oh, just some beauty favorites…

Totally inspired to do a favorites post.  No other reason!

Tarte Amazonian Clay shimmering powder in Champagne-this product was gifted to me and I honestly don’t think they make it in the shimmery quilted packaging that I have.  This is a beautifully buttery highlight with the right amount of shimmer.  It can be built up but looks beautiful wherever it’s applied.  (more…)

A beautiful mess-getting dirty to get clean, with Jealous body scrub!

Body scrubs have been a ‘thing’ with me for a minute now…..

But I won’t use just ANY scrub.  I’m actually not a fan of what I would call a “straight” scrub.  What I mean by ‘straight’ is a scrub that just strips and doesn’t hydrate.  Those are great at times and have their own place.  Just not in my shower.

My favorite scrubs are the ones that offer an exfoliation AND some hydration.  I haven’t found a whole lot of those types-I can count on one hand the brands I’ve come across.  Jealous body scrub is in this category and I’m sure you already know this review is positively GLOWING!

Jealous body scrub is a COFFEE scrub-here’s the details, directly from their website:

 All Natural Coffee Scrub with Premium Robusta Coffee, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Raw Brown Sugar, Sea Salt, Vitamin E and Minerals.
Tough enough to improve your skin’s imperfections yet leaving your skin feeling sexy & smooth after every use.

  • coffee grounds stimulate blood flow which help reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins, psoriasis & acne
  • brown sugar & sea salt exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin
  • cold pressed organic coconut oil hydrates & moisturizes your skin
  •  vitamin E & minerals protect and repair your skin

My thoughts:

  • A+ for packaging and marketing-the marketer in me screams for joy and does cartwheels over the eco-friendly, resealable packaging that is efficient in both design and with the amount of verbiage on it.
  • If you love coffee, you will LOVE the scent of this scrub because that’s exactly what it is!  It is actual grounds in look and fragrance and texture.
  • The scrub DOES what it says it is going to do-stimulate, rejuvenute, and hydrate.  Just keep in mind, this is going to be on you for 5-10 minutes.  My suggestion/tip/trick?  Do the jealous when you masque your hair (and if you’re not masque-ing your hair, why the hell aren’t you? DO IT!!! It’s good for your hair!).
  • The other tip/trick/suggestion I will offer up is to use the jealous when your tub/shower is in need of a thorough clean.  Because this is a coffee ground product, be prepared. It gets EVERYWHERE and I mean everywhere. However, let’s be optimistic-you will have a hydrated body AND a sparkling clean shower after you get through!
  • The social media team (or individual) at jealous also is quite clever -see some of their work here.  This motivates me to want to be healthier after seeing all these bikini-clad model types prancing around in the sun!

jealous body scrub is a winner to  me-I suggest you try it too!
