I am always on the lookout for different bath products. After becoming a mother, my desire for the ultimate bath experience has grown. I had not tried many body scrubs before, but I received the opportunity to try First
Botany's Arabica Coffee Scrub and figured "Why not?"
Opening the container, the smell is pleasant. You can immediately smell the coffee. My husband is somewhat of a coffee snob, so he attuned it to cheap gas station coffee. I did not care. It smelled like coffee and I was going to love rubbing it on!
Of course, scrubs are going to be rough on your skin - they're supposed to be. As I was scrubbing, there were a few seconds where I thought I drew blood, but that was me being a woose. After I got done, my skin felt smooth and soft and the cracked callouses on the heels of my feet were considerably smoother.
This product is good for cellulite, varicose veins and is great for restoring elasticity. I believe it after the way my skin feels.
The only thing I would change about this is the smell does not last very long. Normally, my skin takes on a scent akin to whatever I used to clean it, but there was no such smell. I asked Tony to sniff my arm and he said there was no coffee smell. I would have loved to walk around for a few hours smelling like coffee, but it was not to be.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
