Review: Bean Body Coffee Scrubs
Following my recent post on exfoliation - I find so many people exfoliate their face, but they ignore the rest of their body. Just like removing dead skin leaves your face looking fresher and more vibrant and smooth, exfoliation does the same for your body. The most ignored areas are generally the back and booty. If you find you experience a bit of acne or bumps in these two areas, try exfoliating - often times it will really help the situation because you're removing the layer of dead skin, dirt and oils. I've recently been trying out the Bean Body Coffee Scrubs and my skin is just loving it! My legs and body feel soft and smooth as well as moisturized, which is such a bonus when it comes to scrubs!
Unlike a lot of coffee scrubs, this one is packed full of skin loving oils such as coconut oil, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. Hyaluronic acid is also tops the list, which is a favourite skincare ingredient of mine. If you're not familiar with hyaluronic acid, it pulls moisture from the air into your skin to help improve hydration levels.
Despite having all of these good oils it doesn't feel greasy in the slightest. The scrub has a texture that is rough enough to remove the dry skin, but not so rough that you feel as if you're scratching up your skin. Many scrubs are overly aggressive, but this one isn't. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, nourished and moisturized - not heavy and greasy, which is why I love this scrub so much. While I do have scrubs that leave a heavier feeling on my legs and body, which I actually appreciate during the dry, winter months, this one is much lighter and will be perfect for summertime weather.
The scrub itself really has a pleasant coffee scent with a hint of the coconut or peppermint scent added. My entire bathroom smelled like coffee heaven for a couple of hours afterwards, which I actually rather enjoy, since I'm a huge coffee fan! The packaging is a zip top bag, which makes it easy to store and keep fresh, but also easy to reach in and scoop out a handful to use.
While the scrub claims to help with cellulite and stretch marks, I'm really not sure about those claims. I don't believe much can help with these in terms of skincare, but I do believe it will help with dry skin, minor imperfections and possibly issues like minor back and body bumps as I previously mentioned. The Bean Body Coffee Scrub is however
✔ natural ✔ organic ✔ cruelty free ✔ vegan ✔ no parabens or nasty ingredients
One thing I was asked about when I posted this on Instagram was how was the cleanup. I think this is because I posted pictures in the bathtub - I had to do this because my shower is fairly small and it's quite dark...I couldn't get good pictures to show the colour and texture of the scrub, so I had to take them from my soaker tub. That being said...it did leave coffee grinds all over the bottom of my tub and around the inside. It did wash off super easy - most of it with just a splash of water and the rest with a quick swipe. Normally I use this is the shower (as I imagine most people would) and I have zero cleanup using it that way. It all washes right down the drain and leaves no grinds or staining behind.
