Scrubs are probably one of the most fun ways to take care of your beauty and hygiene. It’s so much fun to know what awesome things are going into the scrub and knowing how it will help your skin. They can also be colorful, and the smooth soft skin you have afterwards just feels nice!
However, there are so many choices out there, and whenever I go on Pinterest or Google a good scrub idea, I find it hard to make a decision. So I thought I’d curate a list of five scrubs that you can try out and see which one you like best. Because small lists of awesome things are pretty cool.
When this one caught my eye, I thought two things. One: that color is pretty awesome. Two: blueberries have antioxidants in them.. that sounds great for my skin!
Created by Dear Crissy, this scrub includes coconut oil which has great moisturizing, cleansing, and anti-aging benefits for skin (you can buy coconut oil online, since that will save you from having to make a store run).
The blueberries have antioxidants in it which fight free radicals (this is something that causes skin aging ), and cancer cells. She also adds lemon extract which is great, especially if you have any scar tissue, as lemon is a natural bleacher and can lighten and even out your skin tone.

I put cocoa powder in a lot of things; oatmeal, cake in a mug, coffee drinks, but I’ve never put it into a skin care product before. Which is why I was immediately drawn to this one.
It seems that coconut oil is one of the main ingredients in a lot of scrubs out there. And it makes sense, unlike other oils, it’s able to firm up in room temperature and make for a nice scrub texture (and it has tons of benefits as well I suppose).
Created by Jody Arsenault, this scrub includes coco powder (which helps to tighten skin, fight aging, and prevent breakouts), almond oil (which helps in moisturizing and lightening skin, and contains Vitamin E which helps with anti-aging and healing), and peppermint (which helps calm and sooth your skin).
