I’m a coffee addict and anything that has coffee in it just makes my day (sipping on to Cafe Mocha while penning down this post :P). We have all read, about how coffee can really regenerate and work on skin by firming, nourishing and uplifting the skin. Winters can be pretty harsh in most parts of the world but here in the UAE, this year has been an exception. It is still pretty cold out here for us middle-easterners where the temperature goes down to 17-15 degrees C mid Feb. The skin looks quite dull and flaky and I’m always on the hunt for products that are natural and that contain essential oils. Oils work like magic on the skin in dry weather conditions and gets sucked up by the skin in no time like – that is all what the skin needed!
Svelta Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub contains natural ingredients and perhaps that is the reason why I wanted to try it out in the first place. Coffee and sugar make it for a brilliant scrub combination along with vitamin E, olive and almond oil. Coffee is known to minimize and tone the appearance of cellulite. It also contains cardamom for that extra bit of fragrance that is known to be seductive.
Cardamom is also known to have a time long association with love affairs and is called’ the queen of spices’. Fact – It is the third most expensive spice in the world! WOAH! And, it is said that Cleopatra burnt cardamom incense whenever Marc Anthony visited her.
Application: Use it on moist skin and take a spoonful to start with and you can always add on if required. To test it, I first tried it on my hands and left it for 5mins before scrubbing it off. Wipe off the excess oil with a tissue for best results.
Aroma: The fragrance is OH-SO-GOOD its all about how coffee and cardamom play the bad boys! The aroma lasts for a very long time and perfect for a date night that follows ahead or even otherwise.
Texture and feel: My hands felt extremely, extremely soft or may be soft is an understatement. Probably so silky and smooth that I could not get over them. Luxury overload!! You absolutely have to try it to know it and is a winter skin rescue hands down!!!
Packaging: The overall packaging looks pretty luxe with a chic matte golden lid and a transparent jar. The Label explains it all and is easy to hold on to and is non slippery. Contains 470ml of product and is quite a generous amount for the price tag.
I think I cannot emphasize enough, about how beautiful the product pay off is. It is my favourite winter skincare add-on. And, who doesn’t like anything thats so luxurious anyways? :))
