Savvy Boheme: “Tall Americano” Coffee Scrub Review!

Imagine the smell of a robust cup of coffee for a moment… *breathe in* …  *breathe out*  Ahhhhhh 🙂  What does the smell of coffee remind you of? Maybe it reminds you of sweet memories with friends and family or quiet, serene mornings with the company of a good book. Whatever it may be, I truly believe the aroma of coffee brings joy and happiness to people.  🙂

While Savvy Boheme doesn’t sell actual coffee by the cup, they do have a line of coffee scented products to choose from that are soooooo incredibly yummy. Known as “Tall Americano,” this coffee scented line by Savvy Boheme will lift your spirits and quite possibly give you an energy boost. 😉  Coffee scrubs have actually been in the spotlight for some time now, and for good reason! Using coffee as a scrub has many benefits for the skin including:

  • Reducing the appearance of scars
  • Reducing puffiness and redness
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of cellulite

(Also– you get a serving of powerful anti-oxidants that help fight free radicals, improving skin tone and appearance.)

=O  I mean… Can you say, win-win?!?!

“Tall Americano” scrubs are made with quality ingredients you can trust as well as you can eat! Check it out 🙂

Ingredients:

Raw, Organic Fair Trade Certified Sugar, Organic, Fair Trade Certified Coffee Beans, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Local Honey, Essential Oils of Sweet Orange and Vanilla, Vitamin E.

To Use: Apply product directly to skin, exfoliate skin by scrubbing in a circular motion, while allowing the oils to absorb into skin. Rinse. Pat dry skin before towel drying. (Directions via savvyboheme.com)

“Sweet, robust, citrus and spicy” are four words to perfectly describe this decadent scrub. It is delicious and it will WAKE you UP just like a real cup of joe. 🙂

But WAIT! There’s MORE!

I like to call this next product a “coffee parfait” because I am Oh so original like that, haha. Although, the actual name of this scrub is “Tall Americano: Kathryn’s Reserve.”

It is layered, alternating with coffee scrub and Shea butter. It is my absolute favorite product to use on my skin. I love it! I literally get all giddy when I’m using it. 😀 See, I told you the smell of coffee brings joy and happiness to people! 😉

::Product History::

“Kathryn’s Reserve” is a unique product in that it is named after a friend of Keri Lehmann’s (founder and CEO of Savvy Boheme). Kathryn is currently serving the Lord by living at the Tree of Life Children’s Village in Zambia as the superintendent of Faith Christian Academy. She works among the children to help inspire and nourish their lives! A really amazing thing about this company is that when you buy any Savvy Boheme product(s), a portion of the proceeds goes toward Family Legacy- the ministry Kathryn is a part of. 🙂 So! Not only are you getting quality products that are good for your skin, you are contributing to an awesome cause that helps better the lives of children in need. ❤

 

“Tall Americano: Kathryn’s Reserve” can actually take care of all of your skin preparations in one easy step! This single product can actually be your make-up remover, cleanser, toner, exfoliator and moisturizer all in one jar! So, for you lazy folks out there (and I say that in the most loving way possible), this product was made just for you. 😉

To Use:

As an all-over body treatment: During shower, apply product directly to wet skin, massaging gently in a circular motions allowing the sugar to exfoliate the skin while beneficial oils absorb and nourish your body. Wait a few moments. Rinse. Gently pat dry. Rub remaining oils into skin.

As a Facial Treatment: Scoop a bit of the scrub with a bit of the shea butter. Apply directly to face, gently exfoliating, removing makeup, cleansing, toning, and moisturizing skin in one application. Wait a few moments. Rinse and pat dry. (Directions for use courtesy of savvyboheme.com)

I especially like this product because it gets my skin all prepped for make-up application. A little will go along way with this scrub and Shea combo too, so keep that in mind.

Aaaaanndd, the longer you leave the scrub on your skin, the softer your skin will feel 😉  (5-7 minutes or so)

When it comes to exfoliating the skin, particularly the face, I personally only exfoliate 3-4 times a week. Savvy Boheme scrubs are gentle enough though and can be used daily if you prefer.

The ingredients in this product are very similar to the coffee sugar scrub, just with the addition of coffee infused Shea butter.

Ingredients:

(Scrub: ) Organic Fair Trade Sugar, Fair Trade Medium Roast Ground Coffee, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Organic Local Honey, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Essential Oils of Sweet Orange and Vanilla, Vitamin E. | (Shea:) Organic, Fair Trade, Unrefined Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Rice Powder, Essential Oils of Sweet Orange and Vanilla, Vitamin E.

No preservatives, no fragrances, none of that stuff!
