It seems the whole world is going crazy of coffee. We only used to drink coffee, then we started adding it to our desserts and meals, now we're putting it in our skin and hair products even! But hey, it's not like that's a bad thing.
After being a barista, I knew and loved so much about coffee but after all this time, tea is still my hot beverage soul mate instead! Still, i'd say like most other people who are into body and face scrubs, I'm getting my coffee fix in the shower!
Most brands that I've come across have the usual, a plain Coffee Scrub, Coffee + Coconut Scrub and Coffee + Orange Scrub. I guess when you think of coffee, that's the usual combinations we expect to see.
Besides what I stated above, MyScrub also offers Turkish Delight, Cookies and Cream and a Mummy Scrub, as well two coconut options. And if none of those really sound good enough, they let you make your own!
The custom option honestly made me feel like a 6 year old in a candy store when mum goes "you can get anything you want!" you'd go crazy wouldn't you?!
So MyScrub sent me a pack of one of their customs scrubs and let me pick what goodies I wanted in it.
But before I go into which scrub I've been using and my feelings towards it, I have to add that MyScrub supports Beyond Blue.
I will always love to support a brand who gives back in one way or another and this deserves a mention!
Beyondblue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to increase awareness and understanding of anxiety and depression in Australia and to reduce the associated stigma.
Most people have had some experience with anxiety, depression or a related condition, whether they've experienced it themselves or had family, friends or work colleagues go through it. BeyondBlue’s work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands depression and anxiety, empowering all Australians, at any life-stage, to seek help.
When you shop with MyScrub, you know you're also helping to support a good cause!
So now, what did i pick in my custom MyScrub? It was a tough choice, that's for sure. But eventually I settled on:
If after reading this, you want to try what I had, you know what to get now and I'm pretty damn sure you'll love it as much as i do!
I guess it would have been easy enough to just pick their Orange Zing Scrub but there's something more exciting about it when you add those few extra ingredients.
They make it easy by telling you what each ingredient will do for your skin and we all know as fun as it would be to pick orange cause you love all things orange, it's good to know that orange oil and peel can slow ageing, tone your skin and help with acne!
Just like with all skin products, I tested it out for about 3-4 weeks before I decided what my final feelings were on the scrub.
Thankfully, MyScrub passed the test! (YAY!) With my first use I swear the smell of orange in my mix was enough to make me want a jaffa cake so badly - and normally I don't even like jaffa.
I made my pick based on what I thought I needed most at the moment. With my skin breaking out, and definitely being quite sensitive - I can rarely use non natural skin products anymore - I pretty much chose anything that had "sensitive skin" or "acne" it in!
So after about 4 weeks of ue as of today, I'm pretty much in love. I made a good pick and MyScrub makes a good mix.
I can't speak for every mix you can come up with but if you have any issue with sensitive skin like I have and if you're currently breaking out all over your face I'd say give the mix I picked a shot. For the first time in almost a month my breakouts have started going down. Of course, there could be many factors contributing to this but the big change was using my scrub twice a week so I'm giving them credit for it!
Next time though, I'm trying something with Rose and Peppermint in it!
Get yourself a pack of MyScrub and let me know what you picked!
