We’re entering the fall season, which means it’s time for a new fall body care routine. Body care products with star ingredients like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, and more are popping up everywhere. Most skincare products on the market focus on your face, but your body needs love too! What better time to mix up your routine than the season with warm colors, cozy fabrics, cooler weather, and practically edible seasonal scents?
I found 15 fall body care products that exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize your skin with quality skincare ingredients as you embrace all the scents of fall. (If you have sensitive skin, you’ll find options for your body care needs, too.) Taking care of your body should be part of the fun of the fall season. Make every day an at-home spa experience with one (or multiple) products and have your best autumn skin yet.

Hempz always seems to come through with the creative (and delicious) fusions of seasonal scents. The subtle sweet apple and sandalwood scent reminds me of drinking tea while reading a good book by the fire. The aroma wraps around you with the nourishing fatty acids of the sunflower and hemp seed oils. In this natural physical exfoliant formula, vitamin C from the apple extract brightens your skin as the micro-bead-free walnut shell powder exfoliates dead skin from even the roughest areas. You will want to use this herbal fusion scrub throughout the fall season.
This season, your skin needs moisture and exfoliation, and this nice brown sugar scrub provides both! Brooklyn Botany has a range of body products, but none are as popular as their Brown Sugar Body Scrub. As an effective humectant and natural source of glycolic acid, brown sugar sloughs off the drier patches that pop up from drier air and harsher winds while leaving behind a hydrating sheen for that smooth, glowy look and feel. Sweet almond and jojoba oils nourish the most sensitive skin, and the subtle vanilla fruit extract will make you want to cozy up and bake cookies immediately after.
Wanna smell like a pumpkin spice latte? Tree Hut created your new favorite scrub. By combining spiced pumpkin, shea butter, sweet vanilla, and warm sandalwood, this vegan body scrub will leave you soft, smooth, and so ready for your next pumpkin spice latte run. Rich in vitamins A & E from the pumpkin enzymes and ultra-moisturizing from collagen-protecting shea butter, this fall exfoliation favorite could brighten up dull skin while evening out your skin tone. The nutmeg seed powder works as an anti-inflammatory to calm your skin and leaves a subtle allure of spice with that natural glow.
If coffee is life, then why not add to your shower routine? OGX brings you a two-for-one exfoliating and cleansing body wash that uses caffeine to remind you to wake up and firm your skin. Coffee has the natural antioxidant, chlorogenic acid, that reduce inflammation and protects against certain bacterias. The coconut oil-infused body wash adds the healthy dose of moisture you need after removing all those dead skin cells. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that this creamy body exfoliator is best used in the morning unless you need to stay up all night because you literally bathed in coffee.
If you have sensitive skin, it can be a hit or miss when it comes to exfoliating. Chemical exfoliants (aka, AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs) can be safer when formulated for sensitive skin, but sometimes you want physical exfoliation to feel smoother quicker. This Dove scrub is a great hypoallergenic formula that infuses colloidal oatmeal and calendula oil to prevent irritation and leave you with softer, more radiant skin. The natural floral scent is subtle and the formula mildly lathers with that iconic rich Dove moisture.
After an excellent exfoliating session, your skin needs nourishment. Naturium created a great line of body washes, but this hydrating oil-to-gel formula stood out in the reviews. The deeply hydrating plant-based oil blend includes fermented squalane that fortifies your skin barrier and gives a megadose of moisture to plump up your skin all over. The upcycled apple extract hydrates as the seabuckthorn oil brighten your skin tone. As the name suggests, this pH-balanced body wash will get you glowing.
Dry, sensitive, and reactive skin needs a little extra help when seasons change. CeraVe is one of the top body care brands that create fragrance-free, hypoallergenic products accepted by the National Eczema Association. This soothing body wash strengthens dry, sensitive, and itchy skin using hyaluronic and omega fatty acids like castor oil and three essential ceramides to rebuild eczema-prone skin. This soap-free body wash has a thinner consistency but still packs a punch for your sensitive skin.
If you want to feel pampered in a warm vanilla lather, Dove created this dermatologist-recommended body wash with deeply nourishing shea butter and their unique blend of probiotics in their Microbiome Nutrient Serum to strengthen your natural moisture barrier. It is an excellent option for your new fall body care routine that is also good for the environment with a 98% biodegradable formula – so win-win!
The aloe vera gel, flaxseed oil, and oat kernel extract create a moisturizing base for this dermatologically tested body wash. You’ll get a creamy yet clarifying lather that doesn’t dry out your skin and refreshes your shower routine. Using a clean and natural formula, Mrs. Meyer’s is a cruelty-free and paraben-free brand and uses recyclable packaging so you can enjoy your shower knowing you can do good for the environment.
What is fall without apple cider? Well, you can get a simple recipe and a gorgeously scented three-in-one fall body wash at the same time. The philosophy brand is known for its homemade recipes on the front of each bottle, and you can bet this apple cider version is delicious. You can use this for your dose of autumn apple cider as a shampoo, shower gel, or bubble bath, which means you can save time and money in your shower routine to get some other fall body care products on your list.
Apples and cinnamon go together like warm sweaters and fall weather. Hempz aced the equation with their popular apple and cinnamon shortbread-inspired moisturizer. The hemp seed oil formula includes shea butter for extra moisturizing fatty acids, while the apple extract provides anti-aging and skin-smoothing results. It’s no surprise that this limited edition moisturizer sells out often when the autumn winds arrive, so snag this fruity and spicy lotion before the holidays kick off!
Nivea is a body care staple in the skincare world. When they created this oil-infused lotion, they ensured it would also become a rotation in many people’s fall after-shower lineup. The almond oil absorbs quickly and leaves a non-greasy smooth sheen as their Nivea original cream formula provides moisture for 24+ hours. The vanilla scent is subtle enough not to interfere with other products or perfumes, and the lotion is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
If you prefer a light body oil for your after-shower routine, the Neutrogena Light Sesame Formula Body Oil is an excellent option. You can use it right out of the shower to lock in the moisture you added during your exfoliating and cleansing routine or use it in your next bath to get a soft luxurious glow. It’s also a great cuticle oil since it absorbs quickly and comes in a 16 oz bottle to last beyond the fall season. The scent is subtle and relaxing, so sit back and soak in the light sesame goodness.
Wanna smell like a vanilla cookie? Carol’s Daughter’s Almond Cookie Shea Souffle body butter is your best bet. Almond oil blends beautifully with shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa seed butter to soak into dry skin and leave a smoother surface. The aroma of this body butter cannot be overstated as they blended warm vanilla, tonka bean, and sweet marzipan to make sure you smell absolutely edible. The texture is soft enough to spread easily and absorbs well. No one would blame you for wanting to buy this in bulk.
Your hands, feet, and lips also deserve their own fall body care products. Every part of you should feel smooth and moisturized this autumn. Burt’s Bees agreed, so they launched this all-natural 6-piece set which includes: Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to nourish those nails, Hand Salve to protect against the elements, Original Beeswax Lip Balm for a hydrated pout, Res-Q Ointment to heal minor cuts, Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream to moisturize your hands, and Coconut Foot Cream to soften those rough spots. Each product smells divine and you can carry them in your bag, purse, or when traveling during the holidays.
