I’ve just tried Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Scrub – it’s out and out the best body exfoliator I’ve used in a very long time. A combination of sugar and salt grains are effective enough to give skin a thorough sloughing (none of those silly ‘exfoliating beads’ that do absolutely nothing), and the avocado, coconut and passionfruit oils leave a gorgeous, softening sheen. Even when my skin is dried off, I can still feel the satiny oil – it’s not sticky – that has made my skin supple and ultra-ultra soft. The scrub has a fragrance of slightly herby limes – I don’t love it, but it’s nothing to scare the horses. It’s £24.47 for a large (450g) tub, but be warned, the generous looking tub is only two thirds full when you open it!

Herby limes? It would have to be good at £25 if it smells like a thai stir-fry.
I heard good reports of a Soap & Glory body scrub – have you tried any of their stuff? I quite like the packaging but I’m pretty shallow.
The Soap and Glory Body Scrub is great (the one in the pink container). They have one in the US that comes in a clear container with a blue top that’s just average, if a bit sub-par. Too much goop to grain ratio and just doesn’t scrub you up properly. I would LOVE to try to the Aveda stuff. I’m on a huge tropical beauty kick right now as it’s T minus 6 days before lift off to the South Pacific and the exotic beauty treats (I will ship a box of Monoi Oil back if I can) therein lay.
Good tip on how full the tub is too… REN’s new Rose Moroccan Otto Sugar Body Polish (er, I think that’s the name) is full up to the top and scrumptous.
