I’m not even trying to toot my own horn, but I pride myself on having one of the softest skin. It’s part inherited (thanks Mom) and mostly because I am OCD about putting lotion on. Not exaggerating- I moisturize my legs, arms, and hands about 10 times a day. You know how some people cringe at the sound of nails on chalkboard? I get the same feeling about dry skin.
After coming home from sunny Mexico, I ended up with some over sun exposed, peeling skin. My arms and legs had a layer of dry skin just screaming at me like, “HEY EXFOLIATE & MOISTURIZE ME!”. I didn’t want to spend a bunch of dough on store-bought scrubs (and plus I want to use all natural ingredients). Of course I know about DIY scrubs – but ain’t nobody got time for that. Luckily, Pura Vida Body Scrub had sent me a pack of their organic coffee body scrub to try. I started using the product last week, first in a bath and then every other day in the shower for a week. Here’s the scoop:
organic coffee , 100% organic extra virgin coconut oil, sea salt, organic brown sugar
While the ingredients read more like a Starbucks drink, the caffeinated mixture sloughed away all my dead skin cells, making it glow-y and scrumptious. The caffeine in coffee grounds is a genius way to reduce cellulite. The caffeine absorbs into your skin and dehydrates the fluid in those pesky cellulite areas, so your skin is (temporarily) tighter and firmer. I love that after stepping out of the bath/shower, I can still feel the coconut oil on my body (without it being over whelming). You already know that coconut oil is like the 8th wonder of the world. We covered the benefits here. Plus, the smell of coffee is one of my favorite things ever.
I really LOVE and believe in this product. Love the waxed packaging to protect the product from getting wet and the resealable top. I think you guys are going to love this too!
