But first, coffee…in the shower!

But first, coffee…in the shower!

Aahhh, coffee we love you, need you, & want you without a doubt every. single. day. So imagine our surprise when we learned of all the benefits coffee can have on our skin too.  From brightening skin, reducing the look of cellulite, to being an excellent natural exfoliator, coffee in scrub form is a delightful little number to add to your morning routine.  And, after about 5 minutes of brainstorming we knew a Hip & Chick style coffee scrub had to be our next creation.

When we started playing with our own coffee scrub recipe we stuck to our most important traits; smell and feel.  For us, the texture and feel of each of our products is something we hold near and dear. If an ingredient we try feels too sticky, heavy, or abrasive its out and back to the lab we go.  Then we have the smell, to us the essence of the product, and we promise this one will get you right in the morning time feels. We know you hate waiting, so in the mean time try out this awesome coffee & cocoa face mask, it’s perfect for eliminating morning puffiness and you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already. We tried it and it was a truly energizing morning experience that I have since added to my routine about 3x a week.  All you’ll need is a few select ingredients I’m sure you already have in the kitchen!

All you’ll need is 4 basic ingredients:

  • 2 TBS Used Coffee Grounds
  • 2 TBS Organic Honey
  • 2 TBS Cocoa Powder or Cinnamon
  • 2 TBS Whole Milk or Heavy Cream

Combine all ingredients until they are mixed well into a sort of runny paste. Apply to your facial area, gently massaging in a circular motion until you’re covered. Let the mask set (it will feel a little sticky due to the honey!) for about 15 minutes and rinse with warm water & washcloth to reveal a fresh un-tired face!  We did it and I have made one about 3x a week since then, no shortage of K-Cups to use around here!

3 cheers for an un-puffy morning and to my lovely friend T for DIY’ing with me. Stay tuned for more exciting Hip & Chick news, DIY’ing, recipes & more goodies!
