I love a good body scrub, especially one that eliminates the need for moisturizing after my shower! Coffee scrubs specifically are very popular right now due to the fact that the caffeine in coffee grounds have many skin benefits. It stimulates blood flow which can help reduce the look of cellulite, stretch marks and acne.
Jealous Body Scrub recently added a few additional products to their lineup and I had the chance to try the Grapeseed + Macadamia Coffee Scrub ($18.95 CAD).
The new collection of scrubs are targeted to all different skin types, this one is meant for oily skin. My skin is more on the dry side, but I have been having issues with breakouts on my chest and back lately so I still wanted to give it a try. This scrub was still very hydrating but also helped my get a bit of extra exfoliation on those problem areas.
The key ingredients are cold pressed grapeseed oil which helps to treat acne and macadamia nut oil which helps balance oil production.
Look out because this scrub can get really messy! Use it in the shower on a day when you have a few extra minutes to clean up. Those little coffee grinds like to get into every nook and cranny of your tub and shower! I really enjoyed this body scrub (big surprise) and my skin felt smooth and moisturized afterward. It is less hydrating than the original formula, but I assume that’s because it’s targeting acne prone skin?
This package lasts me about a month and a half if I use it once a week. If you love coffee AND skincare you definitely need to try this out!
