Did you know that coffee is amazing when used in skincare?
The scent of fresh coffee is very calming, uplifting and anti-depressant. The caffeic acids in coffee beans have anti-inflammatory properties and they help to reduce puffiness, boost collagen and promote healthy skin. Coffee is also a rich source of vit, B3 (niacin) and because it will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your skin, it will help smooth wrinkles and fight those fine lines.
Have you ever used coffee in your skincare routine? If you didn't yet you should because The Body Shop made this absolutely amazing face mask with Nicaraguan coffee, shea and cocoa butter, 100% vegan. Just looks at this beautiful texture!
This mask has gently exfoliating coffee bean particles from Community Trade Nicaraguan coffee, organic cane sugar from Paraguay, Community Trade sesame oil, Community Trade shea and cocoa butter from Ghana. The texture is rich, grainy and gluey but very pleasant to use, it warms very gently in contact with skin and gives a delicate exfoliation. It doesn't dry up and its very easy to wash it off.
The scent is alluring and uplifting, a blend of fresh coffee with chocolate notes- sounds like a dream for every coffee lover, right ?
After use, the skin feels awaken, cleared of impurities, dicongested and it looks more radiant.I also noticed that its very calming and helps to reduce redresses.
I love this mask, it feels very lush and whenever I use it ( 2 or 3 times a week) it puts me in a really good mood and makes my skin looks flawless.
