All you have to do is just translate all the description of a face scrub to the body. In that regard, a body scrub can be explained as a moisturizer and exfoliator.

2. Majestic Pure Brown Sugar

2. Majestic Pure Brown Sugar
If you're wondering there's something going on—then you're right on that. The second product on the list is made by the same manufacturer as the first item on the list and as usual for the cosmetics company, this item is no less impressive. The Majestic Pure Brown Sugar Scrub lasts for 24 hours upon application, is made from real sugar, removes dead skin cells, and many others.

Benefits of Using Body Scrubs

If you read through the items (body scrubs above), you’ll notice that benefits and advantage of using a body scrub are scattered throughout all the context above. On that front, this section is to treat (in-depth) all the benefits we mentioned so you’ll (a potential user) be to distinguish between what you’ll be getting and what you’ll not be getting.

Rejuvenation

It’s a cliche (we know it also), but body scrubs are primarily used to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. When you (a user) use a body scrub like any of the ones we mentioned above, you’re essentially making your skin fresher or might we say, younger. Under that layer of dead skin is new skin that’s been waiting and biding its time to shine. But alas, that process takes some time. Luckily, like we hinted above, a competent body scrub will speed up the process and you’ll be left with skin that’s supple, young, and soft.

Moisturizing

Any competent body scrub will moisturize your skin (regardless of its degree of work). And as we’ve also cut the chase short for you, all you have to do is pick one here that you prefer. Nonetheless, let’s move back to the moisturizing capabilities of a body scrub. A moisturizer will rejuvenate your skin, soften, and make it smoother while at the same time hydrating it and maintaining your skin’s moisture level. Alone, this would have been overlooked, but together with the above makes a body scrub one of the best cosmetics items you can invest in. Also, using a body scrub as a moisturizer makes any other product you use more effective.

Boosts Results

A body scrub removes dead skin cells which naturally takes the body up to a month. Now, after the removal, fresh skin will be left—which will be sensitive to anything applied on it. So, if you a user apply a body cream, face cream, or really anything to help the largest organ of the body (the skin), you’re boosting the results you’ll get.

For Tanning

Tanning is only effective when you exfoliate first. If you tan without first exfoliating, the results will be disappointing since there will be inconsistency in the effects produced by the tanning. On the other hand, if you use any of the body scrub (exfoliator) above, you’ll get satisfactory results. Also, the rate at which people tan is ever increasing since it protects against skin cancer so, you can likewise say the prevention of cancer is another benefit you get from tanning.

Overall Maintenance of the Skin

From maintaining skin tone to the treatment of acne, a body scrub will easily do it. It also gets rid of age spots and other effects of aging. On the part of men, a functional body scrub gets rid of razor bumps as well as getting rid of large pores. It’s in summary, a beauty maintenance product that every individual should have. Because after all, you’re taking care of an organ of yours (which in this case is the largest the body has).

How to Use

Massage the body scrub onto the skin using deep circular motions that’ll allow the scrub to seep into the skin pores where it will get rid of the dead skin cells. Start the use of the scrub on your arms, legs, and massage your way to your heart. Essentially, make sure that the scrub covers every inch of your body and also use it adequately for best results. Your skin will have a fine film of oil on it which is a heads-up so do not worry. After this, rinse well after which you can use a moisturizer followed by any cosmetic item of your choice. This boosts the efficacy of the item (cosmetic) you use. The results of all this are that your body will smell scented, and feel moisturized, soft, supple, rejuvenated, and smooth.

Product Criteria for Evaluation

This is our method of choosing items to review. Or better yet, this is how we choose the best body scrubs that you can invest in. Summarily, you too can use it to review and choose any item you want but that might hard to do (due to the amount of products online) which is why we make lists like this for you to pick from.

Manufacturer’s Reputation

We’re consumers/users also and we naturally trust the big and top companies since they only got to that point by making quality products. This is why we use the manufacturer’s reputation as one of the prerequisites for any product we review to get unto our list. It’s not like products made from unknown manufacturers are not good. As a matter of fact, they too sometimes make exceptional products which we’ll put on the list for you to pick. But as usual, these kinds of manufacturer make concessions by first delivering a budget device which will have a few missing features or reduced effectiveness.

So, this is why we make sure to pick items/products that users will like to have or at the end of it all, trust. After all, an excellent manufacturer has the best team, ingredients, equipment, and much more which will make it easy to make good items. Also, experience matters in the grand scheme of things—since without experience, equipment, funds, ingredients, and much more will be obsolete.

Ingredients and Their Effectiveness

Based on the ingredients used by these companies, you’ll either get good results that’ll satisfy most consumes or get bad results that’ll hinder further sales by the company. On the part of good sales, we pick the best manufacturers that use the best ingredients available (with their experience) to create exceptional products/item that mostly everyone will appreciate and like.

On that front, we definitely appreciate and like the products on this list mainly because all of their individual claims are true. Also, most of the products above mostly have natural ingredients which pose no literal side effect so you can and should use a body scrub. So, pick anyone you want—rest assured that you’re getting the best out there.

Reviews and Ratings

User reviews and ratings matter more than you think. We always thoroughly test all of our products but regardless, we still care about the opinions of other users. So, we keep an open mind to everything users say about any item we’re reviewing because their opinion might either put the item on our lists or further help our decision in excluding it. Summarily, if a user says he or she perhaps had a headache upon using an item we’re reviewing, we’ll exclude it ASAP. But if he or she mentions how wonderful the item is—well, the results are what you see above.

Price and Value

The price of a product is another thing to consider if you’re looking for any product or item you want to invest in. If a product has a nice price, we’ll be intrigued and we’ll check it out. After the investigation, and we find that the product is highly functional despite the price, we add it to the list. But if it’s not good, you’ll find no such item on our list. On the other hand, if the price is a bit high and it has good value, we might still add it to our reviews if we can’t find any alternative to its kind of capabilities (though—the price might be high and it will have no value whatsoever).

Most of the time, there’s always an alternative which is why we always go through hundreds of products to find the ones that have an exceptional balance of price and value. In regards to the previous statement, the products above are prime examples of what we mean since regardless of the one you pick, you’re getting great bang for buck.

Product Testing

Though this can’t be done by you, we’re still adding it to this section for the sake of credibility. We take particular care in intricately testing any and all product we review regardless of the price and especially because of the claims made by the manufacturers. If we don’t test it, we won’t know how effective or disappointing the subject (item) is. So, there’s an absolute must for us to pass the products above through various tests on different skin types to check whether or not they will deliver our kind of results.

If they don’t, then it’s not on this list—which simply means all the products above are the best in terms of function and effectiveness.
