Mr. Bean


Today I'm going to be talking about Mr. Bean, no not the creepy guy from that British sitcom--I'm talking Mr. Bean Body Care. First, a little background about the company. Mr. Bean Body Care is a 100% organic coffee scrub made from premium ingredients including organic fair trade coffee beans, Himalayan pink rock salt, Demerara sugar, and organic cold pressed coconut and vitamin E oils. It runs for roughly $18 (USD) but it available for purchase in many other countries as well! Mr. Bean comes in three options: coconut, mandarin, and Mr. Bean man. The particular one I've been using and will be discussing is mandarin.


First things first, I'm going to cut to the chase. I know I'd want to know right away if something works or not before I get into all the details. All I can say is... I think I'm in love. Very rare do I find a beauty product that I love; I'm more of a handbag/fashion kind of girl. But, let me tell you, this is a keeper. It's one of those things I'm going to be restocking before I even run out because I'm going to be too scared to go without it, not even kidding--I already have mild anxiety about not having another bag each time I use it. The scrub helps even out and repair rough/dry skin, stretch marks, and cellulite with regular use. It leaves my skin so smooth and soft--better than the feeling of a fresh shave, which is hard to beat. An added bonus not mentioned by the company itself is the glow it leaves behind. Sometimes, especially in the cool (pale skin) seasons, my skin can get a little dull and Mr. Bean is the perfect wake up call. After using Mr. Bean my skin looks bright, healthy, and slightly sun kissed. I notice the change most on my face which can start to look almost sickly if I wear makeup multiple days in a row or have a lack of sleep because of the purple tone of my acne scars. After two uses I noticed needed less concealer to cover acne scars and now after four I manage to get away with just my BB cream and some powder instead of my usual concealer, foundation, and powder combo--a lot of layers I know. It's an amazing and rejuvenating feeling to not have to put layers of makeup (I hate wearing it in the first place) to cover up blemishes and feel comfortable. It's been awhile since I thought my skin looked good without makeup; I now have Mr. Bean to thank for bringing my skin back to life! I told you Mr. Bean made my skin smooth and soft, but a lot of things make smooth skin--just not this smooth. Let me paint a picture for you. From weight training/workouts and other day-to-day activities my hands get rough, like manly gross rough (sorry to any males reading this if that offends you, but take it as a tip to help your own hands). Just from rubbing Mr. Bean on my body to exfoliate it completely got rid of all the rough/dry callused skin on my hands. What a lifesaver.
Now for the other common questions... how does it smell? Three words. To. Die. For. I am such a sucker for the smell of coffee shops, coffee beans, anything in relation to coffee, and this is just amazing. Mixed with the steam from the shower it just fills my bathroom with a pleasant aroma. Can I just sniff the bag? I was actually being serious. It's coffee beans with a fruity hint. Too good to be described in words. 
Finally, the golden ticket question for the price/value dilemma--so it works, but is it worth the money. A lot of companies charge a fortune for this tiny little jar of miracle product, but that's not the case this time ladies and gents. There is a whole lot of scrubbin' to do with what's in that bag; since receiving my bag of Mr. Bean I've already had four uses out of it and still have at least half a bag left! That's not even me being  resourceful. My first use I used WAY too much and half of it ended up on the floor of my shower. I follow the directions on the back of the bag. Typically I cover myself head to toe, it's gentle enough for my sensitive facial skin but still does the job of exfoliating my entire bod. Personally, I use Mr. Bean twice a week; more or less depending on what my skins been through. Directions for use: get wet, rub a large handful of scrub in circular massage motions focusing on your problem areas. Leave to dry for 5 minutes and finish with a rinse. Simple enough! The only con I've had with this is the mess it makes. Good thing you apply it in the shower where you can rinse the walls and tub because they weren't kidding when they said you have to get dirty with coffee scrubs! Overall that one thing will never keep me from using my Mr. Bean. I really recommend you snatch this product if you're looking for a great all over exfoliant.

  1. Do you use it as a soap? Or put the Mr Bean product on then wash it off THEN wash yourself with bath soap?

    1. I do not use it as a body wash, strictly just for exfoliating purposes! So I'll apply Mr. Bean fillowing the instructions on the bag then wash after with my usual soap. I found after using without washing there was some coffee residue on my skin which is harmless I just prefer washing after.
