cof­fee pick-me-ups for your skin

1. Known to de-puff eye bags and brighten dark cir­cles, caf­feine is a key in­gre­di­ent in many eye creams and serums, such as Tril­ogy CoQ10 Eye Re­cov­ery Con­cen­trate, $40, which also min­imises fine lines. 2. Lu­mi­nous Smash­box eye primer, $55, is a pre-make-up must with caf­feine to deal to tired skin. 3. Lush Caca Brun Henna bar, $32, calls on cof­fee beans and co­coa but­ter to as­sist henna in cre­at­ing a rich, shiny, choco­late brown hair colour. 4. The sweet cof­fee and choco­late scent of Hur­raw! Cof­fee Bean Lip Balm, $7, is ap­peal­ing enough, but the ve­gan in­gre­di­ents leave lips silky smooth and hy­drated too. 5. Mu­rad’s Es­sen­tial-C Eye Cream, $132, com­bines caf­feine with pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant Vi­ta­min C to pro­tect and re­new the del­i­cate skin in this area. 6. Treat the rest of your body with Tril­ogy’s lux­u­ri­ous Firm­ing Body Lo­tion, $30, con­tain­ing caf­feine to tone and tighten. 7. Perk up your shower rou­tine with Sukin En­er­gis­ing Body Scrub, $17.50, which uses ground cof­fee beans with mi­nus­cule pieces of co­conut shell to slough dry skin and add mois­ture. 8. Cof­fee lovers won’t be able to get enough of the in­tense scent of Lush Cup o’ Cof­fee Face and Body Mask, $19.50. 9. A beauty com­pany built on the use of cof­fee in skin­care, Frank has moved be­yond its cult body scrub to face prod­ucts like the gen­tle Frank Body Creamy Face Scrub, $29, from mec­ca­beauty.co.nz. 10. Whole cof­fee beans make up the tex­tured sur­face of Lush Per­cup Mas­sage Bar, $18.50, which softly mas­sages and stim­u­lates cir­cu­la­tion while creamy so­lid­i­fied co­conut and jo­joba oils sup­ply hy­dra­tion.
