First Impressions: BUB Scrubs Coffee Scrub*

Hey Guys

Today I wanted to share with you a first impressions with a product that I have only used once, BUB Scrubs Coffee Scrub*. Coffee scrubs are currently all the rage and I was yet to jump on the band wagon as I was happy using my normal body scrubs and I was also trying not to get sucked into buying anything thanks to my spending ban. But when I was given the opportunity to try out one of their vegan and animal cruelty free scrubs by the lovely Shauna I could not resist. 

I received the coconut coffee scrub which obviously smells like coconut and coffee which I really like, it is quite a strong smell and I know that some people are not a fan of either coffee and coconut but I love both of them and they work well together. BUB Scrubs do offer an alternative to the coconut however which is green apple, I think that this would be quite an interesting smell. 

The ingredients are:

Roasted & Ground Arabica Coffee Beans: will target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema & acne.
Jojoba Beads, Brown Sugar & Sea Salt: will help smooth out any lumps and bumps you may have.
Grapeseed Oil & Coconut Oil: will moisturise & hydrate your delicate skin & tend to any imperfections.
Vitamins & Minerals: make you feel fresh & new.
Coconut Essence: will have you smelling & feeling great.

My main concerns before using this scrub were cellulite, stretch marks and acne. Obviously none of these will go away after just one scrub but I was hopeful that I would see some small result or at the least very soft smooth skin!

The directions on the back of the packet are:

Shower/Bathe your body as usual
Grab two small handfuls of Bub Coffee Scrub
Rub and scrub in a circular motion then let dry for 5-10 minutes
Rinse off the Bub Coffee Scrub leaving you to feel refreshed & clean 

Wow. I should have jumped on the bandwagon ages ago! My skin felt super soft after using this, I definitely think it was because of the oils contained in this scrub rather than the scrubbing action because I was actually quite careful to not scrub too much. Granted this is extremely messy to use and can make your bathroom look like you rolled around in dirt before showering it off, but the positives of using this scrub far outweighs the negative of a messy bathroom. I did also find it a little difficult to hang around for 5-10 minutes with the scrub left on my body but the longer you leave it the better you will feel afterwards. Be prepared for silky smooth skin that lasts well into the next day.

To purchase either of the scrubs you can email them at, there is a website ( however this is currently down. This scrub retails for $18.95 AU but can often be found on sale.
