Biotherm Celluli Laser Scrub (HK$260/200ml)

Claim: a slimming exfoliator that heats, smoothes and preps the skin for Biotherm's Celluli Laser Gel. To be applied on dry skin, its thick texture allows for an intense cellulite-combating massage at home. Rating:

Sisley Energizing Foaming Exfoliant for the Body (HK$700/ 150ml)

Claim: a cleansing, exfoliating foaming fluid gel designed to improve skin tone and enhance radiance. Contains gentian root extract that stimulates and works as a local toner. Rating:

Omorovicza Gold Sugar Body Scrub (HK$700/200 ml), available at Joyce Beauty

Claim: cane sugar gently exfoliates and leaves skin radiant and soft. Gold particles' anti-inflammatory effect relieves sun damage. Apricot kernel oil nourishes while vitamin C adds glow. Rating:

The verdict: pre-shower application makes Biotherm's scrub a somewhat messy affair, although it delivers on the warming promise and washes off more easily than expected. Sisley's rosemary and lavender scent is refreshing and the microspheres make for a gentler polish than the others. But Omorovicza wins hands down for sheer luxe factor, and leaves the skin baby-smooth.
