SOMETIMES a beauty trend is fun and other times it’s just plan wacky. This is the case with this coffee scrub from Frank Body.
I’ve had this dry scrub sitting in my beauty cabinet for a few months, and have been meaning to try it out for a long time, so I finally ran a bath, opened up the package and had a nosey inside.
I’m not really sure what I was expecting, but most scrubs I have used come in a liquid state so that you can apply them with minimal mess. This was like opening up a tub of ground coffee beans!
The ingredients are basically coconut, coffee granules, sugar and salt… and when I used it in my bath (don’t do this!) it was literally like pouring an old caffetiere full of old coffee into my lovely hot water. I had to drain the bath and then start again, and I’m sorry to say this went straight in the bin! There’s not many beauty products I can’t get on with – but this was one mess too far.
Frank have some other lovely products in their range, but this one was not for me.
