There are many things I love to do with my time, but treating myself to a relaxing at-home spa treatment is easily one of my favourites. Frank Body’s Original Coffee Scrub takes the experience to a whole new level of bliss.
Unsurprisingly, I discovered this scrub when trawling through my Instagram feed. As a passionate lover of all things beauty related, I did some quick research on the brand and then clicked ‘add to cart’ with lightning speed!
There are two scrubs to choose from: Original or Coconut & Grapeseed. I decided to choose the original before trying the coconut because it’s cheaper ($14.95 vs. $17.95), but now that I’ve tried it I can’t wait to buy the second! The scrub claims to target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne with roasted and ground arabica coffee beans, brown sugar and sea salt. It also aims to moisturize and tone with a combination of almond oil, orange essence and vitamin E.
The scrub has the appearance and smell of ground coffee, but the scent of orange and almond is definitely apparent, giving it a hint of sweetness. Because the scrub is so loose, it has to be applied in the shower (be warned – it gets messy!). Personally I don’t mind the mess.. if anything I think it adds to the fun! My only gripe is the amount of product wasted when you apply it. However, I found that using small handfuls at a time helped to reduce this problem. The instructions on the back of the packet are to apply the scrub with circular motions to damp skin, then leave for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.
The results? After using the scrub ONCE, my skin was as smooth as a baby’s bottom! After just one use, my skin looked healthy, rejuvenated and smelled incredible!
I will repurchase this scrub without a doubt, and I honestly recommend it to everyone! This is one of those lucky finds that will capture your heart and refuse to let go.
