Top 3 Natural body scrubs
A high-quality, deliciously-scented body scrub is arguably one of the most luxurious bath and body products a mom-to-be can integrate into her beauty routine. The ritual of rubbing an indulgent scrub into your skin during a bath or shower is both relaxing and invigorating, and everyone can enjoy the benefits of silky soft, smooth skin that the gentle exfoliation leaves behind. We’d love to use our body scrubs for a daily dose of exfoliation, but since they’re not exactly cheap, we try our hardest to make them last, although they’re so amazing, we think they're worth every penny! Here are our current Top 3 favorite natural and luxurious body scrubs.

Why we love it:
This is one of those bath products that just makes you feel happy and beautiful. The clear glass container and simple chic label, the gorgeously feminine pink color, the light coconut-rose scent – it all makes for a truly pleasurable, indulgent bath and shower experience. Oh, and the product itself is great too! The formula is an all-natural, highly moisturizing blend of coconut oil and Moroccan Rose that gently exfoliates, leaving skin silky smooth. For all of the reasons listed above, we also feel it makes a lovely gift for other moms-to-be in your life. We sell it in The Nurtured 9 Pregnancy Shop!
Why we love it:
This all-natural body scrub from clean beauty brand Indie Lee combines coconut, lemongrass, lemon balm, jojoba, and vanilla, and smells amazing – almost like a warm and zesty lemon coconut cookie. If you find overly “natural” or “herby” smells off-putting (particularly during the morning-sickness-prone first trimester), we highly suggest reaching for this light, citrusy option to gently scrub away dead skin cells.
Why we love it:
Beautycounter is one of our favorite clean beauty brands that sells high quality products in simple, modern packaging. The company is committed to non-toxic beauty and has banned more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals in its products. We love this body scrub made with brown sugar and hydrating oils like primrose, apricot kernel, and sunflower. The refreshing “lemongrass” scent is bright and citrusy, and reminds us slightly of lemon-lime candies from our childhood.

Remember, every pregnancy is different, and we are not medical professionals, so if you’re concerned about any product we mention, please talk to your doctor to make sure you’re 100% comfortable with what you’re using on your body. We did our best to sort out what we feel are the best pregnancy-friendly options out there by conducting extensive research, including: talking with our own doctors, scouring the internet, sifting through product reviews, and chatting with other moms-to-be. We hope our research helps you find products that make you feel great!
