Nécessaire's Body Scrub Makes Your Skin Soft, and It Won't Leave a Mess in the Shower
There are many reasons I was drawn to Nécessaire's The Body Exfoliator: One, I loved that it came in a fragrance-free formula, because I find myself becoming more and more sensitive to fragrances over the years; two, the minimalistic branding was super Instagram-worthy with its simple typeface and simple packaging; and three, the squeeze bottle seemed easy to use, compared to other body scrubs I've used in the past whose bottles create a mess in the shower.
The brand has quickly created a cult following with its products that have clean ingredients and chic 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. I'm also a fan of the brand's fragrance-free body wash as well.
The gel-like scrub exfoliates with a blend of acids and 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 as well as eucalyptus. I also really like the fact that the product doesn't leave a layer of oil on your skin afterward. It's a good product to use when you're in a rush but you still want to get the job done.
Ahead, shop the $30 scrub if you're in the market for something that's easy and effective.
