I took an off from office today coz of Harthal at my place. It’s raining heavily too. I just sipped my fourth cup of coffee.
I love what coffee does for my skin! I love coffee and I often drink it as I am addicted. Coffee really takes the cake when it comes to beauty because it is widely used for beauty concoctions. You can use it as a scrub, mask, moisturizer and believe me you can even tint your hair chocolate brown with super concentrated coffee. If you are like me, then you will love Hip Hop Skin Care Coffee Face Scrub.

My Take on the Product:
I usually make my own scrub. I mix coffee powder with milk and sugar to add a little bit of exfoliation to my face. The combination does wonders for my skin. With my busy work schedule, I no longer have time for my DIY Scrub and this coffee scrub came at the right time.
The product comes in a simple functional white plastic tube with a transparent flip cap. The packaging has the brand details and image of coffee seeds. The packaging is not fancy but travel friendly and sturdy.
The product is creamy with big, coarse light weighted dark brown coffee granules which is not thick. The scrub cleanses my face very well and the exfoliation effect is really commendable. It helps to get rid of my blackheads and whiteheads effectively. It gets rid of dead cells and acne leftovers.
The performance of the scrub is superb. I have sensitive oily skin. The scrub particles are not at all harsh and abrasive. You can feel the granules working on your skin. It haven’t caused any redness or breakout. I feel this scrub is much gentle than the Everyuth and Himalaya ones I was using. I used scrub only once a week but now I can use it once in three days. It instantly brightens the dull skin. My skin feels soft and healthy.
The fragrance is like coffee mixed with some cocoa powder. There is a bit of artificial smell in the scent but it is not a turn off for me coz the smell is pleasant.

I am sure it will suit all skin types. It suits my oily sensitive skin. Dry skin will need a follow up with moisturizer. I rate it a 4/5. I hate the only fact that it has Parabens.
