Guess what coffee lovers – a new Korean skin and body care brand that is purely dedicated to using coffee in ALL its products is now in Singapore!
Not only are the products made from coffee beans, they smell like coffee, too! One of them even LOOKS like a coffee bean, packaged in a pretty little glass mason jar that will seriously have you imagining you’re putting your favourite beverage on your face, seriously!
Why is the brand so obsessed with coffee?
Coffee is rich in a lot of minerals that are great for your skin, such as anti-oxidants and polyphenols. These skin-loving goodies are great at preventing the appearance of signs of ageing and protecting the skin from external damage. Combined together with the natural exfoliation ability of the coffee grounds, the products are able to be extremely effective in preventing and fighting against acne, while removing dead skin and excess sebum on the surface.
But that’s not all – coffee scrubs, due to their rough texture also have the ability to improve circulation, and thus, reduce the appearance of cellulite on the skin – which is why you might see coffee listed as one of the ingredients in many anti-cellulite products!
Blended with olive oil, jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter, the products will have you feeling and looking super refreshed after. Well, it looks like coffee doesn’t just help perk you up and get you ready for work in the morning – it wakes up your skin too!
Pilling Bean currently has two products in its line: a face scrub (that’s the one that looks like coffee beans!) and a body scrub.
