It’s shocking how often we forget about cleaning our backs. It’s just another part of the body that gets rinsed in the shower, right? Well, not scrubbing your back doesn’t just lead to annoying itches, it also causes things like the dreaded backne (back acne) to pop up (eugh).
With our 15 best back scrubbers on the market, there is no space that cannot be reached. No itch that cannot be scratched. You will finally have the freedom to clean and scrub your back exactly the way it deserves.
We’ve been testing tirelessly, scrubbing our backs until there is nothing left to scrub. We’ve tried them all and used every method known to man in order to bring you results and tips, unlike anything you’ve experienced.

Bubbles for Bubbles
Covered in tiny silicone bubbles, this board has comfortable handles that will make scrubbing a lot easier and more enjoyable during your showers or bubble baths.
Each side has a different concentration of bubbles depending on how much exfoliation you want, providing a surprisingly soft touch that won’t irritate your skin but will prevent nasty cases of backne and blackheads from appearing.

Caught in the Net
Netting might sound like a rough and coarse material, but it actually feels pretty good and does a great job exfoliating your skin so that you end up with a back that is soft and free from grime (what we all want in life).
It gets rid of that rough skin, loose cells, and helps to create a fantastic lather when it is used with soap and water.
What’s more, it’s an eco-friendly option that comes in several colours to give you a personal touch.
Cheap and cheerful, it’s a quick and easy way to get your back looking its best again and really working out that nasty grime and preventing the dreaded backne from making an appearance.
It comes with long cleansing spikes to really work those pores as well as a flatter scrubber so that you can exfoliate your skin and get it back to being nice and soft again.
ut it’s marketed as a washing-up brush? Yeah, we know, but trust us when we say it’s great for your back.
