By now you should be familiar with Frank Body’s latest Shimmer Scrub (£16) a sparkly incarnation of its cult coffee exfoliators – but this time the ingredients are sugar, salt and mica – the latter bestows a gorgeous glow, so in effect you’re exfoliating and highlighting your limbs in one fell swoop. The waiting list currently stands at 50,000 (eek!) you can add your name here. But if you don’t want to wait till more come back in stock, here are three fantastic alternatives to scrub up with …

Ameliorate Body Polish
Commonly known as “chicken skin”, keratosis pilaris is that unsightly bumpy pigmentation that often occurs at the tops of the arms and legs. There’s currently no cure for it, but this clever scrub from Ameliorate is designed to reduce the symptoms with the help of lactic acid, which dissolve dead skin cells, together with microdermabrasion granules to create a smooth surface. While coconut oil and shea butter will leave your skin soft and nourished in the bargain. This is great for targeting ingrown hairs too. £17.50 Marks and Spencer

LUSH Buffy Body Butter
If you haven’t tried this exfoliating body butter bar – it’s the closest thing to heaven itself. With natural essential oils and butters, it gently sloughs away dead skin cells with ground rice, almonds and aduki beans, while delivering a good slug of lavender oil – famed for its ability to lift the spirits and hydrate skin to the max. Massage this into the skin whilst in the shower – a quick and easy way to get your skin in ship-shape and super smooth. £12.95 LUSH




Aesop Redemption Body Scrub
This brand new scrub from Aesop not only cuts a dashing figure on the bathroom shelf, with finely milled pumice and bamboo stem – whilst delivering a gorgeous smoky, alpine aroma of fir, pine needles, sage and clove to wake you out of your morning grump. The unisex scent and packaging makes it the perfect gift for the guys. £25
