Coffee body scrubs are big business in the beauty world right now. The exfoliating treatments claim to promote blood flow to improve the appearance of cellulite, banish dry patches and leave skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated, so it’s unsurprising that they’re flying off the shelves.
One of the bestselling coffee scrubs, Frank, receives rave reviews across the board, with thousands of fans praising its nourishing blend of coffee, oils and vitamins. A 200g pouch of their Original Coffee Scrub costs £12.95 – but now bargain supermarket Aldi is taking on the range with a budget-friendly version that’s half the price.
Aldi’s Lacura Coffee Body Scrubs are available in three (almost) good-enough-to-eat scent options – coconut, chocolate and orange – all with a grainy, exfoliating base of coffee and cane sugar. The scrubs are vegan friendly, cruelty free, and packed with natural ingredients including vitamin E, cocoa butter and sweet almond oil to refresh and revitalise your skin.
While the formula isn’t exactly the same as Frank’s signature blend, fans of the collection could find themselves enjoying the Aldi version just as much – and for just £6.99 (a 50 per cent saving) for the same quantity, they can afford to really pile on the grounds.
If you’re among those who want to give the new Aldi coffee scrubs a try, you don’t have long to wait. They’ll be in stores from Thursday 9 August, and are available to preorder on the Aldi website now, to be dispatched when they’re released.
While you’re there, don’t forget that you can also pick up Aldi’s other famous beauty buys, like the £4.99 Jo Malone-inspired body cream, bargain sheet masks and beauty sponges, and the £5.99 face mask that was hailed as a dupe for a £42 product. Who knew a trip to the supermarket could be so spa-worthy?
