SCRUBLOVE REVIEW


I don't want no scrub, a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from meeeee ♪ 

Except for in this case where I want the scrub, I LIVE for the scrub. I mean who doesn't love some natural skin loving that leaves your skin looking glowy and luscious? In today's post I'll be reviewing one of my favourite body scrubs of all time, SCRUBLOVE!

Scrub Love is a 100% natural and organic coffee body scrub that has your skin feeling like silk and smelling like desserts. I've used my scrubs a few times now and I gotta say, I am hooked!



Each scrub (they have three types) has roasted organic Robusta coffee, essential oils and extra treats for your skin! Coffee is nature's best exfoliator but not only that its also anti-inflammatory, helps with cellulite and keeps your skin bright and fresh.


THE BREAK DOWN:

Original Lovin' (£11.95) has organic Robusta coffee, Pink Rock Salt, orange peel, Vitamin E & C, Sweet Almond Oil and Sweet Orange Oil. This is perfect for anyone taking their first step into the body scrub world. With the Pink Rock Salt and orange peel working its exfoliating magic, the oils and vitamins keep the skin nourished and bright! 

Coconut Affair (£13.95) has organic Robusta coffee, Coconut oil, Baobab oil, coconut flakes, coconut milk powder and sugar. If you have dry skin then this ones for you! Everything in this little package keeps your skin smooth and hydrated from the oils to the coconut milk powder which turns into coconut milk when you add water.

Mint Temptation (£12.95) has organic Robusta coffee, Argan oil, Aloe Vera, Tea Tree oil, Peppermint oil and Dead Sea Salt. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with problem skin. The Argan oil and Aloe Vera keep your skin soft and supple making sure theres no dry skin or rashes in sight! And the Tea Tree oil, Peppermint oil and Dead Sea Salt help heal the skin with its natural antiseptic properties. 

I have all three and love them, I have dry and sensitive skin and honestly these work like magic!


THE TEST: 

I tried all three scrubs and my oh my, my skin has never felt this soft or looked this glowy. Using this is pretty easy but a little messy, so follow the instructions! Get naked and get into your shower or bath tub - I learnt this the hard way when I tried to apply scrub to my arm for the photos. I got this stuff EVERYWHERE but luckily my hoover came to the rescue. So yeah, get into the tub and start the magic, start off by grabbing a handful and then gently rub the scrub on in circular motions. If you've got a few minutes to spare then they recommend leaving the scrub on, you might feel a bit awkward standing in your shower covered in coffee for 5 minutes so maybe bring your phone along. Once you've let its work its magic its time to rinse off the scrub and be reborn again when you see how luscious your skin is! I'm pretty impatient when it comes to waiting for things but believe me, those 5 minutes I spent standing in the tub looking like a coffee monster was so worth it. Even if its for a few minutes, you can definitely tell the difference in your skin.


This is when I made a mess of my room with the body scrub, it was okay at first but I forgot my fan was on oscillate so when it rotated to me there was a bit of a coffee disaster. Remember kids, always follow the instructions! 


And BAM! Look at that glow, that MOISTUREEE! Yo, honestly I was so happy at this moment. It was like the stars aligned and angels sang. I smelt like a dessert and looked like a glowing angel (no lie bro). 


All in all I'd give ScrubLove a 5/5 stars! It smells great and leaves you looking even better. Not to mention you can actually use this all over your body including your face. I've heard a few people say it's helped clear their skin up so maybe its worth trying it on your face too.

Anyhoo, I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and I hope it was helpful! If you have anything you'd like me to review do let me know in the comments. I'll pop ScrubLove's details below so you guys can check them out too!

Take care,
