The Best Skin Exfoliators

On my search to find the best exfoliator i can across two fab ones! Personally I find it hard to come across a good exfoliator that actually does what it’s supposed to do. Of course using a brush works great but I feel it can be very harsh on the skin – and using gels or lotions doesn’t always scrub the skin well enough.

I tried Lula Bloom Blooming Radiant Shower Exfoliator and Naturals Coconut and Shea Butter Body Polish. Both were actually really great – I am going to sum up which one is best:

Lula Bloom Blooming Radiant Shower Exfoliator smells beautiful, very fresh and tropical like. The texture is a thick gel, it has very small grains of almond shell which do make the skin feel slightly softer but I feel if it had lots more grains it would work a treat. Lula Bloom also includes Rice Bran oil which is a powerful antioxidant which has apparently been used as a popular beauty treatment in Japan for years. The great thing about this is it comes in a huge 500ml bottle for only £3.50! Which is a massive bargain for what you get.

Naturals Coconut and Shea Butter Body Polish is my favorite out of the two. The bottle is packed full of coconut shell grains which really exfoliate the skin – my skin felt so soft! The scent reminds me exactly of sun cream – very coco-nutty and lovely. It has a lotion/creamy texture which helps to moisturize the skin. This one comes in a 200ml bottle at £2.19 – well worth it and probably one of the best exfoliants I have used to date!

I would highly recommend both, but if you are looking for a more vigorous exfoliator (that isn’t painful!) then Naturals Coconut and Shea butter polish is fabulous.

Both can be bought from or instore.

What exfoliators do you recommend?


  1. awesome i will have to check these out!

    lots of love

  2. These look so good! I love using ''philosophy micro exfoliating scrub'' It works wonders and the grainy bits are small and soft. I really hope they ship to the states because I want to try these out as well! Thank you for the review Imogen! :)


  3. Great blog post! I'll look into the products =] I've been searching for good exfoliator but haven't found any that does anything.

  4. was gonna get some of the lula products, but they sold out on line and apparently they've been discontinued, grrrr

  5. These products sound nice, but it is soooooo easy to make your own fantastic scrub, so why spend money???

  6. Do you know if you can get Lula Bloom in the U.S.? I have looked online but can't find anywhere to buy it!!! :(

  7. I always use St Ives Apricot Scrub and swear by it, but I use St Tropez's Body Polish on my body before tanning x
