As most fake tan wearers know having a good body scrub is key to keeping your tan looking even and on point no matter how long its been on! A good friend suggested this brand which I had never heard of, so I had no clue what to expect. Prices range from £11.95 to £13.95 per pack.
Scrub love is an 100% natural brand who makes coffee based body scrubs to help keep you skin looking naturally vibrant. I got the Original Lovin’ which contains; Roast Organic Coffee, Pink Rock Salt, Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E, Sweet Orange Oil, Vitamin C, Organic Orange Peel. This is meant to buff away imperfections leaving you smooth, silky and smelling sublime.
When I first opened the pack straight away I noticed that it is different to all the scrubs I used pervious, not only is there a strong smell of coffee that wafts up from the bag, but also the texture of the scrub itself is dry and pretty much identical to what is left over in filtered coffee makers. As you can see from the picture there are no instructions on the pack, because of this I basically made it up as I went along, but let’s be honest what can go wrong with a body scrub. I took a small amount and rubbed in circular motions on damp skin to exfoliate, then washed off straight after. Just to prewarn you this scrub goes everywhere due to its texture, so I would suggest a thorough wash of the bathroom after use.
Straight after I washed off the scrub I could tell my skin felt oily as though there was still residue left behind. I usually find after I use a body scrub that my skin feels itchy and irritated, with this scrub I had no issues with that. My skin seems more moisturised and feels smoother, I was actually complimented on how glowing my skin looked which was a first…I love this scrub!
As I am sure you can tell I rate this scrub highly, yes you will smell like coffee for a few hours after and the clean up is a lot longer than I would like, but in all honesty, I saw results straight after the first use and my skin has never felt softer. For the amount of product, you get in one pack I would say it is fairly pricy, each pack will only give you 2-5 uses depending on how much you apply. I would still rate Scrub Love as 4.5/5 because the results are amazing.
Let me know if you have tried any of the other scrubs and which one you would suggest… Until next time
