My Review of MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub:
Having tried many body scrubs, both high-end and drugstore ones, I can say with certainty that this product is of very good quality. It delivers on its claims and is a terrific exfoliant. The results are visible from the first time it is used. The alluring aroma of coffee is undoubtedly a major plus point for those who love the aroma of coffee. Here’s what I liked about the product:
As a body scrub, it does what it is supposed to do, it removes dead skin cells from your body. It also removes impurities and tan and polishes the skin. The granules are perfectly sized and do not irritate the skin. As with any scrub, it is advisable to use this only twice a week as excessive exfoliation is not good for your skin.
Many scrubs that I have used in the past have dried out my skin terribly. The MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub was a pleasant change in this aspect. My skin felt smooth, moisturised and almost buttery to touch. However, after the use of any scrub, I generally follow it up with my favourite body butter for amazing results.
The scrub smells exactly like coffee. The aroma wafts from the product as you apply it and it lingers in the shower giving you the feeling of being enveloped by a coffee bubble. The coffee scent woke me up immediately and I felt extremely refreshed after using this scrub.
This was something I found very surprising. The scrub on application felt cold like it was kept in the refrigerator for some time. It gave a very pleasant feeling and I particularly enjoyed this sensation.
