Q: What order should I use the products in - particularly; when do I use the serum?

  • Cleansing Balm: melt away makeup and remove the surface layer of dirt, pollution and toxins from the day.
  • A Soap Bar: penetrate more deeply into the pores to remove impurities, thus helping prevent breakouts, build-up, and spots.
  • Coffee Face Scrub: buff away dead, dry skin to reveal fresh glowing skin underneath! (once a week max)
  • A Toner (optional): hydrates and soothes the skin after cleansing.
  • Eye Cream: firms, brightens, and protects the delicate skin around your eyes.
  • Face Moisturiser: this crucial product has cocoa butter and aloe vera to soothe and nourish the skin.
  • Coffee Face Serum: as this serum is oil-based, it is applied after the moisturizer to lock in moisture and help promote the production of collagen, keeping skin supple!

Amazing product.

Best cleanser EVER

I was sceptical as I have very oily skin, but this cleanser has improved my skin so much! Must-have

Makes my skin very soft

I love this cleanser! I have been looking for natural skincare for a while because cleansers sometimes irritate my skin.
This cleanser is an oily cleanser but with warm water and a cloth you van take it off perfectly. It leaves my skin very soft and it feels clean.
I only wear mascara and if I clean my eyes with the cleanser it gives absolutely no irritation to my eyes, even when opening them. I use a separate reusable cottonpad to remove the cleanser with warm water and leaves my eyes clean.
You only need a little bit to clean your whole face. I definitely recommend this cleanser!!

A skincare must have!

I never used a cleansing balm before trying this one, and I absolutely love it! It smells amazing and fresh, you only need a tiny bit for the whole face so I know it will last me a while! It removes my makeup completely, even eye-makeup without causing any irritation, and leaves my skin feeling very nice and clean! I do recommend using it as your 1st cleanse as is advised, and follow up with another cleanser after! All in all, it's a must have!


This cleanser is fabulous. A little goes a long way, and it even gets off eyeliner. Zero problems really rubbing it in to get eye makeup off, and still leaves your skin soft. I will absolutely be buying this again and again....if Brexit allows.
