Have you see all of those pictures of people showering on Instagram with what appears to be dirt all over their face? The chances are that’s Frank, and if you haven’t heard about this amazing body scrub, I’m here to shed a little light about the product and tell you all about my experience with it. Because if it’s not painfully obvious already, where there’s an Australian made body scrub there tends to be an excited ac with a packet or bottle somewhere in the country raving about it.
There are three separate products available through the Frank website, the Original Frank Scrub, the Coconut & Grapeseed Frank Scrub (the one I’m currently using a reviewing) & The Cacao Frank Scrub. Each of these targets different areas and issues, and after reading up on them, I decided that the Coconut & Grapeseed was the way for me to go although it’s best you look into which suits your particular needs.
The Frank wesbite said that this product would target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne. I have issues with acne and it’s something I’m trying to get under control with natural products having tried everything under the sun medication wise and having stopped just short of trying ProActiv. The acne has not been great on my easily-scarred skin. I’ve got so much scaring which has left my skin red and sensitive from all skin problems I had as a teenager. That’s not to say that it’s still not an issue – I get red, I still have bad acne weeks but it is what it is. I’m just I’m managing it better than I ever was at say 15 or 16 years of age.
I wanted to see this skin situation completely changed, I wanted to see my skin clear enough so that I could just wear a BB cream, or perhaps nothing at all if I was really lucky, and it has changed in so many ways – I’m not at the goal yet, but my skin has changed, and I attribute that in part to this product.
I’m not going to lie, if the smell of coffee leaves you feeling sick – this probably isn’t the product from you as it is a scrub made from ground coffee beans. However even though this is the case I tend to find the coconut and grapeseed scents are much more noticeable, and they tend to be what is left on your skin when rinsed. It’s pleasant and not all that overpowering.
It’s easy to apply, two small handfuls is all I need to scrub my entire body, I add a little water to those handfuls, spread it and then let it dry for 10 minutes. Once done, rinse – things get messy. But hey that’s part of the fun. I tend to find I like to wash myself down with a nice natural soap (eg. Goats Soap or something from Lush) afterwards as it does leave an oily residue on my skin and that resolves the issue. But once dry you’ll feel the difference. It’s noticeable and it’s beautiful. Very few products have given my skin such a fresh, hydrated feeling as Frank does and as I suffer from incredibly dry skin it’s something I love.
In time, with two or three scrubs a week I’m noticing the settling of my skin, the acne on my arms and chest has vanished, and my face is beginning to become clearer and less red. I can see the difference, although so can everyone who used to enjoy the lovely white shower curtain in our shared shower…
This is truly another beautiful, Australian product and I love it. I have no trouble recommending it to anyone – even guys, I know I’m trying to get a few of the ones I live with to use it, with no success as yet (I will keep you updated!) – plus with a packet lasting a couple of months, for less than $20, it’s amazingly well priced. It’s worth a shot if you’re looking for something natural to try, it’s getting amazing results, just check out their Instagram.
I adore #thefrankeffect, and I hope you will too!
Have a lovely day!
