Coffee Belongs in my Body and on My Body!!


The Coffee Scrub

So this is the coffee scrub I was dying to dry. Guess what?? It looks JUST LIKE COFFEE! But the best part is, it SMELLS just like COFFEE! I don’t know what I was expecting because it says, like right on the package, that it is THE COFFEE SCRUB. So lo and behold, I open it in the shower and I didn’t know whether to brew it or use as directed. I felt like a giant pot of Cafe Bustello! The smell was amazing! It mingled with the steam and the whole bathroom smelled heavenly. So the directions are to dampen your skin and use 2 small handfuls, and rub in all over your body (especially the problem areas, where your body feels like a Dorito). Leave it on for 5-10 minutes; for me it was closer to 5 because, come on, what am I going to do in the shower standing around for 10 minutes. As I rinsed it off, my skin felt sooo smooth! Better than the salt scrub I usually use. And if you’re wondering, no, I didn’t smell like a doppio espresso when I dried off. All it is is coffee and some essential oils. I think I can make it myself. I always have coffee on hand.

So anyway, now that I have totally wasted your time with this uncompensated product placement, just remember, Constant Reader, scrub early and scrub often!

    My mom was born and raised in the Bronx but didn’t have bipolar or a love affair with coffee like yours truly!!!!

      Where in The Bronx were you born? I was born in Einstein Hospital and raised off the Grand Concourse!

        Hi again – sorry for the delay – actually it was my Mom who was born there, and she’s still alive – she turns 82 next week. I’ll text her tonight & find out where she was born! :))) I remember her telling me a story about getting her head stuck in a metal railing at the Bronx Zoo & they had to get a firefighter to get her out!

        Take care – hope you’re doing well.

      Me too. Usually it’s with conditioner! I put the conditioner in my hair and then shave my legs or something. Then I rinse! But that is 2 minutes tops!
