If you love body scrubs, you’ve probably dabbled with coffee-based scrubs. Not only do they smell addictive, but slathered on the skin, it improves skin texture and reduces cellulite. We’re sampling our way through Life’s Butter coffee scrubs and recently reviewed their cacao-enriched formula. Now, we’re trying Life’s Butter Coffee Scrub + Coconut.
What is Life’s Butter?
Life’s Butter is a beauty company with a purpose. If you haven’t heard of them, we recommend trying their exfoliator brush and anti-cellulite treatment cream. All of their skincare products target common problematic areas on the body, such as cellulite. However, they do it with a body-positive message, encouraging women to love their skin, for all its dimples, stretch marks, and blemishes. Additionally, all of their products are made with natural ingredients and are completely free of parabens and sulfate.
Coffee Scrub with Coconut
Formulated with skin-soothing ingredients, the coconut coffee scrub is the third in a line of Life’s Butter’s three scrubs (they also have original and cacao). Right away, you’ll notice the deep brown granules (which can get messy at times), roughly ground to achieve deliciously smooth skin.
How to Use: According to package instructions, use Life’s Butter Coffee Scrub + Coconut in the shower on wet skin. Scoop a little onto your fingertips and apply to problem areas in gentle, circular motions. Rinse off and pat dry.
It’s deliciously fragrant with the heavy aroma of coffee and light traces of coconut. Its chunky granules provide a thorough exfoliation, providing all the benefits of a good exfoliating product:
- Improves skin texture (sloughs away dead skin cells to reveal the smooth skin underneath)
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite (shrinks the fat cells closest to the skin’s surface)
- Reduces inflammation (can even soothe redness and itchiness caused by eczema)
- Improves blood circulation
People recommend using scrubs as the last step in their shower routine. However, I used Life’s Butter Coffee + Coconut as my first step – this allows other skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin.
I immediately loved the thickness of the coffee granules – it was rough but not painful. It was a satisfying deep scrub. The coffee is enriched with nourishing oils, so after rinsing away the granules, the oils stay behind. Don’t wash them away! The oils are organic and typically expensive, so let them replenish and rejuvenate your skin. Simply pat your skin dry with a towel.
The entire process, from start to finish, was an enjoyable experience. Over time, coffee scrubs are can:
- stimulate collagen production and cell turnover
- improve skin texture
- reduce the appearance of cellulite
This is made more possible with the right ingredients, which this product has in plentiful.
