I had an e-mail a few week back about trying out Scrub Love. I didn’t know what to expect as I’m not a fan of scrubs. I just hate the feel of having bitty things on my body and face.
I wasn’t sure which one I was getting, either. There’s three types: Original, mint and coconut. I was sent the mint one.
The idea behind coffee scrubs is that coffee is a great exfoliator, it’s natural way of removing dead skin cells and also helps to boost circulation – which is great for healing problem skin.
The mint one I was sent has tea tree oil, argan oil and mint so it’s a great way to moisturise and improve circulation.
A word of warning – this is messy! It reminds me a bit of wet tobacco or textured dirt in how it feels. I’m sure you can imagine, as it’s made of coffee, when it contacts water it spreads and runs brown. I used this in the shower and needed to wash it down afterwards. I also found it quite hard to wash off my skin.
But the smell. THE SMELL.
I’m saving this for when I have a cold because this bad boy totally got into all my senses. It made my whole bathroom smell of mint and I imagine when you’re feeling stuffy, this is going to unblock all!
It did make my skin feel soft, but it’s the smell that really did it for me.
If you’re planning on trying this, please get the mint!
