If there’s one thing I can get behind, it’s a really good body scrub. Even better if it’s made using all-natural ingredients and comes in gorgeous packaging. Needless to say, when Kahve Coconut Matcha Revive Body Scub (R280) landed on my beauty desk, I was sold.
This luxurious body scrub contains Japanese Matcha and virgin coconut oil, along with a slew of natural, anti-oxidant rich ingredients (think African melon oil and jojoba oil, to name a few), to slough away dead skin cells, soften your skin, and leave you glowing from top to toes.
Now I’ll admit that I’m not a huge matcha fan, but when it comes to matcha for my body, I’m all in! This scrub smells heavenly, and the fine, gritty texture makes for a super-gentle buff and polish that doesn’t leave your skin feeling like it’s been scrubbed raw. The ‘Revive’ scrub is described as ideal for post-beach and sun-kissed skin, so it’s the perfect holiday companion. It’s also said to be perfect for damaged, tired, and stressed skin, which really appealed to me – especially at this time of year!
If you’re a coffee addict, like me, you’ll love Kahve Coffee Cinnamon Enliven Body Scrub (R280), which is made using jojoba oil, avocado oil, and natural Helianthus Annuus seed oil, along with coffee Robusta grounds and fine sucrose beads for an invigorating scrub. I haven’t tried this scrub yet, but it’s high on my Christmas wish list, especially after reading that it boasts toning and anti-cellulite properties. It’s recommended for use first thing in the morning, and is even said to temporarily improve the appearance of varicose veins.
Regardless of whether you’ve opted for the Coffee Cinnamon or Coconut Matcha variant, it’s recommended that you leave the scrub on your skin for 2 – 5 minutes after scrubbing to allow the ingredients to penetrate the skin and work their magic before rinsing.
I’ve been using the Coconut Matcha scrub every two or three days, and I love how soft, smooth, and moisturised my skin feels as a result. I’ve probably got another 2 uses left in my sachet, and I’m dreading the day it finishes. (And on that note – have I mentioned how clever the packaging is? It comes in a resealable, waterproof pouch that’s much like the coffee pouches you’d see on the supermarket shelves. So stunning!)
