Mandarin Mecca Coffee Scrub / Lustre Restoring Body + Face Exfoliant
A luxuriously complex, non-abrasive mess to restore lustre and bounce to thighs, butts and face.
Made with used coffee grounds, the beautifully fragrant and velvet soft waste that usually gets thrown out after extraction. The coffee left overs are from a roast called ‘Minani Anastase’, with the green beans sourced directly from the grower in the Rushashi district, Rwanda, by our friend and @meccacoffee owner Paul Geshos.
I’m a decaf coffee girl, and my nervous system can’t deal with the skin-irritating, hyper-stimulating full blast caffeine content in coffee scrubs, so in my humble experience, the low residual amount of caffeine in coffee waste is a gently effective way to deliver all the benefits of a good coffee scrub without the hardcore down sides. Because it contains velvet soft coconut sugar instead of hard crystal edged brown sugar, this scrub is gentle enough to use on my face and body without micro tearing.
For women and men of all skin types. All ages. Benefits mature, acne prone, eczema beaten and sensitive skin especially
I like to do this once a week, and, as usual with our compositions, you only need little – a 10ml amount, approximately the size of a small chestnut, is heaps.
Body scrub: run the shower, grab a chestnut size piece of scrub, hop under the shower to get your body and face wet and start by gently by massaging the scrub into thighs and butt, increase to a vigorous rub in circular motion. Rub the leftover from your hands over your face. Massage body and face for as long as you like, rinse off.
Face exfoliation: wet your face and massage a hazelnut size amount into the skin for a few minutes. Rinse, dry, moisturize with precious face oil.
Dark under eye circle treatment: very gently dab a tiny amount just under your eyes without rubbing, let sit for 3-4 minutes and gingerly wash of without rubbing or scrubbing the delicate skin around your eyes. Works wonders.
Hair treatment: if you are experiencing menopause-related hair loss, or thinning of your hair, rub your coffee scrub-smeared hands over your scalp and let the coffee oil sit there while you’re exfoliating your butt. Shampoo/condition/rinse as per usual.
One 215 ml jar holds about 15 applications for body + face, about 30 for face only.
The coffee scent fades from your skin quickly. Because of the oils in the scrub you don’t really need body oil, but go ahead and oil up if you want to. Our luxurious body oil complements this scrub like a dream.
