When I came across UpCircle Beauty I was really curious to try their products.
UpCircle Beauty is a company based in the UK who repurpose leftover ingredients used in beauty products to create sustainable and useful products for the skin and body. For example, leftover coffee granules, chai tea spices are just a few ingredients that get reused. Their range is 100% natural meaning there are no nasties as well as being vegan and cruelty free. All of their products are proudly made in the UK (I am guessing those Londoners are big coffee drinkers!).
I was lucky enough to be sent the Coffee Body Scrub and Face Serum which I will review today!
The Body Scrub in Coffee + Lemongrass* is a beautiful coffee scrub for the body. It contains sea salt, lime and coconut (basically all of my favourite things) for an uplifting scent for the mind and body. The coffee used is top quality Arabica coffee ground from artisan coffee shops which I found really interesting! The scrub also contains shea butter to nourish the skin. It does an amazing job at buffing away dead skin cells and leaving the skin smooth and soft. I didn’t even need to apply moisturiser afterwards as the oils and butters stayed on the skin. However, what I love most about this is the packaging; it comes in a squeeze tube which means less mess and wastage in the shower. I personally find these way easier to use whilst in the shower as there’s no chance of water getting in. Also, all of the packaging is recyclable. Overall, I am a big fan of this scrub and would highly recommend it!

The Face Serum with Coffee Oil* is a nourishing face oil packed with ingredients to boost collagen and keep skin firm. It contains lots of nourishing ingredients such as jojoba, rosehip oil and coffee oil to brighten the complexion and keep it hydrated. For men, it can also be used as a beard oil! I have been applying this at night under my night cream and I absolutely love the nourishment it gives to my skin! I like oils that feel ‘luxe’ on the skin and this one fits that description perfectly. I also like to apply it on my neck and décolletage for that added boost of moisture. I really enjoyed this face oil and would recommend it as an extra step in your skincare routine.
