Frank Body is a brand you’ve probably heard off thanks to their huge following on Instagram. Their famous body scrub is a favourite with many bloggers and celebrities so when they recently contacted me to see if I’d like to try their new range of skincare products, I jumped at the chance. When I received them in the post, I was really impressed with the packaging – it’s cute and quirky without looking tacky. The three products I received are from the ‘Sweet Cheeks’ bundle which includes the creamy face cleanser, creamy face scrub and everyday face moisturiser. I like that all of these products go together to make a routine and compliment each other nicely. I also love the box the products comes in which says ‘Hey, babe. I’m about to get all up in your face.’ It did make me chuckle and it’s a great place to store the products too!
The creamy cleanser is very creamy as the name would suggest and contains some great ingredients including green coffee bean extract, Marshmallow root and Echinacea extract, charcoal and coconut, grape seed and sweet almond oils. All of these wonderful ingredients work together beautifully to target impurities, nourish the skin and replenish moisture levels. I was surprised when I first used the product as it’s a charcoal grey cream which is quite unusual as most cleansers are a white or cream colour. I do like this though as it’s a bit different and more fun to apply ;).
Moving on to the scrub and I really like this product. As I mentioned earlier, Frank are famed for their body scrub so it was only natural for them to add a face scrub to their skin care line. Again, like the cleanser, the scrub is a deep brown/grey colour with exfoliating coffee granules running through it. I know manual exfoliators like this can often get a bad rep for being abrasive on the skin but this one is great – it’s very gentle but also very effective. I personally love exfoliators like this as I feel they provide more instant results that a chemical exfoliant but I guess it’s all down to personal preference. Again, this product includes some fantastic ingredients and generally does exactly what you’d want and expect from a face scrub.
Finally, the everyday face moisturiser. Moisturiser is essential for me as my skin dries out very quickly if I don’t use it so it’s important I apply it every morning after my shower and before applying my makeup. This one is very lightweight which I wasn’t sure about at first as it almost feels too thin and I’m used to fairly thick and heavy moisturisers. However, the more I’ve used it, the more I’ve grown to love it as it sinks into my skin super fast and is perfect to wear underneath makeup. I wouldn’t use it at night time as it just isn’t rich enough for my personal needs but for day to day wear, it’s great. It contains cocoa and shea butter which are both known for their moisturising properties and Vitamin E which protects and repairs your skin, targeting dryness, acne, fine lines and other skin conditions. As with the other products, it also contains green coffee extract and coconut, almond and grape seed oils.
Overall I’m really impressed with these products and will definitely continue to use them as I feel they’re doing my skin some good. They aren’t cheap to buy individually (£15.95/£17.95) but if you buy the bundle I have here, they work out fairly reasonably priced at just over £10 per product. You can order the bundle online here and find out more about the products too.
Do these products sound like something you’d like to try?!
