Birchbox Breakdown

Some mornings we’re feeling so sluggish, we’re loath to let go of our coffee even to hop in the shower. (If it gets watered down, we can just call it an Americano, right?) For those days—or anytime our morning could use an extra pick-me-up—this java-loaded scrub is just the thing. The blend of Kenyan coffee beans and nourishing oils exfoliates and hydrates, leaving skin renewed and ready for the day ahead: Think of it as skincare’s version of espresso.

How it Works

Inspired by a mixture made by founder Nyakio’s namesake grandmother, who worked on a coffee farm, this formula is loaded with natural ingredients like shea butter, sugar, jojoba seed oil, avocado oil, and, of course, Kenyan coffee beans. The grittier ingredients slough off skin’s dull outer layer, while the creamy ones infuse the freshly revealed skin with moisture.

How to Use

Massage onto damp skin in a circular motion, focusing on spots prone to dryness (think heels, elbows, and knees). Rinse away.

Not so great
Sampled

This scrub smells like dark roar coffee and dirt. There is zero suds so it feels like rubbing dirt all over your body too. Not for me.

Not a fan
Sampled

I wanted to love this product but it fell flat for me. Not as exfoliating as I would have liked in a scrub and I didn't like the scent at all.

Just okay
Sampled

The smell was nice and I liked that the exfoliating particles were larger. It seemed like I needed to use a lot to get the job done, though!

Coffee Scrub!
Sampled

This scrub is great! I love the way it left my skin feeling. And the idea that it is made of coffee is an added bonus!

Not as good as their face polish
Sampled

I liked the smell and loved that it didn't have any oils or anything that left the tub slippery. Perhaps I didn't use enough because the sample size was quite small, but I didn't find it to be very effective.

Did not like this scrub at all
Sampled

This scrub was a sample sent to me through my monthly boxes. Usually I love everything coffee scented and was excited to use this. I opened the package and was very disappointed. Smelled awful! Very thick and worked as far as a scrub but could not use it as it smelled so bad. Unfortunate....

Not very gritty
Sampled

I like scrub to be gritty, so I know it is working. This scrub was pretty gentle, it had some gritty texture but not too much, and at first I thought it wouldn't work very well, but it has a lot of moisture to it so my skin felt very soft afterwards.

Weird

This scrub was a weird consistency and i had a hard time using it. I would not buy this after trying it.
