February is all about the KISS and our Bloom Lip Duo with Rose Petals wrapped in a sweet pink ribbon is the perfect gift..

Few things can comfort the soul quite like the smell of freshly bloomed coffee, except perhaps for the aroma freshly bloomed roses. Our sensuous Bloom Lip Duo marries these two exceptional scents to create a lip conditioning experience that will have you feeling like you are sipping your favorite coffee in a spring rose garden. This set smooths, plumps, and heals adding a light blush to your lips using only organic plant-based tint. As always this product uses only the highest quality ingredients, and our signature Smithsonian Certified Green Coffee. Gently exfoliate with our scrub to smooth, plump and prime your lips, then follow with our balm to heal, protect shine and tint.

The petals of the rose have been used in skincare for centuries because of their sweet smell and therapeutic benefits. This set includes a vial of crushed Organic Dried Rose Petals for you to add to a bath soak, face steam or other skincare DIY for a decadent skin-soothing experience.

Rose Latte Anyone?

You’ve probably noticed that all of us here at JAVA Skin Care “LO💖E” coffee (although “love” may not be a strong enough word). What you might not know is that some of our products are directly inspired by our team’s favorite coffee drinks. So, when we tried a Rose Latte for the first time, we knew the aromatic combination of coffee and roses would make a heavenly combination for a lip kit – and the Bloom Lip Duo was born!

And now, we’re dropping some barista knowledge on you and showing you how we make a creamy, caffeinated, floral rose latte:

  • Pulling a perfect shot of Espresso – Layer finely ground fresh coffee into your portafilter and use your tamper to press the grinds down with approximately 30 pounds of pressure to form an even surface. Next, insert your portafilter into the espresso machine and place your cup underneath. When you press the button to brew the shot it should take about 20 to 30 seconds to complete. The brew should start out dark and change into a golden brown foamy liquid called the crema.  
  • Infusing the Roses into Milk – Add about 8oz of the milk of your choice to a frothing pitcher with a tablespoon of organic dried rose petals, then heat and froth the milk to approximately 150 degrees, infusing the flavor of roses into your milk.  
  • Build your Drink – Add your shot of espresso to your mug, then strain the milk on top of the espresso making sure to that steamed rose petals don’t make it past your spoon. Spoon any leftover milk foam on top. Crush a pinch of your organic dried rose petals and then sprinkle them on top of your latte.  
  • Now take a totally Insta-Worthy picture of your creation and enjoy. Then grab yourself a JAVA Bloom Duo so you never have to be far from the exceptional aromas of coffee and roses ever again!

Enjoy!
