Colder weather means drier skin, but we discovered the best sugar scrubs that smell amazing and feel even better!
Now that winter is right around the corner, the days of scaly skin and dull complexions will inevitably make their return. Truthfully, the thought alone is sort of depressing, so we decided to be proactive about this potential problem. And the only way we could be totally sure we were giving you the best skin-quenching recommendations was to try out the season’s hottest products ourselves.
Hence, our body scrub experiment began! We’ve been on the prowl for the best exfoliators that slough away dead skin while also delivering a hefty dose of moisture, and we found some real winners. During our research we discovered a few whipped body scrubs that were a total game-changer, along with irresistibly scented scrubs that we would happily slather on daily.
Check out three of our favorite scrubs this season, and find out what sets each one apart from the competition:
LALICIOUS Extraordinary Whipped Sugar Scrub
The LALICIOUS was the first whipped scrub we’ve ever tested and let’s just say, we were totally blown away. The light, airy texture feels as refreshing as it smells, and it makes application mess-free without the excess oil of typical scrubs. Packed with cold-pressed coconut and sweet almond oils, and made with only the most high quality natural ingredients, this scrub will make you glow despite the frightful weather outside. Try the Limited Edition LALICIOUS Extraordinary Whipped Peppermint Sugar Scrub this season, the scent is absolutely perfect for the holidays! Try it for yourself at lalicious.com.
Erin Condren Island Fleur Body Scrub
This divinely-scented scrub was inspired by the scents of the salty Bora Bora beaches, and when you lather it on, you feel truly transported. We loved that this natural scrub was non-greasy like it’s whipped predecessor, but the amazing scent was absolutely its stand-out quality. Gardenia, tuberose and white florals are balanced by ginger and fresh greens, capturing the magically relaxing air of the warm Pacific Island. Try it for yourself at erincondren.com.
Rituals Laughing Buddha Good Luck Scrub
This luxurious scrub is formulated with organic sugar and transformative softening oils that deliver a dose of moisture to even the most parched skin. Not only does it nourish and revitalize any dry areas, but it also sloughs off dead skin that dulls your complexion. This scrub also serves as a lovely bathroom accessory thanks to its sleek design, and the sweet orange and cedar wood scent is nothing short of therapeutic. Try it for yourself at rituals.com.
