The enticing coffee aroma coming out of the steaming cup instantly awakens me from sleep. The first sip gives instant energy and stimulates blood flow and I am on my feet instantly and keep active the whole day. That’s the kind of effect coffee has on me.
I was very surprised when I was told that coffee also helps in preventing premature ageing, reduces cellulite, and fights free radicals. Quick research followed and I learnt that Coffee, especially Arabica Coffee nourishes and exfoliates human skin, removes Tan and Blackheads and also helps improve Blood Circulation. For your information: There are two varieties of coffee: Arabica and Robusta.
Also, a google search for skin improvement products with coffee, landed me on this Peta certified, amazing brand mCaffeine. The name mCaffeine initially made me think of a South American coffee brand, but a dig into its product line revealed shower gels, face washes, and shampoos to make your skin glow made with caffeine extracts.
mCaffeine is India’s first caffeinated personal care brand with products to make your skin glow and also for hair care. Their products are dermatologically tested and are free from paraben, synthetic and chemical fragrances, alcohol, synthetic, and artificial colours.

I contacted the mCaffeine marketing team and they agreed to send me their Naked & Raw Coffee Face Scrub and Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash for a review. Facial products were chosen as our facial skin is much gentler than our body skin. And as such we need special products for face treatments.
mCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash with White Water Lily
I quickly opened the face wash pack and instantly liked the low-intensity floral aroma (though I was expecting a coffee aroma). It was now time to pamper my face with mCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash that has a naturally foaming deep cleansing formula enriched with Pure Arabica Coffee and exotic White Water lily.
I was amazed, just one application and I found my face much fresher as the face wash removed all the excess oil and dirt from my face. Truly retaining the positive properties of coffee, the face wash gave a deep Cleansing Freshness Burst to my face. I could feel the result right after the first use, the richness of coffee really made my face look stunning. The result was much more surprising than I expected. My otherwise oily skin was glowing after just one wash.
mCaffeine Face Wash has a naturally-foaming formula and contains skin purifying ingredients to clarify the skin, fight acne and pimples, and prevent them from coming back.
- Coffee is the basic ingredient to stimulate blood flow, prevent premature ageing, reduce cellulite, fight free radicals, peel off dead cells, smoothen skin and help to deep cleanse and increase collagen production for youthful skin.
- The caffeine in coffee, a rich source of antioxidants even tones the skin, fights free radicals and reduces puffiness.
- White Water Lily regenerates skin cells, protects against acne, soothes inflammation and reduces fine lines.
- Seaweed to prevent Skin pigmentation and to diminish dark spots.
- Aloe Vera to treat sunburn, reduce inflammation and soothe skin.
mCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Scrub
MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub also is made from powerful natural ingredients with Pure Arabica Coffee in ample amount and Vitamin E.
Coffee acts as a great scrubber as it exfoliates dead cells, gently removes the dead skin and tenderly expels the dead skin leaving a rejuvenated skin. The coffee brown coloured scrub is powdery and has lots of fine scrubbing granules to properly exfoliate the face skin. But with this product too, I was surprised as I couldn’t smell coffee even though it is the key ingredient. It actually smelled like an artificial floral scent.
I started scrubbing my face gently in a circular motion and then left it for a few minutes before washing it off. The natural ingredients left my face skin less wrinkled, rejuvenated, and smooth.
This is a fantastic face scrub for all skin types. It does what it claims to do. It is light brown in colour and has a smooth, slightly runny consistency. I loved the way the nourishing and exfoliating face scrub gently buffed away all the rough dead skin cells, stubborn blackheads, tan and impurities on my face.
Rinsing the scrub off was also quick and easy and it did not create any mess. It easily came off in one go and did not leave behind any residue at all. In addition, it did not dry my skin out, which I liked the most.
The main ingredient again is Pure Arabica Coffee along with walnut, hibiscus and vitamin E. Pure Arabica Coffee exfoliates, removes Tan & Blackheads, and improves Blood Circulation, and these effects are further enhanced by:
- Caffeine which reduces puffiness fights free radicals and even tones skin.
- Walnut to exfoliate, polish and smoothen skin.
- Hibiscus that tones and firms skin.
With both the products, I could see and feel the results right after the first usage. The richness of my favourite beverage, coffee was felt – naked and raw on my skin.
Both the products are priced at Rs 349 for 100 gm
