Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing product.
Hi, I am 26yrs old and have suffered from acne/spots and oily/combination skin since 16/17yrs old, having tired many different products and always changing to find one that works well. Since discovering upcircle through a subscription box, I received samples this was the coffee face scrub, herbal blend, face serum and body scrub peppermint. However, my review is based on coffee face scrub, herbal blend. I have used this for 2 weeks (with the face serum afterwards) and the difference in my facial skin is incredible. My skin feels smoother and soft to touch, a lot less oily and no spots have appeared since using the face scrub. My complexion is brighter and clean looking. Also, the face scrub does not leave your skin red or sore after use, if you have tired face scrubs in the past you will know most leave the skin red with new breakouts appearing. I would highly recommend the face scrub, you will not regret the decision buying this product. This is now a must have product for myself.
Most Helpful Critical Review I don't know if I like it
I really can't tell if I like it or not. I'm not a big fan of coffee, smell or taste, but I saw this product had amazing reviews and I'm always looking for new products to battle my oily skin.
So, the reasons I'm not ecstatic with it are the smell and the abrasiveness. To me, the smell is that of burnt synthetic coffee. I've used it three days now and am slowly getting used to it but it's also very abrasive. Like washing your face with coffee grounds and sand. I might be doing something wrong but when I was it off my face does feel better? Until I'm spending an extra 5 minutes making sure I've removed all the extra coffee grounds from my face I might've missed.
I do like the product because it does help my skin. It feels smooth and soft as warm butter after washing and it stays that way without excess oil for a good bit. Usually my skin is back to 'yuck' around mid afternoon and this stuff definitely keeps me dry for longer. I'm definitely going to keep trying the product but if you have sensitive skin I might try something less abrasive.
Reviewed by 518 customers great product, bad packaging
kcaps from Michigan
first, the product inside the tube: incredible. it does leave a balm residue feeling on your face after you use it - like a thin layer of shea butter. I have oily skin, and this did not bother me or cause issues later in the day with shine/oil. it absorbs! it did wonders as well to clear my skin!! but the packaging. I hate aluminum tubes so much. they crack and open, leaking product through the holes. this one was impossible to squeeze out the last third. I tried to roll it up like a toothpaste tube in the end, but that was kinda difficult to do - especially if your hands are slick from the balmy texture of the scrub. maybe an aluminum tin or jar would be easier! I'll come back to this if they ever change the package.
Lovely facial scrub
Vicki P. from Undisclosed
This is such a great product. Smells amazing and is a thorough but gentle facial scrub. I tend to use it every other day. You don't need to use a lot either. I find it works best to wash my face with the chai soap afterwards to completely remove any residue.
Ellie P. from Undisclosed
This is the first UpCircle product I tried and now I have bought all their products... I love this face scrub, it is exfoliating and makes your skin so so soft!
Smells absolutely divine, the grounds
Rebecca M. from Undisclosed
Smells absolutely divine, the grounds are just the right consistency without feeling harsh (as scrubs sometimes can) and it doubles up as a bit of a face mask treat if you leave it on for a few minutes so the oils can sink in. Leaves my skin feeling so lovely and soft. I'd definitely recommend getting the tube squeezer as well. I thought I'd run out of scrub, but when I cut the tube open to clean it for recycling I found I had another few applications left! Bonus!
I really love this scrub!
Emma G. from Undisclosed
I really love this scrub! Not too intense granules with a lovely smooth/hydrated feeling after which I have never had before in this type of product. As well the coffee smell is the perfect pick me up in the morning!
Nice smell and great exfoliation
Anna C. from Undisclosed
It smells lovely, makes my face feel very clean after use and certainly gets the blood flowing which gives your skin a nice glow after.The only downside is it's very messy so I'd recommend using it whilst in the shower maybe.
I love the ethos of
Raiona T. from Undisclosed
I love the ethos of the whole Up-Circle brand - they recycle so many discarded ingredients (like the coffee in this product). The products always look sleek and high end. I'm still trying this face scrub out but it's a winner so far. Just remember to shake the tube! I didn't on the last scrub I tried and struggled getting the last of the product out. Basically, read the packaging and do what it says! You'll get your money's worth that way :wink:

Its been 6 months i have been using it. I have never thought of going for any other product since using this. Amazing!

Sheridan H. from Undisclosed
This is one of my favourite skin care products of all time. Leaves skin feeling so soft and smells amazing. I have recommended this and other Upcircle products to friends and families.
Jade A. from Undisclosed
Really lovely quality product. I feel like it exfoliates really well. It does have a slight oily texture and leaves a bit of a residue on the skin but I always use the face mask after anyway. Love the companys ethos too and the fact that it's recyclable. It does go everywhere in my skin but this cant be helped. Will definitely be purchasing again. Easy website to use and love that its free shipping over £20. Such a bargain!
Smells amazing and really noticing
Jenna S. from Undisclosed
Smells amazing and really noticing a difference to my skin, it feels so soft and clean after I've used it!
This is messy to use
Nikki R. from Undisclosed
This is messy to use but worth it. It leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed and smells lovely. It's not harsh like other scrubs I've used.
Susan from Undisclosed
I was desperate to like this brand as I love their concept but out of five products purchased I've only liked two. This gave me dry patches, something I've never suffered with before and it leaves a weird residue until you wash your face with a separate cleanser.
Samantha R. from Undisclosed
I've been using this product for about a month now and I am very happy with it! It exfoliates very well without irritating my skin and my acne has been getting better each week since I started using this and the cleansing balm. Clean, clear, soft skin. Downsides are that sometimes it leaks in the shower no matter what I do to stop it, I have to cleanse my face after because it does feel a tiny bit sticky or too moisturized, And you definitely need the key to roll it down so you can get all the product. Overall 8/10 definitely love it
Buy this scrub, it's amazing!
Tabitha W. from Undisclosed
Leaves my skin feeling super smooth but also super moisturised! A little goes a long way which makes this great value. Good for your skin and good for the planet :earth_africa:... What's not to love? :heart:?:sparkles:
Rachel R. from Undisclosed
Amazing product, highly recommend. Huge improvements to my skin, has left it feeling clean and moisturised.
Rachel R. from Undisclosed
I love this face scrub! It has really improved my skin and has left it feeling really clean and moisturised not dry like a lot of other scrubs I have tried. Highly recommend!
I adore this brand!
Angharad P. from Undisclosed
I adore this brand! Its so wonderful and rare to find a brand that is so natural and eco friendly! The scrub smells amazing and makes your skin so soft and even though i've only been using it for a few weeks I really thinks its improved my skin; it feels cleaner, smoother and with less pimples. I would recommend this brand to everyone and will definitely be buying more of their products!
Clean and moisturise
Duncan, J. from Undisclosed
Deep cleansing and moisturising, it's a miracle
Not so great
BAM from TX
I was so excited to try this scrub but didn't live up to the hype! It smells like old coffee first of all, and leaves your skin feeling gross! Almost like I left a balm on my face! I gave it 2 stars just because it did exfoliate pretty well.
Where other face scrubs can
Sophie B. from Undisclosed
Where other face scrubs can feel drying on the skin, this leaves a lovely soft balm feeling after rinsing the scrub off - it feels like a scrub and moisturiser in one product!
Bought for my friend who
Sarah O. from Undisclosed
Bought for my friend who loves it and is now definitely converted to this amazing range!
Not a gimmick - this really works!
Becki R. from Undisclosed
Finally - a facial scrub that doesn't irritate my skin! The coffee smell is wonderfully invigorating, the scrub washed off easily, and my skin is really showing the benefit of using it. I love the fact that this is made with what would otherwise be a discarded by-product, too. But don't be fooled: this isn't just a gimmick riding on the "eco" wave. This really works!
Soft, Fresh and Minimises look of spots
Katharine P. from Undisclosed
I bought this for my daughter (17) so these are her words. She absolutely loves this, it leaves her skin feeling soft and fresh, and it has minimised her spots. She also loves that the ingredients are upcycled, plus being a coffee lover thats a double bonus. Her older sister (22) has started using it too and is going to buy her own.
The exfoliator I needed!
Fay K. from Undisclosed
When I first found UpCircle this was out of stock so I made a beeline for it when it was back! I use a couple of times a week and it's amazing. Not too harsh, wakes my skin up and is a great consistent exfoliator that lifts product build up so that the other products work even better. Recommended to my friend who also said she loves it!
