Coffee Scrubs - My Top 5

I am absolutely obsessed with coffee scrubs (thanks Pinterest) and have for the past few months been working my way through a few brands (11 in total) trying and testing them out. 
Coffee Scrubs - My Top 5
Coffee grounds are said to have a multitude of benefits for the skin when used as an exfoliator, Not only have I found coffee scrubs to be incredible at removing dead, dry and flaky skin, but it is true that they helps to improve the skin tone and also the texture of the skin. If from time to time you can feel slightly bump skin where it has dried out and is in need of a good scrub, a coffee scrub is among one of the best things I have found. Coffee Scrubs are said to also increase blood circulation as well as helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins and psoriasis and of course it does leaves your skin smelling just absolutely amazing!

Instead of including them all in one post, I have selected the ones I liked the most and all for different reasons and here they are:

Lush Cup O Coffee 
This has already featured on my blog (here) a little while ago but I do absolutely love it. Designed to be a face and body mask, if you love the smell of fresh coffee brewing in a morning, then this one is for you.

The scent is fresh, it wakes you up and it is a really good exfoliator, which isn't too abrasive on the skin. Alongside coffee, this scrub also uses Kaolin which helps to cleanser and exfoliate the skin, Coriander Seed Oil which not only warms and soothes tired achey muscles but also uplifts and refreshes where states of tension and fatigue exist plus it is naturally antibacterial and there is also Vanilla Absolute which is fresh and uplifting scent as well as having an antibacterial effect on the skin, it is also naturally rich in vitamins which help your skin to feel more balanced and healthy.

This Lush Cup O' Coffee Face and Body Mask costs £6.75/150g and £13.25/325g and can be found online and in stores.

Clean Beauty Co. - Scrub Life.
If ever there was a product to make you get excited when opening the packaging, this one gets full marks. It smells just incredible and promises to scrub, buff and smooth from head to toe.

What I love about this scrub is that it comes with a little spoon to extract some of the scrub from its tub. 100% natural, this scrub contains grapefruit which is an anti-oxidant and will get to work on any pesky cellulite, coconut oil to smooth, moisturise and hydrate your skin, Jojoba Oil which is also an antioxidant and as well as being great at moisturising the skin, it also gently unclogs the pores and lifts grime and imbedded impurities. I love how this feels on my skin and I love how the scent lingers, it is a strong coffee scent and it does leave my skin soft, smooth and just feeling incredible. 

This coffee scrub is £20 for 200ml.

Bean Body Coffee Scrub
This scrub came to me via a Libbie Club Box and it is an Organic Coffee Scrub which uses Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil.

The inclusion of Demerara Sugar and Himalayan Salt are what makes this scrub stand out in the crowd for me. Designed to exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin as well as whiteheads, blackhead, it also helps with breakouts and other skin blemishes. Slightly coarser in texture than the rest of the scrubs within this post but I love that with a little bit more pressure, it removes that tough dead and dry skin.  What I love about Bean Body is that it is the most abrasive of the bunch and with just that little bit of extra pressure, you can do so much more.

This coffee scrub ranges in prices from around £11 up to £15 depending upon where you shop.

Sukin - Energising Body Scrub with Coffee and Coconut

Sukin is a brand I am just getting to know, so when I realised they did a coffee scrub, I was delighted to receive it and it comes in a tube!

This scrub is again totally different to every other scrub within this review and again this is due to its texture. Rather than looking like spent coffee beans, Sukin has a more cream feel to it, though the coffee is most definitely present alongside coconut and walnut shell which you can feel. The use of both Walnut and Coconut Shell make for an incredible exfoliating duo which come together to gently buff away dull, dead skincells, Add to that there is the inclusion of Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil and Jojoba which are nourishing, moisturising and hydrating leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth and finally there is antioxidant Vitamin E and Rose Hip which protects skin and reignites that natural glow.  For me, this scrub deserves its inclusion within my post and if you have never tried a coffee scrub and are not sure whether or not you would like it, this is the beginners guide to coffee scrubs option, it is kind and gentle and the coffee scent isn't as strong as it is within others.

This coffee scrub costs £12.99 for a 200ml tube.

Scrub Love - Mint Temptation

If you want a scrub to quite literally drag you out of that slumber and kick you awake, let me introduce Scrub Love. Mint Temptation makes me want to drink it never mind use it

Coffee Scrubs - My Top 5

Alongside coffee this scrub gives you that complete minty experience with the inclusion of Peppermint Oil which is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and pore cleansing, Tea Tree Oil which has antiseptic properties make it great for healing and softening, plus it helps soothe tired muscles. Dead Sea Salt which is full of minerals, magnesium and potassium, it’s the best salt to scrub and rub on your skin to stimulate and relax deep into the tissue, Argan Oil which is high in fatty acids and vitamin E, it’s easily absorbed into your skin to moisturize and combat dark spots and finally Aloe Vera which is an anti-septic with cooling and healing properties. It’s also packed with vitamins A, B, C & E and Beta Carotene which give it anti-ageing properties as it nourishes your skin.  For me this scrub is all about the scent and how it makes you feel when you use it, the feel good factor is most definitely present with this scrub.

This coffee scrub costs just £12.95 and it is a 200ml bag and you have three to choose from with Mint, Coconut and Original. 

If you have never ever tried a Coffee Scrub, then these are my top 5 of all of the ones I have tried. Each and every one of the five are totally different from one another whilst they all have one thing in common - coffee.  Whether you like your scrub to be potent, mild, abrasive or gentle to the skin there is more than a few choices with this 5.
