I’m typically a body scrub buff year-round, but this time of year I like to pay extra attention to those tough, dry areas on my arms and legs that can make a self-tanning adventure go horribly wrong! Whether you’re prepping for self-tanning season, or just want to reveal fresh, soft skin, it’s time to try one of these body scrubs to get the job done!
I have become SUCH a fan of DollyMoo products! This delicious body scrub is made by hand by two sisters (Nicci and Amy), who have a passion for health and wellness, and it’s obvious that they put love into everything they make. No funny stuff here, all you’ll find is: dead sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, dendritic salt, grape seed oil, Vitamin E, organic dried citrus peels, dried oats, and pure citrus oil. This results in a delectably scented, clean-rinsing, skin-smoothing scrub that I cannot get enough of!

This new scrub from Bodycology quickly made it to the top of my list for a few reasons! For one, I love that it’s in a convenient squeeze tube which makes it easy to keep in the shower. Another; it’s a sugar and shea scrub, which means that it doesn’t sting like traditional salt scrubs do, and the shea and soybean oils envelop my skin in silky softness. Plus, the coconut lime fragrance is divine!
I’ve never been let down by this amazing body scrub from Bliss—it’s an old favorite of mine, and will probably be until the end of time! It’s an incredibly creamy exfoliant that gently buffs away dead skin with small granules, but leaves the skin hydrated due to its moist and creamy base. I use this on the troublesome dry spots on my knees and elbows, and I’ve never been let down!
I have to tell the WORLD about this artisanal, hand-crafted bodycare brand from Massachusetts! Created by two teachers who went back to the drawing board until they got it right, their products are both pampering and functional! I’m a huge fan of their almond-scented body scrub, The Rub. This sugar-based scrub is loaded in several skin hydrating essential oils, along with shea butter, aloe, Vitamin E, and bitter almond essential oil. This is a must-have for any almond-fragrance fan!
If traditional body scrubs are a little harsh and rub you the wrong way, you’re in for a treat with this one from Salma Hayek’s line for CVS/pharmacy, NUANCE. Macadamia nut oils and tiny micro-beads gently slough away dead skin to reveal softer, fresh skin. A blend of coconut oil, shea butter, and Vitamin E blankets the skin with moisture to treat your dry skin right!
