So I want to take a second and talk about skin care. Obviously, as a style blogger, my main objective is to find great deals for my readers… but no matter how cute a garment may be, it’s only going to look great on those who feel good in their own skin. And I mean all of your skin… not just your face.
I was recently introduced to Nubotanik, a body scrub specifically created to help smoothen and nourish skin with all natural active ingredients. It contains Coffeeberry (yes, it’s a thing) from the whole coffee fruit, rather than JUST the coffee beans, like other coffee scrubs have. As it turns out, coffee beans come from INSIDE the coffee fruit, but the fruit part is usually just thrown out…. the biggest mistake of all. Coffee fruit that’s harvested at just the right point in the season is like serious TLC for skin.
So… HOLY. SHIITAKE. MUSHROOMS. I’ve tried coffee scrubs before– I actually used to make them myself. But Nubotanik is unlike anything I’ve felt in my life. Like…How? HOW!!? It’s like witchcraft. I don’t understand it. It’s so exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time, which I didn’t even know was possible. Isn’t that an oxymoron? I’ve actually been focusing it on the back of my thighs, because (let’s be honest), I’ve been living in the south on and off for the last five years and I like my fried food. I’ve got a little cellulite going on, like any woman, and I’ve already seen a difference in just a few applications. Between increasing my water intake, getting back on my squats, and scrubbing my cellulite away, my summer body is about to be LIT.
(Finally! I’ve been wanting to use that word in a sentence for so long.)
My skin has been soaking up this Coffeeberry business. And I mean all of my skin. I’ve been using it on my feet in between pedi’s, all over my whole body in the shower (I may or may not have taken in a glass of wine and enjoyed both), and on my face as an exfoliant. I’m super excited to tell you guys about this- because you’re worth it and you should treat yourself, obviously- but also because Mother’s day is coming up! Seriously, how perfect of a gift would this be, with a bottle of wine, for your Mom?
And here’s another doozy: they make a MEN’S scrub! It’s a Mountain View scent and great for all the icky things boys do. They’re so hard on their skin at the gym with all of that sweat. Totally getting Alex a bag for after killing it on the court. (That was shameless girlfriending… carry on.)
Another plus? The bag is HUGE. 7 oz? Seriously? I was expecting a much smaller portion. I had already done a little research before it arrived and found out how long Coffeeberry lasts (a little goes a long way), so the fact that this bag is packin’ so much means this baby is going to last me for a lonnnngggggg time. (Cue awkward dance and Marvin Gaye’s Let’s get it on.)
One bag of Nubotanik retails for $21.99, which is pretty much forever in Coffeeberry years.
