Review: Frank Body Scrub


Good evening everybod!

Hope you all had a lovely day sunning yourselves in the beautiful weather :) 

I spent the afternoon pottering around the shops looking for the last few holiday bits I needed to pick up before my trip to Florida - less than 2 weeks to go whoop! P.s. holiday shopping wasn't as exciting as it sounds, I ended up coughing up £15 on flight socks!! I repeat £15 on SOCKS... I know they are necessary for long haul flights but geewizz are they expensive! :/ 

Anyhoo enough about my sockies; this evening I fancied chatting to you beautes about a body scrub I've been LOVING - Frank Body coffee scrub. 

No matter the season I always think it important to keep my skin exfoliated and hydrated because lets face it no one likes scaly skin now do they? No sir! So to combat the scaleys I've been using the Frank Body Scrub for the past couple of weeks and I have to say it's one of the best products I've tried in a longgg time!

Now you are probably wondering what's so good about it then? So I've put together a little product break down; starting with the pro's...

Hydrate & Exfoliate? -
 I use the scrub about 1-2 times a week and the formula leaves my skin super soft and moisturised until the next application. In fact so moisturised that that my body butters have become somewhat redundant as of recent (buh-bye butterz) The texture is quite gritty so it does feel quite tough on the skin but certainly not painful and scratchy like those horrible exfoliating gloves OUCHY!

Ingredients - 
The ingredients are actually one of my favourite parts of the scrub as they are all completely natural and vegan friendly <3 It's made up of roasted ground robusta coffee blend, cold pressed almond oil, brown sugar and sea salt. All of which say that they help scrub away flakey skin, target imperfections, soothe and moisturise and finally cleanse and clarify :) 

Packaging -
Adorbs! The brown paper packaging with the pink accents is just too cute <3


Now for the not so greats...

Scent - 
I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of the smell... It kind of reminds me of when I used to work in a coffee shop when I was 15 and would go home smelling of stale coffee :/ Scents are obviously personal preference and to be honest after I use the scrub I whack on a load of body wash anyway so I don't really smell it when I hop out of the shower :)

Messy?-
Unfortunately it's quite a messy one as it's a dry scrub, not a solid/ liquidy type, so it does have a habit of flying all over the shower making you look like you've just got home from swimming in a muddy puddle... The least messy method I've found is to rinse yourself with warm water, turn the shower off and then put a small amount of the scrub in your hand and scrubba-dub-dub all over. I then wait about 5-10 minutes or until I'm freezing and then rinse myself and my messy shower tiles off.

Claims-
Now it does claim to combat stretch marks - something of which I'm lucky to say I don't actually have (so far ) so I can't tell you whether or not it actually does that. It also says that it helps reduce the appearance of cellulite unfortunately this is something I do have (damn it) in all honesty I haven't really noticed all that much of an improvement but this could be because I haven't been using it for all that long and also because I'm partial to crisps and chocolate cake... I'll be sure to report back to you beautes if I do notice anything though :)


All in all I absolutely love the scrub and I will deffo be on the look out to try more from the Frank Body range :)

Have you tried Frank Body? If so what are your thoughts?
