I dreamed of this scrub the moment I learned about the existence of Caphe Roasters, an awesome woman-run company roasting small-batch Vietnamese Coffee in Northeast Philly, whose mission is to decolonize Vietnamese Coffee. Made exclusively using Caphe Roasters roasted coffee beans and their signature condensed milk, this scrub is literally like wearing your favorite Vietnamese iced coffee on your face. But butterier and fluffier.
The Scrub went through three different iterations as it went through the exclusive Sabbatical Beauty testing group. The group saw skin results immediately (brighter skin, smaller pores, the whole shebang that exfoliation brings), and adored the sensual results of Vietnamese Coffee (which unlike the regular Coffee Arabica you're normally used to), this coffee packs a *punch* and wakes you up just from using the scrub. The other two iterations the Scrub went through was to grind the coffee to the finest grind Thu of Caphe Roasters could achieve, so as to avoid any late 1990s apricot scrub fails, and to improve the texture so it was fluffy and soft and gentle to spread on. But would still a killer job with exfoliation.
Travel size: 0.5 oz. Full size: 2 oz.

This is fantastic. Smells heavenly, feels luxurious going on and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. I have been checking fervently for this to be back in stock and hoping it would still be as amazing as I remembered. It was well worth the wait.

In love after first try
This is the first product where I purchased a full-size without trying it in a travel size first. I did that because of 2 reasons: 1) I've come to love and trust the products that SB offers. While I haven't repurchased every single product I've tried, there's nothing I've ever disliked. And 2) I love coffee-scented or coffee-flavored everything (Vietnamese coffee happens to be my favorite kind of coffee, btw). The scrub came in the mail yesterday and I couldn't wait to try it on. I've tried another brand of coffee scrub before and this one by far felt more luxurious. It has a thick and jam-like texture so that a little goes a long way. It was easy to apply and the coffee grains were not too harsh on my skin. Afterward, my skin felt softer than ever. It's going to be hard to only use it twice a week.

This scrub is amazing! I use it once a week in the shower. My face is brighter and feels so clean. It has a strong coffee smell, as you might expect, but it’s a little extra jolt in the morning. I would recommend this to anyone!

Not only does the scrub have the most delicious smell, it makes my skin feel great after I use it. I've used it both as a mask (and left it on for about ten or so minutes) and then just as a scrub in the shower. Both times I enjoyed the exfoliation and the silkiness that it left my skin feeling. I can't wait to order the regular size. I started with the travel size just to test it out and fell in love. Highly recommend.
