Frank Body Coconut Coffee Scrub – First Impressions & Review

Frank Body

Summer is coming! Is your skin ready yet? I can’t say that mine is. While I don’t tan or anything of that nature, its always nice to have soft, smooth, and radiant skin during summer for when your’e wearing dresses. Influenster was kind enough to send me a sample size of Frank Body Coconut Coffee scrub to try out, and honestly, I’m in love!

I love scrubs, making scrubs, and of course, using them. However, I’m not one to purchase them too often, so I was super pumped that one was included in the Prep VoxBox that Influenster sent me. The scrub that I received was the Frank Body Coconut Coffee scrub, a caffeinated scrub that promised to make my skin radiant and soft. I hadn’t tried out any products from their company before, so I was excited to get to try it out.

The Product

 

This coconut coffee scrub is:

  • Paraben Free
  • Nut Free
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty Free
  • Made with coconut oil, jojoba beads, coffee, and grapeseed oils

The full sized product comes in a resealable bag, perfect for using again and again

The Experience

One thing that seriously bums me out about scrubs in general is that my bathtub usually is left feeling like a slip and slide. The oil is left behind, and I am left totally unstable and usually sliding around like an idiot. This scrub, however, did not leave my tub feeling slick.

On the flip side through, my tub was covered in coffee grounds. I’m not really a fan of having to clean my tub after a shower. However, this scrub left my skin the smoothest its been in a long while. It does somewhat look like your scrubbing yourself with dirt (ha!) but the smell is fantastic if your’e a fan of coffee. I’m not a coffee drinker, so I wasn’t a fan, but that’s simply because I don’t like coffee. I didn’t find that the scent lingered or was bothersome though. If you’re into coffee, you’ll probably be in love.

Final Thoughts

While I’m not the biggest fan of the mess, I actually think that there is more of this scrub in my future. The scrub is natural, affordable, and really gets the job done. I felt that my skin looked better, more glowy, and I loved how my skin felt after.

Thanks again to Influenster for providing me with this great product to try!

Mother’s Day is Coming! 9 Gift Ideas for Moms

It’s back again! Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up on me every year (May 13th this year!), leaving me feeling panicked and at a loss for gifts. My Mom is my favorite person, and I hate feeling short on ideas for her once her day rolls around again. I really hate asking her directly what she wants, because I think that gifts are really best a surprise and there’s no fun in just having her pick something out! This year, I’m compiling a list of 9 things that you can pick up for Mom to help her feel loved. Combined with the fact that all items will be available on Amazon, you’ll be able to receive your items quickly too!

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Outdoorsy Mom

Tevas! These shoes are so so so nostalgic to me. I grew up traveling to Colorado and the West in general, and it seemed like everyone in my little family was wearing a pair of these at some point. They are great sandals to keep for hiking and getting outside! I really want to pick out a pair for the summer, and I’ll likely be picking up these moon and sun patterned pairs! Gotta thank my mom for introducing these to me early on!

Hydration is key, especially when you spend time outside! This Hydroflask is great gift for a mom who spends a lot of time outside, so she can stay hydrated wherever she goes! I am a huge fan of toting water bottles and cups with me everywhere, because its just about the only way that I would be able to drink enough water daily. Plus, they come in a ton of cute colors to choose from!

Living in a climate that is as finicky as mine, you probably have a hard time with plants this time of year. It seems nice enough for plants to grow, and then BAM you have snow and frost again. Enter the Aerogarden, which allows you to grow flowers and vegetables year round hydroponically. Its so nice to have fresh plants in the home year round.

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Glamorous Mom

 

Give her the gift of cleaner and healthier skin! The Clarisonic can help anyone clean their skin, remove makeup, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I LOVE mine, it helps to take off tons of makeup, and leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, and soft!

If she’s into makeup, maybe a palette from Stila would be perfect! Neutral colors for tons of everyday looks, and night looks too! Stila’s quality is top notch, blendable, and easy to use. Any mom would benefit from these versatile shadows.
Jouer makes some of the prettiest glosses and lipsticks out there! They’re also super affordable, available with two day shipping, and are perfect to toss in your purse and take on the go! Easy touch ups all day long!

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Tech Mom

Help her keep connected wherever she goes! Anker makes some of the best portable chargers that everyone needs to toss in their bag or backpack. I love mine for trips to Disney, long study sessions in the library or walks outside when my phone is low on charge. Also, they’re great for making sure that people can stay connected, even if their phone dies!

Give the gift of reading with a new kindle! I love my kindle (I’ve had mine for years!) and love the super cheap books that I can get from Amazon. Also, they’re lightweight, easy to use, and fit in pretty much any bag. Perfect for relaxing at home, taking on a flight, or on vacation!

Lastly, the Bellabeat Leaf Health Tracker would be an awesome gift for any mom! A cute way to wear technology, this little guy can be worn as a pendent, while it tracks your movement, sleep, and other stats! Made specifically for women, this would be a great Mother’s Day gift!

You still have a couple weeks before Mother’s Day, what are you planning on picking up your mom? Let me know in the comment section below!

Influenster VoxBox Time! Prep VoxBox Goodies Unboxed!

Hooray! Another Voxbox has been sent my way thanks to Influenster! Its been a while since I received one in the mail, so I’m super excited to dive in! If you aren’t familiar with Influenster, its a program that links bloggers and creators with brands who would like their products to be reviewed! It’s a super fun way to try some new items out without spending, as everything you receive is free of cost, all you need to do is review the products honestly and maybe post about them here and there. They offer little badges for your account if you complete tasks with the items too!

This VoxBox is themed around college students, and their essentials! As a current college student myself, I am so thankful and excited to get to try these products out! They included a bottle of Not Your Mother’s All Eyes on Me hair product, FootPetals Sock Free Saviors, Shea Moisture primer, and Frank Body body scrub! I’m really excited because I have no prior experience with any of these products, so I will get to have a fresh look at all the treats!

I haven’t had the chance to try out my products yet, but expect reviews either posted here on my blog or over on my Instagram page! They just arrived today, so they should be up here over the next week or two. Trying new products is super exciting for me (it’s where I got my start in blogging!) so I’m excited to share how I feel with these products with you all over the upcoming weeks. They may be complimentary products, but my opinions will be real and honest!

Hope you enjoy the upcoming reviews, I’m so excited!
