Mr Bean Coffee Scrub, Coconut - review


We received this body scrub in a recent Violet Box. You could have received either coconut or mandarin, and I'm very happy I got the coconut version.

Having said this, I love this scrub so much - indeed, it hit HG status from the first use - that I would happily try it in any flavour.

Errrmaaagawd I love this product. It hit HG status from the first use and it's stayed there at the top of my body scrub list, equal only with my other HG scrub from Villainess.

I've received a lot of dry scrubs recently through subscription boxes, and they tend to be quite messy and a bit of a hassle to use. I don't find that with this one - maybe because the scrub isn't quite dry so it adheres to skin better, meaning you don't lose half of it in the shower since it stays where it's meant to.

Every time I open this product, I get a lift. It smells like coffee and coconut in a rich, complex way and I enjoy using it for that reason alone.

The texture is also wonderful and I love rubbing it across my skin. While it does exfoliate well, the grains are also quite soft - so they're not too harsh and scratchy like some dry scrubs can be. Something in the product also seems to melt into my skin, and the scrub feels nourishing/hydrating as well as being a great exfoliant.

On the claims: I do think this improves skin imperfections while leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth; it does feel like it stimulates blood flow and removes dead skin; and it does feel nourishing and protecting at the same time.

When I was researching this product to write this post, I saw that you can use it on your face as well as your body. I haven't done that yet but I intend to next time I shower because I reckon my face will love it as much as my body does.

All in all, this is a brilliant scrub and I'm so glad I've tried it. I'll definitely be buying it once this packet has run out!
