For months I have wanted to try out a coffee-based body scrub.
The biggest issue I kept running into was that so many of the Instagram-famous scrubs didn’t ship into Canada. Well, that was until I stumbled across Frank Body Scrub.
Frank Body Scrub is available worldwide which means finally, us Canadian girl’s can have gorgeous, exfoliated, and moisturized skin that’s promised from coffee-based scrubs. Best of all, Frank does not test on animals and only uses all natural ingredients!
Over the last few years I have thought I should take better care of my skin on both my face and body by creating a more set routine; And so, when I kept seeing reviews and photos online of Frank Body Scrub results, I knew it was something I wanted to try out.
The results and reviews online appeared to be immediate and showed smoother, healthier, and glowing skin – I mean, who doesn’t want that? And even more so now, with Jer & I planning our next trip out, I want something that’ll give me healthier looking skin while I am beach-bound and bikini-clad.
Frank Body Peppermint Scrub Review
I received my scrub in the mail on Friday and couldn’t wait to try it out. So, first thing Saturday morning I decided to give the Peppermint Coffee Scrub a whirl.
All I can really say about it is: I’m totally hooked. I suppose I should’ve known right away that I would fall in love with Frank, since I am pretty much obsessed with all things mint.
I LOVED how intensely our bathroom smelled of peppermint, it was so fresh and invigorating.
Now, before jumping into the review, let me first give you a little history on my skin: I have never been one to consider my skin “problematic”.
Though I’ve considered so many other parts of myself “problem areas” (ahem, hair, stomach, smile) I have always actually been pretty okay with my skin.
My biggest issue when it does come to my skin is dryness, a problem experienced especially in the winter months, or when my hypothyroidism decides to take a nose-dive.
What first struck me was the scent. Upon opening the bag, the mixture of coffee + peppermint was so rich and refreshing, it immediately woke me up.
Once I applied the scrub all over (even my face!) I then rubbed the gritty coffee grinds into my skin in circular motions as it’s noted on the Frank Body Scrub instructions.
While the grinds exfoliated my skin, I noticed that the peppermint left a cool tingly feeling which was equally as refreshing as the scent itself!
After a few minutes, I rinsed off my Frank Body Peppermint Coffee scrub and immediately I noticed that my skin felt smoother. Over the next few hours I also felt like I could tell that my skin looked a bit more moisturized and glowy.
The one downside of this scrub? It’s super messy. Like, seriously it gets all over the shower. If you’re willing to deal with a bit of a mess, then I feel the results are worth it.
