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.

Skinvolve Body Karate Cream Review

This is actually a preliminary review as I think I need to use this for a few months to get the full effect. I received a full sized tube of Skinvolve Body Karate Cream in my Winter Beautycon Box and it’s a $39.99 product.


What’s to love?

This unique cream has caffeine and Argan Oil that’s supposed to hydrate, tone, smooth and improve the texture of your skin. So far I did notice that the cream does hydrate very well.

This white cream feels smooth to the touch but it does have a floral scent and I’m not super crazy about florals so I’m not sure I like this one yet. It is paraben and sulfate free which is nice. The reviews on this product are excellent so I’m excited to keep using it.

It does say to apply to the entire body however I’m not sure I want to caffeinate my entire self! Has anyone else had any experience with these caffeine infused lotions? I am curious to learn more.

GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment Review

First I have to say that GlamGlow is one of my favorite mask products of all time and the ThirstyMud Hydrating Mask is now on my favorites list too. Unfortunately GlamGlow is pricey so my recommendation is to start a GlamGlow budget or try to get a kit where you can try multiple products. I got this one as part of a Sephora mask kit.


What’s to love?

The ThirstyMud Hydrating Mask is a bit different from the other masks I’ve tried but I love it. ThirstyMud is a very light weight and smells amazing. Very fresh. The color is a light shimmery cream and it goes on super smooth.

Unlike say the the SuperCleanse Mask which drys like clay, this one is super smooth and does not dry on your face. This moisturizing mask made my face feel amazing. I kept it on for about 10 minutes and then wiped it off with a warm wet wash clothe. I sweat this mask makes my skin glow. I had too much sun this week and it really helped with moisturizing.

This is definitely one of my new favorite masks.

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleansing Gel Review

A few weeks ago I tried the Irish Moor Mud Mask and really liked it because it was not harsh and odor free so my 71-year-old mom started using it with great results. She has very delicate skin and is allergic to everything. This is one of the only products that she’s been able to use so I decided to get her the new Purifying Cleansing Gel.


What’s to love?

The Purifying Cleansing Gel is extremely mild on both my mom and I. I actually need a bit more grit on my oily face but she loves this gel because it does not irritate her skin. The formula (like the mud) contains Irish Moor Mud, Hijiki Seaweed and Volcanic Ash.

It is also great for my breaks-out. My chin is a mess this week from hormonal acne and this has been my saving grace. It does contain 0.4% Salicylic Acid so that might be helping me too.

It’s super easy to use the black gel, just add some water and rub on your face. It is low lather though when you apply the gel but gets a bit bubbly when you wash it off. It feels so soft and amazing on my skin. I use a dark wash cloth for both the mud and the cleansing gel because the mud does seem to stain a bit.

The 8.5 oz bottle is huge and you only need a tiny amount so I suspect this will last for a very long time.

Over all I’m very impressed with this product and will be using it to calm my face and help with break-outs. I’m also thrilled that my mom found something that she can use.
