Jealous Body Scrub | Almond + Macadamia

Back in March Jealous Body Scrub* reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to try out their product - a coconut and coffee body scrub (HERE). On Wednesday they added 4 new coffee scrubs to their range, and I was lucky enough to receive one of their new scrubs to try out before the launch! If your not familiar with the brand, Jealous is a Canadian brand based out of Vancouver, that sells body scrubs. Their body scrubs are handmade with 100% all natural ingredients. The newest one that I got to try was their Almond + Macadamia scrub! With the help of sweet almond oil and macadamia nut oil, it promises to help skin irritation and complexion for dry and mature skin! 

After trying out the original Coconut + Coffee scrub, I was hooked. I used up the entire bag and miss it in my shower routine - I definitely need to repurchase it! It is a great exfoliator and left my skin feeling silky and smooth. I was super excited to see what was being released in the launch BUT unfortunately, I can't use this new Almond + Macadamia scrub... I am allergic to nuts, and just touching this product to take photos of it made my arms break out in hives and itch like crazy. I will not be able to use any of the new products from the line, however my boyfriend Collin has happily been using this new scrub to get super soft and moisturised skin! I think that the only bad thing about this new line is that most of the new products include nut oils - a no go for people like me that have allergies!

To use, all you need to do is hop in the shower, get your skin wet or damp, take a handful of the product, and scrub it into your skin in a circular motion. They recommend leaving it on for 5-10mins, but I have never left it on that long because I am too impatient and just want to stand under the water. It also smells very strongly of coffee (which I love), but if your not a fan of the smell of coffee this range of products is not for you! I don't love that I end up smelling like a barista for the rest of the day, so I always followed up with some shower gel to get rid of the coffee stench! 

The only thing I don't love about this product (other than the fact that I am allergic to it) is the packaging and the mess.. I mentioned this in my previous blog post on the original scrub, but I'm sorry Jealous, your packaging really could be better! The brown paper bag is just not great when you have wet hands, and it just doesn't look pretty. Like I said before - I think this would be a whole lot more useful if it was sold in a large pot (I know that would make shipping alot more difficult, but hey - I'm just being honest)! Also, this product leaves your shower in a hot mess... The coffee grains go absolutely EVERYWHERE... but nonetheless, the mess is totally worth it!


The launch included a Almond + Coffee, Almond + Macadamia, Grapeseed + Macadamia, and Cocoa + Almond scrub. Jealous Body Scrub is available online at www.jealousbody.com for $18.95 a bag, and they offer free shipping to the US and Canada! I will definitely be buying another bag of the coffee and coconut scrub! Job well done Jealous & Congrats on your launch!
