STENDERS ROSE SALT SCRUB
That was how I felt after using this salt scrub. In just under two weeks, I noticed it made a huge difference to my dry skin.
That probably had a lot to do with the shea butter, sweet almond and jojoba oil in the scrub, which the manufacturers say will nourish and soften your skin.
The polished salt crystals also help ensure a gentle peeling effect, removing dirt and unclogging pores.
Open the jar to a sweet floral scent from the rose petals in the formula.
Available at Stenders in Plaza Singapura.
BOTTEGA VERDE RED GRAPE BODY EXFOLIANT
I never knew how important scrubs were for smooth skin.
This scrub uses its powdery grape seed to effectively remove dead cells and toxins, giving your skin a more radiant and even tone.
Apply moisturiser to complete the experience.
Available at Bottega Verde at Suntec City Mall.
FRESH BROWN SUGAR BODY POLISH
Most DIY body scrubs involve brown sugar.
And this Brown Sugar Body Polish has plenty of that, and moisturising oils.
The one thing I didn't like about this scrub was how difficult it was to clean off the oil.
It took two washes before my skin felt normal and not as oily.
This scrub has a sweet lemon scent that stays on your skin for several hours.
I highly recommend this product, especially if you have really dry skin.
In just one use, it will significantly improve the condition of your skin.
Available at Sephora.

Salt or sugar body scrub?
This video will teach you how to make both. The YouTube user demonstrates how she makes both scrubs with two simple recipes.
Put a cup of sugar and half a cup of sweet almond oil into a mixing bowl. Stir thoroughly. To give some scent to the mixture, she adds about 10 drops of orange essential oil.
For the salt body scrub, she mixes a cup of Epsom salt, half a cup of grape seed oil andabout 10 drops of lavender essential oil.
Just like that, you have the best of both worlds that will last you at least a month.
HOW TO UTILISE EXFOLIATING PRODUCTS AND BODY SCRUBS EFFICIENTLY

Having a body scrub is one thing but knowing how to use it is another.
If you think a loofah is the way to go, you’re wrong.
According to this youtube user, a loofah does nothing more than work up a good lather.
If you want efficient exfoliation, you will need textured exfoliating gloves — which rid your body of accumulated dead skin cells.
Using these gloves, you don’t have to scrub as the textured surface is enough to exfoliate your skin.
