Getting Minty Fresh With Scrublove

Getting Minty Fresh With Scrublove

Coffee scrubs seem to be everywhere at the moment and so many brands keep popping up with their own versions. I was a little skeptical because I am not a huge lover of the smell of coffee (I know blogging faux pas) but when Scrublove offered me the chance to try one and mint temptation* was an option I jumped at the chance because I love anything with a minty smell. I’m pretty bad at any form of a regular skincare routine, I fall in and out of loving things/ remembering to use them and exfoliation is something I’m pretty bad at. I’m lucky that my skin in general is not prone to overly dry patches/ eczema etc but it’s something I need to get a handle on, especially with the colder weather threatening to approach.

Firstly the packaging is awesome. It’s a pretty simple design but the sachet is resealable so you don’t have to worry about leaving a trail of coffee debris if you knock it over (which happens often with me). And you get a pretty hefty amount of product in each packet so it’s one of those things which is going to last a long time. You can even smell the mintyness through the packaging which is amazing but I was a little worried that when I opened it the coffee scent would be overpowering. Thankfully I was wrong and the mixture of products left for a minty fresh mixed scent with just a hint of coffee *hooray*


Everything in the scrub is 100% natural and organic with almond oil, pink Himalayan rock salt, bitter orange peel among other bits and there are no chemicals included which is great as occasionally my skin just decides to get super sensitive without warning. Scrublove themselves pride themselves on searching the planet for the best ingredients that have the most skin benefits to hydrate, soften, moisturize, nourish and polish the skin while fighting the flake and tackling cellulite. Definitely my kinda product.

Now the most important part is how it performed, in all honesty I had reasonably high hopes as I had read somewhere that Coffee is nature’s best exfoliator and to be honest, I don’t exfoliate my skin anywhere near as much as I should. Unlike some exfoliators the coffee scrub isn’t too grainy so it doesn’t drag over the skin like some others but it is messy; like make sure you don’t even open this outside of your shower or bath because it will go everywhere. You only need a handful of product and it’s just a case of using a bit at a time rubbing in circular motions all around for the product to get to work.

Coffee scrub

If you can I’d definitely recommend standing in your shower for a few minutes with the scrub on before washing it off but either way my after rinsing the scrub off my skin felt noticeably smoother and silkier.

The package suggests using this 3-4 times a week but I tend to find I only have the time to do things like this once or twice a week at the weekends when I am not on in a rush to get to work. Using it on this scale I can see this lasting a few months which for £12.95 is a great deal considering how good my skin felt afterwards.

Have you tried a coffee scrub? What do you think of it?

    I love body scrubs, highly scented ones I adore. Coffee scrubs have so many skin benefits it’s unbelievable. I always keep a coffee scrub handy. Nice to see another company on the horizon to pick from x

    I love body scrubs but this sounds a little too messy for me… I do love the thought of the minty coffee smell though!

    I am intrigued! I can see how this would be great to exfoliate the skin, and as a coffee lover I’d love the smell! 🙂

    I’m not a huge coffee drinker and I’d probably like this scrub a lot. The mint sounds really nice!

    I’ve been testing out this scrub too and I utterly love it. The smell is amazing and really helped clear up my cold!

    So many people have been bragging about this scrub that I’m getting curious.
    I had a homemade body from ground coffee, brown sugar and olive oil that a friend of mine made for me, but it’s finished so I might give this one a go.

    I haven’t tried a coffee scrub mainly because I don’t like the smell of coffee either! This mint one sounds great though, so I might need to give it a try x
