I will preface this review by saying that my skin is incredibly sensitive. It reacts (typically in the form of pimples) to countless products, and, as a result, I have become very mindful of the ingredients in everything I put on my face. After having a look over the ingredients in the original coffee scrub, I didn't think there was anything potentially irritating. I decided to give this scrub a try on my face after reading many positive reviews written by women with skin just like mine. Many even considered this scrub to be a godsend after years of struggling with reactive, angry skin. Unfortunately, my experience was the very opposite of a godsend....a nightmare really. After 1 use, my face broke out into an itchy red rash. Everywhere but my forehead is red and covered in tiny little bumps. My skin has NEVER reacted this badly to any product EVER, and I have tried about a million different skincare products over the past 10 years. This scrub is going straight in the garbage. I would give it 0/5 if I could.

I had high hopes for this product since I was promised "baby soft skin". However, it made a minimal difference in my skin. It has been better than other scrubs I have tried, but still not what I am looking for. I will not repurchase.

I receive Frank's body scrub in my Ipsy bag so I gave it a try. I used it on my body only in hopes that it would make by skin appear more even. While it did give my skin a nice glow, the product itself is disgusting. First of all, it smells like day old coffee grounds and the scent stays on your body even after washing. Secondly, it gets everywhere. I used it in my shower and it stained my tub and tile and coffee grounds were everywhere which required an intensive cleaning afterwards and I still found grounds the next day. Lastly, the product didn't seem to be a miracle as advertised. Even if it did make your skin smoother and give it a glow, the smell and mess of the produce just isn't worth it. I rather use a lotion or other type of scrub.

i heard that frank body is amazing and there's nothing better than it so i decided to give it a try.
I bought the frank body bundle (2 coffee scrubs and body cream) i used the original scrub first, all over my body, and then my face. It caused my face to break out with white head pimples, blackheads and pimples under the skin(blind pimples). I also got acne on the side of my face. i read somewhere that after using Frank body on the face if you have oily skin to wash it lightly with a mild soap. i have oily to combination skin so that's what i did after using it and it still caused pimples to appear. maybe that is normal, but my face is really right now and i regret using it. i had one or two pimples before using it and now i have all around my face.
After using Frank body on my body, i started to get tiny red dots on my thighs so I immedialty stopped using it. i have sensitive skin but that doesn't happen from sensitive skin.
overall, i do not recommend this product as it has ruined my face and body.

this scrub actually left my face very soft but didn't decrease any marks or redness and actually started giving me heaps of blackheads and then I started to get a rash after using it for few months.

I ordered the bundle with four different scrubs, the facial cleanser and the facial scrub. I see lots of people not liking the body scrub because it's breaking out their face-on the website it shows the models putting it on their faces but with coconut oil and other oils and butters that are in the scrub, it probably WILL break you out. I got 4 scrubs in the bundle-coconut, cacao, peppermint and the one they call Original-it smells like one of those chocolate oranges you get at Christmas.
The packaging stinks, wish that would be changed, I will just transfer the scrub into a jar next time. The scrub isn't tightly packaged, like they are in jars, it's very fluffy and light, no dripping oil with these. Yep, it's super messy but that's no biggie with me. The ingredients are lush and it feels good to sit with this on for 10 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry. I feel super soft and not really that greasy. I just starting using this so I can't attest to any of the claims about clearing up cellulite. Just don't use this body scrub on your face, lots of pore clogging stuff. I will buy this again when I run out. The cacao, peppermint and coconut are my favorites.

I discovered Frank Body after a suggestion from a co-worker who said they had seen 'before and afters' photos on the Frank Body Instagram page of acne prone people like myself with clear skin after using the Frank Body coffee scrubs. I got totally sucked in and I didn't do any proper research.

I went ahead and bought the coconut coffee scrub, creamy face cleanser, and everyday moisturiser. The shipping was quick and I had the beautifully packaged products within two days (I'm an Australian consumer buying and Australian product). The only packaging which wasn't practical was the zip-lock paper bag for the coconut coffee scrub. I carefully transferred it to a glass jar with lid.

I really wanted to believe that this was working for me. But after only a week and a half I stopped using it as I was breaking out with more white heads than before I started using Frank products. All three products contained coconut oil which is highly comedogenic (clogs pores). And it certainly clogged my pores! I had at least one-two new white heads everyday. The cleanser and moisturiser also contained cocoa seed butter and sweet almond oil. More medium-highly comedogenic ingredients!

Because the coconut coffee scrub leaves a residue which is not suitable for oily skin people like myself, I would use the scrub first up in the morning. I would leave the scrub on for ten minutes and then rinse. Afterwards I would use the cleanser and then the moisturiser (only a pea size amount). At night I would just use the cleanser (double cleanse if I was wearing makeup), and then moisturise.

I did like how natural the products were. Not nearly as many nasty chemicals as my usual cleansers and moisturisers from Neutrogena. But now I have to try and clear up my even worse off skin and acne. Thanks a lot Frank. Do not use these if you are acne prone!

I feel this product would be a lot better suited to someone who has dry skin and NOT acne prone.

Wow! I usually don't write reviews, but I read tons of reviews before buying something, and I just had to add another good one. I have tried hundreds of products and this is probably the best scrub I have ever come across!
Cleared up my excema and makes my skin soo soft!
Worth the money!! Will Def repurchase when this bag runs out.
