Bath & Body Works NEW Coffee Bean Body Scrub Review

The NEW Bath & Body Works Coffee Bean Body Scrub is a really neat product for people like me who love a heavy exfoliator and the smell of coffee!

What’s to love?

First up, the scent of the Coffee Bean Body Scrub is amazing. It’s  Kona Coffee Bean, Cinnamon Bark, Vanilla Almond Milk, Whipped Cream & Fluffy Musks. To me it just smells like fresh brewed coffee which is nice in the morning.

It is a heavy exfoliator that has Coffee Beans and Coconut Shells and while it is a rougher scrub I love how it makes my skin feel. I really love it on the rough patches on my feet too. The scent does linger afterwards so if you love the smell of coffee this one is a good pick.

Bath & Body Works Fall 2017 Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Review

Fall has officially arrived at Bath and Body Works with 5 scents — Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, Champagne Apple & Honey, Bright Autumn Blooms, Salted Caramel Apricot and Spiced Pumpkin Cider.

I have to say that Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte is my favorite Fall scent.


What’s to love?

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte is a mix of Pumpkin Latte, Toasted Marshmallow & Creamy Sandalwood. To me it smells like a creamy latte with a dash of pumpkin.

This scent was also part of last years line up but it has a fresh new look which is so pretty. I love the worn wood look. This year the products are also made with with pure honey,

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte comes in Body Cream, Fine Fragrance Mist, Shower Gel, Hand Soap and Whipped Body Butter. The Whipped Body Butter comes in cardboard “box” with marshmallows popping out the top and it’s so cute. The perfect gift for lovers of coffee and Fall!

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face & Body Mask Review

Today I bring to you a delightful treat!

I happen to LOVE the smell of coffee, ironically I hate the taste and only drink tea so I get my coffee fix from candles, coffee beans and now  Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask.

The Cup O’ Coffee mask is now my go-to morning treat. I use it about 2-3 times per week which might be too much if you have sensitive skin. My skin type is on the oily side (I know weird for someone over 40) but I definitely get greasy on the T-Zone.

What I love about Lush Cup O’ Coffee.

Aside from the smell (which is a super deep, deep rich coffee bean aroma) I love the texture. Most masks are either clay or sticky peel off types. This mask is about the consistency of Karo Syrup (which makes sense because it’s got Organic Agave Syrup) with a nice grit from the coffee. I love how easily it spreads on too. Just coat your fingers and rub on your entire face or your problem areas.

The other thing I love is that it does not slide off or feel like a goopy mess. I leave my mask on for 5 minutes then wash off using a wash rag and warm water. Afterwards my skin is silky smooth and more pores are noticeably smaller.

I get zero irritation or redness from this product and it keeps my face looking great year round.

You can also use this product in the shower. I use it on my arms and shoulders for a great glow. Another bonus is that the coffee smell lingers for awhile.

Here is the product on my arm. That weird circular mark is from my Apple Watch (told you I was a geek)!


Price: $10.95 for 5.2 oz. or $19.95 for 11.4 oz.

I do recommend that you get the 5.2 oz tub unless you’re sharing it. The product expires fairly quickly (4 months) and if you’re only using it 2-3 times per week as a face mask you’ll be better off getting a new 5.2 oz. tub every month or so.
