True Grit

Call us clean freaks, but here at W we love a good scrub. Here are some staff favorites.


“It smells so nice and fresh, and it’s gentle on my extremely sensitive skin.” – Anna Davidson, art director Kiehl’s Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub “Grapefruit,” $28;


“I like to use it to prep my legs for the beach, and I love that Caudalie products are all natural and paraben-free!” – Giovanna Campagna, assistant to the editor-in-chief Caudalie Divine Scrub, $38;


“I use high-grade derm-approved ingredients on my face, so why not bring the same wisdom below the neck? The glycolic acid provides a light overall body slough.” – Katie Becker, beauty editor Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash, $30,


“I use both the body scrub and face polish/mask weekly. For soft skin there is nothing better.” – Sarah Leon, web editor Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish, $65,


“This is my go-to to get rid of super dry skin.” – Lindsey Frugier, market editor Kiehl’s Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub “Coriander,” $28,


“This is perhaps the least sexy body scrub to have in your shower, but I don’t care. Though it’s intended for acne, the salicylic acid in it makes it perfect for overall exfoliation. And not to get TMI, but it’s amazing at helping to prevent ingrown hairs.” – Vanessa Lawrence, features writer Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash, $6.50,
