Caffeine-Infused: Java Skincare
Do you have anything special you like to do regularly? I like to take a bath occasionally, have a self-care spa day (usually on a Sunday), and I love taking hikes or long trail walks. There's something to be said about taking some time for yourself to rejuvenate, unplug and exhale.
This weekend, my routine included the JAVA Skincare Body Collection. This collection includes a Body Soap, Coffee Bean & Raw Sugar Body Scrub, Body Wash and Body Serum. While the scrub and body soap contained a noticeable amount of coffee bits, it smelled softly of almonds, which reminded me a bit of making Christmas cookies with my boys. I added a splash of the body wash to my bath water, and used the bar to cleanse. The Bar Soap gave me a gentle lather that left me feeling clean and not overly dry as some bar soaps can do.
I used the scrub pre-shave and finished off with the body serum--I felt and smelled like $1M!
The Body Serum was by far my favorite part of the Discovery Kit. My skin was delightfully soft and smooth, even my kids noticed!
Java Skincare's signature ingredient is Organic Green Coffee which "has 3x the antioxidants of green tea, that nourish, repair and protect your skin".
Made in Rhode Island, this JAVA Skincare began when "we found the unlikely intersection of coffee and beauty; a new kind of Java, this time to be savored by the skin." I love that they took something that many of us incorporate into our everyday lives, and found it a new purpose.
Organic green coffee is one of nature's most powerful sources of caffeine and antioxidants which can help diminish under eye circles, reduce redness and other inflammation, and help break down cellulite. JAVA Skincare decided to base their line on this powerhouse ingredient, and source their remaining ingredients according to their strict standards of efficacy and sustainability.
Visit their website and check them out for yourself. You can try their Discovery Kit as I did, or try their popular Lip Duo or Lip Scrub as featured in the Best of Green Beauty Collection by PRO makeup artist Kristen Arnett, founder of the Green Beauty Team.
