In our line of work, we try a lot of products. That means we know what we love and why. I’d Buy It Again is a quick and dirty way to tell you about something we’ve tried and all the reasons we love it. These are never sponsored posts—only honest opinions inspired by our obsessions. This time around, we’re talking about Juara Invigorating Coffee Scrub.
Holistic health expert Jennifer Hanway made the case for cutting coffee, but she didn’t say there’s anything wrong with using coffee topically. Applied topically, coffee can be a natural anti-inflammatory and have numerous anti-aging properties. According to Dr. Doris Day, these benefits are tied to caffeine’s rich antioxidant content, which effectively evens skin tone and imparts an invigorated glow. Enter, Juara Invigorating Coffee Scrub.
What is it?
It’s an exfoliating scrub that combines ground Sumatra beans from Indonesia, rice bran oil, and walnut shell powder.
What’s the bottom line?
Normally, I don’t love body scrubs. (I prefer a loofah.) That said, sometimes a really intense scrub is everything you need. If I’m going to use a scrub, I want it to be intense and effective. This one is both.
Who’s it for?
How do I use it?
I use it once a week, all over my body. This is a pretty intensely invigorating, aromatic coffee scrub for when you really want a fresh start. For me, that’s usually on Sunday night or Monday morning.
What are the ingredients?
In this scrub you’ll find ground Sumatran coffee beans, rice protein, botanicals, and sulfate-free coconut cleansing agents.
How does it smell?
Great! It smells like amazing fresh coffee.
How long did I test it for?
The only downside is that the ground-up coffee will get everywhere. So your best bet is to use the scrub in the bath (or a shower with a detachable shower head) where it’s easy to clean.
Would I buy this again?
Yes! I already have, in fact.
Where can you buy it?
You can buy it here.
