Scrub Love | Mint Temptation*

Hello lovelies,
Last week scrub love contacted me asking if I would like to try one of the coffee scrubs they make. Now this is the first time a brand has contacted me, I was a little hesitant but they are such an amazing company and after reading about them I just couldn't miss this opportunity. They very kindly sent me the mint temptation coffee scrub, that's what I'm going to be talking to you about today. 


Firstly I wasn't expecting a full size product but they kindly sent me one, now I've used scrubs before and they've been a little hit and miss with me. I normally use the coffee face mask from lush, this one is so much better compared to that. Now if I didn't like a product we all know I'd just say, this however was a pleasant surprise. 

I got rather excited when I saw this amongst the parcels on my bed, the envelope it came it was just super pretty and the packaging is just so cute. It's a zip lock pouch and I just love how cute it is. On the back are the ingredients and instructions on how to use it. What I love about this is that its not just boring like other brands, this one has adorable labels and it makes it so much easier to read whats actually in the product. 



Onto the actual product. The mint temptation scrub contains the following ingredients, now I'm going to be cheeky and copy these from the website. I just feel they can explain the benefits better than I could.

Coffee 
Ground coffee is nature's finest exfoliator. It’ll buff away dead skins cells without damaging the delicate new skin underneath. A high caffeine content in our fresh grinds stimulates circulation, to promote healing in problem areas.
Peppermint Oil |
Naturally anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and pore cleansing leads you to a clearer complexion and minty freshness

Tea Tree Oil |
You didn’t know your skin needed this, but we did. It’s antiseptic properties make it great for healing and softening, plus it helps soothe tired muscles.

Dead Sea Salt |
Full of minerals, magnesium and potassium, it’s the best salt to scrub and rub on your skin to stimulate and relax deep into the tissue.

Argan Oil |
The reputation precedes this not-so-secret celebrity favourite. High in fatty acids and vitamin E, it’s easily absorbed into your skin to moisturize and combat dark spots - leaving your soft and glowing!

Aloe Vera |
Famous world round for it’s anti-septic cooling and healing properties. It’s also packed with vitamins A, B, C & E and Beta Carotene which give it anti-aging properties as it nourishes your skin.



Now I wanted to make sure I had the most relaxing bath to enjoy this with. I lit my candle, ran myself a lovely bubble bath and popped some music on. Ella Henderson was my choice tonight. I used the scrub on my arms, legs and more importantly my face. It suggests to leave it on for 5 minutes or longer. I had mine on my face for about 15 minutes. Now with me, when I use peppermint products it stings my face and then I just take it off. This one stung a little bit only because it was just super refreshing on my skin. I powered through and after a minute it just felt so good. The stinging went and I was left smelling like mint choc chip ice cream while it was working its magic. 

Now normally my face feels a little rough and not very healthy. After gently rinsing this off my skin felt super smooth and just felt so much healthier. Its also left my face looking like it has a little more glow to it. 



Overall I just loved this scrub. I've already got my eye on the coconut affair scrub they do. The minute payday arrived I think I'll have to buy and try it. They also do just a regular coffee scrub so if you are interested in any of the products head over to scrublove.com and if you want to find out more information about the company then just click here
