Coffee for Beauty : MCaffeine

I'm a tea person but recently, coffee caught my attention. There are people who can't start their day without a cup of coffee. But anyone, coffee for beauty?

I know that coffee helps to heal wounds and inflammation. But never ever has it occurred to me that coffee has that effect to strengthen, exfoliate and revitalize our hair and skin. Interesting, isn't it?

When I first learnt about a range of personal care products with base ingredients as Coffee, it stirred my curiosity.

MCaffeine - India’s first Caffeinated Personal Care brand.

MCaffeine has a wide range of Skincare and Hair care products that are carefully curated to our needs. Since I have been going organic with my skincare regime, I thought it was a good time to try coffee based personal care products.

On a first impression, the ingredients they use are all natural components. Then, the price was reasonable to me. And they also send complimentary products on every order to try out their sample products.

I was looking for natural products to add to my skin care routine - to exfoliate, to moisturize, to polish, and to nourish my skin during this summer.

I received my order in less than a week. During these restricted lockdown days, I appreciate their prompt delivery service.

In any personal care product, the first thing we try is the smell. Because, if the smell puts you off, you might not even want to try that product. So first things first, Aroma is the best. The moment I squeezed out some lotion.. the moment I mix water with the body scrub.. the moment I took the bathing bar out.. the whole room was filled with coffee aroma, like as if you were teleported to a coffee shop.

Now, I have been trying these products for a little more than a week. I can't hype much about the impact it made, but then every time I use it, my skin feels rejuvenated, and my mood lifts up with it's enticing coffee aroma.

Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub with Coconut is gentle on your skin. It retains the moisture to keep our skin hydrated and nourished.

This coffee-infused Naked and Raw Coffee Body Polishing Oil has an aroma of freshly grounded Arabica coffee to perk-up your senses. And when applied, my skin gets a healthy polished glow. And, no more dry skin with Naked and Rich Choco Body Lotion. It has all the skin nurturing ingredients to make our skin feel soft and supple.

India’s First Coffee Bean Shaped Bathing Bar for you! There are three flavours of bathing bars and I picked the Latte Coffee Bathing Bar. It's amazing!

Not only these, there is a separate section for Coffee Gift Sets. The products are vegan and gender neutral. The packing look just lovely and can be gifted to our loved ones on any occasion. A mood lifting premium gifting option - sure to make your gifting experience worthwhile.

And, not to mention that my little niece and nephew love the coffee scent on me. Even they want to apply some moisturizer on their hands and legs and sink into the heavenly aroma. Because - for them, it smells like yummy toffee!

So, are you a coffee lover and also like to care for your skin?  Then MCaffeine products are for you. Well, even if you're not a coffee person, it's okay.. still this is one brand you must give it a try. Definitely, you'll feel happy about it.

'Mommy, Who is Allah?' ~ Children's Book Review

Author - Zainab Jones

Illustrator - Vicky Amrullah

Publishers - Djarabi Kitab Publishing

The book is titled with one of the first few questions asked by every Muslim child to their parents. A significant question indeed, and that needs an affirming answer. And every parent tries to give their version of the answer to tell their kids who the Almighty is.

Zainab Jones has attempted to answer her son Abdulrahman Al-Husain about Allah. She calls her son, Dahumie and sings to him. It is very cute.

The question Dahumie asked about Allah was not just a question out of curiosity but a question based on what he has been seeing his mother do - Remembering Allah regularly. He is more interested in knowing about the regular habit his mother is involved in. This clearly shows us the significance of the fact that kids ask questions from what they see often and hence insists on the fact that parents have to be mindful about their activities.

Now the way she answers, starting from the Creation and calling Allah, Al-Khaliq means The Creator in Arabic, is a good way to introduce our Almighty to the little ones.

Creation is something that excites every kid as they are curious about the source of everything they see. Starting from the Sun, she transcends the power of The Almighty to every creation by affirming - “He created everything”.

Vicky Amrullah's illustrations are simple and precise, revolving around two characters in their home. 

This is the author's first children’s story book and she has done a decent job. This can be a good bedtime story for your children and you can also narrate your version of the answer to your child along with this book.

The book is available in both physical and digital versions.
