Lately I’ve been trying out the Get Dirty NY coffee scrub. I have been eyeing all of these coffee scrubs on instagram thinking to myself how funny, I have been using my coffee grounds this way before it was a thing. I am a coffee addict. The only thing I love more than coffee is probably wine and chocolate but you can’t really have 10 cups of wine or chocolate daily without someone telling you something about it. I also love coconut oil. I have been using it for as long as I can remember, some of my oldest memories are of my mom and dad making coconut oil. When I saw that Get Dirty NY incorporated my two favorite home made beauty products I had to try it.
This scrub is made with locally sourced Arabica Coffee (mmmm), unrefined virgin coconut oil, unrefined sweet almond oil and organic essential oils. ALL things I love, so I was not the least bit hesitant to try it. Now it smells like coffee but sadly it’s not the oh my holy morning mother of my soul coffee smell. I was quite disappointed but then I remembered it’s not coffee. Of course it has a strong coffee smell but it’s mixed with oils that have their own scent and while it didn’t smell bad, it didn’t smell so great either.
Exfoliating is something that is good to remove dirty and dead skin but if you have super dry skin it can strip away what little moisture is left on your skin and dry it out even more. If I exfoliate more that 2x a week my face gets dry and peels like I’m a snake shedding skin. This is the main reason I’m so happy I discovered this scrub. It strips away dirt and dead skin while moisturizing. All of the oils in this scrub leaves your skin a bit oily after use but then it quickly absorbed into my skin within 5 minutes and my face was glowing. Other exfoliators leave my skin dry and dull, so I was thrilled with the results!

I’m happy that they have given me extra to share with you all.
I will be giving away two packs of their scrub, one on instagram and one on my blog. My instagram give away is up now and will end on May 29th. You can enter here. I will randomly select one of my active blog subscribers to receive one pack of these scrubs on June 30th.
