What’s brown, smelly and from Australia?
Nope, not me – Frank Body!
What is it?
Frank Body is a brand of coffee-based scrubs that claim to target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne, moisturise and tone your skin whilst hydrating and smoothing at the same time.
These are a LOT of claims for one small paper bag worth around $15.
How does it work?
The coffee and oils work together to soak into your skin and work “from the inside, out”.
These are the ingredients in the “original” mix:
What do you have to do?
You have to apply the scrub with wet skin, so I stepped in the shower for a couple of seconds. Then, I took a huge handful (the bag says 2 small handfuls but I was feeling lazy) and worked it into my skin in circular motions, focusing on areas that needed “improvement”. I suggest you do this in the shower because it gets REALLY messy. And it’s coffee. So be careful of staining.
Then comes the hard part. You have to wait for 5-10 minute with the scrub on. I thought this was going to be the hardest part as I am incredibly impatient but I just brought in a magazine and stood there for the 10 minutes.
I always see posts on instagram of people with the scrub on their face out on the beach or lazing around a pool or someplace nice. But me? I stayed in my bathroom, reading about Kim Kardashian and her Klan and fruits that make you poop better.
How does it feel?
I really cant describe how it felt on my skin, but I was worried that it was going to fall off onto the floor. Also, it didn’t help that I forgot to turn the heater on beforehand, so I was quite cold.
The scrub does leave a greasy feel to your skin and they say to was it off with a body wash. Also, a faint scent of coffee lingers so if you’re into coffee, then you’ll love it! I, on the other hand, do not like coffee nor do I fancy the smell – Yes, I realise this is very odd for a university student.
To be Frank, (haha im such a comedic genius) Frank Body is just plain awesome.
