THE BEST BODY SCRUBS

The Sentinel - - BEAUTY COUNTER -

■ Elemis Lime and Ginger Salt Glow, £40.50, elemis. com: US­ING this makes you feel like you have spent an hour in a spa.

The salt scrub is not too abra­sive on skin but leaves it silky smooth. It smells di­vine too.

■ Soaper Du­per Zesty Lemon Body Scrub £7, Tesco: SLOUGH off dull win­ter skin with this fast and ef­fec­tive body scrub. The strong blast of lemon is a great wake-up call in the morn­ing and the scrub con­tains no colours, parabens, min­eral oils or the like so is per­fect for sen­si­tive skin.

It’s also good value as a lit­tle goes a long way.

■ The Body Shop Co­conut Ex­fo­li­at­ing Cream Body Scrub £15 (250ml), £6 (50ml): THE mo­ment I took the lid off this, I felt I had been trans­ported to far­w­away trop­i­cal climes. It smells gor­geous.

It is very thick, went on eas­ily and wasn’t too rough on the skin but it did take a long time to rinse off the residue af­ter­wards.

■ Ame­lio­rate Smooth­ing Body Ex­fo­liant £17.50, look­fan­tas­tic.com: RATHER than use in the bath or shower, you ap­ply this to dry skin then leave it for a few min­utes be­fore show­er­ing. It gives a re­ally ef­fec­tive, deep ex­fo­li­a­tion.

After a few uses my skin was no­tice­ably less bumpy. My only nig­gle – it smells a bit medic­i­nal.
