Coffee or Tea? The Scrub Showdown + Giveaway


If you aren’t following Poor & Pretty on Facebook or Instagram, you may have missed a few of my latest additions to the Apothecary: Coffee Sugar Scrub and Green Tea Salt Scrub.

Coffee Sugar Scrub top

Made with organic and fair trade certified Colombian coffee beans, my Coffee Sugar Scrub boosts circulation and reduces inflammation. Plus it smells like coffee, which to me is a total plus.

Green Tea Salt Scrubs_600

My Green Tea Salt Scrub is handmade with matcha powder and green tea extract, which are masters at detoxifying, soothing eczema, and diminishing puffiness and redness, especially when used on the face.

If you’ve been reading Poor & Pretty for a while, you’ll know I’m kind of a tea fiend. You might even say I have a bit of a problem. (Stan and I have almost an entire kitchen cabinet devoted to tea.) I also love the smell of coffee. Not the taste, or the fact that it makes me jittery (even though I know some teas contain more caffeine than coffee), but I’m loving that I have coffee beans in the house — they’re so aromatic! So I thought it would be fun do to a little coffee vs tea contest.


Here are the deets: Win a 4oz Coffee Sugar Scrub or Green Tea Salt Scrub! All you gotta do is leave a comment below saying whether you prefer to drink coffee or tea, and which scrub you’d like to win! The contest is open to U.S. residents only until Friday, November 28th at 11:59pm EST.  Get an extra entry if you “favorite” either of these scrubs on Etsy. Good luck! This contest is now closed. Congrats to Zuleyka!
