Bath Junkie – Body Buzz Coffee Scrub

The weather is changing and so is your skin. Preparing your skin for the upcoming harsh cold weather that will be shortly following the fall chill air is something that we all must do. So where do we start? With some amazing body scrub that smells fantastic and delicious all in one.

The scrub itself is mineral salt base that exfoliates deep ridding your beautiful skin of dead, dry cells. Now add in a little ground up coffee and this where the “magic” starts. When ground coffee is applied topically, the antioxidant properties in a caffeine have shown to help tighten skin, reduce wrinkles, reduce cellulite (this is not a joke) and help fight off damage caused by free radicals.Why do we love this this stuff? It’s magic. Well, we like to think that it has magic like powers.

Three times a week and your skin will be the glowing.

Another amazing perk of the Body Buzz Scrub? The blends you can put together are amazing because you get that deep coffee smell you love and mix it together with scents that will completely create your already favorite coffee drinks.

It’s a complete win/win in our book. Now run or walk over to Bath Junkie to get your own 32 oz!
