Social media fad or cellulite annihilator? I’m still not entirely sure, either way at $14.95 Frank body scrub can stick around despite the overload of box gaps on their Facebook page.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Frank range of coffee scrubs were created in Melbourne by Willow & Blake; a communications agency that gets extra points for including the c-bomb in their Twitter bio (I like to live vicariously through other people’s sweary tweets).
Slim, young, beauty bloggers everywhere are talking up Frank’s ability to remove “potential cellulite” (like cellulite but with unrealised talents) but what about the box-gap-less/bikini-bridge-less among us? Are we not human too? Do we not bleed the same blood?
The stimulating properties of caffeine have long been touted as an anti-dote to cellulite. Personally I’m more a believer in diet and exercise and I don’t think a scrub alone will banish cellulite forever, however this is a great alternative to other expensive cellulite creams and in-salon treatments. It certainly makes your thighs feel soft anyway.
Would I recommend it? Yes. It’s messy but affordable and so far, mildly effective. But if you happen to know an Italian or two, you might be familiar with the below. In which case, feel free to collect the leftover coffee granules and come up with your own scrub while impressing your in-laws with your thriftiness.
I can almost hear my mother-in-law now “Perche?” Aah Italians, they care not for cellulite because they’re too busy enjoying the key to life. Food! If you’ve evolved to that point, well done, this is probably not for you. I’m still a work in progress….
Have you tried out Frank yet?
