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.

It's okay

I bought nyakio™ Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub because I liked the sample but when I got the full size I didn't work very well. It needs to have move coffee beans in it to get more of an exfoliating effect.

Small sample size
Sampled

I liked the product best I could tell but would not buy based on the sample size was too small to really be able to tell if I would want to pay the price for the product. I did like the smell and texture of the scrub and what areas I used it on it left the skin feeling smooth.

Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub has to be the most genius thing, ever. For all my fellow coffee lovers, this is a little slice of heaven!

no... no thank you

I was really excited initially to try a coffee scrub but was severely disappointed. It was kinda just gross. I might exfoliate alright but it isn't worth it. The grounds mostly just stick in one place or fall to the shower floor. And the smell (and I love the smell of coffee) is not good. I'll stick to drinking my coffee, thanks.

I don't know what I was expecting -- because it has coffee it's going to wake me up in the morning? No, not so much. It works well to soften your skin like any body scrub. I don't care too much for the fragrance. I like coffee but I don't necessarily want to smell like a coffee bean. So, although the results were good, there was nothing outstanding enough about the product to entice me to go out and buy the product.

Love the idea and smell

I loved the idea and smell of this product but to be honest the size of the sample was a bit too small to get me to really fall in love with the product.

Okay

I felt that it was a little too gritty. And I had to use a lot to clean my entire body, it did not stretch very far. Also thought the smell was a little overwhelming.

Eh

It was ok I guess. It smells good. The sample was super small, so I only had enough in the packet to do half a leg. I felt I needed a lot of product to cover a small area.
