{September Must Have} Mint Coffee Body Scrub

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.

About the product: From Love Scrub website

Perfect blend of organic ingredients with a mint kick will leave anyone tempted.. Tea tree mixed with amazing argan oil will cool and moisturize. While more than a hint of mint will stimulate circulation with this organic scrub – leaving you polished to perfection.

Mint Temptation Ingredients: peppermint oil, roast organic coffee, argan oil, tea tree oil, dead sea salt and aloe vera.

overall I think this mint temptation coffee scrub is great (at least for my skin) and works amazingly. Would I consider using this coffee scrub again, I would say a loud resounding yes.

*I was sent the coffee body scrub in exchange for an honest review, regardless all opinions are my own.*

    I used to use old coffee grind when I was younger after I’d heard how coffee helped getting rid of cellulite (I didn’t yet have, but you know… Kids! Ha!) so I’d love to give this one a go! Sounds perfect and the minty smell sounds so refreshing!

    • October 23, 2016 / 10:13 pm

      Oh wow for real, I only thought of coffee as a drink nothing more but this has proven me wrong.

    • October 22, 2016 / 10:40 am
