    1. A coffee scrub that'll simultaneously wake you up and make you smell good. The added bonus? Soft skin you can't help but show off.

    coffee body scrub

    Promising review: "This scrub is amazing. It smells like a fresh brewed pot of coffee and it leaves my skin feeling crazy soft and moisturized. The scrub is not too abrasive, but it’s also not soft or in a gel or cream base. It’s loosely packed, but a little goes a long way. It’s helped me not get as many infected hairs and helped get rid of the textured 'chicken skin' bumps on my upper arms. After you rinse, the remaining oil feels very soft and hydrating, but not at all greasy. I use it every other day and have since bought other products from this brand. Highly recommend!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $16.99

    2. A cooling and relaxing rose quartz roller designed to help reduce the appearance puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines.

It is a great accent piece to pull a room together or buy two to use as additional seating with an upscale look. I love the fact that it has storage. I was able to fit a king size blanket. I replaced my ottoman with two. Looks lovelier than expected." —Target reviewer

    Price: $85

BUT I have been burning this for like two weeks now a few hours a day and it is only like a third of the way gone. It smells wonderful and is totally worth the money. Will be going back to buy more for a few other rooms in my house." —Target reviewer
