Butt Naked Body Scrub

Time to put the focus on another Australian brand! Body Scrubs and Coffee Scrubs have become so popular lately, and I love discovering new brands that are trying to do their own twist on this. Butt Naked focuses on the bare essentials, aiming to craft the very best organic skinfood. Derived from only natural and organic ingredients they bring you body scrubs that your body deserves. Based in Melbourne, Butt Naked is 100% Australian owned, sourcing their coffee from the best baristas to reduce environmental waste. Not enough good things for you? Well just know that they donate 5% of their profits to save a dog scheme (YES! They save the puppies!!!!)



Coffee + Epsom Body Scrub*

Butt Naked has a few different body scrubs, as well as a scrub + soak. The Coffee + Epsom Body Scrub has very few ingredients, consisting of Roasted + Ground Robusta Coffee Beans, Grapeseed and Coconut Oil, Raw Brown Sugar, Epsom Salt and Mint. Super simple. Now if you're not a huge fan of coffee, than do not fear, because I have to say the coffee scent isn't super strong. When mixed with the mint and oil, it becomes really refreshing.
This Body Scrub is designed for a 'workout recovery'. I was very intrigued when I read this on the front. 'Workout Recovery? How does it help for that?!' I thought. Well, let me tell you something. It would be absolutely perfect for post-sweat sesh, or for aching muscles as it tingles a little bit when you put it on the skin. Not 'oo my skin hates this' tingles, but 'wow that's refreshing!' tingles. I found that using this on a particularly hot day, or after I had some a workout, it just helped my muscles relax. It has an instant cooling and refreshing sensation as you massage it into the skin. Had I tried this scrub in the middle, I'm not 100% sure that I would enjoy that sensation as much, but it is absolutely perfect for summer, whether you workout or not.
As for the scrub itself, aside from the refreshing tingle, I love it. It is quite a fine coffee scrub, but the mixture of Raw Brown Sugar and Epsom Salt gives it enough coarseness that you able to get a good exfoliation going on. It left my skin feeling super soft and refreshed. 
All in all I've been a huge fan of this scrub. The simple and all natural ingredients make this scrub work well for any skin type, even sensitive. I definitely recommend this for anyone who works out regularly as it really does help relax your muscles after an intense sweat session. Butt Naked, itself, is such a fun brand and while they only have a few products at them moment, they do these ones really well. I am excited to try more from the brand now.
Have you tried anything from Butt Naked before? What is your favourite? Or what do you most want to try?
