Say “hello” to Jealous Body Scrub and “goodbye!” to rough skin, cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis and acne. That’s what this body scrub promises to do. Now those are some big promises, and with big promises come big expectations. My past experiences with body scrubs have left me a little, how should I say this… emotionally scarred. I feel like they were never really honest with me and left me (or rather my skin) feeling uncomfortable and disappointed. So when this body scrub offered to soften me up, I first thought “what better way to get my skin ready for bikini season”, then “this one better not be like all the others.”
I waited until the weekend to bring my new friend in the shower with me, I wanted to make sure I had all the time in the world to get to know him. I ripped open the simple brown package and took a whiff, Mmmmm, the delicious smell of coffee filled the shower. Before I get into all the dirty details, I want to first mention what this product is all about.
About Jealous Body Scrub ~ the all natural scrub, made with lots of love in Vancouver, BC, contains a mix of ground coffee (to exfoliate and stimulate blood circulation), cold-pressed coconut oil (for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and hydrating properties), sea salt (to balance acid levels in your body and absorb toxins from your skin), raw brown sugar (to exfoliate and help balance oils on your skin), as well as vitamin E and mineral oils. This wonderful smelling blend is rough enough to improve skin imperfections, but at the same time, hydrating to leave your skin moisturized after every use.
About the formula ~ the beautiful thing about Jealous Body Scrub (besides the way it makes your skin feel after you use it), is that the formula uses high quality, natural ingredients that don’t need to be masked by artificial fragrances or chemicals.
And now, the fun part…
How to use it ~ take it in the shower with you. Wet your skin, then turn off the shower. Grab a handful of the scrub and rub all over your body in a circular motion. Then, let it work its magic for 5-10 minutes before you rinse off. Although you’ll notice results after the first use, it’s better to get down and dirty with this body scrub 3-4 times a week for about one month for best results.
The result ~ after just one use, I noticed my skin was super soft and smooth. My skin tends to be quite dry when I step out of the shower, but not with this scrub. Instead, my skin was glowing and hydrated. I can’t wait to see the longer term results.
The final word ~ I definitely recommend this product. Not only does it smell wonderful (especially when you use it in the morning), but it leaves your skin feeling so nice. Word to the wise though, just make sure you give yourself a little extra time to clean up your shower afterwards, since things are sure to get messy.
Jealous Body Coconut + Coffee Scrub is available for $17.95 online and ships anywhere in Canada and the US.
UPDATE 05/15/2015: After 4 weeks of using the Jealous Body Coconut + Coffee Scrub, I wanted to give you guys a little update on my results. I used the body scrub every other day (or so) for 4 weeks, which is how long one package lasted me. Each and every time I used this scrub, my skin was so soft and silky that I didn’t even need to apply a body lotion. My skin also looked more even and glowing as time went on. As for the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, while I didn’t see any dramatic results, I did see that both were less noticeable. Of course, the exfoliating action performed regularly on my skin definitely did wonders, increasing circulation and giving my skin a beautiful glow that people noticed.
