I got this generous forum gift from EDS, 1oz size. It's not small at all and I still have most of it left after a month or more.

Description:
This invigorating, aromatic coffee scrub made with fresh Indonesian coffee beans awakens the senses as it exfoliates and cleanses. As the scrub lathers into a gentle foam, the rich, dark roasted coffee is transformed into a creamy café au lait color. Used in Indonesian treatments to stimulate circulation in the skin, coffee has been clinically proven to provide powerful antioxidant and tightening benefits when applied to the skin.

First of all this does not foam but the base does turn into a creamy latte color depending on how wet your skin is. I really really LOVE this scrub. When you open it you smell bold expresso, but when used on the skin the smell sweetens up a lot and I smell something more along the lines of a Cappucino or a Mocha. The smell does lingers on your body after a while but you can't smell it after you put on your clothes. I really like how the smell does not fade as soon as you rinse as I quite like myself smelling like coffee in the mornings. A big plus for me is that this is a cleanser + scrub in one which means it SAVES ME TIME! And mainly for that reason my Bella Lucce Peruvian Chocolate Scrub is now neglected in corner of my bathroom. This leaves my skin very moisturized and not greasy at all. It rinses away quickly and easily and I rarely put on lotion afterwards. But I can see some very dry skinned people would probably want to put a light lotion on afterwards to seal in the moisture. The coffee scrubbies are not harsh and I really enjoy using it, I find them less harsh than some sugar scrubs. I find the 8oz for 43CAD pretty expensive but this isn't something you'd use everyday and it really does last a very long time. This is already in my cart for purchase when I use up my existing scrubs as it very quickly became one of my favorite scrubs.

Oh, this sounds very nice and caffeine does have a little tightening effect..
I think the Juara line is really worth looking at, nice ingredients. I'm going to put this on my "must try" list! Thanks for sharing. Smile

I bought this a few weeks ago along with the eye cream.

This scrub is awesome -- to me it smells a bit like a combo of coffee and chocolate -- yummy!

My skin is super soft after I use this. I am only using once or twice a week.

I was always intrigued by their products... they seem different. Maybe I should go for it and try a few of them!

I have this one as a gift sample too. I don't know if I like it. it does leave my face smooth and moisted, but I find the scrubs are bit harsh for my face. I have to constantly adding water to my face during the scrubbing, otherwise it would hurt a bit. I am thinking to use it as body scrub now.

This scrub is meant for the body not the face.. so that's why it's too harsh for your face.
