We’ll look for any excuse to pamper ourselves, especially if it involves using luxurious products that we don’t necessarily need, but love using anyway. Plus, everyone deserves and needs a self-care session anyway right? Yes, it’s understood that not everyone defines self-care in the same way. For instance, it could involve something as small as stepping away from your desk and leaving texts unanswered. For some, it may be regular therapy sessions. But for beauty junkies, it usually includes plenty of face masks, a weekly bubble bath and some of the best body scrubs on deck.
Unlike pro-level facials and Swedish massages, body scrubs are one of the few spa essentials you can actually bring home and get the same results. Because while physical face exfoliants are generally frowned upon, scrubs for the body are a welcome reprieve from the chapped, dry, irritated skin we often experience this time of year. What’s even better is that they’re hardly one size fits all and quality isn’t sacrificed for a lower price point. Ahead are some of the best, top-rated options for every budget.
