Health & Wellbeing - Feb 2020

"Removing dead skin cells doesn't just make our skin feel soft, it gives it a brighter appearance. One of the most popular body exfoliator ingredients is coffee. Ground coffee can treat cellulite as it contains caffeine and targets redness, acting as a natural anti-inflammatory when used on your face and body. H&W Loves the UpCircle Coffee Body Scrub with Cacao."

SIMPLY VEGAN - FEB 2020

"Looking for beauty products that do more than just care for your skin? Say hello to UpCircle, our favourite new brand that uses waste, such as coffee grounds and brewed chai tea spices, from London's coffee shops to create a whole range of beauty products."

BALANCE - JAN 2020

"Shaking up a grooming routine means rejigging the whole ensemble of washing, cleansing and moisturising. We can heartily recommend UpCircle's Face Moisturiser for this. Inspired by its three founding pillars of "Reused, Repurposed, Reloved", this brand uses skin-loving ingredients such as coffee grounds, chai tea spices and discarded argan shells (rich in Vitamin E) and their products are suitable for all skin types."

BEAUTY BAY - JAN 2020

"In 2020 I’m going to work towards creating less waste that will be sent to landfill and put more thought into the products I’m buying. One of my favourite sustainable brands is UpCircle Beauty. They repurpose coffee beans left over from cafes in London to make their products, which smell amazing and make my skin feel super fresh."

VEGGIE - JAN 2020

"Hydrating Skincare Heroes: UpCircle Face Moisturiser. Saving valuable skin-loving ingredients from going to waste, UpCircle has created a new range which includes this deeply hydrating, fast absorbing face cream. Made with the fine powder of discarded argan shells (a rich source of Vitamin E), as well as cocoa butter, aloe vera and blood orange, the moisturiser helps to soothe, nourish and brighten skin."

NEW - JAN 2020

"The UpCircle Moisturiser is perfect for soothing dry, winter skin, and if your resolution is to be less wasteful this year, you'll love the entire range. The brand repurposes ingredients such as coffee grounds and argan shells to create eco-conscious products incuding face masks, scrubs and creams."

GLAMOUR - DEC 2019

"It turns out that coffee grounds and fruit stones contain a plethora of skin-loving nutrients – far too potent to simply rot away in landfill. Luckily, the industry is catching on. Back in 2015, William and Anna Brightman launched UpCircle – a brand that turns food waste into natural beauty products."

BUSTLE - DEC 2019

"If your skin needs a little more TLC during this time, forgo your usual cleanser in favour of something a little more soothing like the UpCircle balm cleanser. It's rich in antioxidants and helps to calm the skin."
