Frank Body (Scrub)

We all want smooth skin all over our body, I’m pretty certain about that. How many of you have waxed or shaved your legs and just wanted to ask everyone and anyone to just feel how smooth your legs are simply because of how satisfying they feel? Exactly, you’re not alone, I’m with you 100%.

If you’re on Instagram, you more than likely have seen or read about the brand Frank. If not, now you have and you can also view there account by clicking here. Seeing all the images of men and women covered in this scrub intrigued me and made me want to learn more about this coffee scrub that so many are praising. After putting off making a purchase for so long, I finally gave in 6 months ago and have not had a moment of regret since.

Frank claims it is exactly what you are looking for. It is an Australian-based coffee skincare range that targets cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions to leave your skin feeling soft and supple. So, how accurate is this?

Fortunately for me, I don’t have any major issues with the skin on my body, other than it being dry. However, the skin on my face is a completely different situation. Saying that, I cannot comment on whether or not Frank’s coffee scrub improves your skin if you suffer from cellulite, psoriasis, or eczema. What I can tell you is how this scrub has helped stretch marks, dry skin on my body, and hyper-pigmentation on my face.

The texture of this scrub is very coffee-like (go figure) but extremely soft. Unlike many scrubs, there’s nothing harsh about this product at all. You gently massage it in to your skin and leave it on for 1-2 minutes and wash it off. You can also leave it on your skin once massaged for 5 minutes or more and allow the product to dry on your skin a little before you wash it off.

I have used this scrub on my entire body and face daily, and have seen a HUGE improvement on my face especially. The hyper-pigmentation marks have lightened and the overall health of my skin has never been better. I’ve had no issues with using this scrub on my face daily, it has not caused me to break out at all. In fact, since I started using this scrub, the unwanted guest visits me rarely. My skin hasn’t been feeling dry and itchy since I incorporated this in to my routine and the stretch marks I have are less visible.

Once you wash the product off, your skin is left incredibly smooth and really feels clean. As I do use this on my face, my skin is left so soft that my makeup application is much better.

I have tried all of the available options of this scrub and I personally enjoyed the original the most. The others were equally as good, it’s just a matter of preference for me. The smell is not nauseating nor does it linger on your skin. Of course you can smell coffee, so unless you really cannot stand the smell of coffee I do not see why the scent of any of the packets would bother you. It is to be noted that the smell of coffee is not sickeningly intense.

One packet of this scrub lasts me around 4 months and that is with daily use. Therefore for me personally, the price is more than reasonable and it is a product I have purchased again and will continue to do so.

As much as I do adore this product there are two setbacks which I believe would bother some. Firstly, the packaging. The scrub arrives in a brown paper foiled bag that is resealable, but it is something that you definitely cannot keep in your bathroom as you do not want to wet the bag. However, the solution I have for this is to take out some of the scrub in a plastic container and keep it in your bathroom. You can then store the rest of the scrub in a cool dry place until you need to re-fill your container. The second set back is that this product is messy. Now when I say messy, I truly do mean messy. The chances of this scrub getting all over your bathroom is highly likely, so before you finish up, you will need to give your bath/shower a rinse to ensure no product is remaining. Neither of these factors bother me as the product is just that good. Plus, you should always give your bath/shower a rinse before you leave anyway – especially if you share your home with others.

Overall, I think this is a product you all at least need to try once, especially if you’re after smooth skin with minimum effort. The price for this product in GBP is reasonable considering how much product you do receive and the results I have so far seen have made this a holy grail product for me.

Put this on your list of things to buy and comment down below once you have tried it to let me know how you found it for you. Or, if this is already a product you have tried, let me know your thoughts on it.

TOP TIP: Gently rub some of the scrub on your lips and rinse off. Say hello to the smoothest lips you’ve ever had. Save money on buying other scrubs and make another use of this product.

Until my next post.
