My Top 10 Body Scrubs

Body scrubs are some of my favorite beauty items to try out. I get captivated by the amazing scents and love the little sugar crystals that slough away skin cells.
I always feel so much better when I add this step to my shower routine. Every time I step out of the shower I feel hydrated and have the softest skin. I tend to get really dry (especially my elbows, knees and heels). So, I end up using body scrubs all year round. Here are some of my favorites:

Under $50:

1. Lalicious Sugar Kiss Scrub

This whipped sugar scrub smells like cupcakes!! It has pure sugar crystals to slough away dry skin cells. Formulated with cold pressed coconut and sweet almond oils that nourish and deeply moisturize, leaving your skin super soft. It comes in 6 scents…I also love the brown sugar vanilla and the sugar coconut. Sugar Kiss is a blend of citrus, rose and vanilla. If you like a sweeter fragrance, this one is for you! This scrub is sulfate, paraben, cruelty free and more.

2. Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Body Polish

This 100% natural body polish gently exfoliates and moisturizes your skin with the most amazing smell!! It isn’t an overpowering scent of coconut, but just enough. It leaves your skin super soft. This scrub is sulfate free, cruelty free, paraben free and more.

3. True Botanicals Pure Radiance Sugar Scrub

This hydrating body scrub delivers a luxurious and highly effective exfoliation without disrupting your skin barrier. It blends organic sugar, sandalwood, rich camelia, jojoba oils and clay to scrub away dead skin cells, leaving you with super soft skin. The amazing scent combines orange, cedarwood and sandalwood. This scrub is sulfate free, paraben free, cruelty free and vegan.

4. Herbivore Botanicals Amethyst Exfoliating Body Polish

Not only does this body polish smell so good, but it is the most gorgeous shade of purple!! It combines crushed amethyst with magnesium rich salt, ultra hydrating coconut oil and night blooming jasmine to make your skin feel moisturized and amazing. It is one of my very favorites and because of the beautiful color, clean properties and I love that it actually does polish your skin! Perfect to give as a gift as well. Sulfate, paraben, cruelty free and more. Also free of synthetic ingredients, animal byproducts and fillers.

5. OSEA Salts of the Earth Body Scrub

Of all the scrubs in my list, I may like this scent the most (it’s tough to pick though!). The scent is heavenly and like a personal spa in your home shower. This is an anti aging mineral body scrub that hydrates and exfoliates the skin. It sloughs away roughness with a blend of Dead Sea, Bolivian Rose, and Himilayan pink salts. Hydrating shea butter leaves skin silky smooth and babassu and avocado oils plump and firm the skin. Paraben free, sulfate free and silicone free.

6. Clarins Exfoliating Body Scrub for Smooth Skin

This is the most gentle of all the scrubs listed. It still exfoliates well, but if you have more sensitive skin and need a more gentle scrub, give this one a try. Mimosa and shea extracts soothe and soften, coconut extract tones, and licorice extract helps comfort and protect sensitive skin. It has a nice refreshing delicate scent and is so gentle that you could try it as a face exfoliant. Paraben free, sulfate free and silicone free.

7. Nécessaire The Body Exfoliator

This body scrub combines 2 methods of exfoliation…chemical and physical. A gentle AHA/BHA trio of glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids help remove dead skin cells, while pumice and bamboo charcoal soften skin without irritation. I have the unscented variety, but it does come in Eucalyptus, Bergamot and Sandalwood. Free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic dyes and more.

8. Joe Malone Vitamin E Body Treatment Scrub

I love love love this scrub!! If it’s Joe Malone, you know the scent is going to be amazing and this doesn’t disappoint. This is a revitalizing body treatment scrub that sloughs away dead surface skin cells to give you a youthful glow. This contains Vitamin E which is known for its restorative properties and helps fortify your skin against the damaging effects of the environment. This scrub of course comes in their signature box ties with a ribbon. Beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.

9. Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish

This scrub is the one currently in my shower and it smells like heaven in a jar! It is an award winning natural sugar scrub that gently buffs dry skin while delivering 24 hour moisture. The brown sugar crystals exfoliate your skin to silky softness while the precious oils nourish. This makes my skin feel so soft, buffed and moisturized. It has a high oil content, so be careful of slippery shower surfaces! This is one of my very favorite scrubs.

10. Omorovicza Gold Sugar Scrub

I absolutely love this gold sugar scrub! It has small particles of gold cane sugar that gently eliminate dead skin cells leaving your skin incredibly soft and radiant. A little goes a long way with this product. This scrub is gentle, yet effective leaving your skin silky smooth. The scent is fabulous and you feel luxurious after each use!


This 2 pack of gloves is a great way to cleanse, exfoliate and smooth away dead skin cells. Just apply your favorite body wash and let the gloves do the work! I’m not including this in my top 10 because it isn’t a body scrub, but it sure does a great job when you don’t have your favorite exfoliator in tow! Makes this a great add on in your travel bag.
