When Vancouver-based body scrub brand Jealous Body got in touch to see if I’d like to test out its first product to launch – a natural Coffee + Coconut Body Scrub I replied instantly. After months of hiding my body away through the winter my skin was in need of a refresh and wake-up call and this was the perfect product for the job.
So what did I test? I was sent a pack of Jealous Body Scrub
What is it? It’s an all over body scrub (you can slap it on your face too). The scrub contains premium robusta coffee, organic cold pressed coconut oil, raw brown sugar, sea salt, vitamin E and minerals. There are no ingredients you will struggle to pronounce which is always a good sign, oh and it smells delicious – if you like the smell of coffee that is.
Why should you use it? What body exfoliator are you currently using? Does it work as it should? If it doesn’t and you are really looking to give your skin and treat then order some Jealous Body NOW. I have to be honest I am sceptical when I read that a product will reduce the appearance of cellulite but I have to say the appearance of my skin does appear to have improved. It doesn’t banish cellulite (it doesn’t promise to) but with summer days approaching this stuff will give you added confidence about baring your skin in public. Jealous Body is also good for reducing the appearance of eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis and acne.
How does it work? So the coffee beans aren’t just there to make it smell good, they work away to exfoliate and rejuvenate, the brown sugar and sea salt hydrates and moisturises your skin and the vitamin E and minerals work their magic to protect and repair your skin. It’s super easy to use too. Use 2-3 scoops for your whole body and rub into wet skin in circular motions. Leave it there to do it’s thing for 5-10 minutes. Now this is why it works, because you leave it there to soak in and do it’s job. I have to admit I used to exfoliate in a flash, rub it on, wait a minute or so and get rid. Jealous Body forces you to have some chill time in the shower, take 10 minutes out whilst it’s on your body. Call your friend for a catch up, do some squats even, go through your to do list in your head. The important thing is you leave it there to work. Then after your chill time and after inhaling the smell of coffee you just rinse it off.
What’s the result? Seriously smooth, bright and rejuvenated skin. Your bathroom will smell pretty good too.
Where can I buy it? Jealous Body is available online at jealousbody.com and they ship all over the world so there is no excuse not to have smooth and luscious skin.
Cost? $17.95 or around £9.40 if you live in the UK. Shipping is free to Canada and the US and $3.95 to everywhere else.
I think it’s pretty obvious that I love this stuff. As you know I love natural products and this certainly ticks that box. It smells great, it’s different and even the packaging is cool.
Arm yourself with a pack of this and you will not be disappointed. The Jealous Body website is packed full of faqs and you can order directly from the website too.
Happy scrubbing people.
