Interestingly, more and more skin care products, from creams to scrubs contain caffeine. It’s interesting to see how popular this ingredient has become over the years in beauty products. Interestingly, one of the lesser known coffee based beauty products is caffeinated body wash and caffeine soaps as well as coffee shower gels.
You may have come across our review of coffee body scrubs, however this is the first time we are looking into various coffee based wash and bath products.
The key to remember is that caffeine has antioxidants that are healthful to the skin and also act as natural anti-inflammatory (in a small capacity), both of which combine to help tighten the appearance of skin so that lines and wrinkles stand out less. This is why they are used in cellulite reducing body scrubs.
So does the skin absorb coffee? Absolutely. However a warm shower or bath increases the chance of your body to absorb the coffee goodness as your skin is most receptive after a shower. So does it really work? Well each shower gel, soap or body wash below has some level of coffee, and we bring you genuine observations and reviews from people who use them, as well as links on where to buy or to read more reviews.
As you look through our caffeinated soaps and body washes below, consider trying one of these for yourself! You may not be a coffee person, that doesn’t miss you have to miss out on its benefits!
