Get Smooth for Summer
Who doesn’t want softer skin, especially during the summer? These amazing scrubs will leave your skin noticeably smoother, softer, and healthier. Each one of these favorites gently hydrate your skin ridding it of dirt and tired skin cells.
Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub, $28
This body skin polish has tiny circular scrubbing grains that help to gently exfoliate your skin. Perfect for sensitive skin, the lightly lemon-scented scrub will leave your skin feeling soothed and renewed after every scrub.
Ahava Softening Butter Scrub, $20
This body scrub first starts off as a thick creamy body butter. When you add water, it quickly turns into a moisturizing scrub. Exfoliate in a circular motion, making sure to focus on problem areas like elbows and knees. The soft buttery formula will moisturize your skin leaving it softer than ever before.
The best way to apply this body buff is to scrub on before getting in the shower. Letting the oil soak in will help skin soften, allowing the scrub to really soak deep into the skin. Concentrate on areas that are rough or dry. This scrub is super light and perfect for sensitive and dry skin types.
St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Polish, $50
This St. Tropez Tan Optimizer is a must have for summer, especially if you are using a self-tanner. Prepare your skin for the perfect summer tan using this light, sugary scrub. It easily removes dead skin cells to brighten and prepare your skin for the best self-tan possible (which can be achieved by using the St. Tropez self-tanning mousse)!
Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel, $54
Using this daily face peel will quickly become your new best kept secret. It works quickly to even skin tone, visibly reduce pore size, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. The added green tea extract helps to smooth, balance, and protect skin. This simple two step process will leave your skin feeling amazingly refreshed. Use it year-round!
Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Retexturizer Exfoliating Scrub, $30
This multi-action retexturizing scrub works wonders and contains moisturizers from sweet almond oils, apricot, mango, and Dragon’s Blood (an all natural plant based aid). It feels great on the skin, minimizes pores, fine lines and wrinkles too. After a few uses, your skins texture will feel just like it was 10+ years ago.
This fabulous scrub will leave your skin extra smooth. The gentle exfoliating scrub will carefully remove dirt and oil, leaving your skin acne and blackhead free. It’s a great product for those who are breakout prone. I love the subtle apricot smell (and the price is right too)!
Body Washes We Love
Whether you need a wake-up call in the morning or a soothing bath after work, there is a body wash right for you. Instead of reaching for your AM coffee, try out a citrus-scented wash to perk you up. If you have sensitive skin and are in need of nutrients and hydration, try a creamy or oil-infused wash, sure to soften and revitalize your skin. No matter your budget, you’ll find one that’s perfect for your skin-type. They certainly beat using bar soaps!

4. Lush- Creamed Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie
This body wash is unique as it is more of a cream/moisturizer than a simple shower gel. Made with almond oil which is high in vitamin E, it is especially good for those who have naturally dry skin. Although it’s called an “almond and coconut smoothie”, it is not overpowering at all. Rather, it emits a subtle scent: a mix of vanilla, jasmine and ylang.
