Like most of Nécessaire’s wellness-inspired beauty products, The Body Exfoliator just looks chic. The brand has quickly gained a cult following with its clean ingredients and minimalist packaging. While some scrubs can feel harsh and actually have adverse effects, this one is great for people who are looking for a scrub that’s soothing and doesn’t feel like you’re using sandpaper on your skin.
The gel-like scrub exfoliates with a blend of acids (salicylic, glycolic, and lactic), as well as physical exfoliants like bamboo charcoal pumice. The soothing formula also features glycerin and marula seed oil, which moisturize, and niacinamide (aka vitamin B3), which strengthens the skin barrier. If you’re looking for something with a scent, the scrub also comes in sandalwood, eucalyptus, and bergamot.
