I feel like I gush a little bit about so many independent brands but they are honestly the best things I have tried since going cruelty free. I don’t know if it is my sensitive skin or some other reason, but their products just seem to be so much better for me. So with that in mind I would like to go on and gush about another small, independent brand. I am currently in love with the You Dirty Scrub products.
The You Dirty Scrub base is in Scotland and their plan is simple, to have soft and supple skin whilst also caring about the world. The coffee body scrub can be used all over your body, including your face and comes with a long line of benefits. The obvious one is it improves skin texture as any good scrub should, but as coffee stimulates blood circulation it can help improve cellulite, speed up burning fatty tissue, reduce wrinkles and help with shadows under the eyes. With such a list of potential list of benefits I was obviously sold on giving it a try!
The scrub is £6.99 for 200g but a little bit goes a long way. The first day I used it I fell in love with the product. The scrub left my skin feeling smoother than anything I have used before, it is amazing!! I also really like the smell, it is a nice dull smell of coffee which is perfect to wake me up in the morning, if I could eat it I would, and to be fair you probs can, although I maybe shouldn’t encourage that….. The scrub is also really gentle and has not caused any irritation at all, which is pretty miraculous, especially for my face.
I can’t say I instantly noticed the dark circles under my eyes disappear, however it has certainly given my skin a more even tone and texture which for me is a godsend! To say I love this product would be an understatement, it is amazing!!
The only downside, there are only a couple of products, but hey if it aint broke don’t fix it! Have you given it a try? What did you think?
