A few years ago, a girlfriend of mine mentioned a coffee scrub she’d heard about that allegedly worked wonders for the skin – it claimed to reduce the appearance of cellulite, scars and other imperfections while also working to moisturize, exfoliate and give an all-over glow. The only downside to this product? It was sold out of Australia and kind of expensive to ship. My curiosity was piqued, but I didn’t make a point to find an alternative closer to home.
Since then, coffee scrubs have grown in popularity and are easier to track down. I had the chance to try one recently, and I was so thrilled to give it a shot and even happier it was from a Canadian company. Jealous Body Scrub is based in Vancouver and makes a Coffee + Coconut Scrub that promises to improve skin imperfections and smooth things out, much like the initial product I’d heard about years earlier.
