SCRUB YOU UP
We all know Frank, well some of you should know him. This Frank coffee scrub in original contains roasted, ground coffee beans, sweet almond oil, vitamin E and sea salt to help scrub away dry, flaky skin and target pesky skin conditions like cellulite, stretch marks, eczema, and psoriasis. There are other flavours in this coffee scrub range: coconut, cacao and peppermint to suit your needs.
The scrub itself isn’t too wet nor too dry. Frank is fine, course and messy to apply and would highly recommend applying it in your bath or shower. It does leave the bath/shower messy but it is easy to clean. I always apply this on dry skin as that’s how I find exfoliating at its best. I leave the scrub on for 5-10 minutes then wash off, and oh my, hello baby skin.
It does leave my skin so soft and smooth even without apply moisturiser but I generally apply a moisturiser afterwards. I’m currently stroking my legs whilst typing this up. This would definitely be great to use before applying fake tan, shaving etc. It works better than my REN sugar body scrub and Frank is cheaper. It has helped in reducing in grown hairs and has made my legs look more radiant. I’ve been having rough, dry skin on my elbows and this has helped them a lot. On my arms, it has helped reduce the pesky keratosis pilaris (aka chicken skin). With more use, I hope it’ll help get rid of it even more.
I don’t have any scarring or stretch marks so I cannot really comment on this. As for cellulite, I haven’t seen much improvement. I have used it on my face every now and again. During those times, it hasn’t broken me out nor have I seen any major improvements. I’m just going to stick to using it on the body as I hate to break my skin care routine.
I know it is a coffee scrub but coffee is one of my least favourite scents. I did get use to it and would definitely try out the peppermint one next time. The smell doesn’t linger around for long after you’ve washed it away which I am happy about. If you have sensitive skin, use the coconut oil one. Frank knows how to scrub you up well.
