There's a process of transformation that occurs when you get a handful of body scrub onto your skin. It's the medicine that all skin needs whether its dry, lacking radiance or in need of some serious smoothing. Plus there's instant gratification to be had. You can jump out of the shower after a scrub with polished skin that's usually only achieved after a weekend spa trip. 

We've gone through our bathroom shelves and found the best body scrubs for all of your silky-skin requirements.
