Bean Burst Coffee Scrub are specially formulated anti-ageing coffee based body scrubs. With ethically sourced ingredients Bean Burst claims their scrubs will hydrate and moisturise skin in the deepest levels, resulting in a “brighter, firmer skin tone”. Bean Burst Body Scrubs are hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types.
After seeing some tasty looking images on Instagram of people posting from their bathrooms selfies covered in coffee, I was sent my very own bag or Been Burst. Now I have a coffee covered selfie too. lol
There are three different types of Bean Burst Coffee Scrubs.
There’s Sweet Orange Blend to Calm the body and give you radiant skin. The Peppermint Blend is to invigorate, brighten and energise your skin and finally, Grapefruit Blend to relieve stress, clear skin and uplift your senses.
I chose to try the Grapefruit Blend and my bathroom experience was…
Somehow messy I have to say, but fun at the same time. It’s a coffee scrub so you have to be prepared that your shower or bath is going to be a little messy afterwards. But it will also smell delicious for hours after you leave the bathroom.
The smell is divine; the scrub I used was fresh and very uplifting. It was quite tasty if I may say so and made me think of orange flavoured chocolate, my favourite btw. The texture was much nicer that I expected. The scrub was quite powerful. If you wish to use it on the face be extra gentle, and used all over body it works like a dream. You can feel it’s smoothing your skin and hydrating it at the same time. I wasn’t expecting such good hydration from a body scrub at all.
Occasionally body scrubs infused with essential oils can leave too thick residue on the skin but this one left my body perfectly smooth and hydrated. There was no need to use body lotion and my skin felt well hydrated also the next day. My body was smooth – it was very smooth indeed!!! And my skin had a lovely healthy glow, which I guess was due to the brightening power of grapefruit and hydrating properties of the essential oils. I hate to say it, but my skin felt better than when I use my favourite body scrub from Soap and Glory.
I wouldn’t swap my regular body scrub though. I’d probably use it as an add on and the only reason for it is the mess that’s left after. Sometimes I jump in the shower late at night but still want to use a body scrub, however I don’t fancy cleaning the bathroom afterwards. For those nights I’ll keep my Soap and Glory scrub, but for days off I will use my new fave Been Burst. Next time I may try the Peppermint Blend.
