We want nothing less than to fuel the unicorn fire. But if you are not fatigued by the internet’s inexplicable obsession, and want to tap into the mystical creature’s aesthetic, the shower is the place to start.
Thanks to Frank Body—the brand behind that cult coffee scrub influencers are rubbing all over their nearly-naked bodies on Instagram—you can slough off dead skin with sparkles using their new Shimmer Scrub. The 3-in-1 formula is made of salt, sugar, and Arabica coffee for exfoliating; grapeseed oil and Vitamin E for moisturizing; and tiny flecks of gold and silver mica for strobing.
We have yet to put it to the test in the shower. However, upon examining the stuff in person, we can tell you that you may come for the body highlight, but you’ll stay for the packaging, which is holographic and bound to be the new pièce de résistance of your shower caddie. Then, when you open up the electric pouch, you will spent the next few minutes literally wafting the scrub’s sugary-coffee scent. It’s addicting.
Applying the scrub to the back of our hand waterless, it leaves the slightest glint—like a soft, microfine highlighter. We imagine that after massaging it into the body, then washing it off, it’ll leave a subtle glisten only visible in certain light. And it’s probably better that way.
You can nab the Frank Body Shimmer Scrub for $19.95 at frankbody.com beginning May 1st. In the meantime, we’d advise against duping it by pouring loose glitter into your body wash.
