Who doesn’t love a Cruelty Free Body Scrub? Nobody that’s who. I love the fact that today’s post is all about body scrubs and has nothing to do with washing a dog! Not that I don’t loooove washing Soda. Who doesn’t enjoy spending half their Saturday covered in suds and dog hair?
Today is all about those lotions and potions that leaving you scrub-a-dub fresh and smelling sweet. Here are my top 5 picks for the best Cruelty Free Body Scrubs out on the market today…
Editor’s Note: For more cruelty-free products, tips and ideas, see our Cruelty Free Living section.
1. Say Yes to Grapefruit Exfoliating Body Wash
A newbie on the market but a goodie. The reason this baby sits atop of my list? This scrumptious smelling scrub retails for $9.99. That’s right this gem with have your skin smoother and more toned for less than $10 – with no animals harmed in the process. Affordable and amazing.

2. Lush Buffy Bar
I bought this little guy about 3 months ago and I have fallen head over heels. Lush is know for their top notch cruelty free products but this one takes the cake. Ground rice, almonds and beans exfoliate you perfectly (it’s a surprisingly heavy duty scrub) but afterwards you’re magically moisturised – seriously smooth as a baby’s bot-bot! They tell me it’s the shea butters and cocoa that does the trick. Buffy – I heart you.

For those who are after something a little gentler, Aesop’s Geranium Leaf Body Scrub is for you. The refined gel is perfectly suited for sensitive skins and the fresh scent is the perfect morning pick me up. CLICK TO BUY: Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub
4. The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub
Everyone’s coconuts for coconuts these days (what with the coconut water, coconut butter, coconut shell bikinis…OK maybe got a bit carried away there) – but The Body Shop was way ahead with their Coconut Body Scrub being a long standing fave. The Community Trade virgin coconut oil leaves you with that coconutty scent and the texture leaves your skin silky smooth. A holiday favourite of mine!

5. Ultraceuticals Ultra Clear Exfoliating Gel
Last but definitely not least, this power packed gel is a secret weapon of mine. Filled with teeny tiny beads and chemical exfoliators AHA and BHA, they work together to leave your skin velvety smooth. Slather it on a leave for 10 minutes and you get an even deeper cleanse. It’s perfect for the day before a spray tan for an important event, giving your skin a perfectly smooth and hydrated foundation. CLICK TO BUY: Ultraceuticals Ultra Clear Exfoliating Gel

NOTE: Due to recent changes by a number of beauty companies selling products in China where animal testing is mandatory, Pretty Fluffy will be reviewing all previous Cruelty Free posts and updating where necessary. We will be updating our favourite lists in the coming weeks to ensure all products we recommend are internationally cruelty free. Vive la Bunnies!
