    So, I've ran out of my VirginVie body lemon salt stuff which is fabulous but can anyone recommend something different?

    I want to try something a bit more effective.

    What do others use?

    Sugar surprisingly is good and cheap. You can perfume it by adding essential oils. Better done in the shower though.

    Body shop do some lovely natural body scrubs.

    I'm allergic to half of their stuff, which makes me think that they lie about the quality of their ingredients...

    No baby! It totally wouldn't work as an exfoliator!! It has nothing in it to help remove impurities from the skin.

    Urgh, imagine putting friggin olive oil on your skin. Just how...how ghetto.

    White spirit, then. It's really good for getting paint off of your skin, so it must be doing something good :p:
