Review: The Nature’s Co Coffee Scrub

The Nature’s Co is a great brand for those looking for completely vegan products. Their entire product range is cruelty free, environmentally friendly and PETA certified. Their product range is organized around the five elements of the Earth, whichd are called Atmospure, Starrize, Foressence, Earthborne and Aquaspark.

The product label states that The Nature’s Co Coffee Scrub belongs to their Starrize range. It is suitable for all skin types. It is branded as one of the bestselling products from their range. It comes in a transparent tube with easy-to-handle flip-flop cap, travel friendly.


Ingredients: Coffee extract; Coffee powder; Coffee grits; Vegetable Glycerin; Olive oil.

ADVANTAGES: Antioxidants – Most of us know that coffee is a great source of antioxidants. The caffeine in coffee acts as the antioxidant and in skin care, it helps by neutralizing the effects of free radicals on the inner layer of skin.  Damage to the inner layer results in age spots and wrinkles. The antioxidant is absorbed by the skin and thus prevents in premature aging.

Exfoliation – coffee scrubs are made with coarse grounds with salt/sugar.  This helps in proper removal of the dead skin.
Blood flow – caffeine increases the blood flow in skin and may reduce appearance of cellulite.
Exfoliates skin; Removes the upper, dead layer of skin; Anti-microbial & antioxidant; Gives a healthy and instant glow.

HOW TO USE: Wet your face and neck, massage using light circular motions. Rinse off and pat skin dry. Can be used daily. Go ahead and get addicted! 

CLAIMS BY THE COMPANY - Pamper the coffee lover in you with our invigorating Coffee Face Scrub. It is full of anti-microbial and antioxidant properties that sloughs dead skin, boosts circulation and imparts an instant radiant glow.

The most wonderful aspect of this product is its fragrance. It gives off the South Indian filter coffee fragrance which I absolutely adore. The scrub has an extremely creamy texture with coffee grits to be used for exfoliation. It is neither too thick nor too runny.


As someone who finds it extremely difficult to wake up in the morning and who craves coffee to get going, this face scrub gives me the much needed jolt to get moving for the day.

The product is creamy in texture and has got this coarse granules of coffee which cleans away your dead skin perfectly yet keeps moisture intact. My skin feels soft and supple and moisturised after scrubbing.  I have been using this scrub everyday after cleansing my face and follow this up with a splash of rose water and some moisturising cream. My skin feels squeaky clean and refreshed.

Would I Recommend This Product?

The coarse coffee grits effectively slough off the dead skin cells, while the glycerin and natural oil in the scrub moisturize the skin. The coffee face scrub not only felt great on my skin but it left my skin wonderfully soft, smooth, and radiant. Unlike other face scrubs available in the market; I did not feel the need for a separate skin tightening/moisturizing face mask after using this scrub.

RECOMMEND? Absolutely YES!  If the price (Rs 1086) is okay for you and you love the smell of coffee, you will definitely find yourself sniffing at it throughout the day! It’s a must-try product, with shelf life of 2 years, so a little goes a long way J

RATING- 5/5

Product Review - iGlory Fragrances

I recently got my hands on the iGlory roll-on fragrances. I got 3 of them -
1. Mount Frost,
2. Rose Oudh,
3. Tea Rose.

I tried finding them online. And they are available on ShopClues and Amazon.

What I liked : iGlory's 100% Original fragrances are encased in a most elegant gold-colored aluminum bottle, worthy of being flaunted. It is extremely travel-friendly, easy to carry in pockets and purses. They are long lasting, free of alcohol, gas and water. Perfect for everyday use.

Tea Rose - Unusual blend of fresh and floral, sweet with a woody sensuality that sparkles all day. Smells like rose and a lot like the Yardley's 'English Rose' range of perfume! Well, like a best friend you always want this close at hand, this can help you smell like flowers all day long.


Rose Oudh - Traditionally a masculine perfume, its appeal to women is indisputable. But, it is the fragrance I liked the least. It simply isn't my type, as it makes me feel dizzy due to its extra strong fragrance. I will use this one the least.


Mount Frost - Coolest roll on fragrance I have ever used. Ozonic and breezy with an undercurrent of irresistible Musk fragrance to enchant one and all. It's a fantasy perfume, a gateway to another world. It is a fresh fragrance that envelops you in its brightness all day. This one's my favorite. I will use this one the most.


Verdict: Overall, they are a long lasting bunch of fragrances. It is totally worth the money you pay. They have quite a wide range of Arabic & Floral perfumes. Easy to apply and light weight to carry everywhere you go - boxed in a contemporary packaging design to give you the "rich feel".

Definitely recommended.

P.S : I thank Dharni Shah (representing iGlory) for introducing me to them. All views are my own.

Beauty Hack : How To De-Tan Naturally

Hello Lovelies!

Recently, I went to Goa and I was constantly worried about the tanning. Although, I tied a scarf on my face while roaming in the sun, you are bound to get tanned when in Goa.

After I came back, I could feel my skin discolored and darker than usual.

To get rid of the ugly tan from my face and neck and to get back my earlier complexion, and revitalize the sun damaged skin cells, I tried the following steps –

1. Face Scrub – Mix salt, baking soda and honey! Apply and exfoliate for 1-2 minutes and wash off with water. Salt and honey are anti-inflammatory and reduce sun burns.

2. Face Massage – Papaya paste (2 table spoon), a slice of lemon.  This removes discoloration with Vitamin C.

3. Face Mask – Corn flour powder, yogurt/curd and cucumber juice. Mix well and apply.

I used it twice a week, and it was helpful. Try these 3 steps and see the difference now! :D
