In recent years, coffee body scrubs have become one of the most hyped up products around, and for good reason.
Coffee scrubs are incredibly effective in exfoliating and boosting radiance, making your skin feel as smooth as a baby’s bottom as you step out of the shower.
However, the one major drawback is the mess they make in your shower, with tiny coffee grounds sometimes lingering for days.
If you’re looking for an alternative, we’ve compiled a list of some of the very best body scrubs around that will leave limbs smooth and soft without creating a mess in your shower.
Drunk Elephant Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Scrub
Love a drunk elephant pick for your skin care routine? Honestly, same. You can look forward to the same high-level results as the brand’s cult serums and skin treatments with this nourishing almond milk blended sugar scrub. The addition of coffee arabica seed oil and extract helps protect against free radicals and aids in exfoliation, while omega-rich virgin marula, vitamin-rich jojoba and coconut oil rich in fatty acids deeply moisturises and rejuvenates skin.
