My mom loves coffee. Since she was around 30, she would always enjoy a cup every morning, afternoon and evening until ‘WhatsApp forwards’ changed her mind eventually. Now, she has a cup of caffeine only once a day. So, when I first heard of the coffee and cocoa products from mCaffeine, I wondered if I would really enjoy them as I’ve sniffed this particular aroma for years. I was sure I was saturated.
When I first tried their body lotion a couple of years ago, it made me nostalgic. Of course, it wasn’t exactly like a steaming cup of coffee, but this was only because the lotion was cool.
They have oils, shampoos, bathing bars, foot scrubs, under-eye cream, scalp scrubs, etc.
They also have gift sets but I found them a bit pricey. For example, the Coffee Beans gift kit. While the bathing bars are complimentary with some other purchases, the Coffee Beans gift kit (with 3 bars), after discount, costs Rs. 875/-. They also normally come in a set of 3 which costs Rs. 765. So, personally, I would prefer buying only the products and creating a customized hamper myself, but then, to each his own. If you like their gift box, you will definitely want to buy their gift kits.
Their products are all vegan, cruelty-free and PETA certified. They are also free from SLS, Paraben and Mineral Oil. They are dermatologically tested as well as FDA-approved.
The ingredients include caffeine which is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant rich, thereby, aiding in repair and strengthening of the skin. Shea and cocoa butter combats dryness and moisturizes the skin. Ceramide helps to lock in the moisture of the skin. Almond milk helps soothe the skin. Coconut oil helps to soften the skin. Argan oil adds a healthy glow and Vitamin E nourishes the skin.
It is pretty simple. Just browse, select all the products you want, go to your cart and order. Sometimes, they have some pretty good freebies that come along with your purchases, so, I would suggest that you take your time and browse through the website before you place your final order.
I did not find anything that needed to be improved, except maybe they could make their gift kits a little bit more attractive and include smaller versions of other products in them, so that it looks full and does not feel like the customer is paying for the box.
My stuff arrived in a sturdy cardboard box. I absolutely love their range of products and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the aroma of coffee, cocoa or caramel. When used, the skin does feel soft without making it greasy or sticky. The cream absorbs well into the skin and keeps it smooth for a long time. The scrub feels like it is cleaning every part of the skin it is rubbed on. I enjoy pampering myself with the body polishing kit during and after my shower. I have not used the complimentary items as yet but will do so as soon as my current products are finished.
