We love this brilliant summer high street buy.
With sea salt flakes, quenching aloe vera and fresh-scented cucumber water, it's gritty enough to get real purchase on your skin, but not drying, and leaves your limbs polished, glowing and smooth.
Of all the luxe-y, pampering body scrubs out there, has got to be one of our favourites.
Golden-hued and marmalade-scented, this delicious scrub is the perfect pre-summer body buffer. Follow with a nourishing body lotion or oil for really silky skin.
This oily, heavy-duty number is one of the best of the new bunch. Spend time firmly working it in, then rinse or soak it off.
A brilliant addition to any beach-prep regime.
Hand-blended in the Cotswolds, all Ila products are organic and incorporate natural plant and mineral ingredients.
Designed to restore and rebalance the immune system, this oily scrub is a real pamper product: run a warm (not hot) bath, rub this smoothing buffer all over dry skin, then get in and lie back.
It's so lovely, we gave it an eco beauty award.
If oily scrubs aren’t your thing, try this gentle buffing cream from Kiehl’s instead.
It’s still moisturising, but rather than making you (and your shower) slick with oil, it rinses clean, leaving nothing behind but softness.
Great for using before fake tan, as oil can create streaks and patchiness.
We simply love the way smells – a warm citrus-and-ginger scent that’s instantly comforting, especially on dull, grey days.
This thick salt-in-oil scrub is satisfyingly grainy without scratching and it moisturises our skin as it sloughs away dead cells.
Top tip: Use a dab on dry hands, rub them together for one minute and rinse for a 60-second manicure.
Unlike a lot of other oil-based body buffers, r sticks brilliantly to damp skin as you work it in (use small circular motions for best effect).
It contains shea butter to nourish dry skin and an aromatic blend of rosemary, mint and geranium essential oils to boost circulation and leave your skin (and your bathroom) deliciously spa-scented.
