Review: Tonymoly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-In Scrub

I know that most of us cannot live without coffee. Some of us are even crazy over coffee!

What is there NOT to love about coffee?

Its aroma is heavenly...
Its taste is sophisticated...
... and it somehow energizes us...
... keeping us awake and alert for the rest of the day

No, I'm not enticing you to buy coffee beans, or head to your nearest coffee shop!

But, close enough...

Last year, I ordered the Memebox Special # 39: Cafe Box, and I was delighted to see the Tonymoly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-In Scrub.

And, I got to try it regularly! I'm happy to say that I've been using this twice a week since I got it!

This is how it looks now:

After months of use, there's still a lot of product left! I bet this would last me for a year, too!

This scrub promises to exfoliate the skin, and 'massage' it afterwards. It promises to remove dirt from clogged pores, and it claims to be hypoallergenic.


  • Very cute and convenient packaging
  • Easy to wash off
  • Easy to apply
  • Gentle on skin
  • Exfoliates and turns into a massaging cream
  • A little goes a long way 
  • Lovely coffee scent 


  • None


No doubt about it - packaging is sooo cute! I could keep this forever! It's cute and compact, and it's pretty easy to carry around. I think it's mostly made of clear plastic, which is probably the reason why it didn't break when I accidentally dropped it on the floor. Plus, it comes with a spatula, too!

Not much English information is printed on the container, though. Except for a short product description, it doesn't contain anything else. Not even the list of ingredients, but no worries for me! I'm almost always ready to forage the Internet for information.

Despite the lack of printed information on the container, I'm relieved because the manufacturing date and batch code are both on the packaging.


There's no doubt about it; this thing smells absolutely delicious! It smells almost like cappuccino! Cappuccino lovers, rejoice!!!

Although it's made predominantly of sugar crystals (as evidenced by the gritty crystals shown on photo), it's a bit surprising that it's not abrasive on the skin at all! It doesn't hurt, no matter how hard I try to rub it on my skin!

And the fun part is, it turns creamy after a few rubs! Hence, no abrasions!

From brown, it turns white, too!

Did I mention that this particular scrub gives a 'heating effect' to the skin as well? It surely 'warms' the skin for a while, making it a bit more relaxing to the skin.

Most of all, it's very easy to wash off, too!


You'd be glad to hear that this product is not just a cutesy cosmetic, because it does work!

Regular use of this scrub has helped 'clean' my pores. They became tighter and cleaner over time. I think it has improved the condition of my skin as well. I rarely experience breakouts - perhaps because of the 'cleaner' pores.


I love this product so much because it's cute and it works! And, it smells great, too!

I could also say that it's worth the money. This scrub, which retails at almost Php 600 each, could possibly last you a year. Not bad, eh? 


Of course, I will!

How about you? Have you used this scrub before?/

What do you think?
