Users can’t stop raving about how great it smells (especially if you like ginger)! Although it makes skin very soft, some users do not like the oily feeling it has after scrubbing.

OUAI Scalp & Body Scrub sells as a scalp scrub to relieve itch and dryness. But you can just as well use it on the rest of your body!

Twice a week is enough to obtain super soft skin! You do need to use quite a lot of product though! Which is why most users choose to just use it on their scalps!

If you do use it on your scalp, it feels quite refreshing! And it does clear an itchy scalp well with use 1-2 times a week!

The base is coconut oil but users with oily scalps still find it compatible. And it doesn’t leave grease on your shower floor surprisingly!

There’s no denying the wonderful fragrance too! Which together with the comfortable texture, makes you want to use it all the time, if not for the cost!

The smell of it is light and fresh, and it provides decent exfoliation without irritating the skin!

Glycerin, shea butter and other hydrating ingredients are present. With safflower seed oil as the emollient to seal all that moisture!

This is not a body scrub for the gentlest of skins! Its coarseness led to one user wearing a glove while using it!

But it resolves those dry patches and is nourishing too. In fact, 98% of users recommend it on SheSpeaks.com.

Its only cons may be that artificial looking color and the use of fragrance!

11. Dove Exfoliate and Nourish Skin With Exfoliating Body Polish

Choose from many delicious flavors for the New Dove Exfoliate and Nourish Skin With Exfoliating Body Polish. Like macadamia and rice milk, kiwi seeds and cool aloe, and pomegranate seeds and shea butter.

As a body scrub, it’s gentle on the skin using seed powder. But mostly, hydrated silica which is derived from sand.

Reviews generally say that the body scrub smells nice (regardless of the flavor):

Apparently the kiwi seeds and cool aloe is subtler and smells more of shea butter than the pomegranate seeds and shea butter combination!

While the macadamia and rice milk has a sweet milky scent similar to macadamia ice cream.

Other than the smell, it rinses off with little effort and is pleasant to use. It’s gritty out of the tub, but feels softer once you add water. Just avoid using it on your face!

12. Odeon Face and Body Scrub Tumeric and Yoghurt

Though if you’re looking for more drastic results, you may not get them with this body scrub!

Some users say that it can be used on the face too. But we advise caution since it uses walnut shell powder, which can give rise to micro cuts in the skin! Or irritate sensitive skin!

It doesn’t feel too abrasive, and doubles up as body wash! The refreshing and lingering scent bids users to return to it again and again!

How To Choose The Best Body Scrub

For the sake of the environment:

Avoid using body scrubs with plastic microbeads! These get washed down the drain and into our waterways!

Anything natural and SLS-free is preferable. Thus, we try to include a good number of these into this review list of the best body scrubs in Malaysia!

Common natural exfoliating ingredients include:

  • Himalayan salt
  • Walnut husk
  • Rice husk
  • Sugar (granulated or brown) – gentle on the skin
  • Coffee grounds – to target those cellulite-prone areas!

And some scrubs offer moisture for dry skin too! Or the use of essential oils for some aromatherapy!

If you have sensitive or dry skin, look for scrubs that contain:

  • Oatmeal
  • Yoghurt
  • Aloe vera
  • Ground almonds

How Often Should You Use A Body Scrub?

Don’t go too crazy with a body scrub! 1-2 times per week as part of your body care routine is enough!

Conclusion

The best body scrub in Malaysia 2021 does not have to cost you a fortune! In fact, you can get a fully natural body scrub like the Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub (item 1) for a reasonable price.

Try to stick with natural products even though they cost more than drugstore products (like St. Ives Apricot Exfoliating Body Wash & Scrub, item 13) that you can find in Watsons.

Those with sensitive skin can try the Naam Oat’sy Bot’sy Body Scrub (item 8).
