Juara Radiance Enzyme Scrub ($38)
Not only can this product be used as a scrub, but it also doubles as an enzyme mask! Bamboo and jojoba beads exfoliate the skin, while cinnamon and apple enzymes deeply purify pores without stripping the skin. On days you want extra exfoliation, gently apply it in circular motions; then wait five minutes before rinsing off.
Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains ($30)
This product starts out as a fine powder that instantly transforms into a foamy exfoliating cleanser when water is added. Cranberry seeds and rice bran powder lift away dead skin and absorb excess oil. Plus, it contains Echinacea purpurea, a plant known to support natural collagen production.
La Roche-Posay Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub ($18)
Perfect for those with ultra-sensitive skin, this gentle French scrub is soap and alcohol free—which means you won’t get that dry and tight feeling after using.
Now that you’re schooled on scrubs, here are some cleansers that your sensitive skin will love.
