Ever used cocoa as a beauty product? We haven’t either which is why we were immediately drawn to this scrub! The cocoa powder helps to tighten skin, fight aging, and prevent breakouts, the almond oil helps in moisturizing and lightening skin, and contains Vitamin E which helps with anti-aging and healing, and the peppermint helps calm and sooth your skin. We couldn’t think of a better way to wind down at night!
