And Now, the 4 Best-Selling Drugstore Face Scrubs on the Internet

Updated 03/29/18

Fact: Face scrubs are a dime a dozen at the drugstore. This is both a good thing, and a bad thing. Good because, who doesn't love picking up a pore-refining exfoliant for $10? But also a little bad, because when it comes time to buy, the amount of choice can be overwhelming. That's where our pals at Rank & Style—a website dedicated to simplifying shopping for beauty addicts—come in. Using a unique algorithm that gathers digital data from all corners of the internet, the team generate lists of top-selling products for an impartial look at what really works. And today, wouldn't you know it, they've dropped all new rankings of the best-selling drugstore scrubs out there. 

From a salicylic acid-packed formula that battles acne, to a product so gentle even sensitive types can get amongst, there's something for everyone. The results even include the apricot-scented exfoliant you probably used in high school, which also happens to be Australia's No.1 face scrub. (No biggie.) Keen to add a few wallet-friendly picks to your next shopping list?
