The Best Body Exfoliators
Dermadoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Body Scrub
A mild paste of lactic acid and micro-beads is oil-free and lightly hydrating, leaving skin “perfectly smooth.”
To buy: $44, dermadoctor.com.
Olay Body Wash Plus Spa Exfoliating Ribbons
Round beads in this body wash-and-exfoliator combo polished skin, while its “sudsy foam” cleansed.
To buy: $6, at drugstores.
Best for Hard-to-Reach Areas
Dermalogica the Ultimate Buffing Cloth
The scarf-size exfoliating towel (used with or without body wash) is ideal for hitting tricky places, like your back. “At 36 inches long, it’s easy to maneuver,” one staffer said.
To buy: $12, amazon.com.
Best for Dry Skin
Le Couvent des Minimes Invigorating Salt Scrub
Testers loved that this mixture of oils and sea salt made skin “supple and moisturized.” Another perk: the lemony scent.
