Do you ever feel just like you need a cup of morning coffee to wake up, your skin can do good with that kick of morning coffee too. Don’t think I’m crazy when I say you can instantly wake your skin with coffee. Yes, I’m talking about Coffee Face Mask.☕
I love coffee, it is something I always reach out to whenever I feel dull and lethargic. So when I see in a face mask it’s exciting for me. I make diy scrubs and face mask at home using coffee all the time. Let me know in the comment section below if you want to know more about the DIY skincare as well.
But if you’re getting something out of a jar without all the fuss of making it then why not, right?🤷♀️

About the texture and fragrance of the mask :-
The texture of the mask is sticky and jelly like. It does feel creamy when applied. The mask smells absolutely delicious, although I’m a coffee lover so I don’t mind the strong coffee fragrance. However, if you are not a coffee scent fan, you would probably not like this mask. Since the coffee scent is pretty strong and it stays till you wash it off.
The gel like mask is hydrating and the tiny coffee granules provides gentle exfoliation. Few minutes after applying, you might experience a little warm and tingly feeling, yes the mask warms up a little so don’t be alarmed. the warmth is not over-powering or irritating but noticeable.
Since the mask is of a sticky consistency with coffee granules in it. It is best to use a wash cloth and warm water to remove the mask. Removing without a wash cloth just by rinsing can be a little bit of a challenge.
How and When to use The Body Shop Coffee Mask :-
Apply an even layer on cleansed skin avoiding the eye area. You can take it down to your neck if you want. Even with the coffee granules the application of the mask is super smooth. Relax for 5-10 minutes, sip on a nice coffee or tea or even water 😜. The mask will not dry stiff, the texture will moreover remain the same as when applied.
Remove it using a wash cloth and warm water. Since the mask is of a sticky consistency, it’s best to use a wash cloth to remove. Rinsing it off just by water without the cloth can be a bit of a challenge. Can be used by all skin types, 2-3 times a week.
Important Tip :- Always patch test the product before you put it on your face. You never know how your skin is going to act.
My experience with The Body Shop Coffee Face Mask :-
I have very dry skin which looks dull and tired most of the times, therefore I don’t shy away from a gentle exfoliation. This mask instantly makes my look more energized. My skin felt smooth and hydrated and most important it felt awakened.

Where to buy The Body Shop Coffee Mask :-
You can buy this from The Body Shop Store or from Amazon. It applies smooth and you only need a little at a time. I’m sure the jar will go on for longer time.

If you have dry and dull skin and you’re looking for something to give your skin the boost it needs, I would recommend trying out this mask. The coffee smell is really strong so keep that in mind if you’re not a coffee fan. Overall the mask is hydrating and plumping. The dull skin will look brighter instantly.
