After nearly 6 months of my social media feeds blowing up with practically every girl being covered in Frank body scrub from head to toe, I have finally found a scrub that not everyone has tried and tested, and that I don’t have to wait 10-14 working days for it to turn up on my door step. Not that I have anything bad to say about Frank of course!
I found a coffee scrub by Aromatherapy Co. in Farmers a few weeks ago, and after using it every week since I think it’s a better time than most to share my beautifully smooth experience!
But first, lets get get down to the important stuff… Aromatherapy Co. are committed to creating pure and natural body care; which means their products are free from parabens; which overtime can pose a health risk, and fragrances which can irritate the skin. Their products are also not tested on animals. Hooray!
This scrub is packed full of goodness! With grape seed oil, beeswax and coconut oil to help remove dead skin cells and dirt, to help brighten your skin and help it feel buffed and smooth. It can also help target cellulite, stretch marks and dryness due to the antioxidant properties in the coffee.
I don’t dampen my skin before hand as the scrub is already quite wet. I apply the scrub all over my body (but not my face), and usually rub the scrub into my skin for about 2 minutes, focusing on any dry skin parts, before getting into the shower and washing it off
After using the scrub my skin felt so much smoother and hydrated, I couldn't stop feeling my arms! Didn't have to moisturise afterwards as this scrub is already quite hydrating. It also smells great!
I use this scrub once a week, but you can use it anywhere from 1 - 3 times a week if you wish!
The only down side is getting the granules all over the bathroom floor, so I would suggest standing on a towel or bath mat that your can easily chuck in the washing machine after scrubbing yourself down.
