I'm a big fan of coffee scrubs and usually always have one in my shower, so I gave this a go a while ago when I saw it readily available in the supermarket. I liked that it was a very affordable price and cheaper than a lot of coffee scrubs I've tried. The scrub comes in a larger white water proof resealable bag, with coffee imagery. The scrub was quite fine in texture, and dark brown/black. The coffee and cacao scent was delicious, it smelt more of coffee than cacao but it was a delicious chocolatey coffee scent. The scent was nice and strong and lingered on my skin afterwards. I found the texture of the scrub too fine for it to exfoliate well, it also wasn't damp enough for the scrub to stick together enough to stay on my skin and massage it in, so most of it just fell off and went down the shower drain, and the scrub that stayed on my skin never exfoliated enough for my liking. I'm used to coffee scrubs leaving my skin feeling exfoliated and super smooth, which is an effect I only find coffee scrubs do, yet this one just didn't do that for me. I also found that despite the resealable packaging, it was hard for water in the shower to not somehow seep into the packaging and dissolve the remaining scrub, I think this would be better packaging in a tub to prevent wastage or water getting in. Overall, I wouldn't use this again as it was messy to work with and hard to keep on the body, and it just didn't scrub enough for my liking.
