Buddy Body Scrub - Your Friend With Benefits

Right now I am obsessed with body scrubs that a little bit different - Coffee, Tea and Activated Charcoal to name but a few. So when Buddy Scrub arrived through my letter box, I was quite curious as it isn't a brand I have come across before and I practically dived straight in. 
Buddy Scrub - Your Friend With Benefits
The packaging is quite plain but totally practical as it is resealable and everything you need to know about it and what it is can be seen before your very eyes. You will also, like I did, end up chuckling at the description and just as you go to open the packaging, this:

"Carefully rip off my top then its time to get down and dirty"
"I'll start by getting you undressed and slowly exfoliate your skin with my sea salt and sugar"

The Buddy scrub is made of Raw Cacao Powder which is packed full of vitamin C and works to nourish and protect the skin. Raw Cacao is also said to help increase the blood flow to the skin, leave it feeling hydrated and it can help to reduce stretch marks. Alongside the Raw Cacao Powder is brown sugar and Sea Salt and they work to exfoliate and remove dry dead skin cells which leave your skin feeling amazingly clean and incredibly smooth to the touch. As there is Sea Salt, take care when you do use this on your skin (also suitable for the face if you so wish) because it can be quite abrasive if you apply too much pressure. Further ingredients include Coconut oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Orange essential Oil and Vitamin E and they all come together to nourish, moisturise and hydrate your skin.

If that wasn't a good enough description, then here is the cheeky one from Buddy Scrub which is on the back of the packet and the one I found myself giggling too:

I’m a body scrub so let’s start by getting you undressed and softly exfoliating your dry skin with my sea salt and brown sugar.
Then I’ll start to nourish your body with my raw cacao powder and coconut oil, which will do wonders for you.
I will further enrich your skin with my sweet almond oil and grape seed oil to keep you feeling soft and cleansed into the night.
I’ll reach all parts of your body and have you feeling amazing with essential vitamins and minerals.
All that I ask in return, is that you make use of my skills once or twice a week.
Buddy Scrub - Your Friend With Benefits

This scrub is designed to be used once or twice a week depending on much you feel your skin is in need of a good scrubbing. To use it, you need to ensure your skin is wet skin, so being in the shower is ideal, then you will need to rub approximately 1-2 handfuls all over your body and again, if you have areas which are in need of a little more concentration than others, you can change how much pressure you apply when using. I always massage the scrub onto and then off my skin using circular motions and I tend to start from my shoulders working down to my ankles, so anything that is gross and has been removed falls off. Once you have finished you simply wash it off and again if you so wish, you can use your flannel, sponge or Muslin cloth to ensure you haven't missed a bit. After using this scrub, not only does it leave your skin feeling just absolutely incredible, you'll find it hard to not want to lick yourself because it has this most amazing chocolaty orange scent to it - but obviously it isn't edible!

This scrub helps with dry skin, blemishes, eczema, psoriasis, stretch marks, cellulite, and scaring! It is also an all natural, cruelty free and vegan friendly all for just £15.

  40. This reminds me of Frank's, only theirs use coffee instead of cocoa. I've come to learn that body scrubs are really your friends! I love how my skin feels after exfoliating.
