The Body Exfoliator Eucalyptus, £30 | Nécessaire

Best For: Dual Exfoliation

Nécessaire’s exfoliator is a bestseller. The star of the show – eucalyptus – is perfect for sensitive, hypoallergenic skin, while a potent blend of bamboo charcoal, as well as glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids, works to minimise flakiness and smooth dry skin. A mix of both physical and chemical exfoliators, it’s a bit of an investment, but the results are worth it.

Exfoliating Crush Scrub, £32 | Kopari

Best For: Soothing

Kopari is known for using skin-friendly natural ingredients in its bodycare range. This scrub is formulated with a sumptuous blend of brown sugar and fine Tahitian coconut shell and enhanced with the natural soothing properties of aloe vera. The coarse texture is surprisingly gentle on sensitive skin, and promises to reveal softer, smoother limbs once it’s rinsed away.

Charcoal Smoothie Jelly Body Scrub, £32 | Sunday Riley

Best For: Detoxifying

This supercharged blend of salicylic and lactic acid, along with natural exfoliating powders, gently buffs away dead skin to smooth uneven skin texture. Meanwhile, activated charcoal draws out impurities and detoxifies pores, while manuka, coconut water and avocado oil replenish the skin with silky moisture.

Brown Sugar Body Polish Exfoliator, £35 | Fresh

Best For: Nourishing

Dubbed a spa-in-a-jar, this award-winning product uses large brown-sugar crystals which, when massaged into skin, act as a humectant to seal in moisture and keep skin feeling plumper for longer. In addition, ginseng root and citrus oil lift the senses, while evening primrose, sweet almond and jojoba oils soften and smooth.

Exfoliating Body Scrub, £25 | Clarins

Best For: Conditioning 

It’s been around for years, but this scrub is still a brand bestseller to this day. Dispensed as a thick cream, the treatment includes natural bamboo powders and a hint of ginger. Melting into skin on contact with water, it reveals silky soft skin once it’s washed off. Make sure you really massage it in to stimulate cell turnover and blood circulation to restore firmness.

Soul Providers Dry Oil Sugar Scrub, £12 | Beauty Pie

Best For: Brightening

A luxuriously thick scrub containing lemongrass and black pepper, this almost marmalade-like formula doesn’t disappoint. Apply it to wet skin or work in a thick layer to dry skin before washing it off in the shower. As the scrub melts away, you’ll find it leaves behind a layer of nourishing oils, including evening primrose, apricot, Indian gooseberry and holy basil, meaning you can skip the moisturiser afterwards.

Original Coffee Scrub, £12.95 | Frank Body

Best For: Sensitive, Damaged Skin

A blend of gritty sea salt and Robusta coffee grinds, Frank Body’s OG scrub gently exfoliates dead skin to leave behind glowing, healthy-looking limbs. It’s also 100% natural and vegan, while vitamin E and antioxidant rich oils promise to minimise the appearance of scars, cellulite and stretch marks.

Rêve de Miel Body Scrub, £21 | Nuxe

Best For: Its Texture

This two-in-one product combines the exfoliating powers of sugar crystals with honey, sunflower and argan oils to slough away dead skin cells. Its jam-like, thicker consistency is a treat for dry skin types – and if the nourishing benefits weren’t enough, the scent is also highly addictive.

Bum Bum Body Scrub, £32.35 | Sol De Janeiro

Best For: Its Scent

Anyone who already owns the body cream will know the power of Sol De Janeiro products. Infused with the brand’s signature summer scent, this scrub lifts away dead skin and smooths out crepiness with the help of Amazonian guarana seeds. Skin will feel noticeably firmer, while a mix of acai and cupuacu butters delivers long-lasting moisture.
