Thanks to MUA or I'd never had known such a great product exists! I've been using Boots nylon gloves for years, and this just takes the biscuit! I love it! I feel so refreshed after each shower. I highly recommend it.
EDIT 28/10/2013: I have recently discovered A Bit Of Rough Exfoliating Cloths. MUCH BETTER! Salux worsened the little bumps of keratosis pilaris on my upper arms. This new cloth by "a bit of rough" takes it all away!
I'm officially never buying body scrubs ever again. Imagine a meshy-poof on steroids and you get this. Not only is it a fab exfoliator, it's much more hygienic (and dries faster) than loofas or meshy-poofs. I love how easily I can scrub my back (I get bacne, boo) and it's even helped with my KP on my arms. My legs have emerged smooth and soft from their wintertime crocodile-like state. I was afraid it might be too strong for my sometimes sensitive skin, but so far it's been great. Just be gentle the first time and find a good soap or body wash to use it with. I love mine so much I've bought several as gifts for my mum, sister, and the boyfriend. Highly, highly recommended and so cheap, why not try it?
Ahhhhhhh so awesome. Honestly. I bought this out of curiosity after reading all the rave reviews and used it for the first time this morning. I cannot stop feeling my legs they are so crazy smooth. Please give this a go, especially if you like the body shop style exfoliating gloves: this thing is another level, very slightly scratchier, plus you can reach your back. I live in the uk, and managed to find these on ebay for about £8.00 (including p&p) for two towels. Apparently they're going at space nk for £18.00! Honestly, I would have paid even that. Thanks MUA! My legs salute you. Roll on Summer.
I ordered this product after reading everyone's rave reviews, and I must say, count me in as a fan. I placed the order from the website on Sunday, and received my towel on Wednesday. At first the scrubbing seemed a little rough on my skin, but I got used to it very quickly. I use it with my body wash, it lathers up nicely, and scrub from neck to toe. My skin feels much softer and smoother after just a few days of use, and it even helped me get a closer shave. Best part is, since the towel is so long, I was able to scrub that one section of my back that I could never quite reach using a mesh sponge. I will definitely purchase this again.
Even though I only used this 3-4 times a week it was just too much for my skin. While it did prevent ingrown hairs on the back of my legs, I believe it also caused me to get small red dots on my arms. The dots look like tiny broken blood vessels. Now, I did use a light touch with this cloth, I wasn't aggressive in scrubbing my skin or anything. I do think that this is an o.k. product, it's just not right for my skin.
Ok So far I like this product. It is almost an ouch factor the first time i used it but i'm on my third use and i'm definately liking the roughness. It does leave my skin allot smoother (definately a plus for those who suffer from KP like me) which helps my moisturizer penetrate better. I wll update this review in acouple of weeks on whether it still works for me. I gave it four lippies because the packaging was kind of corny but overall i like it.
Ouch!! I'm not sure if my skin is extra sensitive, but this was seriously painful. My legs were all red and the skin hurt post shower.
The redeeming factor is that my skin was very soft- softer than it had ever been with any run-of-the-mill loofa.
I will not repurchase, because a) this was quite an expensive bath rag at $5.99 and b) although the results were ultimately good, the pain of getting them is not worth it to me.
I'll probably reserve this for less sensitive body parts, like my feet, that have thicker skin and won't be irritated as much. Maybe I'll use it every once in a while, but this will by no means be an everyday shower tool.
It's not a miracle, but it is a great exfoliating cloth, as everyone has described. In addition, it massages and helps build circulation everywhere you wash, which is nice. My legs and body wakes up very nicely in the morning when I wash with this.
This is terrific! I always fear my legs looking ashy and I don't feel those bath sponges do enough. Before I used to combine St.Ives Apricot scrub with soap with those scrubbie gloves thing, but I could not get my back. This is so much better. And I bought it for 3.00 at the Asian Grocery Store. For some reason they only had the color baby blue lol. I bought two. I have one up for swap for those who don't have access to one. update.I have been using this for a few weeks and i can honestly say this thing is a game changer for me.its doing a great job evening my skin tone and i look forward to taking showers and just scrubbing.i am so going to stock up on these
