It’s been a long week, your body is calling for some much-needed TLC and it’s time to give your skin a boost with a nice, soothing body scrub. Exfoliating should always be in your routine. Why? The lack of exfoliating can lead to dull, flaky and/or irritated skin. A weekly scrub means removing all the dead skin cells and revealing soft, smoothing skin. (And who doesn’t want that?) So, whether you’re dealing with dryness, dullness or bumps, we found 19 of the best body scrubs for glowing skin all year long.

1. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub
With over 18,000 5-star reviews, it’s no surprise that this body scrub is a fan-favorite. The creamy formula removes any dead skin cells and leaves skin silky smooth. Plus, the macadamia and rice milk scent is enough to make it a staple in our daily routine.
2. Nécessaire The Body Exfoliator
Best for Sensitive Skin
Some scrubs may feel harsh and irritating to sensitive skin. This $30 pick has gentle ingredients (like glycolic acid and salicylic acid) that softens and soothes your body. It’s also infused with bamboo charcoal and essential oils for added benefits.
3. Rituals The Ritual Of Karma Body Scrub
Scent can be very important and enhance the overall body care experience. The product’s blend (white tea, holy lotus, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil) nourishes and moisturizes while leaving a very sweet scent behind.
6. First Aid Beauty Kp Bump Eraser Body Scrub
Best for Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis pilaris can result in bumps, dry patches or rough skin. This soothing product makes it easier to treat irritated areas with its glycolic and lactic acid combo.
7. Tree Hut Moroccan Rose Shea Sugar Scrub
You can’t scroll through TikTok without seeing this Internet gem (and we definitely understand the hype). Its core ingredients—sugar, shea butter and natural oils (morrocan argan, avocado and rosehip)—exfoliates, hydrates and softens skin.
9. Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub
Best Coffee Scrub
We love a good salt or sugar scrub, but have you considered coffee grounds? The natural ingredient has a ton of skincare benefits for soft, even skin. This one is a great choice for scars, breakouts or dull skin.
11. Ouai Scalp & Body Scrub
Forget grabbing a bunch of products to give yourself the at-home treatment you deserve. This 2-in-1 cleanses and exfoliates your body from head to toe. Use a dollop on your scalp to remove build up and apply some directly onto your skin for maximum moisture everywhere.
14. Sunday Riley Charcoal Smoothie Jelly Body Scrub
This body scrub challenges the typical sugar (or salt) formulas for an even deeper clean. Activated charcoal, coconut water and manuka honey work together to treat bumps, dryness and irritation.
19. Softsoap Coconut Butter Scrub
Don’t sleep on drugstore exfoliators. This one has two of our go-to ingredients: jojoba butter and crushed coconut to condition and cleanse your skin. And we can’t get enough of the $6 price tag which is the perfect excuse to snag one (or two) for your cart.
