I’ve mentioned my love for the Fig + Yarrow Coffee & Cardamom Body Scrub in several videos and posts. It is a lovely, luxurious body scrub that is very hydrating and energizing. Caffeine is also supposed to help diminish the look of cellulite (not sure if it actually does, but that’s what “they” say).
*Raw Shea Butter
*There are many ways to make this body scrub. I basically just eyeballed the amount of each ingredient until it was the consistency I wanted.
If you don’t want to use Shea Butter, you can replace it with olive oil/almond oil.
Once everything is mixed together it’s a very hydrating, yet exfoliating body scrub. It smells amazing & my entire kitchen smelled like coffee after I made it! Nice relaxing DIY project!
As you saw in the video, I melted some Cocoa Butter & mixed it in with the Shea Butter. After setting for a few hours, the Cocoa Butter hardened, which made the scrub difficult to use. I would recommend leaving that step out & using just the Shea Butter/Olive Oil depending on how you’re making it.
1 jar of my scrub costs around £5.50 to make.
1 jar of the Fig + Yarrow scrub costs £31.
If you’re not the DIY type, or you want to give the Fig + Yarrow scrub a go, you can find it at Cult Beauty. Read my full review of the Fig + Yarrow Coffee & Cardamom Body Scrub here.
Do you think you’ll give this a go? If you do, I’d love you to tweet me a picture @essiebutton : )
