COFFEE SUGAR BODY SCRUB -DIY

Today I am going to post a beautiful scrub recipe that has a long shelf life and apart from that, you get extremely smooth skin that you will just adore. And needless to say the smell is sumptuous. This scrub is  easy to make and store.

Since the main ingredient is coffee, its a very great scrub not only to slough off dead skin but also helps to reduce those cellulite dumplings on your thighs.

This is a must try hard working scrub that you ought to have at home.

So here is the recipe for making this coffee sugar scrub:

You 'll need

1.Ground pure coffee ( you can get the kind of scrub consistency at Coffee Day store as they have freshly ground coffee.Ask the assistant to not completely grind it) 150 gms

2. Extra Virgin Olive Oil(Enough to make it to scrub consistency)

3.Sugar 100 gms

4. Cinnamon ( Zest of Cinnamon 1tsp)

Look through the picture tutorial to make the simple yet effective scrub.

Please do not use this on delicate skin areas and also not for facial use as its a coarse body scrub.















Vola!! You have it .Just use it in your shower and do let me know how you liked it !!I know those pictures are old but i forgot to post this.... ,,haahah happens when you have two kids!!

Top 5 or my best and most repurchased Skin-care products

Hello .........This post is long due and I had to jump to write this and tell you my quintessential products that make my day. Here in this post, I am writing about the top 5 products ( only Basic skincare) that I have repurchased over the few couple of years. These are the best that I used and always helped me look better, helped me feel content and never really let me down.
For I say these are my "go-to products" for everyday use.To look best, and only the best.

My top 5 most repurchased products:

My skin type: Very dry
My skin tone: NC40

1. Dove Beauty moisture face wash.
2. Olay Moisturising Cream
3.Forest essentials Tejaswi Ubtan
4.The Body Shop Body Butter (Olive Body Butter /Japanese Camelia Body butter/ Shea Body lotion)
5.La'OCtaine Foot Cream.


Tese above list of products are my go to products and I usually never run out of these.Though I have a lot more face washes, lot more creams, lot more face powders and lip products, these are something I tend to repurchase and are a constant in my vanity. Let me talk through each of the above products and how they fair for becoming my most repurchased products.

1.Dove moisture Face wash:



My skin is extremely dry and with the touch of water, my skin becomes tight and dull.But with this creamy white face wash my skin is clean and supple. And extremely travel-friendly, your everyday friend.

2.Olay Moisturizing cream: 

This is a must-have in my stash and a go-to-product which is best suited for extremely humid places like where I live. I never sweat out this cream. Sometimes with most other creams, I tend to sweat immediately after applying which is a big no-no.Thus Olay moisturizing cream is the best for the conditions that I live in, great moisturizer and absolutely no greasiness or sweating.

3.Forest Essentials Tejaswi Ubtan:

This I have repurchased about 3 times or more and it has never disappointed me, I just use it as a soap-free facial cleanser before sleeping and it just makes my skin clean, clear and tightens pore in the most natural way and the smell is most divine.If not every day, use it as a bi-weekly pack with raw milk for good results as well.

4.The Body Shop Body Butter:

These are my first crush, eternal love and my partner in good skin. I have at least three tubs at home at any given point of time. And I never miss their offers they are just as tempting as their body butter, as tempting as their fragrences. And the best part is their claim of 24-hour hydration.No more scaly skin, bid a goodbye to those white patchy skin with these sumptuous body butter.

5.La'Occtaine Foot Cream:

Hands down the bestestest foot cream I have ever come across. It is just not a foot cream, the lavender essential oils in this completely help relax fatigued feet. Yes of course skin is super soft, supple and they look like very high profile feet, just pedicured. Yes, you can count on me.

Himalaya MOM's Soothing Body Butter Lavender.

Its been a long time since my last post and yes I have been busy with "motherhood".Its a baby girl this time and super happy to have this bundle of joy in our family. My husband badly wanted a girl this time, and yes God did hear to him , made his wish come true. And as its my second pregnancy, I was more keen on products that help firming and toning of skin.With my exploration of the web for massage oil that help me, I stumbled on this Himalaya body butter for moms.,It really caught me and with winter surprisingly lasting little  longer than usual in this part of the world, Visakhaptnam, I needed some body butter to help my dry skin. With no second thoughts I picked this up from my local Himalaya store. There is also Rose fragrance in this line of Body butter,but lavender lured me.


Product type:Body Butter
Product price: 320 INR


My review of the "Himalaya MOM's Soothing  Body Butter Lavender."

This body butter comes in various sizes though I got it in 200 ml jar.You can opt for smaller sizes too.
Packaging is usual in a plastic jar, withe screw cap.I have been using this for the past one week and its is really good. It has a really mild , soothing lavender smell and helps relax once your out from shower.Somehow post delivery skin has become really dry and this body butter really help to smooth the skin and hydrate it well. Though if you have very dry skin , this might not really do the job.
Since this is good quantity , this will last me long !
The good news is this is without parabens, Oh! My little one is crying , I'll be back soon with another post, lots of review lined up !!
See you soon
XOXO
