    8 / 8 Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub ($54 for 250g)

    What we love about this foaming probiotic scrub is that it can be used not only on your scalp, but your body too. It has menthyl lactate (a compound that combines menthol and lactic acid) which gives a cooling sensation to help you relax. The scent is more subtle and soothing, and does not have the strong mint scent like some of the other products on this list, so this is perfect for people who are not into minty scents.
