With one of our eight favorite scrubs you'll be polished to perfection in no time! Get ready to rock your favorite sundresses, sandals and swimsuits like never before.

Anese Hold My Drink Coconut Lip Scrub

$22, anese.co

Ever wonder why your lipstick begins to look flaky halfway through the night? Although you may apply lip balm religiously when your lips aren’t coated in color, without a little buffing action, flakes are pretty much inevitable. The same way your face needs to be exfoliated to buff away built-up dead skin cells, so do your lips. That’s where this killer 100% natural coconut and sugar cane scrub comes in. Simply rub it on your lips for gentle exfoliation that will leave your lips smoother than ever. Before you know it you’ll have your most perfect canvas for over-lined lips yet. And living in the land of Kylie, that’s pretty much the ultimate makeup goal.

And with a hint of delicately floral Moroccan Rose, you can expect to smell delicious all day long.

Deborah Lippmann Marshmallow Hand and Cuticle Scrub

$29, sephora.com

Despite being right in front of our face, not to mention one of the first places to show premature signs of aging, hands are so often neglected when it comes to moisturizing and exfoliating. This marshmallow hand cream, created to purify and revitalize skin by lifting dead skin cells from the surface to reveal soft, smooth, hydrated skin will help make up for it and will inspire you to never forget this V necessary part of your body again.

Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub

But first, coffee…amirite? The very beans that give you life each and every morning can revive your body, too! Formulated with roasted and ground Robusta Coffee Beans and pressed Sweet Almond Oil, this delicious scrub fights off dryness and fine lines with an army of Vitamins A, E and D to hydrate and nourish skin, while making it perkier than ever all from the comfort of your own shower.

Oh, but it gets better: the creators of this best-selling brand recently debuted their Shimmer Scrub, a limited edition scrub that turns your weekdays into weekends with serious glitter power that will make you feel like nothing short of a magical unicorn. Only problem is it’s currently completely sold out—because, I mean, who wouldn’t buy such a downright dreamy bath product? Luckily for us, good ol’ Frank realizes we all have a slight obsession with all things coffee, iridescent and mythical, so if you click over to their site you can sign a petition to bring back the mesmerizing must-try scrub.

You know the importance of gently exfoliating your face and buffing away the dead skin cells from the driest parts of your body—think: elbows, knees, hands and feet—but did you know that other softer parts of your body can benefit too? Look back at it and you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. While your booty might not look or feel dry, a little scrubbing action can go a long way. Rub this antioxidant-packed scrub across your bum to see for yourself. Formulated to smooth out stretch marks, fight cellulite and combat acne, this scrub is pretty much a dream come true for summer’s cheeky bikinis and short shorts.
