Its been a long time coming, but I have finally found the time to sit back, relax and put up this blog post. For ages I have heard about coffee scrubs and never really understood the hype. I mean coffee... on your skin? Maybe its because of how I grew up but this idea, this new craze, didn't really have me jumping for joy and running up and down the high street looking for coffee to slap onto my skin.  Or maybe it is because I have never been fond of that strong coffee smell, like who actually goes into a coffee shop and breathes in the coffee smell in the air and thinks... oh this is the life? Not me I tell you, it usually has the opposite effect, I pop in smell it in the air and feel sick. I guess you wont find me in Starbucks getting happy about a new cup and a caramel latte... Damn! I'm missing out on all those typical blogger goals. haha

Then suddenly one day, postman pat knocks on my door and hands me over a package. And there amongst the tissue paper was a gifted coffee scrub, not for me to try but a gift. So after sticking my nose up at the idea. I actually had a chance to see if I could be proven wrong. Of course I was more skeptical. Now three bags in (constant repurchasing) I can honestly say i'm no longer skeptical.... Since then the Bean Body brand has been my favourite to purchase as it has infused scents that makes the coffee not as strong.
The Bean Body coffee bean scrub helps to soften moisturise and hydrate rough, dry and dehydrated skin as well as treat stretch marks and cellulite. This product can certainly last longer than what you expect it too. I use this beauty to exfoliate my body up to twice a week. Rinsing myself down in the shower to ensure my body is wet and ready for the coffee granules to stick to my body, I use a few handfuls in order to get my whole body exfoliated massaging it into the skin in circular motions, I've noticed ive come quite accustomed to falling into a anti-clockwise routine.

Once fully coated in the peppermint good stuff I end up sitting on the edge of the bath watching something on Netflix to pass the time whilst the coconut oil, vitamin e and sea salt gets to work, as it suggests to let yourself naturally dry for up to five minutes. But I never follow the rules because I am a rebel, I constantly change up the waiting time depending on what ive got going on. Usually I find myself pulling out all the stops, avocado face mask on, deep conditioning hair treatment mask on and soaking my feet in a shallow bath to get rid of the crust. (Yes we all get crusty feet). And once i'm ready to move on I rinse off all the granules to unveil super soft silky smooth moisturised skin that even a new born baby would be jealous of,... take that baby.
Bean Body do have other scents and infused scrubs to their range so make sure to keep an eye out for them, So I guess I was proven wrong, (I'm not going to hype as it still has a lingering smell of coffee but it isn't as bad as I first thought) It definitely is a lovely product and as someone who suffers with psoriasis I am very cautious about what I use on my body, as it can cause my skin to become more inflammed or irritated and this done the complete opposite, calmed my skin and reduced the redness. What more could I want?  

Bean Body gets a 9/10 from me! You can find the range here
