Exfoliating is one of those tasks I know I should be doing, but have never been able to commit to.
But when the weather started heating up and I realised my skin resembled that of a dehydrated snake’s, I decided to give it a go.
If I’m honest, those glamorous, fun Instagram coffee scrubs modelled by people wearing high cut bikinis intimidate me a bit. As someone who’s just finding her feet in the beauty world, I needed something cheap and easy I could add to my weekly chemist haul before investing in an expensive product.
Enter: Coffee Bar. It’s a coffee scrub… in a bar.
Because I am indeed a dry, scaly human, I gave it a crack to see how this budget friendly option holds up.
The freshly ground coffee smell hit me right in the nostrils when I opened the packaging up. I also got a whiff of caramel – you can try the coconut macchiato, vanilla latte and chocolate cappuccino variations too.
