Nope, you don't have to throw $60 at a boutique body scrub to step out of the shower with hydrated, exfoliated, ultra-soft skin, and we're proving it with this roundup of affordable scrubs that won't cost you more than $15 (and in many cases, more than $5). From Moroccan rose to foaming charcoal, we've covered all the bases to ensure there's something for everyone. It all just goes to show that you can have your luxurious shower experience and a happy bank account, too.
This UK brand is on a mission to stop "boring beauty regimes across the nation," and they've officially infiltrated the USA by way of Ulta. Anatomicals offers a couple different body scrub options, including this one and another called "Glow Thanks to Joe Coffee Scrub," each for $8 a pop. This one uses pumice to gently buff away dead skin cells, and boasts a delicious melon scent.
Close your eyes while in the shower with this Bath & Body Works scrub and you'll be instantly transported to the dreamy island of Tahiti via scents of coconut water, Tahitian vanilla musk, kiwi blossom and mandarin. In addition to smelling just like a luxurious beach vacation, it also contains real Polynesian white sand and sea salt, which leave skin baby soft.
If you want a body scrub that leaves skin impossibly smooth, opt for C. Booth's Charcoal Foaming Dry Body Polish (a 2017 TotalBeauty Award winner). In the jar, it feels like finely ground sand, thanks to the finely milled pumice, but once it's activated with water it foams and lathers. It's also packed with argan oil, coconut oil and shea butter extract, to keep skin hydrated and silky-soft.
Freeman is a beloved beauty brand for a reason. They consistently deliver quality results without breaking the bank, and their Pomegranate Sugar Scrub is no exception. The sugar makes this a little more of an aggressive scrub -- so it's perfect for those extra dry areas like your elbows, knees and feet -- and the fruity pomegranate scent will definitely wake you up in the morning.
