This $15 Body Scrub Sloughs Off All My Dead Skin and Leaves Me Feeling Baby-Soft

Until recently, I didn’t give body care so much as a second thought. While showering, I scrubbed myself with whatever bar soaps happened to be lying around the bathroom, and I didn’t even bother to moisturize or exfoliate (horrifying, I know). But when an extreme California heat wave left my skin feeling dry and flaky, I realized it was time to start treating my body care with the same dedication as my skincare. Flash forward to the present, and I feel like a woman reborn.

The biggest game-changer was the Soap & Glory Scrub For Joy Body Polish, which has softened, hydrated, and brightened my long-suffering skin. The scrub’s formula contains vitamin C for brightening, vitamin E for nourishing and moisturizing, and walnut shell powder for exfoliating. With a gritty texture, the shower scrub removes dead patches of skin. It leaves my skin feeling baby soft and smelling like a tropical yoga retreat, which is everything and more I could ask for from a body scrub.

The Soap & Glory Scrub For Joy Body Polish is infused with mood-boosting notes of grapefruit and rhubarb, and I get compliments every time the citrus- and fruit-inspired fragrance wafts off my skin. Showers now double as self-care for me, and whenever I pop open this body scrub, its delicious scent lifts my spirits. I’m not alone in feeling this way: The scrub has an average rating of 4.8 from Ulta customers, and reviewers describe the body polish’s scent as “uplifting,” “fresh,” “feminine,” and “energizing.”

In addition to the $15 price tag, my favorite part about the Soap & Glory Scrub For Joy Body Polish is that it’s gentle yet effective on my dry, sensitive skin. Some body scrubs can be excessively harsh, making me feel like I’m rubbing my skin with sandpaper. But the Soap & Glory version is non-irritating and non-drying, with a consistency that one customer compares to a “slightly sticky jam.”

I use a generous handful of Soap & Glory’s body scrub almost every time I step into the shower, following it up with the brand’s All the Right Smoothes In-Shower Moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration. This combination has my skin not only feeling the softest and smoothest it’s ever been, but also smelling amazing.

“I’m 65, and at my age, my skin has gotten dry and dull-looking,” one shopper wrote. “This body scrub is the best thing that I’ve used. My skin is so soft, and it definitely helped me feel more vibrant.”

Another said, “this body scrub has a beautiful feminine scent that’s not overpowering. You can definitely smell the pop of grapefruit, which I personally love. I use this along with a loofah to exfoliate before spray tans and tanning beds for more even, smooth results.”

While many customers are using the body scrub to elevate their showers, a third wrote, “this is a must-have for your self-care bath kit. I use it to exfoliate my legs before shaving to remove dead skin, and it helps me get a closer shave without nicks…When I run a small amount under the faucet, it bubbles into an awesome bubble bath.”

Heading into the dry, chilly winter months, it’s important to give your skin a little extra TLC. Add the Soap & Glory Scrub For Joy Body Polish to your next shower or bath for sensational skin—you deserve it.
