Today I want to share about the product which was mentioned in my summer beauty favourites.
And it’s a Soaper Duper Ginger Root & Eucalyptus Salt Scrub. I’ve bought quite a few products from the brand recently, and really loved all of them, however, the scrub really stood out to me.
While retailing for only £12, it feels like a luxury high-end product but for the fraction of the price. The texture, the smell, the results, everything is just brilliant about this scrub.

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?
If you are a regular reader, you probably know that I am not a big fan of scrubs with very small particles and love my body scrubs to be really exfoliating but gentle.
Philosophy Pure Grace Hot Salt Scrub is the kind of scrub that I like.
The coolest thing about this scrub is that it warms up when you rub it in your (dry) skin for one-two minutes, as the brand suggests.
It leaves the skin silky and smooth – exactly what we want from a scrub. I would say that it does help battle the dryness on knees and elbows, too. I also find that my creams absorb better after this scrub.
The scent is not overwhelming and is not intense, so
I love a good body scrub and I do love Clarins. Clarins make two body scrubs: Toning Body Polisher and Smoothing Body Scrub , and I actually have both.
They both are very different but both are brilliant. So which one is the best for you?
Toning Body Polisher, £30/$40 for 200 ml
This is my personal favoutite and there are a lot of reasons for that. First of all, I love the texture, it’s a mix of sugar, salt crystals and essential body oils. I love how super smooth and silky my skin feels afterwards. I personally use it on the dry skin and the effect is fantastic. Plus you don’t need that much, which I was surprised about, as usually with a similar texture, you end up using lots of product.
One more thing that I absolutely have to mention is the scent! I love
heavily scented body products so this one is a perfect one for me! It combines essential oils of Rosemary, Rosewood and Mint. And it is strong! But I personally find that it lifts my spirit and improves my mood. I can feel the aroma of the scrub even in the other rooms and it stays in the bathroom for some time.
But if you want something more delicate and with
