It looks questionable, but I promise it's totally worth it. I've been seeing so many posts and articles about coffee face and body scrubs, that I wanted to try it out myself. I'm not a big spender on these types of products, so I decided to be handy with a few items I already have in my kitchen. All it took was three ingredients, avocado, coconut oil, and coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I used my husbands Nespresso Ristretto coffee capsules (after they were used to make coffee).
Half of a very ripe avocado
2 tbs of coconut oil
1/4 cup of coffee
Add all ingredients in a container, and mix with a fork.
Transfer to a jar that has a lid, so you can store it in the fridge. I'm giving it about 5 days tops.
I let the scrub sit in the fridge for a few hours before giving it a whirl. First try was on my face. I first cleansed with my usual Purpose face wash, dried my face, and then applied the scrub. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and then rinsed clean. My skin felt great after! What I love the most is that my face wasn't left feeling tight and over dry. It felt clean, but moisturized at the same time.
Second try, I used it as a body scrub. Also, amazing. It did get a little messy in the shower, so leave yourself a few extra minutes to rinse away the coffee grinds, but I will definitely be using this scrub on a weekly basis! The combination of the coffee grinds exfoliating your skin and the coconut oil and avocado moisturizing made my skin feel extra soft and especially healthy. I don't feel like I have to layer on the lotion after my shower.
Hope this was handy, let us know how it works for you!Tweet
