Meet Your Matcha | Matcha Facial Scrub by Joe Scrub + GIVEAWAY & Discount Code!

You guys know how much I love my natural scrubs, and if you’ve got me on Instagram then you’ll know how much I love coffee. When I found out there was a Canadian company that offered a delicious coffee body scrub I just had to try it and review it. Meet: Joe Scrub. The best coffee scrub on the market (ok, I’m a bit biased because they’re Canadian!). But serious, I love it. You can read all about the goodness of Joe’s Coffee scrub right here!

Naturally as a blogger you tend to build relationships with brands, some come easier than others and some are long lasting. I’m happy to say Joe and I are kind of like best friends so sharing their new line of facial scrubs was a noooooo brainer for me because it’s like sharing about a real friends accomplishments! I’m going to re-highlight a few reasons why I love Joe Scrub and then we can dive right into the Matcha Scrub reviewwwww 😉

A Few Reasons Why I Love Joe Scrub

  • They’re Canadian
  • They use pure, natural ingredients
  • There are no nasty’s like parabens, synthetic colors or unnatural fragrances
  • They know that using bases like coffee and sugars is the best way to exfoliate your skin!

Ok, so from those points alone they’re already an awesome company with awesome products but of course! I’m going to share my fulllll-on review of the Matcha scrub now so you can truly see how awesome it is!

I used this scrub at night and in the morning to test out how my skin reacted at different times of the day and I have to report my skin loved it, every time! The package is really easy to open and all you need is a small scoop to scrub all of the face. It’s incredibly moisturizing and the sugar base is non-abrasive so it was really gentle on my sensitive skin! For those of you who don’t love green tea or matcha so much the scent of sandalwood is added (via essential oil) to give a fresh clean smell but the smell of green tea is present so perhaps the coffee scrub is a better option for you; I personally really loved it! I left my scrub on for about 3-5 minutes and could really feel the effects of everything working on my skin. During winter I tend to find my skin, including my face gets pretty dry, my forhead even gets pretty itchy if it’s not moisturized on the regular. This scrub was so kind and moisturizing my face was really happy! Once I washed everything away I honestly, no lie felt like a new person! (ok, I tend to feel like that everytime I use a facial scrub buuuuuuut this one was awesome!). All of the dead skin is lifted away and your face just feels to soft and smooth.

The Matcha and Calendula Oil work on reducing inflammation while the Coconut and Apricot Kernel oil work to really hydrate the skin. I love that the ingredients list is so simple and I can pronounce every ingredient included! That’s a big deal in the beauty world and a great way to ensure you’re getting a natural product!
