I’ve another beauty product from Art Naturals which was sent to me for review last week. This time it is their Arabica Coffee Scrub which looks fab and smells absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I opened the tub I got a lovely whiff of rich, luxurious, aromatic coffee and it smells amazing enough to eat. I would imagine you could eat it too as the ingredients are simple enough, organic, natural and pure. (Please don’t try to eat it, just incase, LOL!)
The ingredients are:
- Dead Sea Salt
- Demeria Sugar
- Organic Kona Coffee
- Organic Olive Oil
- Organic Sweet Almond Oil
- Organic Grape Seed Oil
- Coffee Arabica Seed Oil
- Organic Shea Butter
- Cacao Powder
- Coconut Shaving
How to use?
‘Gently massage scrub in a circular motion for a minute or two in the shower, rinse well. Can be used as a full body scrub. Avoid using around delicate eye area. For best results use every 3-4 days.’
I have psoriasis so my skin was very dry before I started the scrub especially my elbows, knees and ankles where there were a few odd patches. My psoriasis is very mild at the moment thankfully but my skin has been quite rough to touch the past few weeks because I have used nothing but coal-tar soap and water. I get a lot of products sent to me to review so sometimes I like to have a break from trying out any new products. So it has been about two weeks now since I had anything on my skin and it has not been as silky smooth or soft.
I was surprised at how smooth and silky my skin felt after using the Arabica Coffee Scrub. It really does work and after using it only once I noticed a big difference in my skin and it got softer and smoother after each use.
The caffeine in the coffee increases blood flow and reduces the appearance of blemishes, spots, cellulite whilst the Dead Sea Salt and Demera Sugar has acted like a gentle abrasive which has helped remove a build up of dead skin cells and dry skin and it has left my skin softer. Thanks to the blend of organic oils, cacao and coconut shavings in the scrub, my skin is left protected, moisturised and so god damn silky. So not only is my skin being exfoliated but nourished and protected too. I have been moisturising my skin afterwards with some fractioned coconut oil.
Luckily my psoriasis is very mild right now, so the scrub only stung a little on the odd patches of psoriasis. So if you do have severe psoriasis or eczema you will feel a little stinging thanks to the Dead Sea Salt, but it is nothing to worry about. Dead Sea Salt is probably one of the best things you can use on your skin. If you have been blessed with normal/average skin, you wont feel any stinging at all.
What I especially love about the scrub is the natural and kind ingredients, there are no harsh, unnecessary chemicals added to the scrub and no artificial fragrance that will irritate or annoy my skin like most exfoliators do. Also, I think you will get about 10 full body scrubs out of one 250 ml tub, maybe more if you use less product. I have used mine on five occasions and my tub is half empty so you do get a bit of use out of one tub. Lastly, I love how the scrub is cruelty free. No cute little animals were harmed so that will do me!
I will be buying this again definitely, I will treat myself now and again and maybe I will try my hand at making my own homemade Coffee Scrub, which would be easy to do and would defo be right up my street!
All Skin Types, Cellulite, Eczema, Stretch Marks, Age Spots, Varicose Veins, Psoriasis etc…
