Give your beauty routine a jolt with coffee-based products
Let’s face it: The holidays are non-stop hustle and bustle. There’s shopping, baking, traveling and endless parties—never mind that you probably had to squeeze in some work and maybe even a workout, too.
If coffee kept you going throughout the season, you’re surely not alone.
But coffee isn’t just for drinking. The beauty industry is, well, buzzing with products made with coffee that boast a variety of benefits. Here’s a look at some of the best to refresh your routine in 2015:
