Dr Botanicals - Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator, hydrating face scrub (review)

As coffee awakes my foggy mind, Dr Botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator wakes up my dull skinEvery and each coffee addict will fall in love at a first sniff exactly as I did, so be aware and read on to know more about this vegan skin care discovery.

Dr Botanicals - Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator, vegan and cruelty-free face scrub

Dr Botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator is part of the “Apothecary Natural Collection” – a line of fresh and natural products of extra chemicals like colourants and synthetic perfumes - and it’s a 2-in-1 face scrub that mechanically exfoliates the skin and provides hydration while tantalizing us with a patisserie sweet aroma.

The product: packaging

Dr Botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator comes in two sizes/packagings
The featured scrub is the "discovery size", a travel-sized tube with a 30ml product. The original packaging is a 50ml jar, but I found the squeezable tube more hygienic...

Formula & texture
Some ingredients, in particular, make this exfoliating treatment a helpful 2-in-1 product: walnut shell powder exfoliates the skin; glycerine, sweet almond oil, shea and cocoa seed butter hydrate; while coffee oil from green coffee beans is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids giving an extra kick of youth and energy.
It has a paste consistency with thick grains that work on the skin to remove that skin cells, but the overall texture is oily and melting with the body heat.
Thanks to these rich ingredients (almond, cocoa, shea) the exfoliation itself isn’t harsh on my sensitive skin.

How to use:
Dr Botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator has to be applied to wet skin, massaged with gentle motions and rinsed off with warm water. Simple as all scrub on the market.
The brand recommends to use it within 3 months and to store it in the fridge to preserve its property and freshness. 


PROS:
it’s effective
it’s delicate on sensitive and dry skin (gentle action and  free of parabens, synthetic colourants and perfumes)
it leaves skin elastic, smooth and supple
it has a comforting scent
it’s vegan and cruelty-free

CON:
pricey 


Its (fragrant) fragrance is a mixture of melting cocoa and freshly grounded coffee beans notes with a pinch of warm hazelnut, it reminds of Italian melt in the centre hazelnut and chocolate cookies (Grisbì).
The texture is really gentle on my skin and makes Dr Botanicals' product very pleasant to use as a distressing facial massage. This coffee scrub leaves my skin radiant, smooth, elastic and supple after the use and the following days.
Dr Botanicals also claims that its facial scrub improves the appearance of dark spots.
What I could notice from my skin condition is mainly a perfecting in the texture of the skin.

Do I recommend it? Dr Botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator is so delicious that missing it would be a dreadful sin, thus yes: it’s a must-have.
I approve it but the discovery size, despite handy to use, results too pricey compared to the full size.
