If You Want to Know
As much as I love the idea of DIY beauty recipes, not everyone has the time to turn their kitchen into an at-home beauty lab. Even when I do find an exciting recipe, my local grocery store doesn’t exactly have game-changing ingredients like mongogo oil or shea butter. Thankfully, there’s a brand like Purlisse that makes products that feel like they were made in a loving, organic kitchen.
The brand’s new Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub uses all-natural ingredients to send your skin to nirvana, or at least to Hawaii. With a rich, earthy texture, physically exfoliating ingredients like coffee and sugar cane slough off dead skin cells. Coconut oil, coffee, shea butter, and cupuaçu seed swoop in to moisturize and soften skin.
You’ll notice skin that’s immediately softer and smoother. Especially in the winter, when no amount of moisturizing can stave off flakiness, a quick scrub helps restore skin until it looks like, well, actual skin again. I used generous dollops of product on each leg. Thanks to the rich texture, it feels like a luxury experience—all while adding a full-bodied coffee smell to the bath. The scrub would definitely play well with a loofa or hand mitt, but I recommend ditching the bath products and just using your hands. The scrub is so thick and luxe that you’ll want to feel it directly, plus you’ll end up with softer hands. Use it on dry skin for an even deeper scrub, or in the bath for a (free!) spa experience.
If the best part is the scrub itself, a very close second is the package size. In addition to the regular-size tube, Purlisse makes sure to offer travel-size products, too, aka the most useful thing for a brand to do. Because no one wants flaky skin on the go, we recommend picking up the teeny-tiny 0.7-ounce tube. It’s small enough to fit in your travel makeup case (forgive me, but I have to call this beauty product cute!), but just big enough for a weeklong vacation. Once you’ve become addicted to the regular-size, 6-ounce tube stocked in your shower, you won’t want to leave home with scaly legs.
For natural beauty lovers, Purlisse has pledged all products to be free from parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates and animal products. It’s just as nourishing as if you made in your own kitchen, but even better because I didn’t have to get my pots and pans dirty.
