Coffee Body Scrub? Tell me it’s a joke, I said when I first saw the article pop up in my feed on Facebook. I have a love/hate relationship with coffee, I LOVE the smell HATE the taste. Ok hate is a strong word, I DISLIKE the taste of coffee and not even sure when it started.
I am someone who exfoliates the whole body daily, I believe in getting rid of all the dead skin. I don’t exfoliate my face daily as I know it needs a breather due to being delicate. Ever since I picked up a pair of exfoliating gloves a few years back, I not looked back. Having tried a number of body scrubs over the years, I know which ones works well for my body. I love body scrubs as they leave my body feeling fresh after, but I havent tried coffee scrubs.
Coffee Body Scrub ~ Mint Temptation
Curiosity did indeed catch the cat and I went on to read further about benefits of using coffee body scrubs. When I was chosen to give the Coffee Body Scrub a try back in August, I took a chance and said yes. I had read enough articles about the advantages of using coffee scrubs, I wanted to try it for myself.
As mentioned already, I do love a good body scrub but coffee body scrub was something totally new to me. I get incorporating coffees in our foods since it’s a ‘food’ too but for beauty products?? I truly was intrigued and was happy to be asked to review the Mint Temptation Coffee Body Scrub.
PROs and CONs
When I first received the package, I was impressed with the design of the bag; simple but cute. Immediately upon opening the bag containing the coffee body scrub, I received an onslaught of strong mint smell. I love mint like the next person but just a tiny whiff and good lord my eyes watered. Though the mint scent was really strong, it was really refreshing after using the body scrub.
I decided one tiring night to use the coffee body scrub, I got so annoyed at all the coffee bits everywhere in my shower. I also made a mistake of using my white exfoliating gloves, 2 months on some bits are still there. Despite the annoyance, after use m body was left feeling fresh, rejuvenated and utter bliss washed over me. Apart from the great feeling I got, my skin felt tight and clean I guess it’s due to the caffeine.
