Today I want to share about my latest discovery which I love and recommend – Frank Body, Australian brand, and their Cocoa Coffee body scrub in particular.
Before I talk about the product, I just wanted to mention that the brand has gotten every little detail thought through. A cool story about five friends who came up with this idea, quirky fun, and sometimes naughty, which always gets a thumbs up from me, descriptions and pretty design and colours [of the packaging].
In our time and age, when we mostly buy experience, this is crucial, and people behind Frank Body clearly understand that.
There are a few scrubs to choose from over at Cult Beauty (100g – £7.95; 200g – £13.95) Original, Coconut, Peppermint and Shimmer which all come in different colour packaging and with different fun blurbs. The one I have comes in a pretty lilac waterproof bag and has a chocolate cake reference. I’ve just transferred some scrub to a pretty pot I’ve had.
What about the scrub itself?
I am completely obsessed! Not only it smells absolutely insane-out-of-this-world, think freshly brewed morning coffee paired with a lush chocolate cake, it also is very effective.
How do I use it? Just apply to the wet skin, massage it and leave for about 2 minutes. Voila!
I honestly can’t think of a better way to start a day [a few times a week], not only it awakens your senses but also leaves your skin very soft and smooth. Exfoliated and nourished [skin], silky like a baby’s bum. I also find that it is moisturised enough because of the oils, and doesn’t need any cream on top. Yes, please!
I’ve tried a few coffee body scrubs, and love this one the most. Yes, you could make one yourself but I do not drink coffee, unless in a coffee shop, so don’t have a coffee machine which would make it impossible. And what’s the point of buying coffee for the scrub when I could just buy this? Plus, I am not a fan of DIYing when I can already get a “ready-to-be-used” product. That is not laziness, I just don’t want to be sourcing all the right oils and figuring out proportions when people already did it all for me. And brilliantly, may I add. You can see the list of the ingredients above. However, if you do want to experiment, a quick Google search shows that there are so many uses for grounds, for example it can be used as a hand-scrub or for beer brewing
On top of it all, Frank Body is vegan and cruelty free.
