I’ve another skincare product from Art Naturals here who are a natural skincare brand based in the US although they do sell their products worldwide. All of the products they sell are cruelty free, natural and contain no harsh ingredients. Art Naturals have kindly gifted me the Arabica Coffee Scrub which looks good and smells absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I opened the tub I got a lovely whiff of rich, luxurious coffee and it smells good enough to eat. I would imagine you could eat it too as the ingredients are simple, organic, natural and pure.
(Please don’t try to eat it, just incase, LOL!)
ABOUT: ”Wake up sleepy skin with ArtNaturals’ Arabica Coffee Body Scrub! Once or twice a week, get your morning commutin’ as the invigorating properties of caffeine and cacao extract join forces with the exfoliating properties of coffee grounds and Dead Sea Salt. Add in the calm of olive and sweet almond oil plus shea butter and you’re ready to fight traffic and look fabulous. Our 100 percent natural Coffee Scrub revs up facial skin to reduce age spots and even out skin tone, while it helps heal acne, rosacea and eczema as it exfoliates. Dead Sea salts combine with Kona coffee, rich in caffeine. Caffeine’s antioxidants fight free radicals, reducing the appearance of the dreaded cellulite on legs, arms, tummy, and bottom. The powerful antioxidants also help rid skin of bacteria and harmful chemicals while reducing swelling and puffiness.” – Art Naturals
INGREDIENTS: 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.’
VERDICT: I have psoriasis so my skin was very dry before I started using the scrub – especially my elbows, knees and ankles. Luckily my psoriasis is very mild at the moment and not as bad as it used to be but my skin has still been quite rough to touch and lacking in moisture. The last month or so I have used absolutely nothing but a gentle soap on my skin. I get a lot of skincare products sent to me to review, so every now and again I like to give my skin a break and quit skincare altogether. So this is the first product I have used on my skin in ages and I’ve been using it every day for the past week when I bathe or shower. I noticed results after only using the scrub once and I was literally in awe at how moisturised my skin was afterwards. I’ve also been using the scrub on my face too and my complexion is looking good. Because the scrub contains Dead Sea Salt, it did sting my psoriasis a little bit when I first applied it to my skin but it was bearable and nothing to worry about. In my opinion, Dead Sea Salt is probably the best thing you can use for psoriasis along with Bentonite Clay and my psoriasis has improved a-lot since I’ve been using this scrub – it looks like it could be clearing up anytime soon! I will continue using this scrub and will def be repurchasing when I run out. 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.
THOUGHTS: I think the scrub is an absolute perfect, 10/10 skincare product and not only does it help to clear up psoriasis it also works for acne, age spots, cellulite, eczema, stretch marks and varicose veins too. I love my natural, cruelty-free skincare products and the Arabica Coffee Scrub is up one of my faves as it has not been tested on animals and it is made with all natural, kind and gentle ingredients – there are no harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients in the scrub so it won’t irritate my sensitive skin or worsen my psoriasis. 1 million percent recommend it!
DISCLOSURE: This product was gifted to me for review purposes.
WHERE TO BUY: You can buy the Arabica Coffee Scrub HERE for £33. It was priced at £12.95 back in 2016 but it seems to have increased dramatically since.
