Try this at home: a DIY Coffee Body Scrub to blast cellulite!

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time now, you’ll know I love trying new food around the world. Through my travels I’m able to try so many great foods and experience so many new things, but when I get home after a long (and incredibly indulgent trip), all I want to do is detox, sweat out the toxins in Bikram Yoga, and refresh myself and my body for the next indulgent trip (work hard / play hard, right!?)

This DIY coffee body scrub is made to blast away cellulite, but to be honest I love it mostly because it berids my body of dead skin and leaves my skin feeling oh-so-fabulous, thanks to a healthy dose of coconut oil!

    We make coffee every morning with our Italian Moka ) and I use the rest of the coffee for my scrubs, sometimes I simply add it to the shower gel or to the hair conditioner and scrub the scalp – great for hair growth 🙂 Not suitable for blondes though.

    Try it for your har

    I’ve been hearing a lot about these coffee scrubs lately! If there’s one thing my pantry is never in short stock of is coffee haha, so I think it’s about time I give this a try. Thanks for sharing, Brooke!

    Boots now has a lovely coffee scrub in store! Really decently priced too & flavored & has essential oils in it too!
    Although a DIY is better as I don’t often use scrubs….
    Thanks for the recipe!

    I have heard of this trip before and I think it’s so nice to re-use something that you would just throw away otherwise.

    I really like how you show another type of post on your blog. Not that I don’t like the usual post, they are awesome!

    Checking your blog before I travel somewhere is a must-do for me ;D

    Do you do this with the USED coffee grinds after making coffee? Or does it have to be fresh coffee?




    February 14, 2016

    I can’t wait to try this!




    February 14, 2016

    This is perfect, I have a coffee machine that grinds beans, and I’ve been wondering if there is anything I can do with the grounds after! Will have to try this now 🙂

    It works just fine if you substitute the Almond oil for more coconut 🙂 Either way feels sooo good on your skin!



    February 14, 2016

    Such a good idea, I will try it for sure! I love coconut oil either!



    February 14, 2016

    I have been wanting to try this!! Now I am convinced that it must work!! Im going to give this a try for sure.



    February 14, 2016

    Ooooh this looks like a good scrub – especially when it includes coconut oil (one of my favourite beauty ingredients). Thanks, I’ll try this!

    Though, do we need to add the almond oil? It’s a bit hard to find here, but if it’s essential then I’ll try until I find it.
