Can I ask if you use a body scrub, which one do you use??

That Garnier sugar scrub in a yellow tube. It beats everything else. I got some £35 Elemis scrub from a spa in a weak moment and it isn't a patch on the Garnier one.

Frank coffee scrub £11.95 makes a mess, smells lovely and leaves your skin gorgeous and soft.

Disclaimer, no I don't work for Frank, no this isn't sponsored, yes I bought my own scrub off the tinterweb grin

it's funny you say that Lazysusan, because the Frank scrubs did do the rounds with bloggers a few months ago. smile It does sound good though I have to admit.

I think it depends what kind of scrub you like. I like quite rough scrubs, but not ones that leave any kind of oily residue behind. Rituals scrubs are great, but do leave an oily film on your body which I suspect is great if you like that feeling. I can only use them on my legs because of this though.

St ives is probably my favourite body scrub. Nice and scrubby and leave me feeling very soft and clean. I'll always go back to this one. www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IQEA5Y8/ref=sr_ph?ie=UTF8&qid=1456071482&sr=1&keywords=st+ives+scrub

The body shop also has some good ones, but I find them very hit and miss. I love the peppermint one for feet and also the peach body one, but tried their poppy one recently and thought it was horrible. The bits in the scrub were way too big to do anything useful and it left a film behind on my body which was uncomfortble and itchy. It smelt way too strong as well.

The soap and glory breakfast scrub is also a favourite of mine, but to be honest I think that's because of the scent. It's very "foody" almost like cookies and you have to be in the right mood for it I think.

I've also had success in the past with making my own. I think I used brown sugar, coffee, avocado oil (or any other moisturising oil) and cardamom then mixed it all in a big jar.

Soap and glory - breakfast one. Smells like maple pancakes and is very scrubby. I can't bear the barely there gentle ones!

Just came to recommend the Garnier sugar scrub mentioned above - I've tried loads of others but always go back to it, and you can usually find it half price.

How do body scrubs compare with a massage sponge in terms of effectiveness?

I'm always worried about clogging the drains up with scrubs.

I use the St Ives face scrub for sensitive skin as a body scrub.
