Change Up Your Skin Care with SkinYoga

Normally I like to keep my skincare routine as simple as possible but I do like to venture into the unknown from time to time. On this occasion I am venturing into a new skin care range Skin Yoga. A brand that was started and owned by three sisters Radhika, Jargriti and Deepika. They believe in the essence of natural remedies, and this belief is what led to the beginnings of their brand Skin Yoga. I was very lucky to be able to try two of their products; The Coffee Body Scrub and The Post Work Out Neem Purifier. Before I talk to you more about their products I just thought I should tell you a little more about my skin type and my skin care routine. I am very unlucky with my skin, I have super dry and sensitive skin and there are certain ingredients that I am not allowed to use, I also suffer from Eczema. I like to use a moisturiser on a regular basis to try and achieve silky smooth skin. However knowing how often to apply moisturiser can be difficult, but I know  I need to moisturise everyday. So, I was very excited when these naturally products with pressed oils came my way. I would be able to use these scrubs to help with my skin type, to keep my skin soft, hydrated but to also venture into scrubs, which normally dry out my skin. I couldn't wait to try them.

First up, I want to tell you all about the Coffee Body Scrub. Over the last few years there's been a lot of hype about coffee scrub and to be honest I was a little dubious, but I did a little research and I found that there are so many benefits to using a coffee scrub regularly. This coffee scrub is amazing. Amazing for the body, amazing for the mind and even more amazing on the nose. With its ingredients list of Ground Coffee Beans, Pure Coconut Oil and Pure Sesame Oil this coffee scrub will tackle acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scarring and psoriasis. And oh no it doesn’t stop there either! With naturally pressed oils; Coconut and Seasame, tightening and moisturising your skin will get an overall mini makeover in the comfort of your own shower
You simply take small handfuls of the coffee scrub and apply onto wet skin in shower. Scrub your entire body for 5-7 minutes. Follow with your routine shower. It's that simple. As soon as I opened the packet, I was bombarded with the glorious aroma of roasted coffee beans. It smells so amazing that coffee lovers won’t be able to resist this. Since the scrub contains naturally pressed oils, when washing it off I could feel the oil still on my skin. Once patted down with a towel, the oiliness reduces and in about 15 minutes the remaining oils completely soaks into my skin, and I am left with a well hydrated, butter smooth and supple skin with absolutely no stickiness or greasiness.
The real reason why I was so excited to use this product is that Skin Yoga claims that is helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, as I have only used it a few times I cannot confirm that it does but my skin definitely feels tighter and firmer. Since this is formulated with organic coffee beans, it should help with cellulite over continuous usage. The moisturizing and nourishing part, yes its true that people with dry skin will absolutely love it.  Overall I had a pleasant experience with this scrub and I am liking it too. This Coffee Body Scrub retails at Rs.1,795.00 INR which works out to be around £21.43, which to some can be on the expensive side, but honestly it's done wonders for my skin so far and would make the perfect gift for someone special.                    

Next up we tried our the Post Work Out Neem Purifier. This purifier is packed with naturally sourced ingredients of Barley Powder, Pure Coconut Meal and Pure Neem Leaves, again I was curious about the benefits of the such natural ingredients and did some research. It seems as if Neem Leaves are a great answer to solve most skin problems. The bitterness of the Neem Leaves will help you get rid of bacteria and some skin allergies, as I sufferer from Eczema I was very interested in the benefits of the Neem Leaves. If you use this product regularly it is aimed helped with body odour, which is perfect after a work out. Furthermore, the Post Work Out Neem Purifier has anti-inflammatories and medicinal body wash qualities which is the perfect way to help your body and your skin post exercise.

You simply take small handfuls of the Neem Purifier and apply onto wet skin in shower. Scrub your entire body for 5-7 minutes. Follow with your routine shower. As soon as I opened the packet, I was bombarded with the glorious aroma of coconut. It smells so amazing. It’s strong and overwhelming that it made my whole bathroom smell like coconut. I was expecting a bitter fragrance because of neem in this, instead I was mildly surprised that it had a strong fragrance of coconut. The powder is soft to the touch, but when you mix it with water, it gets a slightly rough texture that allows you to massage your body with it. I made it into a slightly runny paste and massaged it well. When I washed it off with warm water, my skin was moisturised and felt nourished.

This natural body scrub made my skin feel squeaky clean and radiant without making my skin feel dry, it's perfect for my skin type. This is a really good scrub for the underarms. The addition of barley is amazing as it is known for gentle exfoliation and their oils without drying up the skin. This product does both. The Post Work Out Neem Purifier retails at Rs.1,990.00 INR, which works out to be around £23.76 which again to some can seem expensive but if you think of all the benefits of the Neem Purifier I am more than sure you will see it's worth.                 

Overall, I do have to say that  I thoroughly enjoyed using these products from Skin Yoga. I love the fact that there are 100% natural ingredients, preservative free, paraben free, cruelty free and vegan friendly.  For me, I would have to say that I preferred the Coffee Body Scrub compared to the Post Work Out Neem Purifier. Only because I feel as if my skin benefitted from the coffee scrub more than the purifier. So, I would definitely buy the coffee scrub again, despite the price tag.


  1. How lovely that you've found some products suitable for your skin. They sound absolutely gorgeous, especially that they moisturise without leaving a greasy residue, which is ideal.

  2. Ooh that coffee scrub sounds lovely and like it'd be right up my street! I'm such a sucker for the smell and taste of coffee! I suffer with eczema too so maybe I need to try this brand out, love that they're natural too!
