Treat ‘Yo Self Without Breaking the Bank

Beauty On a Budget

Whether you’re finishing a tough work week or just need a little “me time”, it’s important to #treatyoself, right?

Unfortunately, pricey trips to the spa are not really an option if you’re on a budget (hey I have shoes to buy), but you shouldn’t have to miss out on a little indulgence just because you don’t have the cash to splurge.

Beverly to 5th

Well hello daylight savings time.

I think we can all agree we need a little extra caffeination this week!

I’d like to introduce you to an incredible company whose product will help to wake up your skin and is Something You Can Feel Good About, Beverly to 5th.

Beverly to 5th is an natural coffee based skincare brand that was founded on the principles of clean, effective, and responsible skincare.

Their AMAZING body scrubs that come in super-cute packaging are all natural, vegan, organic, cruelty free and contain NO parabens or any ingredients which have been tested  animals.

They go one step further then just being cruelty free.  Beverly to 5th has teamed up with PETA to be a part of the Beauty Without Bunnies program. Through the program, brands are promising to use accurate and ethical safety and product testing. Now that’s something we can all get behind!

Ok so the company’s  ethics are beyond amazing but what about the products?

As I mentioned earlier the scrubs are coffee based.  Why Coffee?  You may rely on it to perk up your mood in the morning, but now you can also rely on it to perk up your skin!   It not only constricts blood vessels to reduce redness (making it an ideal topical treatment for facial flushing and rosacea) but also reduces puffiness and can even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Plus, recent studies have shown caffeine to prevent and repair sun damage!

Beverly to 5th’s scrubs are designed to exfoliate, moisturize, help with stretch marks, anti aging, cellulite and tighten and smooth skin.

I am head-over-heels in love with this product for so many reasons (I tried the Peppermint one):

  • Ethical.  The company cares about what we put on our bodies and on the earth.
  • Performance.  The product actually performs- it performs as well as any high end scrub you could buy at a beauty counter.
  • The Ingredients. Simple, easy to identify- no need to decipher crazy scientific lingo:  Organic Coffea Arabica Seed Powder (Organic Coffee), Sea Salt, Brown Sugar, Theobroma Cacao Seed Powder (Cocoa), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Cold Pressed Coconut Oil), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Mentha Piperita Extract (Peppermint Extract)
  • Price-point! Just $16.95 for a 7oz bag.

The result is simple: super soft, smooth and sexy skin.  I’m OBSESSED!
