From Frank Body, a cheeky Australian company that swears by the beauty effects of java, comes their original coffee scrub. The entire skincare line is coffee-based in fact, and promises to scrub away dry, flaky skin and ‘target pesky skin conditions like cellulite, stretch marks, eczema, and psoriasis.’ The way it works is that the high caffeine content of the freshly ground beans stimulates blood flow targeting cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema, acne, and scarring. We liked that it was all natural, and got rid off ALL our dead skin. Smelling like coffee was just a bonus. From, well, Frank. $14.99 US and ships anywhere.
When we need a luxurious treat, this is our go-to, a moisturizing peppermint sugar scrub from LALICIOUS ( $35) which gently sloughs away dry skin to reveal a more youthful, even skin tone. Made with pure sugar cane crystals and coconut and almond oils that nourish and deeply moisturize skin, it leaves you feeling cool and fresh. Simply scoop a generous amount of the whipped sugar scrub into hands at the end of your shower or bath and massage into skin, buffing in a circular motion and rinse with warm water. Smells good enough to eat (but not recommended.)
This drugstore brand has legions of fans, who online rave about how it helps get rid of blemishes on the skin and exfoliates legs, feet and elbows The St. Ives scrub “works even better than it smells”said one user. All natural and can’t beat the price at $3.29. We find it too harsh to use every day so only use it 3x a week. Buy at any drugstore or Target.
