5. Scrubs

Bean Body Coffee scrub

Coffee scrubs are magic! They can leave your skin feeling so much softer and smoother. Coffee scrubs also have so many benefits such as reducing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, age spots, acne, blackheads and so much more! This would make a great gift for anyone.


The ingredients in Bean Body are also all organic, paraben free, cruelty-free and completely vegan. The ingredients do vary by scent, but generally contain a blend of coffee beans, organic coconut oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, demerara sugar, vitamin E oil and organic cacao. We recommend the classic Vanilla scent or Cocoberry.

Sugar Scrub

An alternative to coffee scrubs are sugar ones! These are also great exfoliates. The mandarin and mango scrub is specifically formulated to help with aging. It clears blemishes, soothes sensitive skin, promotes rejuvenation and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Forget those days of people faking to like your gift, these items are sure to make any woman happy this season. Happy Shopping!
