Nyakio is a natural skincare brand that draws on beauty traditions from around the world to help give you healthier, glowing skin.

One of its top-rated, best-sellers is the Kenyan Coffee Face Polish ($32), which is inspired by a coffee scrub created by the founder's own grandmother in Kenya.

Packed with beneficial ingredients like shea butter and aloe vera juice, the face scrub gently exfoliates without irritating or drying out your skin, immediately leaving it smooth and soft.

As if you didn't love coffee enough already, it has another benefit: it's a great natural exfoliant for your skin.

Nyakio Kamoche Grieco knew this long before "DIY face scrub" began reigning search results and Pinterest a few years ago. The founder of natural skincare brand nyakio , Grieco used to visit her grandmother in Kenya, and it was her grandmother, a coffee farmer, who taught her to crush and rub coffee beans on her skin with a piece of sugarcane to remove dead cells.

Inspired by this experience, Grieco started curating more beauty secrets from her family, friends, and travels, eventually turning them into a full skincare line that pays homage to underrepresented cultural beauty traditions through the use of ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients.

A variation of the coffee scrub that prompted her journey is now one of nyakio's best-sellers, and after trying this Kenyan Coffee Face Polish myself, I want to personally shake Grieco's grandmother's hand.

The face scrub has a 4.5 rating from more than 1,500 reviews on Ulta , with the overwhelming majority of reviewers reporting that it was gentle, improved their skin texture, and cleaned their face effectively. I've been using it a few times a week for a few weeks now, and I have to agree.

I usually shy away from face scrubs because they irritate or dry out my skin, causing me to break out even more. Nyakio's , however, actually left my face feeling smoother and softer after just one use because it contains nourishing ingredients like organic shea butter, jojoba, aloe vera juice, baobab (a tree native to the African continent) oil, and nettle leaf extract. Meanwhile, it's free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates.

The jury seems divided on its scent, and I'm with the side that doesn't think it has the most pleasant smell. However, I've continued using the scrub nonetheless because it's gentle while scrubbing out dead, dry skin cells, and I don't have to use a lot to see and feel its effects.

You can check out nyakio's other products if you're interested in more natural, globally-inspired formulations. Another top-rated, best-selling item is the Red Ginseng Line Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream , which uses powerful red ginseng from China to soften the look of fine lines and moisturize the delicate eye and lip areas. Countries including Peru, Egypt, and Morocco are also represented in the rest of the nyakio line .
