  • Gives whitening effect
  • Gentle on the skin
  • Softens the skin


  • Causes the skin to be sensitive with sun exposure
  • Strong scent

If you want a body scrub to whiten dark areas on your skin, we highly recommend Gluta C Intense Whitening Body Scrub.

What we like most is that it has a glutathione ingredient that helps brighten dark areas of your skin, helping to give a fairer tone. In fact, we noticed that it has the best whitening effect on the skin compared to the other body scrubs on this list that we tested.

We also appreciate that it is gentle on the skin, given that it is a cream body scrub. After using this, we also noticed that it deliberately softens the skin after washing it off. 

The consistency is also applaudable because it isn’t too runny nor too viscous. As a result, it will not easily dissolve on your skin upon application, which maximizes its exfoliating power.

However, we observed that it has a strong scent so we do not recommend this for people with sensitive noses.

Based on our assessment, we also noticed that this body scrub could cause the skin to be sensitive to sun exposure. Because of this, we highly recommend that you use lotions with good sun protection capabilities while using this one.

Overall, we still like Gluta C Intense Whitening Body Scrub because its performance is top-notch and has proven positive results within months of use.

  • Affordable
  • Contains multiple moisturizing ingredients


  • Can be rough on the skin
  • Skin can be irritated

If you’re looking for an affordable body scrub, we suggest you try the A Bonne Milk Spa Body Bath Salt.

We like that for only Php 109, it can both moisturize and exfoliate the skin. 

Upon application, we noticed that a little goes a long way. The scrub gives off good coverage even with a small amount, so we think it will last for a long time.

We also like that it also contains prunus dulcis or almond, which helps in treating dry skin and improves acne. That said, we think this is great for people who want to address dryness or acne on their bodies.

It also contains yogurt extract that can help your skin retain moisture and prevent dry skin.

However, we observed that it can be rough on the skin. We attribute this to its ingredients which can be quite harsh.

Having said that, we don’t advise that you use this on sensitive and delicate areas such as your face. Instead, we believe it’s best applied on thick-skinned areas such as the back, knees, and shoulders.

We also recommend occasional use because daily exfoliation can be too harsh on the skin. 

When we tested this out, we noticed that it sometimes leave rashes on the skin. Hence, we suggest gentle application and to avoid excessive rubbing  so we highly recommend you use this gently on your skin as it may cause skin irritation.

  • Promotes skin regeneration
  • Good for all skin types
  • Rejuvenates the skin


  • Subpar packaging
  • Can only be purchased online

If you have sensitive skin and want to exfoliate without irritating it, we think that Strip It Oh Scrrrub Exfoliating Cream is the best option for you.

It has natural, irritant-free ingredients like pineapple and papaya extract which help make your skin softer and retain its ideal moisture level.

Upon use, we like that this scrub gives a gentle feeling thanks to its creamy consistency. When applied with water, it also doesn’t feel harsh on the skin so we think it’s perfect for those who don’t like abrasive scrubs.

Aside from that, we also admire its rejuvenating capability that brightens the skin. It contains virgin coconut oil which aids in skin regeneration and prevents fine lines, so we think it’s good to be used on underarms, too.

We think it’s great that it doesn’t just remove dead skin cells but also unclogs and cleans pores.

We also like that it’s suitable for different skin types and doesn’t aggravate breakouts. Thus, we believe it’s among the skin-friendliest scrubs on this list.

Strip It Oh Scrrrub Exfoliating Cream also helps to avoid pimples and acne production, which deserves plus points from us.

However, we noticed that the packaging is prone to leakage. Thus, we think they need to improve their subpar packaging into a more secure one, especially since they are only available online.

  • Enhances skin radiance
  • Contains a lot of moisturizing actives
  • Mostly made up of plant-based ingredients


  • Can only be used for mild exfoliation
  • Expensive

If you like plant-based skin care products, then we think that Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Body Scrub is an excellent fit for you.

We think it’s worth highlighting that they provide a comprehensive ingredients list. In our opinion, this is great for individuals who are particular about what’s in their body scrubs.

One of the most noteworthy ingredients on the list is bamboo extract. It’s known to promote collagen formation which, is great for those who want radiant skin.

Based on our experience, it gives glowing and brightening skin to its users. 

This ingredient is also helpful for skin suppleness and aids in moisture retention while keeping the skin plump and nourished. 

Because it has a lot of moisturizing actives, we believe it’s perfect for the face as well. So if you want to try exfoliating your face, you can apply it gently.

However, since it can only be used for mild exfoliation, we believe it’s not effective when used on the body, especially in areas that need regular exfoliation, like legs and arms. 

It’s also a bummer that it comes in small packaging, which doesn’t make it ideal to be used on large areas of your body. It’s expensive, too, so you may have to repurchase often.

Even then, we still like Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Body Scrub because it doesn’t irritate the skin and enhances its elasticity.

  • Has a lot of multiple moisturizing ingredients

  • May cause skin irritation
  • Takes long to whiten the skin

If you’re looking for a scrub with ultra-fine salt, we think that LUXE ORGANIX Niacinamide + Alpha Arbutin Velvet Shower Salt Scrub is suitable for you.

To start, it has the thinnest salt among the items on this list, making it extra gentle on the skin. We like that it doesn’t feel harsh but instead feels like a sheet mask because it helps the skin to be soft and delicate.

The after-feeling is also superb because it has multiple moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E which have anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, we believe you can still use it if you have acne on your back or butt.

Aside from that, we think it’s great if you want to exfoliate your underarms from time to time because it contains sunflower oil which helps boost collagen. 

Unfortunately, it takes a while to see results. Nevertheless, we like that it brightens skin with regular use, though you’ll have to be patient.

We also noticed that it might cause skin irritation. Hence, we highly recommend that users perform patch testing before applying it to their bodies.
