Iskra Lawrence’s skincare brand has gone totally viral on TikTok, and for very good reason.

Saltair is all about accessible luxury. The colorful line boasts exotic ingredient lists and intoxicating scents but is available at the drugstore prices we all love. We’re especially into the $12 serum body washes, which gently cleanse without stripping moisture from your skin. They also have amazing aromas that turn your shower into a miniature spa!

In honor of the body wash recently dropping at Target, we’ve used customer reviews to create a definitive ranking of the Saltair scents. (FYI — we’re going to get every single one. This is just the order in which we’re planning to try them out.)

Smells like: Orange, guava, musk, driftwood
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Ascorbyl glucoside, camu camu, passion fruit oil, niacinamide

Great for: Brightening

Once we read the review describing the aroma of Exotic Pulp as “a bright sunny day at the beach, on a lounge chair sipping a cool smoothie,” we were 100% sold. The formula includes ascorbyl glucoside, a derivative of vitamin C, that’s known for its anti-aging and protective qualities. Use Exotic Pulp body wash for a serious dose of hydration that leaves your skin absolutely radiant and, according to another reviewer, “smelling like an orange and pink starburst.” Honestly, we’re into it.

Smells like: Palm leaves, pear, lily, cactus flower
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Monoi oil, cupuaçu butter, kukui oil, ascorbyl glucoside, niacinamide

Great for: Balancing

Packed with sea fennel, willowherb and bamboo, Lush Greens is all about softness and moisture. One reviewer said it feels like “showering in a greenhouse” — a pretty compelling idea, if you ask us. The nutrient-dense biodegradable cleansing agents help even out your skin’s tone and texture while also calming down irritation. We’re totally loving the scent that one reviewer calls “delightful and fresh, energizing but not in a loud… way. More of a quick tropical storm that jazzes you up.”

Smells like: Rose, jasmine, sandalwood, amber, musk
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Monoi oil, cupuaçu butter, kukui oil, ascorbyl glucoside, niacinamide

Great for: Rejuvenating

Santal Bloom is one of the most iconic Saltair scents, and for good reason. Warm, luxurious sandalwood is not the sort of scent you usually find at drugstore prices. This wash is full of ingredients that will refresh your skin and help fade dark spots, and reviewers say it works: “I noticed that within less than a week my skin has been looking its best and even the little bumps on my arm are gone.” According to another reviewer, it also has scientifically proven relationship benefits: “I use this on casual errands and even date night. My man can’t keep his hands off me.”

Smells like: Mandarin, marine accords, white jasmine, ocean musk, amber
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Microalgae, andiroba oil, brazil nut oil, squalane

Great for: Hydrating

One enthusiastic Black Tide reviewer told us to “imagine a musky vanilla, with a glass of brandy while sitting by a fireplace, the smell of a cigar and leather oil in the air.” We did, and we’re sold. Black Tide boasts tons of nourishing ingredients that will pack your skin with moisture and leave it looking positively luminous. It’s also the most unisex of Saltair’s products. As another fan said, it “smells amazing, like spa water. The scent is neutral (NOT floral or sweet) so I can share it with my guy.”

Smells like: Grapefruit, ylang-ylang, white sand
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Quaternized hyaluronic acid, panthenol, fermented marine complex, polysaccharides

Great for: Nourishing

Seascape is full of dynamic ingredients like quaternized hyaluronic acid, which will continue hydrating your skin even after you wash it off. Go for this option if your skin is craving nourishment, toning and vibrancy. As one reviewer describes it perfectly, it’s “the ultimate clean scent — salty, fresh, warm sun draping over fresh laundry that is air drying by way of a gentle sea breeze.” We’ll be using this body wash during those cloudy days when we’re desperately craving an island vacation.

Smells like: Coconut, almond blossom, vanilla
$12 at Target

Key ingredients: Coconut oil, coconut phospholipids, fermented pink oil, sodium hyaluronate

Great for: Softening

If Seascape is a remote island getaway, Pink Beach is a vibrant tropical vacation. With two different coconut ingredients, it evokes the scent of suntan lotion in the very best way. This reviewer says it’s “the perfect mixture of fresh, beachy, and a little bit sweet.” It simultaneously cleanses and conditions, leaving your skin feeling fresh and incredibly smooth.
