I have a confession. I struggle with seriously dry skin. Maybe you’re thinking, “Oh, Breann, we all do!” No you guys, I’m not being dramatic, I have really terrible skin. Truth be told, it’s always been something I’m slightly embarrassed about. My legs always turn ashy a few hours after I apply lotion, and my arms and back are never as silky smooth as I like. That being said, I know we’ve talked about body scrubs and the importance of exfoliating regularly here at Lauren Kelp. It’s one of the best things you can do for the health of your skin, plus it makes you look so good! In my time I’ve tried a lot of different body scrubs. From high end to low at beauty stores, all the way to making my own (which I still do on occasion), I feel like I’ve seen it all and nothing has really been the absolute best. That was until I discovered Bloke Body Scrubs. Initially what drew me to Bloke was their on-point packaging and branding. However, once I opened that bag, my entire world changed. Well, my exfoliating world that is.
They have 3 different types of body scrubs, but I went with the Coffee & Sweet Orange for my first use. I wanted to bury my nose in the bag so I could smell it all day, it’s THAT good. It helps that the ingredients are natural and organic too! I started off by taking a nice long soak in a hot bath, which is one of my favorite things. The instructions ask you to rub a small amount of the product onto damp skin, so I drained the water and scrubbed away, focusing on problem areas like my elbows, legs, and heels. I could immediately tell it was unlike anything I had ever used. My arms have been particularly scaly this season, and the scrub worked some serious magic on them.
After I had everything scrubbed in, I let it sit for about 10 mins on my body and gently rubbed onto my face. Yes, you can use this stuff on your face! After the time was up I started up the shower and rinsed off. Let me tell you, with the steam and the scent of the scrub I was in heaven! When I was all dried off, I went to grab some coconut oil for moisture until I touched my arms and legs. I didn’t even need any at that point! The scrub already moisturizes for you.
One thing I love about it is you don’t have to scrub too hard to give your skin a good exfoliation. I applied hardly any pressure and my skin was silky afterward. The coffee is the real miracle worker of this product though. Per the Bloke website:
“The coffee’s caffeine stimulates blood flow and targets cellulite and stretch marks. The raw brown sugar and sea salt exfoliate dead skin cells to keep your skin smooth and glowing. It also has the perfect amount of coconut oil to keep your skin moisturized and healthy.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Bloke Body Products get the Lauren Kelp Beauty stamp of approval! For only $14.95 per scrub, we highly recommend them to all of our readers!
