3 Cruelty-Free Body Scrubs Under £5

A good body scrub is something that should be in everyone's beauty collection, so today I'm going to share with you three cruelty-free options that come in at under £5!

Gently Does It...
If you have particularly sensitive skin that gets irritated easily by body scrubs then I would recommend the Original Source Daily Scrub. It's essentially a shower gel that has little exfoliant beads in, so it's very gentle but still leaves my skin soft. I really like the smell of tea tree, it just makes me feel clean, so that's the one I have but I'm sure they do other scents if it's not your cup of tea(tree). Hahahaha. Excuse that terrible joke, pls thank u. I personally don't think this is heavy-duty enough for winter but it would be a lovely summer exfoliant for when your skin isn't so dry and flaky! I got this for Christmas, but you can get it in most supermarkets for about £2.50-ish.
If You Like It Rough...
If gentle scrubs aren't your thing and you want something a bit more heavy duty then try the Lush Sugar Scrub. I reviewed this a little while ago and whilst my review wasn't exactly positive, I think it's because of how sensitive my skin is. My mum prefers a more coarse exfoliant so this would be perfect for her, but I'm a bit more of a delicate flower. You can find this solid body scrub in Lush for £2.95.
The Happy Medium...
The award for my favourite scrub of the bunch goes to the Superdrug Vitamin E Sugar & Oil scrub. This scrub strikes the perfect balance between too soft and too coarse and is lovely to use. My only annoyance is the fact that you have to scoop it out of the tub, so I always end up with a little bit of water in there and it makes it go a bit mushy. But I do love this scrub and it's a great dupe for the Soap & Glory Flake Away! You can get this scrub from Superdrug for £4.99.
All three of these scrubs are cruelty-free, of course, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. They're very gentle on your bank balance, too!


  1. Superdrug's Sugar and Oil scrub is one of my absolute favourites! I ran out recently and I'm so gutted haha, I have so many others to work through so I haven't repurchased yet but it's so, so lovely.

  2. I didn't realise that Original Source was cruelty free! I love the Superdrug one though, all of their range is amazing! XX

  4. I love that Body Shop range! Definitely going to try and pick that scrub up this weekend to try and sort out my winter skin. And 100% agreed on the Lush one hahah, works well but leaves my skin so red and raw! x

  5. The Superdrug scrub is my absolutely favourite, I love it and I always have a tub in the shower! I am quite tempted by the LUSH scrub though, I'll have to have a look next time I go there :) xx


  6. I could do with a new body scrub - definitely got my eye on that Superdrug one now!
