4 Cruelty-Free Coffee Scrubs to Heal Your Skin

4 Cruelty-Free Coffee Scrubs to Heal Your Skin

Why are coffee scrubs so popular? Because of coffee’s divine benefits!

Benefits: rich in antioxidants, caffeine is a vasoconstrictor & diuretic (makes skin feel tighter, reduces redness & puffiness), stimulates blood flow & helps reduce the appearance of varicose veins, cellulite, stretch marks, scarring, eczema, psoriasis, age spots, & aids collagen production

I’ve listed 4 brands of scrubs with healing properties for any skin issues with which you may be suffering.

I’ve ALSO added a tip at the end of this post for creating a homemade coffee scrub!

Read about the benefits of their coffee scrub here.

Their coffee scrubs are CBD-infused!

This brand is sassy and I LOVE it! The first line of their Instagram bio says, “Skin look like sh*t? Try this.” 😂

ALSO I thought their scrubs would be more expensive, so I’m impressed and hype because of the affordability!

Simple blends of plant-based ingredients for soft, smooth skin. No fake sh*t. Tested on real people in real showers.

The scrubs are made with sustainably-sourced ‘past crop’ coffee beans that coffee importers would otherwise waste.

‘Past crop’ coffee beans exist when the new crop from that origin has arrived in the U.S. The past crop has been on the shelf a little too long and won’t make as great a cup of coffee as the new crop.

Their scrubs come in 5 different varieties: CBD cocao & vanilla, cocao & vanilla, CBD & coconut, coconut, and CBD & mint.

Their ingredients base is roasted coffee beans, brown sugar, Himalayan pink salt, coconut oil, & grapeseed oil.

For the CBD varieties their ingredients also include hemp seed oil and CBD oil (60mg full spectrum).

4. Scrubbed

  • Vegan 🌱

  • Cruelty-free 🐰

  • Made in Australia

  • The coffee is freshly roasted & ground in Australia as well

If you are in the UK, USA, NZ & Canada, send them a message here they will assist you in your order

Their products are some of the cutest I’ve ever seen! It looks like everything was made with love and attention to detail!

Their scrubs come in 5 different varieties: NOURISH (for hydration), FLAWLESS (for fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots), REPLENISH (shed dead skin cells, purify & remove toxins), RESTORE (for tan ready skin), & CLARITY (for controlling oily skin & acne).

See each individual scrub for their beautiful ingredients.

TIP: Make your own coffee scrub for FREE by using the grinds from your morning coffee! You can add ingredients you may already own such as sugar, Himalayan salt, essential oils and cooking oils like olive, coconut, avocado or sweet almond oil!

+ my holy grail for removing dead skin & revealing baby soft skin (see #3 Luv Scrub)

+ hydration for your body & face post-scrub

Have you tried a coffee scrub yet? My first ever coffee scrub was actually from Frank Body.
