Started with Frank Body Coffee Scrub, which has become a holy grail for many babes, Benscrub now offers over 500+ products within 40+ brands from Australia, New Zealand, UK, US and France. We love Benscubs for their lesser known skin care brands with a more clinical and organic focus. Benscrub carries natural organic based products such as Lucas Papaw, Antipodes, Jurlique, Kora and Grown Alchemist, and FrankBody Coffee Scrub is the most coveted brand that has received great feedback from customers.
We love Benscrub for its mission to rethink beauty by selling a line of skin care essentials to celebrate realness rather than covering it up.

What makes them different is that they sell cosmetic brands like Nars, Anastasia Brow (super famous), Koh Gen Do, and even Christian Louboutin Lipstick (which is very premium but surprisingly sought a lot after by make up devotees), Chanel (which usually could only be purchased in their beauty store in Plaza Indonesia), and Charlotte Tilbury (which has been raved by both beauty bloggers and non beauty bloggers).
