This is quite a huge tub of scrub! And I am glad I bought it (sorry luggage, I know you have suffered with all the weight I put you through). The seeds are just about the right texture for a good scrub (body, too harsh for face). Passed the deo-pits test beautifully, without causing irritation to skin.

This managed to help to prevent ingrown hair too. I use this every other day - I tend to have dry skin on my legs, sometimes it gets scaly and started peeling. With regular scrub, and top with a good lotion after that, it keeps the peeling at bay.

The scent is refreshing as well, I like the woody smell. Rinses off very easily, no greasy leftovers. Does not cause sensitivity too. I have one more use before bidding it goodbye, and I find the tub pretty good for recycling. Like, keeping my cotton pads, or storing my "bedak sejuk" (rice powder).

My favorite scrub is homemade. I don't know if it's known or popular in SEA so here we go:
you will need: ground coffee (aim for the cheapest, no need to waste cafe illy), salt, ground cinnamon. I cannot give you exact proportions but obviously if you want it 'stronger' you need to use more salt. Basically coffee-sugar 1:1 and add some cinnamon. You should brew the coffee first but if you are in a hurry, dry, straight from a box will do. Now, add some water so it's not too slippery and..voila! There are many variations: you might want to use sugar instead, add some natural oil or baby oil. Try it, it works magic

Awesome recipe Gosia! Especially with adding the cinnamon, I can imagine it smelling really yummy.

Reminds me of the tip that my mom shared some time back. But she was just using plain coffee grounds - i tried and it does leave me with super smooth skin :))

Only downside? I dont drink coffee haha but, Starbucks does give away their used coffee grounds whieee. I'm going to try with cinnamon and let you know how it goes.

I drink way to much coffee, but I use a French press (my precious coffee machine was left at home) so the 'leftovers' are too watery. Yesterday I went to a cafe and just ask for a bag of used coffee:-)
