Beauty Beat. Pamper Your Body Out of Hibernation with These Body Scrubs

March 18, 2008 • Beauty

It has been a long winter and I have had a particularly bad week. Trying to move while under construction is wearing me out! Not to mention, every bone in my body aches and my pores feel like they are clogged with drywall dust! I need a vacation! However, a vaca (or breaky-break) is not in the cards for me right now. So I have decided to escape to my favorite spa….my bathroom. Truth be told, I am a total product whore. Especially when it comes to anything that makes my skin smooth and glow. I’m all about scrubs, exfoliators and lotions at the moment.

Below you will find the best of the best. I did not pick any salt scrubs as they irritate the hell out of my skin. Have a razor nic…you might as well call the paramedics when the salt hits! I prefer sugar…after all it makes you sweeter.


Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish $62.50

This is my absolute favorite and has been for years! My friend Diana turned me on to it when she exclaimed it made her skin as smooth as a ‘baby’s ass.’ Well that sold me! This gentle moisturizing scrub treatment for the body rocks like no other.


Juice Beauty Green Apple Body Peel $49

This fruit acid (of organic apple, lemon, grape juices and raw cane sugar) exfoliating peel is for the entire body. You will glow from head-to-toe. Oh, and it smells better than a V8!


Bliss Super Slough Scrub $34

No, it doesn’t say super sloth! However, even if you are you still need serious smoothing action, right? Loads of jojoba scrub beads in a hyper-hydrating washing gel get rid of the top layer of drab dead skin cells.


Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads $36

If you are searching for a gentle, non-abrasive scrub this product is for you! It contains soft, ultra-fine jojoba beads and botanical nutrients that works for all skin types in two ways. First, they help exfoliate dead surface skin cells. Then, the jojoba beads help open clogged pores and rids you of any blackheads and whiteheads.


Benefit Wonderbod Bum Deal $24

No need to get cheeky…this really is for the bum and all your other bits and pieces. Its’ red currant scent is intoxicating and your bod will be energized and glowing.


 Frederic Fekkai Polishing Moisture Scrub $28.50

We love Fekkai for hair, so why not for the body? This luxurious moisturizing and exfoliating body scrub is enriched with pure shea butter, crushed apricot seeds and jojoba wax to polish and improve texture.


L’Occitane Crushed-Grape Polish $26

Squash dull skin like a grape with this amazing skin polish! Enriched with organic grape juice from Provence (revitalizing), fine particles of grape seed and walnut shell (naturally exfoliating) and grape seed oil (nourishing), they work together to gently slough away dead cells, stimulate microcirculation, and help to eliminate cellular waste.


Benefit Wonderbod Body Mitt $14

Don’t let the price fool you…this dual-action shower mitt does wonders for your wonderbod! The soft, terry side is perfect for daily cleansing, and the loofah side is like a two-minute workout for your skin prepping it for treatment or moisturizing products.

    my problem with sugar scrubs is that i’m too tempted to eat them! the l’occitane grape scrub looks good too.

  2. Good point! The lemon ones always get me ;). I’m a sweet/sour girl. Salt scrubs are just too painful for words.
