MANDARIN MECCA COFFEE SCRUB / Lustre Restoring Body + Face Exfoliant
A luxuriously complex, non-abrasive mess to restore lustre and bounce to thighs, butts and face.
I made this with used coffee grounds, the beautifully fragrant and velvet soft waste that usually gets thrown out after extraction. We get our coffee grounds from Australia's best artisan coffee roaster, our wonderful friend and @meccacoffee owner Paul Geshos.
I'm a decaf coffee girl, and my nervous system can't deal with the skin-irritating, hyper-stimulating full blast caffeine content in coffee scrubs. so the low residual amount of caffeine in coffee waste is a gently effective way to deliver all the benefits of a good coffee scrub without the hardcore down sides. Because it contains velvet soft coconut sugar instead of hard crystal edged brown sugar, this scrub is gentle enough to use on my face and body without micro tearing.

I like to do this once a week, and, as usual with our compositions, you only need little – a 10ml amount, approximately the size of a small chestnut, is heaps.
BODY SCRUB: Run the shower, grab a chestnut size piece of scrub, hop under the shower to get your body and face wet and start by gently by massaging the scrub into thighs and butt, increase to a vigorous rub in circular motion.
FACE EXFOLIATION: Wet your face and massage a hazelnut size amount into the skin for a few minutes. Rinse, dry, moisturise with PRECIOUS FACE OIL
