If you have been around my blog for quite a long time, you may recall that I have tried out a coffee scrub before, so the concept is not brand new to me. Coffee scrubs are a great way to exfoliate your skin to reveal your best skin first, which is likely something that people will be wanting as it gets closer and closer to summer. This time around I got to try out the Jealous Body Coconut + Coffee Body Scrub and let me guide you through my experience with this product.
First of all, the labels with the packaging are really simple and straight forward and aesthetically pleasing to my eyes. I’m a sucker for any sort of deep mint colour, which is apparently supposed to by “my birthday colour” or something like that. To get this wondrous product to work its magic, all you have to do is take the scrub with you in the shower or tub, take a handful of the scrub, and rub it on your body (works best on wet skin to help it cling to your skin better) in a circular motion. Leave the Jealous Body scrub on for 5 to 10 minutes, and then rinse it off to reveal your soft and exfoliated skin. When I saw to bring it in the shower with you, I mean it. Any sort of coffee scrub gets really messy and I made sure to include a photo to demonstrate the mess it creates.
This product is jammed packed with all sorts of wonderful natural ingredients in it. The list of ingredients include: premium robusta coffee, organic cold pressed coconut oil, raw brown sugar, sea salt, vitamin E and minerals. Each ingredients was chosen for specific reasons to give your skin the best exfoliation and treatment possible! The coffee grounds stimulate blood flow, which help reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis and acne. Cold pressed organic coconut oil hydrates and moisturizes your skin, which you have likely already read tons about when coconut oil blew up on the internet as one of the best natural beauty ingredients these days. Brown sugar and sea salt exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. The vitamin E and minerals work to protect and repair your skin. See what I mean? Absolutely full of great and natural ingredients!
An added bonus to this product is that you will leave the shower smelling like you might have just bathed with a pot of coffee. Coffee lovers rejoyce! I’m sure if you washed yourself after the scrub the scent would not be that strong at all. I was pleasantly delighted with the scent and can’t wait to get messy with this scrub again soon! Sometimes people can get worried about how rough a scrub may be, but I will say that this is one of the softer coffee scrubs I have tried so far. You only need a handful or two with each use, and this product comes in bags of 200g of scrub at a time. This first bag is going to last me a good amount of time before I place an order for a second bag. If you are interested in ordering a bag for yourself, head on over to the Jealous Body website here to read more and place your order.
What do you think of this coffee scrub trend? I definitely think it is something worth giving a try and jumping on the bandwagon with… and just in time for summer too!
