My skin took a major beating this winter – and for someone like me who has a very oily complexion to actually see dry patches of skin is the weirdest thing to encounter. Jealous Body Scrub contacted me just in time to try out their Coffee + Coconut Scrub. As Jealous Body Scrub contains premium robusta coffee mixed with cold pressed 100% pure organic coconut oil, raw brown sugar, sea salt, vitamin E and other minerals – that alone already had me sold. Not only that, but it promises to reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis, and acne (yay!).
In all honesty, I was impressed at first scrub. Even for a non-coffee drinker as myself, I admit the smell is delicious. Funny enough the package states, “I am made up of natural ingredients & it’s tempting, but please don’t eat me”. But being the curious rebel that I am I still went in for a lick…and just as the package says, please don’t attempt to eat it!
This gets messy however I don’t mind the mess since it’s so much fun to rub all over your body (I felt a serious sense of relaxation actually). As I washed it off after the recommended 5-10 minutes, my skin was as smooth as butter. My hands were so soft that as I was shampooing my hair, they fooled me into thinking my hair had suddenly become soft and smooth as well. Even as I dried myself off my skin stayed super moisturized. The coffee smell did linger onto my skin just a bit but it was nothing that was bothersome.
Since the coffee grounds work wonders as an exfoliator; even into the next day my skin stayed soft and smooth. I noticed my complexion was also even brighter. I love this scrub so much that it’s all I’ll be using to prep my skin into the Spring.
