Frank Body | The Original Coffee Scrub

 Frank Body is one of the first brands I came across when my love of coffee scrubs started to grow. A company which started back in 2013 has grown considerably and with a range of products now boasting everything for the body, face and

Coconut coffee scrub which smells insanely good offers to Turn your shower into a nudie beach with with this nut-free, natural and smells just like a beach holiday scrub which admittedly comes minus the sand in your pants. Packed in a brown bag, this scrub is insane for removing dead and dry skin. The instructions ask that you use two handfuls, but I have only ever used one per session. Now it is messy but if you prepare beforehand it is much easier.

As it is designed to scrub the skin, I find it works better if the skin is wet before application, so whether you want to hop in and out of the shower, turn your water on or off or not is entirely down to you. I grab my handful of scrub and place it into an old Lush tub and then add a few drops of water to make it into a paste. Then once in the shower, depending on how my skin is, I either apply the scrub to the parts which need it the most, or I cover my entire body with said scrub. 

As a coffee scrub this naturally smells like freshly brewed coffee with a hint of coconut plus there is some grape seed oil and Vitamin E. Priced at £13.95 for a 200g bag, this scrub is worth every last penny.

If a coffee scrub isn't exciting enough then I have been using three other products from the Frank Body range and they are a lip scrub, a body lotion and a creamy face scrub - I am literally almost like a walking talking cup of your finest Americano!

The Creamy face scrub is incredible and it takes the amazing body scrub and gives it a slight twist to create a face scrub. With this scrub you take a small blob and apply it to your face, again, I prefer a slightly damp face so the scrub has something to stick too. Then as you apply it, ensure that you massage in circular motions to help aid the removal of dirt, grime, dead and dry skin.

However, before washing it off, the advice is to leave it on your skin for three further minutes and then rinse. The scrub is quite gritty and it uses a combination of amazing ingredients such as White clay which has a long history of detoxifying and removing dead skin cells. Rosehip Oil which brightens dull skin and smoothes over your battle scars. There is also coconut, grapeseed and sweet almond oils which moisturise and hydrate the skin plus Vitamins A, E and D hydrate your skin without blocking pores.  This scrub is priced at £15.95.

The Body Cream promises you'll be the icing on the cake and given how lovely, thick and luxurious the cream is, it is hard to not want to smother yourself in it.

A delicious blend of Shea and Cocoa Butters which are intensely hydrating alongside coffee seed extract which helps to firm and tone, Pomegranate which feeds your skin to make it stronger & healthier, Green Tea which helps flush out toxins from the skin, helps heal blemishes and soothes the complexion.  If you have ever been a fan of Palmers Cocoa Butter from a tub, then this is a slightly smoother version and it leaves your skin feeling just absolutely incredible.  This cream is priced at £17.95.

Finally the lip duo which consists of a scrub and a balm are design to tackle dry, flaky lips and leave behind smooth soft ones in it place.

Using a combination of Coffee, coconut, macadamia and grapeseed oils alongside ethically sourced beeswax and raw sugar you get two products which work so incredibly well together and not only does the scrub effectively remove any dry skin, it doesn't scratch and is not overly abrasive.  I tend to use my scrub twice a week to ensure that my lips are not dry, chapped or have any dead skin hanging around and I am a lip balm addict in any case, so it is never without question that I use a lot of it.  This little duo is priced at £12.95.

I have found Frank Body products to be an absolute delight to use and if you love the scent of coffee then this is a match made in heaven for you.  You can find all of these products online via sites such as ASOS.
