Get a buzz on: Caffeinated beauty products
We love our morning cup of coffee. No day starts without one and that caffeinated buzz (in our favorite mug) really gets us going. As an ode to our must-have morning beverage, we decided to look into more ways to get our fix without actually having a second cup. We rounded up a buzz-worthy stash of beauty products that either have caffeine as an active ingredient or simply wake up the senses with a kick of coffee goodness.
Revitalize your body and get smooth, glowing skin all over when you use Pacifica Kona Coffee & Sugar Detox Whole Body Scrub ($28). Tropical ingredients like sea salt and coconut oil leave skin soft and radiant, while the added caffeine boost helps to brighten and detoxify skin. We especially love that this product is made without synthetic dyes, parabens and other harmful ingredients. Use weekly (especially in the winter) to look beautiful in the buff.
Cellulite is a beauty nightmare for most women because it's stubborn and not easy to conceal or get rid of. Caffeine comes to the rescue in Bliss Fat Girl Slim ($42), a cream that reduces the appearance of unsightly cellulite by using caffeine to firm and energize skin and reduce the appearance of fluid retention, leaving skin looking more contoured. Who knew that what's brewing in your morning cup of coffee can also smooth thighs? We'll drink to that!
Wake up without the aid of a mug of coffee simply by taking Wash with Joe body wash ($24) into the shower with you. The invigorating blend of coffee and mint will wake up your senses as soon as you open the bottle. With coffee as the first ingredient in this product, you know it will perk you up. The rich, foaming coffee and mint body wash leaves skin refreshed and revitalized and will ensure you feel a lot more awake after your shower than before you stumbled into the bathroom.
Say goodbye to dark circles and puffiness with 100% Pure Cosmetics Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream ($14). The caffeine in this potent product reduces swelling while increasing circulation to brighten dark circles meaning even if you feel tired, you won't look it. This caffeinated eye cream can be used as either a morning or night eye cream and is also packed full of anti-aging ingredients, vitamins and antioxidants.
