Love this product. It is a good exfoliator. And it is easy to use because it is like you're just rubbing your body with your hands. So it obviously wins in the ergonomic design category.
I've used this with shower gels, bath gels, soaps and natural soaps (ose dudu/ african black soap)
My only qualm is that it doesn't lather up that well although the body shop site says it will increase your lather.
It does get rid of the dead skin cells a lot better than a body buff and it is very easy to use
God I love these gloves. They have seriously changed my skin for the better. They work a million times better than any body scrub I've ever owned. My skin feels so much cleaner and softer after using these--also way fewer ingrown hairs on my legs.
My only complaint is that they're a little small (but I have long fingers) and they would never fit men's hands. Also, if you're not careful I could see these stretching out/tearing/unraveling easily if you treat them roughly. Luckily they're pretty cheap so it's not the end of the world if you ruin them. Definitely worth a try!
love these. they take every soap and body wash into exfoliating scrubs. with these,you never need to buy body scrubs. you can get these from drug stores, but I think the TBS one has greater quality
I love these gloves for the back of my arms, it really smooths the bumpiness out, doesn't work quite so well on my thighs but there's a definite improvement. They're better than any scrub I've used at any rate!
Back in my uni days this pair of gloves actually got rid of my back acne. If you are on a budget and looking for an effective exfoliator for your body, this is it. It always gives me soft, smooth skin and so easy to use since it well "fits like a glove" and wouldn't slip off soapy hands.
I totally forgot about making a review about my all time staple for several years - these gloves.
So here goes:
I use them, whenever I'm showering and always get compliments on my skin (I'm 41).
Soft, smooth, clear, radiant skin - is what I get.
Since I use them almost daily, I tend to forget what worth they have in my beauty regime. However, not bringing them along a 2 week vacation makes me miss them alot more than anticipated, and I see my skin getting a bit rougher and dryer.
I've tried several kinds of Exfoliating remedies from lofas to brushes, but I've ended up repurchasing these gloves as they do the best for my sensitive skin.
Will never stop repurchasing, even though they last a long time and are really inexpensive.
What they do to skin is magic.
I really like these gloves. They exfoliate well and you can use them with every body wash! They last a really long time too but sometimes I find them too rough for my skin.
I LOVE these and repurchased a couple of times, but they last a long time! My problem is that I lose them somehow when moving houses etc. I use these with body scrub (mainly on my legs) for exfoliating and helping to remove ingrown hair. Definetly worth your money!
these are great but if you have sensitives skin they hurt but only a little. I dont use them often but they are great to have,especially bfore putting on a self tanner
I've bought various versions of exfoliating gloves from supermarkets, discount stores, beauty stores, etc, thinking how different can all these gloves really be for the Body Shop to charge more? Well, there really is a difference. The BS's version is more abrasive so I feel like I'm actually giving myself a proper exfoliation. The elasticity in the BS version is superior so that it fits my hand better and has better traction/grip on my body so that when I'm rubbing back and forth, the glove doesn't feel like it's losing grip on my skin with the glove going one way and my hand the other. I also find the glove lathers up really nicely; obviously not to extremes like the pouff, but I don't need that amount of lather. The BS glove also maintains its shape and lasts way longer than cheaper gloves on the market. I like the nice touch with the hooks on the gloves so that they can be hung in the shower. I also really like that these are gloves rather than pouffs, loofahs, cloths, etc as anything in glove/hand form is going to be easier to use as it'll enable better grip and maneouvreability.
In terms of exfoliating power/abrasiveness, there's only the Salux cloth that beats the BS gloves for exfoliation, but unfortunately, the Salux only comes in a cloth and not as gloves, which makes it quite hard to use and which means I'll always have the BS gloves in my shower.
