Booths have recently expanded their skincare range so that you can pick up your favourite beauty essentials while grocery shopping. Perfect for saving time and travelling from place to place. 

Coffee scrubs are all the hype on Instagram and since Booths had the addition of Mr Bean Body Coffee Scrubs, I just had to try it out! Keep on reading to find out if they're worth the rave!

Bean Body is an Australian brand that believes in affordable premium skin care, all of their products are made with natural, organic ingredients and they're vegan too! I have a lot of skin imperfections - eczeme, psoriasis, stretch marks, you name it, so I am beyond happy to take any help I can get.

The Coffee Scrub claims to provide the following benefits:

  • Caffeine will stimulate blood flow and help reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins and psoriasis. 
  • Demerara Sugar & Himalayan Salt will exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin, acne, whiteheads, blackheads, breakouts & other skin blemishes. 
  • Coconut oil will hydrate & moisturise your skin. 
  • Cocoa & Vitamin E are high in antioxidants which nourish & protect the skin, promoting cell repair & rejuvenation.

To use the scrub, you simply take a handful, scrub it in circular motions on damp skin and then leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing it off. I like to focus the scrub on my problem areas, which are my arms and legs. The coffee grounds are a little coarse which gives you a gritty feeling, personally I like it because it lets me know it's at work and doing a good job exfoliating all the dead skin cells away. The coconut oil coats your skin after all the buffing, hydrating your skin and leaving it feeling super soft and smooth. I find that the more I use it, the less obvious my psoriasis is. I'm super excited to keep using it to see more results. I love this stuff! It makes my skin baby soft and radiating like a glowy goddess ready to slay the day from the caffeine kick.

The Coconut scrub smells so heavenly! Honestly it makes me want to eat it because it smells that good! As for the Manuka Honey scrub it only smells like coffee, there's not really a honey scent to it. As of writing this post now, there are 6 different scents available.

The down side to the scrub is that it can get quite messy but that's the same outcome with all coffee scrubs. You'll need to rinse the shower or bath after using it otherwise there will be coffee grounds everywhere. Also I find that the coffee scrub leaves a brown tint on my body after. I like that it gives me like a mini quick tan but if I wanted the coffee residue to be completely gone, I would need to rinse with shower gel over.

Overall, the scrub is lovely. It smells divine, is gentle and actually works! I think a little coffee residue is worth the smoother, glowy skin. The ingredients are high quality and you can see that in the results. With regular use my skin has got better, I've been struggling with psoriasis my whole life so this scrub has done wonders. I definitely think it's worth the hype and I can see why it's a cult favourite.

For my UK lovelies in North East area, Bean Body Coffee Scrub are now available at Booths.
