Day 11 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub

Ooh! This looks like an interesting product. I immediately wondered if the coffee grounds were recycled, but the packaging and website do not say. So I have posed the question directly to Frank Body on Twitter. I would imagine that if the product does have an ecological benefit, that they would be shouting about it, so I’m guessing the coffee is ground specifically for this product. The packaging does not appear to be recyclable either. Shame! With all that said, though, the product looks new and innovative and the ingredients and skin benefits seem great. This is a 20g sample size, but there looks to be enough for at least a couple of applications.

My blend of coffee, vitamin E, and antioxidant-rich oils keep your skin looking perky, even and soft. Enough introductions. Time to get naked.


  • ROBUSTA COFFEE GRINDS: There’s a reason my Original Coffee Scrub has so many 5 star reviews. My hero blend of coffee provides the ultimate exfoliation for babes who want results.

  • VITAMIN E: A bodyguard to protect your skin from free radicals, promoting healing and fading scars.
  • SEA SALT: Added exfoliation to tackle dry, flaky skin without irritation. Anti-bacterial to fight breakouts.


  • Skin Type: Babes, which is my way of saying all skin types
  • Smell: Orange Frappuccino
  • How often: Every 2-3 days
  • How much: 1-2 handfuls per use
  • Step 1: Get naked and get in the shower. You don’t need clothes for this.
  • Step 2: Once your skin is wet, cover your body in my Original Coffee Scrub. Scrub in circular motions for a few minutes, from top to toe.
  • Step 3: Focus on areas that want extra attention by scrubbing them for longer: scars, stretch marks, breakouts or cellulite
  • Step 4: Rinse and remember you’re a babe, no matter what.

First Impressions: I can’t give a first impression until I’ve tried it, but I am looking forward to trying it as I have stretch marks and cellulite, so I will be interested to see if it makes any difference. I am a natural sceptic, so I’m not expecting miracles! I will update this post, once I have something to add.


Success! You're on the list.
