Body Exfoliation, which is better?

I've started to shop around to look for some good body scrub lately, but still haven't decided on which to buy. I have shortlisted a few, so, I have tried to gathered some info from the net for comparison:-

Biotherm Aquathermale body scrub
Product Description: A dual action body scrub gently buffs away dull and dead skin cells while micro-polishers smooth and refine skin surface. Skin is treated to a refreshing scrub, giving it a vibrant glow coupled with a silky smooth feel. Use once or twice a week, paying special attention to elbows, knees and heels for an all over velvety soft sensation.

Reason for shortlisting:
Familiarization. I'm currently using the Biotherm Aquasource product range, and find the high effectiveness on hydration as it has always been emphasizing and promising through the media. But still not sure about it's body care

Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub
Product Description: A gentle exfoliating scrub that removes dead skin cells whilst invigorating and helping to boost circulation. Leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and better prepared to absorb moisture

Reason for shortlisting:-
Body Shop has always been popular about its body care products, plus I always love gragefruit scent which make me feel refreshing.

Garnier Bodylight Brightening Exfoliating Scrub
Comment by

The Garnier Bodylight Scrub comes in a tube which is handy in the shower. The product looks rather like a yellow gel when squirted out of the tube, but do be warned that you don’t need much. It doesn’t look like there are any grains in it unlike most other body scrubs. I’m used to those with apricot kernals or ground bits of seed in it, but you don’t get that in the Garnier. What you get is hardish granules which I’m informed is sugar (it doesn’t attract ants though).

When rubbed on the body, the translucent yellow gel turns white and you can feel the hardish granules on the surface of your skin. It dissolves as you go along and I always take care never to rub too hard but as Garnier uses sugar as their exfoliating ingredient, I find that it does not scratch your skin unlike apricot kernals. A good rigorous scrub of the skin in the shower is enough to leave you with lovely soft skin when you step out, with a lingering scent of lemons.

It is recommended that you use the scrub twice a week. I used it about 2-3 times a week and a tube will last you about 1.5-2 months. However, for this one month, I found that the skin on my arms and legs were smooth and nice, with no rough bits especially around the elbows and knees.

Reason for shortlisting:-
It's attractive price at RM19.90 plus the good comment from, plus the strong commercials. However I wonder, with this price, will the desired effectiveness be there?

Oh, I need some advice please !
