The scrub comes packaged in resealable, reinforced brown paper. I have had it in my shower for a couple weeks now, and the packaging stands up fine to a little moisture and heat without breaking down. It's stored on the top shelf of a shower caddy, so it gets a little incidental exposure to water, but it's not in the direct path of the shower spray.
You are supposed to leave the scrub on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off, but I find it a bit impractical to just be hanging out in your shower for that long. Plus my hot water runs out easily so my showers are quick. But even on days when I can only manage a speedy 1-2 minute scrub and rinse, the coconut oil leaves my skin feeling extra hydrated and smooth.
Slight drawback is that it is a little messy and your shower/tub will look like you are washing off the results of being in a mud wrestling match. I will usually have to give my shower a quick spray down (not a big deal) because coffee grounds are all over the floor and low on the walls. The coffee grounds go down the drain easily and I haven't encountered any issues with that.

Stretch marks, on the other hand: I've been testing this scrub over the past few weeks and have noticed an improvement. I don't have severe stretch marks (they're pretty faded) but I do think it helped reduce their appearance. The packaging states that this is an effect of the coffee, but the FAQ says it is the effect of the exfoliation and moisturizing.
