They’re at it again! Jealous Body Scrub has been busy finding new ways to get you in the shower. First, it was all about the coconut + coffee body scrub and oh man, it made my skin so soft and happy (you can read all about it here). Now, they’ve gone ahead and created four new formulas to get your skin impressively soft. The amazing people at Jealous Body were kind enough to send me the new Almond + Coffee Scrub to try out and (dare I say), I think I may like it even more than the Coconut + Coffee Scrub.
The Coconut + Coffee scrub is amazing for those with normal to sensitive skin, the Almond +Coffee scrub is for those of us who have normal to dry skin. Like the Coconut + Coffee scrub, it’s made with natural ingredients, including robusta coffee grounds, but this formula is mixed with a whole lots of other natural goodness for your skin.
Coffee grounds – helps to stimulate blood flow, which is great for reducing the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis and acne.
Brown sugar & sea salt – exfoliates and rejuvenates your skin.
Cold pressed 100% natural sweet almond oil – hydrates dry skin and improves your complexion.
Vitamins A, D & E + minerals – helps to protect and repair your skin.
In the shower
Now that you know what Jealous Body Scrub is all about, it’s time to get a little dirty! Hop in the shower, wash your hair, shave your legs, then turn off the water. Grab a handful of the yummy scented scrub and apply in a circular motions on your legs and work your way up to your stomach, arms and chest. You’ll need about 2 to 3 scoops to really get dirty. Let the scrub work its magic for about 5-10 minutes, then rinse it all off.
I fell in love with this body scrub the first time around, but I love this formula even more. First of all, I really love the fact that it doesn’t contain any chemically yuckkies in it, is all natural and is not tested on animals. I also love supporting a Canadian company, eh?! The scent of the Almond + Coffee is just as revitalizing as the Coconut + Coffee, but without being as overpowering. Truth be told, if you like the aroma of coffee, you’ll love this. After stepping out of the shower, applying a lotion or moisturizer is a must for me. But from the moment I grabbed my towel and dried off, I could feel the softness on my skin from the almond oil. So I decided to forgo the lotion all together and my skin felt silky soft and hydrated all day (even rough patches like knees, elbows and heels). Needless to say that Jealous Body and I are going to be doing the dirty deed on a regular basis from now on.
