Babe Coffee Body Scrub

Caffeine And Such...

I had never thought to rub coffee grounds all over my body. That was until I got a sample of the Babe Body Scrub in a sample bag at the Perth Bloggers Meetup. This scrub comes equipped with an intoxicating scent of coffee that is sure too wake up even the worst 'non-morning person' offenders. It's so simple to use, but a tad messy. I just stand in the shower and grab a handful of the mixture out of the snap lock pouch and add a bit of water and scrub, scrub all over my body. I concentrate on the areas that need a bit more care, like my legs. 
This is a mighty exfoliating mixture of sugar, ground coffee beans and mineral salts as well as added sweet almond oil and lavender essential oil for extra aroma. 
So why coffee you may ask? Well coffee is well known for its caffeine and that can temporarily reduce the look of cellulite and create a firmer and smoother appearance.
 How? Caffeine draws water from cells, making them smaller, constricting blood vessels slightly, thus creating a smoother and even toned skin.
Verdict: Did it make my skin smooth? Yes it did! All the scrubby bits work really well and the coffee stimulated my blood and resulted in firmer feeling skin after about ten minutes of washing it off.
Did I smell of coffee all day? No unfortunately I didn't, however someone should invent a coffee flavoured perfume because its so delicious!

Babe Body Scrub comes in:
Coffee Body Scrub
Green Tea Body Scrub
 Himalayan Pink Salt Body Scrub

  1. Wow, how cool! I make my own coffee scrubs using the ground coffee that's left behind after I had brewed a pot (I make the scrub by mixing ground coffee + coarse sugar + olive oil), but this one sounds good, too. :o)


I love to read your comments, I would love to hear your thoughts, thanks!
