You can get these scrubs in a variety of scents, which are delicate and not overwhelming. At $28, this scrub is not cheap, but it is a favorite of models, actresses and It Girls and seems to make every list I ever read about someone's "Must Have Product." This scrub is gentle enough for the face, leaves skin super soft and won't make a mess of your shower.
One of the reasons I love this product is because of the fun factor. These scrubs are so unique, they make amazing gifts for teens and adults. Also, I believe in supporting small businesses and I love the concept behind the company, "to do simple things exceedingly well."
Extra tip: Smooth on moisturizer after your bath when skin is still damp, it keeps the moisture in.
A completely unique body scrub, it contains teeny granules that exfoliate skin without tearing (a tendency of cheaper salt scrubs). This is a spa-quality scrub at a spa prices ($62 for a large tub). The good news is you don't need a lot of it to exfoliate the entire body.
This scrub won't tear at skin and leaves skin feeling supple and soft. Only downside is the price and the fact that it leaves the bathtub a mess (think fine, coffee grounds).
Extra tip: Make your own milk bath Don't want to splurge? Make your own milk bath by pouring 3 cups pure buttermilk and 3 tablespoons of honey in the tub. Stir it up and enjoy.
Perhaps the most fun bath product ever (even more fun that bubble baths, we think), bath bombs fizz like Alka Seltzer in the water and when they're done, you're left to soak in nourishing bliss. There are no better bath bombs than LUSH. They have a variety of fragrances and ingredients. Check them out and pick your favorite. That said, many companies are making wonderful bath bombs. Buy them from Amazon.com.

My friend Vanessa is a bath addict. She loves to luxuriate in the tub and she is a bit of a bath product hoarder. She tries so many products, she moved to the suburbs from the city in order to store the stuff. Well, not really, but kinda. Anyway, of all the bath scrubs she's tried, she tells me this Molton Brown scrub is her current favorite. It's tingly and delicious and really does warm one all over.

What did I think? 5 STARS! Loved it. Still use it. Scoop out a bit of this scrub and rub it in circular motions on your arms and legs and see how blissed out it makes you.
