*Grounded Coffee Scrub: Review

For the longest time I've tried to find the right body scrub for me. I like to be able to feel it exfoliating my skin, but at the same time I don't like it to be too harsh that it hurts, I wanted a happy medium.

One thing I noticed about all of the available scrubs that were on the market, was that they contained what I like to call a 'false oil', which always made your skin feel smooth after, but that didn't last once you dried yourself off with a towel and removed the oil.

That's where this new scrub comes into play. The ingredients are mainly coffee, salt and sugar, which as they state on the website help to make the scrub rougher than your average. They also contain essential oils such as vitamin E oil and Sweet Almond Oil.

How to use:
I like to take half a handful of this scrub per body part, and let me tell you, a little bit goes a long way.

I then take this scrub and rub it in circular motions on my skin, and I do this for around 5 minutes. Grounded do recommend that you leave this for 10 minutes before rinsing, however, my patience doesn't allow me to wait this long.

I then rinse this off in the shower - I would definitely recommend using this in the shower over using this in the bath.

This scrub can also be used on the face, however, I haven't done this so can't give my review of that.

The scent that I have is a gorgeous Chocolate Orange scent, however, as the scrubs main ingredient is coffee, it's a mixture of the two.

If anyone knows me, they know I LOVE the smell of coffee (although not drinking it). The fact that I have chocolate orange and coffee scents mixed together makes my shower a heaven for my nose. However, if you aren't a chocolate orange lover, you can also get this scrub in coconut and coffee or grapefruit and coffee.

The packaging comes in an all natural looking brown 'paper' bag that you have to rip open, once ripped open it has a seal across the top.

They do suggest that you keep this seal tightly shut, and don't allow water into it. This is pretty difficult, and is my only complaint about the product. However, the way that I have overcome this is using an old screw top plastic packaging that I have. That way I can dispense the product into the container, and then take that into the bathroom without worrying about getting water in the bag.

The result of using this scrub? Soft smooth skin, that only gets better after each use!

Helpful tip: body scrubs help pro-long your tan if you self tan, and they can also help combat cellulite!!

Overall, I am obsessed with this scrub, and I definitely want to continue to purchase this. Not only is the product great, but I'm really impressed with the brand, especially as they don't test on animals.

This scrub is £15 per bag, which initially seems quite expensive, however, it can last up to 3 months so I think it is value for money.

Now I'm intrigued to try the lip balms and the hair mask that Grounded sell.

What's your favourite body scrub? Have you tried Grounded?
