I freely admit that I am a coffee addict. Are you one too?
While Gail may be brave enough to DIY it when it comes to her coffee scrubs, I’m more of a do it for me kind of girl. So when isola Body Scrubs contacted me about their Coffee & Sugar Scrubs, I was all in.
isola Body Scrubs were created in Montego Bay, used in 5-star hotels in Jamaica and have recently entered into the US. Their ingredients are amazing and simple–with Blue Mountain Coffee as the main ingredient, along with cane sugar, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil. Despite all of the oils, the scrub itself is not a greasy mix.
What I found interesting (and appealing) about this coffee scrub, is that although it didn’t feel oily in my hands, the scrub remained on my skin as I rubbed it over my body. With the countless scrubs I’ve used, I’ve noticed that as I rub them on my skin, the product simply falls off making me have to scoop out more and waste a lot of product. It was kind of funny to look at myself covered in coffee grounds, but I liked that I didn’t have to use a lot of product at all to literally cover myself from neck to toe.
Once I rinsed off the coffee and sugar, I noticed that my skin was lightly covered in oil. I honestly was surprised since I didn’t feel it at all when applying the scrub. The essential oils in the scrub locked the moisture into my skin and also kept it hydrated. There was no need for me to apply lotion post-shower.
I used the Vanilla Latte Coffee & Sugar Scrub, which smells out of this world! My entire bathroom smelled like a coffee house and I was in heaven. Once the scrub is rinsed off, the scent on your skin is only subtle…which is why isola should make a matching lotion (who wouldn’t love to smell this good?)
They also make a Lemongrass Island Blend, which smells like a mixture of citrus and a bold coffee. Definitely an refreshing, eye opening scent. The scrubs come in 12 and 16oz. tubs and can be purchased at isolabody.com. Put these scrubs on your must-have list!
