Coffee, sugar and body scrubs - my 3 favorite things.
There is nothing better than java to wake you up - and that goes for your skin, too!
Self-tanning brand, Svelta, knows the key to an even tan without streaking, is exfoliation. So it's no surprise that in addition to their sunless tanning product, that they offer a heavenly scrub to make sure you look your best.
I'm pretty much obsessed with scrubs, and this one is no different. First off, it is a whopping 16oz. So it is pretty sizeable. The rose gold detail makes it look luxe. When you take off the cap... it is literally a close your eyes and take in the delicious fragrance kind of moment. No joke.
The raw sugar is noticeable in medium sized pieces. I took a spoon and stirred the coffee, sugar and oil mix as it had separated a bit from the oil (totally normal.)
Be prepared that this is a seriously messy scrub. Coffee will be everywhere and the bottom of your shower will be slippery from the oils, so be careful. But every scrub addict knows this is just par for the course with your obsession and you just push on through.
I've found that most sugar scrubs have finely ground sugar in them, but since this is raw sugar, it has the same level of abrasiveness as a salt scrub. Again, totally fine with me, and I think that's to the benefit of this scrub since it is meant to be used prior to a self-tanner. Meaning, you really want the dry skin to come off, especially at your elbows, knees and feet where the sunless tanner may end up looking darker if not exfoliated properly.
This scrub has a delectable cardamon fragrance, the moisturizing oil in this is olive oil, which I am a huge a fan of (it's in my hydrating body lotion after all.) It also contains Vitamin E and grapefruit extract (grapefruit has a brightening effect on the skin.)
Other things worthy of noting is that this luxe coffee sugar scrub is 100% natural, does not contain parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, triclosan, dyes or synthetic fragrance. It's also cruelty free.
Honestly, try it for yourself. I bet you'll become just as obsessed as I am!
