Kiehl’s Gentle Exfoliating Coriander Body Scrub

More coriander than baby lotion, this is a coarse, creamy scrub. It can leave your skin red so unless you live in the wild and wash your face with stinging nettles your skin probably isn't tough enough to handle it.

Nickel Super Clean Body Scrub

BEST IN TEST
Endearingly quirky packaging, though the screw-top lid is a pain in the shower. The scrub has an aquatic scent and tingles a bit, but leaves your skin smooth and soft.

Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Exfoliating Body Wash

A fragrance-free, striking blue gel. The scrub itself has quite a sugary texture. It leaves the skin supple with no tightness, so it’s a good one for regular use.

Molton Brown Active Cassia Bodywash and Scrub

A clear gel with brown scrubbing beads and a spicy, woody scent. However, it doesn’t leave skin as smooth as the texture might suggest.
