usually have like tanning, dryness, and skin-ageing. Recently, I have included VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub & Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask to my pamper skincare routine and they have so far been great for me.

I have been a fan of VLCC since I started using them when I was a teenager. I love how they choose their ingredients responsibly and delivers only natural, paraben-free products that are effective too.  The two products mentioned earlier have already become my favourites because of their efficacy and the ingredients that are natural and formulated for all skin types. Here is my detailed review of both.

VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub

VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub texture review

Coffee and sugar are two of my favourite ingredients for my scrubs. They are natural, effective and surprisingly gentle on the skin. Apart from being a great beverage, coffee is also known for its beauty benefits. The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate blood circulation which reduces puffiness or inflammation. It also works great to remove tanning, tighten and brighten the skin, improve skin texture, reducing wrinkles and signs of ageing.

Formulated with Arabica Coffee, Sugar Crystals & Himalayan Pink Salt, this product starts showing the results from its first use. It gently removes the dead cells from the surface and reveals the brighter looking skin lying underneath it instantly. It makes the skin smoother, brighter and softer. I easily get tanned on my forehead and my nose and the tan is the kind of patchy tan that we all hate. This scrub helps clear that out and evens out the complexion. If I have to rate it, I will give is a 9/10.

Price- ₹399 for 90g

Packaging- VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub comes in a white plastic tube with a flip open cap. The packaging is extremely sturdy and convenient to travel with.

Ingredients: Glycerine, Sugar Crystal, Coffea Arabica powder, Himalayan Pink Salt, Silica, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Perfume, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Benzoate, Triethylene Glycol

Texture, consistency & Smell- This scrub has a dark brown gel-like texture that is quite runny.  It feels a little sticky but is not at all difficult to work on to the skin. The product contains fine sugar crystals and coffee particles. It has got a mood-lifting aroma of freshly ground premium coffee.

How to Use- Take a sufficient quantity of scrub and apply on cleansed face. Scrub gently in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask

VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask review VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel off mask texture review

I don’t know how many of you would agree with me that peel-off masks are so damn satisfying. Imagine you have an event planned after the office or after a busy day in the kitchen. What would you need to glam yourself up in the shortest period of time? Of course, a peel-off mask! They are quick, they are efficient and most importantly very very relaxing and satisfying. Among the array of various peel-off masks available in the market, you’ll hardly find anything with such potent and premium ingredients as the Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask by VLCC. I love using this during my pamper days or weekends or if for the shortest glam-up regime to attending a special event. It turns any day into a spa day and I love that.

This mask spreads evenly on to the skin and turns into a peel-off mask from a gel-like formula within 15-20 minutes. It is also very easy and very neat to remove. It peels away the dirt and impurities from the pores and evens out the skin tone while rejuvenating it. The difference it makes is quite noticeable. It instantly brightens up the skin tone by clearing away all the dead cells and tanning off of the surface of your skin.

Price- ₹399 for 90g

Packaging- Same as the De-tan Exfoliating Scrub

Ingredients- Aqua, Isopropyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Glycerine, Coffea Arabica Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Lactic Acid, Caffeine, Perfume, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Aloe Vera Extract, Triethylene Glycol

Texture, consistency & Smell- The peel-off mask is a light-brown, gel-like texture that spreads evenly onto the skin. Similar to the Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub, this also smells exactly like coffee and that itself is very therapeutic.

How to Use- Wash face properly and pat dry with a soft towel. Apply Peel off mask evenly over your face avoiding eyebrows, eyes & lips (do not apply a very thin layer). Let it dry for 20-25 minutes. Peel Off from the forehead in a downward direction towards the chin & wash off. For best results, use at least once a week.

You are advised to do a patch test before using any of these.

Hello, everyone. Hope you all are doing great. Today’s post is a review of the Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub. Before starting off, I just want to put a disclaimer that this post is in no means sponsored or under a collaboration. I have used Mamaearth products in the past and I feel that this brand needs more exposure than what it gets right now. I have been using this particular scrub for the past couple of weeks and I thought it’s just the right time to share my views with you all. Now, let’s jump straight into the review. 

Scrubbing is one of the most essential parts of my skincare routine. I like to scrub my face every two days because I think that’s what works for me the best. Generally, it is advised to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. I also like to scrub my face before and after shaving and also after removing my makeup. Scrubbing my face after makeup has proved to be very beneficial for my skin. It helps keep the breakouts at bay.

Packaging

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub comes in a classic plastic tube packaging. The flip-open lid is quite secure and spill-proof. Overall, I found the packaging very sturdy and sleek. You can easily carry it with you.

Also, all the information about this product is written on the tube, including ingredients and manufacturing and expiry dates which I found really handy.

Texture & Smell

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub has a very creamy texture. It’s loaded with micro-exfoliating particles. The consistency is not very thick or not to thin thus it’s quite easy to work with it.  The thickness of the product is just perfect so no need to mix it with water. 

The smell is exactly like exotic coffee and a bit of cocoa. Quite obvious, right? The smell actually helps in calming my senses to some extent. Using it in the mornings can actually help you wake up. I find it exclusively great or me as I am a coffee lover. The scent is quite raw and not at all chemical-like. The best thing about the scent is that it’s not very strong or overpowering. It’s mild and relaxing.

My Experience with MamaEarth Coco Face Scrub

Scrubs are one of my favourite skincare steps. I love this particular product for several reasons.

  • Firstly, this is a very mild exfoliator. The granules are loosely packed and are not very abrasive. That’s why it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. My skin has been acting up lately. It gets bumpy and sometimes sensitive. This scrub doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The second thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t make the skin dry or stretchy. I have used many scrubs in the past and most of them had a tendency to make your skin look and feel dehydrated. Gladly, this one doesn’t. Rather it keeps the skin moisturized even after cleansing it thoroughly. The shea butter in it makes sure your skin is well-nourished and hydrated. This results in a soft and supple skin every time you use this scrub.
  • The aroma of this is another thing about this scrub that I love. The coffee and cocoa smell makes your mornings even more energetic and also help you relax on your tougher days. 

Overall, I found this product very impressive and effective. It gently exfoliates the dead cells off of the skin leaving it nourished and hydrated. It also effectively removes blackheads too. The skin feels soft and smooth after application which I really like. Although this product is a little on the expensive side I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a 100% Indian, natural, chemical-free and hydrating exfoliator. #VocalforLocal

 Hey dolls, hope you all are doing good. I just noticed that I have not posted any product reviews for a long time. So, here is one for you. I have been planning to review a body scrub for so long and now here it is. Today, I am going to review a very famous coffee body scrub from one of my favourite skincare brands that is Gia Bath & Body Works. If you are following my blog for a long time then you would know that I have reviewed their soaps once on my blog. If you have not read that post, check it now here.
Coffee may not be good for your health but it is really good for your skin. Coffee has the power to reduce tan and exfoliate efficiently. I have always wanted to make a DIY coffee scrub but I failed several times due to my laziness (guilty as charged). But, my wish came true when I found out a jar of the delicious-smelling Coffee Body Polish hiding in my Gia Bath & Body Works products. Gayatri, the owner of Gia Bath & Body Works is too kind to send a freebie with the purchased products. I am really thankful to her for she chose just the right product to surprise me. Thank you, Gayatri di 😀
Now, let’s jump into the review. Let me tell you first that I have been using the Gia Bath & Body Works Coffee Body Polish since April and loving it since my very first use.

The product comes in the plastic jar with an aluminium screw lid which is totally spill-proof. The label mentioning the name of the product, ingredients and price is attached to the jar. The appearance of the product states its handmade attribute. The sturdy plastic packaging makes it travel-friendly. The scrub is very sticky in texture. It smells of real coffee. The moment the whiff enters your nose you immediately know that you have spent on the right product. The Gia Bath & Body Works Coffee Body Polish is high in consistency thus need to be mixed with little water in order to apply evenly all over the body. Because of the intense consistency, a little amount of the product is enough for my entire body. The fragrance lingers for a long period of time which is a bonus for me.

Price: 590 INR for 150gm

The gentle yet effective sugar granules help scour out the dry skin making the skin really soft and smooth. The scrub is not harsh on your skin at all. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my normal skin. I have not experienced any type of skin allergy or side effects on my skin so far. 150 grams of product is priced 590/- which I think is totally fair for a handmade product. I have been using it for 2 months for twice a week and I think I have only finished up 30% of the product so far. So, this is absolutely a smart investment.

I am in love with this product since I started using it. When it comes to skincare we all need something that contains the right ingredients that prove to be beneficial for your skin. Gia Bath & Body works is such a brand that I can completely rely on. I would definitely suggest you to buy this scrub and to try out yourself. You can buy from their website or you can contact them on their Facebook Page to order directly or for any queries.

I hope if found this review helpful. Write in the comments if you have used any of the Gia Bath & Body Works products and why you love them. Comment below telling which is your favourite body polish/scrub so far.  I will be back again with a new post soon. Till then be safe & keep smiling!
