Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use But First

Add water and scrub.

The reason for our insert in the jar is to control the amount of scrub that is poured out. Open the insert and pour some scrub into your hand, wet the scrub and use to exfoliate across your whole body.

To get the best exfoliating benefits scrub in circular motion across the skin.


Why is But First a dry scrub?

We use organic and natural ingredients in our coffee body scrub.

By making But First a dry Scrub the product stays fresher for longer.


Can I use it on my face?

Yes, its very important to exfoliate your face! 

We have found that the granule size might be a bit too coarse for some people’s faces, but don’t worry we have finer face scrub in the works for you.

 As with any product test on a small patch of skin before using everywhere.


Can I drink But First?

I know its tempting. I know it smells delicious.

...and I'd imagine that it tastes delicious to but please don’t!

I understand that it is exciting that we found a way for you to take your coffee into the shower but But First is not for consumption. If the scrub is ingested please consult your doctor.

Again, please don't eat or drink the scrub :)
