We love a rich, moisturizing body scrub. Unfortunately, exfoliating in the shower can take circus-like stability to avoid slipping on the layer of oil that many body scrubs leave all over the tub. That's why an excellent scrub must have great balance, too: the right ratio of skin-sloughing properties to moisturizing elements, and an amazing fragrance that is energizing, yet relaxing enough to make you feel like you've stepped into a luxury spa. Sound like a tall order? That's why only 17 body scrubs made the cut. Click through to see which reader-reviewed products stand up to the challenge.

Best Body Scrub No. 16: Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sugar Scrub, $16.50
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.8*

Why it's great: Reviewers report they are "blown away" by this scrub. They like that the product is oil-based because it leaves "skin soft and shimmery," while the grains of sugar buff away dry skin to "make you glow." One reader says the "texture is gritty enough to remove all of the dead skin gently," but still "luxurious" feeling, making it "must-have" product.

Best Body Scrub No. 15: 100% Pure Body Scrub, $36
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.8*

Why it's great: This scrub makes the list because it's "organic and free of chemicals" — which makes it a great choice for exfoliating sensitive skin. Because the scrub is sugar-based, it doesn't sting like some salt-based scrubs do, according to readers. It also has enough oil in it to moisturize skin, but "not so much that your shower becomes an oil slick," says one user. It lives up to its promises and "leaves your skin so hydrated and soft that it's addictive," says a reviewer.

Why it's great: "This stuff is amazing," raves one fan. "The scent is light, but just the right amount." Another user notes that the body scrub works well for her kerastosis pilaris, since it "has a nice amount of scrub to it," though not so much that it aggravates sensitive skin.
