Coffee scrubs are all over the place right now, they have been endorsed by so many celebs and bloggers and they have a pretty high reputation to keep up. When Scrub Love contacted me, asking if I'd like to try their coffee scrub I jumped on the chance, to see what all the hype is about. I recieved Scrub Love Mint Temptations* and it didn't disappoint.

Firstly I love the packaging, it is really cute and girly, and looks amazing in your bathroom. I love the bag design that it has, it is different from all the other products I own! Onto the product itself, it is  "an organic, fairtrade, Rainforest-Alliance Approved, ethically sourced coffee-scrub skincare company proudly made in the UK"  and to make it even better "all ScrubLove products are free from artificial colours, fragrances, parabens and preservatives + we love animals and would never dream of testing on them." I can't really find a fault with the product as a whole. I absolutely love that it doesn't test on animals and that it is ethically sourced. I really believe every company should be going down these paths sooner rather than later, as that is definitely where the market is heading. 
The scrub has an amazing scent, it is very strong coffee however the bitterness of the coffee is cut by the sweet mint. I actually felt the coolness of the mint for a few hours after I had used the scrub, which was definitely strange but felt nice! You can tell there are some oils in there as your skin is left feeling super soft and moisturised.

I made the mistake of using way too much! A little bit definitely goes a long way and you don't need a whopping great handful, like I took. I can see this lasting ages, however I can't wait to try out the other variations. As well as Mint Temptations they have Original Lovin' and Coconut Affair, which both sound pretty good. This product has opened my eyes to the world of coffee scrubs, and I can confirm they are definitely worth the hype.

If you fancy purchasing a Scrub Love scrub you can find them here for £11.95.

Let me know if you've ever used a coffee scrub and what you think of them.
