Coffee Coconut Scrub
At Freya’s Nourishment we prefer not to put sugar into our bodies but we love to use raw organic sugar on the outside as it is a fantastic exfoliant!
Natural beauty at its best! This deliciously scented scrub leaves your skin beautifully moisturised and glowing. Scrubs help to stimulate blood circulation and increase the blood flow to the skin’s surface. Using a body scrub helps to gently remove dead skin, exposing fresh new healthy skin. Our Coffee Coconut Scrub is wonderful head to toe - yes it is even gentle enough to use on your face! All of the ingredients used in this Coffee Coconut Scrub are certified organic, except the vanilla. Use all over to maintain healthy, smooth skin - make sure to try this scrub out before shaving your legs!
With the raw sugar, the coffee grounds in our Coffee Coconut Scrub is a wonderful exfoliant. Abrasive without being harsh on your skin, the caffeine in our Scrub helps to plump the cells thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite. Caffeine is said to enhance your body's ability to metabolise fat which also helps with the appearance of cellulite. The ground coffee increases blood flow which helps give your skin a more even tone and texture. We use fresh ground organic coffee in this delicious scrub.
Coconut oil is high in antioxidants which helps prevent premature aging, keeping the tissues strong and supportive. It is naturally antibacterial and anti fungal and the saturated fats in coconut oil help retain the moisture content of your skin and contain properties that prevent infections getting into open wounds. Coconut oil nourishes your skin with its natural content of vitamin E.
Containing glycolic acid - one of the most common AHAs which is vital to improve the appearance of the skin - raw sugar works as an exfoliant on the skin's surface, helping to maintain the condition of the skin and protect the skin against harmful toxins. Raw sugar is more gentle on the skin than salt, with its natural humectant properties which help reduce the loss of moisture in the skin.
Cinnamon has been used for many years in traditional medicine, with one of its most important roles being to help maintain healthy skin. Cinnamon is a natural antiseptic helping reduce the bacteria on your skin and helping to diminish spots. It also is said to help plump the skin, smoothing out fine lines.
Vanilla is an anti inflammatory, antibacterial and anti oxidant! It helps reduce infections....plus it smells so delicious!
The 150g stand up waterproof pouch is perfect for use in the shower. Sprinkle the scrub into your wet hands and massage into your skin. Use the scrub before shaving for a smoother shave.

We fell in love with this product from the moment we first got our hands on it! Two of our favourite smells in the entire universe have to be coconut and coffee, making this natural scrub from Freya’s Nourishment smell divine. What’s more, it left our skin feeling beautifully moisturized and glowing. We recommend giving this to your mum with a little IOU of a home spa treatment. Grab your bath robes, a good romantic comedy, some bubbly and this scrub, and you’re in for a relaxing Mother’s Day evening!
The Coffee Coconut Scrub is designed to stimulate blood circulation while acting as an exfoliant, clearing away dead skin. It acts a great exfoliant, easy to use and effective. The Coffee Coconut Scrub has an appealing smell and I like the addition of Coconut to the coffee scrub to provide extra moisturising properties as well as leaving your skin with a pleasant smell.
According to Freya’s Nourishment, the caffeine within the scrub helps to plump the cells, reducing the appearance of cellulite. While I do have cellulite, I am not keen to take before and after photos to determine how well it works, however caffeine has great properties and thus I believe that it could help reduce the appearance of my cellulite over prolonged use. In addition to this, there is Cinnamon verum contained within the scrub. Cinnamon is a natural antiseptic, so this helps the scrub reduce bacteria on your skin which can in turn reduce blemishes.
I like the bag that the Coffee Coconut Scrub comes in. It stands up well, is resealable and waterproof, so you can keep it in the shower or close to the bath for use whenever you have a spare 5 minutes. When using the scrub, it comes out of the bag quite dry which makes it easier to put on and rub around. As you rub the scrub in, you can feel both the exfoliating properties as well as the oil. Immediately after washing the scrub off you notice a redness all around your body which shows that the scrub has increased the blood flow to these areas.
